The Journey To Launch Podcast is hosted by Jamila Souffrant, a wife, mom of three, and a Certified Financial Education Instructor (CFEI). On her podcast, she explores saving, budgeting, investing, wealth building, entrepreneurship, and early retirement.
Jamila is also the personal finance expert on a weekly segment that airs on News 12 Brooklyn & News 12 Bronx in New York, and she's often a guest on other personal finance podcasts in addition to her own production.
Along with her husband, Jamila is in the pursuit of financial independence and hopes to achieve it in five years. Last year they saved and invested $85,000, and now she wants to teach you the same strategies she used so you can save more money at your income level.
Sharing her financial knowledge, personal experiences, and great podcast guests she is accomplishing just that for many.
I want to teach you what I’ve learned through a little trial and error and a lot of discipline over the years. My goal is to help you eliminate debt, save more money and increase your net worth. ~ Jamila Souffrant
Jamila brings lots of energy and personal finance know-how to her show and engages her guests well with relevant questions and enthusiastic dialogue.
The Journey To Launch Podcast episodes are not always with a guest though. At times they are instructional with Jamila only. In Episode 8, for example, she details how to get out of, and stay out of, debt. But whether Jamila is solo or interviewing another, the episodes are always informational and entertaining.
