Your twenties is usually the time when you start earning your first pay cheques, but how much of it should you be saving? How do you go about investing? Or should you just spend it all on traveling the world? Questions most of us ask ourselves in our twenties which is why I invited Natascha Wegelin aka Madame Moneypenny on to the podcast.
Natascha is a 32 years old and lives in Berlin. After short employment periods at big brands such as Google and Parship, she decided to found her own company in 2012 at the age of 26 – WG-Gesucht.de – now Germany’s third largest flatmate search portal. At the beginning of 2017, she sold part of the company to ImmobilienScout24 for a seven-figure sum. Since the beginning of 2016, Natascha has been running madamemoneypenny.de, the largest financial blog for women and one of the largest financial blogs in Germany. With the blog, her podcast and the Facebook group for women only, she wants to encourage, inspire and at the same time support women with concrete tools to take their finances into their own hands and become independent.
Listen in to hear about:
- Natascha’s story and how she ended up talking & teaching about money, saving and investing – with the focus on educating women
- The first steps you can take to get your financial stuff together in your twenties
