Buckle up, and know that it’s going to be a tremendous amount of work, but embrace it.” -- Tory Burch 🙋

Welcome to our last summer edit,

It has been a crazy week at Vestpod, as we welcomed Emma Simpson of BBC News for an afternoon in our office (i.e. co-working space)! We talked about the anniversary of the financial crisis, my mission with Vestpod and the need for financial education. I will also go for a live interview on Thursday! Just want to say thank you for all your support pre- and post- interview...💛

The good news this week is that… our workshops are back! Whether you want to learn about something new, such as investing for beginners or crypto, or whether you want to join one of our advanced sessions for more seasoned investors, we’ve got you covered. It’s always great to meet up and chat personal finance! Only £10 for new workshops with the code “NEWATVESTPOD”.

We will be back with the full Vestpod edit next week!
