Money can be very personal and emotional, so let’s start the conversation in a chilled, low-key environment. No lecturing, no selling. Just talking and sharing ideas. It doesn’t matter how much you earn. My question is: does it make you happy and how are you managing what you have? Vestpod is your money tribe, a safe space to talk about money and feel good about it. My goal is to support you to build better money habits, learn about finances and connect with like-minded people.

Housing: Getting on The Property Ladder & Renting Better

A kick-ass panel of women discussing “Getting on the property ladder and renting better”, followed by a Q&A and then drinks. Should I buy or should I rent? We can’t answer this for you but we will discuss both options and find you the best renting tips and buying strategies. We’ll talk landlord practices, saving for a deposit, negotiating a mortgage and more.

Join Jade Vanriel (property YouTuber), Sarah Davidson (knowledge & product editor at This is Money at the MailOnline) and Vicky Spratt (writer, campaigner passionate about protecting tenants).

From savings and pensions to discussing the gender pay gap and fighting for a pay rise, Laura and Emilie are on a mission to debunk the financial jargon and break the taboos around money. Come and be part of this important conversation and discover how talking about money can actually change your life.
