In today’s episode, we speak to investing reporter for Business Insider, Laila Maidan. She tells us how it was her career in foreign policy and international relations, during which time she worked for the United Nations, that she became motivated to share global developments with the general public, and hence switched to a career in journalism.
Laila is now a reporter in Business Insider’s markets division and her coverage predominantly focuses on cryptocurrencies, the stock market, and trading strategies. She is particularly passionate about sharing the stories of people who have overcome struggles and attained ‘financial freedom’ by growing their personal wealth. It is actually through one of these stories that we came across Laila; we discuss this and others during the episode, as well as recent trends in the world of blockchain.
You can find links to the articles we mention below, as well Laila’s profile.
Please note, this episode is not financial advice.
