Maria Nedeva from academia to launching The Money Principle blog - MAF147

My guest this week is business school professor, Maria Nedeva.

We talk about her academic career and how it led her to launch The Money Principle blog where she helps people to grow income, end debt, build wealth and love their lives.

Welcome to episode 147 of the Marketing and Finance Podcast.  

We chat about:

  • The four pillars of the Game of Wealth
  • Igniting the spark of curiosity in young people about money
  • How to refocus from teaching to learning
  • How massive personal debt led to Maria deciding to launch The Money Principle blog
  • Why baby boomers might be a better obsession for marketers than millennials

Who is Maria Nedeva?

Maria is Professor of Science and Innovation Dynamics and Policy at the Manchester Business School. She teaches students about innovation, policy and creativity and talks to Prime Ministers about how best to spend the science budget of their countries.

Massive consumer debt motivated her to learn all about personal finance and she launched The Money Principle to help people grow their income, eliminate debt, build wealth and most importantly love their lives.
