The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

Seeing things from a different point of view can really refresh how you understand things and change how you do things. On this episode, I’ll be chatting with Salena Kulkarni who is an expert in finance and real estate. She brings a whole new perspective not just from her side of the world but from how she sees leverage and diversification in different ways.

Salena shares her unconventional way of joining the finance world and gives us a taste of where her drive and passion for the field comes from. She shares some helpful tips and strategies that will help specifically with investing in property. She also gives advice on the biggest challenges faced by investors and why wealth does not equal freedom.
