Meet Danielle Desir
Host of The Thought Card Podcast
The Financially Savvy Traveler
If you ever wanted to afford to travel more, pay off debt and build wealth then you’re in the right place!
I’m Danielle Desir and welcome to my affordable travel finance podcast. I’m an author, travel and personal finance writer, podcaster and speaker.
On the show, we talk about how to find the best travel deals, fabulous travel destinations, practical tips for saving money, investing, homeownership and so much more.
Money impacts nearly everything we do so why not be honest and transparent about it and most of all help each other by sharing what we’ve learned along the way.
In my spare time I enjoy visiting local breweries, hiking and finding breathtaking viewpoints and listening to informative podcasts. I also go to spin class every week and I enjoy long distance running. When I’m not creating content online, you can find me leading WOC Podcasters, a community of women of color podcasters with over 2,500 members from 50+ countries!
