Ep344: Bridging Wealth Gaps with Nav.it Co-Founder Maia Monell
February 27, 2023
In a world where wealth inequality is rampant and financial health is often overlooked, Maia Monell stands out as a beacon of hope. As a founding member of BridgeAthletic, Maia saw firsthand how a person’s financial and mental health can have a big effect on how well they do physically. This made her want to start Nav.it, a platform for personalized financial coaching that helps people learn how to create lasting behavioral change around financial habits.
Maia’s expertise in brand strategy and community management has been a big part of Nav.it’s impressive growth and success, helping the company add new distribution channels and grow by 150% in the last year. As a female entrepreneur and thought leader in the fintech space, Maia is determined to change the narrative around money and create a more inclusive, positive, and practical experience for everyone.
The wealth gap in the US is a well-known issue, and it stems from a lack of access and education. The top earners have easier access to good credit and ways to make money, which creates a systemic problem where the rich get richer and the poor struggle to get ahead. This is particularly true for women, who frequently encounter barriers when trying to access credit and financial services because of institutionalized gender bias.
Maia’s work is a powerful example of how one person can make a difference in creating a more equitable society. She recognizes that achieving financial wellness is crucial to bridging the wealth gap and that doing so calls for both systemic change and focused interventions. Her approach is grounded in the belief that investing in women and supporting their unique needs is key to creating a more equitable and just society.
