We’re joined by wealth strategist, best-selling author, chartered accountant and certified property investment adviser, Salena Kulkarni.
In this episode, Salena shares her journey in taking the ‘non-traditional Asian path’, her personal relationship she has with wealth and the time her parents tried to set her up in an arranged marriage halfway across the world.
Over the last 12 years, Salena has run a high-end boutique wealth building service called Inkosi Wealth, where she’s helped hundreds of investors build wealth using off-market opportunities backed by real property, she calls “alternative investments” - investments that outperform the market and offer measurable return on investments.
Salena also hosts her own podcast called The Alternative Investing Podcast, sharing tactics, strategies and ideas to help people reach financial freedom in a fast and safe way.
