Jennifer Wilkov, Speak Up Women Founder & Producer

Jennifer Wilkov is our So Money guest today. She is a woman who survived being victimized by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office and incarcerated in one of New York’s and the Nation’s most violent prisons, Rikers Island. Why? Because this was a result of inappropriately being told to plead guilty to a crime she did not commit, she says.

Shortly thereafter, the financial industry regulatory authority exonerated her, claiming she was innocent and Jennifer went on to continue to succeed as an author, a media personality, an entrepreneur and a speaker. Today, she is the founder and producer of Speak Up Women because she wants women to speak up. That’s one thing that she felt she couldn’t do at the time of her imprisonment. Today, she is a number one radio show host, a number one international best-selling award winning author. Can you believe it? Somebody who goes through such a tragedy is able to now come out on the other side of that not only helping herself but helping so many other women.

I won’t say anything more, you’ll have to tune in to hear more. This episode is going to change your life.
