Meeta Gupta, a seasoned finance professional, with an MBA in Finance from the Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management, Mumbai (1992) is passionate about empowering women and transforming their financial wellbeing. She has over 30 years of experience in the field of finance and has worked with corporates like Deutsche Bank, L&T FHL and many more.
In 2020, she stepped away from an active corporate career to launch her passion venture Moolah. Her dream was to free women from years of social conditioning and shift their general mindset that “Finance is not for women.”
As a Financial Life Coach, Meeta wants every woman to attain financial freedom and firmly believes that it is not just desirable but is essential for every woman to achieve financial independence.
As a finance professional, I have often wondered why women shy away from finance. Is it our deep-rooted social conditioning that finance is not for women, that women find finance more intimidating as compared to men; or is it that women are made to believe that they will be taken care of and so they need not bother to learn about financial matters?
I have always believed that these feelings of dependence, gullibility, or the need to be taken care of stems from a resounding lack of financial independence for women. I also believe that finance is made out to be a far more ferocious beast than it really is, and that it can be made simple, fun, and approachable. Enter Moolah!
To make finance easily palatable, I decided to start using the utilitarian medium of Whatsapp to deliver these daily doses of financial learning. I had only one hope—that eventually, every woman could start to feel more secure, independent, and comfortable when it came to managing their own or their family finances. Moolah aims to provide women a safe place to learn and grow out of their fears of finance without the fear of being judged or criticized.
I believe that every single woman is worthy of, and capable of achieving the life of her dreams. And though our circumstances, and these dreams may differ for each of us, I know that financial empowerment is the key to them all. My dream is to financially empower each and every one of you, and put you on the path to being your best self.
So here’s to strong women—may we know them, may we be them, may we raise them, [and may we make sure that they’re all part of the Moolah tribe 😉 ]
Meeta firmly believes that women deserve to be financially empowered and are worthy of it. By changing their ‘mindset’, overcoming their inner fears and fostering the desire to empower themselves they can easily take charge of their finances. Gaining ‘knowledge’ is the next step.
Meeta’s financial coaching is for women who want to begin this journey towards self-empowerment. She believes that slowly and steadily women should feel comfortable in taking the financial reins in their own hands and take steps towards making financial decisions for themselves and their family.
Apart from her time at Moolah, Meeta loves to travel, read books on philosophy and is passionate about photography. Seldom does she leave a chance to explore a new place and can often be seen with her camera, exploring interesting scenes or just sitting with a book mulling over something interesting that she read.
