Rank #1: The Millennial Money Problem, with Douglas Boneparth

Podcast cover
Read more

The current financial planning model stinks - especially for millennials!

Douglas Boneparth, President of Bonefide Wealth and Co-Author of the book, Millennial Money Fix joins me today to talk about what exactly the millennial money problem is and how it can be fixed. As an added bonus we also get into some reasons why the current financial planning model stinks, especially for Millennials, and how you can find a good financial planner to work with.

My biggest takeaway is millennial money problems are actually not a problem for just millennials. Financial literacy is a problem that plagues all generations but with all of the tools and resources available now, it hopefully will not remain a problem for future generations.

Rank #3: Shannon’s Financially Naked Session

Podcast cover
Read more

At the Financial Gym, we call the first time our clients meet with their financial trainers, and share all of their financial details, the financially naked session. It’s typically a meeting where a lot of clients start out anxious and honestly a number of people avoid joining the financial gym out of the fear and shame they have around their money situation and I want to tell you that no matter what your situation you shouldn’t feel that way. The only reason you could possibly feel like that is if you’re not willing to do anything about changing your money situation. To help anyone out there who may be feeling bad about their financial situation, today, I’m going to let you know you’re not alone.

Today, I’m sharing with you my financial situation ALL of the numbers and all of the details. I have been just about all of our clients at some point in my adult life and you’re about to find out why. Joining me to hear all the dirt is one of my all time favorite trainers at the gym, Joy.

Rank #10: Broke Millenial Happy Hour

Podcast cover

A special happy hour as we welcome Erin Lowry, personal finance expert and author of the new book Broke Millennial – Stop Scraping by and Get your Financial Life Together. Erin will always hold a special place in my heart and for this show as she was actually the first guest ever of Martinis and Your Money.

Rank #15: Financial Anxiety with Amanda Clayman

Podcast cover
Read more

In my seven years of helping people get financially healthy, a common emotion I’ve seen from clients is anxiety. We have clients avoid their first sessions with us, avoid quarterly reviews, or avoid their trainers totally, because of the anxiety their financial situation brings up in them. In fact, this episode was inspired by a long-term client of the Gym, who asked her trainer if I could do a show around financial anxiety. Despite the fact she is experiencing great success around her money, she can’t kick the anxiety it brings her.

Today I invited my friend, Amanda Clayman, Financial Therapist and Financial Wellness Advocate for Prudential, to discuss the topic of financial anxiety, including how common it is and how we can manage it in our lives. This is a really important topic for everyone and I hope it helps a lot of people out there.

In this meeting, you share everything about yourself financially so the trainer knows where you’re starting so that he or she can make the plan for how you can get where you want to go. Above all other meetings, this one scares clients the most because they are afraid or ashamed of their financial situation. A year ago on this podcast, I shared my financially naked session and it led to a request for more. Now this is a regular series on this podcast. 

Getting in the hot seat today is Financial Gym client Will.

There are a lot of websites where you can read reviews about potential employers and get an insight into what the company culture is like, but what if there was a site that reviewed how female friendly a potential workplace was?

Joining me today is Ursula Mead, the cofounder and CEO of InHerSight — a website where women can evaluate jobs and companies and get help finding a company that is the right fit.

Pros and Cons of Working Nine-to-Five with the Happy Hour Ladies

Podcast cover
Read more

This month, I’ve had a theme of entrepreneurship, and we are continuing that theme to happy hour. All of the happy hour ladies have worked traditional nine-to-five jobs and started their own businesses.

Today we discuss, as we discuss all things, honestly the pros and cons of both career choices and whether or not we could go back to a nine-to-five job after being entrepreneurs.

Continuing my entrepreneurs theme of the month, I’m introducing you to an entrepreneur who is my woman crush in every way imaginable. Hitha Palepu is an Entrepreneur, Angel Investor, Author and Consummate Multi-hyphenate as she says. Hitha joins me today to share her personal entrepreneur journey through three businesses and why she loves investing in other founders.

As a side note, I’m apologizing in advance for my sound quality. We recorded the entire episode only to find out my mic wasn’t captured. So for my sound snobs, I apologize in advance. The good news is that Hitha does most of the talking and she sounds great!
