Rank #2: 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 #8: 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.

Rank #11: 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.

You may remember my guest today from my episode entitled Minimalism for Everyone. I’ve been blogging friends with Cait Flanders for almost four years now and I’ve loved following her blog writing.

She’s hosting an ongoing Uber Frugal Month Challenge with over 9,900 participants to give her, and you, the tools needed to combat impulse spending. Melanie will be challenging herself with a no-spend day. Shannon suggests a “clear the pantry” challenge where you have to use whatever is in your fridge and freezer to create meals. Tonya says she is not good at challenges in general and relies on self-discipline to achieve her goals. She took a quiz by Gretchen Ruben to help her understand her personality and why she responds to expectations the way she does. Find new ways to challenge yourself to do and achieve more financially! Focus on mindset more than anything else if you want to make a serious change.
