Ep 207: How To Make Good Decisions During Uncertain Times

4/1/2020
It may only be a few weeks since you first heard of Coronavirus, but chances are that it’s already changed your life — or the lives of people you love — perhaps drastically, perhaps forever. March was officially Wall Street’s worst month since 2008, when the S&P 500 fell nearly 13%, and the the COVID-19 crisis that tipped it all off has left millions of us unsure what’s happening. We may be unsure what’s next with our jobs and income, our children's’ education, our loved one’s health, our...

Ep 206: How Your Portfolio Can Weather The Coronavirus Storm, With Fidelity’s Jeanne Thompson

3/25/2020
What a year this month has been... Starting on March 9th, we watched as the Dow began a series of record-setting point drops. Then on March 11th, the World Health Organization announced what many of us probably already suspected — that COVID-19 was officially a pandemic. The market volatility that we have seen the last few days has understandably left many of us on edge, and according to a new survey from Fidelity, 70% of people are either somewhat concerned or very concerned about how the...

Ep 203: What We Can Learn From Dominatrixes About How To Get Everything We Want

3/4/2020
In today’s episode we’re going to dip our toes into some interesting waters that may be uncharted for you: Dominatrixes.

Ep 202: Something Missing From Your Day To Day? How To Form True Connections At Work

2/26/2020
Not all of us love our jobs. I know, I know: You’re not supposed to say such things in an era when everyone’s supposed to love what they do from sun-up to sun-down... But as much as we're told that our jobs should inspire passion and we should adore every task our bosses assign us (just check your social media feeds) some of us simply don’t like what we do. Perhaps we haven’t found our calling, or maybe we haven’t found a place where we can grow, or it could be that we just need a new...

To say “I love you” to our HerMoney family this Valentine’s Day, we’re bringing you a special love and money-themed mailbag episode and we’re tackling all your questions on the topic. Perhaps The Beatles said it best when they wrote that “money can’t buy me love.” While this is certainly true, money can improve your bargaining position, and having enough of it can absolutely make life easier.

Ep 198: How To Protect Yourself From The Latest (And Incredibly Clever) Scams, With Frank Abagnale

1/29/2020
Unfortunately, identity fraud is everywhere. In 2017, more than 6% of consumers fell victim to it, and 33% of adults in the U.S. have experienced identity theft of some sort. Every day, credit card numbers are swiped, and fraudsters are constantly thinking of increasingly clever ways to text, email, call, or otherwise hack their way into our lives. What does this mean for all of us? It means we have to take additional steps to ensure our own security, particularly where technology is...

Ep 197: Living Childfree And Making Empowered Decisions Around Motherhood

1/22/2020
We live in a world where women can choose to do and become anything we want… CEOs, engineers, cops, military generals, second-act career-starters, the list goes on. And in the same way that women are intentionally choosing and celebrating the things they want to become, they’re also intentionally avoiding what they don’t — and one of those things is motherhood. The birthrate in the U.S. hit a 30-year low in 2018, dropping to 3.8 million births, according to The National Center For Health...

Ep 196: How To Successfully Take A Career Break

1/15/2020
While care-taking for those we love most can be a beautiful, wouldn’t-have-it-any-other-way experience, we often pay a substantial price. Our time out of the workforce reduces our earning power by an average of 18%, and that number goes up to 37% when our breaks last three years or longer. While those numbers are sobering, they don’t change the realities of life. According to the Harvard Business Review, 43% of women with children leave their careers or take a career break, and 24% of women...

We're tackling all of the above, and diving into the emotional ties we all have to the four walls that surround us, and to the possessions we have inside them.
