What Nobody Tells You About Your Money

I’ve been fortunate enough to be a guest on a lot of different podcasts lately where I get to share my own money story. Inevitably, I’m always asked, “What is your best money advice.” I love that question because it gives me a chance to talk about those things that seemingly no one talks about when it comes to your money.

On This Podcast Episode:

Working with people over the last 12 years, I’ve seen a lot about how people manage their finances – the good and not-so-good ways. What I have learned, regardless of the income, is there are a lot of things that no one tells you about your money.

In this episode, I’m dishing my top five things that I believe no one really talks about when it comes to money but really should. I think if we did, maybe we might all be able to breathe a sigh of relief.

I’ve been a fan of the No, You Go podcast for a while now and was so excited to be able to do a podcast swap. They are three badass women who share in frank, funny, and honest discussions about lots of issues in life that we’re all trying to figure out.

Saying I Do – Wedding Do’s and Don’ts with Bridechilla Host Aleisha McCormack

The average cost of a wedding in the U.S. is $33,391 according to Business Insider and from my experience, many of us spend money on items in our wedding that might not be the most beneficial to our bank account. I recently was a guest on Aleisha McCormak’s Bridechilla podcast, so I figured it would great to have Aleisha share with you some of her favorite wedding do’s and don’ts when it comes to spending your cash.

On This Podcast Episode:

She’s a comedian and a TV presenter from the U.K. who turned her wisdom from planning her own wedding into a top-rated iTunes podcast, Bridechilla. Seriously, even if you aren’t planning a wedding, you’re going to enjoy hearing Aleisha dish wisdom about some of her favorite wedding do’s and don’ts – including her f**k it bucket suggestion – and how to survive the day as stress-free as humanly possible.

Demystifying The New Marriage Trend – The Postnup with Jennifer Guimond-Quigley + Ask Shannah

Ok, let’s get real for a minute here.

We’re all familiar with the term prenup, whether you’re a fan or not. However, did you know that there is a new marriage trend – the postnuptial agreement? Just as it sounds, it’s a legal agreement that is formed after you’re married for a myriad of reasons. Let’s go straight to the source, Chicago-based attorney Jennifer Guimond-Quigley to demystify this new marriage trend.

On This Podcast Episode:

As controversial as they might be, if you’re thinking about a prenup or a postnup, the first place you should start is getting some education around these hot-button documents. Jennifer Guimond-Quigley is joining us on this episode to demystify what you need to know about prenups, and breaking down the differences between postnups in a fun and an easily digestible way (no crazy lawyer speak here, just a totally educational and enjoyable conversation).

Jennifer is the owner and managing attorney at the Law Office of Jennifer Guimond-Quigley.  She realized early on in law school that she had a passion for family law and estate planning. After gaining experience in these two areas both during and after law school, Jennifer decided to start her own firm. With her solo practice, Jennifer loves having the freedom to collaborate with her clients to achieve the best results possible without the limiting constraints common to practicing with larger firms (and she’s kicking butt doing so).

Connecting Your Health And Your Wealth – Jillian Tuchman, Care/of

I’ll be the first to admit it – it took me a while to realize that there is a strong connection between your health and your wealth. When you don’t feel good you tend to make choices in life that make you feel better – like shopping, eating out, overspending, etc. It’s a natural reaction that we all take part in. While spending money has the ability to soothe us when we don’t feel good, it can cause havoc to our bank accounts.

On This Podcast Episode:

I’m chatting with Head of Nutrition for Care/of, Jillian Tuchman, MS, RDN, all about the powerful connection that exists between health and wealth.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • Why you eat how you feel…and how to avoid it
  • Are all these new diet fads really worth the expense
  • How to approach the holidays so you can stay healthy (and not break the bank)
  • Why you need to be your #1 advocate in all areas of life
  • How to live a healthier lifestyle for free
