Investing That Makes an Impact – Swell

Socially conscious investing has been on the mind of many of our listeners over the past few months – i.e. my email has been blowing up lately about this topic. The idea that investing can make an impact seems almost too good to be true.

I was so excited to find Swell, a company that is devoted to just that – impact investing and not only the chance to do good but also for good returns.

In the past, it has always seemed that you had to make a choice. Either you could invest in social conscious funds or you could invest in funds that would offer a good return. Thank you Swell for offering us both.

On This Podcast Episode:

  • I chat with Swell CEO and Founder, Dave Fanger about why Swell and why now
  • We discuss the trends in impact investing
  • Why Swell is devoting itself to 6 key socially conscious areas

Creative Ways to Pay for Your Wedding

It’s wedding season and that means it’s time to talk about creative ways to pay for your wedding. The potential costs of a wedding are mindboggling –recent Knot survey says the average U.S. couple spends an estimated $32,641 on their wedding.

On This Podcast Episode:

  • I’m dishing some of my favorite ways to save money on your nuptials
