    Can I afford to have a baby? | Taboo money chats with Rachel Maksimovic

    Can I afford to have a baby? | Taboo money chats with Rachel Maksimovic

    How much does it actually cost to have a baby? On today's episode Rachel Maksimovic, solo mum and co-host of her own podcast Mothering on my Own shares how much it has cost her.
    As we enter our late 20s, we have started to feel a societal pressure to consider whether or not we want to have kids. With more people getting married and moving onto the "next step" of starting a family, we always thought that having a baby was the norm. But the more conversations we have, the more we realise that having a baby is a financial luxury (in fact, more than 50% of Australians have reported this).
    Five years on from having her son Lenny, Rach shares with us how she's navigated the financial challenges that have arisen with solo parenting, and how she's been able to lean on her community to save money and support others, all by having more open and honest conversations.
    But the conversation doesn't end here... Parents, we want your thoughts!
    How much has it cost you to have a baby?What have been the most unexpected expense?Have you experienced raising a child on your own? Do you have any 'singles' tax stories?

    It costs how much to attend a wedding? | Taboo money chats with Rhi Joyce

    It costs how much to attend a wedding? | Taboo money chats with Rhi Joyce

    Moving into your late 20s and into your 30s means your social calendar shifts from birthdays to wedding season! And boy does wedding season hurt the bank account. Don't get us wrong, we absolutely love, love and there is no better experience that watching people closest to you tie the knot, but wedding culture has become, well, expensive.
    The other shift is that your social media slowly becomes more "adult", commenting congratulations on the new house, rather than posting the good old fashion party pic (shout out to the Jeffrey Campbell era)!
    This week, we chat with the powerhouse, Rhi Joyce, about navigating comparison as we move into our 30s. Whether it be budgeting for, or working out when it is ok to say no, or setting realistic expectations for your property goals so that you don't overwhelm your bank balance - Rhi provides a refreshing perspective on navigating it all.
    But the conversation doesn't end here... we want your thoughts!
    What are your thoughts on wedding culture? Have you struggled to keep up with it financially?Do you feel disassociated from the housing market? Or struggling to understand how much you will really need for a house?How much do you contribute to wedding presents?

    What to do about the lifestyle creep | Taboo money chats with Dyl Buckley

    What to do about the lifestyle creep | Taboo money chats with Dyl Buckley

    The saying goes that comparison is the thief of joy. But when it comes to your finances, comparison can also seriously derail your financial goals. It's true, most of us will experience the lifestyle creep to some degree throughout our lifetime... particularly in a time where comparison is rife on social media. Who can blame you if your first thought when receiving a pay rise is to treat yourself!
    This week, Mads and Soph chat with Dyl Buckley about each of their experiences "keeping up with the Jones'". We discuss how Dyl's money mentality has been shaped by his family experiences growing up, how he navigated fluctuating pay as a football player, some of his biggest money mistakes (and what he learnt!), and how to align your spending with things you truly value.
    But the conversation doesn't end here... we want your thoughts!
    Have you succumbed to the lifestyle creep? Was there a way to break the cycle?How does comparison influence the way you spend money?What are your core values that you will always spend money on?

    Would you split the bill based on how much you earn? | Taboo money chats with Kath Ebbs

    Would you split the bill based on how much you earn? | Taboo money chats with Kath Ebbs

    The saying, "don't broach topics of sex, religion, or politics," is widely known, and truthfully, money has consistently found a place within that. The fact of the matter is, money is still a taboo topic, and we aren't properly educated on how to approach conversations about our finances. This summer series is here to break down that barrier, and give you the conversation starters you need to broach money chats in your own life. 
    This week, Mads and Soph are chatting with the wonderful and very transparent Kath Ebbs. In part one they ask how social norms influence our views on money, and if you’d be open to splitting the bill with friends based on your income or savings balance. In part two, they discuss life as a freelancer, including the dilemma of navigating how much to charge, and valuing yourself as "the brand" versus "the person". 
    But the conversation doesn't end here... we want your thoughts!
    Would you split the bill based on what you got paid?Have you struggled navigating pay as a freelancer?

Helping me to teach my kids

While I’ve been in the stock and crypto markets for years….I’m boring mum at the end of the day. Sophie and Maddie help me get the investing messages across to my daughters in a fun and energetic way. We don’t just watch Disney, we invest !! With my teen on the cusp of her first job she’s already planning her first ETF. Well done on a fantastic podcast and we also love your Tik Tok. Tanya

Good for starting out

Great for starting out and the ladies are very enthusiastic, but similar to equity mates get started investing podcast, can be repetitive.
