    Getting Financially Naked with Will Paybarah

    Getting Financially Naked with Will Paybarah

    At the Financial Gym, we call the first meeting you have with a trainer, the “financially naked session”. In this meeting, you share everything about yourself financially so the trainer knows where you’re starting so that he or she can make the plan for how you can get where you want to go. Above all other meetings, this one scares clients the most because they are afraid or ashamed of their financial situation. A year ago on this podcast, I shared my financially naked session and it led to a request for more. Now this is a regular series on this podcast. 
    Getting in the hot seat today is Financial Gym client Will. If you pay attention to podcast art, Will is actually the designer of Martinis and Your Money’s new podcast art, as well as the art for our new Financial Gym focused podcast called Financially Naked. Will joins me today to share his digits, his side hustling, and his journey with The Financial Gym.

    In Her Sight with Ursula Mead

    In Her Sight with Ursula Mead

    Longtime listeners of the podcast will know that I’ve had my fair share of stories from being one of the only women on the trading floor, early in my career. I think feeling safe, or at least aware, of what your workplace culture will be like before you start is important. 
    There are a lot of websites where you can read reviews about potential employers and get an insight into what the company culture is like, but what if there was a site that reviewed how female friendly a potential workplace was?
    Joining me today is Ursula Mead, the cofounder and CEO of InHerSight — a website where women can evaluate jobs and companies and get help finding a company that is the right fit.

    Financially Intentional with Naseema McElroy

    Financially Intentional with Naseema McElroy

    Welcome to a new year and a new decade! I’m not a fan of New Year’s resolutions, but I am a big fan of setting goals and anything that will motivate you to stick with those goals. That’s why I thought I would kick off the year with Naseema, founder of Financially Intentional, and a woman who set a big goal for herself — to pay off over six figures of debt in less than three years. 
    Naseema joins me today to share how she got herself into this debt and how she got out of it, so she could build generational wealth for her family.

    2019 Year End Review with the Happy Hour Ladies

    2019 Year End Review with the Happy Hour Ladies

    Today is the last Friday of the month and my regular listeners know that on the last Friday of the month, I host a happy hour on the podcast where I gather great friends with me to drink cheap drinks and talk about money topics.
    Today is not only the last Friday of the month, it’s actually the last Friday of the year. Every year for the past four years, the Happy Hour Ladies and I share our year in review, and we discuss the highs and lows of the year that’s about to end and then share our goals for the upcoming year. I love recording happy hours, but these year end episodes are always my favorite.

    Angel Investing with Charlie O’Donnell

    Angel Investing with Charlie O’Donnell

    At the end of every show, I ask for your suggestions on show topics and I love them, so keep them coming. Today’s show is a direct answer to podcast listener Erin’s request. She emailed me and said, “Going off of your episode on entrepreneurship, which broached the topic of angel investing, I would love to hear a show talking about the due diligence process and how more women can get their feet wet on the active investing side of things!”
    The Financial Gym wouldn’t exist without Angel Investing, so I was excited to tackle this subject. Joining me today is Charlie O’Donnell, founder of Brooklyn Bridge Ventures. He was the lead investor in the Financial Gym’s seed round of funding and he is going to talk about the process of investing in startups and the best way to manage Angel Investing.

    Meal Prepping with Talia Koren

    Meal Prepping with Talia Koren

    I have been helping people get financially fit for over seven years now. People ask me all the time about the quickest way to get financially healthy and the first place I tell them to look is their food spending. After your mortgage or rent, and possibly your student loan payment, the next largest monthly expense in almost everyone’s budget is food. Food was a huge problem area for me before I got financially healthy, and I made a number of excuses as to why I couldn’t change my ways. Well, we’re heading into a new year and a new decade so let’s stop the excuses.
    Joining me today to help you make smarter food spending choices is Talia Koren, founder of work week lunch. She’s going to share lots of important tips and tricks to help you save money in one of your largest spending areas.
