How to Untie the Knot & Financially Survive Divorce - Kelly LaVallie, CPA and Author of Untying the Knot
No one gets married thinking that they’ll get divorced one day. Unfortunately, not all marriages last and if you find yourself in this position, who do you turn to when it comes to getting help with your finances? This week on the podcast, I have CPA and author of Untying the Knot Kelly LaVallie who joins me to discuss how to navigate the complexities of untying your finances from your ex and how to start again on a good financial foot. Kelly LaVallie is the President of LaVallie & Associates Advisory Services Ltd. with over 25 years of experience in the accounting world. After years of seeing her clients go through divorce and only being able to provide limited financial support, she made the choice to transition her firm into one that worked exclusively with clients in the stages of divorce. Not only that, this year she released her first book, Untying the Knot - Protecting Your Emotional and Financial Health During Divorce, to help better answer people's financial questions about divorce and share how taking back control of your finances can be incredibly empowering when starting a new life for yourself.

Have you ever felt like you aren’t being seen or heard at the office? Or have you experienced micro-aggressions from your co-workers before? Unfortunately, you’re not alone. After writing an article in the New York Times called “How to Succeed When You’re Marginalized or Discriminated Against at Work,” my guest and journalist Alan Henry went on to write his newly released book Seen, Heard, and Paid, a book all about navigating toxic work environments and giving marginalized groups of people the tools they need to succeed in their careers. Alan Henry is a prominent journalist, editor, and author. He was previously the Smarter Living editor at The New York Times and the editor-in-chief of the productivity and lifestyle blog Lifehacker. He is now the author of the newly released book, Seen, Heard, and Paid: The New Work Rules for the Marginalized and is the senior editor at Wired.

He also shares what language to use when you experience microaggressions at work and also what quantifies as a microaggression. Alan shares the importance of having “psychology safety” at work and why his most significant tip is to keep a work diary. This is a jam-packed conversation you don’t want to miss!

How One Man Changed Investing Forever - Eric Balchunas, Author of The Bogle Effect
If you’re an avid listener of the More Money Podcast, then you'll know that I’m a big fan of index investing and playing the long game when it comes to growing your money. But, how and when did index investing start? Luckily my guest today, author Eric Balchunas, is sharing the history of the index fund and how one man named Jack changed Wall Street forever in his new book The Bogle Effect. Eric Balchunas is Senior ETF Analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence, where he leads the ETF and fund research and contributes to Bloomberg Opinion. He is also the co-creator of the Bloomberg podcast Trillions and Bloomberg TV’s ETF IQ. He’s the author of The Bogle Effect (2022) and The Institutional ETF Toolbox (2016). In today’s episode, we learn more about the founder of the index fund and the Vanguard Group, John Clifton “Jack” Bogle. Eric deep dives into how index funds changed Wall Street, which we're still seeing the effects of in today's investing landscape. Eric is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to index investing and ETFs. I loved being able to pick his brain and get him to share his opinion on cryptocurrency and “vanilla” vs. “hot sauce” investing. I hope you enjoy this episode too!
