    4. How can I get on the property ladder?

    Are you looking to buy your first property but you don’t know where to start? Maybe you already have some savings and you want to learn more about the mortgage process? And what about the costs that follow after you’ve purchased your first home, how do you decorate on a shoestring budget? 
    Jade Vanriel is a property influencer who became a homeowner at the age of 23 without financial help from her parents. She first started working aged 16 and saved until she had enough for a deposit, making sacrifices along the way to reach her goal of buying her first property. 
    Today, Jade shares her early financial memories that shaped her money mindset and the simple habits she adopted to help her save money and get on the property ladder as soon as possible. 
    We talk about how to be in the best position to get your first mortgage, the home buying process and some mistakes you can easily avoid - like getting too emotionally attached to a property before it’s yours. 
    Jade believes “everyone can buy a property” - so if you’re dreaming of owning your own place Jade’s super inspiring journey will empower you to get on the property ladder.

    3. Launching a business with no money

    Have you ever wanted to start your own business, only to be deterred by the financial headache it would incur? Or wondered how on Earth single mothers are able to seemingly juggle it all - raising kids, running a business, and managing finances?
    Launching a business is a dream for many, but getting started can be tough. It takes a certain money mindset to get going, and today we'll be hearing from the awesome Carrie-Anne of super cool mama merch brand Mere Soeur on how she did it.
    Carrie-Anne talks to us about the key drivers as well as the main difficulties she faced when she got started, how she manages today and the importance of breaking stereotypes surrounding single motherhood.

    2. How am I repaying my £27k credit card debt?

    2. How am I repaying my £27k credit card debt?

    Debt is scary. One in two adults with debt has a mental health problem. The shame surrounding the topic of debt makes people even less reluctant to discuss it. Yet debt is also incredibly common - up to 8.3 million people in the UK are unable to pay off debts or household bills. 
    Clare Seal was one of the many adults who found herself in spiralling debt, spread across seven different credit cards. She set out to document her debt repayment journey through @myfrugalyear - an Instagram account that's now become a tight-knit community.
    We speak to Clare about how she got into and tackled her debt, the stigma attached to discussing debt and how her community helped her stay accountable. 
    Since recording the podcast, Clare managed to repay even more of her credit card debt and she now has an outstanding balance of slightly more than £11k!
    Clare’s book “Real Life Money: An Honest Guide to Taking Control of Your Finances” is out now and available from Amazon - you can also pre-order The Real Life Money Journal here. If you need debt advice you can reach out to StepChange as recommended by Clare. And if you’re struggling with mental health, don’t hesitate to visit and contact Mind or The Samaritans.

    1. How to ask for more money at work?

    1. How to ask for more money at work?

    Welcome to The Wallet, with me Emilie Bellet, founder of Vestpod.com
    The Wallet is here to help you make better financial decisions by talking honestly about money. 
    Have you ever discussed your salary details with friends or colleagues? How does the idea of doing that make you feel? Most of us wouldn't ever dream of going into the details of our earnings because well, it just feels awkward. We also fear coming across as greedy, crass, or even difficult when we ask for more. 
    But asking for more is crucial. On average, women earn £260k less than men over the span of their careers. Add coronavirus to the mix, and you have even more dire, long-lasting repercussions on our salaries.
    This week’s guest is Vestpod’s long time ambassador Vivien Adeosun. Vivien tells us how she went about getting 3 promotions and 3 significant pay rises in the last six years and today she is going to share her journey to help us all, basically, get paid!
