    Money Talk | Money and Relationships

    Money Talk | Money and Relationships

    Welcome to the Savvy Mumma podcast, starting a money conversation relevant for Mums who are busy juggling life, careers and households. 

    Our relationship with ‘Money’ and 'Money in our Relationships, it’s a big beast.  It plays out in so many ways with so many complexities.   

    If you've ever argued about money in your relationship, I'm pretty confident that if you peeled back enough layers you would find that the arguments are not actually about the money at all. They are about something deeper – your values, your beliefs, your hopes, dreams and your fears.

    In this ‘Money Talk’ I share with you how to uncover your personal money story (because this is who we are and what we know about money),  how to tackle the money conversation with your partner in a meaningful way and how to pave your own money story going forward and have a new lens on money in your relationship (which will be the key to getting you from where you are to where you want to be).

    The Emotional Side Of Money

    The Emotional Side Of Money

    Welcome back to the Savvy Mumma podcast, starting a money conversation relevant for Mums who are busy juggling life, careers and households. 

    Our relationship with money is often complex and to have a great relationship with it and a sense of success with it, we need to focus on more than just the practical side of managing it.    

    There are psychological and behavioural drivers that play a huge role in our overall financial wellbeing and they have very close links to our mental health, our sense of self-worth and our deep-seeded money story.

    We cover some big themes in this episode and explore why knowing something and doing something are worlds apart, how to put the brakes on self-sabotage, why we fall into traps such as ‘retail therapy’, how to tame our inner critic and very importantly how to adopt good habits that stick.

    Gaining confidence and clarity in your career!

    Gaining confidence and clarity in your career!

    Welcome back to the Savvy Mumma podcast, starting a money conversation relevant for Mums who are busy juggling life, careers and households. 

    We so often talk about what we should do with our money once we've got it, but we also need to pay some attention to the inputs of our financial situation.  And for most of us that is derived via our careers (our income!!).  We spend a big chunk of our lives working to support ourselves and our lifestyles, so we should be putting our best foot forward to get paid our worth!

    Em Pescott from Promotable You joins me in this episode and shares all her wisdom on ditching those limiting beliefs that are holding you back; we talk navigating maternity leave, redundancies, finding balance, career transitions, how to gain clarity and confidence and the importance of articulating your value to get that payrise!

    Ladies - it's time to be Super smart!

    Ladies - it's time to be Super smart!

    Welcome back to the Savvy Mumma podcast, starting a money conversation relevant for Mums who are busy juggling life, careers and households. 

    There are some frightening statistics floating around about the health of our super – did you know that on average women retire with almost half the superannuation balance of men?

    It’s staggering but doesn’t take long to realise why.  We get paid less, it's common that we are out the workforce to play a parenting or caregiving role and many of us work part-time.  We are simply not participating in the compulsory super environment at the same rate as men, so we are missing out!

    Pauline Taylor joins me for this very important conversation and shares her insights, wisdom and tips for closing the gap.  Pauline is one of the most passionate advocates for women’s financial literacy and wants women to see that being ‘super smart’ is their pathway to financial freedom.

    Life insurance - what is it and why do you need it?!

    Life insurance - what is it and why do you need it?!

    Welcome back to the Savvy Mumma podcast, starting a money conversation relevant for Mums who are busy juggling life, careers and households. 

    This week we are tackling another very important topic, one that everyone needs to consider and given our last conversation was about estate planning, I thought we'd stick with the worst-case-planning theme.  I've invited in a friend, former colleague and senior manager at one of Australia's retail insurance companies, Rachael Harney, to join me in having the life insurance conversation, because let's face it, these tough conversations are better shared! 

    We tackle why personal insurances are (very) important to consider, the different types of insurances that are available and what they do, how to know if you’ve got a policy that will pay out, and the importance of seeking the assistance of a financial adviser to help you determine the amount of cover you need and how to best structure it.

    It's a complex area, so we've included a handout in the link below to break it down a little further.
