    The Team Approach to

    Financial Wellness

    Episode 158























































































    Financial wellness is the state of being where you can meet your current and future financial obligations, feel secure in your financial future, and make choices that allow you to enjoy life. It is about money, but more. It is about feeling comfortable and at peace with your financial decision-making, and sometimes involves working with a financial planner and a wealth psychology coach.

    In today’s episode, I talk with Carolyn McClanahan, CFP® and founder of Life Planning Partners, about how we collaborate together to increase the financial well-being of our shared clients. Carolyn worked as a physician before she became a financial planner and discusses the similarity between medicine and financial planning. And I worked as a mental health counselor for 15 years, before opening up my business. We both believe a team approach is just what the doctor ordered when it comes to financial wellness.              











    Listen to this podcast and discover:



    The value of the team approach to enhancing financial wellbeing

    Why some advisors are resistant to working with wealth psychology coaches (or financial therapists) 

    The boundaries of financial planning vs. wealth psychology coaching 

    The signs that tell a planner it’s time to make a referral 

    How working with other planners and coaches fosters self-awareness and personal growth - for you and the clients

    Episode 153























































































    Did you know that only 24 states in the United States require a high school personal finance course to be offered to its students? Most school systems that do require it don’t make it mandatory for graduation. The result is many young people are not adequately prepared to manage money responsibly as adults.

    Today’s guest, Michelle Arpin Begina, CFP®, CIMA®, is an advisor and changemaker who decided to take action in her home state of New Jersey. She contacted her local legislators, joined a task force charged with updating the financial literacy standards and was instrumental in getting behavioral finance added to the curriculum. This podcast is about how she went from being curious about the financial literacy problem in our country to being an agent of change.











    Listen to this podcast and discover:



    Why personal finance education should be offered in schools throughout the United States

    How some parents may not be equipped to teach their kids how to responsibly manage money

    Why behavioral finance should be included in the financial literacy standards

    The steps you need to take to advocate for change in financial education in your state



    Resources on financial literacy:

Love this!

I love these podcasts! Kathleen Burns Kingsbury has such a relatable voice, and asks insightful questions of her diverse roster of interesting guests. Plus, what a great idea to talk about money myths, as there are so many we all grew up with and continue to perpetuate. I found that the 20-minute length was really manageable, and made the information easily digestible. I ended up listening to several, rather than putting off listening, at all, as I might have done with a longer podcast. I found the podcasts to be enlightening, thought-provoking, and thoroughly enjoyable.
