When She Makes More - What it's like to be the female breadwinner with Farnoosh Torabi
Women have made great strides in the workforce over the years, but we still have a long way to go. According to a recent report from the Institute for Women's Policy Research, women are now the primary or sole breadwinners in 40% of households with children. This is a big shift from just a decade ago, when only 24% of households had female breadwinners.
So what's it like to be the woman carrying the financial load for your family? I decided to ask Farnoosh Torabi, New York Times Best-selling author of the book "When She Makes More" to talk about this topic.
As the female breadwinner in my family for the past 8 years, I can relate so much to this topic!

We'll also discuss some ways to get help if you or someone you know is struggling with this illness.
In this episode, I brought on Erin Reiland, who is recovering from Anorexia and is also a certified eating disorder and mental health coach. She blogs over at inbodylovecoaching.com.
Eating disorders themselves are a hard topic to talk about, but she shares the intimate details of how someone with an eating disorder gets in trouble with money. This episode was an eye-opener for me and I know you will really enjoy it!
