Anyone who tells you women don’t need financial advice specifically for them is wrong. Women, whether they’re the caretakers, the breadwinners, or both, face a unique set of financial challenges. That’s where HerMoney comes in. In her frank, often funny, but always compassionate way, Jean Chatzky takes every audience of women through the steps they need to take today to live comfortably (and worry-free) tomorrow, offering the latest research, expert tips and personal advice.
The Gender Pay Gap, Revisited
Women have been fighting for equal pay for more than a century, but the gender wage gap is far from old news. It’s still around, and there’s still more to learn about it. What do we need to know to close the gap, once and for all? We talk about the latest research with Lauren Weber, a Wall Street Journal reporter and co-author of a new study about the gender pay gap. In Mailbag, we answer questions about retirement savings benchmarks, and how much you should pay for a financial advisor. In Thrive, how to reduce costs as a wedding guest.
Inside the Mind of a Good Manager
The Great Resignation won’t be over any time soon. Workers are still leaving their jobs for better opportunities, and companies have to step up to retain talent. There’s no better moment than now to look at managers. What role do they play in workplace culture, and how can they make their companies better? We’re diving into those questions with Jim Edwards, author of “Say Thank You for Everything: The Secrets of Being a Great Manager.” In Mailbag, we talk about the practicalities of filing for divorce, and how to restructure your investment portfolio for retirement. And in Thrive, how much it really costs to own a pet.
How to Negotiate Fearlessly
Women face systemic challenges when it comes to negotiations in the workplace, but we also often don’t realize our inner strengths. All of us have the power to be great negotiators, and we don’t have to pretend to be tough while doing it, either. Wharton negotiation professor Mori Taheripour joins us to discuss the misconceptions people have about negotiations, and shows us how we can succeed more by being collaborative and true to ourselves. In Mailbag, we answer questions about creating a nest egg for your child and reopening a divorce case from years ago. And in Thrive, how to make your money last in retirement.
Fine Wine on a Budget
When we’re shopping for wine, we all want to get the highest-quality bottle that won’t break the bank. But how do we know what to look for? Sommelier Victoria James is here to tell us all of her wine hacks, from which regions offer the greatest steals to how we should pair wine with food for the best experience. Sit back, relax with your own glass, and listen in!
Investing by Women, for Women
Investing can feel overwhelming, especially in today’s market — but HerMoney’s got you covered. Tune in to hear about InvestingFixx, an investing club for women led by Jean and Karen Finerman, CEO and co-founder of Metropolitan Capital Advisors. In this special preview episode, Jean and Karen break down how to invest for long-term gains, and what strategies we should use to pick individual stocks. In Mailbag, we answer questions about how to teach investing to your kids, and what to do if you have limited savings at retirement age. In Thrive, how to let go of productivity guilt.
Speak Up: How to Call Out Gender Bias in the Workplace
Sexism in the workplace isn’t always in-your-face. What do you do when discrimination is subtle, but still harmful to your career? We talk about gender-based microaggressions and how companies can create a better work culture with Katie Lacey and Lori Tauber Marcus, authors of “You Should Smile More: How to Dismantle Gender Bias in the Workplace.” In Mailbag, we help a father give financial advice to his daughters, and we offer tips to another listener on negotiating benefits at a new job. In Thrive, how to protect yourself from inflation.
A must for women everywhere!
Thanks, Jean! Your podcasts are always fantastic and messaging so important for women. Enjoyed the latest with Paco de Leon. I would have given it 6 stars, but only let me give it 5. Keep it going!
Judgement free zone?
I loved this podcast for many years… it was great regarding insight and words of wisdom in terms in money. Where they lost me is there is always a ‘judgment free’ disclaimer, but I will say, that is only if you are in their lane politically speaking. Very disappointing because it was a great listen. Where they lost me was in the episode recently saying things would be better off if the nation looked more like California than Texas …. Judgment free??? 👋🏻
I don’t know what happened Jean, your show used to be so good. I haven’t seen a topic that interested me in months. 😥
