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.
Get What You Want
What do you want most for your life and your career, in terms of goals you’ve set for yourself? What about those big goals that seem almost too big — the impossible ones that you only sometimes let yourself dare to dream? Julie Solomon, author of, Get What You Want: How to Go From Unseen to Unstoppable, tells us how to discover what’s holding us back, release limiting belief systems, and approach life from a place of increased confidence and clarity. In Mailbag, how much to save for retirement, and in Thrive, how to stop living paycheck-to-paycheck.
Crypto Questions, Answered
We heard from so many of you after our Crypto 101 episode. You had questions. This show is filling in the gaps during a time of volatility in the sector. Is it something we should be investing in? Is there a way to know if you’re buying the next Bitcoin at a low, and you stand to earn millions, or if you’ve just put your money into the next Luna? Shirin Bucknam, co-founder of Crypto Witch Club, joins us to tackle your questions. In Mailbag, we dive into how single people can get an executor for their estate, and questions on SEP IRAs. And in Thrive, what to do in times of market volatility.
Fair Pay + Earning More
We’re discussing how to get paid fairly, what to bring to the negotiation table, and what it really takes to earn more. We’re giving you scripts for how to ask for a raise, and how to respond if your request is denied. In Mailbag, we hear from a listener celebrating a big career win, and Jean advises a woman who just started a new job but it’s clearly a terrible fit and a toxic environment.
Want to learn more? Sign up for our Let’s Talk Fair Pay Workshop on Tuesday, June 21st, from 1:00-2:00PM EST. You’ll have the opportunity to ask your questions and even role play with Jean and a Payscale negotiation expert!
Divorce And Your Money
Women’s household income drops by an average of 41% following a divorce. If you’re going through a separation, today we’re giving you a guide for what may lie ahead — and we’re getting tactical about some of the moves you should be taking to set yourself up for success. We talk about what it really takes to be financially strategic, preventative and knowledgeable. In Mailbag, we advise a listener on buying and selling a home in the era of climate change, and we talk through the advantages and disadvantages of getting married where college aid is considered. And in Thrive, how to talk to your manager about getting a raise.
The Four-Day Workweek
We can’t talk about getting women “back to work” without talking about what, exactly, that work needs to look like. Because “work” as we’ve known it for the last 100 years, just wasn’t built for women. Lately, we’ve heard of companies with 4-day workweeks and more flexibility than we could have imagined just a few years ago. But are these changes here to stay, and can you ask for them yourself? Shannan Monson, founder and CEO of NuuWork, weighs in. In Mailbag, we hear from a “millennial in transition” who breaks down her complete financial picture for Jean, and we dive into it all. And in Thrive, a rent vs. buy checklist.
Moving Past Rejection
What do you do when you’re told “no,” when what you really want is a yes? How can we pick ourselves up and move on, and turn our attention to new opportunities, or new people that want us? In this episode, we discuss how to handle rejection, with Jordan Lee Dooley, author of Embrace Your Almost. In Mailbag, we talk about making the most of social security, and helping an elderly parent with their budget. In Thrive, should you pay your parents when they babysit?
This podcast is a must listen for women looking to improve their financial literacy and take steps toward financial freedom! Jean is very knowledgeable and each episode is truly insightful and informative.
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!
Thank you Jean!!
I honestly don’t know how I would manage my finances without Jean. Thanks for creating a space for women to learn about their finances and get our lives together. You really make it so much easier to know what to do… we really don’t learn enough in school!
