    Make the Mundane Meaningful With Mike Norton

    Make the Mundane Meaningful With Mike Norton

    Think, for a second, about all of the things you do before you head to the gym or go out for a run. Do you wear special running shoes? How do you tie them? Do you give yourself a pep talk on days when you’re just not feeling it? Is there a certain playlist you always listen to? 
    Dr. Mike Norton, author of: “The Ritual Effect: From Habit to Ritual, Harness The Surprising Power of Everyday Actions,” says while working out at a certain time of day may be a habit, all of these little things we do to get ready are rituals, and paying more attention to them can transform our lives (financially or otherwise).

    Takeaways:

    The connection between rituals and financial habits.

    The difference between a ritual and a habit, with rituals adding emotion and meaning to actions.

    How to avoid taking ritualistic behavior too far.

    The Menopause Brain with Dr. Lisa Mosconi

    The Menopause Brain with Dr. Lisa Mosconi

    Money touches everything in our lives — including our health. And women know there’s one topic that has long been ignored in American society, to the detriment of millions of women: menopause. 
    It’s a big deal. By 2030, 1 billion women worldwide will have entered (or will be about to enter) menopause and on average, medical costs for menopausal women ages 45 to 54 are 47% higher than they are for women of the same age who don’t exhibit menopause symptoms. Dr. Lisa Mosconi discusses her new book: “The Menopause Brain,” and explains how the transition impacts our brains and our lives. 
    In Mailbag, HerMoney Editor-in-Chief Kathryn Tuggle is back to answer some down-to-the-wire tax time questions: A listener asks how she should prioritize paying the IRS vs. a credit card bill, and we hear from someone who’s having trouble getting a W2 for her daughter’s summer job. In our news of the week, why we still feel so bad about the economy and how stars mentioning a brand can move the needle on Wall Street. 

    Takeaways:

    Menopause is a neuroendocrine transition state that impacts the brain as much as it does the ovaries.

    Neurological symptoms during menopause, such as hot flashes and memory lapses, are a result of the brain's response to hormonal changes.

    Finding the right healthcare provider who is knowledgeable about menopause is crucial for receiving appropriate care.

    Workplaces should implement changes to support women going through menopause, such as flexible schedules and a culture of understanding and inclusiveness.

    Menopause can be a time of personal growth and new beginnings, and women should prioritize self-care and mental well-being during this stage of life.


    Chapters:
    00:00:00: Introduction and News of the Week
    00:06:24: What is Menopause, Really?
    00:08:25: Neurological Symptoms of Menopause
    00:13:50: The Reshaping and Rewiring of the Brain During Menopause
    00:18:36: Life Contentment and Menopause
    00:20:22: Financial Costs of Menopause

    Budgeting For Your Closet

    Budgeting For Your Closet

    How much of your money do you spend on the clothes in your closet? Now what about your time? In other words, how much time do you spend staring into the abyss of your wardrobe? One study says that over the course of her lifetime, a woman will spend a full year in front of her closet from age 16 to 60, just deciding what to wear. And this doesn’t include all of the other time we’re supposed to spend making our closets more manageable and our wardrobes more streamlined. 
    Kim France says it’s time to ditch ALL the rules, and start organizing our closets with more intention. She explains how we can prioritize the fashion rules that work for us, so we can stop staring into a full closet feeling like we have nothing to wear.

    Why MLMs Love To Target Women

    Why MLMs Love To Target Women

    Have you ever gotten a message on Facebook that looks something like this? “HEY GIRL, I HAVEN’T SEEN YOU IN A WHILE, YOU LOOK AMAAAAZING. DO YOU WANT TO LOOK EVEN BETTER AT YOUR NEXT EVENT? BUY MY MASCARA AND I’LL THROW IN A FREE GIFT. BUT HURRY, SALE ENDS AT MIDNIGHT.” Yeah…those messages. 
    While it may be easy to brush these off, roll our eyes, and hit delete, a surprising number of women in America are caught up in these businesses, known as multi-level marketing schemes, or MLMs. In today's episode, Jean talks to Jane Marie, author of Selling the Dream: The Billion Dollar Industry Bankrupting Americans about why MLMs target women specifically, the signs to look out for to know if you’re being targeted by one, and what to do next if you’ve already lost money.
    In Mailbag, a listener asks how to find the best low-cost brokerage account, and we do the math on whether ‘becoming a millionaire by retirement’ is feasible for everyone. In our news of the week, we talk about Donald Trump’s new stock, the end of swipe fees on Visa and Mastercard, and the passing of behavioral economist Daniel Kahneman.
    Takeaways:

    MLMs often target women, offering them the opportunity to work on their own schedule and make money from home. However, the vast majority of participants in MLMs make little to no money and end up losing money.

    The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is responsible for regulating MLMs, but their resources are limited, and MLMs often fly under their radar. It is important for individuals to report their negative experiences with MLMs to the FTC.

    MLMs continue to evolve and adapt, with new schemes constantly emerging. It is crucial for individuals to be vigilant and skeptical of any business opportunity that involves recruiting others and promises easy money.

    Chapters:
    00:00:00: Introduction to the podcast and the topic of MLMs 
    00:10:03: Introduction of guest Jane Marie 
    00:15:23: The nature of MLMs today
    00:18:49: The appeal of MLMs to individuals 
    00:21:17: The cycle of investment and loss in MLMs 
    00:23:59: The reality of income in MLMs 
    00:25:49: Why MLMs target women 
    00:30:51: The role of the FTC in regulating MLMs 
    00:32:51: Current trends and "flavors of the month" in MLMs 
    00:34:37: Jane Marie's hopes for the impact of her book "Selling the Dream"
    00:37:13: Mailbag

    Get What You Want With Charles Duhigg

    Get What You Want With Charles Duhigg

    Think about the conversations you have every day. There are the ones you have with your friends over coffee to catch up on life, the ones you have with a family member while walking the dog, and countless others throughout your week. While it may not seem like it, every conversation (yes, even the mundane ones!) is a negotiation, and once we have the skills to know which type of conversation we’re in, we can use every single conversation to better connect with those around us. 
    That’s what Charles Duhigg argues in his new book “Supercommunicators: How to Unlock the Secret Language of Connection.” He shares the difference between the three different types of conversation, and why knowing which one we’re engaged in can make all the difference. 
    In Mailbag, a listener asks about the red flags to look out for when choosing a high-interest savings account, and we hear from a retiree who’s wondering if they’re paying too much for private insurance. In our news of the week, we talk about what the Federal Reserve meeting last week means for your money. Additionally, we explore Unilever's decision to sell Ben & Jerry's, and how some families are handling the rising costs of storing frozen embryos.
    Takeaways:

    Every conversation is a negotiation, and understanding the different types of conversations can help improve communication.

    Asking questions and using techniques like looping for understanding can enhance connection and understanding in conversations.

    Acknowledging and embracing differences, including gender, can lead to more effective communication.

    Investing in relationships and conversations is crucial for long-term happiness and success.

Great information wide range of topics

I find it interesting that people are saying they're unfollowing the podcast because it's gotten "political." To me that speaks more to the trend of politicizing many things that don't need to be. There are issues that absolutely do uniquely impact women financially and we need spaces to talk about it. Our society is so sensitive and polarized these days that we would rather not hear overall valuable information on the slight chance we might hear something that isn't perfectly aligned with our belief system? It's mind boggling.

I do agree with others I'm not enjoying mail bag as much anymore. I also wish there was more content for the single ladies, single parents, those using the gig economy to offset costs etc. Just more that isn't focused on middle class (and up) business women working in corporate America. But all in all this is a very valuable resource and is in my must listen weekly rotation.
