    Financially Naked with Katie & Robert

    Financially Naked with Katie & Robert

    This month begins a three-month-long effort for me and The Financial Gym team to connect again in person with our community. In partnership with Community Spirit Vodka, we’ll be touring 9 cities and bringing our community together for the first time in almost three years. It’s an exciting time for us and I wanted to spend this month on the podcast talking about community and the importance of it. I think it’s easy to think about community as being a large number of people, but communities come in all shapes and sizes and I often think about our Financial Trainers at the Gym and in our CFT program as building community with their clients to effect change. 
    Joining me today are two Financial Gym clients, Robert and Katie, that I’ve been blessed to be in a community with for over 7 years now. They join me today to share their financial journey and the power that having me and the entire FinGym community has had on their financial picture.

    REPLAY: Gratitude With The Happy Hour Ladies

    REPLAY: Gratitude With The Happy Hour Ladies

    Hello Martinis and Your Money Listeners! As many of you know, I work with a team to produce one new episode a week despite running a business; and around the summertime, I always feel the need to take a little break from the podcast to refuel my creative juices where the show is concerned. So, I take the month of August off from airing new shows, and during this time, I replay some of my favorite episodes from this past year. I hope you enjoy hearing again or for the first time some of my favorite episodes of this past year. I’ll be back in September with new shows and hopefully some exciting news about Financial Gym. Until then, I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer and I’ll see you in September!
    Hello Martinis and Your Money Listeners! This was the last Friday of November 2022 and my regular listeners know that on the last Friday of the month, I host the happy hour on the podcast where I gather great friends with me to drink cheap drinks and talk about money topics. For this month on the podcast, we’ve been talking about something we call Gym Magic at Financial Gym. Gym Magic happens when a client experiences a positive financial health result after joining the Gym and focusing on their finances. Helping clients find Gym Magic is probably one of the biggest reasons why I’ve committed everything I own to building Financial Gym. I love hearing success stories, especially with all of the crazy stories going on in the world right now, I thought we could all use a month of hearing about Magic and it continues to Happy Hour. The ladies share some of their stories of finding financial success and the surprising ways in which they found it.

    REPLAY: Goal Setting With Victoria Sechrist

    REPLAY: Goal Setting With Victoria Sechrist

    Hello Martinis and Your Money Listeners! As many of you know, I work with a team to produce one new episode a week despite running a business; and around the summertime, I always feel the need to take a little break from the podcast to refuel my creative juices where the show is concerned. So, I take the month of August off from airing new shows, and during this time, I replay some of my favorite episodes from this past year. I hope you enjoy hearing again or for the first time some of my favorite episodes of this past year. I’ll be back in September with new shows and hopefully some exciting news about Financial Gym. Until then, I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer and I’ll see you in September!
    This was the first episode of a new year and I wanted to focus this episode on one of my favorite things to start a new year with, goal setting. For most of my childhood and adult life, I hated New Year’s resolutions and the idea of goal setting because I am such a type A overachiever that I was always afraid of setting myself up for failure. It wasn’t until 10 years ago, when I became a financial planner and saw the game-changing power of goal setting for others, that I adopted it in my own life and my team at The Financial Gym works on this with their clients every single day.

    Joining me today to talk about some secrets to goal setting and why it may not have worked for you in the past is one of my trainers from The Gym, Victoria. Victoria is actually a long-time podcast listener, but this is her first time as a guest!

Faithful listener to W2C ,

Look forward to the show

I love the show and look forward to it every Friday. My faves are the happy hour shows and the breadth of perspectives each person brings and the depth of topics. It feels like I am joining in for a fun happy hour with my girlfriends to chat about one of my fave topics—money and how to save it, money and how to spend it and money and how to increase it! Also, I am secretly stalking the Financial Gym to become a BFF some day. I love what y’all do!

Used to be great, until it got political

In case you haven’t noticed, politics has infiltrated every corner of our society. So much so, you can’t do much these days without hearing it. I, for one, am tired of it. I’ve been listening to MAYM since 2016, and I used to love the show. Now, a LOT has changed since then, but one thing that I thought hadn’t was this show, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Apparently that has changed in the last year or so. I’ll admit, I haven’t listened as regularly as I used to for various reasons. But when I went to listen to some of the shows in the backlog, I was appalled. It has become overly political. I have unsubscribed, and I hope that one day it can return to its origins, and then it may regain a listener out of me. It’s sad because the format was so unique, with the drinking and talking about money. I just can’t handle the politics!

Fantastic

I love this podcast, been listening for YEARS and finally sharing a review. I love Shannon’s integrity and honesty and also her incredible knowledge and helpful advice. What she has built, both with the gym and the pod, is truly a gift to the world. If you are a woman (or a man but definitely if you’re a woman) and interested in money, this show is for you.
