    Mental Health Check In & Summer Reads with The Happy Hour Ladies

    Mental Health Check In & Summer Reads with The Happy Hour Ladies

    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. This month on the podcast, I’ve highlighted financial and self-books from various authors that I know and respect. The happy hour ladies joined me and shared some amazing books to add to your reading list as well, but before we got into that, we addressed another important celebration that happens in May and that’s Mental Health Awareness. I asked the ladies to grade their current mental health state and we discussed what we’re feeling at the moment and how we’re working to improve or maintain our current mental health state. As always, it was a very honest and special conversation, and I hope you enjoy it.

    Stacked, Your Super Serious Guide to Money Management with Joe Saul-Sehy & Emily Guy Birken

    Last month was Financial Literacy Month and believe it or not, we’re fast approaching summertime, so I have books and learning on the brain this month. I decided to dedicate the month of May to various personal finance or self-help books that I thought would make great books to add to your current or summer reading lists. Today I’m talking to the co-authors of Stacked – Your Super Serious Guide to Modern Money Management, Joe Saul-Sehy and Emily Guy Birken. As you can imagine, over the years, I have read numerous personal finance books and I have to say, this one has quickly climbed the ranks to become one of my favorites. Joe and Emily not only have a wealth of knowledge to share through this book, but they share it in a funny and educational way that only they could pull off. I can’t wait for you to hear more from them on this book writing experience.

    Fire the Haters with Jillian Johnsrud

    Last month was financial literacy month and believe it or not, we’re fast approaching summertime, so I have books and learning on the brain this month. I decided to dedicate the month of May to various personal finance or self-help books that I thought would make great books to add to your current or summer reading lists. 
    Kicking off the month is my friend, Jillian Johnsrud, host of the Everyday Courage podcast and author of the book, “Fire the Haters: Finding the Courage to Create Online in a Critical World,” a book that helps creatives and entrepreneurs share their best work with the world. She joins me to talk about why she wrote the book and how we can apply the lessons in the book to our online interactions.

    Cryptocurrency with the Happy Hour Ladies

    Cryptocurrency with the Happy Hour Ladies

    Hello Martinis and Your Money Listeners! Today is the last Friday of the month 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. Today is the last Friday of April and April is Financial Literacy Month or what we like to call our favorite time of year at The Financial Gym. An entire month that’s focused on the importance of financial literacy. I always say that financial literacy is just as important as regular literacy and while there are so many resources for us out there to get better at it, I still feel as though we have a financial literacy crisis in the US. Every day new clients come to the Financial Gym feeling shame that they aren’t as adept in their personal finance knowledge and my response is always the same. Why should you feel confident? Most of us didn’t learn about personal finance at home, at school or on the job, yet the second we start receiving paychecks, we’re responsible for managing our money and navigating the world of personal finance. 
    This month on the podcast, I’m addressing a particular area of finance that our clients find the most challenging. Today on the Happy Hour the ladies join me to talk about Cryptocurrency and whether or not it’s something you should focus on in your investment portfolio. As you can imagine, there’s a lot of opinions here.

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!

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!
