Maggie’s mission and message are right up my alley!! I grew up in a household where money was private, and I really appreciate that Maggie is opening up the topic of money for women, as well as interviewing women who lift up each other. This show is on point: Maggie covers diverse topics (because money is related to everything!) and brings superb guests on to the show. Highly recommend!
MAGGIE KNOWS MONEY
Maggie has real advice and money support for the real world. What I love about Maggie’s podcast is that she acknowledges the systemic issues facing women and our ability to get our money right. There are some things we can do as individuals and there are other things that we need to do as a society to help us ALL get our money right.
SO MANY podcasts or publications about money and finance make you feel guilty or ashamed but Maggie makes me feel like financial stability and freedom is possible without extreme measures. I feel empowered versus overwhelmed and I’m so grateful to have found her podcast!
