    Rewrite Your Money Story. Yanely Espinal

    Rewrite Your Money Story. Yanely Espinal

    Our relationship with money goes deeper than numbers on a spreadsheet? It all starts in our mind. My guest today is award-winning financial educator and author of the book "Mind Your Money," Yanely Espinal. She joins me to spotlight the emotional and psychological aspects that influence how we manage, spend, and even talk about money.
    Yanely shares openly about growing up below the poverty line, only realizing she was different when applying for financial aid programs in high school. She unpacks the guilt and scarcity mindset that held her back along with the shopping addiction tied to wanting to feel normal. 
    Now a leading voice in financial literacy advocacy, Yanely is on a mission to transform money mindsets through education. She offers tangible advice around childhood financial trauma, automating your savings to avoid temptations to spend, finding community support, and the importance of making money conversations mainstream.
    In this vulnerable conversation we explore the roots of financial trauma and how becoming aware of our own money stories is the first step toward real change.

    Sex Work, Money & Morality. Phoebe

    Can you relate to feeling undervalued or underpaid in past jobs or careers? How might that experience influence the career and money-making opportunities you pursue in the future?
    Sex work. The world's oldest profession, shrouded in controversy. Enter Phoebe, a spokesperson for the Prostitute Information Centre in Amsterdam, an activist working to empower sex workers and create change. 
    In this eye-opening interview, Phoebe pulls back the curtain on the adult entertainment industry - its financial realities, social stigma, and her advocacy for destigmatization.
    This conversation explores the complex relationship between sex work, money, and morality. Phoebe shares how she started doing online sex work in Thailand as a viable way to make money during COVID. She also explains how sex work changed her perspective on fair pay and value of work. We discuss the difficulties in getting loans and financial access in the Netherlands, despite legalization. And Phoebe offers tips like having multiple income streams and always having "get the f*** out" money.

Poor interview skills

I listen to many podcasts about finance. I thought I would give this one a try. It was very disappointing. He interviewed some very intelligent women and really only asked about their background and if they would prefer a manicure or to go shopping. So riveting. There are other much more very informative podcasts, in which the people conducting the interviews get into much deeper issues with actionable topics. This shows me there is either poor interview skills at play or a lack of respect for the knowledge that these women bring to the table. Either way, I won’t be continuing to listen.

Wally Green ,
