    Reagan Washington: Mother's Day Q&A

    Reagan Washington: Mother's Day Q&A

    Mother’s Day is right around the corner and this special episode is dedicated to every Mother!   
     
    As a parent, it’s normal for us to talk “at” or “to” our kids, but not necessarily talk “with” them. 
    Our children are extremely observant and not only do they learn from the lessons we teach them, but they also watch our actions and pull qualities that help them shape their response to situations. Having conversations with our kids is so important and many of them have so many questions regarding how to navigate in this world. 
     
    As a mother, it was hard for me to accept that my daughter is an individual being with various thoughts, opinions, emotions and experiences. At the age of 13, she’s experiencing things I never have, and this week, I finally got a chance to sit down with the “Mini Money Maven” herself, to answer some of the questions that she has about life. 
     
    To make things fun, we decided that instead of interviewing her, Reagan has the opportunity to ask me anything. From stories about my middle school days, to questions about motherhood and raising a teenager, listen in as my daughter, Reagan Washington, hosts this special episode with a Mother’s Day Q&A. 
     
    Reagan’s questions from this episode include:
    What Is Your Most Memorable Day In Middle School - 4:18
    What Did I Do As A Child That Frustrates You Or That You Love? - 8:06
    What Would You Name Me If I was a Boy? - 11:27
    What Is Your Favorite TV Show As A Kid? - 16:38
    What’s The Hardest Thing About Raising Children? - 18:48
    What’s The Funniest Thing I’ve Ever Said Or Did As A Kid? - 22:28
    Do I have More Of Your Good Qualities or Bad Qualities? - 23:40
    Which Of My School Friends (Or Their Parents) Did You Dislike The Least? - 31:02

    Rachel Rodgers: We Should All Be Millionaires

    Have you become accustomed to old mindsets, limiting beliefs and poor behaviors that no longer serve who you are today? Have you become content making “just enough” to get by?
    If you know that you are the person who has achieved a certain level of success, yet you find yourself making decisions from who you actually are today and what you’ve achieved, then We Should All Be Millionaires is the book for you. As we bring our Thoughtful Money Series to a close, I felt that this book is the perfect resource to help you shift into a millionaire mindset and work toward building generational wealth.

    Rachel is a woman of color, a mother of four and a seven-figure business owner – in that order. She is the Creator of the Hello Seven Podcast and is known for using her voice to share with the world that We Should All Be Millionaires.

    Tanya Van Court: Close the Gap

    To show our appreciation for Financial Awareness Month, we continue our “Thoughtful Money Series”. The purpose of this series is to become people who are more thoughtful around conversions that can increase financial literacy and education in our communities.
    If we’re going to be better with money, we have to start closing the gap. The statistics regarding money for minorities and women are mind blowing and unless we effect change in our own homes, we will contribute to another poverty stricken generation. We all need to be more thoughtful about who and what we’re investing in. By collectively starting the conversation, we can close the gap in financial education as well as the gap in this wealth generation; and an amazing resource that can help us get there is Goalsetter.
    Goalsetter is a family saving, financial literacy and smart spending app that makes it easy for the whole family to go cashless and learn how to be money-smart. Goalsetter is Nickelodeon meets Fintech – it combines the best of Fintech companies like Acorns and CashApp with financial education and gaming that appeals to the whole family. As such, Goalsetter is the first money app for the whole family, giving kids - from cradle to graduation - healthy financial habits that will last a lifetime.
    Today we sit down with Tanya Van Court, the Founder and CEO of Goalsetter. Prior to Van Court's role at Goalsetter, Van Court served as senior vice president of partner marketing at Discovery Education, where she launched digital textbooks to schools across the country, as well as Nickelodeon, where she led their digital preschool and parenting businesses, including NickJr.com and Noggin.com. Prior to Nickelodeon, Van Court served as vice president of new media products for ESPN, where she led the launch of ESPN3, and she holds two degrees in engineering from Stanford University, and three degrees in parenting from her children Gabrielle, Hendrix, and Maxwell.

    Melody Wright: Being Broke On Purpose

    Melody Wright: Being Broke On Purpose

    As we continue our Thoughtful Money Series, today’s episode focuses on the dreadful “d-word” we all know and despise: Debt.
    Debt is that familiar friend that finds its way into our finances. Some of us blatantly hide our debt from family and friends, while others secretly stash shopping bags and bank statements to avoid money conversations entirely. Regardless, we all tend to not disclose the full truth surrounding our debt and fail to notice when lack of discipline turns on us in our finances.
    Our guest this week is here to help us move past the disorganization and confusion that is our current financial state and help us put the PERSONAL back into personal finances. She understands that a financial plan isn't one size fits all, and believes that we all have the ability to live our OWN version of a Rich Life.
    Melody Wright is a trained Ph.D. scientist that left the bench behind to become a Financial Empowerment Coach, Certified Financial Education Instructor, Speaker, and personal finance Author. While she's always had a passion for science, she has an even bigger passion for helping people create a better life through financial education and traded in her safety goggles and pipettes for debt repayment calculators and spreadsheets.
    When faced with $212K of debt that didn't include their mortgage, she used the analytical skills learned from her time in science to develop a framework that helped her family pay off over $100,000 in debt in less than three years. Now she's living her version of a Rich Life and through bold conversations, coaching, and the creation of strategic money management systems, she has helped thousands of people stop being Aimlessly Broke™ and transform their mindset, behaviors, and practices related to money. Melody has been featured on the Rachael Ray Show, named a new money expert by Glamour Magazine, and has appeared on Grow -CNBC and several podcasts.

    Takeo Spikes: I'm Not Going Back

    Takeo Spikes: I'm Not Going Back

    As we dive into our “Thoughtful Money” series, I wanted this series to contain unconventional conversations that challenge our money mindset and uncover the reasoning behind how we think of money. 
    While many athletes, entertainers and celebrities are known for having access to a lot of money, it’s interesting how so many have fallen victim to bankruptcy and financial struggles. I believe that who we are with a dollar, is who we are with a million dollars. Unless we have the discipline and education to manage our money wisely, it can be very easy to revert back to toxic spending habits that serve temporary pleasures instead of strategically building a lifestyle that attracts and maintains wealth. Today’s guest is an athlete who excelled both on the gridiron and in the game of money.
    Former NFL player, Takeo Spikes was drafted in the first round (13th pick overall) by the Cincinnati Bengals in 1998. After a successful 15 year career in football, he became a two-time All-Pro, a two-time Pro Bowl selection and is one of only seven linebackers in league history with more than 200 starts while playing for the Bengals, Buffalo Bills, Philadelphia Eagles, San Francisco 49ers and San Diego Chargers.
    In preparation for life after football, Spikes began his broadcasting career with national appearances on television and radio and in December 2016, published his first book, Behind the Mask, a collection of intimate short stories about and photographs of some of the greatest linebackers to ever play in the NFL. His podcast of the same name, Behind the Mask, tells the REAL stories of some of your favorite players on and off the field, including Mike Singletary, Derrick Brooks, and the late Chuck Bednarik. In this episode, he shares his thoughtful money mindset and his amazing journey from the NFL to becoming an influential philanthropist who educates athletes and young men on how they can play the game and grow in wisdom and in wealth.
    Key discussion points from this episode include:
    Evolving in Purpose After The NFL - 8:36
    Do What Comes Naturally To You - 13:24
    Having An Intentional Money Mindset - 14:33

    REWIND: Impossible Means It's Not Your Priority

    REWIND: Impossible Means It's Not Your Priority

    Have you ever told yourself that something was impossible? 
    Too often we deem a task impossible before we even start. We look at the amount of work it takes, all of the responsibilities we already have and the lack of time in a day, and we completely rule it out before we even give ourselves an opportunity to put the work in. 
    When we say it’s impossible, we’re saying that we’re not determined enough to remove every other distraction out of our lives so that we can focus on achieving the tasks we have in this season. Our words have power, and when we allow ourselves to believe that something is impossible, we stay stuck in cycles of confusion and we trick ourselves by the stories we tell that lead us to feel overwhelmed.
    In this season, I recognize that in order to increase my probability for success, I need to adjust my schedule and shift my priorities, which means removing the word “impossible” from my vocabulary. This episode is a REWIND and a reminder that when we declare the impossible, we’re really declaring that it’s not a priority.
    Key discussion points include:
    Make Sure It’s Meaningful - 09:46
    Start Your Schedule With The End In Mind - 13:50
    Invest In Your Priorities - 17:47
    This episode is brought to you by my new book, Redefine Wealth For Yourself: How To Stop Chasing Money and Finally Live Your Life’s Purpose.
