Re-release: Women, Money + Mindset
We all face self-sabotaging thoughts on occasion and it is important for us, as women, to collectively confront these issues so that we can move passed them as a community. Today we get into self-imposed limitations, balancing vision and action, the ever-present victim mentality, and setting realistic goals.
Re-release: Kelly Diels on Women, Money + Power

Re-release: Emily Williams on Mastering Your Money Mindset
Emily is a success coach and the author of the new book: I Heart My Life. Emily teaches women to examine their mindset around money and to do away with the limits we so often put on ourselves. She reveals how our false backstories are holding us back, and she shows us that, as ambitious women, we need to have more conversations about what we desire—including stories and examples that represent successes we can emulate. Emily is such a great example of this kind of success and her fearless attitude is something we can all learn from. Emily shows us that we have such amazing power to transform and mold our very existence through our thoughts, including the amount of money we have access to.
Re-release: Our Money Stories
In this episode, we’re getting vulnerable and sharing our money stories with you. This is not always an easy topic to discuss publicly, yet we need to start having these conversations in order to remove some of our collective shame about money—shame that is not helping any of us, particularly women. Going back to our memories of childhood, we share some of the difficult circumstances that shaped our understanding of—and relationship to—money. We hope that our experiences will give you the courage to confront your own stories about money. Don’t miss out on this heartfelt conversation!
Re-release: The Value of a Wife
On this re-released episode of the Soulful MBA podcast, we talk about a slightly controversial topic—the value of a wife. We touch on several articles we’ve read recently about the economic benefits for men who have a wife at home (or at least in a position where she is still primarily responsible for childcare and the emotional labor that takes place in families). As feminists and entrepreneurs, we felt that it was important to invite this conversation into our community because there is still so much we need to shift in our culture around gender and the workplace. Do you also wish for a wife—someone to take care of all the details and homework so that you can focus on your career and on building your business? The first article we’re discussing is “70% of Top Male Earners in the US Have a Spouse Who Stays Home”. Another article we’d like to talk about is titled “What ‘Good’ Dads Get Away With”, which is the other side of the coin. You might have a husband who does a lot more than most husbands and fathers, yet you still find yourself being the primary caretaker and filling in all the gaps in your family’s day-to-day life. Either way, women are often financially marginalized by gender roles and these seem to be exacerbated when we become mothers. This conversation affects almost all of us and it has to be acknowledged that it is still largely an unequal playing field. Something’s got to give!

Love this show, great content, hosts and guests. Just listened to the interview with Claire Wasserman and found myself saying “Amen!”. It was so insightful. I look forward to listening to more episode and have put this on my list of shows to listen to on a weekly basis. I can’t wait to listen to more of “and She Said”.
Pastel Pink Underbelly
OMG omg omg. I came across your podcast on a random search (don’t even remember what for) and picked one to listen to that just sounded interesting and.. omg. It is so rare for me to come across anyone who says things so similar to the ideas and opinions swirling in my head since literally forever and evolving over the decades. I live in a deep red area of a reddish state, somewhere I swore I’d never live (with mom) unless I had to, and it’s only confirmed everything I ever thought about avoiding conservative ‘murka. I’m tired of being told I’m “wrong” or to grow up or that “life isn’t fair, get over it” by people who are so ingrained and indoctrinated and enmeshed in capitalism that they can’t see beyond what they’re told to believe - and feeling like I’m alone. What I always find interesting (and LOVED about this episode) is when people put names to things I *KNOW* are real, but am constantly told are not. Like how so many female. business course entrepreneurs look and act exactly the same, like “downloading oppression”, like the issues between business and capitalism “extracting from other people” “no concern from outcome” “robber baron” (that one I use all the time, just to get blank stares from people around me). The whole thing disgusts me and is so contrary to what I know is right and better, yet the constant input I get is that I’ll never be “successful” unless I x, y, z. Thank you! Will try to listen to some more episodes, but for this one...wow. Sharing everywhere.
