So smart!

This podcast talks about money in an approachable way. Loved the episode about systemic issues and money. These ladies really take a well-rounded approach to money. It’s not just the “save your pennies” mindset and I appreciate that.

Breath of fresh air

Love that it seems like the hosts acknowledge and try to cover a wide range of perspectives and diverse backgrounds in their interviews. It really does get old hearing other podcasts rehash basically the same interviews with the same demographic that I can't relate to. Looking forward to more seasons with Tanja and Kara to keep me motivated in my own financial journey.

I am a financial professional and I tell all my clients about this

This is exactly why I got into investment planning. The focus of my practice is bringing women into the conversation, this podcast is exactly what we need.
