Great Perspective

As a female veteran I really appreciate your latest episode. I unfortunately resonated with her experiences in the military and the struggle for women in the service all around. While I did not come from a military family or background, I faced similar challenges during my time in service and the ongoing efforts that need to be made for women in the military safety and security both physically and financially. Great episode. Thanks again!

The only financial podcast I can actually listen to

I really appreciate this approach to financial discussions as someone who never felt “good” at money nor had an easy time learning about finance 101 this has really felt like a podcast for me. I’ve learned so much without feeling talked down to or at.
Also so excited for Chelsea’s book so impressed at the whole endeavor and the transparency in the recent ep was so refreshing! I would love for another episode from the perspective of someone going through a publisher or even from a publisher

Victim Mentality

I used to really like this podcast but lately feel like it really promotes a lack of accountability and a constant victim mindset. Also, Chelsea often puts words in her guests mouths - if you're going to have guests on, I’d like to hear their honest thoughts, not the host’s.
