Budgeting

Take Back Your Bank Account + Take Back The Life You Want to Live

I’ve gone through most of my life letting my bank account balance dictate my mood.  I’ve stuffed ATM receipts in my wallet without looking at them, sat through amazing dinners fixated on how much money I don’t have at the moment, and stopped myself from truly living life….just because of that number.

On this episode, I’m sharing how I decided one day to take back my bank account and started a movement of others doing the same.

What You’ll Learn

  • How my fear around money kept me stuck from achieving my goals
  • What are the things you can control with your finances
  • Proactive steps to let go of the things you can’t control
  • The biggest truth you need to learn about your family and money
  • Why you need to throw out what you know and focus on taking small steps

Money is still a major taboo subject in a relationship—whether you’re on your first date or have been with your partner for multiple years.

Nicole Middendorf, a Wealth Advisor and Certified Divorce Financial Analyst with Prosperwell Financial, is here to thankfully help us take a deeper dive into how we navigate love and money. This fall her fifth book “Who Pays? Navigating Love and Money” will hit bookshelves. Nicole’s life goal is to reduce the divorce rate by helping couples – and especially women – feel less intimidated when talking about money. Yes, Please!

What You’ll Learn

  • What makes money so tough for couples to deal with
  • What you should and shouldn’t share about money in every phase of your relationship
  • How to figure out who should pay and whether it matters
  • How to deal with money in blended families
  • Why we’d rather get divorced then deal with money in our relationships
  • The #1 subject Nicole says every couple must talk about when it comes to money

The Quest for Financial Independence with Bola Sokumbi

There always has to be a why when searching for financial independence. Why do you want to want to save money, why do you want to buy a house, why do you want to change your career, why do you want to retire early?

Whatever the why is for you, it’s important that you know why because your why determines everything – how much you need to save, where you should live, what things matter to you, and your why also keeps you from competing with others.

Our guest on this episode, Bola Sokumbi, is a finance expert, author, podcaster, and founder of Clever Girl Finance discovered her why way back in college when she saved 100K in three years – that is no small feat. She did all sorts of things to save the money, stuff that you and I might think is crazy… but it worked. And now she wants to show you how you can find your why, create massive change in your life, and have some fun doing it.

What You’ll Learn

  • The steps Bola took to save 100K in three years
  • The money lessons Bola learned from her mom that helped her in her financial journey
  • Why Bola decided to write a book and the chapters she thinks you need to read ASAP
  • What’s one piece of money advice Bola wished every woman knew
  • How to achieve big money goals when they feel so far away
