Navigating Love and Money with Nicole Middendorf

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. Money can be confusing and even, let’s just say, uncomfortable to discuss – wouldn’t it just be better if we all had this chip in us that allowed the other person to inherently know our money story without having to say a word.

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

How Did You Learn About Money? Talking Generational Differences Around Money & More With Lucas and Dr. Wayne Pernell

Most of us didn’t grow up with parent’s who taught us about money. Do you even remember how you learned about money? There is radio silence from our parent’s and family members because there is so much shame, guilt, and negative feelings inherent in all of us around money.

I had the pleasure of chatting with Dr. Wayne Pernell, aka Dr. P, on a much-loved previous episode. I was excited to sit down again with Dr. P and his son, Lucas who is in his 20’s, to talk about the generational differences around money and how we can work to break them apart.

What You’ll Learn

  • Why do generational difference exist when it comes to money
  • Is it too late to have money talks with our parent’s, and what should we talk about
  • The biggest money lessons Lucas and Dr. P learned and why each is important
  • How to recognize if you are stuck in a money pattern from your past
  • How your mind might be tripping up how you think, act, and feel about your money

Align Your Investment Dollars To Support The LGBTQia+ Community With Jay Lipman

June is pride month, although I’d argue that every month should be about loving others no matter what they look like, what their sexual orientation is, or what their life story is. In my opinion, as long as you aren’t hurting anyone else, you have every right to be you, just like I have every right to be me. That may be my view, but I was curious, with the rise of an inclusive culture and social responsibility, how are companies and investors supporting the LGBTQia+ community.

My guest and fellow millennial is Jay Lipman, co-founder, and president of the Fintech asset management sustainable investing firm Ethic. On this episode, we’re covering a lot of topics including social responsibility investing and what companies are doing to support the LGBTQia+ community.

What You’ll Learn

  • Are we seeing a strong shift in companies towards better equality with LGBTQ workers or are we still just talking about it without any definitive action
  • How and why are companies aligning their investment portfolios to support the LGBTQia+ community
  • If you’re an investor and want to support the LGBTQ community, are there certain things you can be doing
  • What lead Jay to a career in social entrepreneurship
  • What are trends that are emerging in the social/sustainable investing space
  • What can we do as millennials with less cash to build a sustainable investing practice
