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

The Secrets to Raising a Family and Paying Off Debt With Jessi Fearon

Jessi Fearon and her husband tackled two of life’s biggest challenges all at once – managing the cost of raising a family while simultaneously paying off debt of over $55 …they didn’t have superpowers or win the lottery, but we’re showing how they did it in this episode (and how you can as well).

As Jessi says, “Life takes on new meaning when you’re not strapped down by monthly payments. Living debt-free changes you in such beautiful and powerful ways.” Most of us have this love-hate relationship with debt – we love the stuff it buys us, but hate it when we’ve got to make those monthly payments. Debt-free is always the goal, but I’m going to be honest with you, working as a financial planner for over 15 years, debt comes and goals for most of us. So don’t beat yourself up if you’re in a debt phase…just keep putting one foot in front of another to chip away and let Jessi’s story inspire you to keep going.

 

What You’ll Learn

  • What does it mean to be debt-free
  • What paying off debt has taught Jessi about her relationship to money
  • How people get trapped in the debt cycle and what steps should you take to break it
  • How debt impacts your budget when you’re also raising a family
  • How to overcome roadblocks when you’re trying to pay off debt
  • How soon-to-be parents can prepare their bank accounts for a newborn
  • The one tip Jessi says you can’t live without when you’re trying to pay off debt

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
