Get Yourself Healthy Now with Julie Voris

I think January is so interesting. It’s the month that as my guest Julie Voris, an online fitness and nutrition coach says, we want to do all the things and the reason we don’t, it’s because we don’t commit to the choice. We give up somewhere between Jan 1 and Jan 31.

But getting yourself healthy isn’t just about losing weight, but it’s about forming good habits, getting your blood flowing so you can think better, have more energy, and spur on some good juju so you can tackle your goals. Thankfully, Julie is here to show you how you can get yourself healthy on any budget.

What You’ll Learn

  • Why being healthy is about so much more than how much you weigh
  • How to incorporate exercise and good nutrition on any budget
  • The mental benefits of working out
  • How Julie cultivated a career around exercise and nutrition
  • What are some easy ways to workout at home
  • Ways to figure out what eating plan is right for your body
  • How to change your mindset around exercise and nutrition

Skip the New Year’s Resolutions & Set Goals Instead

New Year’s resolutions don’t work, it’s a proven fact. So why would you waste time or energy making resolutions? I’ve got a better plan I’m going to share with you in today’s episode.

According to U.S. News, 80% of New Year’s resolutions fail by February.  And, in a poll that was taken in 2017, 53% of people said their resolution was to save money and 45% was to lose weight and get in shape while 25% of people said they just wanted to have more sex. Ok, well those aren’t bad resolutions, right. But they don’t stick.

So what can you do – you’ve got to have a different plan for success – and it’s not about resolutions it’s about action.

Real Talk About Investing For Women (with Amanda Holden)

I’m normally not a big fan of separating women from men when it comes to money, however, I am a strong supporter of creating a new language around investing for women. Why, because, as our guest, Amanda Holden, aka the Dumpster Doggy says, “there’s a lot of femme shaming when it comes to money, how we’re spending and investing it and well, we just don’t process information the same way, but that’s a good thing.”

So let’s drop the bs and get some solid investing advice from someone who is committed to changing the way women invest.

Investing for women

What You’ll Learn

  • Why Amanda is passionate about teaching women what they need to know without the bs
  • The story behind Amanda’s successful blog, The Dumpster Dog Blog
  • Money blindspots women have and how to avoid those
  • How to win at investing even if you are a newbie
  • Why learning about investing is critical

I know him as Dad and the person who taught me almost everything I know about personal finance.

My Dad, Stan, is joining us for a lively discussion about the advice he has about how to be smart with your money in your twenties and thirties. We’ll also talk about the difference between perceptions of money when he was in his twenties versus now – which is always a fun topic for me.

Dad’s top advice:

  • Save for emergencies (and save more than you think)
  • Invest in your 401(k) and don’t touch the money
