Curious & Curiouser Podcast, Episode 68: Money, Shame, & Why Financial Literacy is Essential For Women

JUICY TOPIC ALERT! Today, Tracey and I are talking all about money. It’ s an important topic that we believe often gets overlooked in the health and wellness industry. So get ready for an open, honest, transparent dialogue about a subject that makes most of us uncomfortable.

Tracey and I talk about money in partnerships and what it means to either combine or not combine finances.

We talk about navigating friendships when your income is either significantly higher or lower than the people with whom you are spending your time, particularly when it comes to planning big events likes weddings and other potentially expensive trips.

We also talk about how the attitude your parents had toward money when you were a kid often unconsciously affect your beliefs about money in your own life as an adult.

Tracey and I also discuss the shame we often feel when it comes to our financial situations, why talking about money shouldn’t be taboo, and why women especially need to educate themselves about finances.

This conversation is GOOD. Tracey and I sincerely hope you enjoy it. If you do, please consider leaving the show a 5-star rating or review in iTunes. This is SO appreciated, as it helps Tracey and me reach a wider audience with our message.
