Ep 86: Master Your Money Mindset With Kathleen Burns Kingsbury

11/29/2017
More
If anything’s a taboo on this show, it’s not talking about money. But for nearly half of Americans, they’d rather talk about politics, religion or death before discussing anything related to personal finance. That's why we brought in Kathleen Burns Kingsbury, wealth psychology expert and author of the new book Breaking Money Silence: How to Shatter Money Taboos, Talk More Openly about Finances, and Live a Richer Life.

Ep 84: Race, Resilience And Money With Stacey Tisdale

11/15/2017
More
Back in June, we took you with us to an event called "Winning Play$: Black Women, Feminism & Empowerment." It was hosted by the fabulous Stacey Tisdale, a fellow financial journalist, who has reported on business and finance for more than 15 years. We sat down with her and Gloria Steinem for a discussion on race, money and power. The thing is, we barely scratched the surface. And some of you wrote us — including Whitney, who you'll meet in Mailbag — and said: "More, please." We agreed. So...

Ep 82: Caring For Special Needs Kids With Judith Newman

11/1/2017
More
Raising a child isn't cheap. The DOA estimates it'll cost a quarter million to raise a child born in 2015 — and that's without college. But what if your child has special needs? One study estimates the lifetime costs of treating and caring for an individual with autism can rise to $2.4 million. That's the boat Judith Newman is in. She's the author of To Siri with Love: A Mother, Her Autistic Son, and the Kindness of Machines.

10/25/2017

In the last few years, Dr. Nancy Snyderman lost her father, left her job at NBC News, let go of her identity as a Journalist (capital J) and had to figure out who she was without all of them. She talks about going through what was essentially an existential crisis and how she learned the importance of knowing herself at her core as work identities come and go. We also discuss caretaking and how to handle a loved one's affairs.

10/18/2017

Biologists say conversations are essential to our survival, yet we're having less of them and getting worse at them. We talk about money every week in hopes of inspiring you to, and while this week is no exception, in this show, we're getting technical about the talking part. We sit down with conversation expert Celeste Headlee, author of the new book We Need to Talk: How to Have Conversations That Matter.

Being a mother is hard. Going at it alone? Even harder. There are 10 million single moms in the United States, and they’re on track to become the majority, with 57 percent of millennial mothers being unmarried. That's why we invited Emma Johnson, author of the upcoming book The Kickass Single Mom: Be Financially Independent, Discover Your Sexiest Self, and Raise Fabulous, Happy Children, to come on the show.

Pour yourself a cocktail (or a cup of coffee works, too) and put your hair in a messy bun, because this week’s show feels like a HerMoney happy hour. We're talking with "professional oversharers" Catherine Belknap and Natalie Telfer — aka Cat & Nat. They're known for saying what you're thinking, but do they talk about money? Yes and no.

Ep 77: Write Your Own Rules And Find Your Joy With Hoda Kotb

9/27/2017
More
Like a fine wine, Hoda Kotb keeps getting better with age. This week she takes us through the pain points of her 40s — cancer, divorce and thinking children might not be in her future — and how all of them made her fearless. She also tells us how now, in her 50s, she's in a job she pushed for, in a relationship that makes her happy and, best of all, a mother to her baby, Haley Joy, who she adopted earlier this year.

Ep 75: Failing Well With Rachel Simmons

9/13/2017
More
Think of the last time you really blew something. Was it a meeting, an interview, a test or a date? Did the setback stop you in your tracks — or did it give you the push you needed to move forward? Because, when it comes to long-term success (however you choose to define it), how you fail is more important than the failure itself.

Ep 74: Make Your Life Better With Gretchen Rubin

9/6/2017
More
As she was doing research for her last book, Gretchen Rubin started noticing that people respond to internal expectations (the ones you set for yourself) and external expectations (the ones others and society set for you) in four different ways. She also discovered that knowing which of the four you are — a Questioner, Obliger, Upholder or Rebel — is essential when it comes to breaking habits and making new ones. She's here to tell us about it and her new book, The Four Tendencies: The...
