The Women Who Money team is always on the lookout for interesting and informative podcasts to share with our readers. Today’s review is by Vicki, co-founder of Women Who Money, Women’s Money Talk, and founder of Make Smarter Decisions.
The Financial Grownup Podcast
When it comes to learning money lessons from someone with years of industry experience, Bobbi Rebell is your teacher.
Her podcast features a variety of celebrities, authors, leaders, and amazing guests who have inspiring and important money stories to share. Bobbi also does podcasts alone where she reviews books or shares Financial Grownup money lessons on specific topics.
Bobbi’s podcasts are brief with the majority being 10-20 minutes in length. Her focus is one money story, one money lesson, and how to apply the lesson in your life.
What I love about them is you can listen to them when you’re making coffee in the morning, on your ride to work, or when you’re on a treadmill at the YMCA.
Who’s On the Financial Grownup Podcast
You can go to the Financial Grownup podcast website to see all of the people Bobbi has interviewed. She’s talked with Perez Hilton, Tanja Hester, Leslie H. Tayne, Stephan Paternot, Tina Sharkey, and more.
If you don’t recognize those names, check out the podcast and the everyday money lessons they share with Bobbi’s listeners!
Two podcasts I enjoyed and the money lesson takeaways:
Sharon Epperson, CNBC’s Senior Personal Finance Correspondent recently talked with Bobbi about money and medical emergencies. A survivor of a brain aneurysm, Sharon shares the difficulties she faced in the hospital when receiving paperwork and being asked to make decisions with a brain injury.
She discussed the importance of having an emergency plan, a power of attorney, and completing other important legal documents – along with discussing important life and health decisions with your family.
Sharon discussed the importance of adequate, quality health insurance and the need for disability insurance. Her one money lesson was about the importance of knowing where you stand financially and how to monitor your finances. I strongly urge you to give the 18-minute podcast a listen.
Leslie takes a different approach to debt. She helps people understand why taking on debt can help you move forward in life. But she also talks about the importance of managing the debt you are embracing.
In discussing ending her engagement, Leslie shared that you shouldn’t put yourself in the position where you have to micromanage someone else’s inability to manage their own money.
Her advice on being brave and strong about dishonesty in a relationship (including financial dishonesty) is vital for anyone in love to hear.
Her one money lesson is saying thank you to debt that helped you achieve something. She believes having this mindset will help you learn to manage that debt better.
