HerMoney Podcast: Invest Like A Woman (Episode 154)

Kelly Hultgren  |  March 27, 2019

Building off of last week’s “Women With Money” episode that focused on how and why more of us should be investing in addition to our retirement accounts, we’re with investing expert Manisha Thakor.

She’s VP of financial wellbeing at Brighton Jones and host of the “true WELLth podcast.” We discuss the psychology of investing, the difference between active versus passive investing styles and best practices for working with financial advisors. In Mailbag, we answer your questions on closing credit cards without hurting your credit, whether it’s a smart move to help a boyfriend’s family with student loan debt and the complications that can ensue come tax time. Plus: Our Thrive segment is courtesy of one of our amazing listeners, Pam, who emailed us a few weeks back after Episode 149, in which we talked about the new rules of resume writing. Her advice will help your resume get seen!
