No offense to any of our other guests, but Sheila Nevins might be our favorite. The longtime executive producer and President of HBO Documentary Films has spent years telling other people’s stories. But in this episode she opens up about her own. We have a no-holds-barred conversation on what it was like to be a career-driven woman in the 1970s, the #MeToo movement, her relationship with money (she wants to blow a bundle at Missoni, but something’s holding her back), her feelings about aging and that aforementioned facelift. And if you want more of Sheila (like we do — in fact, we cut Thrive for a longer convo with her), you can check out her best selling humor book, “You Don’t Look Your Age … and Other Fairy Tales.” We didn’t cut your questions though! We close with Mailbag: How much do you need to save before you start investing? And how can couples who have different tolerances for debt compromise? Kelly and I discuss both and more. Join us!
