As we enter into February, if you made any New Year’s resolutions, now is the time to take a fresh look at your list and make sure you can go into the next 11 months with confidence… And that confidence is what we’re going to talk about today, on a broader scale. Specifically, we’re going to talk about what it means to be financially confident. And with that confidence also comes responsibility. We want to be good stewards of our money, and ensure we have the ability to give back to those less fortunate. We want to become more financially conscious along the way, too.
So, in this week’s episode, we’re asking: How can we be the kind of saver, investor, philanthropist, and budgeter that we’ve always wanted to be? Ashley Feinstein Gerstley has the answers — she is the author of the new book, Financial Adulting, which is a guide that breaks down everything you need to know to become your financial best self, and it covers everything from budgeting and consumer activism to investing and taxes. Ashley is also a money coach, author of The 30-Day Money Cleanse, and the Founder of the Fiscal Femme, a money platform on a mission to end inequality through financial well-being.
Listen in as Ashley and Jean discuss what makes a “financial adult” and why so many of us are revisiting our goals post-COVID. We get real about what it will take for more women to be empowered with their money, investing more, and bridging the gender wage gap more quickly than perhaps we might have expected.
In Mailbag, we discuss ESPPs and how to set up a trust to ensure that your children get all your money, not your husband’s new spouse. And in Thrive, the couple’s guide to setting 2022 financial goals.
