Episode Description

I don't teach budgets. Not in the outdated over analytical sense anyway. Most women don't succeed financially by simply implementing a budget. We need systems to make financial decision making easy, and in order to thrive, we need honest communication, trustworthy friends (and information!), community, and a safe place to fall apart and put ourselves back together. Today's conversation is about why budgets (and relationships) fail, and how you can get on your path to fixing financial breakdowns of your own. Gail Swift is my best friend, she's been married for over 20 years, has two incredible teenage boys, and she and I have real talk about money all the time. In this episode, Gail will share her story about how she and her husband worked through financial secrets and a household budget that bled more than $50,000 before she even knew about it. Professionally, Gail is on a mission to help young people learn how to thrive using their unique brain wired strength. Who you are and how you're wired have everything to do with your ability to succeed with money, and in life! We are going to talk about that in this episode too. I hope you'll join us!

Real Money with Lisa Chastain

Monday at 10AM on VoiceAmerica Business Channel

Not enough women are talking about money. The truth is, so many women feel shame and guilt about the choices they are making financially, and it isn't their fault! Men earn 90% of the wealth in the world. Although women are the majority spenders at 85%, we are left to figure out for ourselves how to manage our money following male dominated advice. Every woman is capable of feeling confident about the choices she is making about her money. The problem is that for so many women, money isn't relatable. Experts are talking over your head, and this show is the perfect place for you to improve your confidence and relationship with money. My goal is for women to lead in all areas of their life with clarity that they are making the right choices for their families, their careers, and their futures. With Real Money, we are going to share real stories of women who are tackling their most difficult financial challenges.
