Finances in Midlife

Finances in Midlife

2021-02-0754:14

Money is such an important part of our society and lives that you can’t really avoid it. Sooner or later you’ll need to address it with your partner, roommate, sibling etc. In this episode I’m joined by Jenn Uhen as we discuss how to approach discussions about finances, what to do about investments in our 30s and 40s and even about retirement plans. Jenn Uhen heard from many women that they will start investing “someday,” or that growing up they were taught to save their money. They weren’t taught the benefit of “investing in themselves” or investing on their own. Jenn built The Pledgettes to democratize access to financial experts, build a supportive space for women to evolve their relationship with money, and create connections so no woman is going after her personal financial goals alone.
