"The dominant culture is telling us a lot of things about what we’re supposed to do with our money and our resources. I like a broader definition of money as just, - what are our resources?"

"There’s so many ethical questions and, you know, we're seeing this being being discussed at the top of all sorts of social platforms now, right? And then, you know, The New York Times this past weekend did that, you know, did their annual study showing what you know CEO compensation is as compared to the lowest paid workers, and it's atrocious." Is it possible for the business world, which is often characterized as being greedy, to care deeply about and act with social responsibility? Today's guest believes yes. And in today's world, she says, where consumers are looking to support corporations who specifically champion diversity and inclusion and philanthropy, it’s more important than ever for businesses to consider actively being part of the solution and forces of good in the world.

When’s the last time you sat your parents down and talked to them about their money? If you’re like most people, it probably hasn’t happened yet. And, I don’t blame you. Talking to your parents about their savings, their will, their hopes for what happens when they get older or after they die is unpleasant. But, as today’s guest will share, it’s absolutely necessary. Today, I’m interviewing Cameron Huddleston. She is an award-winning journalist with more than 17 years of experience.Cameron’s experience taking over her mother’s finances after her mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease inspired her to write a book on how to to discuss finances with parents before it’s too late. It’s called Mom and Dad, We Need to Talk: How to Have Essential Conversations With Your Parents About Their Finances. Her articles have been published in Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, Business Insider, Chicago Tribune, Fortune, Huffington Post, Money, MSN, USA Today and more. She’s also the current Life + Money columnist for GOBankingRates. Follow Cameron on Twitter @CHLebedinsky and visit her website www.CameronHuddleston.com.

She finished college with six-figures in student loan debt, worked entry-level jobs to make ends meet, and had no idea how or where to save and invest money.

"My relationship with money is money comes and money goes. For me, it’s not the point of success. It’s important for me to be financially stable and it’s important for me to be making a lot of money, but it’s not what I consider personal success.”  Sophia Parsa is a tech co-founder, Forbes 30 under 30 honoree and a very accomplished entrepreneur. She co-founded the company Toot, which is an on-demand tutoring service after her tutor bailed on her the night before a big exam in college. The night before the test, she found a new tutor, thanks to the help of a professor, but then realized there's probably a better way to connect with tutors on-demand. The idea for Toot was born. Later, Sophia launched a dinner club called Mountain Gate, where entrepreneurs gather for dinner. Through Mountain Gate, entrepreneurs can get advice, they can form business partnerships and just connect with people who are like-minded. Today, Sophia is the director of community at FabFitFun, which is occasionally a sponsor of this show.FabFitFun is a subscription box that delivers a selection of full-size premium products to your front door.
