We’ve talked at length on this show about financially empowering women: how to speak up at work, get paid what you deserve, and take control of your finances. But what if we've been communicating it all wrong? What if, instead, we should be seeking Power not Empowerment? My guest Lindsay Goldwert is a freelance writer, podcaster and stand-up comedian who is tackling the topic of financial dominance in her new book, Bow Down...and doing so in an unconventional way. She traveled the country shadowing women who are part of the BDSM subculture (bondage, discipline, sadism, masochism) to learn the best ways to get what you want - and have your money serve you.  Learn more about Lindsay on her website: SpentPodcast.com and connect with her on Twitter @LindsayGoldwert and LinkedIn.
When we think of extraordinary investors, names like Warren Buffett, George Soros, and Ray Dalio might come to mind. But how about Jim Simons, founder of Renaissance Technologies? He's referred to as the greatest money maker in modern financial history, generating over $100 billion in profits....yet his life story has been a relative secret to many. In his new book, The Man Who Solved the Market, author Gregory Zuckerman looks into the world of Simons, who is now 81 years-old, and how his data-driven, algorithmic approach to investing has had unexpected, and far reaching implications on our world.  Zuckerman is a Senior Writer at The Wall Street Journal and a three-time winner of the Gerald Loeb award. Learn more about Zuckerman on his website GregoryZuckerman.com and connect with him on Twitter @GZuckerman.

Want to earn more money in 2020? Host Farnoosh Torabi provides answers to listeners top money questions...from top side hustles to maximizing retirement savings to finding a financial planner.
Iceland was the first country to have a female president, a democratically-elected female president who served for 16 years. Our guest today, Sigrun, remembers vividly what it felt like to grow up in Iceland and have that be her reality. And she says it is - no doubt- why she grew up to be the sort of woman who believes that anything is possible. As we kick off a new important year, 2020, Sigrun, a female advocate and business coach, stops by the show to lend us her vision so that we can get closer to achieving whatever we want this year. A little bit more about Sigrun:. For much of her career, she ran companies as the CEO. She even turned down the top role as CEO of Nisan, Sweden. She is now the CEO of her own company, a world renowned speaker, a podcast host, and she’s on a mission to help women and men turn their passion into profits.  Sigrun has a famous quote: “Put a date on your dreams. The rest is logistics.” I think I’m going to get that framed as my go to motivational poster for 2020.

What can a professional woman in her late 20's - who wants children one day - do to prepare best for the time and money constraints of parenthood?

It's impossible to pick the "best" interviews of 2019, but these are the episodes that really struck a chord - on many levels - with host Farnoosh Torabi. Highlights from conversations with Karen Rinaldi, Eve Rodsky, Paul Ollingers and Busy Philipps.
They say that youth is wasted on the young but the younger guests I had on my podcast this year defied many of the negative stereotypes about Millennials and young adults we hear. From a woman who saved $100,000 by age 25 to a young man who - despite many odds - would become one of the top real estate brokers in his generation, there was MUCH to learn from some of my guests who were just starting out in the real world.
Replay from June 7, 2019 This Friday, lots of questions about best ways to invest for retirement and steps for co-mingling finances with a partner. I recently got married and we've been together for 10 years. We have built our lives together, but still have separate bank accounts. We are now talking about combining some money to create a household account. He uses a credit union, I use a bank. Is there a benefit to either? Does it matter? Special co-host is Catie Hogan is a financial planner with the women-owned Element Financial Group. She’s also the author of the humorous and informative book The Millennial’s Guide to Getting Your Sh*t Together, and an accomplished humor writer and performer. Catie is on a mission to help young adults, particularly women and those in marginalized communities, become more financially literate and empowered. She does this using simple explanations of complex topics, personal anecdotes, and humorous relatability. Catie understands what it means to be a broke Millennial. 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. But after reading several personal finance books, she realized she was one of millions of young adults in this situation—and this became the catalyst for her current career. Catie is putting a fresh, new spin on the fundamentals of personal finance. She believes learning how to be a successful adult doesn't have to be so serious.
