Friends, I am not going to lie. This conversation 100% left me wondering, “Where was this episode when I was a younger woman and had no clue about money?!” It is just chock full of lightbulb moment after lightbulb moment. So, whether you consider yourself to be savvy with personal finance or not, this is an episode you won’t want to miss.
Flipping the Script on Personal Finance
As someone who has, for most of her life, had a tenuous relationship with money, I needed this episode more than I can say. It has taken lots of mess-ups, lots of near misses, and a lot of grace for Greg and me to get to where we are today. So, I kind of what to shout from the rooftops that ALL young women should listen to this! All people who feel they aren’t capable of budget, listen up!
Amanda was so kind and encouraging. One of the main things I took away from our conversation is that “problems” with money are more than normal. Whether your problems stem from your family history, your bank account, or live solely in your head…it’s normal. And they can be overcome.
Here’s the kicker, though. What took Greg and me almost 15 years to figure out, it took Amanda and her husband mere months. And she wants to help others, too! So I really hope y’all will listen in and look her up if what she says sounds like it may benefit you.
Topics Covered in the Episode:
- The intersection of faith and finance
- Beth & Amanda share the events that made them flip the script on how they interacted with money
- The three biggest issues Amanda sees women in particular having with personal finance
- How and when we should start teaching our kids about money
- Why learning about finances and being confident in them actually matters
- What is Wallet Win and how the system is helpful
