Financial Fluency Episode #37: Worth it! With Amanda Steinberg

I’m so thrilled to welcome this week’s guest to the show. I know I would absolutely not be doing what I’m doing on this show and in other areas in my life if I hadn’t met Amanda back in 2012.

Amanda and I spoke about what to do if you have a fluctuating income (which most of us entrepreneurs do!), how she’s ended up hanging out with European prime ministers and the different messaging women and men get from the media around finances.

I do two episodes every week, one solo and one interview.

I also have the fantastic Mastering Money Matters group, a monthly membership group where you can join and we talk about all the different pieces week by week of getting our money systems set up and how we look at, think about and value money and all areas of our lives.

It’s a very supportive and private group just for women and it’s a safe place to hang out and talk. It’s kind of the extension of the interviews I’ve been doing with mainly entrepreneurs on this show, and it’s where we can talk about the things we may not want to broadcast out to a broader audience.

Let’s Keep the Conversation Going

    Thank you Jen Turrell. I admire what you are doing and why you are doing it too x This is so OTT but there is something revolutionary like the Black Panthers getting grocers for the neighbourhood in you charging $19 dollars for something that can make such a difference to others lives.

    Forgot to say. I’ve been doing something right for a while. I decided about 6 months ago to stop trying to kill my debt, treat it as another bill and have financial liquidity which has made me feel so much less crushed. Like Amanda was saying. It’s great to hear women talk about money in this way. It keeps making me think of the true depth of women’s lib and the journey from the 50’s housewife. I was having a similar experience listening to your guest podcast on The Creative Soul lab the day before yesterday. A bit like there would be no food without bees. The journey from not being able to have a mortgage in the 70s to now is as big as going to the moon, and women like you and Amanda are at the coal front of that movement.
