Both Haley and I are special needs care-givers and also run multiple businesses. Haley runs Leadership Girl Inc as well as starting young by helping Girl Scouts learn financial fluency through the Girl Scout Cookie Program.
We talk about the huge sexual disparity in the workplace, and Haley gives her personal experience on this in the boardroom and in a hospital setting.
As usual my guests give you their best advice about finance and business.
- Figure out what your preferred mode of engagement is – online, offline, on the telephone?
- Get clear on your numbers. Understand what comes in and goes out. Statements of cashflow, profit and loss and projections – all of that.
- Figure out what makes sense to spend money and time on and what doesn’t

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
