Ep 85: Financial Wellbeing & Taking Control of Your Future

Are you in control of your finances, or does the thought of money send you running in the other direction?

You’re not alone.

Nearly half of Australian women find money decisions overwhelming and stressful. And frustratingly, women today are retiring with 42% less Superannuation than men!

Today’s guest, Molly Benjamin, best-selling author of ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Funds’, aims to revolutionize how women perceive personal finance. In this incredibly insightful conversation, Meg and Molly tackle the important discussion of finances and what you can be doing to overcome the financial struggles you may be facing. You’ll learn about common myths we hear about money and, most importantly, walk away with actionable ways to start taking control of your money for the financial freedom you deserve.

In this conversation we discuss

▫️ What stops us from taking control of our personal finances

▫️ The common myths about money.

▫️ How we can take control of our financial future now.

▫️ And so much more…

You can quote us on that…

“The biggest consequence of taking control of our finances is having no control over your retirement.”

Molly Benjamin

“If you do small things now, that is going to have a huge impact on your future.”

Molly Benjamin

“We can all take charge of our money.”
