Are you ready to make that money, honey? Well, you have come to the right place. Check out four epic episodes that cover everything from managing your finances, to bringing inspiration into your job, being fired, making money through investing, writing a prenup, and so much more.

  • Ramit Sethi on elevating your wealth consciousness
  • Sarah Vermunt on navigating career growth, negotiating a pay raise, and building confidence
  • Manisha Thakor on empowering women to build financial strength, get out of debt, and marry power with purpose

Investing, Gender Pay Gap, and Financial Wellness For Women with Ellevest Founder Sallie Krawcheck (Episode #199)

Sallie Krawcheck is the CEO and Co-Founder of Ellevest, a digital financial advisor for women, and serves as the Chair of Ellevate Network. Her mission is to get more money into the hands of women in order for them to live better, more positive lives.

Sallie Krawcheck was recognized as a top female founder, and as the seventh most powerful woman in the world through various top media outlets. Sallie Krawcheck’s changing the game, she’s thoughtful, and she’s funny.

In today’s episode, the three of us talk about diversity and socioeconomic disparity, what it was like when Sallie entered the workforce, and the pay gap and investment gap between men and women.

Ramit Sethi on Elevating Your Wealth Consciousness (Episode #319)


Ramit Sethi’s book, I Will Teach You To Be Rich, is an absolute game-changer in the finance world. Ramit Sethi is charismatic, grounded, and relatable — not to mention one of the most progressive voices in the financial literacy and wellness space.

Ramit Sethi does not sugarcoat things, and when it comes to finances and getting good at managing them, you have to be real about it. He infamously pushes back against the tired advice of “cutting out lattes” in order to save money. Instead, Ramit focuses on indulging in the things you actually care about and noticing when you spend money on things you don’t really care about.

We also talk about:

  • How to get over making excuses when it comes to finances
  • The connection between human behavior and finance
  • Getting your finances together in your 20s
  • Creating money rules around “yes” instead of “no”
  • Stop worrying about things you shouldn’t

  • Making real money through investing
  • Ramit Sethi on writing a prenup
  • Why buying a house isn’t always better than renting

Sarah Vermunt on Navigating Career Growth, Negotiating a Pay Raise, + Building Confidence (Episode #262)


Sarah Vermunt is an author and the founder of Careergasm. She shares all things regarding her book, Career Rookie. We start off by discussing how job-hopping in your early 20s is actually a good thing, and Sarah gives advice on how to set yourself up for success in your career.

We dive into the reasons people end up feeling stuck, and how you need to take action to build confidence and move forward. If you’re struggling with balancing money-making with the desire to do work that feels good, Sarah Vermunt has you covered.

If you’re a student, graduate, career newbie, or in the process of switching careers, you don’t want to miss this conversation!

Manisha has an MBA from Harvard and possesses a wealth of experience in all things finance. She is regularly in the New York Times and More Magazine as well as on CNN and NBC’s “Today” show.

We also talk about:
