Ep 30 // Is Silicon Valley is a Myth?

November 26, 2018

First things first...if you're a Money Speaks listener, please do me the honor of filling out a quick survey!

https://www.storybossnation.com/survey

Okay, after you've done that, check out this week's episode where I say goodbye to the Bay area by reflecting with my good friend, and the reason I came here in the first place, Xuan Yue.

We chat about Xuan’s story of leaving her 9-5 as a chemist in Dallas to pursue startup life in Silicon Valley. We then get philosophical about the quest for belonging, the financial sustainability of hustling, and ultimately question whether striking it rich in Silicon Valley is a myth, and maybe the San Francisco gold rush doesn't trickle down to everyone...  

Check it out and as always, don't forget to share with friends and foes!

Okay, after you've done that, let's hear it for the boys!

This week's episode honors my much needed break from women (don't take away my feminist card!)

First, I share a recent story where I learned that I am pretty darn judgmental about men and money, and worse yet, a bit of a righteous hypocrite :(

Then, we hear from Steve Bealey who shares his story where being raised by a single mom has led to a lifelong quest to never be a burden to those around him. To today, where he is teaching insider money secrets as an author and financial planner.

First things first...if you're a Money Speaks listener, please do me the honor of filling out a quick survey!

https://www.storybossnation.com/survey

Okay, after you've done that, check out this week's episode, recorded only hours after a beast of a conference I've been planning wrapped up.

Not gonna lie, I didn't have the brain functionality to put together a full sentence, so I dug into the archives again to share a recording from March 7, 2018, where I celebrated my 1-year quitting anniversary, officially announced the launch of the Money Speaks podcast, and shared my business origin story!!

I also speculate about my great-grandmother jumping into my body and making me quit my job?!?

https://www.storybossnation.com/survey

Okay, after you've done that, check out this week's episode where I confess that I've been so busy with an upcoming conference that I forgot to tell my mom I'm moving in with her (for a few weeks anyway).

Ep 24 // Emily Bartholomew, I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T

October 15, 2018

I loved Part 1 of Emily's story... but Part 2 is my fav!

Last week, we hear Emily's road into setting a budget, getting out of debt, and buying a house..and this week, we chat about the dark side of being a financial independent woman, (like maybe we biologically repulse men?!?)

Not gonna give away any details, just listen to a fun conversation between a couple of I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T ladies! (cue Destiny's Child comeback tour!)

And don't forget to share with your friends!

Ep 23 // Emily Bartholomew, I Bought a House!

October 8, 2018

I'm not going to lie, the thought of home ownership scares the $#*& out of me!

Which is why I knew I had to bring my good friend Emily Bartholomew on this podcast after learning the back story to how she became a homeowner this year.

From getting intentional with her finances, asking for a raise like a boss, and stepping into full adulting mode by buying her very own house!

We talked so much, it turned into 2 episodes, check out part 1 this week!

Then stay tuned next week, where we get real about home-ownership as a single lady.

Ep 21 // Reimagining the Resume

September 24, 2018

One year ago TODAY, I finally understood the true POWER OF STORYTELLING, and it completely changed the way I thought about credibility and what truly made for a "legit resume."

I had been a storyteller for several years at this point last year, so I thought I already grasped the importance of story.

But, what I was totally unprepared for when taking on the title of “Storytelling Coach”, was that it would fill me with doubts and harsh inner thoughts that would paralyze me with impostor syndrome.

Only weeks after I decided to quit my job last spring, I was offered the opportunity to come to San Francisco and a chance to speak at a local meetup. I immediately jumped at the chance!

Spoiler alert, it didn't go so well, but there's a powerful ending with a super valuable lesson for us all!

 

Listen to the full story, and let me know what you connected with in my story!
