You know when you meet some people and they just feel like an immediate friend? That’s how it felt with today’s guest, Maggie Germano. Maggie is a financial coach for women but she has a super refreshing, friendly approach to personal finance that really resonates with me and I hope it resonates with you, too. We talk about buying our first homes, something we both experienced in the last year, as well as savings strategies and why money is a feminist issue beyond just equal pay.
But first, I have an essay for you and I really enjoyed writing and recording this one. I had a high-anxiety experience with my health recently and now that I’m on the other side of it, I’m sharing it here. Enjoy!
