Episode 11: When A Spender And A Saver Say ‘I Do,’ How Do They Manage The Money?

Candid. If I had to pick one word to describe Jennifer Weiner, author of “Good in Bed,” “In Her Shoes” and so many other great reads, I’d pick that one. Though, smart, funny and fearless also come to mind. I knew I wanted her on the podcast the minute I read her frank essay about the fact that she and her new husband are polar opposites financially. (Though I confess, I am also an avid follower of her savvy Bachelorette Twitter feed, which I read while I watch). Anyway, I was thrilled to meet Jennifer in Philadelphia for this week’s episode of HerMoney. We had a fun and very frank conversation about negotiating money, particularly in a second marriage, how she worries about raising two young daughters to respect money and why she waited to have a million dollars in the bank before she had her kids. We also share our “women in the workplace” experiences, and how, sadly, women bullies seem to have no age limit. Of course Kelly is with me to answer your financial questions about how to cultivate a network and safe online money management. And, we tackle the topic of credit card debt head in this week’s Thrive segment. Please join us today, subscribe and share with your BFF’s (Jennifer wrote that book, too) and let us know what you think!
