This is by far one of my favourite podcast episodes of the season, and it all has to do with how insightful and wise Hilary Hendershott is. Not only does she hold an MBA and CFP (so she knows her stuff!), she has a great story.
In the beginning, she was terrible with her money. Even when she was working as a financial advisor, helping others with their money, she wasn’t taking care of hers. When her credit cards got maxed out and she realized she somehow couldn’t afford her mortgage payments, that’s when she decided to make a drastic change.
She made the decision to take control of her money, start understanding her money operating system (a.k.a. money mindset) and manage her money in a way that worked best for her and her psyche.
Now, she’s miles away from where she used to be and is driven to help other women do the same with their finances.
This is the perfect episode for some major Wednesday Wisdom, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did when I recorded it (and re-listened to it).
If there’s anything you can take away from this episode, it’s that no matter where you are right now financially, that doesn’t mean you have to stay there. You too can make a change for the better. You just have to take that first step by making it your top priority, then dedicating the time and effort required to follow through with a solid financial plan.
