Guest: Carla Harris

One of her first big professional mistakes: thinking she had to put her head down, get the work done and not ask any questions. She now knows that all mistakes are simply a matter of not knowing. Carla touches on what to do as a woman on a board, how to gain early exposure and experience, and the value of a network. Listen in!

Guest: Janelle Woodward

 

The Head of Fixed Income at BMO. Janelle Woodward is responsible for fixed income capabilities across BMO Global Asset Management’s $250B platform. This position, this responsibility… it’s a rarity as a woman in today’s day. In fact, Janelle was raised in a home with the belief that women were supposed to stay at home. Now, she’s the first generation professional women in her family. After having her first son, she quickly realized there was more that drove her than just being a stay at home mother. Listen in to hear Janelle touch on the importance of a work/life balance and how her three children pushed her to become a better mother and harder worker. Seriously, how does she oversee billions of dollars in fixed income globally and raise three children? Did I mention she also has her CFA? You’re an inspiration to us all, Janelle.

The Lawyer Who Rocks

 

Episode 77: The Lawyer Who Rocks

Guest: Joleen Hughes

The Lawyer Who Rocks! Seriously, though. Joleen Hughes rocks and is the CEO and Founder of Hughes Media Law Group, a law firm that provides in-house counsel services to clients who are innovators in business. Did Joleen dream of being a lawyer? Absolutely not. In fact, after her undergrad, she worked for a music management company where she managed the up and coming bands in Seattle. After realizing that a band is a business with dynamics and people that are “married” together, similar to a startup, she decided it was time for something new. That’s when one of her mentors convinced her to go to law school. One could say, the rest is history! Joleen has been rocking her way through the industry ever since. Her business evolved from creating a brand that’s relatable to people that need a lawyer and who appreciate having lawyers that truly care about them, work hard, and keep their best intentions in mind. Did I mention that Joleen also has her own podcast, The Lawyer Who Rocks? Go give her a listen. And give this episode a listen, too!

Episode 73: Money Girl’s, Money Moves

Guest: Laura Adams

 

Laura Adams is a nationally recognized personal finance expert. She’s the author of many books and audiobooks, including Money Girl’s Smart Moves to Grow Rich a fun, comprehensive guide to personal finance. This book is written in simple language to help readers digest and understand the terminology, tactics, and attitudes that create a foundation for smart financial decisions. From accounting and real estate to owning a floor covering business and a COO for a small company, Laura’s had an extremely diverse career.  She never dreamed of becoming a personal finance writer. She’s always been fascinated by the management side of money as she was one of those teenagers that begged her parents for her own checking account at the age of 12 or 13. Eventually, she received an MBA from the University of Florida in Gainesville, becoming a student of finance through books, gurus, and advisers. This is when she became interested in writing and decided to write a blog about the various topics she had learned in her MBA program. Around this time, Laura fell in love with podcasts and took it upon herself to start her own show in 2007. Since then, Laura has podcasted every week. The following year, she was invited to join the Quick and Dirty Tips Network as the host of the Money Girl Podcast and blog. Laura’s latest book, Debt-Free Blueprint: How to Get Out of Debt and Build a Financial Life You Love, launched this year with detailed advice, strategies, helpful examples, and overlooked programs to eliminate debt and the stress that comes along with it. Laura focuses on financial confidence, being confident in your ability to use your knowledge and accomplish your goals.

Episode 72: Moving the Industry, One Action at a Time

Guest: Michael Kitces

 

A prolific doer and thinker who’s passionate about moving the needle for financial advisors. Michael is a Partner and Director of Wealth Management for Pinnacle Advisory Group, a private wealth management firm. He’s the co-founder of XY Planning Network which is dedicated to helping Gen X and Gen Y advisors serve their Gen X and Gen Y client peers with a fee-only monthly retainer financial planning model. It’s designed to be a turnkey financial planning platform where they champion financial planning for a younger demographic. XY Planning Network has grown rapidly, coming up on their five year anniversary with over 850 advisors. Michael is also the publisher of The Kitces Report & Nerd’s Eye View. He’s a partner at New Planning Recruiting and the Treasure of the Board of Directors of Washington Improv Theatre. Michael’s a public speaker on financial planning and practice management topics, as well as the host of the Financial Advisor Success podcast. Michael got into financial services when he was graduating college and a life insurance sales manager told him he should be a financial advisor because it required hard work and a high income. Despite his background in psychology, financial services are exactly where he landed. Michael has always been intrigued and involved in gender and racial diversity. In fact, at a recent conference, an individual walked up to Michael and a group of women and asked, “Is this the Kitces harem?”. In response, Michael published a blog post asking for the appropriate response to these types of situations. He received a gamut of responses. From those, his biggest takeaway is that just by getting those to pause and think about the situation, is far more victorious than trying to get the conversation out there. Bottom line, let’s continue to have these conversations.
