Hi everyone –
As you may know, I launched a podcast last December called Grow Money Business. Thus far we’ve been hosting the episodes on Libsyn, and posting them each week to growmoneybusiness.com.
This week we’re starting something new. Rather than posting new episodes to growmoneybusiness.com only, I’m going to start posting them here as well. If you’re hearing about the podcast for the first time, you can check out the first 44 episodes on growmoneybusiness.com if you’re interested.
In today's episode we have another distinguished guest: Mariah Hudler. Mariah is a financial therapist who helps people build balanced, comfortable relationships with money. Throughout this episode, Mariah shares her wisdom about what contributes to our attitude toward financial matters, how our backgrounds impact our financial decision making, and what you can do to improve your relationship with money. Stay tuned until the end of the episode, where we talk about some valuable tips for reducing financial stress.
