Financial Grown-Up Moments
I have a special bonus episode this week to share with you a great new financial resource. Joining me on the podcast to talk about her new book, “How to be a Financial Grownup,” is award-winning journalist and author, Bobbi Rebell. I not only enjoyed chatting with Bobbi about her book, but I also enjoyed the cocktails she created as part of the promotion.
What are we drinking?
Bobbi — The #Sidehustler
Shannon — The #FinancialGrownup
Other Financial Grownup Cocktails:
- Bobbi’s book – which is her side hustle – is a mix of crazy money stories from high achievers and advice/action steps you can do.
- She chose to ask the contributors just two questions: 1. What their financial grownup moment was & 2. A lesson to share
- She admits the book is a journalism experiment gone right.
- Bobbi explains the concept she created for saving money when dating called “date stacking” – which is Shannon’s favorite tip!
- Shannon often has to advise clients about dealing with finances and friends – which is a chapter in Bobbi’s book.
- Bobbi says the biggest shock in the book came from Sallie Krawcheck.
- In the book, Drew Barrymore says she had her financial grownup moment at the age of 7.
- On Bobbi’s website she has a page called the “Bookshelf” with books she recommends.
- Every chapter in the book ends with a checklist that highlights the main points of the chapter.
- Shannon’s financial grownup moment came early on when she was 14 and walked into a bagel store with a help wanted sign in the window; she got the job – the 6am to 2pm shift – and declares it is the underlying story of her life.
- Bobbi & Shannon agree it’s more fun to have more income than to just cut spending.
- TAKEAWAY: Take the time and reflect on whether or not if you’ve had your financial grownup moment and what that says about your financial journey so far!
