This 20-minute rundown is about an (accidental) three-year study I ran on myself.  Back in 2020, I was subjected to hours of content encouraging me to use the “great pause” of a global panini to reassess my entire life. Challenge accepted. At the time, I wrote one of my very first blog posts for a fledgling Money with Katie site, describing all the ways I’d like to level up my lifestyle—the little ways money could buy happiness. I revisited this exercise from my 2023 vantage point and had two major realizations: For starters, most of it came true. Some of it felt the way I thought it would…but a lot of it didn’t.  So how can we set financial goals in a way that’ll actually produce the desired feelings we’re striving for? Tune in to find out.

One listener asks, "How do we navigate money conversations with Boomers who still are stuck on age old concepts of how to make money (buy a house, kids are your biggest asset, real estate is the best investment, etc.)?" Welcome back to #RichGirlRoundup, Money with Katie's weekly segment where Katie and MWK's Executive Producer Henah answer your burning money questions. Approaching money conversations inter-generationally can be a challenge, as times have rapidly changed and older wealth building concepts may not be as relevant anymore. How can we talk about it with the older folks in our lives and share what's different (i.e., higher costs of living but easier access to financial technology)?

21-year-old high school dropout Emma Chamberlain earned $12 million in 2021. How’d she do it? Glad you asked. She’s a successful YouTuber who parlayed her internet prominence into major brand deals (and a coffee company).  When I stumbled across a Bloomberg piece that cited “86% of young Americans” embrace the idea of becoming an influencer, I knew I had to do a deep dive on this wild west of a career field (and the careers these young people are leaving behind to pursue it, like teaching and nursing). Even non-influencers tend to manage their “self” as it’s presented online, as there’s a perceived connection between the presentation of your “online self” and your ability to earn money.

One listener points out that we're prompted to tip everywhere nowadays, including in clothing stores. Should we be tipping every time? If so, what feels reasonable? Welcome back to #RichGirlRoundup, Money with Katie's weekly segment where Katie and MWK's Executive Producer Henah answer your burning money questions.

Did somebody say paradigm shift?  For the first time in more than a decade, the investing world is undergoing a fundamental shift. In the midst of a new interest rate regime, my guest Kristy Akullian (BlackRock investment strategist extraordinaire) joins me to unpack the implications of what the Fed’s moves—and broader economic conditions—might mean for markets.  Hint: There’s probably an asset class or two partially or totally absent from your portfolio right now, thanks to the overwhelming S&P 500 dominance of the last 10 years.

Welcome to a new kind of #RichGirlRoundup! We're trying a new format, where my Executive Producer Henah and I will pick a burning money question and discuss our answers. These new mini-episodes will drop every Friday, and every so often, we'll put out a call for questions on Instagram (@moneywithkatie) and select a few to answer. For our first conversational RGR, we have a spicy (and very complex question): My friends and family keep asking me for money. What should I do? Katie and Henah chat through their framework for loaning out money, how to politely decline, and the cultural and familial obligations associated with money.

This episode was inspired by a conversation I had with two other financial talking heads about how backwards it is to strip your life of all joy in the pursuit of saving every penny: “I’m not sure what they’re optimizing their lives for,” one said, “But it obviously isn’t ‘happiness.’” Friends, I plunked down in the chair after that and wrote for three hours straight (then decided I hated the first draft and basically rewrote the entire thing)—and the result was this episode. Take a trip with me to the fictional town of Ramseyville (I’m the HOA president, in this analogy) and let’s explore the ways in which the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

When we were plotting our content for the last week of the year, our executive producer Henah had the brilliant idea of revisiting some of our most powerful mic drop moments from our 52 (!) episodes of The Money with Katie Show this year. We identified 5 of the best truths to carry forward into the new year. And since our entire team produced the original episodes, we figured it’d be fun to include everyone’s perspectives on these favorite clips. Whether you’ve diligently downloaded every episode or just started listening last week, this roundup is sure to get your mind right headed into 2023. Thanks to Henah, Christie, Sebastian, and Kate for joining me for this episode. Learn more about our sponsor, Vin Social: http://vinsocialvip.com/.

How much money do you have to earn in a HCOL area to become a millionaire in 10 years or fewer? A few months ago, we released an episode about how much someone would need to earn (and spend) to go from $0 to a seven-figure net worth in a decade, and a few of our listeners from NYC and the Bay Area said, “Good try, but can you triple the spending and redo this?” I’m nothing if not accommodating, and the question brought up a whole new topic for me: Is living in high cost-of-living areas worth it? Moreover, how much do you really need to earn in, say, Manhattan to avoid slowing your financial progress? If you don’t earn that much, how far “behind” are you likely to be? We’re diving in.

I’ve onboarded to four different companies in the last five years (long story), and there’s one common throughline that knits together the experiences: The first month of HR paperwork and getting the lay of the land is stressful as hell. In this week’s episode, we’re diving into the major pieces to get right (setting up employer-sponsored retirement account contributions, the “use it or lose it” benefits at your old job, and other consequential-but-tedious administrative stuff). My guest, career coach Eliana Goldstein, is joining me to discuss how to absolutely crush the first 90 days of your new job—everything from internal networking to key conversations to fast-tracking promotions.  Learn more about our sponsor, Vin Social: http://vinsocialvip.com/.

It was only a matter of time before The Money with Katie Show tackled the Goopification of wellness (even “wellness” seems like a term that’s been co-opted in the last decade). In the US, this industry is worth $212 billion—and growing 11% annually. People be spendin’ some money. What if commercialized self-care is really just a millennial pink Band-aid for the problems endemic to our hyperspeed lives? Are we trapped in a cycle of deadlines and bath bombs and existential dread? (Just me?) This week’s episode explores the commodified self-care industrial complex and how it’s awfully reminiscent of other industries marketed specifically toward women, but with the purported benefit of being ~good for you~.  Learn more about our sponsor, Vin Social: http://vinsocialvip.com/.

I have been—by all accounts—incredibly fortunate in my career thus far, but there are a few distinct takeaways I notice when I reflect on the last five years. Since I went to a public state university and studied communications (not exactly a field with investment banking-level compensation), I figured I’d be a median earner forever. Discovering the art of the side hustle (and freelancing, contract work, and online businesses) sent me down a meandering path of trial and error that I’m recounting on the show today.  When I started working, I earned $12/hour, which transitioned later to a full-time salary of $52,000. By 2021, as a 26-year-old with no advanced degree, my total cobbled-together income encroached on $400,000. Looking back on it, I realize: The rules are fake. You don’t need to study finance or medicine at Harvard to make good money (though to be fair, I’m sure those things make it a lot easier). Regardless, it’s my hope that something in this episode will spark something useful for you. Learn more about our sponsor, Vin Social: http://vinsocialvip.com/.

It turns out Americans have been asking the wrong question: It's not, “What’s the difference between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots,’” but rather…“How did those in the 0.1% end up having it all?”  To paraphrase my guest, entrepreneur and venture capitalist Nick Hanauer (https://nickhanauer.com/), “How do [rich people like me] manage to grab an ever-increasing piece of the pie? Is it because rich people are smarter than we were 30 years ago? Is it that we’re working harder than we once did? Are we taller? Better-looking? Sadly, no. It all comes down to one thing: economics.” My thesis? Capitalism is the economic system that creates wealth, and good economic policy is what ensures that all that wealth doesn’t accrue to a very small group of people.

HMO or PPO? Go for the high-deductible health plan, or accept the higher premiums? Opt for the copay or coinsurance model? Can you trust the little brochures that subtly guide you to a “lower-cost” option, or are those marketing materials? How does healthcare use big data to offload more of your medical costs onto you? It’s fascinating that personal finance content doesn’t focus more on navigating the US healthcare marketplace—after all, just one mistake that leaves you underinsured can wipe out months (if not years) of accumulated savings from buying store-brand options and trimming back on subscriptions. When your out-of-pocket maximum is more than $10,000, the stakes are high.  My guest this week, Sarah Khan of My Voice My Health, is a healthcare executive by day and a patient advocate by night. She answers all my questions with a level of insight I hadn’t considered before, and they’re sure to help you make the best choices this open enrollment season. And in this week's Rich Girl Roundup, we talk about if pausing your investment contributions in a bear market is the right move.

Until the global Pamela Anderson, I had never given much thought to ~the supply chain~ and where the things I buy come from—I kinda just took it for granted that I’d have 12 different almond butter options every time I wandered down Aisle 4 at my local King Soopers. And when you’re knee-deep in the “Financial Independence/Retire Early” world, there’s a heavy emphasis placed on attaining the things you need as cheaply as possible. Unfortunately, being able to purchase something for a single dollar in the US usually comes at a cost to another human being somewhere up the chain, and as consumers, we’re more or less shielded from exposure to exploitative labor practices, especially globally.  This week, I wanted to explore consumption habits through the “personal finance” lens. We invited Sana Javeri Kadri, an entrepreneur in her twenties who’s revolutionizing the Indian spice trade from the inside out, to join us for the conversation. Sana (who recently closed a $2 million funding round) is proof that equitable business models are better for everyone from the farmer to the end consumer.

A little confused about how we’ve gotten to…well, ~gestures to everything~? The S&P 500 down roughly 25% YTD, record-high inflation, and rate hike after rate hike?  SoFi’s (https://www.sofi.co) Head of Investment Strategy, Liz Young, joins me to break it all down—and makes a few historically informed predictions about what’s likely on the horizon in 2023. She also addresses why she thinks now’s the time on which we’re all going to look back and wish we bought more, what to buy during downturns, and the relationship between the stock market and the bond market. Katie also answers a question about Roth IRA platforms.

This week’s episode holds two complex truths simultaneously: That sometimes, the answer is working harder, and other times, the answer is policy, interdependence, and community. Sure, individual responsibility is important—but when we try to solve complex, collective problems with individual exceptionalism, we create a recipe wherein quality of life for all but a select few worsens over time.  Our individual wealth accumulation and experience of personal finance do not exist in a vacuum—they exist within the context of the economic policy decisions and cultural norms of our time.  You can work on your metaphoric swimming and freestyle upstream for as long as you’ve got the energy to do so, but the strength of the current is outside of your control. Usually, we talk about your swimming. Today, we’re talking about the current. Plus, this episode features an interview with Rebecca Walker, activist and author of Women Talk Money (https://www.simonandschuster.com/books/Women-Talk-Money/Rebecca-Walker/9781501154324).

I really enjoy the Money with Katie show, but I was disappointed that this show was so unnecessarily slanted towards women. From personal experience I can tell you that men need prenups at least as much as wonen.
