How Do We Define Ourselves...Financially?

How Do We Define Ourselves...Financially?

Fortune Favors the Bold - The Official Mastercard Podcast - January 16, 2020 - 31:53

Welcome to Season 3 of Mastercard’s Fortune Favors the Bold! Ashley C. Ford is back, and she’s kicking off our season by diving into the financial question that underlies everything else we’re talking about this season: how do we define ourselves financially? For a lot of people, a surefire way to really feel your own financial identity is to start making financial decisions with someone else. In this episode, we’ll be talking to a couple who is in the process of figuring out their own financial identities, including: how to maintain financial independence, what to do if your partner comes from a different financial background than you do, do you have to merge bank accounts”? And how do you even start these big, motional conversations? Ashley will then bring these types of questions to a panel of experts who know how to navigate the murky waters of love and finance. We’ll hear from Anna Sale, host of WNYC’s Death, Sex and Money, CBS news business analyst Jill Schlesinger and Daniel Lavery, AKA Slate’s “Dear Prudence.” Together they’ll give our guests and listeners insight to help their love lives thrive and anxieties subside when money enters the equation.
