In the next few decades, America will experience one of the biggest wealth transfers in history: $30 trillion dollars. Women will be the ones receiving most of that money. Are we going to be ready for it? Well, our guest today is dedicating her profession to helping everyone, men and women, become more financially empowered and admits that she, too, didn’t always understand some of the basics of personal finance.
Veronica Dagher is the host, co-creator and producer of The Wall Street Journal podcast called Secrets of Wealthy Women. She interviews successful women who aren’t afraid to charge what they’re worth, pursue their ideas and build a life of fortune. Notable guests have included Gloria Steinem, Maria Sharapova, Mary Higgins Clark. I actually joined Veronica on her podcast on New Year’s Day, along with some incredible women in personal finance; Jean Chatzky, Bobbi Rebell, Sharon Epperson and Deirdre Bolton.
Veronica’s podcast is more than just a job for her, it’s a passion. After losing her father early in life, she watched her mother struggled to learn how to just write a check during the worst moment of her life. That memory has stayed with Veronica, fueled her desire to manage not just her own finances, but to teach others how to also live a full life.
