So Money - Episode 309

Lea Goldman

Executive Editor at Marie Claire

My guest today is one of my favorite people to chat women, work and money with. I always feel incredibly inspired afterwards. She is a total champion for women. Lea Goldman is the Executive Editor at Marie Claire magazine. There, she’s been at the forefront of bringing important stories to readers about how women can soar in their careers and simultaneously have fulfilling personal lives. Previous to working at Marie Claire, Lea interviewed billionaires and uber successful people for Forbes. She also serves as an adjunct professor at the School of Professional Studies at New York University.

We cover a broad range of topics including:

  • Does sexism still exist?
  • Why women should always ask for at least 20% more when negotiating.
  • Is the cast of GIRLS really reflective of today’s Millennial female? We think not.
