Three takeaways from our interview:

  1. The faulty math many women make when deciding their career path after having kids.
  2. Buying a home in New York and selling it before moving in. What happened?
  3. A red flag that the guy you’re with doesn’t value your ambitions.

November is all about giving back at So Money!
I’ve partnered with Joe Saul-Sehy, host of the Stacking Benjamins podcast to host a charity fundraiser/competition the entire month. He and I have each selected a personal charity and our goal is to raise tons of money with your help. 
The So Money charity is THON, a dance marathon and the largest student-run philanthropy held at Pennsylvania State University (my alma mater!) that helps raise money and awareness for the fight against pediatric cancer. You can donate here.
The Stacking Benjamins charity is Texas 4000, a 4,000 mile bike ride that University of Texas students take to raise money for cancer research and cancer related causes. You can donate here.
The podcast that receives the MOST money for its charity will win the chance to write the introduction to the other person’s podcast in January (buhahah!) 
We’ll keep you updated throughout the month!
