So Money - Episode 1057

Talaat and Tai McNeely

Founders, His and Her Money

A new Northwestern University study based on data from the Federal Reserve estimates that on average for every dollar of accumulated wealth that white families have, many black families have just one cent. Our guests Talaat and Tai McNeely, founders of His and Her Money, are on a mission to help change that quotient.

The McNeely’s are Financial Educators and co-authors of Money Talks: The Ultimate Couple’s Guide To Communicating About Money. They are also the hosts of the top-rated podcast, “The His and Her Money Show” and creators of Power Couples University. Talaat and Tai McNeely (His and Her Money) have been featured in numerous publications such as Black Enterprise,,, Essence, and Business Insider.

We discuss:

  • How and why they paid off their mortgage in 25 years.
  • As parents, the conversations Talaat and Tai are having with their three kids regarding money and race.
  • And should personal finance get political? What does that even mean?
