119: Why do Women feel Shame around Money?

April 06, 2022

Money is always an uncomfortable topic but that’s why talking about it is so important. Particularly as women, there’s a lot of shame around women earning money and the double standards in the narrative between men and women earning money and enjoying the product of their hard work unapologetically.

In this episode we’re discussing why so many women (us included) feel shame around earning money or being motivated by money and why education around money management are key in opening up the conversation and unlearning the subconscious double standard between men and women earning money.
