[0:01] Welcome to Vaginance. A show for those who crave deeper conversations about money, our futures and what it’s like to be a woman in the new roaring twenties.
We strongly believe that everyone would have better sex if we talked about sex and everyone would have better finances if we talked about finances.
Join us as we stumble down different paths to financial independence, figure out just how little we were taught in school, justify each other’s frivolous purchases, laugh and commiserate over expensive mistakes, claw our way out of debt, pull the trigger on big investments and explore the intersection of women, money and more.
It’s time to break up with shame and cozy up to taboo.
Welcome To Vaginance.
[0:47] I was in this cycle where I work for two or three years and then get burnt out and then take a year off and blow all my money and then start back at zero over and over and over again, endless cycle for the rest of my life, and I don’t want to do that anymore.
So I started researching about finances and reading about how to get out of that pattern.
I love the idea of investing in real estate, mine’s just a bit of a slower moving train, because I’m also moving stuff into other places.
[1:15] My big financial mistake is that I have had a lot of fear around, like a very scarcity mindset around money, which has been really positive in some ways because it’s led to this big liquid cash asset, but really negative, because all of that money could have been making money for the past decade.
The more I read and the more I learn, the more I think that investments in index funds is probably the right thing for me and a general investment portfolio.
[1:44] I did the opposite of Becca, where I lived like I had money. I was making a lot of money living in New York and L. A. and spending more.
I’m definitely nowhere near financially independent. That is my goal, and it’s absolutely what I’m trying to work towards, and I’m actually looking at my finances seriously for the first time in my life.
[2:06] We both knew it was happening and we didn’t want to have the conversation so we didn’t change our behavior fast enough. There’s another little disaster that’s sort of looming in the background that has to do with taxes. Should I get into it?
[2:27] Welcome to Vaginance. Thanks for listening.
