Last year, my friend was interviewing for an amazing job at a great company. In her final interview, she was asked, “Why should we hire you? We get hundreds of applicants for each position - why should we offer you the job?” Normally quick on her feet, this question made her freeze. She thought about her previous positions, the other candidates, her skills, the experiences she had managing teams...she said, “I ...

Health insurance, something that is designed to reduce risk and mitigate costs, can be a source of stress and anxiety. Expensive plans, confusing coverage, and plenty of acronyms might cause you to throw your hands up in frustration, thinking you’ll never wrap your head around insurance. ...

If you’re in a serious relationship and regularly share significant expenses, this post is for you. Money can be a major source of friction in partnerships and if you aren’t financially intimate, it is difficult to achieve your goals. Sharing financial details is a powerful start to financial intimacy. Next, you need to determine how you will manage money together. Every couple manages their money differently and there’s no “one size ...

In a strong relationship, you often feel compelled to share just about everything with your partner – your fears, goals, interests, and passions. As your relationship develops, your connection deepens, and you become even more intimate. But does your intimacy include the topic of finance? Being financially intimate means sharing your financial status, goals, and struggles with your partner. Money is a tremendous cause of friction in partnerships and fighting about ...

Yes, you read the title correctly - you need a prenup. If you're ready to commit to someone for the rest of your life, your relationship should be mature enough to tackle this topic. And, if you’re already married and without a prenup, then you should get a postnup. For simplicity, I’ll refer to prenups throughout this post; a postnuptial agreement serves a similar role for those that have already ...

I’ve been traveling for business for more than a dozen years. Looking for business travel tips? I’ve got you. These are some of the travel hacks that help me survive on the road. Enjoy the experience. There are many articles about the drudgery of travel, but visiting new places is a tremendous luxury. It is estimated that two-thirds of American adults haven’t flown in the past 12 months and 18% haven’t ...

It’s time to stop being sorry. Many of us were taught to be nice, mind our manners, and apologize. Those well-intended (gendered) behavior guidelines can hurt us in the workplace.  Women apologize more than men. Pantene even created an ad that highlighted our tendency to say sorry. However, it is important to note that when evaluating the same set of situations, we identify more of them as apology-worthy compared to men. ...

I am lucky. I grew up in a household where we talked about money. I was raised in a middle-class, Midwestern suburb, and I credit Momma and Papa Financier for so, so much, particularly when it comes to my relationship with money.  In the 80’s, we faced times where my father’s work (tied to the Detroit auto industry) slowed down, and that often meant my parents worked more while the entire ...

One of the most fabulous things about exploring the world of personal finance is meeting other money-minded gurus. On Twitter, I follow loads of personal finance bloggers, advisors, and money mavens. There’s the practical benefit; a constant flow of interesting perspective on money and there’s also the benefit of being part of (and contributing to) a community.  One of the finance writers I’ve had the chance to meet (virtually) is Emily ...

Money mistakes - we all make them, don’t we? Some are bigger than others. This one's a doozy. In late 2004, Mr. Financier and I got swept up in the housing bubble. We were in the Washington, D.C. area and struggling to afford this expensive city. So, we did what every young couple should do - buy a home. (Please read that with the full sarcasm with which it was intended.)  Colleagues, ...
