LISTEN IN: #BTS w/ Conscious Chatter + Good Support (the podcast) - episode 2.0 w/ Georgia Lee Hussey
Let’s face it, even muttering the word ‘finance’ can feel freaky--especially when you may not even have a savings account worthy of thinking about. In our first BTS (behind the scenes), aka the launch of our #BTS w/ Conscious Chatter x Good Support podcast, we try to wrap our head around the why’s. Specifically, why what we do, and how we choose to do what we do, matters. And our first topic is finance, because money speaks as loudly as our votes do each election season. We have more power than we think AND more options to exercise it. Listen in while we talk to two professional women slaying it in a field that used to be an old boys club, who are redefining what it means to be a professional in the money space. Because duh - it’s time to break the rules, create new ones and align ourselves with our beliefs AND bank accounts.
Part Two - Georgia Lee Hussey & Modernist Financial
Georgia Lee Hussey is a dream girl. Sure, she’s got great style and an air of confidence that is intoxicating, but her real magic is her ability to encourage an individual to empower themselves through how they manage their finances. From talented sculptor to certified financial planner and founder of Modernist Financial, Georgia has the ability to understand how collaboration can create a more enriching experience (and savings) for the long term. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have been able to pick her brain and gain some much needed perspective on taking our financial matters more seriously. Last episode we learned the ropes and now we're exploring how to mature our concepts of fiscal responsibility, with Georgia here to help us digest the next steps. And we consider ourselves lucky to have her perspective for future-scaping our own realities. You’ll love the listen, we promise.
