💰 Today we invest differently than previous generations, and we can do even better. 02:05
🌎 When women have more wealth, we will have a healthier Earth: the whole world will be better when we get comfortable believing that we are worthy of wealth. 04:24
🖐 People would rather talk about death than money: being good with finances comes down to five skill sets. 07:13

🎮 Making money is a game, and earning it doesn't make you a bad person: check the market rate for your skill sets. 13:23
😍 Gamify it for yourself - ask for three times what you've asked for before and you'll be shocked by how many people say yes: think of it in terms of self-care and financial health. 16:07
💲 Pay yourself first and automate your savings. 19:45
🛋️ Don’t try to go from couch to marathon - go with the least painful, lowest goal first. 21:36

❤️ A Donor Advised Fund is an opportunity for people to set up a private foundation. 40:39
🤩 Finding an advisor you trust can be really important as we move out of our comfort zone: you're not obligated to spend on tax-deductible gifts - spend with joy. 42:20
🔷 Utor is Latin for “to use, to employ, and to enjoy.” 45:23
