Money Dates & Creating Financial Wellbeing for Women

The Financial Services Council of New Zealand recently launched a fantastic campaign about inspiring financial wellbeing in women! Since we already love talking about all things finance, lifestyle and mindset we naturally took up the challenge to be involved in this great initiative.

It all starts with action and the first step is starting conversations about money so Amy & Emma jumped on board to lead the way asking and answering the 50 questions that the FSC provided to prompt some great conversations about money. There aren’t any right or wrong answers, but in a 3 part “Money Date” podcast series Amy and Emma shared their stories, experiences and views by answering the below questions.

Check out our 3 part podcast series “Money Date” (podcast # 23-25) to hear their answers to these great questions.
