Who are we? Why do we do what we do? Get to know Lindsay and
Meghan in all their glory.
Black is the New Red: THE place
to have Canadian money conversations! www.facebook.com/groups/blackisthenewred
Who is primarily responsible for
managing the finances in your household? Do you keep separate bank
accounts? What works well for you, and why?
Go talk to someone about MONEY.
If you don’t like your family, friends, or neighbors today, talk to
a pro, or jump into Lindsay’s 9000+ member group for Canadian money
TL:DR Version Ep 1 - Intro:
- Lindsay & Meghan host the Money Stuff with Moms
podcast because they fully understand the #MomLife AND the
importance of #adulting. They bring you no fluff, jargon-free (and
hilarious) conversations about money to give you quick wins while
you’re sitting on the sidelines of your kid’s ball
- These no-nonsense Moms are seasoned
professionals in the finance industry who will be the first to tell
you that seasoned professionals are NOT always right. The thing
about personal finances is that they’re PERSONAL! As Meghan would
say, it’s a beautifully annoying cliche.
- Meghan is a Certified Financial Planner with an
HBcomm finance degree, but her real super power is being able to
translate all the technical jargon into step-by-step REAL
- Lindsay is an Accredited Financial Counselor
with a STRONG opinion that Moms are SUPERHUMAN. They’ve got the
brains to conquer whatever they put their mind to, but let’s be
real, with everything on their plates… they gotta ration their
bandwidth and be choosy about where they spend their time and
- Money Stuff for Moms was created to bridge the
gap between the super technical in depth financial literature and
clipping coupons to save a buck. We know that Moms want more than
Pinterest hacks, but don’t have time to analyze the complexities of
the IFRS9. Moms work too dang hard to feel like they’re living
paycheque to paycheque.
- It’s an IMPOSSIBLE expectation to think that
one person can be responsible for their tiny human’s daily routine,
household chores, family fun day planning, vet appointment,
scheduling home maintenance, attending the parent teacher
conference, pruning the garden, visiting your mom, going to work….
AND be an expert in managing account structures, budgeting, and
investing. Moms can do ANYTHING… but they cannot do EVERYTHING.
Meghan and Lindsay are here to help.
- Both Lindsay and Meghan have noticed that over
the past couple of decades, there has been a pendulum swing when it
comes to who is managing the day to day finances in the household.
If we go back in time to Lindsay & Meghan’s grandparents' prime, it
was almost always the man who paid the bills, kept track of the
insurance policies, and had the mortgage details ironed out. Today,
women are wearing the “Chief Financial Officer” caps in their
homes. Why is that?
- “F THE PATRIARCHY!!!!!” is one idea. (We joke,
but is there truth to women asserting their financial independence
by ensuring they have a strong grasp on their family’s financial
- Maybe women are just better at it. Organization
and multi-tasking are stereotypical PINK strengths. And since there
are SO many more things to remember this day in age, maybe men just
feel better about their spouses dealing with it. (Back in the day,
you had one paycheque, which you had to walk to your physical bank
to cash, and you paid your handful of bills. Today, we have a
bazillion options for banking, investing, and insurance. We have
side hustles on top of our regular 9-5’s. And let’s not even talk
about the list of bills (how many subscription services do YOU
- How do things work in your household? Who does
the majority of the financial chores? Do you have separate bank
accounts? What works well for you, and why? Your input to the
conversation has incredible VALUE… because when we can all DO
BETTER if we KNOW BETTER. Share your knowledge!
