Ep 74: Make Your Life Better With Gretchen Rubin  

As she was doing research for her last book, Gretchen Rubin started noticing that people respond to internal expectations (the ones you set for yourself) and external expectations (the ones others and society set for you) in four different ways. She also discovered that knowing which of the four you are — a Questioner, Obliger, Upholder or Rebel — is essential when it comes to breaking habits and making new ones. She's here to tell us about it and her new book, The Four Tendencies: The Indispensable Personality Profiles That Reveal How to Make Your Life Better (and Other People's Lives Better, Too).

Ep 73: Launch Your Gig (Side Or Otherwise) With JJ Ramberg  

C'mon, admit it. You've thought about starting a business, launching a side gig or taking that brilliant idea of yours and seeing if it actually has legs. You're not alone: The number of women-owned businesses jumped by 45 percent between 2007 and 2016. And JJ Ramberg, host of Your Business on MSNBC and founder of Goodshop.com, can help you make it happen.

Ep 72: Five Simple Life-Changing Rules Of Investing With Alice Finn  

It took a former rocket scientist to figure out that investing isn't all that complicated after all. Alice Finn's career has taken her from NASA to wealth management to author. In her new book, Smart Women Love Money, and in our conversation, she lays out the only five things you need to do to guarantee financial success — and why embracing your inner investor is feminism's final frontier.

Ep 71: Your Big Life With Ann Shoket  

What happens when you go all in? Can you have work, friends, a relationship, kids and money all on your own terms? Ann Shoket, the longtime editor of Seventeen magazine and author of The Big Life, says it's possible.

Ep 70: Money And Power With Gloria Steinem And Stacey Tisdale  

HerMoney recently had the opportunity to sit down with Gloria Steinem and fellow personal finance journalist, Stacey Tisdale, at the Winning Play$: Black Women, Feminism, & Empowerment event. We cover financial independence, reproductive rights and how the pay gap is wider for black women.

Ep 69: Renting The Runway With Jennifer Hyman  

The average woman buys 64 items of clothing every year, then wears each one just three times or less. If that makes you stop and count, then this week's episode will be an eye-opener.

Ep 68: Dear Debt, I’m Not That Into You With Melanie Lockert  

If you were to write a kiss-off letter to that whopping student loan or credit card bill you're carrying, what would it say? How would it feel to get all of those thoughts and emotions out into the open? Blogger Melanie Lockert, author of the book Dear Debt, knows the answers.

Bonus Mailbag #2  

So many questions, so little time, so we're sending out another Bonus Mailbag edition of HerMoney.

Ep 67: Mindfulness 101 With Caren Osten  

We’re in the heart of summer and it's time to sloowww dowwwnn. That means shifting out of your comfort zone as a type-A person, who wears busy as a badge of honor, to dropping the ball (à la Tiffany Dufu — check her out on episode #57) and saying “no” more often. This week we break that down with my friend Caren Osten, a certified positive psychology life coach.

Ep 66: Confidence From The Inside Out With Bobbi Brown  

Keep it simple. A mantra I share with my friend and makeup maven Bobbi Brown, who literally changed the face of cosmetics when she launched Bobbi Brown Essentials over 25 years ago with her barely-there makeup message of confidence. We talk confidence, business savvy and how to use makeup to enhance your self-esteem — not cover up your insecurities.

Ep 65: Change Behaviors For Good With Katherine Milkman  

We're at the halfway mark of 2017, making it a fine time to check in on the resolutions, or goals, you made for yourself at the start of the year. Did you just grimace? Don’t feel bad if they went by the wayside. This week we're talking with The Wharton School's Katy Milkman. Her research uses big data to explain why changing our behaviors can be so difficult, and — best of all — how to finally make the changes we want for good.

Ep 64: Kickstart Your Big Idea With Alex Daly  

Think you have a great idea but hate the idea of asking family, friends and strangers for money? Meet The Crowdsourceress: Alex Daly.

Ep 63: The Case For Sabbaticals With David Bach  

You know my pal David Bach, author of (newly updated and expanded bestseller) The Automatic Millionaire, from his years of giving great financial advice. What you don't know is that he just came back from an 18-month sabbatical where he realigned his priorities and even learned to meditate. We hone in on the power of all three — automation, meditation and sabbaticals — and how they can lead to a richer life.

Ep 62: The Confidence To Take Command With Angie Morgan  

You think the ranks of women rising in corporate America are thin? Take a look at the Marine Corps, where fewer than 7.6 percent are women — and far fewer are in leadership roles. Angie Morgan, Captain in the U.S. Marine Corps and author of "Spark: How to Lead Yourself and Others to Greater Success," is here to help us change that.

Bonus Mailbag #1  

The HerMoney Mailbag is overflowing and we LOVE it. But we HATE only being able to get to a few questions in each episode. So, here's something NEW: A Mailbag Bonus.

Ep 61: Make More Money With The Penny Hoarder’s Kyle Taylor  

This week, we've got a ramen-to-riches story for you. Kyle Taylor, founder and CEO of The Penny Hoarder (a booming personal finance site) had a spending addiction and could not, would not, ask his parents to bail him out one more time. So he started gigging (i.e. beer auditing, movie preview auditor). Then he started blogging about how you could do the same.

Ep 60: Bad With Money? Meet Gaby Dunn  

Politics, sex, religion or money: Which of these topics is most likely to make you uncomfortable if it came up at a dinner party? For many, the answer is money.

Ep 59: Jill And Jean On Money  

Two personal finance nerds walk into a bar... If you think you know how this conversation goes, you're wrong.

Ep 58: The Doctor Is In: Elisabeth Rosenthal On Managing Your Medical Costs  

It only takes a one-night stay in the hospital to understand how healthcare has become a $3 trillion industry in the US. Even getting lab work done out-of-network can put this into perspective. And don't even get us started on prescription drug costs. Help is here in the form of Dr. Elisabeth Rosenthal, author of the new bestseller: An American Sickness.

Ep 57: Drop The Ball(!) With Tiffany Dufu  

Good wife, good mother, good daughter, good sister, good friend, good worker. Isn't enough enough already? The inspiring Tiffany Dufu, author of the new memoir and manifesto, "Drop the Ball: Achieving More by Doing Less," says yes.
