So often we hear about startups taking investor dollars, or venture capital, or taking on debt to start a business. Our show today highlights one woman, Cate Luzio, and how she, thanks to her consistent savings over the years, afforded her own way to launching her business and becoming an entrepreneur.
She just decided a year ago to launch Luminary; a new collaboration hub in New York dedicated to providing women with a beautiful and functional space to work and grow their network. Prior to forming Luminary, Cate was the Executive Vice President and Global Head of multinational corporate banking at HSBC. There, she was responsible for roughly $2 billion = in revenue and teams globally in 55 countries.
Cate and I discuss the impetus for her transition into entrepreneurship. We also talk about the reasons behind what seems to be a stagnant level of women in the workplace since the 1980s. Also, couldn’t let her go without asking her about some of the money memories from childhood that shaped her perspectives today.

We all know what emotional intelligence is for the most part, I think, but what about emotional fitness? We're talking to Susan Packard. She's the author of Fully Human: Steps to Grow Your Emotional Fitness in Work, Leadership, and Life. It comes out this month.
Susan is a pretty big deal. You may know her by the brands that she has built. Most notably, she helped to build TV brands like CNBC and the Food Network. She was the second employee and COO of HGTV, which is my favorite channel. Later, they sold HGTV for $15 billion in 2018.
Susan's career has now led her to thought leadership, speaking, writing. Her latest book again is called Fully Human. In it, she shares insights that she gained during her years at places like HGTV. Susan believes there's a gap between what we know about emotional intelligence and how we live. In this book, she offers invaluable tools that bridge that gap. We talk about her upbringing in Detroit, managing money in her marriage and navigating very male-dominated industries as a leader and executive.

Our guests today are going to share some real estate secrets. The two of them are cofounders of Goodegg Investments, where they help everyday people invest in cash flowing real estate. What is this all about, how can we get involved, how risky is it?
Many of us are raised with this ideal around owning a home. Buying a home is the American dream and lately, I think that has been up for debate. But I think what is *still* very interesting is investing in real estate, finding the right markets, finding the right kinds of properties, turning these properties into investments and making them cash flow positive. But of course, all that comes with a lot of work, a lot of research. It’s a whole job!
Our guests today are trying to simplify this process, streamline this process and invite more people to participate in real estate investing. Annie Dickerson and Julie Lam cofounded a company named Goodegg Investments. They’re both working moms and experienced real estate investors who joined forces to find a way to help other busy people learn how to invest in cash-flowing real estate - without being a landlord.
To date, Goodegg Investments has co-syndicated over $400 million dollars of real estate assets. Annie and Julie are going to walk us through the behind-the-scenes of their business, how they identify good properties, how they more or less recession-proof their business and also, financial advice they were raised with that impacted their lives today.

Did you know over 70 percent of wealth doesn’t last beyond three generations? That means if you’re currently working hard to build wealth and create a financial legacy that will outlive you, you might want to think about sitting down with your family and making sure they know how to keep your investments growing.
Linda Davis Taylor is the CEO and Chairman of Clifford Swan Investment Counselors in Pasadena, California, and a champion for women’s economic independence and strength. Clifford Swan is the nation’s oldest investment advisory firm and has been in existence for over 100 years.
Linda is not only the leader of this firm. She’s also a frequent speaker on wealth transition, family governance, and philanthropy. Linda wrote the book called ‘The Business of Family’ to help educate families on multi-generational financial sustainability.
She believes that “Being rich means having a sense of purpose, knowing where you came from, defining your value systems, and questioning how you’re living.” And, if you want your wealth to last generations, it’s incredibly important to run your family like a business, where everyone is educated about how to handle money, how to save it, and how to grow it.
I’m excited to hear more about this philosophy today and learn from someone who has done so much to advance women in the financial industry.
