In this episode, Kelly and Danielle talk about how investing and money is viewed differently between men and women and Kelly talks about her personal story with money and investing and how she ended up producing the podcast. They also talk about the importance of not only investing with your values but also incorporating your values into your personal finance.

Danielle and Kelly also talk about the differences between saving and investing. It’s important to remember that over time compounding percentages add up and that it’s essential to stay motivated, even if returns are small at first. Everyone needs to start their money journey somewhere.
