Teach Me How To Money
“Teach Me How to Money” is for people who care about (or want to care about) their money. Let's get smarter about our finances—together! Hosted by Lindsay Goldwert, Editorial Director at Stash.

Teach Me to Keep New Year's Resolutions
What was your New Year’s Resolution in 2018? Maybe it was to get to the gym more often or to eat more salads. Or perhaps you told yourself you’d put down your phone more often and read more books. But according to many surveys, including this one from Newsweek, financial resolutions are high on a lot of people’s lists. So why are they so hard to keep? On this week’s episode, Jean Chatzky, host of Her Money podcast and the Financial Editor at the Today show, teaches us how to make better promises to ourselves and make New Year’s resolutions that actually stick.
