Let’s be real, most people don’t like talking about sex or politics, and money is the biggest taboo topic of them all. The Millennial Money podcast flips the script on the “old school” approach to money. Relatable, inspiring, and a little bit gritty, host and award-winning Certified Financial Planner Shannah Compton Game helps listeners uncover their money story to see past the numbers to unlock the lives they want to live. Each week Millennial Money creates a safe space by talking with special guests from around the world discussing money wellness, entrepreneurship, traveling like a boss, and what makes millennials tick. By sharing stories from different perspectives and walks of life, listeners discover what works for them and leave their money worries at the door.
On a recent trip to Indianapolis (my hometown), I had the privilege of joining Mina and Karen of HGTV's Good Bones for coffee and a chat about their thriving career. This mother-daughter home remodeling duo is hilarious (as you'll hear). Karen, a former practicing lawyer, and her daughter, Mina, decided to say "no thank you" to the typical 9 to 5 career, took a risk with money she had saved in an IRA and started a thriving remodeling business in Indianapolis. And then, one day, HGTV came calling, and the rest is history.
What You'll Learn
This was one of my very favorite interviews. Not only were we sitting in a super cool coffee shop in Indianapolis, but I was so inspired by Mina and Karen's story of taking risks, charting your own path, and having a sense of humor about the moments that don't work out. Not everyone gets a call from HGTV, but I think we can all aspire to find a career that we feel good about and helps other people at the same time!
