"You know the saying that ‘every dollar you spend is a vote for the kind of world you want to live in’? Well, through this podcast, we want the women of Aotearoa to have some more votes so we can start building that world." - P.M.S podcast host Michèle A’Court.
Introducing a new podcast series, P.M.S - redefining Power, Money, Security for women.
Episode five - Your Money Roadmap - drops today and features advice from Mercer’s Glenys Wilson and financial youth mentor Latayvia Tualasea-Tauta, on how we can take the learnings of the past five weeks and implement them, stat.
In last week’s episode, Investing 101 we spoke with Simran Kaur from Girls That Invest and Mercer’s Kylie Willment on the why and the how of investing, made easy.
Today’s final episode is all about pulling together our "learnings" from the past five weeks to build out your money roadmap.
Mercer’s head of financial advice Glenys Wilson, aka our financial fairy godmother, is as always here to talk us soothingly through things with her usual mix of compassion and expertise. This week Glenys has some great, practical advice for alleviating anxiety around money so we can remove any barriers that are stopping us moving towards our goals. Plus we’re joined by financial youth mentor Latayvia Tualasea-Tautai who is, quite frankly, an inspiration and a beacon of hope for the women of the future.
Latayvia is quick to point out that "you can’t budget your way out of poverty" but points to a recent study that showed 83% of young people get their financial advice from their parents, and how this obviously disadvantages those from intergenerational poverty and trauma. "[my family] never talked about money, other than running away from loan sharks. So I think the opportunity to be able to want more for me and for my community, comes from all of those sacrifices that my parents and my village went through so that I could go from survival mode to thriving".
Find out how Latayvia manages her budget, plus why she has a special "self-care" account.
