Smart Women Invest
Summary: NYC based Podcast & Alliance of female millennial FAs, financially educating women of all ages to close the gender money gap.
This week, $mart Women welcomes Lori Cheek to the podcast. If the name sounds familiar, that's probably because you saw Lori on ABC's Shark Tank, where her Cheek'd dating cards business plan was universally panned by the investors. But instead of folding up shop, Lori took the critique of the sharks and went back to the drawing board. Today, Lori re-tooled Cheek'd into a dating app that works off the bluetooth technology on your cellphone. This show is all about set-backs, and what it takes to overcome rejection, living in your vision, and persevering.
This week we meet serial entrepreneur and business coach Carolyn Herfur. Carolyn has helped launched over 100 companies and shares with host Michelle McKinnon her tips and tricks for landing clients. The two also share some tidbits to better networking. We also learn about Carolyn's time "detoxing" from gurus who claimed they could help her in the business world. It's a $mart Women you do not want to miss.
The idea of a prenuptial agreement may sound harsh to some, but this week's guests hope to change your mind. Sophie Jacobi-Parisi and Karen M. Platt are lawyers in New York City who specialize in prenups and other aspects of matrimonial law. They say that with today's legal systems, most couples really should consider a prenup, even as they say their eternal vows.
