A recent essay in the Wall Street Journal made the case that women are both happier — but also overall but sadder — in our daily lives than men are. Why? We’re juggling countless competing priorities on our never-ending to-do lists, including managing our jobs, wrangling our kids' schedules, and keeping up with everything at home.  Betsey Stevenson, economist and professor at the University of Michigan, has conducted groundbreaking research in this field. She joins us to talk about why women’s happiness has been on the decline since the 1970s — despite so many great strides for women’s eq ..read more

Navigating money issues with your family is hard. Navigating money issues with your family is even harder when you’re a first-generation American. First-generation children of immigrants face unique cultural and emotional barriers and often find themselves at the intersection of building a financial life for themselves and supporting their parents financially.  Gigi Gonzalez found herself facing this dilemma when she got serious about her finances and realized the information she was reading didn’t align with her lived experience or her values.

Think, for a second, about all of the things you do before you head to the gym or go out for a run. Do you wear special running shoes? How do you tie them?

And this doesn’t include all of the other time we’re supposed to spend making our closets more manageable and our wardrobes more streamlined.  Kim France says it’s time to ditch ALL the rules, and start organizing our closets with more intention. She explains how ..read more

There are the ones you have with your friends over coffee to catch up on life, the ones you have with a family member while walking the dog, and countless others throughout your week.
