Ep 5: Marriage and Money with Lisa Kaplin

Feb 24, 2022

Our guest on today’s show is Lisa Kaplin, a psychologist, Certified Professional Life and Executive Coach, and an experienced corporate speaker. A lot of stress can come from our relationships and finances but Lisa is helping women work through these stresses to have healthier and wealthier lives.

Lisa will explain how we can all have healthier conversations around the topic of money with our partners. Building a life together isn’t easy, but improving communication around our finances can elevate our relationships and financial future.

We all come into a relationship with our own views on money. Many people don’t have the same experiences and financial views as their partners. So it’s no surprise that finances can be one of the top reasons for an argument in a relationship. But, Lisa is changing the game by teaching couples to approach money in terms of curiosity and understanding instead.

Join us today as we discuss: 

  • Lisa’s career, background, and involvement in Purse Strings
  • Why do we have a hard time talking about money in relationships?
  • The transfer of wealth that will be passed to women and how we can prepare them for this
  • Her tips for young and newly married couples forming their money mindset together
  • Ways women and couples can overcome insecurities and gain confidence in money decisions
