The podcast to get inspired and feel good about your money

Tune in every other week, on Wednesday mornings to get empowered 

Why you should listen

The topic of money is often taboo and women aren’t always taking ownership. Having worked 10 years on trading floors in London, often as the only woman, I want to challenge this unspoken reality and do something about it. And a lot goes through education. Financial literacy is of major importance and the earlier you grasp it, the better you can plan your life ahead, your projects, and reach financial peace of mind. It’s a real liberator and it is in this context that I am launching Money Chill Out, to help you demystify the intimidating world of finance, and have an open, honest, and frank conversation. So let’s talk about money, mindset, investment habits, and any best practices and join me on this journey to get more comfortable, be inspired, and get empowered!”

Episode #27: Special edition, 1 year anniversary

Welcome to this Special Edition to celebrate 1 year of Money Chill Out podcasts. Time flies when you have fun and I am so happy and proud we’re here now! 
It’s never a given when you launch and start something completely new. Back in 2019 podcasts weren’t a media I was listening to, so when I thought about creating one in early 2021, I had, of course, no idea how to do it. In this episode, I am speaking about how I started, how I improved and got better, and the fears and doubts I faced about consistency, finding guests, and inspiring themes. 
I am also reflecting on Financial Wellness to bring on the recorded episodes. It will bring you perspective, refresh some concepts, and you’ll see how every theme is connected as you need a holistic view to feel good with your money.
Thanks so much to all my guests, for your time and your willingness to share, your experiences are invaluable. Thanks so much to my listeners, who share and support this podcast, your comments, feedback, and introductions are precious. 
And there are also a few milestones we can celebrate like the first 1000 downloads after a few months, the global reach on the 5 continents, and the continuous effort to release an episode every 2 weeks. 
To many more, and an immense thank you from the bottom of my heart!

      Episode #26: Crypto money

      Today I am very pleased to welcome Jean Marie, a computer engineer who has discovered cryptos back in 2016. And he really got into it, launching his YouTube channel in 2017 and writing 2 books in 2018 and 2019. We’ll talk about the technology behind blockchain, why it’s an entire new world and how we can use cryptos. We’ll of course discuss about how to invest and how to start with the 15 000 cryptos available in the market. With a lot of FOMO going on and emotions taking over, we’ll also speak about mental health. Having suffered a burnout in 2021 because of too much work, he is well aware money doesn’t bring happiness and it’s important to go back to the basics. Throughout this chat, I loved how Jean Marie gave perspective, so let’s go back to “1995 for the internet” and open our minds!

      Episode #25: Redefining successes

      Sandra is one of those people who have communicative energy. She does a lot, works a lot, but never forgets why she is here: to learn, grow, practice kindness and cultivate her happiness. She climbed the corporate ladder in an impressive way being the head of Facebook IQ for South Asia Pacific. She became a public figure in Singapore through her environmental activist work with the Up 2 degrees movement she created so that aircons are set at 23 degrees inside. She went twice to Antarctica, once with one of the most famous explorers Robert Swan and as a UN women ambassador. She decided to quit the best job, the best lifestyle to pursue her dream: sailing the world and really being. She trained for 6 months, felt very privileged to be on the “Round the world clip race”, came back to London, and self-published a children’s book on her adventure. She really pushes boundaries, connects with people, and inspires them. That’s probably why she is been featured in a lot of media from the Financial Times to the London tube! Let’s spend the next hour with this amazing woman who is fun, sharp, down-to-earth, and driven. Let’s go!

      Episode #24: Fundraising

      Today I am very happy to welcome Simon to Money Chill Out, to speak about fundraising. Being in his 20s he has specific views on things, has learned on the go, and a lot by himself. This is pretty refreshing especially when we see the end results: he created Havr, a software company in 2016, experienced a 50% quarterly growth, had 25 employees, raised capital twice for a total of EUR 5.5 million, and has been awarded Forbes under 30. In this talk, we’ll speak about values and how to create a successful start-up, we’ll go through the fundraising process, and how to prepare to pitch. And we’ll stay down to earth, focusing on well-being, when Simon and his partner decided to sell because they needed to do another round of fundraising but weren’t ready for it. A great example of hard work, eagerness to learn, good sense, and vulnerability, let’s go!

      Episode #23: Deep dive in fixed income

      Today with Timothee Pubellier, we are doing a deep dive into fixed income, those products that provide periodic income payments at predetermined interest rates. They are often seen as more technical and complex than equities, but they can be great for diversifying your portfolio and for providing additional revenues. Even though he serves institutional clients, today’s focus will be on individuals so that we have a great overview on why, how, and when we can use bonds in our portfolio. And we’ll use our expert to go further, discussing portfolio construction, diversification, and the current economic environment. Let’s embark in this financial literacy discussion, where concepts are explained for everyone!

        Episode #22: The ladies bank

        Today it’s an honor to welcome Alix de Renty, the person behind the Ladies Bank by Oddo BHF, an information website dedicated to women’s financial needs. After seeing so many of her female clients sending their brothers/fathers/lawyers for appointments in her private banker role, she decided to do something about it and launched a free content platform back in 2016. Thanks to varied characters and the issues they may encounter throughout their lives, her goal is to make you want to play an active and positive role in your finances. This side activity is her way of giving back time, knowledge, and education on such an important matter. And it’s for everyone, you don’t need to be a millionaire!

        In this inspiring talk, we’ll go through what it is to be a private banker, how she helps wealthy clients to build a portfolio, and what we can do at our level. We’ll speak about women’s wealth, and how despite representing 50%, their needs weren’t met by the industry. We’ll learn about studies they have conducted to really understand what truly matters to women, and what they have implemented to make them more care and reach much more engagement. It’s all about meaning and purpose, not about the best performance! Let’s go!

        Episode #21: Sustainable money, a discussion on social and environmental performance

        Today we are speaking about sustainable money or how to align profit and purpose whether you are a company, an individual, or an investor. And we are joined by @Marine Hortemel who will immerse us into her world on how she helps and guides companies to get the well-known Bcorp international label. We’ll go through initiatives taking place to take care of our one planet, from new banking concepts to impact investment funds and how we can better spend our money. We have to be alert on ESG matters, reading labels, and enquiring about processes so that there is no space for greenwashing. We as individuals have a lot of power, let’s get inspired!

        Episode #20: New year, new you with your money

        With the year coming to an end, it’s always good to reflect and take perspective. This year’s achievements have gone way beyond what I imagined. I launched my podcast being 8 months pregnant and a few episodes later, I had listeners in each of the continents. This is the magic of our globalized world and the power of reach to do it in English.

        So for the 20th episode I, @Marieka Finot, am doing the talking on a few principles that I follow and that have helped me hugely with my money. Because I find them of great value, because I am sure they could serve you too, and because they are a great way to achieve financial wellness, I am sharing them with you. Listen having an open mind, take those that suit you, enquire about others, and adapt them to your way of doing. This isn’t a lesson, nor an exhaustive list, just my top 5 principles discovered thanks to my experience and through helping others with my coaching. 

        My key principles

          1. You need to go financially naked, or in other words, you need to open up on the subject of money. 
          2. Value your time, your happiness and link it to your spending. 
          3. Make your money work 
          4. Think about the future
          5. Detach yourself from money and have a gratitude mindset

        Episode #19: The definition of a business woman

        Today I am having a discussion with A businesswoman. Kristen juggles a CFO job with a side hustle and a family of 4. She is impressive in many ways: She started to be money educated at 6 years old, started working at 13, and made her way up in the corporate world thanks to a bit of luck and lots of hard work. She has an entrepreneurial spirit and isn’t afraid to fail, she just doesn’t want to have any regrets!  Her way of doing is pretty refreshing, she trusts people, delegates, spends 1 hour exercising each day, and doesn’t beat herself up if she can’t fit everything in. A very down-to-earth and inspiring woman, let’s listen!

        Episode #18: Knowing your worth

        Being paid for your worth and having a fair salary seems pretty obvious, but very often when it comes to money and especially with money at work, we can feel awkward and uncomfortable.  Do you know that the vast majority of women never negotiate a salary? Why isn’t there full transparency on salary disclosure? Do you think and hope companies will recognize your worth and give you pay rises? The corporate world doesn’t work that way, and you need to advocate for yourself. And today, we are joined by Johanna Perrin, a talent lead who will empower you with practical tools and tips to prepare for a salary discussion. With her experience, you’ll take some perspective knowing what’s being done in the recruitment space, put yourself into companies’ shoes, and through research and knowledge you’ll get more assertive and find credibility. A rich discussion that may change your way of seeing things and push you to act! Let’s go!

          Episode #17: Dual couple career, or when one put his career on the side

          Today I have the pleasure to welcome PH, a new generation of feminist man, who is trying to change old norms and behaviours. Taking care of his daughter while his wife was in the US trying to grow her company, he realised what it is to be a single parent in charge and the challenges it created, having to leave work at 5pm everyday and barely having any social interactions. Earning less than his wife and only working 2 days a week as a freelancer, his relationship with money has changed, so has their way to invest. The rest of the time, he is working on a side hustle to empower men at birth with videos on how to raise their partners’ oxytocin levels. Such a great insight into a more traditional woman’s way of life, let’s go!

          Episode #16: Money Mindset

          Today I am welcoming Laura, a 27 year old Londoner who is sharing her money journey, in an uncomplicated way. Because she is relatable, is starting from scratch and learning along the way, she inspires many people to get better with their money. Talking about all aspects of saving, budgeting, clearing a debt, and investing, she does it in a fun, judgment free and jargon free way. And she is here in Money Chill Out to connect the emotional to the practical, so let’s go straight to step 1 as everything starts with money mindset.

We’ll speak about the onset of her blog, her start as a video publisher, and how she slowly grew to be able to live from her activity and diversify her sources of income. Now being pretty successful she doesn’t forget all the efforts and is still very down to earth. Let’s hear about her adventure she compares to a marathon!

          Episode #14: A success story for a business with values

          Today I am welcoming Benjamin, the co-founder of Unbottled, a French-made solid beauty products company that wants to free bathrooms from plastic and chemical products. With people’s willingness to reduce waste and be more planet-friendly, their products have found a sweet spot. And it’s booming! A year since the launch, they expect to reach 5 million of sales by year-end. From finding the right business partner to starting a brand and reaching out to clients, you’ll get brilliant and down-to-earth feedback and advice on their adventure, of course with a financial and money lense.

          For anyone looking to launch his project or anyone who likes to learn about success stories, this episode is for you, you’ll learn a lot and for sure get inspired!

              Episode #13: Being self employed and all that comes with it

              Today I have the pleasure to interview Lauriane Gepner, a travel and lifestyle journalist, and we are talking about being self-employed and all that comes with it.

                  Episode #10: Money when moving to a new country

                  Expatriation is amazing: it’s a new challenge, it widens your mind and it’s full of discoveries. Still, you need to understand well the local specificities in order to be able to negotiate your salary and leave with good conditions.

                  Episode #9: Earning less than your partner

                  Today I am with Benjamin, who earns less than his wife. Like 25% of couples, he is not the primary breadwinner and feels great about it.
