“Easy to follow money advice – I am only marginally money-smart. Laura’s podcast is easy to follow and understand. She always gives great financial advice and talks about such a variety of topics.”
“Long-time listener still – Laura is great. I’ve learned so much from her over the years. Constantly refer back to her show when I need them and share them with friends. Check out all the available episodes. There’s probably one you’re looking for.”
“Fantastic podcast – This podcast is perfect. It’s educational, entertaining, and easy to digest. From real estate investing to savings plans, Money Girl covers it all!”
“Changed my life – One of the many reasons I went back to school to get my masters degree was because of a tip from this podcast. I don’t remember which episode, but she said something about your time and earning potential being your greatest asset. I took that to heart and decided I was never going to get paid enough to survive in my state job. With that advice and some good choices in real estate investing, I’m not rich but I’m comfortable for a single mom. I’m now using my masters degree and making triple per house what I used to make (and I am student loan debt free). I’m grateful for her succinct style, to the point wisdom, and general feminine power badassery.”
“Amazing! – Thank you for taking my request and making episode 741 out of it. I have listened to the show several times, to make sure I understand all the juicy information you provided. This podcast is worth listening since it’s full of quick and dirty tips. What amazing work you are producing. Thank you Laura, Nuno.”
“Great Breadth of Knowledge – This is the first place I look when looking for any financial information, whether it’s investing, budgeting, or considering a big purchase. It is such an accessible and trustworthy source of the basic info for a huge variety of money topics. I recommend it to so many people!”
“Awesome advice – I’ve been listening to your show for years. Such helpful financial advice! Love your show!”
“So good! – Thank you, Laura! I love this podcast!”
“Obsessed – favorite podcast! – I love listening to this – always short, straightforward and actionable.”
“Browse topics and pick your favorites – Easy to follow and great for beginners on many different topics for all age groups. Ranging from opening up your first credit card, student loans, mortgages, investing, stock market basics, budgeting, high yield savings accounts, and more. Recommend for 18-year olds to mid-30s.”
“Laura is a great teacher – I am in my twenties and I am just now beginning to prepare for my future. Doing the research and trying to learn how to best invest my money was very intimidating. I didn’t know a lot of the verbiage used in many books and webpages or how investing worked. This show has become my best resource. I can pick and choose which subjects I need to become more fluent in, and Laura does a great job at breaking everything down to where a novice like myself can understand with ease. Thanks for motivating me to be my best financial self.”
