Were you raised to be financially independent? This question was inspired by this week's HerMoney podcast guest MSNBC LIVE anchor Stephanie Ruhle, who spent 14 years working in finance before turning to a career in television.

Were you raised to be financially independent? Or did your childhood (rocky or otherwise) motivate you to seek financial independence out? These are questions inspired by this week’s guest MSNBC LIVE anchor Stephanie Ruhle, who spent 14 years working in finance before turning to a career in television. She opens up about her upbringing, offers her most important career advice and weighs in on financial advice she thinks women like us need most. In Mailbag, we answer your questions on SEP IRAs and high-interest checking accounts. In Thrive, we cover new, and yes, still frustrating, research on gender expectations. Listen in, roll your eyes with us and try our solution.
