HerMoney Podcast: Health, Wealth And Self with Jo Ann Jenkins (Episode 21)

Jean Chatzky  |  August 31, 2016

If you want the next half of your life to be just as good as the first, then you've got to get a grip on your health, wealth and self.

If you want the next half of your life to be just as good as the first, then you’ve got to get a grip on these three things, says Jo Ann Jenkins, the new CEO of AARP (and the one in their ads telling us all that we “don’t know AARP”). We talk about how to reimagine the life you’re living now to put yourself on a healthier, wealthier and more self-satisfied track. We also hear about Jenkins’ path to helm this mega-organization as, often, one of the few African-American women in the room.

Then, attention impulse shoppers! “Behavior Gap” author and Certified Financial Planner Carl Richards explains why he believes you should wait 72 hours before buying pretty much anything (I’m down with 24 hours. We discuss.) And Kelly joins me to answer the financial questions you’ve sent us. Stay tuned next week for a whole HerMoney Q&A Show focused in large part on student (and other) debt. Why? Because you keep asking. And we hear you.
