In today’s world, finances are one the biggest stress factors in a person’s life. Dealing with bills, living paycheck to paycheck, and understanding exactly where your debt is coming from can become an overwhelming nightmare. But wait — there’s a podcast to help!

Clever Girls Know podcast is hosted by Bola Onada Sokunbi, a Certified Financial Education Instructor and for the the better part of the last two years, she has helped women understand their financial situations. I discovered Bola’s show when I was browsing for a female led business podcast and met her sunny disposition and warm voice with welcome ears.

I will be the first to admit, I know nothing about economics. I work a standard 9-5 job and I make an average income as a college graduate in the advertising field. I have a decent grasp on how to budget and I try to save as much as I can, but find it difficult at times. I am frugal by nature, but I had no idea how much money I was throwing away until I listened to this podcast. Bola helped me achieve specific financial goals, evaluate my own spending habits, and even explained a 401k in a light that I could actually understand.

How They Stand Out

Clever Girls Know podcast features discussions from women from all economic backgrounds. You may hear stories about paying off debt, retirement funds, or even how Bola herself saved over $100,000 in just under 4 years starting with an average $40,000 (listen to episode 002 for more on this story). She encourages women to take control of their financial futures and also manages which has been a godsend for me. The blog is filled with tips/tricks on tax returns, salary mistakes, and small business interviews with other successful women. The writing staff also handles tough topics like asking for a raise, knowing your worth at work, and evaluating your own earning potential.

If you are looking for pointers on how to live a comfortable life while putting away money for your future, I highly recommend Bola’s show. It has certainly made me more conscious of my spending and I think it will help just about anyone.
