Kate is Making Space for Conversation

Hey, fellow money nerds: how do you talk to people who don’t know or don’t care quite as much as you do? Kate Smalley is our guest this week because A) as a maker and marketer with lots of financial services clients and a paraplanner at Spring, she’s really interested in how people talk about money and B) we really like her. You will too, trust us.

It’s a bit of a full-circle moment for Season 4, since we opened up the year hoping to have better conversations about money, so it’s a good point to take a brief hiatus. Watch this space for new episodes soon!

You can help make Because Money happen for as little as $1 a month through Patreon. You can also support the show by listening, sending us questions, and giving us those pretty gold stars on iTunes.
