Family Finances | SEGMENT 1 | #138
Becoming a mother changes your life in so many ways, including financially. Suddenly there is a plethora of new expenses to worry about, college savings to start putting away, all while still remembering to take care of yourself and your future. Kimberly Palmer (@KimberlyPalmer), author of “Smart Mom, Rich Mom,” is here to bring you the tools you need to adjust to financial life as a mom.
Don’t Forget to Prep | SEGMENT 2 | #138
There is a lot of preparation that goes into having a baby. You need to get clothes, prepare a room, stock up on diapers, and so many other things. Kimberly Palmer (@KimberlyPalmer) encourages expecting mothers not to forget to factor in financial strains after having a baby, and if possible to start saving as soon as you know you’re expecting.
Thinking about the Unthinkable | SEGMENT 3 | #138
Our next subject is something that people often don’t want to think about or deal with – insurance. It’s imperative to protect your family, and both life and disability insurance can help alleviate some of the strain that can befall a family should the unthinkable occur. More on this from Kimberly Palmer (@KimberlyPalmer).
Nutritious Choices | SEGMENT 4 | #138
We all want to give our kids the best start in life, and a big part of that begins with nutrition when they’re babies.
