What is the Worth Listening Podcast? In short, it’s a podcast about all things money! Our guests are millennials and professional athletes, because what better way to learn than from peers in a similar situation. Communication is the most important part of financial literacy. When we know better, we have the opportunity to do better. It’s not about the numbers, but the strategies. We focus way to much on dollar amounts instead of the knowledge needed to experience financial growth. No matter your financial situation transparency and knowledge are key to continued improvement. Worth Listening was created to provide just that. After all, the more examples you hear the less you’ll feel alone as you navigate the world of personal finance. Host Lauryn Williams, financial planner and Olympian leads in-depth conversations with guests, having them share what she calls their "money memoir" to offer insight into how money works in their sport or profession. On the Worth Listening podcast, dollars aren’t the most important thing. It’s the process, the techniques, and the stories that deliver real value to listeners. A person’s knowledge is what gives you power, not knowing how much money they make. Everyone has a unique story and experiences both wins and losses. You don’t have to get it all right to be alright. The mistakes are not what’s crippling us, it’s the inability to be open and deal honestly with the cause of the mistake. When a financial mistake or setback happens, what’s important is that you learn, get organized, and move on. Lauryn gives listeners something they can relate to, something that builds courage to be open and take control of their own money story.
