The Money Flirt Podcast

By Stephanie Trujillo

Welcome to The Money Flirt Podcast, a supportive space to open up about our raw and real money stories. The Money Flirt was born from the idea that we all deserve to have a light hearted, flirty, and fun relationship with money. I'm your host, Steph, and a few years ago I started to investigate the ways that I was programmed since childhood to think and behave poorly around money. In this podcast, I interview guests who open up about their own money stories, shedding light on their journey, so that others may feel less alone.

22. What Are You Asking Money to Do?

There are limits as to what money can do. In this episode, Diana Yanez asks the important question: what are you asking money to do that money can’t do?
Diana is a financial empowerment coach, educator, and speaker who helps groups get clarity on what they want to create in their life and how money can be a tool to get them there. In the episode, we talk about how money is a wonderful tool, but cannot serve as a one-size-fits-all solution to our very human desires.
While her technical skills as a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) help clients quickly navigate financial decisions, it’s Diana’s ability to empower her clients that transforms their relationship with money.
In this episode, we talk about:

Healing money through community
Financial empowerment through the lens of social justice
Money as a specialized tool
Money archetypes

16. Exploring Our Relationship to Debt/Nuestras Perspectivas Hacia Deuda (Bilingual Episode!)

This is the first Money Flirt Podcast episode in both English and Spanish! First, you’ll hear my talk with Ileana in English, and then the second half of the conversation we switch to Spanish (minute 41:00).
What if there was another way to feel about your debt? So often we hear about aggressive debt payoff strategies, while that totally works for some people, it’s not a one-size-fits all approach that works for everyone. In this episode, Ileana Cardona talks about how she’s come to terms with her student loan debt in a way that works for her and her family. We talk about the different emotional energetics behind the experience of debt, and how there are ways to embrace your debt, if that’s something you desire to do.
Ileana is a wife, mother, attorney, budget coach and financial educator from Puerto Rico. She created her page to provide financial literacy content en español to millennial women like herself. During the pandemic, she realized the importance of this content and decided to go for it. La Budgetera was born out of a desire to make personal finance content available to Spanish speaking women all over.
Ileana also talks about:

Navigating different money scripts with her husband
Working multiple jobs and managing money in her adolescence
Alternative approaches to debt
Helping her clients manage their money through budgeting

14. Money Dates

14. Money Dates

Money Dates have been the best way that I've found to reinforce new money identities. I went from someone who always said, "I'm bad at money," to someone who proved to myself that "I'm someone who takes good care of money." In the episode, I talk all about how Money Dates are an essential tool for you in making peace with your money.
This coming Sunday (2/27/22), I'll be hosting a free, virtual workshop to teach about Money Dates! During the workshop, I’ll teach you about how money dates are more than just a cute way to dress up an everyday task. There’s an actual link between creating safe spaces (money dates) and reducing money anxiety and trauma.

During the dates, we put in place some somatic practices, such as breathing techniques, and subconscious reprogramming, such as journaling, to help create new neural pathways around dealing with your finances.

This workshop is for you if:

You’re looking to have a lighter relationship with your finances.

You feel ready to pay more attention to your money in a way that doesn’t inflict more anxiety.

You’re ready to create nourishing rituals around things like looking at your bank account, your investments, and your spending.

You want to have more fun with money!

Here's the link to sign up.

13. Teachers and the Money Wound

In this episode, I talk with Maideli Garcia of My Daily Dinero about her experiences creating financial wellness content, her current transition out of the teaching industry, and healing her money story. You’ll hear how her experiences growing up as First Gen in the United States shaped her relationship with money as an adult. She discusses how she grappled with earning money early in her career as a teacher and how she’s come to understand new possibilities that lie ahead when it comes to making more money.
You’ll also hear in the introduction my personal beliefs about teaching and the money wound that I personally experienced choosing a notoriously low-paying profession. With so many educators seeking better, more lucrative work, I hope to shine a light on how leaving teaching is possible.
Maideli is a daughter of immigrants, First Gen Latina, and personal finance content creator. She created My Daily Dinero to bring inclusive and shame-free personal finance content to underrepresented communities.

12. Creating a Values-Based Budget

12. Creating a Values-Based Budget

In this episode I talk with Gillian Jakob Kieser about her experiences using a budget in a way that aligns with her values and desires. Gillian was modeled strong money habits and behaviors as a child, and she carried those healthy money patterns into adulthood. We discuss how she approaches money and money management in her marriage and how money is an important tool that she uses thoughtfully in her life.
You’ll also hear Gillian coach me through a money trigger that arose as we were discussing retirement savings. An old money wound, retirement savings still activates strong emotions of shame and guilt for me. Through exposing and embracing my own money triggers, I'm able to integrate them with compassion, which I hope provides a helpful model for others.
Gillian Jakob Kieser is a content strategist, writer, and advocate for creatives. She runs Beautiful Possibility, a community dedicated to exploring the creative process and helping writers and artists overcome blocks to build fulfilling creative lives.
In this interview, we also talk about:

11. My Money Story

11. My Money Story

You may have heard bits and pieces of my money story from my Instagram posts and from my other episodes of The Money Flirt Podcast, but in this very special interview, I tell the whole story of my relationship with money. In this episode, I’m sharing the interview I did with the Clever Girls Know podcast by Clever Girl Finance, and I’m re-publishing the episode with their permission. I talk about how I changed careers, increased my income by $80k+ within a few months, and how I still suffered with money despite the income increase. I share my story because I know I’m not alone in some of these struggles with money.

In this interview, I talk about:

How I increased my income by $86k but still struggled financially despite this increase. How I realized that just “cutting back” and budgeting wasn’t going to magically fix my money habits. The mindset work and inner child healing I had to do to strengthen my emotional intelligence with money. What my current relationship with money is like.

I also talk about my upcoming group program called Money Moon, a 5-week series of live calls to help you up level your relationship with money. In the group container, we’ll talk about what it means to be in relationship with money and how to cultivate healthier practices that support your financial wellness.

Money Moon Enrollment is NOW OPEN (Feb 2, 2022 through Feb 16, 2022)!
