This week is Credit Education Week, which is why I don’t just have one, but I’ve got two podcast episodes to share with you! Yesterday, I had Richard Moxley on the show to talk about how to win the credit game (or how to understand and be good at managing credit). For today’s episode, I’m talking to Jay Acharya, Vice President of Card Partnerships and Customer Management at Capital One, because Capital One is the sponsor of Credit Education Week, as well as my upcoming Millennial Money Meetup next week!

Every year, there’s a different theme for Credit Education Week. Last year, as you may remember, I had Patrick Ens from Capital One to talk about the theme last year-money mindfulness. This year the theme is #MyMoneyVision, which just means on top of being mindful with your money, it’s important to have a vision for your money.

Just like with anything in life, we won’t change any of our habits without a good reason for doing so. We won’t just start working out because we know we should for our health. We need a clear goal to work towards. I give presentations all the time about how to manage your money better, but I always try to emphasize that nothing I share about how to make a budget or how to pay off your debt will mean anything to you unless you set some strong financial goals.

So I hope you take this opportunity during Credit Education Week to learn more about responsible credit use and to set some financial goals. It’s never to late and you don’t have to wait until the start of the next year. The best time to set a new goal is as soon as possible.

I think we can all agree, the world of credit and credit scores can sometimes feel like a bit of a mystery. That’s why I’ve got credit expert and author of The Credit Game Richard Moxley on the show to finally make sense of things for all of us.

Now, part of the reason there’s a lot of mystery in the credit industry is because the two credit bureaus in Canada, Equifax and TransUnion, aren’t completely transparent and like to keep private a lot of information surrounding how they score consumers when it comes to credit.

Luckily, Richard has taken it upon himself to try to find out some of their hidden secrets and test things out so he can help consumers like you and me, and of course share everything he knows in his latest book The Credit Game.

Money and mental health, have you ever wondered if there is a connection? Because there absolutely is. And surprisingly, even though this is something I’ve known for a while, and even experienced in my personal life, I’ve never had anyone on the podcast to talk about it with me.

Luckily, I know people. Like Melanie Lockert, who was on episode 21 of the podcast all the way back in 2015. A lot has happened since we recorded that episode. She published a book called Dear Debt, moved from Portland to L.A., and founded a women’s financial literacy event called Lola Retreat. She’s also become very well known as not only a debt expert, but also a money and mental health advocate.

And that’s what we’re talking about on the show, hopefully to shed some light on a topic not many people are talking about. If you or someone you know is struggling with financial issues, mental health issues, or both, here are some resources we mentioned on the show that you may want to look into for help:
