Informed Choice Radio Personal Finance Podcast

Mar 15, 2017

My guest on the podcast today is Jo Thresher, author of What’s Your Excuse for Not Being Better With Money?.

Jo is an award-winning financial services professional with almost 30 years’ experience, a trained money coach with a true understanding of the difference between what people want and what typical financial services businesses tell people.

Jo’s system of challenges and workshops are tried and tested to gently push people forward to being in a better financial place without being boring or selling anybody anything.

Her business is Better with Money, which was established to reduce financial misery and confusion in the UK.

They aim to bring money matters to life in an accessible and interesting way, delivered in the workplace to employees helping them think clearly about money so they are less stressed.

Better with Money help employees plan earlier for life’s ups and downs and the knowledge and tools gained from the workshops can reduce financial unhappiness, increasing people’s engagement with life, their career and workplace benefits.

In today’s episode of Informed Choice Radio, I speak to Jo about the benefits of financial education, whether learning about personal finances can be fun, how improved financial education can reduce workplace stress, and much more.

Welcome to Better With Money with Jo Thresher, in episode 187 of Informed Choice Radio.

Some questions I ask:

-What prompted you to start your new venture, Better With Money?

-What are some of the benefits of financial education in the workplace?

-Do you think learning about personal finance can be fun too? Should it be fun, or should it be a really serious subject?

-How can employers help to protect their employee's health from this impact of financial stress?

-Your new book is called What's Your Excuse For Not Being Better With Money? Can you tell us some of the reasons?

-Why did you write the book? What was the motivation behind it?
