What on Earth are Women Doing With Their Money? Imagine being able to talk about debt without stammering or blushing. It’s funny how an honest money discussion elicits a reaction akin to having ‘THE talk’ with parents. You know, that really cringey one you had when you were twelve. So, what’s the first step to normalising sticky subjects? Confront them head on and talk about them - lots. We’re thrilled to have tech consultant Jess Morley help us get the conversation rolling.

Help other women break free from the shackles of awkward money talk by joining the conversation. We're looking to interview entrepreneurs, freelancers, full-time mums, financial experts - women from all walks of life, really - for our Breaking the Taboo Series. Together, we can start getting real about personal finance.
