Ep 117: The Relationship Between Ambition And Money

What’s your definition of success? Did your mind go straight to career? Family? Both? This week we’re tackling this loaded question with Hana Schank and Elizabeth Wallace, authors of the new book: “The Ambition Decisions: What Women Know About Work, Family, and the Path to Building a Life.” We discuss all things women and ambition — the realities of work-life balance, motherhood, what “counts” as ambition, success and more. Also, see if you’re a “High-Achiever,” an “Opt-Outer” or a “Life-Flexer” and what each could mean for your career, finances, love life and overall happiness. In Mailbag, we answer your questions on the percentage of income to save and how to go about getting 401(k) dollars from past employers. Plus: Wedding season isn’t the only season that’s in our midst — hurricane season has also begun. In Thrive, we’re talking whether or not you should consider flood insurance.
