Episode 43: How To Fund Your Startup Idea

Do you feel like your business idea is an impossible dream? It doesn’t have to be. This week, we sit down with Kathryn Finney, founder and managing director of digitalundivided, a social enterprise that supports women of color entrepreneurs. As one of the most respected voices in startups, innovation and tech, Finney shares her clear-cut advice for how to start and grow a burgeoning business. Then, Kelly and I answer your questions on how to calculate your risk tolerance when saving to buy a home or for retirement — and, freelancers, we discuss how to create a retirement savings plan of your own. And finally, don’t cringe, but it’s tax time. We have information you need to know for the 2017 filing season, why you should file ASAP and tips to help you do it. As always, we want to hear what you think. Please send us your questions and topics you want to learn more about — and share us with the women you love!
