Whatever your stance on Bitcoin might be, it is difficult to deny that it is changing the way we think about finances. Bitcoin is opening up a new standard of value for currency: protection. Today, I have my guest, Trace Mayer, on the show to give us some more detailed information about Bitcoin and why it is so important to have a working knowledge of cryptocurrency. 


Trace isn’t on a mission to sell you something; he is on a mission to inform the world about the exciting new frontier that is digital currency. His podcast, Bitcoin Knowledge is all about how digital currencies can bring you monetary sovereignty and security. I was surprised to find in this interview that we weren’t actually talking about Bitcoin the whole time. Instead, we had a conversation about property rights, autonomy, and activism. 


Trace is equipping ordinary people to take even more control over their finances by investing in something protected and supported. Generally, people have gaps in their knowledge around Bitcoin, and that can make investing a bit risky. Trace is going to spell out the risks and benefits of Bitcoin in a way that is easy enough for even a novice to understand. We certainly have much to learn from Trace, and I am excited to continue the Bitcoin conversation in the future!  


What You Will Learn in This Episode

    Understand what it means to be a “digital native.” 

    Let’s focus on the technical aspects of Bitcoin. 

    The value of monetary sovereignty. 

    We can understand Bitcoin better when we understand strong property rights. 

    Why the inflation of currency is such an important topic. 

    Trace shares some of the biggest moments in financial activism.

Profit Boss®  radio is all about connecting you to women who are empowering other women to have confidence in their finances. I cannot think of anyone who embodies that spirit like Jen Hemphill. Jen is a bilingual Latina military wife and mama who knows there’s a lot more to financial freedom than spending less and saving more. After experiencing years of the numbers sliding sideways, even though she and her husband were doing “all the right things,” Jen went on a journey to uncover some untraditional ways to empower herself financially. The result is the amazing Her Money Matters Podcast and now a brand new book! 


Her Money Matters: The Missing Truths from Traditional Money Advice is a go-to guide for women with burning questions about money. It is a book about money specifically designed with women in mind, and Jen has so much wisdom to share with us about money mindset. I am not just excited to have Jen on the show to talk about the content of her book, but also the book-writing process. Publishing is such a mystery to many of us, so Jen is going to explain just what it takes to self-publish. 


If you are interested in money mindset and the uncharted territory many of our money mentors have not dared to go, Jen is your lady! She is proof that when women take charge of their finances, good things happen. 


What you will learn in this episode: 

    Jen shares with us her unique message about money. 

    Jen’s role as a military spouse led her to want to create the podcast platform and a career that offered flexibility. 

    The services that Jen offers for finance coaching. 

    Everybody writes a book, but Jen decided to take advantage of the opportunity. 

    Why Jen parted ways with her traditional publisher, and how the hybrid approach was right for her. 

    A day in the life of book launching author! 

    What makes up a launch team. 

    What is missing from traditional money advice? 

    Since Jen had her “Aha Moment,” Jen has learned so many lessons about money. 

    We often forget to acknowledge what we are doing well. 

    There are different stages of budgeting. 

    Your money mindset takes up 60%. 

    Jen shares all about self-care. 

    Let’s talk about Negotiating! 

    Get clear about your Dream Budget.

With hard work, a healthy money mindset, and the sheer force of determination, you can overcome insurmountable odds and find success. This is exactly the attitude of my guest, Nely Galan. Nely is a Latina media dynamo! As an immigrant with limited work experience, Nely worked hard to put herself through school and then rise through the ranks to become the media mogul she is today! Nely was the first female president of Telemundo, and she has produced over 600 episodes of television in both English and Spanish.

I am excited for you to hear why Nely is stepping onstage to become an advocate for women’s empowerment. 


Nely’s new book, Self Made, chronicles her journey in the media business as she started from nothing. Now, Nely wants to show women across the globe that we are capable of more than our society tells us we are. When women earn more and advance in their careers, our culture flourishes. Nely is spearheading efforts to educate, empower, and mobilize women from all nationalities and backgrounds to begin making waves in their industry. Today, Nely will share some of her best tips and techniques for starting over and becoming self-made. Make sure you listen to find out how to get resources for women-owned businesses right in your mailbox!
