EP 129 | Profit Boss® Radio

Welcome to episode 129 of Profit Boss® Radio! In today’s episode, we are unpacking the complicated reasons that hold women back from advancing in their careers. From gender bias and sexism to fear and insecurity, we untangle all the messy roadblocks that stand in the way of women rising to success.

If you have ever felt held back in your career, faced limitations placed on you by others, or have felt you or your ideas have been dismissed because you’re a woman, be sure to tune into today’s episode. This is a can’t-miss show full of staggering statistics that point to the value women bring to companies and our natural abilities to assume and succeed in leadership positions.

Not only does my guest Linda Smith, Esq. reveal the ever prevalent gender stereotypes that still plague every industry, but she shares actionable and useful ways women can overcome these known barriers to advance their careers as far as they want. Linda believes that women should be able to choose how far they climb in their careers versus being limited by the corporate culture that persistently holds women back.

Get ready to feel empowered as we uncover how women can use their superior leadership skills to advance their careers and reach success.

She and her husband now run a multi-million dollar business teaching entrepreneurs how to find success. Mariko and Dustin are passionate about inspiring emerging entrepreneurs to reach their goals.

This week I'm speaking with Kelly, whose lax money habits from her early 20s landed her in a stressful 25-year cycle of debt and uncertainty. Now, having sought help to finally improve her understanding of money and establish healthy spending and saving, she's debt-free.

Denise Duffield-Thomas is a money mindset mentor for the new generation of female entrepreneurs. Denise is committed to changing the way women think about wealth and money. Instead of losing belief or being intimidated, she inspires women to build their own definition of wealth.

One thing you’ll have to come to grips with is that everyone has money blocks. We tell ourselves stories about why we shouldn’t worry about money or pass the responsibility off to someone else. Maybe subpar math skills or preconceived ideas about gender roles are holding you back. Regardless, the time to break through your personal blocks is RIGHT NOW!

Denise obliterates money blocks, such as, “I can’t have love AND money,” or “I can’t have a baby AND money.” Often, stories and memories from our past serve as anchors and are the root of most problems. She is well-equipped to help others with this because she has built a valuable business and overcome these blocks herself. Listen and learn!

At some point in your career, you are going to hear the word, “No.” Rejection is unpleasant at best and can be crushing at its worst. What can we do to build up resilience to rejection, and allow ourselves to continue putting ourselves out there for the sake of our business? My guest today, Alex Grodnik, is going to share how he’s been doing it for the past year as an entrepreneur. Alex is a credible, smart, and academically successful guy. I am excited to share his story with you. 


Alex didn’t start out wanting to start and grow his own business. From a very young age, Alex aspired to be an Investment Banker. He started out his career as an Analyst at JP Morgan but quickly found that the big Investment Banking job he always wanted was not for him. Alex then made the brave decision to pivot and look into developing his own business, even though the thought of failure nearly stopped him. Alex’ story will teach us about choosing a different path, and many of Alex’s life choices fall in line with what I want for us and our financial lives. 


If anyone is scared to leave the comfortable job to venture out and create something new, you need to hear this interview. Alex has wisdom that will empower and encourage you to make that choice and change your life.

    Alex tells us the story of why he started out in investment banking, and what it was like to work as an analyst. 

    What investment bankers actually do. 

    How Alex made the shift into entrepreneurship through a podcast business. 

    Alex shares what it is like to have a startup company.

    You need to not be afraid to ask for what you want. 

    Be creative in order to turn a “No” into a “Yes.”

  • Strong women create strong women. 
  • Courtney shares how taking care of women through her business and taking care of her son go hand in hand. 
  • Why Courtney dances with her son every day.

We’ve had plenty of questions rolling in from the ProfitBoss community, so now is a perfect opportunity to host another installment of #AskHillary! I’ll give my best thoughts on handling our parents’ money mindset, understanding the DOW Jones index, and several specific tax and retirement savings options. I will also tackle how to make the most of student loans, and how to save for life’s big adventures.  


Since we have adventure on our minds, I think now is a perfect opportunity to talk about Travel Rewards. With U.S. airlines expected to carry more than 600 million passengers on domestic flights this year and credit card debt levels exploding, we can expect airfare savings to be increasingly important in the months ahead.


Jill Gonzales is going to fill us in on how to make smart decisions about choosing a frequent flyer program. You will learn the difference between a frequent flyer program and a rewards credit card, and then understand just how the WalletHub study was done. There is a lot of useful information in this episode, so be prepared to take notes!

What You Will Learn in This Episode:
To help travelers make the best decisions for their wallets, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2018’s Best Frequent Flyer Programs, which ranks the 10 largest domestic airlines based on 23 key metrics, ranging from the value of a point/mile to blackout dates for rewards flights. WalletHub’s report also features a custom calculator that allows users to personalize the results based on their own budgets. You can find a few highlights from those results below.


  • Delta SkyMiles is the best frequent flyer program for the third straight year.
  • The average airline rewards program gives frequent flyers 12% off their airline spending. And they’re all free to join. 
  • Hawaiian Airlines offers the most rewards value to frequent flyers ($19.95 per $100 spent), with Alaska Airlines coming in a close second ($19.87 per $100 spent).
  • Four of the 10 largest airlines are offering more rewards in 2018 than in 2017, sweetening the pot by an average of 20%.
  • Delta Air Lines and JetBlue Airways are the only two major airlines whose miles do not expire because of inactivity.
  • The Frontier Airlines Credit Card and the Lufthansa Credit Card are 2018’s best airline credit cards, according to WalletHub’s editors.

The Seven Stages of Money Maturity 


Apr 24, 2018

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!
