We start off by discussing the wage gap for women and then get into a great conversation about finding success in the world of online business.

Mariko Briley grew up living in the great outdoors of Alaska and became a pilot who flew tourists around Mt. McKinley. 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. After making expensive mistakes in the birth and growth of their own business, Mariko is now choosing to control her quality of life and helping others do the same. She is currently working on a book with her husband about how to attract the right clients.

    • Starting out with a team of 20 employees
    • The big mistake: making big money, but not seeing profit because of the huge overhead
    • Making the changes needed to reduce the team and make their business highly profitable
    • Using automation and software to do as much as possible
    • The lessons learned from the mistake in generating a lot of money but not focusing on the profit side
    • The business debt they incurred and how their focus has changed into a “lean and mean” philosophy
    • The freeing knowledge that they have the resources to get where they want in business and live the life they want for their family
    • How they bought their dream house this year and are merging the business there with a separate building on the property

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.

Welcome to a special Mother’s Day Episode of ProfitBoss Radio!

I admire each of these ladies more than words can express, and I felt very honored to have the chance to talk about motherhood and money matters.

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!  


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. 

    We are building layers to the internet to support Bitcoin. 

    Trace believes Bitcoin is here to stay. 

    What you need to know about other cryptocurrencies.

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.

Her Money Matters Workbook

Apr 10, 2018

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. She is an Emmy award-winning producer, working on shows like Fox’s The Swan. All of these accomplishments are indeed impressive, but most of that work went on behind the scenes. 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! 


With so much experience and wisdom to share, Nely embodies what it means to be a ProfitBoss. You do not want to miss out on the practical tools and mindset shifts Nely is bringing to the table today.

Everyone loves an unlikely success story. We are often told that anything is possible and these success stories give us all home to chase our dreams. Still, we need to make money and pay the bills. Dreams just don’t feel very lucrative. Is it possible to turn your dreams into reality? 


Today’s guest embodies what it means to be an unlikely success. Cathy Heller didn’t come from much, had a little education, and no idea about how to make it in a career. It wasn’t likely that she would make it big in her career as a songwriter, but Cathy persevered. Using her creativity, Cathy figured out a way to market her skills by selling songs to Fortune 500 companies. Now, she has an incredibly profitable podcast, Don’t Keep Your Day Job, where I have been a guest. 


Today, I am turning the microphone on Cathy so that she can tell us how she found her unlikely success. Her biggest lesson for everyone is that, with a little ingenuity, we can turn almost any passion into a money-making enterprise. Cathy is going to share the scrappy actions and mindset shifts it took to make it in a competitive field. Never one to be content where she is, Cathy then turned her success into more opportunities to use her gifts. Now, Cathy represents other artists who want to license their music, teaches courses about licensing, and hosts a profitable podcast. 


That may sound like a lot, but Cathy’s unlikely success is about small steps in the right direction. It’s about never settling for less than she is worth, and you and I can take that advice right to the bank.
