Are you facing challenges when it comes to managing your finances? Struggling financially can be isolating, especially if we are embarrassed to talk about it. Meet the new hosts of Wallet Watch and take a trip down the road of our financial pasts.

Returning host Davante Montgomery explains that the hosts of the podcast live by trial and error, just like everyone else. “We have just been able to go through life and learn some different methods that have really worked for us on how to really navigate money.”

During the episode, the hosts share their insights with the hopes of inspiring listeners to explore new practices when handling their finances. Joining as a new host, I admit that reviewing my budget frequently helps me to stay on track with my financial goals. “The more we see that total amount of credit card debt or student loan debt, it kind of puts us in our place to remind us of those goals we have.”

The intention of the episode is to remind listeners they are not alone in their struggles and to motivate them to have money-related conversations as a way to learn from others. New host Amanda Conn agrees these talks can have life-changing impacts and should become a new norm. “I think it’s powerful to hear people’s stories, and I think that more stories should be shared. We shouldn’t be afraid to talk about these things because you can learn about what other people are doing when you do have these conversations.”
