I am loving this podcast!

If you’ve ever Googled, ‘how to get wealthy’ and sat bug-eyed and confused in front of your computer, it’s okay…you’re not alone. And that’s why I am loving this podcast by Gen Frost of @therealitycheque who takes all those adulting money topics like finances, insurance and shares, and puts them in a language that makes sense. If you listen closely you will even learn what Tinder and the share market have in common. πŸ’•

Infectious enthusiasm!

Gen eases us into β€œeveryday” financial concepts that can escape us and gives practical advice to make us more financially literate and empowered. I’m 33, self-employed and looking to buy my first home in the next few years. Gen is not only giving me the tools to take charge of this project but is making me feel excited to work towards achieving this goal. Highly recommend!

Your Host

Gen Frost

Hi everyone! My name is Gen and I’m the Founder and host of The Reality Cheque. I’m also the wife to a wonderful, home-cook extraordinaire, Fixed-Income loving English sportsmad husband and mum to two incredible little girls who keep me insanely busy and chockers full of love (with a healthy wine habit!).

Although an entire career in Finance, my own journey hasn’t been a smooth one. I have made bad financial decisions, and some really good ones. We have had financial highs and lows that have been completely out of our control. But through this, I’ve picked up some really great lessons and habits.

I am so passionate about talking to people of all ages and all backgrounds, to help educate them to feel confident in making good financial decisions. Too many of us have sleepless nights, worrying about money. Where is it all going? How do I make more? How do I make the money I have, work for me? Can I get a better deal? It’s time to take action guys. It is your time for financial happiness.
