Megan Gorman On Making Tax and Wealth Planning Cool

Since I opened 2017 with an interview regarding health, I thought we’d open 2018 with a topic we all love – money.

Today’s guest is Megan Gorman, the Founding Partner of Chequers Financial Management, a boutique high net worth tax and financial planning firm. Chequers ensures that tax strategy serves as the cornerstone of the financial planning process (which is unusual in the industry, along with having a female founder.) In many cases, Chequers clients have come to the firm because of its reputation for strategy and premier client service. Chequers not only handles corporate clients, but also artists, athletes and more.

Prior to founding Chequers Financial, Megan worked at Goldman Sachs and BNY Mellon Wealth Management, where she provided financial planning services to high net worth families, and also served in a fiduciary capacity on large family trusts.

Megan’s expertise has seen her quoted in publications from the Wall Street Journal to The Washington Post to CNN Money.

Documentary Director Samantha Rife On the Stigmas of Motherhood

Today we’re talking about an upcoming documentary and social impact campaign covering a topic you probably wouldn’t expect to be covered – motherhood.

I never knew this myself, but mothers experience discrimination in the US, from deep-rooted assumptions about social or gender roles, for breastfeeding in public, and for not having a perfect body again after childbirth. Many women, particularly stay-at-home moms, become demoralized, feel alienated, and lose their personhood. They often lose their chance to return to their jobs.  Often, people judge them immediately when they say they are a full-time mom, assuming that they aren’t hard-working, that they aren’t intelligent or that they aren’t contributing members of society. Yet, they are molding society’s greatest assets – the next generation.

My guest is the wonderful Samantha Rife, the Director and Executive Producer of the documentary film “Reclaim Motherhood”. She will share with us her mission behind this film and the associated campaign which will target corporate HR departments as well as middle schools, high schools and universities.  You will hear examples of the struggles that mothers often face at work, with the government, and in their communities. She also shares the importance of bridging the gap between people who choose to be parents and those who choose to be childless.

Samantha is also the founder of SJR Research and for over 25 years, she has worked as a writer and researcher, and provided support for large and small projects in a wide variety of fields including History, Genealogy, Information Technology, Education, Writing/Editing, Film and Media, Communications, Marketing, Public Health/Social Services, managed Healthcare, Visual Arts, and much more. Samantha is a mother of 2 children – Joshua and Cassandra. She lives in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, with her husband Jamie.

Natalie Vartanian On Owning Her Sexuality and Exploring Polyamory

Today I welcome a podcast colleague, friend, relationship advisor/coach and personal tarot interpreter Natalie Vartanian. After appearing on Natalie’s new podcast Taboo and Turn On, I wanted to return the favor and feature her as a guest on NOL. We threw around some possible topics to discuss, and we decided on a hot one for Natalie, i.e. owning your sexuality and giving yourself the freedom to explore it. Personally, exploring her sexuality has led her to polyamory, which she explains in the show.

We discuss what it means to own your sexuality, some myths associated with expressing it (especially as a woman), why polyamory is good for some people but not for others, and a lot more.

Natalie is a certified life coach, relationship expert, business strategist, writer, and speaker/teacher. Her mission is to inspire people to dream big and take the risks to have it all and live a turned on life. She has worked with women from across 5 continents to help them get the sex lives and the relationships they want, in addition to connecting to their passion work in the world and building business that make a difference in a way that feels fun, easy, and alive. Her work has been featured in elephant journal, YourTango, and Good Men Project. She is the host of the podcast, Taboo and Turn On, and previously co-hosted Sex the Podcast.
