This month I am totally thrilled to bring you my Comfortable in Your Own Skin Podcast series. I am always excited to share it with the Queercents community, but this month even moreso because the topic is money and finance. My guest is Stacy Francis of Francis Financial. I first met Stacy six years ago at a coaching seminar and we’ve been in touch ever since.

Stacy is a certified financial planner, a nationally recognized media expert, speaker and author of the upcoming book The New Formula for Financial Success: Bounce Back and Gain Control Over Your Financial Future! Her firm, Francis Financial, Inc. is an independent, fee-only firm that provides comprehensive financial planning services. Stacy is also the founder of Savvy Ladies, a 20,000-plus non-profit educational organization established to empower women to take control of their finances and achieve more rich and rewarding lives. While you can read the full bio on my podcast post, the abridged version is that Stacy has appeared as a nationally recognized expert in all the big venues CNBC, CNN, Nightly Business Report, NPR, The Today Show… and has been quoted in some publications I’m sure you’ll recognize like Business Week, CNN, Entrepreneur, Forbes, Money Magazine, New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today

You get the picture — she knows money and finance. What is, in my opinion her greatest asset is that she is a woman of great integrity, truly genuine, and down-to-earth. Stacy knows people and as I’ve written about over and over it is money mindset and the person more than any financial tool that is at the crux of financial success.

Do yourself a favor and take the time to listen to this podcast.  I am grateful I had the chance to do it and you’re guaranteed to be inspired and learn something new (I know I sure did).
