Welcome back everyone! It is definitely a crazy time that we are living in and crazy things are happening in the financial world too. So, I decided to have my good friend Sarah-Catherine Gutierrez back on the show. Just in case you have not heard of her before, here is her bio:

Sarah Catherine Gutierrez is a speaker, writer and owner of a financial planning company, called Aptus Financial. She is passionate about demystifying the financial world to women so that they can focus on the most important thing we need to do: save money for our future selves. SC also runs a blog for women and finance called, "LadySplainingMoney." SC was a featured speaker at the recent WCI conference. She lives a beautifully simple life under quarantine in Little Rock, Arkansas. 

In this episode, you will learn:

  • How the pandemic uncertainty is affecting the financial world.
