First there was the glass ceiling. Then came the “She-cession,” or the economic downturn arising from the COVID-19 that hurt women more than men. In our “On the Money” video interview with HerMoney CEO Jean Chatzky, hear why she’s made it her life mission to help women accomplish their financial goals (0:59).

Chatzky says it is important for women to understand that women must actually do better than men with their financial goals because of the gender pay gap and longer longevity, among other factors, (7:29). Some financial goals can be handled alone. But she notes there are many ways to get good financial advice beyond great websites including a variety of financial professionals, some of whom can be contacted over the telephone or consulted in-person (12:16). Finally, Jean discusses her latest book titled “Women with Money: The Judgment-Free Guide to Creating the Joyful, Less Stressed, Purposeful (and, Yes, Rich) Life You Deserve” (14:33).

Our goal with the “On the Money” series is to help everyone achieve their financial goals. That means YOU! Drop us a line at and let us know what you’d like to hear about. For more “On the Money” interviews, subscribe to Bankrate’s YouTube channel.
