Today on The Lively Show we are getting proactive with our money!

I’m talking with Mary Beth Storjohann, of Workable Wealth, about how we can best use our money in our 20′s, 30′s, and 40′s.

Mary Beth is a financial coach providing accountability to her clients, and has been featured in many major news outlets including The Wall Street JournalForbes, NBC, and MSN Money.

In the show, we discuss how to prepare financially for big life transitions like planning a wedding, buying a home, having a baby, or being self-employed full-time.

Plus, Mary Beth shares her advice for couples who have merged (or not merged) their finances.

    My name is Doreen Zeller a citizen of USA. i have been scammed by 22
    different Internet international lender, they all promise to give me a
    loan after making me pay several fees which yield nothing and amounted
    to no positive result. i lost my hard earn money and it was a total of
    18930 USD. One day as i was browsing through the internet with tears on
    my eye i came across a testimony of man who was also scammed and
    eventually got linked to a legit loan company called Morris and Company
    Trust Fund Limited where he finally got his loan, so i decided to
    contact the same loan company and then told them my story on how i have
    been scammed by 22 different lenders who did nothing but to course me
    more pain. I explain to the company by mail and all they told me was to
    cry no more because i will get my loan in their company and also i have
    made the right choice of contacting them. i filled the loan application
    form and proceeded with all that was requested of me and here i am today
    happy because Morris and Company Trust Fund Limited HAS GIVEN ME A
    LOAN so i made a vow to my self that i will keep testifying on the
    internet on how i got my loan. Do you need a loan urgently kindly and
    quickly contact Morris and Company Trust Fund Limited now for your loan
