Money Career & Motherhood Podcast

Jul 14, 2020

As a parent, it’s hard to watch your child struggle in school. Many spend thousands of dollars through the years to support a student, but it may not be addressing the root cause of the difficulty. In this episode I’m talking with Dr. Karen Wilson about what an assessment can do for your struggling student, to not only help them in school today but to build their foundation for learning and success in the future. Listen in to learn:

  • Is it causing my child enough of an issue that it’s causing them a hard time in a learning environment?
  • The one question you need to ask yourself to decide if your student needs an assessment
  • Why early intervention is so important for a struggling student
  • What executive functioning is and why is it so important to a student’s success
  • How early reading challenges affect learning as a child grows

About the Host:

Janice Scholl has spent her entire career talking about money and business. Through her time as a commercial banker, consultant and mentor to budding entrepreneurs, she helped clients create solid business and financial strategies to help propel their business to success. While working with aspiring female entrepreneurs, Janice noticed that the same four themes kept repeating:

  • Many women are uncomfortable with finance, both in their business and in their personal life.
  • Women want access to more women mentors and advisors.
  • Women often start businesses because they feel the corporate world doesn’t fit their lifestyle. Few are motivated by purely financial reasons.
  • Mothers didn’t want money to drive their family decisions.

From these themes, The Money, Career, & Motherhood Podcast was born. Now Janice spends her time helping mothers gain confidence and understanding about money, career, and business topics as they relate to motherhood and family – the way many women actually think about money. Janice loves helping mothers implement business and financial strategies within their families to help each family member thrive.
