Need some help with how to manage, maintain, and multiply your money? There’s a podcast for that.
Brought to you by The Breakfast Club radio co-host Angela Yee, My Fab Finance’s Tonya Rapley, and Call Your Girlfriend podcast host Aminatou Sow, these three ladies are having a candid conversation devoted to helping women get their coins right. The name of their new podcast? Color Full Lives.
During the 2018 ESSENCE Festival panel, “Candid Finance Conversation with StateFarm”, Yee, Rapley, and Sow were honest about their financial journeys and shared the tips that they’ve learned along the way.

“I wanted to be able to empower myself and empower others through conversations likes these,” said Yee, who is also the owner of a Brooklyn juice bar and hosts her own podcast, Lip Service. “I used to worry about things like retirement and thinking I had to wait until I had a husband to buy a house. I was able to go ahead and become a homeowner on my own.”
Throughout the talk, a recurring lesson was to surround yourself people who are comfortable with having uncomfortable conversations about money.
“If money isn’t right then things don’t move. [Money] gives you that piece of mind and helps you to plan for future generations whether that’s your kids, nieces, nephews, god kids, neighbors, whoever,” Rapley shared.
The goal of Color Full Lives with Statefarm is to empower listeners with the blueprint for financial well-being.
“We’re just three women figuring it out just like you,” said Sow. “We’re wanting to keep ourselves accountable and stay accountable to each other, buy homes, pay off debt, learn how to invest.”
