Ep 19: How to make a decision when all your options suck
Play • 48 min

Every mother out there right now is trying to make decisions when all of the options on the table are less than ideal between home, work, and school. In this episode, I talk with my friend and teacher Sarah Baxter about how she used a decision matrix to plan her course of action when her career and the educational needs of her son came into direct conflict due to COVID-19.

Sarah and I talk about the importance of moving beyond “what if” and into “what then” in planning how to approach less than ideal scenarios in an incredibly uncertain future, and how drawing her line in the sand on what she was willing to do really empowered her to move forward.

 

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 don’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.
