The VantageScore Podcast

After finding herself in $20,000 of credit card debt after college, Yanely shares her tried and true practices on how she paid it off - which inspired her on a mission of financial literacy. Learn expert tips on budgeting, debt payment strategies, investing and managing your credit score.
Another 2-part series interviews Dr. Brad Klontz, founder of the Financial Psychology Institute® and a managing principal of Your Mental Wealth® Advisors. He was awarded the Innovative Practice Presidential Citation from the American Psychological Association for his application of psychological interventions to help people with money and wealth issues.
Brad’s episode shares strategies on how to recognize your “money script” behavior and better understand shame, depression, values, and stressors around money that may keep us from reaching our financial goals.
