A Hippy in a capitalist’s body on a mission to democratise finance – interview with Holly Mackay

In this episode I chat to Holly Mackay, finance and investment expert, and founder and Managing Director of Boring Money. She talks about her mission to democratise finance and the opportunity costs of being an entrepreneur and mother to two young children.

Our conversation covers her love for language and desire to banish financial gobbledygook. The sacrifices of an entrepreneur. How covid has been a ‘feast or famine’ for many. Her crush on Mark Carney and the risk of not thinking sustainably when investing. And we philosophise around the purpose of money, what really matters and how emotions trump rational thinking when making lifestyle decisions.

Finally Holly shares her best money purchase for around £30 (or in Holly’s case a tad more!) and her Money Pearls of Wisdom.

Sit back, grab yourself an espresso (or drink of your choice!) and enjoy the conversation.
