You Have the Power to Transform Financial Systems?
When we think about changes that are needed in our world, I often think about the financial systems that are not set up to truly support and sustain all humans. Here is an area ripe for transformation. And like many of our other conversations on this show, we look at the personal within the context of the culture and systems. Regardless of your financial situation, how financially literate are you? Do you know how the financial systems work, do you know what your money is doing? Join me as I speak with Angela Barbash, founder of Reconsider, an impact economy research and development firm, co-founder of Revalue, a registered investment advisory firm and she co-launched the Detroit Regional Chapter of the Social Enterprise Alliance.

Navigating the Big Ones
Mara and guest Cal Loo of Intentional Legacies explore ways to navigate life’s biggest transitions with intention and grace. Some transitions are a natural part of the lifespan like birth, puberty and death. Others are cultural, and made important by our society or spiritual community, such as marriage, graduation, coming of age, spiritual or religious initiation, and even endings like divorce. All of these transitions, when marked intentionally, can help ease the way into releasing a previous stage, and preparing for the new roles, identity, or responsibilities that come with the new stage. It is especially powerful if these transitions can be marked in community, strengthening our ties and sense of belonging. We will discuss why rites of passage are especially relevant and important in today’s world and not just hold-over traditions from the long past. Cal will also share some of his personal journey in coming to his work of helping people traverse these life transitions.
