Overcoming anxiety around money, with Otegha Uwagba

Season 1

Otegha Uwagba is a writer, speaker, and consultant. Her debut book, Little Black Book, made The Sunday Times bestseller list, and she’s just published her third book, We Need To Talk About Money — a personal and candid memoir exploring her relationship with money.


We Need To Talk About Money was born out of a lack of cultural transparency around finances. It follows Otegha’s process in uncovering her deep-rooted beliefs and patterns around money and discusses how she has overcome financial anxiety. 


Today on The Wallet: 


1/ Otegha shares her early experiences with money, what money means to her, and explains how we can all begin a journey of introspection to better understand our own attitudes towards money.


2/ We discuss the role privilege plays in the workplace, and how the culture of ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ is detrimental to everyone, but especially affects women, people of colour and minorities when negotiating salaries and fees.


3/ We look at how Otegha’s relationship with money has evolved over time, and how you can learn to enjoy what you earn when you’re prone to worrying about money.
