Episode 8 of the 10thousandgirl podcast covers the topics of relationships, finance and money. These can be occasionally sensitive, but very important aspects in a serious relationship. Today’s guest is Larissa Zimmerman of National Financial Fitness and she shares with us some awesome nuggets of information!
We discuss subjects covering financial fitness, compound interest, health, BFAs (Binding Financial Agreements), self worth versus net worth, how to tackle discussions around sensitive topics, STDs (Sexually Transmitted Debt) and sex, money and communication (yes, there is sex-related talk included so listen at your discretion!).

Born dead, Larissa is now described as having been hit by lightning and retained the energy, the Energiser Bunny and a Wild Woman. She just believes her energy comes from working out what’s important in life and knowing how to manage the mundane necessities. Coming from a broken home and buying her first property at 21, at age 30 Larissa chose to work two days per week.
Now, with much life experience, Larissa is the Director of National Financial Fitness (the Barry Humphries version of financial literacy) and Your Money Mistress (the Dame Edna version). Her professional yet humorous delivery of sometimes sensitive issues has her frequently requested to deliver training. She has personally trained thousands of people, from primary school age to seniors. Twice selected to represent the Australian Army overseas, as well as Rotary International, Larissa is well versed to relate with all ages across many cultures.
An international speaker and author, Larissa has a Diploma in Financial Services in the stream of Consumer Education, possibly being the only Australian to study this stream. She has worked with Federal, State and Local Government agencies, private and community organisations, as well as numerous high schools and small business owners.
Her passions include creating her own future, seeing the funny side to life, waking people up to live their dreams, riding her motorbike, dancing, trying almost anything new, anything to do with chocolate, travelling and finding a way to do all these at once. Between her radio shows and developing an eco friendly home, she looks forward to being your entertainment!
