No two moms are the same. But we all have at least two things in common.
First, we want to give our little people the best opportunities we can so they can grow up to be happy, successful, and safe (& move out of our basements.) Second, becoming a mom changed our relationship and experience with money, career, and wealth.
We all have questions.
“If I take time off after my baby is born, will I ever catch back up in my career?”
“How do I save for retirement when childcare is the cost of a college education? And speaking of college, how the heck are we supposed to pay for that?”
“Will I ever stop fighting with my spouse about money? Or get them to say more than three grumpy words about it?”
“Do I have the skills (and emotional energy) to start the business I can’t stop thinking about?”
“How do we spend less while still enjoying life?”
Sound a little too familiar?
You aren’t alone, mama. We all have money questions swirling around our heads.
The Mamas Talk Money Summit is your chance to get them answered.
The Mamas Talk Money Summit, hosted by Smart Money Mamas, is a 5-day virtual event with over 40 speakers to bring you content specifically designed to help moms feel more confident with money and reach their goals. We know that the challenges facing moms are unique and that financial resources can feel like they don’t understand the struggle or – worse – are talking down to us. That’s why we decided to bring you the best money and career advice, direct from experts who are also women and moms.
Whether you’re overwhelmed by money and don’t know where to start or are a financial rockstar who wants to connect with other moms working to reach their goals, this summit will provide you with the resources you need.
Over these 5 days, we’ll be bringing you speakers who will share frameworks for success while letting you in on their own journeys. We’ll be covering:
HOUSEHOLD FINANCES, BUDGETING, DEBT FREEDOM, MANAGING MONEY AS A COUPLE, MONEY MINDSET, INVESTING, RETIREMENT, ESTATE PLANNING, AFFORDING COLLEGE, CAREER ADVANCEMENT, ENTREPRENEURSHIP, RAISING FINANCIALLY SAVVY KIDS, AND SO MUCH MORE.
We’re completely obsessed with helping moms reduce money stress, find balance, and reach their financial goals. The Mamas Talk Money Summit is our effort to bring you the best insight available.

GET THE ANSWERS YOU CRAVE
Money is hard. You need this knowledge, mama. We know that quality advice on personal finance aren’t easy to come by – especially in a format that speaks to your unique needs. Stop wondering. Stop quietly searching Google or calling your mom and get into the (virtual) room with the experts. We’re ready to show you how to take your finances to the next level and ditch the uncertainty. We can’t wait to see you inside.
NO MAKEUP REQUIRED
Attendance is free and requires no makeup, bra, or pants to take part. #nojudgment You can attend the summit without finding someone to watch the kids, packing a suitcase, booking a hotel, taking time off of work or even getting dressed. It’s a dream scenario. (You can pinch yourself, it’s real.) We know that moms don’t always have the luxury of expensive retreats or conferences. So we’re bringing the magic right into your home.
FIND YOUR MAMA TRIBE
Mama, it’s time you had someone to talk to. If you’re like most moms, the number of people you feel comfortable talking to about money could be counted on one hand. We all need people in our lives who can say, “Yup, you’re not alone.” and “You’ve got this.” Being in the same community as amazing mamas who are also reaching for their big, scary goals, making mistakes, and picking themselves up will jump start your own success.

Absolutely! Registration is absolutely free – just enter your name and email – and you’ll gain access to all speaker videos for 48 hours after they are released, be able to interact with the speakers live in chat, join the Facebook group, download worksheets specific to each talk, and be eligible for daily giveaways.
If you’d like lifetime access to all videos and summit content, in addition to perks like curated notes, transcripts, and more, you can purchase an All-Access Pass!
Yes and no.
To avoid the inevitable technical difficulties of trying to stream over 40 talks live over five days, most videos will be pre-recorded. However, at the scheduled release time for each video, the speaker will be live in the chat box to interact with all attendees and answer questions.
Also, there will be two live sessions a day – a Lunch & Learn where we answer questions or dive deep on a topic with a guest and a Pajama Party where we wrap up our favorite moments and lessons from the day and announce giveaway winners.
All videos will be available for 48 hours after their release.
If you would like lifetime access to all videos, as well as some cool perks like transcripts, notes, & downloadable audio of the talks, there will be All-Access passes available for purchase.
Oh goodness, no! The only person you’ll get emails from after you sign up is me, Chelsea. That’s so you can get all the updates for the summit.
After the summit is over, you’ll continue to hear from me, but you can unsubscribe at any time.
As for the speakers, the only way your email address will be shared with them is if you opt-in for their freebie during their presentation. That way, you only hear from the people you really love.
This program is designed for moms and women preparing to become moms. It’s a place for all mamas to discuss how motherhood impacts our financial lives and discover new ways to thrive.
That said, anyone is welcome to attend. For women who aren’t moms, there will absolutely be helpful content surrounding gender gaps in money, career, and business. And we encourage any interested men to attend – the more you know about the hurdles and experiences faced by women, the better an ally you can be!
Unfortunately, we aren’t. This year, we have hand-selected all speakers to discuss important topics they are experts in and passionate about.
We are, however, still accepting affiliates to help us promote this incredible event! If you are interested in hearing more, contact us here.
And, you can always contact us to be considered as a speaker next year!
Well hey there, mama! I’m Chelsea, and I’m excited to be your MC for the Mamas Talk Money Summit! As the founder of Smart Money Mamas, mother to two adorable (and insane) little boys, and an ex-hedge fund investor, I have an absolute passion for helping moms feel like masters with their money.
I’ve always been a money nerd (nerd might be an understatement), but when I faced going back to a demanding career – as a breadwinning mom – with a baby boy at home and un-diagnosed postpartum depression, my relationship with money and career changed. I needed more flexibility. I needed my work to serve a greater purpose. And I needed to prioritize my family and my mental health.
My story isn’t uncommon. But I had the rare gift of having built a nest egg that gave me the stability I needed to make a change. And not enough women have that gift.
Maybe you want to get out of debt so every necessary purchase isn’t a mental strain. Maybe you want to create the security you need to leave a job or relationship that doesn’t serve you. Maybe you want to grow your financial savvy so your family is safe, no matter what happens.
Maybe you just want to go to Disney World.
Whatever your goal, it’s my mission to help you find your peace. To give you options.
I’ve carefully curated the Mamas Talk Money Summit to include only those experts who know what it’s like to manage money and career or business as a mom. Only women who’ve made their life’s work lifting others up.
These mamas are the real deal, each having direct experience in reducing money stress, striving for goals, and designing and living lives they love. And for the Mamas Talk Money Summit, they’re putting all their knowledge, love and understanding into actionable, fun strategies. Just for you.
See all the upcoming sessions from our amazing speakers so you don’t miss a thing!
We’re giving away over $15,000 in prizes to Mamas Talk Money – find out what’s on the list!

Your future is calling.
You’re an incredible, loving mom and you’ve got big dreams. Countries to travel to, career milestones to hit, opportunities to give your babies.
But you know that until you get your financial life in order, those things will remain out of reach.
Maybe you’ve tried to create a plan before but the craziness of life set you back where you started. Maybe you’re running full speed at financial freedom, but feeling like you’re the only one focused on big money goals.
Or maybe you’re just ready to feel confident that how you’re spending and investing will get you where you want to go.
Wherever you are, whatever your goals, the Mamas Talk Money Summit is for you. A place to learn about money in the unique ways it effects us as woman and moms, connect with a community of incredible mamas who understand, and jumpstart your journey towards the life you want.
We can’t wait to see you inside.
