About our Guests:

Megan Lathrop is Co-Creator of the Money Coaching Program at Capital One and a Certified Money Coach. Her long-term partnerships with Senior VPs at major banks had her managing millions in client assets, but she also found herself managing her client’s fears, greed and negative beliefs around money. This realization led Megan to develop a more holistic practice to help people connect to their money.


Phillip LaDon Phillips Jr. is an American singer and songwriter who won the eleventh season of American Idol on May 23, 2012. His coronation song, “Home,” became the all time best selling song from American Idol.

Episode Summary:

Megan Lathrop and Phil Phillips drive home the importance and power of active listening while relating it to achieving dreams and wealth outside of money. As Patrice puts it, you have to be willing to listen to that still inside voice as your compass and your path to overall life abundance.



  • According to the Capital One Listen In Survey, 1 in 5 americans can’t remember the last time someone was completely focused on listening to them personally or professionally.
  • More than half (51%) feel they don’t often experience active listening from their friends, family members or colleagues.
  • There is a difference between hearing and listening.
  • True power comes from active listening.
  • Listening to your still small voice is a super power
  • Everyone is on a financial journey and, in return, everyone’s story deserves to be listened to.
  • Whether it’s about how you felt like you weren’t being heard, how you needed to listen to yourself or a time when you needed to listen to others, that experience likely impacted your purpose, your passions or your financial journey.
