Redefining Gender Roles: How Women Breadwinners Navigate Marriage & Family with Jessica Hurley

In this episode of Wealth Within Reach, I sit down with Jessica Hurley, the Founder of EPYC Media and host of the Rich In Real Life podcast for an insightful discussion on the challenges and triumphs of being the sole female breadwinner.

We explore how Jessica navigates relationships, marriage, and the journey of building wealth while confronting traditional gender roles and societal expectations placed on women. Our discussion also dives deep into the importance of communication, mutual respect, and emotional maturity in relationships.

Learn more as Jessica and I exchange valuable insights and perspectives on redefining success and partnerships. Tune in!


  • On navigating relationships, marriage, and building wealth
  • Gender roles and expectations of women
  • How Erika realized she’s not at her fullest potential
  • On balancing work and family responsibilities
  • How women's financial independence affects their relationships
  • The importance of communication and mutual respect
  • The pivotal role of emotional maturity in relationships
  • The need for commitment and equality in marriage
  • The importance of valuing men beyond their income


“There's a different thought process for women to consider. There are many of us — either we can do it easily or we truly want to do it — versus the pressure that comes with a lot of women feeling like they have to do it.” – Jessica Hurley

“What we want from men is to see that we're so much more than a body, a number, and a mother. We're more. Look at us — we're capable of so much more.”  – Jessica Hurley
