I'm back! Sorry about that. Last two months have been doozies for a multitude of reasons. I fell off the podcast bandwagon there for a bit. Luckily, I carved out some time this evening to sit down and share some thoughts about the high cost of wealth. In short, wealth is accessible, but few achieve it. Why? Because of what the ticket to wealth costs...
Today's podcast is a special one for me - I sit down and talk with my cousin Nate, who started his financial journey at the age of 18 by opening up a Roth IRA. He talks about how he was able to put savings first, even in college, and max out his Roth every year since he opened it. Now, he balances the needs of his financial future with living a fulfilling life today. Be sure to stick with the episode all the way to the end; there are some gems of insight in the last 5 minutes.
Today, I sat down with Colleen, owner of Silver Bean Events, a wedding and event planner in Metro Detroit. At 26 years old, she has already amassed a net worth of $60,000, is setting goals and teaching herself about investing and personal finance. We talk today about how she got there and I answer several of her questions at the end of the show.
I just came back from a week in California, climbing in Yosemite and sipping wine in Napa. It was amazing. I had a special moment where I felt in complete harmony, living my best life. Today's podcast is about that moment and what you can do to live your best life.
It has been a while since I have had time to podcast. (You can blame my photography schedule.) Anyway, I gave a speech the other day to a group of industry professionals and it was interesting to see where we all were in our financial journey. One thing became clear though: money truths are applicable at all ages. The truth behind getting wealthy is applicable at any age and can be implemented at any age. On today's podcast, I recap the 4 Rules of Money and what steps you can take to implement them.
On today's episode, I talk to Angjela about her current financial state and what decisions she should make. She recently graduated graduate school with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and zero student loan debt. She accepted a job working for Southwest Airlines but doesn't know what her next financial step should be. Luckily, we were able to create a plan before she got her first paycheck, so she can build her life and career around financial stability.
Michael Tindall joined the podcast again to talk about the basics of personal finance. This is a great place to start if you are looking to learn more about your first steps in managing your money.
