Why We’re Giving $100 Tips This Holiday Season (And Why We Want You to Join Us)

As we’re out and about enjoying the holidays this year, we will more than likely interact with someone in the service industry. We may be served by a waitress, greeted by a host or checked out by a cashier.

These folks are hustling to pay their bills and hopefully, they will make enough to have a happy holiday with their family. Unfortunately, these positions are some of the lowest paying jobs in the US. The average waiter or waitress in the US makes around $20,000 per year.

While we can’t easily change the landscape of the service industry, we sure can give back to our neighbors who are working hard during the holidays.

As a small gesture of thanks and paying it forward, my wife and I are planning on giving two random $100 tips to someone in the service industry this year. Rockstar Finance has already joined in on the fun by supplying us with $100 for the effort! We’re hoping you will join us too.

We’re calling it #BigTipTuesday! Here’s how it’ll go in 5 easy and fun steps:

Why Date Night Is So Important in Marriage – with Martin Dasko and Kristen Manieri

The more I think about it, talk about it and research it, I feel like “date night” might be one of the most important investments we can make for our long-term family happiness.

I know it’s something that I’m personally working on. With two small kids and the responsibilities of life, date night sometimes takes a backseat.

That changes now!

On today’s show, we’re going to do three things:

  1. We’re going to hear from professional writer, podcaster and YouTuber, Martin Dasko. Since he focuses most of his content on personal finance and dating from a single guy’s perspective, he’s going to tell us married folks can spice up our marriages without going broke.
  2. After our chat with Martin, I’m going to interview Kristen Manieri, the founder of Do Good Date Night. Kristen started this organization to help couples have an opportunity to give back in their community while having fun with their spouses.
  3. After we get inspired by Kristen, I’m going to share my top 3 takeaways so you can start creating some epic date nights with your spouse.

Yes, we want to see their faces lit up with joy when they get that new toy they’ve always wanted, but we also want to make sure we’re not going into major credit card debt to get those smiles.

With the “perfect” gifts, you and your kids may both be smiling in December, but come March when you’re still paying down that debt … you won’t be smiling anymore.
