Around 40% have credit card debt. And 1/3 of Americans have saved $0 for retirement.
If we want our kids to survive these financial trip hazards and truly thrive, we need to start their financial education early. Our guest today, Liz Frazier, is a leader in the financial literacy movement and she’s helping parents teach their young children about money as soon as possible.
After 15 years of working as an event marketing professional, I’ve decided that I’m ready for a new chapter in my life.
The companies I’ve had the pleasure of working with have treated me well, given my family benefits and paid me generously. I sincerely appreciate the opportunities I’ve been given. It’s just time for me to follow a new calling.
A lot of us are hard-charging employees, side hustlers, or business owners who are looking to grow, get that promotion, or just make more money. But we can’t forget the most important people in our lives: our spouses and our children.
Today, we’re going to talk about how we can practice putting family first and how it’ll help us be even more successful in our financial lives.
Jon Vroman is my guest today. He’s married to his wife Tatyana and he’s a father to two energetic and playful boys, Tiger and Ocean, and they live in Austin, Texas.
Jon is a bestselling author and the founder of a global network of men at Front Row Dads. They believe in being family men with businesses, not businessmen with families.
Sometimes, hustling to make more money is not the answer.
Today, Andy talks to Jacob and Michelle Wade, who recently took a “year off” with their family of five. Jacob is a former sales professional and the blogger behind iHeartBudgets and Michelle is a stay at home Mom raising and road schooling their three children.
They sold their home and all of their possessions and hit the road in an RV in the summer of 2018.
Our guests will be telling us why they took the leap and left their daily grind, how they planned their sabbatical and how they’re educating their children on the road.
Our first question of the month comes in from Christie from Cincinnati:
I love the podcast. I have two questions.
How long have you been on Dave Ramsey’s Baby Step 7?
We are on Baby Step 7 with 1 paid-for rental. We are considering selling the rental property and just investing in a mutual fund instead.
I know you keep talking about buying a rental, but after 8-10 years we are finding it really isn’t making as much money as we think the stock market could. And we won’t have to worry about tenants calling with a problem.
The FIRE movement (Financial Independence, Retire Early), has become a wildly popular concept over the last decade, but it’s also become wildly controversial.
Today, Andy talks with Lisa Harrison, the writer and podcast host behind Mad Money Monster. She’s had her story featured on major media outlets like Yahoo Finance, MarketWatch, and Forbes. She started off in love with the FIRE movement and idea of early retirement but then had a change of heart.
We’ll be diving into how she discovered FIRE, what changes she made to her lifestyle and what caused her to abandon the idea of early retirement altogether.
In today’s episode, Andy chats with Damian Dunn about how to save for our children’s future.
Damian is the director of personal finance strategies at Your Money Line and is the co-host of the Pete the Planner Show. He’s been working in the financial industry for nearly 20 years and is passionate about providing accessible and affordable financial guidance to anyone seeking it. He also has two kids of his own, and lives in Indiana.
