For our Fintech Spotlight segment this month, we are featuring qplum, a company that is bringing AI, data-driven strategies, and affordability to the world of investing. I’ve invited the co-founder and CEO of qplum, Mansi Singhal, to tell us more about the company today.
We’re also going to discuss why monitoring our investment portfolio might actually be a really bad idea.
Andy Hill: The markets have been up and down a lot lately, and I’ve been checking my portfolio a lot more frequently. Why is that not a good idea?
One fall night in 2010, my wife Nicole and I were watching the Suze Orman Show. (Yes, I used to DVR it). There was this fun segment where someone would call in and Suze would analyze that person’s financial health and give them a grade. It was called How Am I Doing?
One term that we kept seeing over and over again on this segment was “Net Worth”. Since we were personal finance newbies, we had no idea what this meant. Nicole and I were making a combined six-figure income together so we figured our net worth must be HUGE.
After the show was over, we decided to see how rich we really were. There was no doubt in our mind that we’d be better off than most of the jokers that call in to the show and get an “F” grade from Suze!
We walked upstairs and started to write down all of our numbers on a big white board. By separating our “assets” (what we owned) and our liabilities (what we owed) into two big columns, we started to discover that we weren’t rich.
The moment we discover there are income streams to be had outside of our full-time employment, that’s when we truly can skyrocket our net worth. That is the exact time when Justin Weinger from So Over This started to grow his family’s wealth.
At 38 years old, Justin has amassed a net worth of around $2 million.
Let’s find out how his side hustles and small business development helped him to get there!
A major step in becoming a young millionaire is tracking your net worth. On the other hand, wealth building is not all about the numbers.
Our guest today, Adam from Minafi, sees wealth building as a way to travel, explore the world and create lifelong memories with his wife. By securing solid financial footing in his 30’s, Adam has been able to realize those dreams early in his life.
It is time to take some massive action to improve our financial situations before the year is up. That way we’ll kick things off in January with confidence and more money in our pockets.
If you made a list of goals or new years resolutions earlier this year, now is the time to look at that list and assess how you’re doing. Think about what action you can take to accomplish those big goals you set for yourself earlier this year.
Now if you didn’t make any goals or can’t find that list, that’s okay! I have 5 goals for you to consider to help you improve your financial situation before the new year.
When you’re a new parent, there a lot of financial hurdles to jump over.
What are we going to do for childcare? How does this affect our income? Can we afford this new life of ours?
Today we speak with a new parent who’s recently had to answer a lot of these questions. Sarah Li-Cain is our guest today. She is a young mother, a wife and a full-time writer. By pursuing her passion and growing her income, Sarah has been able to make over $100,000 per year working 25 hours per week and still be able to spend quality time her with 3-year old son.
