Shannah Shares: Is All Debt Bad?
The Community Q&A comes from Sheila who writes: "Well hi there Shannah, thanks for all the great money gems that you dish out on the show. You’ve really changed my life and I love listening to episodes over and over again because I always learn something else. This podcast is like my fun encyclopedia for all things money. That sounds bad - seriously this show is fun and educational. Ok, so I have a question. I’ve really been thinking about my debt and want to seriously tackle it. I know you’ve done a lot of episodes on this, but curious if there’s one that you could point me to. I’m trying to reframe how I’m thinking about debt too. I know you mention that not all debt is bad...I mean, is that true? I seriously hope it is because it feels really unrealistic to say that I will never have debt and that when I’m debt-free, I won’t have debt again. That just doesn’t make any sense. So I think the trick is to figure out how to pay it off with a strategy as you say and then have a good mindset about debt going forward. Anyway, I’d love to hear any guest again that you think has a good perspective on this whole debt thing. Please keep up the podcast...it’s honestly the reason why my finances are so together and it feels really good."  Take a listen to this episode featuring Michael Bovee and his take on debt. Michael is a debt expert and co-founder of Resolve a company that helps people in financial distress navigate their way to financial health. In this chat, Michael shares ways to pay down debt, the nitty-gritty about debt settlement, and the ins and outs of filing for bankruptcy. My rule is there is no room for judgment when it comes to debt – life happens, things happen, let this episode be a tool you can use if you or anyone you know find themselves making debt payoff a top resolution for 2020.  Links Resolve Pay Down Debt Episode Sponsors Masterworks.io is the only platform that lets you invest in multimillion-dollar paintings by icons like Basquiat, Banksy, and Harring without breaking the bank.

Shannah Shares: Tearing Down 5 Investing Taboos
Tearing down 5 investing taboos on this episode of Shannah Shares, Community Q&A. Today's question comes from Laquesha: "Hi Shannah. Thanks so much for answering my question. I really want to start investing but I keep getting hung up on all the chatter out there. I can’t figure out if I’m supposed to wait to start investing until I’ve paid off all my debt, or is that not smart to do? Also, it just feels like I need to be an expert at investing to do it well. I know that’s not true, but man, it just feels so hard to figure out investing. I know so many people are making a kiling, and I kinda feel bad that I haven’t started at all, know what I mean. You’ve done so many great investing episodes, I’m curious if there’s an episode from the past that you think I should check out. You’re awesome and I so appreciate this show for motivating me. My boyfriend can’t believe I care this much about my money, but I just tell him, yes, yes I do and so should you. Ok, thanks again."

Everything You Need to Know About Homeowner's & Renter's Insurance
This episode is your masterclass in everything you need to know about home owner's and renter's insurance. Steve Lekas, co-founder and CEO of Branch Insurance, is here to educate and demystify all things homeowner’s insurance.  We talk about it all, how much insurance should you have, how to save money, and some fun tips including my very favorite insurance policy that you need to have in this episode Steve got his start in insurance at Allstate to put himself through school at Kent State. A decade later he went on to build the first-ever online home insurance business at Esurance. After 18 years in the industry, Steve became increasingly frustrated with how broken insurance had become with lengthy processes and rising costs. Chasing down his entrepreneurial calling, Steve set out to right the wrongs of the industry by creating insurance that’s quick, easy, affordable, and built to do good. In August of 2019 Branch Insurance pioneered the quickest way to bundle home and auto insurance completely online and is now embarking on a national expansion.
