One big common misconception is that you have to have a ton of money to start doing cool things with your money, like growing it or giving it a direction, and that simply isn’t true. Some of the best money moves I’ve made is when I didn’t have a lot but I knew I needed to be really intentional and good things happened because I had a plan in place. Our podcast guest, Anna Sergunina is also working to blow up that myth. Anna is a kick-ass Certified Financial Planner and the President & CEO at MainStreet Financial Planning Inc., the nation’s largest fee-only, hourly project-based financial planning business.

Do you remember who talked to you about money? For most of us, the answer to that question is no one, really. In fact, a recent study by Quicken revealed that one-third of adults said no one taught them about money when they were a child and in turn, are twice as likely to delay talking to their own children about money until they are 18 or older. Frustrated by this, Gregg Murset, CEO of BusyKid, decided to find a better way to talk to kids about money. Using technology, Gregg created My Job Chart, the first electronic chore/allowance platform to take advantage of our modern digital society.

That may be my view, but I was curious, with the rise of an inclusive culture and social responsibility, how are companies and investors supporting the LGBTQia+ community.

We're featuring another Best Of episode from last year that was a listener favorite. All personal finance experts can agree on one thing – starting to save early will almost always help you reach your lifestyle goals quicker and with more ease than those who wait longer. When you think about your savings there are two ways you can save – the crockpot style or the microwave style. Inspired by a recent industry article in Financial Planning Magazine, thinking about a crockpot for your savings strategy makes pretty good sense. With any crockpot recipe, the idea is simple. You gather all your ingredients ahead of time, throw them into the crockpot, turn it on low and slow for 6-8 hours, and then you have an almost always perfect meal sure to wow anyone. What You'll LearnWe’ll chat about the crockpot method of savingsWhy a crockpot method might make more sense than microwaving your savingsFocus on saving little by little over time with consistency so whenever you reach the age you would like to quit working, you’re investments and savings have spent some time “cooking together.”Let’s talk about what you can and can’t control with your savingsSome guidelines to always keep in mind with savings Links Mentioned:401(k) CalculatorHow Much to Save for RetirementInvestor Questionnaire Risk Tolerance Profile (just pretend it’s in USD) SUBSCRIBE & SHARE Want to be the first to know when new episodes are released? Click here to subscribe in iTunes!

On this special Christmas episode, we're featuring a Best Of episode that was a listener favorite. It takes some work to spend $2 million a month like Johnny Depp has been the last few years. I mean, come on, that does take some work to do that (but I’d love the chance to try, right). You don’t need to have Johnny Depp’s bank account though to let yourself get carried away with your budget and spending. What is it that you’re playing for? You see, even Johnny Depp’s financial advisors started to waive some caution flags in front of him when his spending got carried away. When this happens, it’s time to dial in and budget for your life, not your bank account. What You'll LearnWe’ll chat about the ridiculousness of Johnny Depp’s spending and what you can learn from itHow you can visualize your own spending in a way that makes sense and keeps you motivatedWhere do you begin to set some boundaries around spending or even your goalsWhat are you playing for - this is the million dollar question SUBSCRIBE & SHARE Want to be the first to know when new episodes are released? Click here to subscribe in iTunes!
