The Art of Staying Small with Paul Jarvis + Ask Shannah

You can call it FOMO or whatever you like, but the feeling that you need to make millions of dollars in your business and life and work harder and better than everyone else.

Best of: Crockpot Your Savings

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 Learn

  • We’ll chat about the crockpot method of savings
  • Why a crockpot method might make more sense than microwaving your savings
  • Focus 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 savings
  • Some guidelines to always keep in mind with savings

Best of: Budget for Your Life, Not Your Bank Account

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 Learn

  • We’ll chat about the ridiculousness of Johnny Depp’s spending and what you can learn from it
  • How you can visualize your own spending in a way that makes sense and keeps you motivated
  • Where do you begin to set some boundaries around spending or even your goals
  • What are you playing for – this is the million dollar question

Political Threats and Your Bank Account with Mark Hamrick + Ask Shannah

When I got out of college, I didn’t really care what went on in Washington and the government. It just sort of happened behind the scenes of my life. But now I care because I see how policies and government decisions can have an impact – good or bad- on my bank account and yet, it’s so hard to decipher what is good and not good watching the news and getting the highlights. So, I went straight to Mark Hamrick, Bankrate’s senior economic analyst, to ask him how the political environment will impact you and me and what we need to know to be prepared.

What You’ll Learn

  • Why what happens in Washington with the government matters when it comes to our finances
  • What are some of the political and economic threats against your money for the new year
  • Is the government really doing anything to help student loan debt
  • What economic indicators you should pay attention to
  • How the rising interest rates impact your goals and your finances
  • How can you protect your finances against whichever party is in office
