Money Wisdom From Dad Reboot

My dad is somewhat of a legend in the financial services world. He’s been helping people for well over 40 years now and is beloved for his personality and intent on always putting the client’s needs before his. I know him as Dad and the person who taught me almost everything I know about personal finance.

On This Podcast Episode:

My Dad, Stan, is joining us for a lively discussion about the advice he has about how to be smart with your money in your twenties and thirties. We’ll also talk about the difference between perceptions of money when he was in his twenties versus now – which is always a fun topic for me.

Dad’s top advice:

  • Save for emergencies (and save more than you think)
  • Invest in your 401(k) and don’t touch the money
  • Cover your risks, but only if you have a strong ER fund
  • Don’t be afraid to try and learn when it comes to smart money moves

How to Talk to Kids About Money (with Gregg Murset)

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. I so wish I had this as a kid!

New podcast episode about how to talk to your kids about money

What You’ll Learn

  • Practical ways to talk to your kids, or anyone’s kids, about money
  • How to use technology to change the conversation and impact with kids
  • Money wisdom Gregg has learned from talking to his 6 kids about money
  • Why Gregg thinks we all need to pay attention to financial literacy
  • How to turn chores and an allowance into a savings account and stock investing
