Should You Pay Off Debt or Save Money?

Answering the classic question on this episode of Millennial Money.

Pay Off Debt or Save Money?

That’s the classic debate – the #1 question I’m always asked. While it’s always easy to figure the answer out when you’re helping a friend, it can be hard to figure it out for yourself. It seems like a trick question. Is it wrong if pay off debt? Is it wrong if I save money? OMG, I’m so confused.

Don’t Stress Yourself Out

Not to spoil the thunder of this Millennial Money podcast episode, but the answer is neither one is wrong and neither one is right. They are just two choices and you have to do your best to figure out what will work for your individual situation.

In this podcast episode I’m covering:

  • What is smart debt and what is dumb debt
  • The two ways you use to pay off debt
  • A real live case study of a millennial stuck in this situation
  • What should your payoff plan look like

Here’s a link to a great resource where you can create your own payoff plan for any type of debt. Ready For Zero’s tool will help you crush all types of debt.

You can totally do this – whether you choose to pay off the debt, save your money or a combination of both, you’re headed in the right financial direction. Just don’t keep yourself stuck figuring out what the “right” way is, because they’re both right.

Don’t Wreck Your Credit By Doing This One Thing

This is the one thing you should never do  in terms of your credit score. Credit score is tricky. There are thousands of articles out there talking about credit score, and yet it’s so challenging to figure out why your credit score is the number it is. With that said, there is one particular thing that you can do to keep your score rocking, even if you have a few bad marks on your credit. It’s quite simple…pay your bills on time.

Your payment history has a 35% impact on your overall credit score. While a 30 or 60-day late might not have a big impact, a 90 or 180-day late will have a huge impact on your score for a long period of time.

On this podcast episode, I’m dishing all about this pesky credit trick and how you can keep your credit score on track. I also cover the popular topic of collections. This is a complete grey area, but I’ve got a few tips if you do have a collections on your credit report.

Launch Your Business Without Going Broke

You don't have to spend thousands of dollars to launch. All you need is a good idea, some smart planning and someone who is willing to pay for your product or service. Let’s be real. You don’t have to be wealthy with a huge trust fund to launch a successful business.  All it takes is some smart planning, a great idea and a few hundred bucks to launch. Sure, there are always things you can spend your money on – a better website, better marketing, better programs, etc. The point is, until you figure out if your idea will really make money (aka will someone buy it from you), why would you spend more than you had to?

On this episode of Millennial Money, I had the chance to chat with the amazing Nadia Finer, who runs Little Voice, Big Business (all the way in England). Nadia isn’t just any business strategy and launch coach. She’s had to learn the hard way to embrace what’s unique about herself and use that to her advantage. She’s sharing all sorts of business launch tips sprinkled with some important life lessons that everyone should hear. Nadia Finer

Just How Do You Pick a Stock | Millennial Wall Street Interview

Picking a stock is tough work and you've got to know what you're doing. On this episode I chat with Millennial Wall Street Founder and Member about their tips to launch your portfolio.

You want to invest in stocks but have no idea where to start. You’re so not alone. Picking stocks can be a full-time job and certainly not for the squeamish.
