Why Being Bad With Money Isn’t So Bad With Gaby Dunn + Ask Shannah

You may know of the name Gaby Dunn. She’s host of a popular podcast, Bad With Money, and is also a New York Times best-selling author, journalist, Comedian and YouTuber. Basically, she’s never bored! Gaby realized one day that if she was bad with money, other people must be too, and so she decided to start a conversation around it.

On This Podcast Episode:

“Money scripts, how you think about money based on what your family taught you is a new concept to me. Everybody learned about money by who they were raised by and it’s hard to undo that,” proclaims Gaby on this podcast episode.

This was one of my favorite podcast conversations. Gaby is funny, engaging, and deeply committed to understanding why people are bad with their money. Her podcast hosts intelligent guests and she’s not afraid to be raw and real about her own money journey. We’re covering:

  • How money scripts play into your financial thoughts
  • Why she thinks the lack of financial literacy is a conspiracy
  • How her own money story has shaped her finances
  • Why she feels talking about money is so important…even if it’s a taboo topic

A 12-Month Plan to Financial Freedom – Getting Invested with Danielle Town + Ask Shannah

I get sent a lot of books to review for the podcast – some great, some just ok. I sat down with Danielle Town’s new book on a Friday afternoon, Invested – How Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger Taught Me to Master My Mind, My Emotions & My Money (with a little help from my dad), and I couldn’t put it down until I read every last word!

On This Podcast Episode:

I’ve had a lot of cool and interesting podcast interviews but this chat with Danielle takes the cake. Her book is all about this 12-month journey that she took with her dad & investing guru, Phil Town, on her journey to financial freedom. The best part, the book details how you and I can follow the exact same process that she went through.

Naturally, I was excited to talk to Danielle about her journey, the struggles, and have her dish any great pearls of wisdom that you should know on your own investing journey. You’ll want to bookmark this podcast episode for sure (and rush out and read her book).

(This episode does not promote investing or investing techniques. Please invest based on your own financial situation or after speaking with your financial advisor.)

What Nobody Tells You About Your Money

I’ve been fortunate enough to be a guest on a lot of different podcasts lately where I get to share my own money story. Inevitably, I’m always asked, “What is your best money advice.” I love that question because it gives me a chance to talk about those things that seemingly no one talks about when it comes to your money.

On This Podcast Episode:

Working with people over the last 12 years, I’ve seen a lot about how people manage their finances – the good and not-so-good ways. What I have learned, regardless of the income, is there are a lot of things that no one tells you about your money.

In this episode, I’m dishing my top five things that I believe no one really talks about when it comes to money but really should. I think if we did, maybe we might all be able to breathe a sigh of relief.

From Financial Disadvantage to Being Empowered with Warren Hogarth + Ask Shannah

You’d think when you arrive in the U.S. getting set up financially would be easy. Not so fast. When Warren Hogarth of Empower came to the U.S. from Austrailia in 2004 he quickly realized he was at a disadvantage with all things financial – getting credit and building your credit was no easy task.

On This Podcast Episode:

I had a candid conversation with Warren about his transition to the U.S. and how “the system” attempted to keep him down when it came to his finances. Luckily, he’s sharing some of the money lessons he learned during that time as well as the journey he’s taken to turn the disadvantages into a new app,  Empower.

Warren spent eight years as a Partner at the #1 VC firm in the world, Sequoia Capital. They’ve invested in companies like Square, LinkedIn, WhatsApp, and AirBnB, and Warren stood shoulder-to-shoulder with founders to build large, enduring businesses (3 went from zero to over $1 billion).

If you take away one thing for this episode, it should be his best piece of money advice (stay to the end of the episode to hear his inspirational take away).

Shout Out To Our Sponsor:

This episode was sponsored by The Decrypting Crypto Podcast. As Warren said in the podcast episode, learning all you can about Crypto will keep you educated and in a position to make smart money moves.

Saying I Do – Wedding Do’s and Don’ts with Bridechilla Host Aleisha McCormack

The average cost of a wedding in the U.S. is $33,391 according to Business Insider and from my experience, many of us spend money on items in our wedding that might not be the most beneficial to our bank account. I recently was a guest on Aleisha McCormak’s Bridechilla podcast, so I figured it would great to have Aleisha share with you some of her favorite wedding do’s and don’ts when it comes to spending your cash.

On This Podcast Episode:

She’s a comedian and a TV presenter from the U.K. who turned her wisdom from planning her own wedding into a top-rated iTunes podcast, Bridechilla. Seriously, even if you aren’t planning a wedding, you’re going to enjoy hearing Aleisha dish wisdom about some of her favorite wedding do’s and don’ts – including her f**k it bucket suggestion – and how to survive the day as stress-free as humanly possible.

Ask Shannah -What Are The Downsides To Extreme Personal Finance

I’m dedicating today’s podcast episode to an Ask Shannah question that came in a couple of weeks ago from Tabitha and Robert:

“Hey Shannah, I’m reading a lot of articles that talk about the extreme side of personal finance and I find myself falling prey to the stereotypes that I’m not succeeding in my finances unless I’m 100% debt-free and that just seems impossible to me. I read all these articles about people who are retiring by 40 and paying off massive amounts of debt, but I’m not sure that’s the vision I have for my life…please provide some insight.”

On This Podcast Episode:

The topic of extreme personal finance is one I have a lot to say about. I’m breaking down the good, the bad, and all the in-between on this episode in what I hope will be a thought-provoking discussion about the journey to be 100% debt-free.

In fact, I recently was quoted in a U.S. News & World Report article about this very topic with some other like-minded CFP® professionals who share my viewpoint and had some very insightful knowledge to add to the topic.
