    77. The Latest on Crypto Regulation with Andie Kramer

    77. The Latest on Crypto Regulation with Andie Kramer

    In recent years, the rise of digital currencies has revolutionized the way we think about money and finance, with more and more individuals and businesses embracing the potential of blockchain technology. However, with this rapid growth has come a significant amount of uncertainty and confusion around the legal and regulatory frameworks that govern this new asset class. And as the crypto industry continues to grow and evolve, the issue of regulation and security will remain a key focus for lawmakers and industry stakeholders alike.
    One of the biggest challenges facing the crypto industry today is the issue of security, with several high-profile exchange hacks and collapses leading to the loss of billions of dollars in assets. In response, lawmakers and regulators around the world have been grappling with how to protect consumers and investors in this space. In the US, Congress is currently considering several bills aimed at increasing oversight and regulation of the crypto industry, including measures to require crypto exchanges to register with the SEC and establish minimum capital requirements.
    In this episode, Malcolm sits down with Andie Kramer, Founding Member of ASKramer Law, to discuss the current state of regulation in digital assets, such as cryptocurrencies and stable coins. Andie shares her thoughts on regulatory, tax, and governance issues both globally and in the U.S.

    76. How to Know Whether Options Belong in Your Portfolio with Jessica Inskip

    76. How to Know Whether Options Belong in Your Portfolio with Jessica Inskip

    Investing is a way to grow your money over time, and secure your financial future. When you invest without a clear plan, you're more likely to make decisions based on emotions, rather than logic. You may be tempted to buy a stock because it's the latest hot trend or sell a stock because you're afraid of losing money. However, when you invest with a purpose, you have a plan in place that guides your investment decisions. And thus, you're less likely to make impulsive decisions that can lead to unnecessary financial losses.
    Investing with a purpose means having a clear understanding of your financial goals and investing accordingly. And it requires taking the time to evaluate your financial situation, your willingness, and capacity to take financial risk, and your overall objectives for the capital you plan to put to work. It is not about chasing the latest investment fad or trying to beat the market in the short term. Instead, it's about creating a plan and investing in a way that maximizes your chances of success.
    In this episode, Malcolm Ethridge sits down with Jessica Inskip, Director of Education and Product for OptionsPlay, to discuss the importance of investing with purpose, as well as the need to have a firm grasp of the basics prior to jumping into the more complex world of options trading. Jessica shares her unique insight into the different strategies investors can take to limit their risk when investing, as well as how to know when it’s time to introduce more complex strategies into your investment mix.
    Jessica Inskip Discusses:
    How to know whether you’re ready to trade optionsHow to use options to reduce the risk inherent in a portfolioThe various ways to incorporate options strategies into a portfolioThe risks of following finfluencers

    75. Navigating Money and Divorce with Andrew Hatherley

    75. Navigating Money and Divorce with Andrew Hatherley

    Nobody enters a marriage expecting to get divorced. Yet, regardless of our best intentions, relationships can and do fall apart. While the emotional roller coaster of divorce is difficult enough, the added frustration of financial litigations can make a situation that much worse. Unfortunately, the current system of divorce in the United States does a poor job of educating clients on the alternatives to litigation. And in the event legal arbitration is the only choice left: where does one turn?
    Given their higher salaries and equity arrangements, tech workers are more likely than most to enter marriages with lop-sided assets or income, or both. Furthermore, as a tech worker, it is common to spend your early years building a career, resulting in a later-life marriage, and sometimes with children from a previous relationship. Because of this, some parties may stand to walk away from a marriage with much more than they came into it with. These realities of life should not be ignored when considering a marriage. Even the most rational, cool-headed individuals can be sucked into the emotional damage that is typical of divorce.
    On this episode, Malcolm Ethridge sits down with Andrew Hatherley, Certified Divorce Financial Analyst and founder of Wiser Divorce Solutions, to discuss his work helping divorcing couples and individuals avoid the financial and emotional hazards of divorce. Having been divorced himself, Andrew has first-hand experience with the broken and frustrating U.S. “Divorce System” and seeks to do his part to help change the way divorce is handled in this country. 
    Andrew Hatherley discusses: 
    The broken divorce system in the U.S.The true cost of filing for divorceWays to avoid an expensive and protracted divorce proceedingThe importance of prenuptial agreements among couples intending to marry
