    EP256 Tips to Combat Inflation

    EP256 Tips to Combat Inflation

    Over the last few months, you’ve probably heard the word “inflation” numerous times. Inflation refers to a general progressive increase in the prices of goods and services in an economy. When the general price level rises, each unit of currency buys fewer goods and services; consequently, inflation corresponds to a reduction in the purchasing power of money. So, how does this impact you and your goals? In this episode, I will break down this topic in depth so that you feel confident in your understanding of inflation.
    Listen in as I explain the pros and cons of inflation, as well as the cause behind the inflation we are currently experiencing. You will learn what you can do to protect yourself, the importance of knowing what your financial situation is, and how to set realistic financial goals throughout this time period.
    “We need to know realistically what our goals are, and we need to know how much money is coming in and how much is going out.” - Tracey Bissett
    This Week on Young Money:
    The pros and cons of inflation. What inflation actually is. What causes inflation. How we can control inflation (if we can). The importance of having a savings account for unexpected bills. How to potentially reduce your bills and weekly spending. Key takeaways:
    Review your values. Set goals. Understand your current financial situation. Build an emergency fund. Pay down debt. Keep an eye on your bills. Go through your benefits. Resources Mentioned:

    EP253 Wallet Activism with Tanja Hester

    EP253 Wallet Activism with Tanja Hester

    When making purchasing decisions, it is becoming apparent that many of us are beginning to take into consideration the ethicality of what we are buying and how it is produced. Spending ethically doesn’t have to be difficult, and it doesn’t mean that you can’t save money while doing so. Our guest today, Tanja Hester, knows this topic very well. Tanya is the author of two award-winning books, Work Optional and Wallet Activism, and is best known for retiring from her career at the age of 38. In this episode, she will be sharing several things to think about next time you’re faced with a spending decision to ensure you’re spending ethically.

    Listen in as Tanja explains why you don’t have to be making a lot of money to purchase ethically sourced goods, as well as how to think about the consumerism problems. You will learn the flaws in how we currently think about activism, how to look into what you’re funding by purchasing from a specific company, and how to ensure you’re purchasing from businesses that actually stand by what they claim.

    “There is this idea that you have to make a lot of money to be able to ethically spend, but I just really reject that idea.” - Tanja Hester
    This Week on Young Money:
    How to use every dollar spent as a force for change. What Tanja enjoys most about being work-optional. The things you can do today that make a big impact. How to think outside of consumerism. Where the world is missing the mark on activism. How to take a broader view on the way we approach things. Four questions to identify how to make better money choices. Key takeaways:
    Never stop learning. Do your research. Consumerism will not fix anything. Be more expansive in your thinking. Educate yourself. Connect with Tanja Hester:
