    From the Ghetto to a Growth Mindset | Jerry Brown

    From the Ghetto to a Growth Mindset | Jerry Brown

    Today's episode features Jerry Brown from Peerless Money Mentor.



    Jerry grew up in a self-described ghetto with no real view of a way out.



    We cover his background, how he turned things around, and how he's built a powerful financial independence network.



    You won't want to miss this inspiring story!



    Listen, learn, and let us know what you think about this awesome episode.

    Episode Summary

    Jerry's Background



    * Jerry didn't really know he was poor growing up

    * But he lived in a crime-filled neighborhood with few outside role models

    * His mom also needed assistance to get by

    * He talks about how people were surprised he'd even admit that he was from the area he lived in

    * Growing up he thought basketball or rapping would be the only possible way to escape

    * His mom did put a big emphasis on learning but financial independence never seemed reasonable



    Can you Bootstrap Past Disadvantages?



    * Jerry sees it as a mixed bag

    * He does put a lot of weight into hard work

    * But he also acknowledges the real disadvantages

    * He was also cognizant enough to understand his family was a big advantage



    Jerry's Financial Mistakes



    * Jerry was young and healthy so he thought he didn't need insurance

    * A large dental procedure led him to serious credit card debt

    * Then he started buying more things on credit

    * Eventually, Jerry would buy a $22k car while only earning $22k per year



    Financial Wake Up Call



    * He came home and his fiance had her bags packed

    * Jerry realized he couldn't afford to live by himself

    * So he thought he'd just live out of his car to avoid the embarrassment of moving home

    * Jerry was also carrying debt with 25% interest rates

    * He was making payments but was never actually making progress

    * A friend recommended he refinance through a personal loan

    * This lowered his debt all the way down to 5%

    * For his remaining credit card bills, he did a balance transfer

    * That gave him 0% rate for 18 months



    Jerry's Side Hustle Journey



    * He tried Swagbucks but the payout was terrible

    * Then he tried Uber but it was taking a toll on his car

    * Jerry also tried We Go Look where you send in pictures of damaged vehicles for insurance claims.

    * Now he is getting more into freelance writing and social media management

    * Jerry also highly recommends Beta Testing.



    Networking



    * This was a really powerful part of Jerry's story

    * Networking expanded his world view

    * It also tangibly impacted him

    * From ideas on debt payment or side hustles like freelance writing

    * Jerry really highlights the importance to surround yourself with people you can draw knowledge and encouragement from



    Key Takeaways



    * Artificial Limits: One thing that really stuck out was the disadvantage that people experience simply by having low expectations set for them and surrounding them.

    * Mental Health: We loved that Jerry was open about his mental health journey and his encouragement to others to also take it seriously.

    Learning How to Stack Benjamins | Joe Saul-Sehy

    Learning How to Stack Benjamins | Joe Saul-Sehy

    Today's episode features Joe Saul-Sehy from Stacking Benjamins.



    Before creating a massively popular podcast, Joe made a lot of money mistakes.



    This all came to a clash when he was working as a financial advisor, owned his own business, and still could barely get the money to get home.



    Now Joe is bringing finances into so many homes via a unique comedic angle.



    Listen, learn, and let us know what you think about this awesome episode!

    Episode Summary

    Joe's Background



    * Joe was in high school and remembers seeing news specials on money-saving tips

    * He also got inspired by the movie Wall Street

    * But it took Joe a long time to actually put it into practice

    * His parents pushed him to work hard but money was taboo



    Making Money Missteps



    On his first day at college, Joe spots a long line at an American Express Credit Card table

    * He talks about blowing money at the mall and fancy meals at Ruby Tuesday for his friends

    * Then things get real when he gets a bill and his parents refuse to help him

    * His credit was destroyed and the interest started building

    * Even in his professional life, he thought he had an earning issue, not a spending issue

    * But we know from famous athletes that a spending problem will always overcome earnings

    * Joe started earning more money with his own business but kept racking up debt

    * Keep in mind, his business was as a financial advisor

    * The breaking moment is when he has no money or credit to buy gas to get home

    * Joe had to dig for change in his seats just to get home



    Turning Things Around



    Joe realized he needed to "hide money" from himself

    * This meant automating money to go into separate accounts that he didn't see

    * He also realized that he couldn't go cold turkey

    * Joe gave himself an allowance so he could buy some of those entertainment items

    * He said it's important to not be too restrictive or else you'll relapse



    Entrepreneurial Journey



    * Joe says he's a bad employee

    * He would always clash with a boss

    * Joe admits he also wasn't a great boss at first

    * He might hire people too much like him

    * Or spout off ideas through the day not thinking his employees would take that as direction



    Starting Stacking Benjamins



    Joe sold his business at age 40

    * This was inspired by a colleague who walked away because it wasn't fulfilling

    * That person, Chris,  stepped away to go climb mountains across the world

    * Chris would then go on to start an adventure travel company

    * Inspired by this, Joe decides to go back to school to become a teacher/coach

    * He realized quickly that it wasn't for him

    * So Joe starts dabbling in a blog and creates the  Stacking Benjamins podcast

    * He wanted to take the unique angle of comedy

    * They took it really seriously and even would attend comedy classes



    Pulling From Others



    * Joe recommends the book by Austin Kleon - Think like an artist

    * He really recommends people look at others in their industry and pull all the best parts

    * It was actually a car podcast that was hilarious to him that inspired the Stacking Benjamin theme
