    Millennial Money with guest Katelyn Magnuson

    Millennial Money with guest Katelyn Magnuson

    As Millennials, we live with the guilt of killing thousands of industries per day. We’re lazy and we expect things to be handed to us with no effort. We need safe spaces and avocado toast to make it through the day. We have debt up to our eyeballs, get married later in life and think of plants and dogs as our kids.
    If you’ve ever heard our generation chalked up to these tropes, Episode 118 is for you. Katelyn Magnuson joins Sami on A Sunny Side Up Life Podcast to discuss how Millennials are blazing their own trails and changing the conversation around norms. Especially money norms.
    IN THIS EPISODE, WE CHAT ABOUT: Intentional financial goal setting
    How Millennials are changing money conversations
    The different stigmas that our generation is breaking
    Women taking the position of power players and leaders in the money-making and money-handling role

    Paying Off Debt: Snowball vs. Avalanche

    Paying Off Debt: Snowball vs. Avalanche

    You’ve heard Sami say it a million times: “Personal finance is personal”. This philosophy applies at the very start of your debt free journey. Paying off debt is as personal as anything else in personal finance. It’s kind of obvious... because it’s in the name.
    That’s why we’re breaking down The Debt Snowball Method v. The Avalanche Method and what method works best with different scenarios. We explain what these two methods are, why each could work for you and more!
    IN THIS EPISODE, SAMI SHARES ABOUT: The Debt Snowball Method
    The Debt Avalanche Method
    The positives and negatives of both methods
    Why you may want to chose one or the other
    The benefits of making debt payoff personal to your situation
    Questions:
    Do you need a quick win with a small balance debt gone?
    Do you need to save money with the higher interest gone?
    Do you need a certain debt gone simply because it causes you stress?
    Do you owe family or the IRS?
    Do you have a deadline? Are you having a baby, moving to a different state, or changing careers?
    Play around with the timelines + the math. Then make out your own custom debt payoff plan.

    Politics directly affects everything from unemployment and job creation, to taxes, healthcare, education. If you care about personal finance and your family’s budget — you must care about politics too.

Plus, I’ll share my tips on how to make voting with your kids in-tow super simple.
    IN THIS EPISODE, SAMI SHARES ABOUT: Why you can’t keep politics out of personal finance
    Why your voice matters regardless of your occupation or income level
    Why voting is so important — not just for president, but for state and local officials too
    My tips for making voting with your kids in-tow much easier
    Why you can’t detach politics from money
    Examples of how politics affects our personal budgets with areas like unemployment, job creation, taxes, healthcare, education, and more
    How politics directly affects our education systems
    Why financial literacy is crucial for Black and Latino Americans, as well as women if we ever hope to break the wage gap
    How politics, education, and the wage gap are all directly related
