    Are you investing well for financial freedom...or not?
    Financial freedom is a combination of money, compounding and time (my McT Formula). How well you invest, makes a huge difference to your financial future and lifestyle.
    If you only knew where to invest for the long-term, what a difference it would make, because the difference between investing $100k and earning 2 percent or 10 percent on your money over 30 years, is the difference between it growing to $181,136 or $1,744,940, an increase of over $1.5 million dollars.
    Your compounding rate, and how well you invest, matters!

Amazing, informative and transformational podcasts!

Whenever I have a question about a financial aspect of my life, I turn to Linda P. Jones: Be Wealthy & Smart …and there is an informed answer! I started listening many years ago -in the beginning… Now, the rich episodes about cryptos and cycles are here. Linda really talks about the times we live in. And, the times they are a changing! So important to keep abreast and not become a dinosaur. Thankyou Linda for your steadfast journey with the topic of Be Wealthy and Smart. 😊

Excellent content!

I have been listening to the Be Wealthy and Smart podcast for about 2 years. It’s by far my favorite financial podcast as Linda covers all financial topics from stocks to real estate to crypto and more. She explains what we need to know in concise episodes that are super informative and actionable. It’s fantastic educational content!

"User friendly"

Linda P Jones makes financial investing and strategy easy to understand for people like me who are not so savvy. But her user friendly approach has made me into a more confident savvier investor. My net worth has increased since following her.
