    Should I Use My Retirement Account to Buy a House- Ask Shannah

    Should I Use My Retirement Account to Buy a House- Ask Shannah

    78,000. That’s a 20% downpayment on the average price of a house in 2022, according to The Zebra. No matter how much money you make, that’s a sizable amount. After you riffle through your couch cushions and pull out your rusty calculator to figure out how many coffee runs you need to skip, the question remains: where will you find that kind of cash? In this vault, Ask Shannah, I’m answering the burning question: should I take money from my retirement account to buy a house, or is that the worst decision ever?

    Side Hustles That Make the Most Money with Whitney Hansen

    Side hustles can be a game-changer in your money situation. Our guest, Whitney Hansen, host of the Money Nerds podcast, knows something about bringing in more cash flow. She has tried and tested many side hustles to find the most profitable and worthy of your time. In this vault episode, we talk about her most profitable side hustles, and I’m talking ways to bring in $500 - a couple of thousands of dollars a month, and why she thinks starting an Airbnb side hustle might not be wise this year, and how to turn your skills and talents into extra cash quickly. Let this be the year you unstick yourself - the year where you create cash flow and move it towards your goals.

    Why Is Money So Complicated with Paula Poundstone

    Why Is Money So Complicated with Paula Poundstone

    Money is complicated. This is a common human feeling about money. There’s a lot to think about - how do you spend money to reach your goals, are you saving enough for retirement, what is it with all those investing acronyms, and how do you enjoy life through all the financial ups and downs? Our guest, comedian Paula Poundstone, and host of the Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone podcast, knows a thing or two about life’s financial ups and downs. Paula was in debt for a million dollars and spent years climbing out of it. I know it’s not a laughing matter to be in debt; however, we all must embrace Paula's advice. Life will be tough. Life will throw you some curveballs. But, ultimately, life is to be enjoyed, not spent chronically stressed out about money. In this episode, we talk about why money is so complicated, how Paula navigated being in debt, and her advice on how to find true happiness in your life.

    Make, Save, and Invest Your Way to Financial Freedom with David Greene

    Make, Save, and Invest Your Way to Financial Freedom with David Greene

    How do you make, save, and invest your way to financial freedom? I’m glad you asked. Our guest, David Greene, host of the BiggerPockets Real Estate Podcast, real estate investor, and author of 5 books, including the best-seller titled Buy, Rehab, Rent, Refinance, Repeat, says you need to focus on saving your money, making more money, and investing in the best place you can. Sounds easy enough, right? So why is it so hard to reach financial freedom? David cautions you to understand your money values, not the ones you borrowed from your childhood - your true money values. David’s advice will radically change how you spend money. He calls this spending from gross, where your subconscious can trick you into thinking you are wealthier than you are. He’s a big fan of making a spending plan and including how much you pay for taxes. I promise you this tip will change how you look at your spending decisions forever. In this episode, we talk about what millionaires know about getting wealthy that we don’t, how to use your paycheck to achieve financial freedom, and, of course, we talk about real estate investing and how to use the current market to your advantage. If you love the BiggerPockets Real Estate podcast, you’ll love this conversation about reaching financial freedom.

    Protect Yourself Against Financial Scams with Sean Pyles

    Protect Yourself Against Financial Scams with Sean Pyles

    If you thought financial scams only happened to older people, I need you to listen to this episode. Financial scams like identity theft and fraud are happening to everyone and scamming people like you out of a lot of money. Did you know that investing scams were the #1 type of scam last year, and cryptocurrency was at the core of many of these investing scams? As our guest Sean Pyles, host of NerdWallet’s Smart Money podcast, said in the intro, “Scammers play on our emotions and make us feel like we’re in a very desperate situation.” Okay, how do you set yourself up to avoid as many scams as possible? Sean shares seriously eye-opening advice in this episode, including why you and your loved ones need a safe word. We also dive into why most financial scams aren’t reported; I give you a hint: it has a lot to do with the role of shame in our relationship with money. I know it’s never fun to talk about financial scams, but honestly, this is a juicy episode you must share with everyone you know. When you’re done listening, head over to the Smart Money podcast and check out their four-part series on financial scams.
