    It’s been a rough 17 months with the COVID-19 pandemic, but it looks like we are finally coming out of it.

    Teaching Your Kids About Money with Derrick Kinney

    Teaching Your Kids About Money with Derrick Kinney

    For some reason, parents seem to have difficulty talking to their children about money. The mindset of good money habits doesn’t seem to get passed down to the next generation. This is why 7 out of 10 American millionaires are first generation.
    That’s why in Episode 97 of the podcast I talked about this subject at length. However, as this topic bears repeating, I have brought on to this episode of the podcast Derrick Kinney, a fellow financial freedom advocate to share his thoughts on the subject.
    In this episode you will learn:
    The 3 Beliefs About Money No One is Teaching Their Kids How to talk to young children about money The pre-teen conversation about finances How to prepare your teenager to leave the financial nest How to launch your adult child into the world

    Unlike Bill & Melinda, Should You Get a Prenup?

    Unlike Bill & Melinda, Should You Get a Prenup?

    The impending divorce of Bill and Melinda Gates has been in the news a lot lately, and journalists have been discussing whether or not they should have gotten a prenuptial agreement before getting married. I remember thinking at the time of the wedding that I hoped that he had one, but apparently not.
    So with so much attention being drawn to the subject, I thought I would discuss in this episode all about what a prenuptial agreement is, the pros and cons, whether you might need one, how it might help you, and how you can go about getting one.
    In this episode you will learn:
    What a Prenup Is The Pros and Cons of Having One Whether You Should Have One Whether You Should Hire a Lawyer to Draft It
