How To Build Your Stack + Millennials Ditch Financial Advisors
Getting started on your personal financial journey is the hardest part. Where do you start and how do you get that first Benjamin stacked? And then how do you make sure to keep those Benjamins safe and make them work for you? Lucky for us, Emily Guy Birken and our very own Joe Saul-Sehy wrote a book that dives into personal finance and offers real, practical tips and strategies to help you be successful. Humor and easy-to-follow action items make it a great way to jump into your own journey. They are here today and were interviewed by Doc G from the Earn & Invest podcast to share behind the scenes stories of how the book was written and some of the points they dive into in the book.
During our headline we'll talk about those old sales tactics of playing rounds of golf and going out for extravagant dinners to get clients and why some millennials aren't buying it. Financial advisors have more responsibility than just investing your money but some young people are choosing to manage their own investments and explain why. Plus, Doug will share some trivia.
LIVE From EconoMe 2021
It's a special Saturday episode!
Community plays a big role in our lives and the community you surround yourself with can make all the difference on the path you are on. We are lucky to be part of a pretty badass community here and are lucky to have such great people to lean on. We are live today from the2021 EconoMe conference in Cincinnati with special guests Piggy and Kitty from Bitches Get Riches. They share thoughts on some stats about what we do (and don't) share with others about our finances and how we can all help each other reach that next level of greatness.
We'll also discuss a current headline about Zillow dumping homes. Zillow is selling houses across the country after realizing flipping homes isn't as easy as they make it look on HGTV (not their story, but that's our take). Is Zillow selling in your state? And what does this mean for the real estate market as a whole? We'll share our thoughts!

He's here today to give tips and pointers to surviving any party. Not an introvert? These tips will help you, too!

I love how the show has changed
I've listened to Stack for a long, long time, and different than lots of shows, I've noticed the conversations have become sharper. The show has more of a "late night talk show" tone. I've had more laugh-out-loud moments during my morning run. Highly recommend. Doug even has changed over time to get smarter! Who gets smarter???
Back to drawing board with EconoMe
Format didn’t work. But keep trying.
Entertaining and Informative Show
I’ve been listening for the last couple months to this and love the information to make me a financial titan. The variety of guests is great and they’re joking and playful personas makes me look forward to each episode.
