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!

Always a joy to listen to Joe, OG, Doug and friends including Paula Pant and Len Penzo. Never miss an episode and especially enjoy the Friday shows! Keep up the great work and see you in the basement
The amount of disdain Joe has for the common man seems to be increasing. Don’t cut coupons, don’t drive Uber, just make more money.
Excellent for finance noobs and nerds. Entertaining and educational
Joe and OG have an uncanny way of breaking down complex financial topics into actionable takeaways.
They are extremely entertaining, and make for great radio. The daily commute flies by since discovering these two.
I also like getting different perspectives from their guests and regular roundtable episodes.
Keep up the good work, Joe! Size XL (inside joke)
