    Lacey's Bday Bash 2021

    It’s that time again. It’s my birthday and I’m happy you’re here to help me celebrate. Last year for my three siblings were guests on my show. Since then, I’ve recorded 52 episodes of the Military Money Show and talked with some amazing people. I loved every bit of it. To include my recording with my Grandma. That was a very special show. But today I have another special one. It's my Dad! In this episode, I get to grill my Dad on growing up in upstate New York, his early start in the working world, his best money advice, military life, and some of the things he taught me growing up.

    How to Join the Fight Against Cybercrime on the Military

    How to Join the Fight Against Cybercrime on the Military

    Between 2016 and 2020, Service members and veterans lost over 420 million dollars in scams that were reported. Members of the military community are victims of Cybercrimes at a higher rate than the civilian community. A steady paycheck and frequent deployments make you a big target for fraud.
    Cindy Liebes is the Chief Program Officer at the Cyber Security Network, a public and private collaboration to help individuals and small businesses combat cybercrime.
    Cindy and I talk about common types of scams and fraud impacting service members and military spouses, how you can spot them and what to do about them whether you are a victim or not.

I love this show

I was a guest on military money show with Lacey and loved the experience. Lacey gave a great interview and really dug in to find great insight for her listeners. She did a great job promoting the show and also referred me out to some other podcast that she was familiar with and thought that I would be a good guest on.
