    How to Be Financially Empowered | John Hope Bryant

    “There’s a difference between simply making money and building wealth. The former is what you do while you’re awake to generate cash flow. The latter is made in your sleep.” In this episode, John Hope Bryant, entrepreneur, philanthropist, author, and thought leader on financial literacy, economic empowerment and financial dignity shares how to build financial inclusion, the power of financial literacy, the #1 money lesson you need to know, and how you build wealth starting with this.

    Referred to as the Conscious of Capitalism by Ed Bastian, CEO of Delta Air Lines, and James Herbert, Chairman and CEO of First Republic Bank, John Hope Bryant is an American entrepreneur, author, philanthropist, and prominent thought leader on financial inclusion, economic empowerment, and financial dignity. He is named as Atlanta Business Chronicle’s “The Power 100: Most Influential Atlantans in 2020”, and American Banker magazine's 2016 “Innovator of the Year”, and one of Time magazine’s “50 Leaders for the Future”.

He is also the Chairman and CEO of Bryant Group Ventures and Founder and Principal of The Promise Homes Company, which is the largest minority-controlled owner of single-family rental homes in the United States. Five former U.S. presidents have recognized his work, and he has served as an advisor to three sitting U.S. presidents from both political parties. He is responsible for financial literacy becoming the policy of the U.S. federal government. He has received hundreds of awards and citations for his work, including Oprah Winfrey’s Use Your Life Award, and the John Sherman Award for Excellence in Financial Education from the U.S. Treasury.

    How to Use Renting as a Tool to Achieve Financial Freedom | Jonas Bordo

    Renting has a bad reputation. You might have heard the idea of “throwing away” your money if you’re renting. I get it, but today’s guest, Jonas Bordo, CEO and Co-Founder of Dwellsy has a different idea about renting.

    Jonas is CEO and co-founder of Dwellsy, the free residential rental marketplace that makes it easy to find hard-to-find rentals. He’s been in real estate in one way or another throughout his career and really believes that you can both rent and achieve financial freedom. In this episode he’s sharing why renting might just be the path to financial freedom, how to negotiate like a pro, how to know when you should rent or buy, and so much more.

    Get Your Money Sh*t Together | Live Podcast with Amanda Holden, Jacqueline Twillie, Whitney Hansen & Rachel Richards

    If you’re wondering, what do I need to do to get my money sh*t together, you are in the right place. This is a very special episode that was recorded live just a few weeks ago on the Fishbowl app with some of my very favorite guests.

    In this live conversation, I talk with Amanda Holden, our investing guru, aka Dumpster Doggy and creator of the Invested Development course, Rachel Richards, the queen of passive income and author of Money Honey, Jacqueline Twillie, the master negotiator, Ceo of Zerogap and author of Don’t Leave Money on the Table, and Whitney Hansen, money coach extraordinaire and host of the Money Nerds podcast.

    There is so much to learn and take away. One small disclaimer before we dive in…this was a live recording on an app, there are some occasional mic noises, etc., but we’ve done our best to smooth those out so you can sit back, grab a fav beverage and listen to these amazing women dispense life-changing money wisdom.

Strange flow but great information

It would be a 5 star podcast for me if the podcast didn’t abruptly stop in the middle of a conversation for some ads. I understand the placement but it’s strange to cut off great conversations and then restart them abruptly. After all the ads and the fan question I forget what the question before the pause was, and I was confused as to where the guest speaker went and why she’s talking about apps. The podcast shares great information and she asks great questions which I think outweighs the strangeness of the podcast layout let’s say, but the ad placement and length just doesn’t flow very well.
