Great Breadth of Knowledge!
This is the first place I look when looking for any financial info, whether it’s investing. budgeting, or looking to make a big purchase. It is such an accessible and trustworthy source of the basic info for a huge variety of money topics. I recommend it to so many people!
This is one of the best money shows I have ever heard. She is clear, concise, and explores the nuances of finances (she looks at all the sides of an issue, i.e., not just pay off all debt because it matters what the debt is for, the interest rate, and whether it is tax deductible, etc.). She also covers all of the topics that I find my self googling because some of the advice out there is a bit too cut and dry. It’s money, it’s complicated, and there are multiple tactics to improve your finances. I wish more planners covered the alternatives when giving advice in their shows. I get tired of walking away from reading/hearing something and saying to myself, “That’s not my situation”. Laura is giving you tools to apply to your situation, not just pie in the sky answers that won’t benefit you where you are in your financial life.
