Great podcast!

This podcast is my #1 suggestion for people who want to start learning about finance and how to manage their money. Brian and Bo do a fantastic job teaching foundational money concepts. I particularly enjoy their shows that concentrate on one topic.

Great Financial Show for Those that Want to Go a Few Step’s Deeper than Dave Ramsey

I am a huge Dave Ramsey fan, but I feel like his advise is kinda surfacey and designed for people that don’t have any discipline. Don’t get me wrong I’ve followed the Ramsey Steps and it has gotten my wife and I at a great spot, but these guys take it to the next level. They understand credit cards aren’t the devil if used wisely, they get into the nuts and bolts of where to put your money and why, they share tax tips, and all that. I really like the show a lot. Only issue I have with it is they are constantly pushing 25% savings into retirement and I feel like that’s aspirational and only for high income or dual income families. My wife and I have a tight budget and don’t have anything extravagant. No car payments, humble home, barely eat out, we tithe, etc. But there is no way we could save 25%. We are scraping to get just over 15% saved into a Roth. That is likely because we are a one income household, but at times I feel like they can be out of touch. They are adjusting some due to this inflationary environment, but I’d like them to speak to us that don’t have six figure incomes from time to time. I’m in a good career and working my way up, but still not at the six figure mark with my full time job and a good side hustle. Overall, I really like the money guy show and highly recommend. I plan to use them as I get into the abundance phase of my life and have already referred others that are ahead of me on the curve. Thanks for the show guys. And Bo, you may want to start off with something other than, “I so excited about this topic.” lol.

Good Nickname Needed ,

Best Financial Podcast!

They GET it! The information is invaluable. This isn’t the old just spend less than you make. Put 20% down. Never buy a new car. Financial advice so many cram down our throats. They bring the nuance. They bring the acknowledgment of the messy middle and the difficulties of getting into the home owning game and they bring real financial advice to folks. Don’t wait until you can afford it all to start making big financial decisions. Start listening to this podcast and start wherever you can. You’ll be amazed at where you’ll be at In a year. I can’t wait for us to have enough in our retirement accounts to let them take over and give back after all the great financial advice.
