Bob is a true expert

Bob is not only brilliant when it comes to all things money, but he’s also a very insightful podcast host who’s great at listening; that’s a rare thing! A+ show, keep it up!

New Money Perspectives

Bob is personable and fun to listen to. He explores a broad range of money-related topics and isn’t afraid to discuss controversial ideas. He is very frank about his personal journey with money, which makes him easy to relate to. Bonus points for frequently featuring women on the show!

Loved the Experience. Just made ‘cents’ ;)

I must say, listening to the podcast is one thing but being a guest on Bob’s show was an absolute treat. I was very intimidated to talk about money- (I am an multiple entrepreneur who feels like I’ve not been so successful (yet) in that department). Bob created a very safe space for me to openly confess LOL and talk about my issues around money. And then he offered some ‘rich’ pieces of advice and tips and consolation with regard to me knowing and understanding and being reminded that I’m not the only one out there and there is a solution. I’m on my way, Bob!
Thank you again for the experience!
