    Big-Ticket Items: What Should You Consider? by Kristoffer Notario

    Big-Ticket Items: What Should You Consider? by Kristoffer Notario

    Kristoffer Notario of Rat Race Running talks about which big-ticket items to consider
    Episode 2188: Big-Ticket Items: What Should You Consider? by Kristoffer Notario
    Kristoffer is an electronics engineer by profession, a teacher by vocation, and a writer by mission. He used to work in a Fortune Global 500 company in the Philippines, but it didn’t take long before he realized that life in a corporate setup is like running a race you can’t win — a rat race. He finally escaped the corporate rat race in 2019 to pursue a different calling in the academic field. He envisions that his actions today will serve as a stepping stone toward obtaining more freedom in the future. He’s now a freelance writer, busy finding ways to reach out to more people toward intentional living.

    How To Strategically Use Credit Cards AND The Pain of Paying: Carrying Cash by Philip Dancy

    Philip Dancy of Dancy With Money shares how to strategically use credit cards and the pain of paying with cash.
    Episode 2186: How To Strategically Use Credit Cards AND The Pain of Paying: Carrying Cash by Philip Dancy
    Philip Dancy joined one of the top investment banking firms upon his graduation from the Five Year MBA program at Hampton University. After starting his career in New York City and getting his first check, he understood that this “adulting” life wasn’t going to be simple. However, the one thing he knew he had to do was create a budget for himself. Through a period of trial and error, Philip was able to establish a solid foundation. As a result, Philip reached a point where he was comfortable and on a trajectory towards financial freedom. Philip’s main goal is to help millennials and Gen Z’ers (but ultimately everyone) establish a strong financial foundation through coaching while helping them turn steps into strides.

Content is great, introduced ads not so much

I like the OFD podcast. I’m one of those recently introduced to the show and am listening from the earliest available episodes, working my way chronologically to the present.

And I fully respect that they went from ‘ad-free free’ to ‘free with ads’ to monetize and pay for their efforts. Nothing wrong with honest capitalism. But I do resent when the old episodes (I’m only to the beginning of 2017 now nearly six years behind but catching up) are re-engineered. Podcasters may have agreements with sponsors or just decide to ‘update’ old episodes with the ad content, but it kills my library and listening. Now I have two versions of each episode (the smaller ad-free clean one I’ve already downloaded) and an unloaded version with the ads that will only play if I’m on wifi (immediately after the downloaded one).

In my curated library, I’d have to delete the show, redownload the newly-updated archive, and continue listening. Until the show runners decide to change out who their sponsorship is and re-re-engineer the archived shows and I’m stuck with the same issue again. Podcasters - it’s bad enough that Apple will only keep your library archive going back a few hundred episodes - but now any refresh of my library will cause duplication or failed indexes where show episodes once downloaded are no longer available. Yes, the fruit company is partly to blame, but can you find a way to NOT mess with prior episodes? Please?

The Best Finance Podcast!

I just finished listening to the latest episode of Optimal Finance Daily and I have to say, it's one of the best finance podcasts out there. The guests always provide valuable insights, and I appreciate the practical advice in each episode. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone looking to learn more about the latest trends in the world of finance!

Simple & Motivating

I really like this podcast! I officially started paying off debt January of 2020 but started to fall in love with it summer of 2019. I was a huge DR fan (if you know, you know) but the show because too political and I wasn’t a fan of the direction the show was going into (cohosts). It was the catalyst to my journey and my biggest source of motivation. I’ve listened to a few other podcasts but they didn’t really do it for me. I found this one because I started listening to optimal living daily. I listen to this while I work from but I’ll also be listening when I do my side hustle(s). Not only do I have this podcast but I have new content to read. If you’re reading this, good luck achieving your financial goals.
