    Camilo and Francisco Maldonado are the Finance Twins. Most people think money is confusing unless you are an accountant. We used to think that too. After working incredibly hard and catching several lucky breaks, we realized so many people are looking for ways to learn about personal finance, how to manage money, and how to get out of crippling debt. They have tons of tools and resources as well as countless articles that have everything you need to start your path to financial freedom.

    An Excerpt From Transparent Investing: How to Play the Stock Market Without Getting Played by Patrick Geddes

    An Excerpt From Transparent Investing: How to Play the Stock Market Without Getting Played by Patrick Geddes

    An excerpt from the book Transparent Investing: How to Play the Stock Market Without Getting Played by Patrick Geddes
    Episode 1893: An Excerpt From Transparent Investing: How to Play the Stock Market Without Getting Played by Patrick Geddes
    The investment industry wants you to believe in stock market wizards who can predict the future and make a killing for you. But there’s a simpler way to invest using indexing that offers better returns and less stress—no crystal ball needed.
    We all know from experience that rational thoughts often lose out to primal cravings: if someone handed you a plate of chocolate cake and a plate of broccoli right now, which would you instinctively reach for?
    When investing, you face this same tension between the part of your brain that longs for the sweet, satisfying allure of beating the market versus the rational and wise part that chooses the boring solution offering better results. You also face an uphill battle against an industry that makes more money selling you the finance equivalent of chocolate cake.
    This is the truth the investment industry doesn’t want you to know: a low-cost passive portfolio not only earns you higher returns on average than active investing (the kind that makes them the most money) but is also shockingly simple to build and manage. Smart investing doesn’t have to be intimidating or as complicated as the faux wizards behind the curtain want you to believe. With Transparent Investing, you’ll learn how the game works and how to achieve your investment goals with far less study, time, and anxiety than you might think.

Amazing Content!

Diania do such a good job covering a variety of topics. The guests offer valuable insight as well. I would recommend this podcast to anyone looking to be inspired and informed!

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.

Content very good. Issue is host.

I enjoy all the podcasts in this series. Diana has a nice voice and is enthusiastic. My frustration is that she isn’t yet very knowledgeable about the concepts and she doesn’t seem to recognize that there is much she doesn’t know yet. Her commentary seems so self congratulatory sometimes- and while I’m happy that she is on a path she is excited about- a bit less of the humble brag would go a long way.
