    I’m Overwhelmed with Investment Decisions

    I’m Overwhelmed with Investment Decisions

    It is so easy to become overwhelmed with what feels like a never ending stream of new stocks and cryptocurrencies to invest in. But, what about the boring old foundational concepts of personal finance? Are you neglecting those for a chance to “get rich quick”? This week I’m joined by the one and only Berna Anat to break down why it’s important to bring our finances back to basics before we start throwing money at any of these new investments out there.

    Should I Keep My Money Separate From My Partner?

    Should I Keep My Money Separate From My Partner?

    Should you merge finances with your significant other or keep everything separate?
    There’s nothing like a little financial weight being lifted when you decide to share living expenses with someone! That being said, is it smart to still keep a small stash of your own coin? I was recently a guest on KFI AM640 where Kelvin Washington and I discussed finding a happy medium.

    The Credit Score is Overrated

    Would you rather have a perfect credit score or $100,000?
    This week I’m joined by Kevin Matthews to discuss why we sometimes place so much emphasis on the credit score and what other areas of our finances we should treat with just as much, if not more, importance.

Quick and informative

I love the format of this show and I almost always learn something.

Nicteomom ,

“Popcorn” is my goto “snack” on the drive home!

Loveee this podcast! So much digestible information in a short amount of time (without all the small talk). I love the guests that Chris hosts and how he intertwines some of his own experiences/feedback to make the topics even more relatable!

BoloMay ,

God- Sent!!

This Podcast is awesome! Where have you been all my life?! Chris and all of his guests provide invaluable information about finances. I especially love how they cut out all of the “fluff “ and get right to the point. It’s amazing how so much useful information is packed in such a short timeframe. I saved a few episodes already so I can re-listen and apply the advice ASAP! Keep up the good work Chris!
