    How Can Your Child Avoid Student Loans with Brad Baldridge

    How Can Your Child Avoid Student Loans with Brad Baldridge

    #047 With inflation and gas prices at an all-time high, it’s time for us to become more aware of our spending, avoid unnecessary expenses, and decrease the amount of debt we’re incurring. One of the major types of debt Americans incur comes in the form of student loans for higher education… and they often stick around for many years! So, how can we help our children avoid student loan debt? Today’s guest is going to teach you! 
     
    Meet Brad Baldridge, a college funding specialist and college planning expert who helps parents navigate college planning and expenses through his private practice, blog, and his podcast, Taming the High Cost of College.
     
    In this episode, Brad explains why it’s so easy to get into student loan debt, how to find the best college for your budget, and realistic ways to help your child pay for college without incurring a large student loan debt. Is it worth going into debt for a college education? Listen in to hear Brad’s candid thoughts on the value of a college degree compared to skipping college and going right into the workforce. Plus, Brad shares a few tactics, like hiring a coach, that will help your kids plan their college education, pick their major(s), and get the most bang for their buck.
     
    “It’s a complicated game and you’ve got to understand the rules so that you can use the rules to your advantage… Colleges are a business. It’s their job to help you go to college but it’s not their job to keep your costs as low as possible.”          - Brad Baldridge

    What is Your Why?

    What is Your Why?

    #046 What do you know? We all back the month of February has just flown by what have you done this month? That is interesting. Are you still sticking to your new year's resolution? Because this is the time where everyone quits, some people quit and don't even realize that they quit. The reason I'm talking about this is because I had a conversation with a person about two weeks.
     And we was having a conversation about the show and he doesn't plan to teach his kids about any financial literacy. Doesn't have the time to do it at all. Now his main reason for this is because he figures that he grew up fine and his kids will grow up just fine. The thought he just feels flat out through the course of life.
    His children will just pick it up and we'll be okay, just like. So essentially for him, he did not have the why to go above and beyond to try to teach his children about financial literacy. And that's what we're going to talk about today.

    Helping And Teaching Real Estate To The Future

    Helping And Teaching Real Estate To The Future

    #044 Is real estate a good form of investment for families? Should kids be learning about real estate from a young age? Spoiler! The answer is yes.
     Meet Whitney Chaffin, a speaker, investor, philanthropist, realtor, and mother who provides people with second chances through real estate. In this episode, Whitney talks about the first steps to take when teaching your kids about real estate investment and getting them involved in this wealth-building asset class. Whitney highlights the impacts she’s been able to make in her community as a result of her investments and shares powerful resources you can use to educate yourself about real estate investing.
     “The biggest thing is honestly personal development skills. As you get into the real estate side of things, you really learn who you are because this business is not easy… When you start to see how this business and these traits can really allow for you to have that financial freedom, it is very hard to go back to the workforce and so you get this motivation that you won’t settle.”                                                                                                -Whitney Chaffin
     Many people think that real estate is a rich person’s game, but as Whitney says, it’s not about being rich, it’s about being smart and thinking differently. Whether you want to invest in real estate, stocks, or cryptocurrency, financial literacy and education is the first step to financial freedom. Are you interested in learning how to invest in real estate and make it a part of your child’s financial freedom? Check out Whitney’s recommended resources below and connect with her to learn more!

    Empowering Women Through Life Hurdles

    Empowering Women Through Life Hurdles

    #043 With divorce rates climbing and more women consciously choosing the singlelife, more women are providing for themselves (and often their children, too). Unfortunately, too many women are unprepared to take on financial responsibilities all by themselves… and it’s not necessarily their fault. As parents, it’s our responsibility to prevent that from happening to our daughters. Let’s empower the future generations of women to be financially confident and free! Here’s how…
     Today’s guest, Jayne Ellegard, is inspiring financial confidence in women by empowering them to take charge of their financial literacy and reach their financial goals. Jayne is the Founder and Coach at Ellegant Wealth, where she provides keynote speeches, workshops and coaching about financial education, specifically focused on women. 
     In this episode of Raising Financial Freedom, Jayne teaches you how to teach your daughters about money and empower them to cultivate financial freedom. She highlights her journey to becoming an entrepreneur and insights she’s gained on how to raise confident and financially responsible daughters. 
     “I want women to feel empowered around their financial situation and I do think that women haven’t been provided the education that we need and we don’t talk about it… When they gain confidence in this area, it also spreads into other aspects of their life.”  - Jayne Ellegard
     Understanding money and finances isn’t as difficult as people think it is, so there needs to be a mindset shift so women can feel invited to the table to engage in conversation about wealth management.
