    Personal Finance, Dancing, and Knowing Your Worth | Chloe Daniels

    Personal Finance, Dancing, and Knowing Your Worth | Chloe Daniels

    Today's episode features Chloé Daniels, founder of Clo Bare Money Coach.



    Chloé is a money coach and focuses her time on helping people learn how to invest and build wealth the lazy way. 



    Her ultimate goal is to provide education in a fun, easy-to-understand, and accessible way and is known for her Reels and TikToks that showcase her hilarious dance moves while also providing finance tips.



    Despite her current success, Chloé didn't start out with so much confidence and knowledge about money. 



    There was a time (back in 2017) when she struggled to see a path toward paying off her student loans.



    In 2018, things started to change as she began budgeting and getting deeper into the financial space.



    Things took off quickly and in 2021 she quit the workforce to pursue financial coaching full-time and is on track to retire in her 40s!



    Chloé does this all in such a relatable way that comes across as fun and non-intimidating.



    If you've been looking for someone to make personal finance fun for you, Chloé might be just the person for you (seriously, her dances are hilarious).

    Mapping Retirement with Projection Lab | Kyle Nolan

    Today's episode features Kyle Nolan, creator of Projection Lab.



    Kyle already had the skills to develop web-based applications when he discovered the world of financial independence.



    What he didn't have and couldn't find was a financial planning tool that felt modern, flexible, and engaging.



    So he just decided to build his own!



    Projection Lab allows you to create beautiful and nuanced financial plans that truly represent you, your loved ones, and the paths you choose.



    You get to run Monte Carlo simulations, backtest on historical data, and figure out how to live your best life and reduce anxiety around your finances.



    I can't over-emphasize the word robust here.



    Back door Roths, multiple drawdown strategies, SEPP distributions, loan forgiveness, cash flow priorities...the list goes on and on and on.



    Kyle has built this beautiful web app all by himself and kept data protection at the forefront.



    And you can utilize this tool for free!



    The premium mode adds persistent data, tax estimation,  advanced tax options,  Sankey cash flow,  visualizations, and Developer support for $8/month (20% off with code "FISHOW").

    From $5K to $250K per Month with a Service Business | Irvin Aguilar

    From $5K to $250K per Month with a Service Business | Irvin Aguilar

    Today's episode features Irvin Aguilar who took AGR Landscaping from a small-time company making $5k per month to a money-making machine hitting $250k in recent months.



    Irvin saw his dad struggling and found himself struggling with college as well.



    It turned out to be the perfect opportunity to inject some small but powerful changes into his dad's business.



    He saw how a language gap, poor marketing, and unfair contracts were holding his dad back.



    In very little time, it went from a business that helped the family scrape by to a thriving business.



    Irvin didn't stop there though. He's now flipped 6 houses in just a few months and is also getting into short-term rentals.

    How She’s Made $1.5M on Fiverr | Alex Fasulo

    Today's episode features Alex Fasulo, author of Freelance Your Way to Freedom.



    Long-time listeners may remember Alex from episode 48.



    At the time, she was making over $350k per year on Fiverr. But Alex was also working insane hours.



    It eventually became clear that she needed to build a team around her to make this sustainable.



    Today, she's built a mostly hands-off business that doesn't require her to work 12+ hours per day.



    But of course, Alex didn't stop there, she decided she needed to build a blueprint that anyone could follow to follow in her footsteps.



    And she covers it all in her new book, Freelance Your Way to Freedom.



    Whether you're looking to start freelancing or scale your existing business to new heights, Alex has you covered.
