    How Personal Finance Differs for the LGBTQ+ Community, with John and David Auten-Schneider

    How Personal Finance Differs for the LGBTQ+ Community, with John and David Auten-Schneider

    According to a study by Prudential Financial, 50% of LGBTQ+ people only have one banking product, while 66% of non-LGBTQ+ folks have at least 2 banking products. This statistic indicates a disparity with how the queer community engages with financial products, and it forms the topic of this week’s episode.
    With their writing and speaking for DebtFreeGuys.com, their microblog, DebtLasso.com, and The Queer Money® podcast, David Auten and John Schneider help queer people live fabulously, and not fabulously broke. David and John’s work has appeared in Forbes, Yahoo Finance, CNBC, ABC News and Good Morning America to name a few. Their goal is to connect LGBTQ+ people with the information and services they need so they and the queer community can do more and be more. They join me this week to discuss the various challenges LGBTQ+ people face in the workplace, and in their personal finances.

    How to Give Your Finances a Fighting Chance, with Doug Allan

    How to Give Your Finances a Fighting Chance, with Doug Allan

    One of the biggest mistakes we make with money is not paying more attention to our finances at a young age. After all, who wants to worry about saving for retirement when you’re in high school or college. At that age, money is meant for fun, right?
    My guest this week is a Chartered Professional Accountant who has a passion for financial literacy. He believes that the education system has done a disservice to our youth by omitting important financial concepts from school curriculums. Doug Allan has just released the book, A Fighting Chance: The high school finance education everyone deserves, and he sat down with me to talk about this important topic.

    How to Make Money With Niche Websites, with Spencer Haws

    How to Make Money With Niche Websites, with Spencer Haws

    In the past, I’ve been pretty tough on blogging as a side hustle, because I know how long it can take to make money. Every once in a while, however, a guest joins the show and reminds me that with some hard work, and perhaps a little luck, just about anyone can turn a website into a real business.
    Spencer Haws can be found blogging and podcasting at NichePursuits.com where he shares what he learns about building niche sites, SEO, and much more. Spencer quit his corporate job in 2011 because his niche sites were making more money than his day job. He joins me this week to explain what exactly a niche site is, and how they make money.

High quality all-around

I appreciate the variety of episodes, the super practical takeaways, and the sincere humility Todd brings to every interview.

Money magic!

Tom and his wide variety of knowledgeable guests are making financial management a fascinating task rather than a finicky chore! The great content and advice they provide, combined with the relatable way in which they deliver it had me hooked from the very first listen. Thanks for putting out such a stellar show Tom - keep up the great work!
