    This time of year is filled with shopping and you eventually will end up bringing the kids, and they will want something and not get it.

To talk about this Matt has Alisa Weinstein on the show. Alisa is a financial and lifelong planner and will help us understand how we can teach children about these financial matters but still retain the magic of santa and Christmas. Stay tuned later in the show for one matt's own coaching corners on what really matters during this time of the year. We hope you have a merry christmas season from us here at the Matt Townsend Show!

Amazing !

Matt thank you so much for helping and coaching so many people (especially ME)
I happened to stumble upon you on YouTube and ever since then I’ve been hooked ! I always joke around and tell my friends “Gosh, I wish Matt was my best friend 😂 I need all that positivity” and seriously I couldn’t believe you had a podcast which I listen to everyday ! I love the variety I get to listen about on your podcast along with the advice and ideas you throw in between subjects.

You have helped my thinking and outlook on lots of things that surround my daily life! Thank you so much.
