How to YOLO Your Side Hustle Game with Dave from Wealthenial- Episode 032
How graduating during the recession taught this millennial to hustle.
There is no sugar coating it, millennials are broke. We have the highest average student loan debt balance, and most of us graduated into the great recession when jobs were scarce. While the economy has luckily seen some growth, the recession is still fresh on our minds, scaring us away from investing, real estate, and risks.
Dave, from Wealthenial, discusses how the recession shaped his relationship with money, debt, and side hustles.
Graduating during the peak of recession taught this millennial the importance of saving money and paying off debt, and how his new relationship with money led him to some risky side hustles. We are so excited to have Dave on this week! This episode is PACKED with tips on debt, investing (even real estate investing!), and tackling student loans.
Dave also dives into:
* What it was like to graduate into the recession
* Whether or not grad school was worth it

I love this podcast! I am an older millennial, and this podcast offers lots of fresh commentary for those of us in our 20’s and 30’s. I love that it gives practical advice and tips on how to make a better life for yourself. Keep up the great work!!
The perfect combination of fun and knowledge!
Steph and Erik do it right when it comes to bringing personal finance to the younger generation while keeping them entertained.
Opposites attract and it is great to listen to opposite sides of almost every situation during the show.
Great lessons and very relatable.
Two Complex Grown Ups!
Conflict can be a great seed for creativity. That sums up the way I hear and enjoy the conversations on this podcast. Sometimes they slam each other back and forth so hard, but they are actually wise old souls with maturity (but you’d never guess it by the humble way they talk down about themselves sometimes). Deprecating humor aside, these two are full of useful information and thought-provoking material to help millennials like me. They couldn’t be more different from each other, but they are bonded together by the way they strive to learn and grow. If I need a walk after work that can offer a good laugh (and remind me I’m not 100 years old), I listen to an episode.
