    Passion & Business: Match Made in Heaven or Hell?

    Passion & Business: Match Made in Heaven or Hell?

    How many times have you said the words, “You should sell these?” to someone after experiencing their creativity? We all have. Let’s admit it. We’re built to think about selling things that we’re good at. From our handiwork to our speaking skills, whenever you’re good at something, the highest compliment seems to be, “You’re good enough to sell this! Start a business!”
    But should we?
    Today we talk to THREE business owners about this very topic. Our special guest, Caleb Guilliams, runs the successful Better Wealth YouTube channel and podcast. OG runs a successful financial advisory firm, and our newest roundtable regular, Paulette Perhach, operates a successful writing/coaching operation. Does it make sense to mix your passion with your business? What are the surprises you encounter if you even try? We’ll cover all of that PLUS continue our yearlong trivia contest between our contributors on today’s show.

    Deeper dives with curated links, topics, and discussions are on our newsletter, The 201, available at StackingBenjamins.com/201.

    Dump Your Time Management System!

    Dump Your Time Management System!

    What if your time management system was actually holding you back? Richie Norton learned the hard way that most time management systems help you complete more tasks but do nothing to help you improve your life. He created the anti-time management system out of necessity. After losing a child and a brother-in-law, he needed to focus on living more rather than just "doing" more. Today he'll teach us key ideas to help you live a fuller, richer life.
    But that's not all! In our headline segment we dive into a new product on Wall Street...the single stock exchange-traded fund. Do you need to add this to your portfolio? How does it work and who is it for? We'll answer all of those questions...along with a question from a man from Australia (or not), who wonders about what to do with 529 funds AFTER his children have finished college. Can he just take the money out and spend it?
    Of course, we'll also share Doug's amazing trivia, and so much more.

    Choosing To Prosper During Huge Life Changes (with Bola Sokunbi)

    Does your professional, personal, or financial life sometimes feel out of control? Us too, which is why we wanted to chat with Bola Sokunbi, creator of Clever Girl Finance and author of a new book, Choosing To Prosper. To improve her financial and personal life, she endured a 3-hour commute, planned two weddings, and navigated the tough decision about when to have children. It's an exciting and empowering discussion about taking control of your finances and career.
    Even if you've done a good job saving for retirement, we have headlines you'll want to hear. A recent Wall Street Journal piece explains why your planning job should be about far more than the money. We talk about mindset and values around your retirement goals. We'll also answer Marisa's question about what to do with her old 401k account, and of course, Doug will share his trivia.

    Strategies To Build a Richer Life (with Ramit Sethi)

    Strategies To Build a Richer Life (with Ramit Sethi)

    Why do so many people focus on managing time, and yet so few achieve a rich life? What exactly does a rich life mean to you, and are you building a bridge toward it?
    Ramit Sethi's book, I Will Teach You To Be Rich, is a huge success and he now joins us to share lessons from a new journal he's releasing to accompany his bestselling work. He'll walk us through how to actually envision that rich life and how to take steps to achieve it. He also dives into the psychology behind building a life you love, why numbers and math aren't everything, and how to create your money vision.
    In our headline segment, we take a deep dive into Best Buy's recent earnings call. Not necessarily because of the numbers they reported, but for how they are controlling the controllable. We'll explain. We also answer Paul's question about moving overseas once he retires and Doug shares his trivia.

Great interview with Sam Dogen

It was great to get the OG of the FIRE movement on, ie Sam Dogen of Financial Samurai, and to give him the love and respect that he deserves. I really love the analytical way Sam thinks about dilemmas and tries to make lemonade during difficult times. Having more diverse guests with different ideas is great. Please keep it up!

Dudes in the basement

Basically guys I’d just hang out with, cause I like goofy nerd types. The fact that I think their jokes are funny makes me question my own sense of humor. For entertainment purposes only: goal reached. Particularly entertaining if you like riding your lawn mower, a beer in your cup holder. And hey, I might have learned something too. Sorry to disappoint. But seriously, these guys bring a laugh every time I tune in.

If you want to hear the guys constantly talk over Paula…this is the show for you!
