    Where do your best money habits come from? As a kid, did you have chores and earn an allowance? Were you told all debt is bad? Or maybe your family never talked about money growing up? Our guest today grew up with family mantra that she can still recite perfectly today, a "repenting bench," and a chore list that required bidding and negotiation. Paige Cornetet learned awesome lessons from her father as a kid about money AND life. He taught Paige and her three siblings in a way that was fun and engaging. Paige shares some of those lessons today and ways to help teach your own family, friends, or yourself about money.

    How to Look and Feel Like a Stacker

    Have you looked through your closet lately? Have you closely examined the people around you? Today's guest's father married the two once, when he told her, "Your friends are like the clothes in your closet." Jen Principe is a stylist for the stars, whose passion for fashion started at a young age. While now her life seems perfect, Jen's childhood was a horrible mix of abuse, alcohol, getting kicked out of school, and more. Still, it was fashion that saved her life and to use her words, her "soul." She's here today to share her story and the personal and professional lessons we can use to brush up our wardrobe.
    During our headline segment, we share some sad news about Robinhood, and their announcement that they're laying off a large part of their staff.

We also answer Joe's question about downsizing from two trucks to one and Doug shares his trivia.
