One Powerful (and simple) Tool to Reach Your Goals
How would you rate the different aspects of your life: fun & relaxation, personal & spiritual growth, business, money, health, family & friends, love & romance, and personal development? Then how much time and money do you invest in each category? Do the parts of your life that you value most match up with the parts you spend the most time and money on? Today our roundtable looks at a blog piece about spending money on what matters most to you. To help guide the conversation, we use a wheel that is used by many personal and business coaches to help categorize and visualize your life. We have a free download of that wheel below for you to follow along. Kyle Landis-Marinello, Paula Pant and Len Penzo join our roundtable today to discuss what they value most and how they spend their money on those aspects of their life.
You Have More Than You Think (plus: drunk traded lately?)
Studies show that our biggest enemy is often the one between our own ears. It can be hard to get out of your own head at times. Joyce Marter joins us today to talk about limiting beliefs and how we can practice an abundance mindset to be more successful. She is a psychotherapist, entrepreneur, author and speaker and sold her own business (that she'd started for $500) for many times more than what she expected--and multiple millions of dollars--once she got advice from others and got out of her own way.
During our headline, we talk to Kamaron McNair about a piece she wrote for Magnify Money about investing behaviors and emotions. How many people have traded while drunk? She will let us know! She also talks about other money worries and how emotions have a play in trading and investing. We'll also throw out the Haven Life line to Mark who wants to know what you would do if you were given $100k in Bitcoin. Joe and OG will fill us in on their thoughts. And Doug will enlighten us all with his trivia!
Nice People Finish Last But Bad People Don't Win Either
Why is it that nice guys always seem to finish last? There's something that doesn't seem fair about the jerks in the world winning in business and life. Does a middle ground exist, and is that the secret spot for success? David Bodanis argues there is a middle ground and using effective listening, respect and trust techniques and practices is the secret recipe to success. He joins us today to tell some incredible stories of how these principles have played out in people's lives in the past, so you can make better decisions in the future.
Football is back--the American kind, anyway--and we dive into how one NFL team is partnering with a financial literacy firm to help educate Americans on money habits and skills to help grow their wealth. That leads to a discussion about the new Acorns SPAC, gamification in your financial plan, and meme stock performance. We'll also throw out the Haven Life line to Leah who wants to know why she's so torn about buying a house now. And to tie it all together, Doug will share some of his trivia.

I have been listening to a different podcast that Joe is a frequent guest on, Afford Anything with Paula Pant, and decided I wanted to see what else Joe had to say. I haven’t been disappointed. The shows are lighthearted and funny, usually topical to something that is currently going on in finance, and the information is provided by the hosts in a way that supports the individual investor. Highly recommended!
The Stacking Benjamin’s show is a fantastic listen. It is informational, fun, and relevant. This show helped me through one of the hardest times in my life. Being able to listen to someone talk about something I was interested in helped me push forward. I would strongly suggest this podcast, and I am so thankful for all the hard-work the staff at The Stacking Benjamin’s podcast has done. CYA!
Converted My Wife
This podcast went from me asking my wife if I could play a personal finance podcast on car trips together, to her saying that it’s ok if I played Stacking Benjamins, to her asking if we could listen to Stacking Benjamins, and finally to her insisting that I save episodes so she can listen to them in the car too. She’s not into podcasts or personal finance, but she can’t get enough of SB. That is how entertaining Stacking Benjamins is.
