    FastCompany Dives into Women & Work (Plus, New Retirement Laws Coming?)

    FastCompany Dives into Women & Work (Plus, New Retirement Laws Coming?)

    We dive deep today into the creation of a new podcast series from FastCompany about women and work FastCompany scoured the nation to find mother/daughter pairs to tell their own stories of the world of work. How they created the series is a testament to the power of working toward excellence, but the topic itself is also beyond compelling. 43% of women leave the workforce after having children, which is disturbingly often not always their preferred choice. Today we talk with Kate Davis, FastCompany Deputy Editor about the American Dream and women and what we all can do to improve our ability to earn more and to help others earn. While it's true that you can't change history, women often face challenges today in the workplace that should have been resolved years ago, so we discuss what we can do now. We'll also share clips from several of those women, and Kate offers additional research and solutions based on her work.
    Is Congress bringing some changes to retirement plans? It looks likely, though currently the government is sitting on the Secure 2.0 bill with a deadline just a few weeks away. We'll talk about the changes proposed in the bill and how to get your retirement savings on track whether or not this legislation passes. We'll also answer Timmy's question about brokered CDs and Doug will share his trivia.

    How Much Should I Tip?

    How Much Should I Tip?

    What is your tipping etiquette? Tipping at restaurants is more straightforward than tipping at a coffee shop or when you order takeout. Even more complicated is tipping for services like hair salons or your trash service provider. How do you determine how much to tip and when? Our roundtable today shares their thoughts. Barbara Sloan (Tipped Finance), Len Penzo (len penzo dot com), and OG join us to talk about their tipping habits. They also talk about tipping in unusual situations and what to do when someone swings the iPad around for you to add a tip. And, of course, Doug will continue his tipping-themed trivia for our annual competition.

Stacking Benjamin’s FTX coins

I’m not sure why I listen to the show, I haven’t learned a thing in several years now! Joe just rambles on about board games and his trip to Bavaria… OG is just grumpy and seemingly upset at the world! The only real ray of hope in the show is Doug! He carries the show week after week and the man cannot even get a tshirt! But seriously great financial conversations/topics with a bit of humor, great show and great cast!

The perfect combination

Three words: creative, knowledgeable, hilarious. You have thousands of sources to choose from to become knowledgeable about personal finance, investing, and success. Why not get it all from the same source?! While still covering the basics at times, the hosts and guests take it to the next level without feeling like your in an Econ 101 lecture hall. If you’re ready to move beyond ‘debt bad, investing good’ SB is a solid choice. Sarcasm, seriousness, and stellar guests make it fun to become financially literate, instead of a chore.

Doug 2024.

I kept telling my Father-in-law that I’m voting for Doug in the next election because I want a country run by some random Joe Shmoe’s neighbor. As a political advocate for a party that 50% of the country hates… he was not amused. The only way to get our man a respective margin compared to all other candidates is to provide him with a SB shirt.

Apart from the trivia… there is some good banter. Would listen to again.
