    When I started podcasting in 2017, I was nervous about the technology and apprehensive about how I would sound, not sure I’d have enough to say or that anyone would want to listen. Once I started creating these episodes and receiving your feedback, all of my worries washed away. I love knowing that this show is helping so many people begin their financial journey and work their way to a financially fit future. So, in this episode, I will be sharing the top lessons that have weaved their way into this show throughout the years.

You will learn the importance of not getting swept up in your friends' spending habits, why you don’t need to follow the biggest celebrity experts' advice, and why it's important to start as soon as possible.

    “We always learn more as we take small, imperfect actions, but it doesn’t mean that we always advance. Sometimes we make missteps and need to regroup.” - Tracey Bissett

    EP248 Showcase of Young Money Scholarship Recipients

    EP248 Showcase of Young Money Scholarship Recipients

    The earlier you can master your money, the more you can make it work for you to accomplish the things you want to in life. And given that the school system doesn't do a good job of preparing young adults for the harsh economic realities they will be facing personally or as business owners, being able to support someone achieve their goals has always been my dream. So, in this episode, I am so excited to announce this round of Young Money Scholarship recipients. 
    I know firsthand the power that education can bring to help you achieve your life goals, and I know that it takes money from many different sources to pay for it. Being a believer that understanding financial matters is a fundamental life skill inspires me to find new and straightforward ways to make money make sense and increase financial confidence for the younger generation—and I hope this inspires you to do the same.

    “I’m on a mission to redefine the economic future of the world for the next century by addressing financial literacy of young adults and entrepreneurs.” - Tracey Bissett
    This Week on Young Money:
    This round of Young Money Scholarship recipients. The power of financial education. Why it is important to educate the younger generation about finances. How to bring more financial awareness to your communities. Key takeaways:
    Help others achieve their goals. Bring financial awareness into your home. Apply for scholarships. Educate yourself. Resources Mentioned:

    EP247 Buy Now, Pay Later 101

    EP247 Buy Now, Pay Later 101

    Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) arrangements are becoming an increasingly popular payment option, especially when shopping online. BNPL is a type of short-term financing that allows consumers to make purchases and pay for them at a later date, often interest-free. Although this method was traditionally used for larger, more expensive items such as vehicles and houses, this has become far more popular among a broader range of products such as clothes, groceries, and entertainment. In this episode, I am going to be discussing both the pros and the cons of this popular repayment method and what to be aware of if you choose to “pay later.”

    Listen in as I explain how Buy Now, Pay Later works and whether it is similar to making a purchase on your credit card. You will learn the importance of knowing what the repayment plans are, why you should still only buy what you truly need, and who this could positively impact to help get urgent items or budget more effectively.
    “It’s necessary to understand how your payments work so you can plan for them in your budget.” - Tracey Bissett
    This Week on Young Money:
    What BNPL is and why it is becoming so popular. What to be aware of when it comes to BNPL. Whether there is interest on repayments. How BNPL actually works. The importance of understanding the fine print of repayments. Key takeaways:
    Understand the fine print. Know the facts. Only buy what you need. Resources Mentioned:

    EP245 Young Money Listener Appreciation

    EP245 Young Money Listener Appreciation

    Financial fitness (aka financial literacy) is a fundamental life skill.  It's not about knowing everything - it's about taking those small imperfect actions that increase your foundation of financial knowledge so you can navigate your life, personally and professionally, with confidence. To me that means being comfortable asking questions, following up if you don’t understand something, being kind to yourself when you make a mistake, and approaching things from a mindset of abundance.

    In this episode, I want to celebrate you. Together we have created 245 episodes, are listened to in over 40 countries, and are approaching 250,000 downloads. Whether today is the first day you are tuning in to check out the show, you’ve been a loyal listener since the beginning or somewhere in between, I am happy you are here. Thank you for your steadfast support, continuous questions, and feedback on the show.

    “I believe that financial fitness aka financial literacy is a fundamental life skill.” - Tracey Bissett
