Don’t talk to strangers. Make your savings automatic. Don’t buy so many lattes. How many pieces of unsolicited advice have helped you become a better version of yourself? Today our contributors are helping us walk through a recent blog post that delivered exactly 68 pieces of advice to help you live a better life financially AND mentally. Helping us with today’s show are our near-and-dear contributors: Elle Martinez (of Couple Money), Len Penzo of LenPenzo.com, and our very own OG.
Halfway through the show we’ll take a break from the unsolicited advice (that you should totally listen to by the way), and we’ll learn some strategies on keeping your children engaged and responsible while everyone is stuck at home. During our Fintech segment, Gregg Murset of BusyKid will also share how his app can help your family learn better habits, and put their allowance to good use by teaching them to save, give, and be a part of a community.
Ever hear the phrase, “just because you can, doesn’t mean you should”? A few weeks ago we asked our friends on Twitter to give us their best answer… but with finances in mind. During our Magnify Money segment we’ll share our favorite replies, and our contributors will even share a few of their own answers.
One last note: Remember the story in the news recently about the elderly man who ejected himself from the French fighter jet? We won’t give away too much, but Doug has some heart-pounding trivia for you on today’s show. Today’s podcast is another high flier! Enjoy!
