I’m personally excited for you to hear this episode. When this first aired I personally was going through some really dark stuff…and as always happens, I found a book that spoke to me and helped me through it. I needed to change. I needed a wake up call. Maybe you do, too. I was lucky that I found Cortney’s book and wondered, “Would she come on the show and talk about this?” I’m grateful that she did. Of course, the rest of the episode is a lot of fun, as always. – Joe.
Here’s the original show notes from 2017:
Where do you start when planning your money? Cortney McDermott, author of one of this year’s hottest self help and business books, joins us in the basement talk about starting out. If you don’t know what you want, how do you know where to go? Yet, most of us don’t ask ourselves the right questions to even begin the journey.
Plus, we’ll also share headlines from the world of financial planning, throw out the Haven Life line to a lucky listener, score with some of Doug’s delightful trivia, and more.
