How do you create big wins? Of course, you track all of the little wins and build a solid foundation. That’s why we’re excited to talk today to NASCAR star Corey LaJoie about themes from his new Stacking Pennies podcast. While he drives a car alone, he’s a small part of a team of people who all have to do the little things right to achieve big success on the track. Plus, “Stacking Pennies”? You know why we had to talk to Corey.
We don’t want to alarm you, but in case you’ve been living in a bubble, inflation has been horrible on many items, like lumber, new and used cars, computer chips, and even chicken. While the small story is that this may not be the best time to buy a car or refinish your home, the bigger story is that inflation is the silent killer of “safe money” sitting in bank accounts. We’ll talk through why you want to think differently about risk today.
Plus, of course, we’ll share another eye-roll TikTok moment, answer a listener’s question on the Haven Life line, and dive in to some of Doug’s Memorial Day trivia.
