The average family piled up tons of credit card debt over the holiday season. If you’re included in that group, it’s your lucky day because Nick Clements from MagnifyMoney.com (our sponsor) joins us on the show to talk about how to eliminate those nagging holiday credit card bills. As always, he’ll also share inside stories about how the credit card industry works….which are horrifying (they consider regulator intervention as something “beyond their control”).
Once you’ve worked on the debt, you may want to be a fly on the wall hearing about someone else’s financial picture. Roger Whitney, CFP (and host of the Retirement Answer Man podcast) shares details about his latest project. If you like the podcast Serial but want it in financial planning form, he’s working with a listener to develop a financial plan over a series of podcasts! It all culminates in a webinar where Roger and listener “Carl” detail the strategy that’ll help him reach his goals.
One final note: the reason we asked Nick and MagnifyMoney.com to be our sponsors is because they have a product we love and a process we can recommend. We understand if you’re weary about listening to this episode because our sponsor is our guest. But if you’ve heard Nick before… AND if you listen to today’s show, you’ll see why we consider him one of our favorite guests AND a great person for us for us to align our SB brand…..
