Many think that the people who write about money on the internet were either born with a special “saving and investing” gene, or they had to grind their way to the top. The good news? Our guest today, The Humble Dollar’s Jonathan Clements (and former Wall Street Journal Personal Finance columnist) shares tales from some of the top writers on his site and how they stumbled their way to victory. We talk about paying down debt, investing wisely, rent vs. buy, and much, much more.
In our headline segment, a new study shows what product mix changes financial advisors intend to use with clients in the next twelve months. Can their tweaks help you with your own money? We’ll share. Plus, in our TikTok minute, two creators have found a way to get rich quick: rob a bank…but creatively! You’ll hear it here.
Of course, we’ll also share Doug’s mind-bending trivia and much, much more! Enjoy!
Deeper dives with curated links, topics, and discussions are in our newsletter, The 201, available at StackingBenjamins.com/201.
