Worried it’s next to impossible to get your finances in order by this point? What if I told you it could happen by Thanksgiving? (For those of you caught in the infamous 2020 haze, that’s a little more than a month away). Today our roundtable crew share their personal tricks of the trade they employ to manage their budget, lower their expenses, and keep charge of their finances. Joining us on our roundtable is the mind behind the Own Your Money brand and Stacking Benjamins’ partner in our Making Money Easy course, Belinda Rosenblum; Kevin Payne from the popular Family Money Adventure blog; and basement regular Len Penzo… from the aptly named Len Penzo dot com blog.
After our contributors finish sharing their top finance tips, we’ll give them a break while we shine some light on small businesses and what they’ve been experiencing this year. Helping us shine that spotlight is Kabbage co-founder, Kathryn Petralia. Kabbage was the second biggest PPP loan provider, and Kathryn will share the mistakes she’s seen businesses make, what businesses should be doing right now, and what we can maybe expect in the future.
We’ll finish out the show with our MagnifyMoney segment – our caller Jambalaya wants to self-insure his health costs. He breaks his plan for his, and makes sure to let us know that he’s otherwise healthy. Jambalaya asks for our seal of approval: is his plan sound, or, in his words, “should I keep it simple stupid?” Our roundtable will share their thoughts on our caller’s plan.
Naturally, we’ll make some airtime for Doug’s Friday trivia game show. This week’s question? The original iPod sale price!
