Ever look at yourself in the mirror? Of course you have! How many times have you had to tell that person looking back at you to get out of the way? If you’re like us, A TON. Mel Robbins discovered that one simple gesture in the morning can make all the difference in our decisions. She’ll share details of her own journey ugly to success after financial hardship and how five seconds and high fives changed her outlook. High fives aren’t just for big accomplishments or a way to communicate with friends. You can (and should) give yourself a high five every day for all the successes in your life, no matter how insignificant they may seem. Mel dives into the science behind how these small habits changed her life and how they can change yours too.
We are back teaching your about annuities during our headline and one annuity company is pleading to independent financial advisors to give their products another shot. Annuities aren’t always painted in the best light and we’ll hear what this company is doing to change that. During our Magnify Money voicemail, Roy wants to pick Joe and OG’s brains about their asset allocation. And of course we’ll include some of Doug’s trivia.
We couldn’t bring you three shows a week without our sponsors!
