If you’re lucky enough to have a job now, and you’ve been still chasing your dream, what does your “finish line” look like? You won finance! Hooray! With everything you want behind you, what’s next? Answering these questions and more are today’s contributors: Jennifer Grimson from the Micro Empires podcast; Len Penzo from the LenPenzo.com blog, and our own Stacking Benjamins podcast co-host, OG. While the question seems nice and someday-ish, I think today you’ll find that you’re closer to “enough” than you may think.
Halfway through the show we’ll break from our conversation and move over to your wellness checkup. Like Suze Orman said (in a number of words), what do riches mean without your health? During this week’s middle segment, we take a quick break from FinTech to cover health and wellness with MetPro’s co-founder Angelo Poli, who will break down how important proper nutrition really is – both for your health AND your bottom line.
What’s your next step when you’re at absolute zero? No cash, no residence, no job? That’s what our contributors have been tasked to help with today, and our special guest Jennifer Grimson is the perfect person to ask. Jennifer has had to start from zero… TWICE. Today Jennifer and our panel share what you should do when you find yourself starting with nowhere to turn.
As always, we’ll save some airtime halfway through for Doug’s game show. Doug will start out with a freebie: The country of Nigeria commands the largest GDP in Africa. The question? How much is it?

Friday Fintech Segment: Metpro
In the words of Suze Orman: what’s all the money in the world without your health? It’s not difficult to get tunnel-vision on the bottom line, but it’s important to give your health the same love you give your wallet. That’s why we love having Angelo Poli on the podcast.

If any of our panel knows what it’s like to have to start from nothing its Jennifer Grimson, and she’s done it twice! It’s a good thing we have her on board, because today’s question (which comes from Reddit), is a tough one.
The poster is a 18 year-old high school student who got kicked out of their home, and they’re looking for the next step. While we certainly will specific advice to this situation, we’ll also share some fantastic information for anyone in this unfortunate situation.
