Save more than you spend, don’t take on a mountain of debt, living below your means… they’re all phrases that the financially-savvy might take for granted, but let’s be honest. Most of us didn’t start out that way. Today we ask our contributors: what are some money lessons you had to learn the hard way? On today’s show we’ll hear some sage advice from Jen Smith (from the Frugal Friends podcast), Doc G (from the Earn & Invest podcast), and Len Penzo… of LenPenzo.com. A special thanks to David Bakke from money management site, MoneyCrashers.com, for reading today’s featured piece.
After our discussion on life lessons, we’ll ring up Angelo Poli from the health and fitness gurus at Metpro. Even though COVID may be keeping you from your local gym, Angelo will share some great financially-minded tips on how you can still maintain your health at home without breaking the budget. PLUS, we’re answering some questions listeners left for Angelo in the Stacking Benjamins Facebook group. By the way, if YOU want to be involved next time, you can join us here: The Basement
Later, our contributors will weigh in on our Twitter poll: for people who were formerly bad with money, what inspired you to change? Just like in our title segment, you’ll find that some super-savers have always had a special affection for finances, but others (talking about me here), have come to terms with their bad habits a little differently.
As always, we’ll save some time for Doug’s Friday Gameshow. Hope you enjoy it as much as we had fun making it!
