We’ve done a lot of episodes. At the point we recorded this officially, we’re nearly at 1,000…but when you count all of the previous podcasts, the shortened episodes that we used to NOT count, and the special events, we’re well over 1,500 episodes. Not ONCE during that time did we stop and ask ourselves, “Should we actually give people the framework that we’re working from?”
Today we do that.
Joe and OG have a frank conversation about the art of fooling around, about sharing mistakes instead of victories, and about including stories from many points of view. If you’ve listened to the Stacking Benjamins show once or a thousand times, we hope you’ll enjoy the first episode where we discuss the SB Creed.
Of course, we will STILL lean on Doug for a trivia question. We’re not heathens.

The Stacking Benjamins Creed:
- Personal finance is personal. We’re all trying to stack.
- We all have different opinions about money. We can discuss our differences without being obnoxious with each other.
- Everyone doesn’t start at the same place with money. We’ll explain the basics AND talk about more advanced topics.
- There’s nothing embarrassing about money. Let’s talk about our wins and losses, so we can all learn from them.
- Fun and play beats preaching any day, brother….any day.
- Surround sound, not education.

Books That Inspire Us
In honor of our especially special Stacking Benjamins themed episode, Doug’s trivia question is about our very show itself. Turns out, this show wasn’t always named Stacking Benjamins.
The first version of what would become this podcast went by a different name. Can you name it? Bonus points if you get the debut year too!
Join Us Friday!
What would you do after you got everything you want in life? Our all-star panel – Jennifer Grimson from the Micro Empires Podcast, Len Penzo from the infamous LenPenzo.com blog, and our very own OG – will get deep on Friday trying to answer this one. It’s a bit more philosophical than you would think. Plus, we’ll have our financial health checkup with Angelo Poli from Metpro.
