Maybe you’ve heard the Jim Rohn phrase, “You are the average of the five people around you.” Is that true for you? Probably. If you’re looking to improve either your net worth, your career, or just your friendships, giving careful thought to your “tribe” will pay dividends. Today we’ll work from a recent Tony Robbins piece on this topic with three people who work hard to surround themselves with good, uplifting people. Aaron Velky, the head of the Stacking Benjamins Money Club (but probably more important, the head of financial education company Ortus Academy), will give us some great advice. Also, we’ll hear great ideas from Paula Pant from Afford Anything and OG as well. It’s a great episode that you’ll want to listen to before setting your 2021 goals.
Plus, our Stacking Benjamins Scholarship Mastery course is about to go into session! If you are either heading to school yourself, have a family member or friend in school, or a high school junior or senior, we’re going to tell you all of the important dates coming up this year for scholarships AND we’ll detail how our course works so you can get in before the deadline, which is Friday, December 11th.
Our anonymous caller to the Magnify Money line today is receiving a $500,000 inheritance. His parents want him to connect with their financial advisor, but he’s been doing good so far by investing in low-cost funds on his own. Our caller and his wife has have no debt other than their mortgage. He asks: is it time to bring an advisor on board, or should he stick with what’s been working so far?
