Hey there, welcome to mom’s basement home on the internet. Congrats on becoming a Stacker! That’s right, we call each other stackers around here because we are all trying to sock away as many Benjamins as possible to reach our goals. We’re glad you’ve joined our Stacker community! Grab a beanbag chair and I’ll walk you through a TON of our resources to help get you started.
Our goal is to help you educate yourself on how this money stuff works. So let’s dive in and see how we can help you make better financial decisions in your life.
The Best Place to Start: The 201
The 201 is our exclusive email subscription for stackers who are looking for more resources. Subscribe and you will get Joe’s money lessons as well as additional information on the topics discussed on our show, and it’s all written by two former financial advisors. Plus, it’s all free! We include LOTS of links and resources that we don’t have time to include in our show so you can dive deeper into financial topics.
Surround Sound: Our podcast
