Happy Birthday to our namesake Benjamin Franklin!! Today we’ll celebrate by talking about one of our favorite topics, leaving your 9-5 job early. To help us, we welcome the woman behind the new EconoMe Conference, Diania Merriam, Len Penzo from Len Penzo dot com, and the wonderful OG from our very own podcast! This piece, written by Jessica Garbarino for her Every Single Dollar blog, is titled Why I Walked Away from a Six-Figure Job, and goes over some very good reasons to leave a “good” job AND many of the strategies she used to ensure she wouldn’t have to return. (Big thanks to Mindy Jensen from BiggerPockets Money for reading it today as well!)
Frustrated with your money management skills? Don’t feel like you have enough of a handle on your monthly expenses? At the halfway mark of today’s episode, we’ll hear from Belinda Rosenblum and Joe, as they unveil the exciting new course offered by the Stacking Benjamins team, Making Money Easy. We’ll walk through all of the details today. It’s been a long time since we’ve had a Stacking Benjamins course, so we’re thrilled to tell you about it today.
And finally, during our MagnifyMoney segment we will answer a question from Reddit.com on whether or not a man is in the wrong for not wanting “free” childcare from his mother-in-law. Where do you stand? Is he on the right side of this argument?
As always, of course we’ll quiz our contributors with an epic gameshow question about Ben Franklin from our neighbor, Doug. We’ll have all that and more on today’s show! Hope you can join the fun!
