#18 - Why is it hard to follow advice?
#17 - Budgeting Equals Freedom
Why is it so hard to follow advice, even when we want to make changes in our lives?
Generally - it’s because we don’t necessarily agree with the advice, even if it’s not something we’re admitting. Sometimes, it’s also just too hard for us to be compliant.
#16 - Counting Chickens
We can have anything we want but not everything we want, no matter how much money we have.
We tend to spend our money how we spend our time
Forming good habits early is best because otherwise you will always find something to spend your money on, even if it doesn't enhance your life
#14 - Financial Freedom
Don't count your chickens before they hatch? Yup - we cover the story about the milkmaid and her pail.
Count some chickens - it's ok! Just don't spend them, or have your head so far in the clouds that you can't make it happen.
This episode covers why dreaming a little is actually good for you!
#13 - Income
We take a deep dive in this episode on the differences between FI/RE (financial independence, retire early) and financial freedom. Can you guess which one I like better?
#11 - Home Ownership
Your long awaited episode on how to think about income is here! In this podcast we cover how our thoughts get in our way of making more money, how to evaluate how much you can make, some snippets on time management and basic negotiating. It all takes practice, but now that you’ve been listening for 6 months, you’re a pro at catching yourself thinking things you don’t want to right?
#3 - Discipline Equals Financial Freedom
All about real estate - and by real estate, I mean home ownership! There will likely be an episode about rental properties some other time.
We de-bunk some of your "truths" about owning a home. Why we do it, what's a thought and what's a myth? Why do YOU want to own a home? Or not own a home?
I’d love to get some feedback as to why you bought your home or why you decided to rent! Feel free to start the convo with me on twitter @morgenrochard or @money_owners
#2 - Your Brain and Your Financial Future
I want to talk today about a concept that is near and dear to my heart. If you listen to Jocko Podcast (Jocko Willink is a personal hero of mine), you’ll hear him repeat over and over: discipline equals freedom. And there is nothing truer. Today’s topic: discipline equals financial freedom.
I don’t know about you, but initially when I heard the word discipline, I thought of teaching someone to obey rules with the stick, rather than the carrot, so to speak. That’s not really what it means. Merriam Webster certainly has that as listed in the definition, but we’re going to use another definition today: “to train or develop by instruction and exercise especially in self-control”. I’ll repeat that for you: “to train or develop by instruction and exercise especially in self-control”.
So, spoiler alert – your financial future will look a lot like your present if you don’t start making some changes. That’s cool if your present is awesome, but it’s probably discouraging to hear if your present isn’t as great as you’d like it to be.
The good news is: your future can be whatever you want it to be (within reason). I’m not saying its going to be raining money all day and you can flip off your boss and spend 6 months in Tahiti. But you can make some basic changes now to ensure that your financial future looks how you want it to look.
