Hello there! I'm super excited to have our first Q&A episode, so a few weeks back I had an ask on twitter and on facebook for people to send in their questions and ask us about everything that they wanted to know regarding their finances and we got tons of questions and we're super excited to launch the first Q&A today. So I have my cohost here, Mark Guastaferri, who's going to walk me through all the questions that you guys have. Mark is fantastic. And has been in finance for the last decade, so he probably knows more than me about all this stuff and I'm sure we'll have good insights on everything that you guys want to hear about. So with that Mark take it away.Read More
Alright, so today is a very Thanksgiving episode. So to give you a little insight into my mind and how I work and why I keep talking about all of these things about using our brains properly to work out our finances, I thought I would tell you a little about Thanksgiving in the Rochard house. And that’s long before Pierre and I were married and we had a son. So before I can remember even, thanksgiving was at my grandparents house. And then it was at my parents house. My parents was like the party house in my family for many many years.Read More
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”.Read More
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.Read More
I’ve been thinking a lot about the idea of why we do the things we do. We have these beliefs about ourselves and our finances. We think them over and over again until we consider them to be truths. We don’t accept that anyone else could view money in any other way. Why? Because our belief is TRUTH. Our belief is the only way it could be. That thought we have about money, it then determines our financial results. We do all of these things because of something we believe to be true about money, good or bad. We will talk A LOT about this concept as the podcast unfolds: your beliefs around money are the reason you are where you are right now financially.Read More
