Ep 269 – Just quit already! And other new rules for wealth-building

This week we’re joined by special guest host Chris Browning. Chris is the host of Popcorn Finance, a podcast where he discusses finance in about the time it takes to make a bag of popcorn. He’s also the co-host of This is Awkward, where he and his co-host Allison Baggerly help people with their awkward money problems. We dig into some good stuff this week like:

  • After we get past financial survival/protection mode, what are the new rules to follow?
  • What kind of life insurance is best?
  • What happens when you’ve budgeted my whole income and you still can’t find the cash to save or invest?

Chris has some big shoes to fill and he did a fantastic job. Enjoy!

Ep 267 – What’s The Money For?

Tiff is, after this episode, taking a much needed and well deserved break. We thought it was important to have a talk about why this is okay and necessary to do. And we have a talk about shifting your mindset away from simply survival, once your financial safety net is set up. You’ll also hear:

  • (27:29) – This is the 100th anniversary of The Tulsa Massacre. We have a quick guest appearance to explain what happened, and why it still matters today
  • (40:56) – An important listener question: “how do we deal with inflation?”
  • (50:55) – Is it reckless for a 50 year old single mom to be thinking about a year off from Corporate America?

Then we’re on to your questions, this week we’ll talk about:

  • (28:15) Is there really a housing bubble happening right now? 
  • 36:22) Paying off my debt has lowered my credit score, how can I start to recover it?
