Our buddy DR had some things to say about stimulus checks and student debt this week (3:11). Tiffany has some thoughts about that (7:20). And after we get done with the dragging, we got a really good question from a listener named Jane (29:25). Jane wants to leave her job to start her own business, and she’s got a few questions about how to get financially ready for that. After we take a second to give her a round of applause for doing an amazing job with her finances thus far, we get to talking about how hard the life of an entrepreneur can be. Do you need to quit your job to start your business (31:10)? Is it okay to contribute a little less to your 401k (34:20).

There’s a lot to think about here, and Tiff gets real real about it (45:20).

When you’re done listening, this is the list of financial educators we want you to know about:
