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?

Ep – 266 How Do You Make a Unicorn Culture?

In her business, Tiffany calls her team the “Unicorn Squad.” We need to have a talk about how we create a “Unicorn Culture.” The old ways of doing work are dying and we say let them die. You want to talk a meeting while you’re out on a walk, why not? We had a great talk this week about how to value your employees as people instead of money generating machines.

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?

And this week we’re also giving a big Brown Boost to Mandi’s new website https://www.mandimoney.com/
