Ep 254 – Girlfriends, Not Gurus

We almost called this episode “D*ve R*msey is Trash — The Sequel”.

We were overwhelmed by the response to last week’s show. Thank you so much for the support!

For more on the shady history of DR’s corporation, check out this article from Religion News Service. It’s worth the read, along with the full response from the DR team.

But the real reason we want to talk about DR again is that last week his podcast was DETHRONED from the number one spot for financial shows on Apple Podcasts for personal finance. He was taken out by our friends Rashad Bilal and Troy Millings of Earn Your Leisure. Shine on!

And after a word on the difference between finance gurus and finance girlfriends, we got to a really good listener question…

(40:30) $40,000 in debt…where do I start?!

Ep 253 – The D*ve R*msey Read

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:

We’ve got NEWS! BA has officially joined the Westwood One podcast network (5:43). We’re so excited and grateful for the opportunity they’re giving us to continue growing and reaching more people. A LOT happened while we were gone, so let’s get into it…

What in the world happened with Gamestop? What does it mean to “short” a stock? Did a reddit meme just make a whole bunch of people rich? We’ve got the tea. (11:44)

We’re sure you know about Tiffany’s book by now. Its called Get Good With Money: 10 Simple Steps to Becoming Financially Whole. And now you can pre-order it! Go get it now right here: https://getgoodwithmoney.com/ (50:13)

And we’re back to answering your questions this week. We’ve got some great ones:

  • 32:29 – How does Tiffany take apple cider vinegar and why?
  • 34:09 – My job just promoted me without giving me a pay raise. They said this was the position I was meant to have all along, but I never signed anything saying that. I’m not in a position to quit right now. Help!
  • 40:08 – I have two 401ks from previous companies. Should I roll them over during the current economy, or should I leave them where they are? Also my company doesn’t have a match. Any suggestions for making the best of this?
