Ep 230 – OK, Why is Everyone Obsessed with Forex Trading?

First and foremost we’re paying respects to our girl Cici aka The Six Figure Chick. She passed away last week, and we needed to say a word about someone who’s spent so much of their life giving and giving and giving. We love you and we’ll miss you.

And y’all had some great questions for us this week:

  • My job position is unstable, but I have some money saved. I’ve started my own business, and I have credit card debt. Which is a better use for my savings?
  • I want to get into stocks, is there an app you can recommend for beginners?

Learn about this and more, and check out the resources below for everything we talked about this week:

  • how IKEA can be a gold mine for smart flippers
  • ways to increase your savings without giving up everything you love
