Thank you Farnoosh for this podcast. I’m a woman in her early 20’s who feels underpaid and undervalued. This podcast gives me hopes that I will accomplish more and one day be paid fairly for my work and effort. Farnoosh interviews successful people that share their story and relationship to money. Farnoosh is a skilled interviewer and offers resources and knowledge about finances, real estate and career development. Every podcast is different and offers a different perspective. I highly recommend listening to this podcast. It is one of my favorites.

I was hoping for something much more..

I think the recent real estate shows are indicitive of the whole. Instead of economists or real estate experts, what we got were agents who not only have a vested interest in painting a certain picure, they were interested in selling themselves and their own projects. I learned nothing about national trends, possible pitfalls of the markets due to loss of work on such a large scale or the interesting ballance going on between low lending rates ballanced by the need to have a very high credit score to get them. It was all fluff.

Rank #3: 764: Ask Farnoosh: How to Build My (DIY) Financial Plan?

Podcast cover
Read more

We have a special theme for Ask Farnoosh this Friday: Prioritizing your financial goals.

Special co-host Eric Roberge is a certified financial planner and has found that people tend to get stuck on how to use their money... and many times, end up procrastinating to their own detriment because of it! They are trying to make the right decision when all they really need to do is avoid making a bad one.

We have a lot we want to accomplish with our money and know we need to save, invest wisely, and watch our cash flow... but we seem to struggle when it comes to (confidently) knowing which of our goals to focus on first -- or how to balance them if they're going to work on more than one thing at a time.

What if you had $70,000 worth of consumer debt and losing your job amidst all of that financial stress?

Today, I’m interviewing Adeola Omole on the show. She describes herself as a lawyer by trade and a money coach by choice. Her journey of achieving debt ZERO and building a community for women and money is the focus of our conversation today.

Raised by immigrants in a family of six children, Adeola watched her parents work hard but also pinch pennies. Seeing her parents’ financial struggles growing up, Adeola thought debt was a normal part of life. This led her to make her own money mistakes. By the time she was a young adult finishing her clerkship just out of law school, she had amassed $70,000 worth of consumer debt.

Fast-forward to today, Adeola and her husband are debt-free and building great wealth. They’ve even managed to pay off their mortgage. Adeola also has a new book: 7 Steps to Get Out of Debt and Build Wealth.

You can learn more about Adeola on her website adeolaomole.com, on Instagram at @adeolaomoleb, and on Twitter @AdeolaOmoleB.

We continue to take a closer look and have deeper conversations with some of the minority faces of the FIRE movement.

On Monday we spoke with Paula Pant, a Nepalese-American woman and founder of the Afford Anything blog and podcast.

Today, we’re in talks with married couple Amon and Christina Browning, founders of Our Rich Journey, a popular blog and YouTube channel: At the age of 39 and 41, Amon and Christina achieved financial independence and retired early (FIRE). They quit their federal government jobs, retired, and moved to Portugal with their two daughters (ages 11 and 12). On their FIRE journey, they lived and worked in California, Spain, and Japan while saving more than 70% of their income; they discovered “house hacks” to live rent and mortgage free for more than ten years; they learned to travel-hack free luxury vacations for their family all over the world.  

Their YouTube channel (“Our Rich Journey”) documents the unique ways they save, make, and invest money - the FIRE way. In just over two years of starting their YouTube channel, their channel garnered more than 280,000 YouTube subscribers and over 13 million video views. Their FIRE story has been featured in numerous media outlets including Good Morning America, the UK's Daily Mail, and Parade Magazine.

1074: F.I.R.E. Movement Feature: Paula Pant, Founder of Afford Anything

Podcast cover
Read more

This week I’m chatting with a number of people who identify as members of the FIRE movement, which stands for Financial Independence Retire EarlY. The mission is to intensely save and invest —over half your income—so you can retire sometime by 40 or sooner. The movement is often associated with white men who have high earning careers in software engineering or finance. And as a result the FIRE saving and investing advice and pursuit of FIRE  can be inapplicable to many..  So this week we’re speaking to the minority members of the FIRE group that are making the movement more diverse, more inclusive and more relevant.

Today we’re speaking with Paula Pant, a prominent leader of the Financial Independence Retire Early movement and an enthusiastic investor with a soft spot for spreadsheets. She is the Founder of Afford Anything, a personal finance and financial independence website and host of the award-winning Afford Anything podcast.

Paula’s core belief that “you can afford anything, but not everything” is the backbone of Afford Anything. Through expert interviews and bi-weekly “Ask Paula” episodes, listeners learn to think critically about how they spend limited resources like time, money, and energy.

Paula survived Covid 19 earlier this spring so our conversation starts there…and we dive into her financial belief systems in this unusual time…have they changed?

1068: Dealing with Childhood Financial Trauma with Author Leisa Peterson

Podcast cover
Read more

Establishing a healthier mindset and management around money requires reconciling with the past, and facing any potential childhood money trauma head on. Financial author Leisa Peterson, author of The Mindful Millionaire, opens up about her early years, depicted as “white trash” and the learnings and (un) learnings that helped her heal and grow her wealth.

Says Leisa, “Somehow I found a way to break free of thinking of myself as white trash which is how people thought of our family in our neighborhood. Some kids told me they couldn't play with me because their parents didn't feel like my family was safe. It went deep and was classism at its worst. I'm still breaking through the shame of what I felt when I was young.”

More about Tiffany: She is an award-winning teacher of financial education and is quickly becoming America’s favorite, personal financial educator. The Budgetnista is also an Amazon #1 bestselling author of The One Week Budget and the Live Richer Challenge series.

Thank you Farnoosh for this podcast. I’m a woman in her early 20’s who feels underpaid and undervalued. This podcast gives me hopes that I will accomplish more and one day be paid fairly for my work and effort. Farnoosh interviews successful people that share their story and relationship to money. Farnoosh is a skilled interviewer and offers resources and knowledge about finances, real estate and career development. Every podcast is different and offers a different perspective. I highly recommend listening to this podcast. It is one of my favorites.

I was hoping for something much more..

I think the recent real estate shows are indicitive of the whole. Instead of economists or real estate experts, what we got were agents who not only have a vested interest in painting a certain picure, they were interested in selling themselves and their own projects. I learned nothing about national trends, possible pitfalls of the markets due to loss of work on such a large scale or the interesting ballance going on between low lending rates ballanced by the need to have a very high credit score to get them. It was all fluff.
