Intro Level Podcast without Unique Content

By ITunes Freak 900 - Jan 13 2020
Read more
I really enjoy Farnoosh herself - she’s a fun lively podcast host. I’ve listened for about a year because of her alone. That said, the advice is fairly generic and could be found in a basic budgeting/money website. Things like “maxing our employers match for 401k” are repeated for every “Ask Farnoosh Friday,” so they feel redundant. They are great for an intro level podcast, but after a while, the content feels stale. Many of the contributors also just wrote another generic “how to get rich” book without bringing something new to the table. I wish all the best for Farnoosh- she’s a smart and interesting woman!

Rank #1: 927: The Budget Mom (Kumiko Love)

Podcast cover
Read more

If you’ve ever felt like budgeting just doesn’t work for you, my guest Kumiko Love can relate. Frustrated by traditional budgeting methods, she created her own technique to pay off almost $80,000 of debt in eight months. And this technique helped launch her business, The Budget Mom.

A few years ago Kumiko was struggling to pay down her debt. As a single mom, she knew that she needed to get out of the cycle of making minimum debt payments each month, but she had tried and failed to stick to a budget numerous times. So, she created a method that she could actually stick to. She calls this her Budget by Paycheck method and as she was using it to get out of debt, she started a blog to share her journey. That blog has now turned into a business that just launched its first physical product, the Budget by Paycheck Workbook™. 

You can learn more about Kumiko on her website https://www.thebudgetmom.com/ and you can follow her on Instagram @thebudgetmom on Facebook @thebudgetmom

Rank #14: 798: Adeola Omole, 7 Steps to Get Out of Debt and Build Wealth

Podcast cover

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.

A little bit more about Sigrun:. For much of her career, she ran companies as the CEO. She even turned down the top role as CEO of Nisan, Sweden. She is now the CEO of her own company, a world renowned speaker, a podcast host, and she’s on a mission to help women and men turn their passion into profits. 

Sigrun has a famous quote: “Put a date on your dreams. The rest is logistics.”

Replay from June 7, 2019

This Friday, lots of questions about best ways to invest for retirement and steps for co-mingling finances with a partner. I recently got married and we've been together for 10 years. We have built our lives together, but still have separate bank accounts. We are now talking about combining some money to create a household account. He uses a credit union, I use a bank. Is there a benefit to either? Does it matter?

Special co-host is Catie Hogan is a financial planner with the women-owned Element Financial Group. She’s also the author of the humorous and informative book The Millennial’s Guide to Getting Your Sh*t Together, and an accomplished humor writer and performer. Catie is on a mission to help young adults, particularly women and those in marginalized communities, become more financially literate and empowered. She does this using simple explanations of complex topics, personal anecdotes, and humorous relatability.

Catie understands what it means to be a broke Millennial. She finished college with six-figures in student loan debt, worked entry-level jobs to make ends meet, and had no idea how or where to save and invest money. But after reading several personal finance books, she realized she was one of millions of young adults in this situation—and this became the catalyst for her current career. Catie is putting a fresh, new spin on the fundamentals of personal finance. She believes learning how to be a successful adult doesn't have to be so serious.

After varied career experiences in banking, consulting, and the marijuana industry, she realized that what she was really good at was helping creative people understand their money.

Bonus: Actress Busy Philipps on Earning Your Worth

Podcast cover
Read more

The actress Busy Philipps is known for hit shows like NBC’s “Freaks and Geeks,” the WB’s “Dawson’s Creek,” and ABC’s “Cougar Town.” She is also a writer and a social media personality with 2 million followers on Instagram.

I caught up with Philipps on her media tour with brand partner HotelTonight. (Philipps and HotelTonight ran a contest to give five “planners” last-minute spontaneous getaways.) And during our conversation, she mentioned yet another role. It’s one that isn’t as public-facing, but it is just as notable: fierce negotiator.

In our quick convo, she opens up about her financial upbringing, the financial freedoms that come with having a popular social media platform, and the time she walked away from what would become a successful TV series … with no regrets.

Intro Level Podcast without Unique Content

By ITunes Freak 900 - Jan 13 2020
Read more
I really enjoy Farnoosh herself - she’s a fun lively podcast host. I’ve listened for about a year because of her alone. That said, the advice is fairly generic and could be found in a basic budgeting/money website. Things like “maxing our employers match for 401k” are repeated for every “Ask Farnoosh Friday,” so they feel redundant. They are great for an intro level podcast, but after a while, the content feels stale. Many of the contributors also just wrote another generic “how to get rich” book without bringing something new to the table. I wish all the best for Farnoosh- she’s a smart and interesting woman!
