Billionaire Warren Buffett once said “Never depend on single income. Make investment to create a second source.”  All of the entrepreneurs I’ve interviewed on this podcast (or really any other podcast for that matter) have taken Mr. Buffett’s words to heart. If you’re going to create some serious wealth for you, your family and your family’s family, you need to diversify your earning options. Saving and long-term investing are crucial pieces to the wealth ...

My wife and I are approaching a big milestone in our financial journey. Our mortgage will be completely paid off by the end of the year. That exciting financial hurdle has gotten us thinking about the next steps on our quest for financial freedom. Over and over again, owning rental real estate continues to rise to the top of that list. The excitement of finding the right home, fixing it up, ...

This fall, I’m attending a conference called FinCon. This 3-day event focuses on the business of personal finance media. Bloggers, vloggers and podcasters from all around the country come to grow their small business and learn how to provide the most value to their audience. Given that I’m slightly obsessed with personal finance, I am pumped to attend this conference. I’ll be like a kid in a candy store jumping from ...

In an effort to build up our savings lately, I’ve been researching a lot about how we can cut back our annual expenses. I’ve found that there’s a fine balance between reducing our overall spending and maintaining our current level of family happiness. After all, we could save 100% of our income, but that would leave us with no food, no home and no fun. (Insert sad face emoji here). On ...

Six years ago, I decided to go credit card free. I had gone through Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University where the credit card was labeled as the enemy of financial freedom. Since Mr. Ramsey’s advice had helped me in so many other areas of my financial life, like paying off our debt and getting proper insurance coverage, I thought avoiding credit cards completely was the smart way to go. Last year, ...

When I read the Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey in 2011, I knew going through all of the 7 baby steps could take quite a while. The book’s structure of saving money, paying off debt and investing was simple and easy to understand, but it definitely had some years attached to it. This was not a “get rich quick book” for sure. Nevertheless, I was intrigued and inspired to ...

You have been persistent, you’ve become best friends with Zillow and your hard work has paid off. You have finally found your dream home. Now, it’s time for the important next step of choosing your mortgage. Some crucial questions start to pop into your head: Can we afford this home? What type of loan is right for us?

Tomorrow is the 241st anniversary of the United States of America declaring its independence from Great Britain. While I’m preparing to spend a fun family day filled with hot dogs, beers and fireworks, I remembered that I also made a declaration of my own at the beginning of the year about my goals for 2017. We’re halfway done with the year so I thought I’d check in, share my progress ...

Last month, I laid down a challenge for my Marriage, Kids and Money friends to get their last will and testament in place. Since my wife and I had gotten our wills set up last year, my end of the challenge was to investigate if my family needed a living trust. Here is what I learned: What is a Living Trust? LegalZoom tells me a living trust is “a written legal document through ...
