Good morning, I came across your podcast and its great!!! i would like to offer some info for your audience. Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department does not require a college degree to become a police officer (cap off at 99k)or a correctional officer (cap off at 71k). LVMPD still offers one of the best retirement packages around. They also offer several entry level positions for civilians that do not require a degree with very nice payscale. Free medical insurance, deferred comp offer, and company paid pension. HVAC and Electrician positions (40-50/hr) in Las Vegas also pay very very well, only requiring a training program and certification after a few months. Both are big business and offers the opportunity to start your own business. No State Tax, Low cost of living. Keep up the great work!!!

This was one of the best episodes because of the perspective Romeo Brown was able to provide. I felt that when he was talking about how he was humbled and had to get a job at Costco. I'm in a similar situation where it's very humbling this current point in life I'm going through. To hear the encouragement to keep moving forward is exactly what I need when I'm at work feeling depressed. I needed to hear this today. Thank y'all for what you do, I've been down since episode one and I have learned so much about finance it's unreal and y'all giving it away for free 99! Blessings on Blessings to y'all man forreal
