Over the course of our lives, our habits become ingrained and the small things we do day after day shape who we become. This is especially true of our money as simple routines can be life-changing, but don’t forget the door swings both ways. While positive financial habits can lead to massive wins for us down the road, negative habits can lead to some pretty grim consequences. In this episode we discuss the ‘what’ and the ‘how’- what are some great financial behaviors to begin practicing, and how to stick with it and transform those behaviors into long lasting habits.During this episode we enjoyed a Heady Topper by the The Alchemist- a big thanks to Cameron here in Atlanta for donating this beer to the show this week!

Tiffany Aliche is also known as the Budgetnista and her mission is to make life-changing financial education accessible to women worldwide. She’s been featured on MSNBC, The Today Show, Forbes- and earlier this year she was instrumental in a new law that passed in New Jersey that will have a massive impact on financial education. We also dive into her history with money and how even though she was raised in a household that prioritized money discussions, she still made some costly mistakes that left her broke before climbing out of that debt. Now, she has already helped over 800,000 women worldwide collectively save more than $100 million, and pay off over $75 million in debt, purchase homes, and transform the way they think about their finances.During this episode we enjoyed a Mountain Beer Kolsch by Telluride Brewing Co- a big thanks to Alex there are the brewery for donating this beer to the show!

Housing costs are a significant expense, gobbling up around 37% of most American’s take home pay- other categories don’t even come close! Spending less on housing will have an inordinate impact on the amount of money you’re able to save and invest, and house hacking is one of the best ways to achieve this goal. House hacking is a tactic that everyone should consider- whether you pay rent or have a mortgage, you’re a candidate for transforming a monthly expense into a source of revenue. Listen as we demystify some different approaches to house hacking as well as our personal experience with this valuable practice.During this episode we enjoyed Mosaic Coyote by Yellowhammer Brewing- a big thanks to Matt’s dad, Tim, for donating these beers to the show this week!

We talk a lot about investing- whether that be in the stock market, in real estate, or in bitcoin (JK don’t ever do that)! But it’s not often that we discuss investing in ourselves- our personal capital is one of the greatest assets we have! The power to grow our income based on our unique skills is crucial as we develop personally and professionally. While many folks stop growing their knowledge and experience once they receive that diploma, challenging ourselves to grow in these areas can have a massive payoff down the road.During this episode we enjoyed a Whiskey Peach Cider by Western Cider Co- another big thanks to Rae in Missoula for donating to the show this week!

Kristy writes about money on her site Millennial-Revolution and shares her story in the new book she wrote with her husband called “Quit Like a Millionaire.” In this interview we cover a number of topics that range from her remarkable childhood and the surprising benefits of a scarcity mindset, all the way to analyzing what degree to pursue and her experience with geographic arbitrage.During this episode we enjoyed a Blood Orange Gose by Draught Works- a big thanks to Rae in Missoula for donating this beer to the show!

There’s a lot of crappy financial advice out there. Some sayings you might hear all the time and you’re not even sure where they even originated- maybe they’re more of a proverbial phrase. There are also bits of wisdom that might have been good at some point, but are now just outdated- it’s time to retire those old ways of thinking! And other phrases might just be broad blanket statements, but our financial landscape today requires a bit more nuance. We’re going to tackle some of these sayings and determine what we should and shouldn’t be doing with our money.During this episode we enjoyed a Golden Sabbath by Big Island Brewhaus- another big thanks to Cody in Hawaii for donating these beers to the show this week!

Loyalty to certain brands, stores, or service providers could be costing you a ton of money. The same might be true when it comes to your devotion to an employer - your loyalty might be keeping you from earning more. There are times when loyalty is appropriate and justifiable, and we’ll discuss those instances, but just be mindful of where your allegiances lie. Sure, dedication can be great in your personal life with friends and loved ones, but we want you to question your loyalty, especially when it comes to faceless corporations where there isn’t any personal connection.During this episode we enjoyed a Fairy Nectar London by Kros Strain Brewing Co- another big thanks to Joey in Omaha for donating both beers to the show this week!

Talking with your parents about their finances might prove to be a very difficult conversation- discussing religion and politics may even seem like a walk in the park compared to breaching the topics of retirement, long term care, and wills. Which is why we’re so thankful to have Cameron Huddleston join us to explain how we can go about having these essential conversations with our parents. She has recently published her book “Mom and Dad, We Need to Talk” and she is here to walk us through initiating and leading these conversations with our parents about their finances.

I can't help but comment. I love love love this show. But this woman is incredibly annoying. Her parents are responsible for her shift. And 44 cents in the 90s in China isnt so bad for food. She talks way too fast and throws buzzwords around like flies. Imagine trying to get a word in or disagreeing with her. And newsflash if you're spending 40k a year living overseas and that's somehow cheaper than living in the states, you're doing it wrong. Nobody I know considers 40k cheap.

I think this podcast is excellent and accessable. Ideally public education would teach these kinds of money concepts. Since it doesn't (at least not in New Mexico) I'm very happy to learn about them from two engaging people who are clearly great friends. It's an easy podcast to listen to and it teaches you quite a bit along the way.

loving the podcast. trying to get better with money and this podcast is for sure helping. I don't really care about the beer drinking but I just skip thru it if I want to end the episode a few minutes faster. and it keeps the podcast at the roots of where it started

I really like these guys but it's unbelievabably annoying when they talk about craft beer and other garbage for 15 minutes

Light-hearted, easy listening with a solid structure. I like how they keep beer as the end caps on an episode and avoid financial jargon that may derail less savvy listeners. This podcast and the guys' attitudes throughout help paint money in an approachable and fun way. Whether it's a quick tip, advice from financial big dogs, or a grounded anecdote at the root of a financial lesson; these guys deliver great insight on the seemingly complex world of $$$. Overall: a great addition to your podcast quiver.

I just completed the gauntlet of episodes in record time. I think started listening around a month ago and ran out new shows! Awesome stuff, we share many of the same philosophies on life, traffic, beer and money! I too hopped on the electric bike train early on, about 4-5 years ago now. 10 mile commute both ways but with the traffic here in Santa Cruz California I actually got to work faster than driving. Definitely a good time for reflection, fresh air, and maybe a podcast in one ear. Keep up the good work guys, you have an awesome thing here.
