The Three P’s of Success

The Three P’s of Success

2019-07-2200:51:391

Everyone wants to find success both in their personal lives and their professional lives. Because success is an almost universal desire, there are thousands of books, podcasts, articles, TV shows, and seminars that claim they can teach us how to be successful.And all of the people selling those books and other things have a vested interest in making finding success seem harder and more complicated than it needs to be. But we like to keep things simple and assume you want the same. We love Marcus Lemonis of the TV show The Profit. He is a successful business person and on the show, takes failing businesses and teaches the owners how they can simply achieve success using the Three P's of Success.There is no magic formula, no book to buy, no seminar to attend. You can spend a single hour after you finish reading this (for free!) and implement one small suggestion for each of the Three P's into your personal, professional, and financial life. Making small changes or minor improvements will not only make you more successful but make your life easier too. Building habits and creating systems are the small picture things that make up the big picture things. No one can overhaul their life in a single step but step-by-step, things get better and easier.So what are the Three P's of Success?

A dollar today isn't the same as a dollar tomorrow, that's the time value of money. Risk and return are expecting a dollar risked to earn more than a dollar.The time value of money and risk and return are two core concepts in personal finance. Luckily, each boils down to a pretty simple statement.The core principle of the time value of money means your dollar today is worth more than your dollar tomorrow.Risk and return say that if you are to risk a dollar, you expect gains of more than just your dollar back. For each unit of risk you take on, you expect a slightly more significant unit of return.Even though these money concepts are easy to simplify, I want to dig a bit deeper into each of them.Full Article HereShow NotesMikkeller Brewing Passion Pool - Gose-style ale with Passionfruit and Sea SaltAmerican Solera Movement and Color Member Blend - Foeder Ale Refermented with Chambourcin and Norton GrapesLearn more about your ad choices.

For most people, their mortgage is their biggest debt. And we all know that debt is bad. Debt is an emergency that we must pay off as soon as possible. But is all debt bad? Is paying off your mortgage quickly a good personal finance strategy? Paying off your mortgage more quickly has its advantages when done strategically but there are downsides too.We get a lot of emails asking about paying off mortgages early and people site various reasons for wanting to do so. A lot of people want to join the FIRE movement. They want to quit their jobs, retire much earlier than the typical retirement age of 65, and sometimes start a business with their extra money and time.Mr. Money Mustache is the God Father of the FIRE movement. He paid his mortgage off years ago to be able to live on something like $30,000 a year.Some people just hate the idea of having any debt hanging over their heads and as we wrote, a mortgage is the biggest source of debt for most. And there are some homeowners who have a bad interest rate and want to save as much money as they can in a bad situation.Yes, the idea of being mortgage free is seductive but before you decide anything, we want to show you how to pay off your mortgage strategically.Full Article HereShow NotesPeachy Bones: An India Pale AleJam Skate: A Double IPALearn more about your ad choices.

Zero to FIRE With Airbnb

Zero to FIRE With Airbnb

2019-06-1701:05:027

Most people are familiar with Airbnb, the site that lets owners rent out a room or an entire home to travelers. Airbnb has become such a hit that many people use it exclusively when traveling for pleasure, work, or any other reason. Goodbye cramped hotel room, hello fully furnished house!And Airbnb isn’t just a hit with those renting a place to stay. Airbnb is the most profitable way to make money in the gig economy.What it did show was that 85% of gig economy workers make less than $500 per month.But, Airbnb hosts, on average, make more than any other gig workers and are raking in an average $924 per month.In fact, Airbnb can be more, a lot more, than a way to make a little money on the side. You know Airbnb but you may not be familiar with the acronym FIRE. It stands for Financial Independence Retire Early. And it’s more than an acronym. FIRE is a whole movement championed by people like Mr. Money Mustache and Tim Ferriss.And the Retire Early part doesn’t mean retiring at 55, it’s more like retiring at 30. If you’re grinding away at a 9-5, have a lot of responsibilities, are in low-paying work, or don’t have a second home just sitting around waiting to host Airbnb guests, you might think this episode isn’t for you.But wait until you hear the crazy story our guest is going to share. Zeona went from zero to FIRE using Airbnbs that weren’t even hers! Setting yourself on FIRE with Airbnb can be done by just about anyone.Full Article HereShow NotesYou’re Killin Me Smalls: A session ale IPAThe Truth Imperial: An IPA from Flying DogZeonaMcIntrye.com: Zeon's consulting siteLearn more about your ad choices.

For most people, their home is their most significant investment. As such, you not only want to protect your investment but increasing a property's value is important too. The right home improvements can do it.  Doubling your property’s value might be a little too ambitious for anyone who isn’t a professional real estate flipper or property developer, but some money spent in the right places will improve your property’s value.Full Article HereShow NotesOak and Orchard :A sour from Epic Brewing.

The whole reason LMM started was to give as many people as we could reach free financial help. And in the past seven years, we’ve done that. We know because we get emails daily from people telling us that the show has helped them.We have dozens of shows and hundreds of articles that give free financial help to anyone who finds us. But not everyone can find us. There are millions of people who have no idea what a podcast even is.And because LMM is a podcast and a website, we are naturally limited to what we can do to help people. Most of what say and write is broad and general, meant to help the most people possible. For those with specific circumstances, it can be hard to translate our general advice into actionable advice.Some people are so lacking in personal finance education that even the material we create, especially for beginners is beyond them. And our content is only available in English which not everyone speaks or reads. Some people can absorb information through reading or listening, but not everyone learns the same way. Some people need intensive, tailored, one on one help.We want to help everyone possible but can’t do it alone. But you can get free financial help, one on one support right in your community.Full Article HereShow NotesKBS: A barrel aged stoutSpace Clouds: An American wild ale.Urbanupbound.org: Get or give free financial help.bethany@urbanupbound.org: How to reach our guestLearn more about your ad choices.

If you are interested in personal finance, you’ve probably heard the term timing the market. There is some debate about whether market timing is a good investment strategy or something impossible, or nearly impossible to do. You probably can't time the market. Unless you’re Warren Buffett which you are not.Even if you’re just a casual observer of economic news, you hear a lot of questions about what’s happening with the stock market or the housing market. These questions create a lot of speculation, but what should the average investor which most of us are, should be doing with our investments based on all of this speculation and crystal ball gazing?By not timing the market are we losing out on price movements that could net us significant market returns? If we’re on the brink of another Great Recession does the buy and hold strategy that LMM has been preaching from the beginning still stand? Should we stick to our index fund or should we all become day traders? It’s enough to make even the soberest long-term investors second guess themselves.We’ve attempted to address some of these issues with our Golden Butterfly, Recession Fire Drill and Investing in the Age of Anxiety episodes. But those episodes have generated some additional questions from listeners about investment decisions and timing the market. We’ll tackle those questions for you.Full Article HereShow NotesAlien Church: A New England style IPA.Cheap Cologne: Matt's own Kolsch.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Listening to the episode of investing and anxiety. It was brought up that people making 100k or even 60k a year are living paycheck to paycheck. That's just ridiculous. I make less than 30k a year and put away $400+ a month. I never think about paying for food, gas, bills, student loans, or anything else I need because I budget. Only when I want to buy something I want, do I sit down and see if I can afford it. Anyone making more than me has no excuse to live paycheck to paycheck. There are some circumstances where someone making more has Needs that can't be lowered (medical expenses for example) and that's a different story. Budgeting works, I learned how to through research, so can everyone else.

bankruptcy can be a great restart for someone in a lot of debt who just wants to start over. If you are falling beyond on your bills and everything else. Hitting restart could be the best thing for you. Credit takes a hit with pretty much everything mentioned in this episode. Either way good podcast.

Finally a segment for the 99% of us who don't have a ton of money to get started in investing. Most podcasts about investing are talking as tho you have 100k in the bank.
