The Business of Babies

The Business of Babies

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) estimates that it costs nearly a quarter of a million dollars to raise a child from birth to age 18.  That tally does not include the cost of a college education.The largest piece of that pie lies in housing and transportation at a whopping $107,000. Next, you’ll factor in childcare and education at $44,000. (See? I told you this shit is expensive).Following that is clothing/miscellaneous and healthcare at $33,000 and $20,000 respectively. Let’s get crazy and add the cost of college into that number.  Now we are easily pushing over $350,000 to raise one child. Having kids is not a business decision for most people but it comes with many of the same considerations. There are no “one size fits all”. Let's look at some things to consider before embarking on what I called my new business and what you would probably call your family.

The Smart Way to Buy Property

The Smart Way to Buy Property

2019-07-2900:50:5210

Buying a house is a long-held tenet of the American Dream, one of the milestone markers of adulthood. But there are a lot of misconceptions about homeownership.And there is a lot of misleading information about the process of how to buy a house, some of it seems deliberately misleading. An uninformed buyer is an easy mark for predatory real estate agents, home inspectors, contractors, banks, and mortgage brokers.Buying a house to live in rather than to rent out is not an investment. In reality, it’s usually a terrible investment. That’s because, at the end of the day, owning a home takes money out of your pocket: You’re paying property taxes, you’re paying maintenance, you’re paying insurance. There are all of these other things that happen with your home that you’ve got to pay for.But every decision we make doesn't have to be based strictly on dollars and cents. No matter what we are, anyone else tells you, sometimes you just really want a house. A home of your own feels like stability. It allows you to put your stamp on your environment. A home is something a lot of people want when they decide to have children.We respect all of those reasons, so if you're bound and determined to do it; we want to show you the smart way to buy a property.Full Article HereShow NotesPsionic Blackberry: A sour from Unsung Brewing.Learn more about your ad choices.

The Three P’s of Success

The Three P’s of Success

2019-07-2200:50:227

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? Let's find out.Full Article HereShow NotesMikkeller and Friends Shake Your Stack: An Imperial StoutA 3 Hour Plane Ride with Sean Penn: Matt's own New England IPALearn more about your ad choices.

Fion Lewis Still in love with the real info that the channel gives but this one should just be deleted or redone, the right way with the positive information from multiple sources, concluding the reality of the mindset set forth so we can Learn.. nobody likes their time waisted.. ugly feeling, put me in a small mood at work, wasn't motivated.

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.
