Earn Your Leisure is a podcast hosted by Rashad Bilal and Troy Millings. On their show, they talk with guests who are earning and investing their money in all sorts of different ways- ways that a lot of folks probably don’t even know exist. Rashad and Troy give a behind-the-scenes look into different industries and highlight what makes those industries tick as well as what makes their guests successful. They describe their podcast as a “college business class mixed with pop culture” and that’s what we’re talking about today- a blending of the two together in order as we gleen our own personal finance takeaways.

Just like how we can idolize ‘finding the right one’ when looking for a partner or spouse, the same can be true of passive income as we’re talking about our personal finances. We can be tempted into thinking that if we only find the right person then it’s smooth sailing. But as anyone who has been in a long-term relationship knows- the work has only just begun! The same is often true of the different passive income opportunities that we hear pitched in social media or hawked in YouTube videos. Passive income is a legit and real concept, but the way it’s often presented doesn’t include the full story, or they leave out some crucial details. There are very few sources of 100%, purely passive income and so that’s why we are dispelling the myth that there are opportunities around every corner, but have a listen because there are ways you can begin establishing your own future streams of income, today.

With every passing day, it seems like we’re getting closer to being able to resume our pre-pandemic lives. On a personal note, we’re really looking forward to cramming into the Benz here in Atlanta to watch some soccer. And while we’re looking for a degree of normalcy, we need to make sure that we don’t spend our way into oblivion as the economy is reopening! There’s a good chance many of us ended last year without having spent nearly as much money as we typically would have, and now we’re chomping at the bit- shopping might feel like one of the few things we can do right now. Since there is so much pent-up demand, it’ll really be easy for us to fall prey to poor spending. It’s important for us to keep that behavior in check and there are a host of alternatives for us to consider instead of making that purchase. But if we’ve decided that we have to click ‘buy’, then we have a ton of options to make sure that we’re getting the best deal possible.

What does it take to win with your money and achieve your financial goals? During this episode, we make a case that the most important factor is grit. It’s not earning six figures, or knowing the exact right investment moves to make. Though both of those are important, they’re not nearly as vital as grit. As Angela Duckworth writes, “Grit is perseverance for very long-term goals”. We begin to succeed when we truly commit to the goals that we’re pursuing. Luckily the amount of grit we possess isn’t static and there are ways for us to cultivate more grit in our lives that will allow us to get ahead with our finances. Passion, practice, and other people are just a few of the really important ways that we can develop more grit and start winning with our money.

There are a number of confusing things in life- for some it’s deciphering the latest Christopher Nolan film, for others it might be the process of building whatever is in that flat pack box from Ikea. But what about taxes? They can also be a puzzling topic and we also tend to have some janky tax ideas in our brains. Unfortunately, those ideas are often what we base our decisions on if we don’t have a tax professional in our life. So our goal for this episode is to clear up some more common tax misconceptions out there and to make sure that we’re all making decisions based on what’s true instead of based on a video that someone made on TikTok, or what we heard a friend say.

Here’s a saying that we’ve all heard- don’t put all your eggs in one basket. That makes a lot of sense but does it apply to investing? Is one fund enough if you’re invested in a diversified index fund? Or maybe you’re thinking- forget index funds, what about bonds? Shouldn’t I be invested in those as well? These are all questions that we’re going to address during this episode where we discuss asset allocation and how it is that we personally invest. Everyone wants to make wise investing decisions, but in an attempt to diversify we can easily become overwhelmed with the pure quantity of different investing options that are available. For example crypto, REITs, and NFTs just to name a few. Spending some time thinking about asset allocation is smart but simplicity has its advantages. Listen in as we do a deep dive on asset allocation today to put your mind at ease and help you think through what a solid diversification strategy looks like.

This is a must listen if you know someone preparing to go to college, or if you happen to be in that boat yourself! Our guest today is Ron Lieber who has been the Your Money columnist for the New York Times since 2008 and is a three-time winner of the Gerald Loeb Award which is financial and business journalism’s highest honor. He is the author of multiple books including the recently released “The Price You Pay for College” which is already a definitive guide to help parents and students think through important decisions when it comes to higher education.

the option to work remote is great. emphasis on the option... because I think everyone is sick of it and mothers are struggling and I feel disconnected from coworkers and... it doesn't seem sustainable to me.

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.
