Masters of Money
About This Show
Since I started participating in the conversation about money, this stuff happened: I've paid off student loans and car loans, saved up an emergency fund, maxed out my retirement accounts, saved up for two down payments for homes, and left my corporate career to start two businesses. I want you to have the same results that I have had. That means you need to start getting in on the conversation. To make it easy, I want to bring more conversations about money to you. So here's what I'm doing. I'm starting a new podcast show called Masters of Money where I interview the people of FinCon, the event I run for financial nerds, and get them to open up about: their financial turnaround, the goals they've achieved, what they still struggle with, the tools they use, their plans for the future, and more... My hope is that these open and honest conversations will inspire, educate, and entertain. My goal is usefulness.
