Stacking Benjamins: Your Gateway to Money and Personal Finance


Nov 15, 2017

Lisa Phillips made some BIG mistakes when she first invested in real estate. Yet, different from many people, who give up after only one or two attempts, Lisa kept the mind of a scientist and tried different ways of investing until she finally found one that worked for her....low cost real estate. She'll describe her methods on today's show. Regardless of whether you're hoping to buy low cost housing or follow a more traditional route, Lisa will share ideas that'll help you get started on today's podcast!

Plus, in our headlines segment, Jamie Wise from the BUZZ Index joins us to talk about online chatter and investments. Especially interesting this month? Social media seems to be abuzz about SNAP. More on that in today's episode. Plus, we'll tackle a headline about the CEO of Blackrock suggesting that companies should turn investing into more of a game to attract millennials. Do you think so? We'll find out what Joe & OG think....

We'll of course have more from the world of financial planning, throw out the Haven Life line to lucky listener Annie, who calls in all the way from Australia, asking about financial independence. If she and her boyfriend are slated to reach FI at different times, are there some ways she can catch up? Should she even try? If not, are there other strategies she should pursue? Plus, we'll answer a letter from a listener and still leave time for Doug's trivia.

Huge thanks to Roofstock (check out their massive real estate database) and MagnifyMoney.com (when you're comparing financial tools like credit cards and savings accounts) for helping us with today's show.
