The Stacking Benjamins Show

Aug 23, 2019

We see people without children retiring early all the time. Is that because children are the speed bumps on the road to the financial heaven? We'll ask our panel for their thoughts, including a woman who has six kids and is chasing financial freedom, Wendy Mayes from the House of FI podcast. We'll discuss meal planning, where you live, your transportation costs, child expenses and more, on today's show.

Halfway through the show, our roundtable discussion will take a break for our Fintech segment. School is back in session, which means it's time to buy school supplies. Brad Williams from Mercari joins Joe in the basement to introduce their app which helps users buy or sell gently used school supplies. Find out what Mercari is all about and what their company can do for you and your wallet.

Plus, we'll answer a voicemail from J during our Magnify Money segment. J is getting married in a few months and wants to know how to effectively introduce money management to his future-spouse. J also wants to know the middle ground in putting a budget in place that the family agrees to. Thoughts?
