Ep. 034: Stacking Benjamins: Earn, Save, and Spend Money With a Plan
The biggest asset purchase or sale you’ll make in life could be your own home. For advice on how to do it right, "Better Off" turns to Stephen Gasque.
I’ve been in the podcasting world for a few years now, and one thing I’ve discovered is that the podcasting world really is like a small fraternity/sorority where hosts form bonds and even appear on each other’s shows.
I’ve been a guest on Joe’s podcast, so I figured it was time to return the favor. Just like me, Joe has a background in finance. He was a financial advisor for 16 years and represented American Express and Ameriprise in the media. He was also the “Money Man” at Detroit television WXYZ-TV.
Once he got the bug from listening to others, Joe decided he wanted to host his own podcast and now, just four short years later, it’s his full-time job.
- What is it about Joe’s background and approach that has resonated with listeners?
- Why don’t people want to talk about money?
- What has Joe excited about where we are in the financial world?
Those questions and many others made for a very fun interview. You can find out more about Joe’s show on his Twitter page.
