9 Pieces of Financial Advice You Should Ignore
54:05

It seems like you can’t go anywhere without someone having an opinion or a piece of advice regarding your finances. We are inundated with financial articles, news headlines, and information from our families - solicited or not.

Financial advice, no matter how well-intentioned it may be, can function like that old game of Telephone. It starts with one message, but by the time it reaches you it can end up communicating something vastly and, in the case of your money, dangerously different.

17:26

Happy New Year Money Guy Show Family! There has never been a better time to buy into the market and start investing than right now! Between investment options and low-cost investments, you have an opportunity to supercharge your finances by investing.

Meaning, you can jumpstart and build wealth on your own for now.  If you have more than $250,000, then it's probably time to consider hiring a co-pilot to avoid making financial mistakes and maximize your investment returns. 

Either way, no matter where you are in your financial journey, today's episode shares the 9 steps you can take to invest $1,000 right now! Imagine the impact properly investing $1,000 can have on your growth potential. We talk about that and so much more in today's show.

Are Generous People More Successful?
22:21

Are generous people more successful? Cultural idioms like it’s a “dog-eat-dog-world” and “nice guys finish last” may have you thinking that while generosity is the “right” way to be, it doesn’t always pay-off in the end. And that somehow the “ends justifying the means” is the way to get to the top of the success scale.

Be sure to tune-in to this week’s short episode of The Money Guy Show to find out just how successful some generous people are and how they get there while others do not.
