Buying Small Businesses: Is Investing in One Worth It?
3462
A couple months ago, I got really anxious about income.  Aside from ~lite paranoia~ being one of the core tenets of my personality, my concern was (probably) justified. Rumblings of a recession on the horizon, #stonks going down, and the fact that Money with Katie was my sole source of income started to make me feel a little…vulnerable. So I started looking into alternative investments. While I deeply considered real estate and passed for the time being, I discovered an amazing world of online content around buying small businesses and began my pursuit. This episode dives into where I looked, what I found, the two businesses I almost bought, and why I didn’t pull the trigger. Plus, two interviews: One with Sarah Becker, a friend of mine who bought a dilapidated commercial property in her neighborhood when she was 24, and another with Steffany Boldrini, a successful investor in the self-storage space. Sarah's new course, Independent Retirement Academy, launched on May 23. Listeners of Money with Katie get $50 off with code MWK50. Follow Along Blog Instagram Twitter

How to Start Investing Successfully with Just Two Funds
2876
The best part about living in 2022 is the fact that you don’t have to know anything about investing to be a successful investor thanks to products like Betterment (and financial technology more broadly).  But what if you do want to manage your own investments? Then what? Before I learned about Paul Merriman and Chris Pedersen’s Two Funds for Life strategy, I never really knew what to tell people aside from do your research and best of luck to you, madam. So this week, I’m joined by Chris (who created the Two Funds for Life model) to talk about an amazing 80/20 solution for getting proper, low-cost diversification with only two funds (hence the name). Not only that, but the “rebalancing” is more or less taken care of for you.  Follow Along Blog Instagram Twitter

The Myth of the "Dream Job" and Expanding Your Earning Potential
2485
Lauren from Career Contessa joins me this week for a revelatory conversation about the myth of the elusive “dream job.” Ironically, it took getting my dream job to realize it’s…still a job. Wait a second, why does this still feel like work sometimes? So why does acknowledging this myth and moving past it matter? Because the illusion that there’s a “dream job” out there for you (the career version of a soulmate) leads to both expectation hangovers and disappointment when—surprise!—even a job you really like comes with downsides. This episode is an exploration of the idea that maybe the grass isn’t always greener, and the things that make a job “good” are often overlooked in our misguided pursuit of a job that elicits “passion.” That said, we also discuss the importance of liking what you do (to a healthy extent) and the positive financial outcomes that enjoying your work can bring.

BONUS: The SHEcession, Childcare, and Modern Motherhood in the US
2965
...because who's more qualified to talk about the challenges of being a mother than someone without kids, right?! Right?! 3.5 million women were pushed out of the workforce in March 2020 because of caretaking challenges. Overnight, we dropped to 1988 levels of women’s workforce participation, which confirms the theory that there’s a causal relationship between childcare availability and affordability, and women’s workforce participation. Hear from your favorite childless woman (yours truly!) and a slew of Rich-Girls-Turned-Rich-Moms about how they've addressed these challenges in their own lives. One of the Rich Girls (Moms) who called in is also a personal finance writer: Ashley Feinstein Gerstley is the author of Financial Adulting, a guide that breaks down everything you need to be a financially confident and conscious adult. As a trusted money expert, she has appeared on or been quoted in The Financial Times, the TODAY Show, CNBC, Forbes, NBC, Glamour and the The New York Times. Ashley has worked in the financial services industry for over fifteen years: first as an investment banker, then in corporate finance, and most recently running The Fiscal Femme. She graduated with a bachelor's in finance from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Follow along Instagram Twitter Blog

The Most Dangerous Misconceptions about the 4% Safe Withdrawal Rate
2641
So much of personal finance and early retirement #literature is predicated on the 4% safe withdrawal rate that it’s easy to forget that the “rule” was discovered in the 1990s by the original Freak in the Spreadsheets, Bill Bengen. And man, the financial media loves to splash sensational headlines about the 4% rule all over the place (“The founder of the 4% rule just changed it!”). You know the kind. But there are a lot of misconceptions about the 4% rule, including the recent criticisms that it’s no longer valid. If you ever want to retire, this episode is a must-listen. I welcomed Brian Feroldi onto the show to talk about the underlying assumption that makes the 4% rule work—over time, the stock market generally goes up. Brian's new book (aptly named Why Does the Stock Market Go Up?) is out now. Sources cited Historical bond returns Follow along Instagram Twitter Newsletter

Why Owners & Renters Alike Would Benefit from a Housing Market Cooldown
2940
Today's episode is about the current reality of the US housing market (and stock market, to some degree) and how it's—paradoxically—not actually good for anyone, renters and owners alike. The one group it is benefiting? Investors. The episode dives into why I think a cooldown is inevitable, and focuses more on why human shelter turning into an inflated asset class is dangerous for everyone who needs a house to live in. Look no further than Canada’s precarious situation and increasing homelessness for a cautionary tale. My guest this week (Brandon of Mad FIentist fame) lends his perspective as someone who narrowly escaped the bubble burst in 2008 and ended up losing money on his next property—only to be priced out entirely in 2022. For context, Brandon retired a multimillionaire at age 34. He rents.

How to Buy Back Your Time: Outsourcing Tasks with Farnoosh Torabi
2873
Today's episode is all about outsourcing, a topic around which my views have evolved over the years. (Read: As you get older and busier, you're less interested in "doing it all," apparently.) We discuss how to determine what's worth outsourcing in your life and how much to pay for it, as well as address some common objections. My guest today, Farnoosh Torabi, is an icon in the personal finance world (and a mother of 2!) and she's got some #hottakes on the value of her (and your) time.

Investing in the Age of "Overvalued" Stocks & Homes with Nick Maggiulli
2068
Today, my friend Nick Maggiulli (COO of Ritholtz Wealth Management & former data scientist, as well as author of Of Dollars & Data and his new book, Just Keep Buying) joined me to talk about something that’s been (justifiably) freaking me out a little bit lately. To boil it down to its most layman's terms is the government’s money printing the reason why stocks and homes are worth so much more now, and does that mean we’re headed for a crash?  More to the point: What the hell do we do about it? I think you’ll enjoy the little history lesson throwback (Kansas farmland in the 1970s, anyone?), the explanation of quantitative easing and expansionary monetary policy (I wish my Econ 101 professor could see my B+ self now), and—most importantly—the conversation I had with Nick about what we’re supposed to make of all this. Here's the Politico article referenced. Point of clarification: We reference the S&P 500's PE ratio (25 as of this recording) and Shiller PE ratio, or CAPE ratio (36 as of this recording), in this episode, and (somewhat confusingly) switch between the two in the conversation. Nick originally describes the CAPE ratio, and then I ask him his opinion of the current PE ratio.

Today’s episode dives into the math behind why you may need to save less than you think for retirement, with two solid examples from my own life.

Negotiating Tactics that Actually Work
2604
Today, we're digging into negotiation tips that actually work—no perfecting crafty word play, performing mental jujitsu on a recruiter, or documenting months of "wins" required. Since I'm not a negotiation expert (just a gal who enjoys negotiating), I brought in two guests today: Miranda Martin, a CEO Coach who speaks to money mindset, and a dear friend of mine, Career Coach Darci, who speaks to compensation research and recruiter relations. Here's the blog post that complements this piece—it's all about how I increased my income.

The Unexpected Problem with Your Financial Goals
2294
Today’s episode is about the one major issue we all share with our financial planning: As humans, we’re bad at anticipating what’s going to make us happy.  Yep—it’s kinda hard to plan for what you think you’re going to want in 40 years, huh? Especially when some of those decisions tend to be inflexible. You’ll also hear from Sam Dogen (a.k.a., Financial Samurai) about his journey retiring—then un-retiring—at age 34.  You can preorder Sam’s book here. Here’s more information about why humans are bad at predicting what’s going to make us happy (or unhappy), and here’s the article I referenced about optimizing your tax strategy for early retirement.

Navigating the U.S. Healthcare System Without Getting Financially F***ed
3125
The healthcare marketplace in the United States is confusing, complex, and expensive. Why is it the way it is? Has it always been this way? Is it this way everywhere? These were my questions when I began this deep dive.  After reading a couple books, going on a week-long internet deep dive, and interviewing a healthcare consultant, I felt ready to bring some of my initial findings to you. Big thanks to Taylor, a healthcare consultant, for being interviewed for this episode, and Kaleigh, for sharing her experience giving birth to her daughter.  Snag a copy of Taylor's TEMPLATE FOR DENIED INSURANCE CLAIMS. Since this is a relatively fact-filled episode, sources are listed below by claim. FOLLOW ALONG Money with Katie Blog Money with Katie Instagram Money with Katie Twitter Sign up for the Newsletter! CLAIMS & MORE RESOURCES Any claim that doesn’t have a URL attached came from the book The Healing of America by T. R. Reid.  “Of the 11 richest countries in the world, America’s healthcare system ranks 11th. The judgment metrics are as follows: Access to care, care process, administrative efficiency, equity, and healthcare outcomes. The U.S. ranked last in four of the five criteria, with the exception of “care process,” for which we ranked second. Historical deep dive resource “The U.S. spends roughly the same amount as a percentage of GDP on Medicare and Medicaid alone that the rest of the rich countries spend insuring their entire populations, and the private sector spends even more.” “Estonia, Slovenia, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Korea, Israel… all of these countries have lower infant mortality rates than the United States.” “And pharmaceutical companies do spend, on average, around 20% of their total revenues on R&D.” “The U.S. actually ranks sixth in the World Index of Healthcare Innovation, behind Switzerland, Germany, and the Netherlands.” “A new analysis from insurance giant Humana itself and the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine found that between $760 billion and $935 billion—or about a quarter of all U.S. healthcare spending—is considered “waste.”” Comments about Sweden’s economy and benefits FULL TRANSCRIPT AVAILABLE AT HTTPS://PODCAST.MONEYWITHKATIE.COM

Is "Financial Independence" a Sign of... a Problem?
1390
Today, we hear from Dr. Anna Hulett, an industrial organizational psychologist (think female Adam Grant), about the state of work in the United States and why there’s a small legion of Millennials obsessed with financial independence retiring early.  Is financial independence a sign of… a problem? We examine data from other places (read: Scandinavian countries) where employment rates are higher, people are happier, and – ironically – the taxes and social safety nets are extreme. There’s a LOT to unpack here. Here’s the article referenced throughout. Follow along Blog Instagram Twitter

Is House-Hacking Still Lucrative in 2022's Housing Market?
1718
Ever seen folks on the internet talk about house hacking? It's – admittedly – a magical concept if you can pull it off, and basically involves living for free by buying a place and then having your tenant foot the bill. As someone who loves free shit, I was IN. Except... the cost of homes has skyrocketed, and the price of rent (in a lot of places) hasn't risen as much. What does that mean for those trying to get in now? Big thanks to Mallory (@fuelingfinancialfreedom on Instagram) for being my #RichGirl interviewee for today's episode.

A SPENDING PROBLEM?: What Gambling Addiction Research Teaches Us About Our Financial Behavior
1994
Today's episode dives into gambling research (via Chief of the Stanford Addiction Medicine Dual Diagnosis Clinic, Dr. Anna Lembke) and what it teaches us about our own dopamine pathways: Specifically, how strange it is that we can get the most dopamine when something objectively bad is happening (like losing money while gambling). We'll discuss unhealthy relationships with spending, earning, saving, and – bonus! – we'll hear from 3 members of the Money with Katie community who share their stories about spending problems. Finally, we'll review two major tactics you can try to address the issue (whether you're more of a compulsive spender or saver). A big thanks to #RichGirls Cynthia, Kate, and Taylor for their vulnerability.
