I love the practical advice and genuine caring that Jill shows for everyone that looks for her help. Jill doesn't shame people for their past mistakes but helps them head in the right direction.

Great, honest & relatable advise on financial issues that affect life in the long & short term. You don't need $2 million saved in retirement for the suggestion to still help you. I've listened since she appeared on CNET's @the404 podcast.

BONUS: Small Business Bootcamp
1374
I am often asked about the best retirement plan options for entrepreneurs and sole proprietors. There's a lot of choices out there, and it's not always so easy to determine which plan makes the most sense, that's why on this episode we're glad to welcome back Michael Goodman for a little small business bootcamp! As the president of Wealthstream Advisors in New York City, Michael knows firsthand what it's like to run a small business. We'll touch on a variety of topics, including which retirement plan is the best choice for your situation. Among the options discussed: Individual Retirement Account (IRA): You can choose a traditional IRA, where you pay taxes in the future or a Roth, where you pay taxes today. Simplified Employee Pension (SEP-IRA): This is a good option for those who have up to 25 employees and want to offer a retirement benefit that is easy to operate. Savings Incentive Match Plan for Employees (SIMPLE IRA Plan): SIMPLE plans were aimed at slightly larger small business owners (usually up to 100 employees), who wanted to provide employees a way to save for retirement. Solo 401(k) plan: Alternatively referred to as an “individual 401(k)” or “uni-401(k),” this plan is geared to small business owners who have no employees (other than a spouse) and have the capacity to sock away a lot of dough. This special episode is part of the Small Business Podference presented by Dell Technologies.

Spring Housing Market Part Two
769
I think it's officially time for a deep dive on the spring housing market. Joining us this weekend is Maria Fregosi, the Chief Investment Officer at Homepoint Financial. Where is the housing market going next? Despite the fact that we are coming to the end of the pandemic with accelerated vaccinations, many companies have announced that employees working from home may continue to do so permanently.  That may allow some to seek out more affordable areas like Austin, Charlotte, Miami, and Nashville.  Some smaller cities have launched cash initiatives, home buying allowances, tax credits and money toward local goods and services to induce pandemic movers to relocate there.  If you are in the market to buy, you will need to run the basic numbers, including mortgage principal and interest, homeowners' insurance, and taxes. Add a line item for upkeep and maintenance, depending on the age of the house and its condition, factor in 1-3 percent of the purchase price annually.  And for the transaction itself, don’t forget about closing costs, which averaged more than $6,000 last year. It’s easy to gloss over things like mortgage loan application and appraisal fees, the title search and insurance, as well as legal and recording fees, because they seem to be built into the legal process, but you should ask for discounts along the way to see if you can push them down. Finally, even if the numbers appear to work, consider whether buying could preclude you from addressing other important financial issues in your life, like paying down student loans or saving for retirement. Just because a lender will fork over the dough, doesn't mean you should take it. Have a money question? Email me here. Please leave us a rating or review in Apple Podcasts.

The Unspoken Rules Part Two
690
You've landed a job. Now what? To help answer that question, we're joined this weekend by Gorick Ng, author of The Unspoken Rules: Secrets to Starting Your Career Off Right. No one tells you how to navigate your first day in a new role. No one tells you how to take ownership, manage expectations, or handle workplace politics. No one tells you how to get promoted. The answers to these professional unknowns lie in the unspoken rules, the certain ways of doing things that managers expect but don't explain and that top performers do but don't realize. The problem is, these rules aren't taught in school. Instead, they get passed down over dinner or from mentor to mentee, making for an unlevel playing field, with the insiders getting ahead and the outsiders stumbling along through trial and error. Until now. Have a money question? Email me here. Please leave us a rating or review in Apple Podcasts. "Jill on Money" theme music is by Joel Goodman, www.joelgoodman.com.

Bernie Madoff and The Wizard of Lies Part Two
1225
With the death of Bernie Madoff earlier this week, Mark and I decided to re-run an interview we did a few years back with Diana Henriques. Madoff is perhaps the most notorious name in the history of Wall Street.  By now we all know the story. Madoff conducted a Ponzi scheme that is considered to be the largest in U.S. history. Over the course of decades, Madoff stole billions of dollars from his clients and finally, amid the financial crisis of 2008, the crime came to a screeching halt. How on earth was he able to pull it off for so long, when there were plenty of warning signs and whistleblowers who tried to alert regulators that something was amiss? One of the journalists covering the scandal was Henriques, then a staff reporter at The New York Times, who specialized in investigative reporting on white-collar crime, market regulation and corporate governance. Diana used her countless hours of work as the lead reporter on the story as a catalyst to write the bestselling book, The Wizard of Lies: Bernie Madoff and the Death of Trust. Diana had incredible access, including the first interview with an imprisoned Madoff. Robert De Niro was so drawn to the character of Bernie Madoff as Henriques depicted him, that he bought the film rights to “The Wizard of Lies" and it was turned into a film for HBO. If you’ve yet to see “The Wizard of Lies,” go watch it. DVR it, stream it, whatever the method, just watch it. It’s incredibly well done and stars Robert De Niro as Bernie Madoff and Michelle Pfeiffer as Ruth Madoff.  Have a money question?

A World Without Email Part Two
891
This weekend I'm so excited to welcome back Cal Newport to the show, who joins us to talk about his latest book, A World Without Email: Reimagining Work in an Age of Communication Overload. Modern knowledge workers communicate constantly. Their days are defined by a relentless barrage of incoming messages and back-and-forth digital conversations, a state of constant, anxious chatter in which nobody can disconnect, and so nobody has the cognitive bandwidth to perform substantive work. There was a time when tools like email felt cutting edge, but a thorough review of current evidence reveals that the "hyperactive hive mind" workflow they helped create has become a productivity disaster, reducing profitability and perhaps even slowing overall economic growth. Equally worrisome, it makes us miserable. Humans are simply not wired for constant digital communication. We have become so used to an inbox-driven workday that it's hard to imagine alternatives. But they do exist. Have a money question? Email me here. Please leave us a rating or review in Apple Podcasts. "Jill on Money" theme music is by Joel Goodman, www.joelgoodman.com.

The Data Detective with Tim Harford Part Two

Tax Season and the Recovery Rebate Credit
1252
As tax season continues, this weekend we're bringing you one more episode sponsored by H&R Block. Stimulus payments have been a critical lifeline for many Americans during the coronavirus crisis. But what if you didn’t receive the full amount due to life changes such as a new baby or lower income? Thankfully there’s a way to solve this, in the form of a recovery rebate credit. The recovery rebate and your stimulus payments are actually one in the same. It’s just that the recovery rebate credit is paid as part of filing your return. Joining us this weekend to help make sense of it all is Kathy Pickering, the chief tax officer at H&R Block. As you're getting ready to file your taxes, remember that H&R Block has all your tax needs covered. Their experts have an average of 10 years’ experience. They’ve seen it all and can help get all the credits and deductions you deserve. Have a money question? Email me here. Please leave us a rating or review in Apple Podcasts.

It ended the year at nearly $30,000, up 296%. The surge continued full-steam into 2021. It took bitcoin 10 years in existence to reach $20,000 on most exchanges, on Dec. 15.  Then it took just 17 days to reach $30,000.Bitcoin broke through $30,000 for the first time on Jan. 2, then climbed to $32,000 just hours later. On Jan. 5, it broke $35,000, and on Jan. 7, it hit $40,000. Now it's regularly hitting $50,000. Crazy, right?

Side Hustle School with Chris Guillebeau
1225
No time like the present to start thinking about that side hustle you've always dreamed about. If a global pandemic doesn't get you motivated, I'm not sure what will. And if you are raking in some extra cash on the side, there will be tax consequences! That's why we're happy to bring you another episode that's sponsored by H&R Block. As you're getting ready to file your taxes, remember that H&R Block has all your tax needs covered. Their experts have an average of 10 years’ experience. They’ve seen it all and can help get all the credits and deductions you deserve. Okay, now back to your side hustle. Do you have to be an “entrepreneur,” replete with a big, fat business plan in hand, to make a little extra cash on the side? What if I told you that in 27 days you can come up with an idea, implement it, and potentially start making some extra income on the side? That is what you call a side hustle, which also happens to be the title of a book from Chris Guillebeau, who's nice enough to join us this weekend. While the thought of quitting your day job to pursue a business of your own may be intoxicating and even escapist, it may also be a bit unrealistic. Most of us can’t just up and quit a job that delivers a regular paycheck and benefits, to boot. But what if you could quickly and easily create an additional stream of income without giving up the security of a full-time job? Enter Chris and the side hustle. Have a money question?

GameStop: The Internet vs. Wall Street Part Two
914
When the worlds of finance and tech collide, my man, Jeff Bakalar, is my go to source! (And I'm his go to source, which is why he had me on his CNET show earlier in the week to help explain the concept of short selling. You can check it out here.) You've heard Jeff on the pod before, but in case you've forgotten, Jeff is the editor-at-large at CNET, and a total tech geek who's with us this weekend to help explain what in the world happened this week with GameStop and Reddit. GameStop, the brick-and-mortar video game seller that many presumed was destined to the dustbin of retailers, started to attract enormous interest from individual investors on Reddit, a message board where community members create content, submit links, and comment on specific topics (subreddits). The GameStop believers touted the upside as early as mid-2019, after Michael Burry (the guy featured in “The Big Short,” who bet against the housing market in the mid-2000’s) had amassed a big position in the company. The chatter continued into 2020, when GameStop was trading at about $4/share. GameStop saw the culmination of the mother of all short squeezes on January 27th, when the stock soared by more than 130 percent to nearly $350/share, almost ten times the value from the prior week and putting its year-to-date return at 900 percent. And remember folks, those who are investing in volatile stocks like GameStop should be prepared for a wild ride, and should only risk what they can afford to lose.  Have a money question?

The China Hustle Part Two
1131
Next up on the list of films to stream this holiday weekend is The China Hustle. The documentary begins amid the depths of the 2008 financial crisis, when we meet protagonist Dan David and a band of Wall Street outsiders. These detective-like investors operate on the fringes of the financial world, scouring global markets for money making opportunities. With the U.S. economy and markets in a tailspin, they turn to China, where there is what seems like a modern day gold rush. Chinese stock market indexes are doubling every year and the potential seems endless. There’s one problem, though: U.S. investors can’t participate because they are barred from investing directly in Chinese markets. But this is America, and people always find a way. A few Wall Street operators create a novel solution by bringing hundreds of promising Chinese companies directly to U.S. stock markets. All of the sudden, US investors can get in on the Chinese miracle, without leaving the comforting confines of the NYSE and the NASDAQ. It all seems to be going well, until detectives discover that most of the companies they’re investing in are frauds, producing phony balance sheets, claiming sham inventory levels and celebrating non-existent profits. The investors flip their strategy on its head and begin to master the art of short selling, essentially, betting that a company will fail. Have a money question? Email me here.

Chasing the FIRE Movement
1085
If you're looking for something to stream over the next week or so, we're going back into the archives this weekend. First up is the FIRE movement. Today we're re-airing an interview with Travis Shakespeare, director of a documentary called Playing with FIRE, which follows 35 year old Scott Rieckens, his wife Taylor, and their toddler Jovie as the family decides to embark on a year-long odyssey to understand the rules of the FIRE movement and test their willingness to reject the standard narrative of adult life. When Scott hears a prominent leader and “early retiree” in the FIRE movement subculture interviewed on a podcast, he enlists his wife to abandon everything they’ve been taught about the role of money in adulthood and instead focus on pursuing financial independence.  But doing so requires an about face since their current path has them spending every dime they make living the “Instagram” life in an expensive San Diego suburb, driving luxury cars, and eating at fancy restaurants.  It’s an interesting tale full of ups and downs. If the FIRE movement is something you’re interested in, this film is a must watch. Have a money question? Email me here. Please leave us a rating or review in Apple Podcasts.

Post Corona with Scott Galloway Part Two
1010

What do you do when you're faced with a big decision? If you're like most people, you probably make a pro and con list, spend a lot of time obsessing about decisions that didn't work out, get caught in analysis paralysis, endlessly seek other people's opinions to find just that little bit of extra information that might make you sure, and finally go with your gut. What if there was a better way to make quality decisions so you can think clearly, feel more confident, second-guess yourself less, and ultimately be more decisive and be more productive?

The Gift of Humanity Part Two

Since this episode is dropping on Thanksgiving we thought we’d do something a bit different. Instead of focusing on bettering ourselves financially, we wanted to introduce you to StoryCorps, a non-profit organization that strives to make the world better off by preserving and sharing stories, build connections and create a more just and compassionate world. In short, it serves as a good reminder of the things that matter most. And who better to help us stay in the giving thanks spirit than our guest Dave Isay, the founder and president of StoryCorps. His goal is simple: to use stories to remind us of our shared humanity, to strengthen and build the connections between people, to teach the value of listening, and to weave into the fabric of our culture the understanding that everyone’s story matters. At the same time, StoryCorps is creating an invaluable archive for future generations as every interview is housed at the Library of Congress. So as you’re sitting around this Thanksgiving weekend with family and friends, I encourage you to use StoryCorps Connect (virtually) or the StoryCorps app (in person) and take part in The Great Thanksgiving Listen, a national movement that empowers people of all ages to create an oral history of the contemporary United States by recording an interview.

He joined us to talk about his personal memoir, Invested: Changing Forever the Way Americans Invest, in which he describes his passion to have Main Street participate in the growing economy as investors and owners, not only earners. Schwab opens up about the challenges he faced while starting his fledgling company in the 1970s and recounts the company’s game-changing sale to Bank of America, and how, in the end, the merger almost doomed his organization. A remarkable story of a company succeeding by challenging norms and conventions through decades of change, Invested also offers unique insights and lifelong principles for readers, the values that Schwab has lived and worked by that have made him one of the most successful entrepreneurs of our time.

The Election and Your Money Part Two
1054
In October 2016, I warned that in advance of the presidential election, “you should not make changes to your portfolio in an effort to outfox the tried and true investment strategy of identifying your personal goals and objectives; creating and sticking to a diversified asset allocation plan, using low cost index funds; and rebalancing two to four times a year.” Four years later, I am sticking to that guidance, so let’s just pinky-swear that you won’t try to adjust your investments or time whatever market movement you expect, and I promise not to lecture you about the folly of trying to time the market, OK? To help us break down how the upcoming election may impact your investments, we're joined by Nathan Sheets, Chief Economist and Head of Global Macroeconomic Research at PGIM Fixed Income.  Have a money question?

The rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer has been the story of economic inequality for the last 50 years, and COVID-19 appears set to continue the trend. I joined CBS Sunday Morning with a look at the downside, and what one business figure calls the upside, of income disparity. Have a money question? Email me here.

This Labor Day weekend we have a three part interview with Roger Ferguson, President and Chief Executive Officer of TIAA, the leading provider of retirement services in the academic, research, medical, and cultural fields and a Fortune 100 financial services organization. Mr. Ferguson is the former Vice Chairman of the Board of Governors of the U.S. Federal Reserve System.  He represented the Federal Reserve on several international policy groups and served on key Federal Reserve System committees, including Payment System Oversight, Reserve Bank Operations, and Supervision and Regulation.  As the only Governor in Washington, D.C. on 9/11, he led the Fed’s initial response to the terrorist attacks, taking actions that kept the U.S. financial system functioning while reassuring the global financial community that the U.S. economy would not be paralyzed. We did this interview right before things shut down in March, but because we thought it was so good we didn't want to waste it!  Have a money question? Email me here.

Now more than ever, it seems the more you know, the better off you’ll be, especially in your career. Plenty of experts argue that anyone who wants to develop a skill, play an instrument, or lead their field should start early, focus intensely, and rack up as many hours of deliberate practice as possible. If you dabble or delay, you’ll never catch up to the people who got a head start. But a closer look at research on the world’s top performers, from professional athletes to Nobel laureates, shows that early specialization is the exception, not the rule.   Our guest this weekend, David Epstein, uses his latest book, Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World, to examine the world’s most successful athletes, artists, musicians, inventors, forecasters and scientists. He discovered that in most fields, especially those that are complex and unpredictable, generalists, not specialists, are primed to excel. Have a money question? Email me here.

Coronavirus: Workplace Diversity Part Two
568
If the pandemic has acted as an accelerant to business trends, it has also become an accelerant to inequality. Last year, before the onset of coronavirus, the Census Bureau found income inequality was at its highest level in 50 years, with two-thirds of the total wealth in the country owned by the richest 5-percent. Meanwhile, 4 out of 10 American adults said they would have difficulty covering a $400 unexpected expense, more than 38 million Americans are living in poverty, and more than 14 million children went hungry last month. When discussing these facts and figures, it is important to remember that there are people behind the numbers. To do a deeper dive with us on this topic, we're joined by Dane Holmes, co-founder and CEO at Eskalera, a diversely founded company, committed to providing employees and managers with the knowledge and skills to build a more inclusive culture and helping organizations drive systemic and sustainable change.

Coronavirus: The Labor Force Part Two
922
The labor force has been decimated over the last several weeks, and perhaps no group has been impacted more than the older works. According to an analysis from the Economic Policy Institute, older workers are less likely than younger ones to have jobs that can be done remotely. Almost 8 in 10 workers over 65 can’t telecommute, compared with about 6 in 10 between 35 to 44, the analysis found. At the same time, older Americans may be at higher risk of complications from the coronavirus due to their higher rate of chronic health issues. To discuss this and much, much more, we're joined by labor economist Teresa Ghilarducci.  Any time I get a chance to chat with Teresa, I consider it a must listen.  Have a money question?

Make Your Bed Part Three
629
In honor of the Memorial Day holiday, we're giving you a break from the money talk, and instead re-airing an interview we did back in 2017 with retired Admiral William “Bill” McRaven. If Bill’s name sounds familiar, it’s because he presided over the 2011 Navy SEAL raid that resulted in the killing of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. Bill was the man who identified the body when it was flown back to Afghanistan and told President Obama that the U.S. finally had their guy. A few years later in 2014, the four-star admiral and 37-year Navy SEAL veteran delivered the commencement speech at his alma mater, the University of Texas at Austin (Hook ‘em Horns!). Little did McRaven know that his address, which spoke to how students could overcome challenges and change themselves, would become a viral hit with more than 10 million views online. In January, 2015 Bill became the Chancellor of the entire University of Texas system and was encouraged to expand his commencement speech into a book, Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life…And Maybe the World. We hope you enjoy this brief diversion from the money talk. Have a money question? Email me here. Please leave us a rating or review in Apple Podcasts.
