Episode 22: Managing your money once you make over 6-figures with Eric Roberge

February 11, 2019

You've done it. You've worked hard, gotten the education, put in the long nights and early mornings to get to a point in your career where you're starting to make good money. Maybe you've even had a goal of hitting 6-figures and you did it! Now what? For the first time in your life, you're not necessarily struggling to pay your bills but you also know you're probably not making all the right financial choices. 

Should you be putting more in your 401K? Should you be investing elsewhere? How much should you put towards any lingering debt versus saving for big goals like buying a house or paying for a wedding? Do you spring for the expensive apartment or stay where you are?

Eric Roberge, founder of Beyond your Hammock, talked with us about many of these scenarios and how to approach money management once you start actually having some money. 

He helps with learning how to:

  • Take control of your cash flow
  • Develop a savings plan that enables financial freedom
  • Avoid costly mistakes that keep you stuck and struggling
  • Invest appropriately to create significant wealth
  • Enjoy the ability to use your time the way you want

Episode 19: “The Fast 5″: Are millennial women wealthy but miserable?

December 26, 2018

On this week's Fast 5, we talk about an interesting article that came out this week titled "Rich and miserable: the legacy baby boomers left for millennials". In short, the article highlights how millennials earn more than young adult households did at nearly any time in the past 50 years. This has particularly strong implications for women - both financially and mentally.

Join us for 5 minutes as we discuss whether we agree with some of the statements in the article - like how women are really struggling to make parenting work - and share your thoughts with us too!

Episode 15: Why bashing millennials won’t stop them from changing how we work

November 8, 2018
