Great podcast! Very informative and helpful! Keep up the hard work. I recommend the podcast and its irreverent format!

Description

Live like a Financial Rock Star. Scott has made the money moron mistakes so you don’t have to. He teaches you how to think differently about money, so you can get out of debt, get started investing, and generate passive income with real estate. Scott lived the paycheck-to-paycheck lifestyle, but by age 35, he turned it all around and became a self-made millionaire and is now on a mission to help you. If you’re stressed out or worried about money, the Scott Alan Turner podcast will help. Foolproof finances with unbiased advice (no sponsors, no advertisers). Life change, guaranteed. If you mixed Dave Ramsey, Clark Howard, Rachel Hollis, and Tony Robbins together with a healthy dose of entertainment, rock n roll, and a splash of Star Trek, this show is what you would get.
