I'm posting today's episode from my hotel room in Toronto Canada.  I think I may be losing my voice, but I still wanted to put out an episode for you.

I mentioned last week that Popcorn Finance was named as a finalist for two Plutus Awards.  One of those nominations was for Best Series for the Poppin' with F.I.R.E. series I did earlier this year.  So today I'm bringing you one of my favorite episodes from that series! 

Jillian Shares how a tough experience as a child pushed her towards financial independence.

Today's Guest: Jillian Johnsrud from Montana Money Adventures (https://www.montanamoneyadventures.com/)

One day Paula found herself making more money in her side hustle than in her low paying day job. Paula wanted to quit to pursue this new path, but she was hesitant due to the instability that comes with entrepreneurship. She gravitated towards real estate investing and her desire for some financial stability lead her down the path to financial independence.

Together we discuss how achieving financial independence doesn’t necessarily mean early retirement, but instead can provide the financial security needed to pursue a career that truly brings you joy.

If anyone tells you that FOMO isn't real they're lying!  FOMO or the Fear Of Missing Out is just a big of an issue as ever.  For Baby Boomers it was called Keeping Up With the Jones or KUWJ, not nearly as catchy.  But regardless of what you call it millennials are being hit with it especially hard.

Bonus: Our Student's Financial Health Matters
11:36

April 25th, 2018 is Financial Health Matters Day, a.k.a. #FinHealthMatters Day.  This day was created by CFSI to bring attention to America’s financial health.  This year the focus is specifically on the financial health of our students.

There are so many financial issues plaguing future, current & past students

-Rising tuition costs-

-More than $1.3 Trillion in student loan debt-

-Lack of financial education in our school system-

Because this situation is affects student's financial health in so many ways, this issue cannot be fixed by addressing just one area.  We need to look at the financial situation of our students as a whole.

One of my goals for 2018 is to read 12 new books.  I started the year off with The No-Spend Challenge Guide by Jen Smith.  I enjoyed the book so much that I reached out to the author to see if she would come on the podcast, and she agreed!  So in this episode I sit with Jen from SavingWithSpunk.com to discuss her book and doing a No Spend Challenge.

Check out Jen's newest book Meal Planning on a Budget!

I had the privilege to sit down with the one and only Liz Weston of NerdWallet.com and AskLizWeston.com.  I first met Liz when she interviewed me and my wife for an article she was writing on the vicious debt cycle in which many people find themselves.  So when I found out that she would also be at FinCon I knew I had to find a way to have her on the podcast.

In this episode we discuss:

-How taboo the topic of debt and money have become

-More people than you may think are dealing with debt   

-Watching what others spend

-Much More!

Bonus Episode: BLACK FRIDAY GIVEAWAY!
06:51

Visit PopcornFinance.com/BlackFriday for the show notes & how to enter.  No purchase necessary.

I hate Black Friday. I hate it because I used to work in retail when I was in college. I would have to wake up between 2 and 3 am the next morning after enjoying my thanksgiving dinner to go to work. I would be there for at least 12 hours.  It would be a very, very long day. 

So, because of the trauma that I suffered on this day I will be doing a special giveaway. I will be giving away a 1 (one) month subscription to Netflix to incentivize people to stay home. You can just stay at home all day on black Friday and watch all the stuff that is on there.

This giveaway will run from 11/21/17 through 11/23/17 at 12pm pst.  There will be two ways for you to enter in to this giveaway. 

-First if you are not already subscribed to the Popcorn Finance Podcast, subscribe via your podcast player of choice.   Send a screenshot showing that you subscribed to contest@popcornfinance.com

-If you are already a subscriber, leave a review for the Popcorn Finance Podcast in the Apple podcast app or wherever you listen.  Send a screenshot of your review to contest@popcornfinance.com.

-For either submission please put Black Friday Giveaway or Netflix Giveaway in the subject line.

 I will do a random drawing of all submissions and notify the winner by 11pm pst on 11/23/17.

 This giveaway is completely free.  No purchase necessary. Just subscribe to the free Popcorn Finance Podcast or leave a review for the Popcorn Finance Podcast.

 However, you must promise that if you win this you will not go out shopping on Black Friday.  That is part of the deal (No, not really).  But it would be great if you didn’t harass those people that are just trying to do their job.
