00:36:31

Let's be real for a second. The idea of traveling in a group hasn't always been my cup of tea. Something about it always brought the same sense of fear of being in junior high and waiting for someone to pick me to be on their team. What if the other travelers don't like or I don't fit in?

However, there is definitely something to be said about having an expertly planned trip where I can avoid the stress of planning it all and great adventures that are within my budget. Gavin Delany, from Stride Travel, has read my mind. Stride Travel is a company that connects you with the best expertly planned trip for you so you can save time and money and most importantly have some epic adventure! 


Let's Dig In

  • Learn how to have an authentic travel experience on any budget
  • Uncover what some of the biggest costs are when you travel that you might not be aware of
  • Hear some of Gavin's favorite travel adventures
  • Why you need to visit places now that are being affected by climate change (and what those places are)
  • Gavin's tips to travel better in the upcoming year

Unlock Healing with Reiki (with Shannon Marzella)

For most of us, we know what we should do, but life gets in the way. These blockages can build up over time and stop us from achieving our goals. 

Reiki is a technique I started using last year to help clear blockages so I could achieve goals. On this episode, we're dishing all you need to know about Reiki with Shannon Marzella, who is an intuitive and Reiki energy healer. 


What You'll Learn

  • What is Reiki and how can it help you with your finances
  • What happens to you in a Reiki session
  • What causes us all to create blockages to achieving goals
  • A few takeaways from my Reiki session with Shannon 
  • Why alternative healing might be the missing piece in your life - and why it is not as scary as it sounds

Align Your Investment Dollars To Support The LGBTQia+ Community With Jay Lipman
00:33:44

June is pride month, although I’d argue that every month should be about loving others no matter what they look like, what their sexual orientation is, or what their life story is. In my opinion, as long as you aren’t hurting anyone else, you have every right to be you, just like I have every right to be me. That may be my view, but I was curious, with the rise of an inclusive culture and social responsibility, how are companies and investors supporting the LGBTQia+ community.

My guest and fellow millennial is Jay Lipman, co-founder, and president of the Fintech asset management sustainable investing firm Ethic. On this episode, we're covering a lot of topics including social responsibility investing and what companies are doing to support the LGBTQia+ community.


What You'll Learn

  • Are we seeing a strong shift in companies towards better equality with LGBTQ workers or are we still just talking about it without any definitive action
  • How and why are companies aligning their investment portfolios to support the LGBTQia+ community 
  • If you’re an investor and want to support the LGBTQ community, are there certain things you can be doing
  • What lead Jay to a career in social entrepreneurship
  • What are trends that are emerging in the social/sustainable investing space
  • What can we do as millennials with less cash to build a sustainable investing practice

Don't Do Resolutions, Do You
00:20:34

New Year’s resolutions are stupid – don’t waste time or energy making resolutions. I’ve got a better plan I’m going to share with you on today’s episode.

According to U.S. News, 80% of New Year's resolutions fail by February. And, in a poll that was taken in 2017, 53% of people said their resolution was to save money and 45% was to lose weight and get in shape while 25% of people said they just wanted to have more sex. Ok, well those aren’t bad resolutions, right. But they don’t stick.

So what can you do – you’ve got to have a different plan for success – and it’s not about resolutions it’s about action.

What You'll Learn

  • How to relax into the new year without a laundry list of resolutions
  • Why resolutions don't work
  • How to set goals and make an action plan that will work
  • How to embrace you in the new year

Best of: Crockpot Your Savings
00:24:19

We're featuring another Best Of episode from last year that was a listener favorite.

All personal finance experts can agree on one thing – starting to save early will almost always help you reach your lifestyle goals quicker and with more ease than those who wait longer. When you think about your savings there are two ways you can save – the crockpot style or the microwave style.

Inspired by a recent industry article in Financial Planning Magazine, thinking about a crockpot for your savings strategy makes pretty good sense. With any crockpot recipe, the idea is simple. You gather all your ingredients ahead of time, throw them into the crockpot, turn it on low and slow for 6-8 hours, and then you have an almost always perfect meal sure to wow anyone.


What You'll Learn

  • We’ll chat about the crockpot method of savings
  • Why a crockpot method might make more sense than microwaving your savings
  • Focus on saving little by little over time with consistency so whenever you reach the age you would like to quit working, you’re investments and savings have spent some time “cooking together.”
  • Let’s talk about what you can and can’t control with your savings
  • Some guidelines to always keep in mind with savings

Best of: Budget for Your Life, Not Your Bank Account
00:22:34

On this special Christmas episode, we're featuring a Best Of episode that was a listener favorite. It takes some work to spend $2 million a month like Johnny Depp has been the last few years. I mean, come on, that does take some work to do that (but I’d love the chance to try, right). You don’t need to have Johnny Depp’s bank account though to let yourself get carried away with your budget and spending.

What is it that you’re playing for? You see, even Johnny Depp’s financial advisors started to waive some caution flags in front of him when his spending got carried away. When this happens, it’s time to dial in and budget for your life, not your bank account.


What You'll Learn

  • We’ll chat about the ridiculousness of Johnny Depp’s spending and what you can learn from it
  • How you can visualize your own spending in a way that makes sense and keeps you motivated
  • Where do you begin to set some boundaries around spending or even your goals
  • What are you playing for - this is the million dollar question

Bye-Bye Savings Bonds and Hello Modern Savings for Kids with Mimi Chan
00:39:47

Millennials are leading the way when it comes to modern savings. There's a strong trend towards gifting experiences over stuff that's honestly really refreshing, and we're seeing this trend with children's gifts as well. Play yards and plastic trucks are great, but what about gifting your child (or someone you know) with money towards their goals like college or even buying a house in the future? Today's podcast guest, Mimi Chan, is sharing how her company, Littlefund, is shaking things in the world of gifting.


What You'll Learn

  • Why we needed a gift-giving evolution in this country
  • What's prompted the trends towards giving experiences over stuff and how that is changing the way we view our finances
  • How to give monetary gifts towards future goals for your children or your friends' children (hint, great for the holidays)
  • How growing up with immigrant parents shaped Mimi's own money story and her drive to start Littlefund 


Links Mentioned


More about Littlefund

Littlefund, a modern gifting platform that makes it easy for family and friends to gift savings towards a child’s goals with an FDIC insured account which earns interest of 1% APY that compounds daily. So it truly is the gift that keeps on giving (and at a rate higher than the average savings account to boot). Accounts can be set up by parents with short-term goals such as a trip to Disneyland or swim lessons, or longer range goals like saving for college. Gifters can send a Littlefund gift at any time by using a parent’s email address as the family being gifted does not need to have a Littlefund account in advance.

00:47:29

Article after article will have you focusing on giving up your daily coffee or that mid-afternoon trip to the juice bar to better yourself financially.

  • Tori shares valuable lessons she learned walking away from a lucrative job that she knew wasn't right for her and how her ER fund saved the day
  • Find out why she's passionate about fighting for women's financial rights and the work she's doing to change the status quo
  • Wonder what a donut and your money have in common? Tori shares her most important financial takeaway to help you get rid of money shame and guilt

HGTV's Good Bones Mina & Karen on Taking Risks & Trading In a 9 to 5
00:30:12

On a recent trip to Indianapolis (my hometown), I had the privilege of joining Mina and Karen of HGTV's Good Bones for coffee and a chat about their thriving career. This mother-daughter home remodeling duo is hilarious (as you'll hear). Karen, a former practicing lawyer, and her daughter, Mina, decided to say "no thank you" to the typical 9 to 5 career, took a risk with money she had saved in an IRA and started a thriving remodeling business in Indianapolis. And then, one day, HGTV came calling, and the rest is history.


What You'll Learn

This was one of my very favorite interviews. Not only were we sitting in a super cool coffee shop in Indianapolis, but I was so inspired by Mina and Karen's story of taking risks, charting your own path, and having a sense of humor about the moments that don't work out. Not everyone gets a call from HGTV, but I think we can all aspire to find a career that we feel good about and helps other people at the same time!

  • Mina shares how she wisely invested in an IRA in college and those funds ended up funding their very first home purchase
  • Find out how they choose their remodeling projects and hear some great stories about some of the craziest houses they've worked on
  • Be inspired by Mina's pledge to not work a typical 9 to 5 and why she decided to take the risk of starting a remodeling business
  • They share the story of how HGTV came calling and why they thought it was a shady call and so not real
  • Learn how they've continued to grow their career and why they're not resting solely on HGTV's success

What You May Not Know About Money Taboos That Might Be Sabotaging Your Growth
00:29:15

We all know that money taboos exist except we don't really talk about them. In fact, we don't really talk about anything in relation to money unless we absolutely have to. Have you ever stopped to think why this is? In the U.S., we have a terrible reputation of not making enough strides when it comes to financial literacy - which in turn enables money taboos to go right on existing.

We need to talk though. We need to understand our money taboos and what role they play in our financial success and then we need to teach others how to do the same.


What You'll Learn

  • To start, I'm going back and sorting through some financial literacy history in the U.S. to make a case for why money taboos exist
  • Who is to blame - teachers, parents, government, etc? What do you think
  • What happens if we let money taboos continue to grow without putting out the flames
  • Steps you can take to break free from any money taboos holding you back
  • Why our closest relationships are the place we need to start with when it comes to talking about money
  • Discussion about the states mandating financial literacy, and why there are only 5

I Need Help with My Investing Strategy + Other Burning Investing Questions With Doug Boneparth
00:37:46

I don't think you can ever learn too much about investing and growing your wealth. While investing can seem super complicated, the good news is that there are a lot of resources these days to help you out (like this podcast). One of them is my good friend and fellow CFP®, Doug Boneparth. Doug's joined us on the podcast a few times in the past, and he's back again to help me answer some of your #AskShannah investing questions.

Questions Asked

  • Are cannabis stocks the next great thing or just a fad in your opinion and what do I need to know?
  • Should I be investing as much as I can in my 401(k) or should I look at an IRA or a ROTH? I know you always say it depends on our own situation and goals – what would be an advantage or investing more in my 401(k) above the match?


What You'll Learn

  • How to match your investing strategy with your lifestyle goals
  • What is active vs. passive investing anyway
  • Why you should never think of stocks as "the next best thing"
