How to (Actually) Make Managing Your Money Fun
In today’s bonus episode, we’re diving into hitting your money goals while still having fun!
Ready to Stack Some Benjamins in 2022?
Welcome to this end of year bonus episode!
As we’re winding down and wrapping things up for 2021, one of the best things we can do is setting things up to make it easier to achieve our family and financial goals.
For us, it’s doing a review of the numbers to see what’s worked and what’s not. We’re also spending time now deciding on what we really want to do in 2022 while of course keeping some flexibility because COVID is still a thing.
A big challenge many families face is creating and sticking with a plan that allows them to pay down their debts, save for priorities, and invest more.
Today’s episode has something that I think will be a huge help.
I had the pleasure of chatting with Joe Saul-Sehy of the award winning Stacking Benjamins and personal finance author Emily Guy Birken about their new book, Stacked: Your Serious Guide to Modern Money Management.
Which is a mouthful of a title, but I got to tell you, the thing that jumped out at me about the book was how fun it was to read!
Joe and Emily do an incredible job not just explaining key financial points, but they weave it in with game references (Oregon Trail, Tetris, and Monopoly are included in the first few chapters), but they have inside jokes, comics, and more.
It’s all about making personal finance accessible and well, not boring.
So if you’re looking for a reset, reboot, whatever you want to call it, I think you'll enjoy our conversation!
