5/21/2019
More
Today on the show, we break down how we made 3 recent big, scary decisions in our Worth Project. Including, Jordan making the leap to leave his job. You already know we’re moving to Hawaii. We’ve said that. But now it’s real. Here’s the update that will take us from the UK to Hawaii, via California. Wheels up on August 12th. Here we go! A case of the somedays is over. Jordan is leaving his job. This is the omg. We’re not independently wealthy, so we’re going to live off my income. I’m...

#12: Creating the life you want on the income that you have - with Danny Kofke

5/14/2019
More
Danny Kofke is a special education teacher who really knows what he values....and puts his money where his mouth is. He's had the opportunity to earn triple his income but realized that he's truly content with Redbox and Subway date nights if that means he gets to spend more time with his family. Honestly, listening to Danny made Jordan and I feel even more at ease with financial and lifestyle decisions we've made. In this episode Danny shares: We loved talking with Danny and how he's made...

#11: How I got my first freelance clients

5/7/2019
More
When we left off at the end of episode 9, my student loan experience, I had just finished paying off six figures. But I had also just walked out of my job, post-panic attack. And I walked out with no job prospects. This was very unlike me. I don’t even know how, but Jordan was supportive. Most people in my situation would start applying for jobs. But we were in this weird place. We’d been in London for 1.5 years. We thought we’d be living here for 2ish years max, so I was in a weird place...

#10: Shame free debt - with Shannon Lee Simmons

4/30/2019
More
This week on the podcast we’re talking with Shannon Lee Simmons about creating a shame-free, blame-free debt repayment plan so we can all live debt free. Something's gotta go. We fell in love with our pale aqua, retro, little car. But after answering our life planning questions we realized she wasn't our thing anymore. It was a tough decision but we are not looking back. Well, maybe a few more drives through the English countryside this spring. Check out the show notes for pictures! This...

#9: 6 lessons from paying off six figures of student loan debt

4/23/2019
More
This week on the show we’re talking about my student loans. We’ll give you strategies to pay them off, but more importantly, we talk about how to find balance and not let those loans drive you crazy. And we’re also talking about what it’s like to get married when you’re financially out of balance, something that’s not talked about enough. When thinking about what we were going to discuss this week on student loan debt, Jordan was like “I don’t remember having any issues with your loans.”...

#8: How to launch a lifestyle experiment - with Bela and Spencer

4/16/2019
More
We have Bela and Spencer of the blog Tiny Migrations on the show this week. When I first found their blog, I was immediately drawn in. They live in the most beautiful, idyllic tiny home I’ve ever seen tucked in the Santa Cruz mountains. But aside for the beautiful design, what sucked me in was their lifestyle choices. Guys, they look at life as a big, beautiful experiment and it is so inspiring. Their story starts just like so many stories: stuck in a city paying a lot in rent. But rather...

#7: Our money mindset shifts

4/9/2019
More
Four years ago one of the first articles I was asked to write was about money mindset. And let me tell you, I gave it one big old eye roll. Honestly, I thought money mindset was a joke. A sham. If there wasn’t real data and studies on it, it must not exist. To me, money was just numbers. You save, you invest, and eventually, you retire. The numbers work and that’s all there is to it. Guys, I was wrong. I have done a full 180 - we both have - with our money mindset. This is such a hard...

#6: Life is too short to have a career you hate - with Belma McCaffrey

4/2/2019
More
Not sure if you’re in the right career? Or do you feel pretty certain that you’re on the wrong career track, but you don’t know how to change? Well, then stick around. How many people feel disengaged or uninspired or downright unhappy with their career choice? A lot. A 2017 Gallup survey found that 70% of Americans hate their job or are completely disengaged at work. 70%. Oh my. If you fall into that 70%, or if you feel like maybe you’re not on the right career track, this is going to be...

#5: Our biggest money mistakes

3/26/2019
More
Today on The Worth Project we’re getting really honest about our money. We’re talking about what we’ve done with our money in the past to get us to this point, our biggest money mistakes, and some of the changes we’re making going forward. Some of these mistakes are very cringeworthy (like that time Jordan called a loan shark…) and some of the new habits or defaults we’ve created that are really helpful. We talk about the cash money and we also talk about our money mindsets, which we’ve...

More
Have you ever said, ”How is it Christmas already?” Or “How is that kid I babysat already in college?” Part of living a great life is living a life that you remember. We can all get sucked into the grind of day-to-day life causing us to watch the weeks slip by. Our guest today gives us tips to actually create a life we remember. She helps people spend more time on things that matter and less time on things that don’t. Today we’re speaking with Laura Vanderkam who is the author of several...

#3: Curing a case of the somedays

3/11/2019
More
This week on The Worth Project Podcast, we are talking about the most unique gift we have ever received, how we translated our life plan into a money plan. And our visit to a Michelin star pub. Yes, a local neighborhood pub with one of the most coveted restaurant awards in the world. Sitting together on my parent’s patio to make our budget was what got us moving on our life plan. Making our budget got us over our case of the “somedays.” We over-share how we made our budget, our biggest...

3/4/2019

He has been named “One of the 35 most influential people in financial services,” and has been inducted into the Financial Planning Magazine Hall of Fame. Yep, there’s a financial planning hall of fame. Erica and Jordan were thrilled to have George Kinder on the podcast. Erica and Jordan used his book and website to change their life trajectory. His books and training are all about freedom — and who doesn’t like the sound of that? For 30 years, he was a practicing financial planner and tax...

#1: How we answered "what are we doing with our lives?"

3/3/2019
More
“What am I doing with my life?” This is the question Erica has been asking herself since, well, graduating college. And one she could never really answer, until now. What helped her finally get there? The questions in the financial life planning process. The financial life planning process helped Jordan and Erica actually set money and life goals they cared about, rather than only focusing on the standard money goals we’re all told we should have (buying a home, taking an annual vacation,...
