101 Financial Excellence: All Good Things Come to an End

3/27/2012

101 Financial Excellence: All Good Things Come to an End, Mar 27, 2012. Show notes: I really apologize for the audio issues again today. I thought I could record through the video on Ustream to get around the sound card issues I have but it still came through with issues. Anyway, in episode 100 I told listeners the show would continue in some form indefinitely. Since then, however, I feel like God has been calling me in a different direction. In an effort to follow His calling, Janelle and...

100 Financial Excellence: Listener Feedback and Coming Changes, Mar 13, 2012. Show notes: Today got off to a rough start but I managed to power through it. Our second computer crashed (the one that does the recording) and I had trouble with my main computer. The audio wasn't working quite right, and I wasn't able to play sound through the computer and mixer without it sounding really bad. So I had to record the show with no bump music. But no big deal, because I could do some...

Episode 98: Can you Survive on a Teacher's Salary? Feb 21, 2012. Today I interviewed Danny Kofke, author of How to Survive (and Perhaps Thrive) on a Teacher's Salary (affiliate link). Danny is a wonderful voice of sanity in a world where we constantly clamor for higher income because we "just don't make enough." I really enjoyed the interview and I think Danny's words of wisdom are so valuable for anyone living on any income (not just a teacher's salary). Don't forget: Living In Financial...

2/14/2012

Episode 97: eCredable is the long awaited alternative to the FICO score, Feb 14, 2012. Today I interviewed Steve Ely, CEO of eCredable. eCredable is a credit reporting agency but they do things a little different than the big three (Experian, Trans-Union, and Equifax). eCredable looks at more than just your debt payments and history. They actually consider your utility bills, rent, and any other payments you've made over time. How cool is that? . Sponsor: MozyPro Online Backup: Simple,...

Episode 95: Importance of your Personal Brand in Business, Jan 31, 2012. I mentioned back in Episode 93 that my show is black or white. You either love my rambling or you hate it. That's because of my personality. My audience either connects with my personality or it doesn't. Either way is ok with me because I know I can't please everyone. I have learned to embrace who I am as my personal brand and use that to connect with my audience. Today's show is about the importance of understanding...

Episode 94: How and Why I Got Out of Debt: My Lame Story, Jan 24, 2012. Last week I was interviewed by Jon White on his Debt Free Living podcast about how my wife and I got out of debt and how we live without debt today. I'm pretty modest and I don't think we have a sensational story, but it's still worth sharing since we don't talk about the specifics a whole lot on our show. Plus, it saved me a lot of prep time this week, so I'm taking the easy way out ;o). Sponsor: MozyPro Online...

Episode 92: DIY Project Gone Wrong & Tax Deductions for Charitable Donations, Jan 10, 2012. A few months ago I wrote a post about whether the benefits of hiring a professional outweigh the frustrations of trying to do a project yourself. In that post, I mentioned we had skilled friends who knew what they were doing and had the right tools. In today's show I share a personal DIY project that went wrong. Big time.

Episode 87: Developing an Attitude of Gratitude, Dec 2, 2011. Last week I made a guest appearance on the "Intelligent Investing with Pamela Otten" radio show. Since it was around Thanksgiving time, we talked about having gratitude and being thankful for things. I thought it was a pretty good topic and I was swamped when I came back from traveling over the Thanksgiving weekend, so I figured I would just share the recording of Pam's show. The only trouble was, I ended up procrastinating and I...

Episode 84: You Have the Ability to be in the 1%, Oct. 18, 2011. Today I had hoped to get Reverend Elijah on the show to share the story of his childhood in Uganda.
