Don't think of want to earn more money as being greedy. Think of it as a way to help you help others.

Before I recorded this episode, I’d only met Michelle Jackson from Michelle Is Money Hungry a...

Ever since I connected with Tanja from Our Next Life about a year ago, I was waiting for the opportunity to have her on my show. But for most of the year she was an anonymous blogger. You see, she was waiting to reveal...

I chat with podcast listener Alexis Kienlen about how she empowered herself by ending the mystery banking cycle & teaching herself about money management.
This is why I love when podcast listeners reach out to me to be part of my Listener Series. Because sometimes they end with me saying that it felt like chatting with a friend I hadn’t talked to in a while. My listeners are amazing!

He wasn’t fulfilled in his life or career, so instead of complaining and wishing he had better luck, John Lee Dumas did something about it…which turned into a multi-million dollar a year business now known around the world as Entrepreneurs on Fire.

There’s a new way to get rid of stuff you want to get stuff you need, and I chat with Eli Klein, Manager, Publicity & Partnerships at Bunz all about it.
The first time I heard about Bunz, I thought it was a really intriguing concept. Instead of being a copy of Kijiji or Craigslist where you trade your used goods for money, Bunz was taking it really old-school by being a platform all about trading goods for goods.
The last time I heard about something like this,...
