When you think about buying something — a plain ol’ shirt, for example — what’s your thought process? How do you decide what shirt to buy? Maybe you think, “I don’t want to spend over $20 on this shirt.” Or, “I need it fast, so I need to buy it online from a store that offers free two-day shipping.” How often are you thinking, “I need a shirt that’…
 
Sir John Templeton, an American-born British investor, banker, fund manager, and philanthropist, said this on investing: “Bull markets are born on pessimism, grown on skepticism, mature on optimism, and die on euphoria.” He was named “the greatest global stock picker of the century” by Money in the 1990s, so we’re inclined to listen to his advice. …
 
We often think of “money” as a stack of bills with a bunch of dead presidents on them, right? That’s money as a concept. But when was the last time you carried cash on you? If you don’t see it or touch it, does it actually exist? Yes. And no. Maybe? Dustin and Joseph do a deep dive into the concept of money in our latest episode. They also cover ho…
 
We’ll keep the intrigue to a minimum. In our opinion, the answer to this question is a resounding yes. Whether you’ve just gotten married (congrats!) or you’re in a committed, long-term relationship, it may be a good idea to have a joint account with your partner. Sharing your finances with your partner builds trust. Keeping them separate can breed…
 
The coronavirus pandemic, as well as recent protests against racial injustice, have highlighted a few underlying problems in our society that have been unknown by many and ignored by most. One of them is the income equality in America: the staggering wealth that a very small percentage of the population owns. As you’ve probably heard, about 1% of t…
 
In March of 2020, we saw the stock market tumble 30% in one month. In the following few months, we’ve gained most of that back. What is happening?? In this minisode (seriously, it’s less than three minutes!), Dustin recaps what a stock actually is — in case you’ve forgotten amidst all the panicked COVID-19 stock market talk — and how stocks are bou…

We talk about fear a lot on our podcast. Fear is natural and, TBH, necessary. But when it comes to finances, three types of fear tends to hold us back: from investing, from charging clients what we’re worth, or from taking chances when building a business. Fear can also make you focus on the wrong thing when it comes to your net worth. Paying down …
 
The robots have taken over. Just kidding. In reality, robots haven’t taken over — but they have taken over a major chunk of the financial industry in the form of robo-advisors. A lot of people assume that we’re going to bash on robo-advisors (“The robots are taking your jobs!”) or that we will tell them a human advisor is the only way to go. But th…
 
Let’s address the elephant in the room first: what does the phrase “stock market” mean to you? Fear! Panic! Crash! We get it. But we’re here to tell you… the stock market ain’t that bad! There are a lot of misconceptions about investing in the stock market, thanks to fear-mongering in the news, horror stories from family and friends, and a lack of …
 
No one uses an actual punch clock at their job anymore, right? However, the concept of a punch clock — punching in to start a shift and punching out when it ends — is ingrained in many of us, even as business owners who write our own checks and make our own schedules. But it doesn’t have to stay that way! On this episode of Wealth By Design, we tal…
 
How has your life changed in 2020? We’re not talking about how you’re learning how to bake bread, choosing Zoom backgrounds for your virtual meetings, or watching way too much Netflix.

How many times have you heard “Save for an emergency!” and “Save for retirement!” We’re not saying those aren’t super important things to save for… but what about the rest of your life? Things like buying a house some day, or having kids. Taking that 6-month sabbatical. Buying out your business partner. Starting another business. You don’t just hav…
 
Where do you get your financial advice? (Aside from us and the Wealth by Design podcast, of course. 😉) Your friends? Parents? Coworkers?

But we have a little bi…

Do you know your numbers? We’re not talking about your numbers like how much you have in your checking account, or age and weight (which we shouldn’t be asking about anyway!). By “numbers,” we mean the three numbers that can help you ride out this COVID-19 crisis… or any big unexpected life change that comes your way. We’re talking about: How much …

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN [01:55] What dollar-cost averaging means [0…
 
Thanks to the continuing COVID-19 crisis, you’re probably hearing “the D-word” thrown around a lot.
