Traveling with Purpose on the Cheap #007

February 21, 2018

Traveling and going on vacation doesn't have to break the bank. In this episode we spend most of our time talking through some tips that will help you save money the next time you book some travel. But first, we want you to think about the aspects of travel that you enjoy the most, and then center your trip around that (like breweries and the outdoors- a couple of our favorites!). March to your own drum! Don't give in to the pressures of taking the touristy route or doing the activities that you have no interest in. It might seem like an obvious point to make, but this is the crucial first step before you even begin to plan your trip. You be you!Once you've covered the 'why am I doing this?' question, it's time to start saving money! Here are the practical tips we have for traveling:Consider staying in the United StatesBe flexible with your dates AND your destination. Huge cost savings here.Go with friends to cut down on costsMake sure to have a credit card with no foreign transaction feePlus a bunch of other awesome stuff- be sure to listen for the rest!And at the beginning of this episode we cracked open a double IPA- Hopslam by Bell's Brewery which you can find and learn all about on Untappd.

Retirement Investing is Simpler than You Think #009

March 07, 2018

Investing for your retirement is way simpler and easier than you think- and I'm going to prove it. Do these 2 things and you'll be a millionaire by the time you retire (I'm not even exaggerating one bit!):1. Open your retirement accounts:401k – If your employer offers a retirement plan like a 401k, especially with a match, start contributing immediately!!! Since a ton of employers offer a 50% match, you won't be able to find a better return on your investment anywhere. At the very least contribute up to your employer match, or you can really get after it and fully fund it at $18,500.IRA – Next thing to consider is opening an IRA (individual retirement account), specifically a ROTH IRA given the recent changes in tax law. This is not an employer offered retirement plan, so anyone can open one of these accounts. It's as easy as opening a savings account online, no joke. The only downside to the IRA is that your contributions are limited at $5,500 per year (but don't forget you can open a spousal IRA too, so $11,000 combined!). We highly recommend Vanguard.2. Start investing:Take Warren Buffett's timeless advice and only buy funds or etfs that are widely diversified and have low expense ratios (like around .05%).Joel is 100% invested in VTSAX and I'm 100% invested in VOO. Again we are both big fans of Vanguard but both Fidelity and Schwab have some good low-cost funds as well.Keep investing and don't stop. That's it!And at the beginning of this episode we cracked open a couple local brews by Ironmonger Brewing Company- Damascus IPA and Anvil DIPA which you can find and learn all about on Untappd.

There is so much more to handling your finances and investing well, than just knowing the correct information.
