Description

Investing advice is the number one reason why people hire financial advisors, and we're here to tell you that you're wasting your money!!! Certainly a financial advisors could help you with other things like financial goal setting and managing cash flow, but ultimately it still comes down to you doing the hard work yourself (plus, we've already covered those topics on previous episodes, have a listen)! The biggest reasons why you don't need a financial advisor is because financial advisors can be really expensive, and plus, they don't always point you in the right direction! Listen to the entire episode to find out why don't recommend financial advisors.

So there you go- you DON'T need a financial advisor. Instead, you need to be investing in well diversified, low-cost index funds like our favorites, VTSAX and VOO. That's what Warren Buffett recommends and he was willing to prove it by making a 10 year bet against hedge fund managers (as if being the 3rd richest man in the world wasn't enough proof).

And at the beginning of this episode we each popped open a bottle of Allagash's Curieux, which you can find and learn all about on Untappd. A huge thanks to Allagash Brewing Company for donating this amazing beer and supporting the podcast!

Personal Mission Statements with $Pro Scott Rieckens #054
***We are pumped to start releasing an additional episode every week that we’re calling our money pro episode, or $Pro for short! Every Monday we’ll hear from a $Pro as they discuss a topic that they’re passionate and knowledgeable about, and then we unpack it even further and discuss the impact that topic has on our financial lives.***Too often in life it’s like we’re sleepwalking- as if we’re drifting through life without any clear guiding principles. Due to that, our day-to-day is filled with different people, companies/advertising, and events having more sway over our lives and money than we do. Scott Rieckens is here to change that with his approach to creating a personal mission statement and to remind us to proactively take control and start directing our own future! This is a topic that is near and dear to his heart. After realizing that his growing family was in a state of overconsumption, he and his wife re-assessed their family’s priorities which then led them to cancel their boat club membership, sell their BMW, and move away from pricey Coronado, CA. They didn’t have to do any of this, but they chose to do all of this after creating a personal mission statement! Listen as we break it down and go through how you can create your own mission statement- plus we share our personal mission statements as well.During this episode we enjoyed a Cold Mountain by Highland Brewing which you can find and learn all about on Untappd. A big thanks to our friends Clark and Nanci in Asheville for donating this delicious beer!
