Description

Purchasing a home is always a good idea... right?! And renting is a huge waste of money- or at least that's what you've heard. In this episode we address these two huge assumptions and cover the benefits of renting and buying a home. There are a lot of things to consider like geographic mobility, financial flexibility, housing stability, and creative freedom! Listen to the full episode to hear why either renting or buying a home might be a good idea for you.

A quick tip for now though: make sure that your rent or mortgage payment is no more than 25% of your monthly take-home pay. You don't want to be house poor!

And at the beginning of this episode we each cracked open a couple of Juice Bar Pale Ales by Wrecking Bar, which you can find and learn all about on Untappd. If you enjoyed this episode, be sure to subscribe and review us in Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts!

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!
