The Art of Asking for a Discount #018

Update: 2018-05-09


Asking for a discount isn't something that most people enjoy doing, but we'd be willing to wager that you don't ask for discounts enough. It's your money after all- hang onto it! In this episode we discuss haggling, rejection, and some reasons why asking for a discount should be a healthy part of your financial life. We also go through some practical steps we take when asking for a discount and share a few stories of when we've gotten that sweet discount or when we've had to say 'thanks for considering!' and walk.

It's an overused maxim, but that doesn't make it any less true: If you never ask for a discount, the answer will always be no.

At the beginning of this episode we cracked open a couple beers that Joel brought back from Paris- we are so incredibly cultured y'all! Specifically we were a fan of the Blanc by Gallia Paris, which you can learn about on their website but good luck since it's in French!

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!
