In this episode of the Money Talks News podcast, we’re talking about how organizing your money can make you richer and how to get there with the least possible pain.

This will probably come as no surprise, but according to a recent survey, only 23% of Americans have a formal financial plan. And you can probably guess why: 76% of those without a plan say they feel overwhelmed by the thought of creating one, and 56% say life is too uncertain for a plan to have any value.

That’s a bummer because having a plan for your money can lead directly to having more money. And as we like to say around here, more money is better.

That’s why this week’s guest is going to help us get our money ducks in a row.

Host Stacy Johnson is joined by financial journalist Miranda Marquit. Listening in and sometimes contributing is producer Aaron Freeman. Our special guest today is Alissa Maizes, the founder of Amplify My Wealth, a registered investment adviser.

Remember, this isn’t financial advice. So make sure to do your own research and consult your own experts before acting on anything you learn here.
