Most of what I’ve learned about money I didn’t learn in books, or by being a CPA, investment adviser or financial reporter. I learned it the hard way: by making bad decisions and missing major opportunities.
Of course, everybody screws up. But one silver lining in an otherwise dark cloud is that by sharing our experiences, maybe we can help others avoid a similar fate.
That’s what this week’s podcast is about. Fellow podcaster Miranda Marquit and I are going to confront the boneheaded things we’ve done with money, what we should have done instead and what you and yours should do if you find yourself in similar circumstances.
Sit back, relax and listen to this week’s “Money” podcast!

A podcast is basically a radio show you can listen to anytime, either by downloading it to your smartphone or other device, or by listening online.
They’re totally free. They can be any length (ours are typically just under a half-hour), feature any number of people and cover any topic you can possibly think of. You can listen at home, in the car, while jogging or, if you’re like me, when riding your bike.
If you haven’t listened to a podcast yet, give it a try, then subscribe to ours. You’ll be glad you did!
