Peer Pressure and Your Money with Majd Maksad & Live Ask Shannah

Majd Maksad and his company, Status Money, recently completed a study all about peer pressure and the effects it has on your money. If I’m going to be honest, I’ve probably made a money decision or two in the past based on peer pressure. Would it surprise you to know that peer pressure actually can help people save money and change their spending habits?

 This Podcast Episode:

Peer pressure can help consumers cut their spending by a whopping $600 a month, according to a new independent study by the University of Chicago and University of Maryland using technology from statusmoney.com.  With more than half of Americans having less than $1000 in savings and 17% negative net worth, peer pressure could help combat what some experts are calling a debt epidemic.

I wanted to get to the bottom of this and chat with Majd about these findings and how Status Money is helping people with their own money decisions. Many of the key findings were particularly interesting and I think they say a lot about the role peer pressure plays in our finances.

Bringing Your Big Business Dream to Life with Jessica Nazarali + Ask Shannah

Jessica Nazarali always had a big business dream – she knew she wanted to help people and be involved with personal development but wasn’t sure how to execute that. When she started a blog about healthy food in 2011 she quickly realized that her dream could become a reality. She now runs a popular podcast called It Girl Radio and It Girl Academy to help other women realize their business dreams…but she definitely learned some money lessons along the way.

On This Podcast Episode:

Jessica joined me all the way from Austrailia for this episode, and she’s dishing about the realities of running a successful company and online company that earns well over six figures. We tackled some tough questions in this interview including:

  • How do you begin to overcome self-doubt and fear with running your own business
  • How to feel worthy of making money when you run your own business
  • What stumbling blocks in her own money journey that she had to overcome to be successful at helping others
  • Is running an online business and blog still a viable way to make a sustainable income
  • Why she says to, “stop telling your story around money if it’s not helping you”

A 12-Month Plan to Financial Freedom – Getting Invested with Danielle Town + Ask Shannah

I get sent a lot of books to review for the podcast – some great, some just ok. I sat down with Danielle Town’s new book on a Friday afternoon, Invested – How Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger Taught Me to Master My Mind, My Emotions & My Money (with a little help from my dad), and I couldn’t put it down until I read every last word!

On This Podcast Episode:

I’ve had a lot of cool and interesting podcast interviews but this chat with Danielle takes the cake. Her book is all about this 12-month journey that she took with her dad & investing guru, Phil Town, on her journey to financial freedom. The best part, the book details how you and I can follow the exact same process that she went through.

Naturally, I was excited to talk to Danielle about her journey, the struggles, and have her dish any great pearls of wisdom that you should know on your own investing journey. You’ll want to bookmark this podcast episode for sure (and rush out and read her book).

What Nobody Tells You About Your Money

I’ve been fortunate enough to be a guest on a lot of different podcasts lately where I get to share my own money story. Inevitably, I’m always asked, “What is your best money advice.” I love that question because it gives me a chance to talk about those things that seemingly no one talks about when it comes to your money.

On This Podcast Episode:

Working with people over the last 12 years, I’ve seen a lot about how people manage their finances – the good and not-so-good ways. What I have learned, regardless of the income, is there are a lot of things that no one tells you about your money.

In this episode, I’m dishing my top five things that I believe no one really talks about when it comes to money but really should. I think if we did, maybe we might all be able to breathe a sigh of relief.

It’s All About Your Tribe – Millennial Music Chat With SHAED + Ask Shannah

News out of Washington D.C. is not the cheeriest these days almost midway through 2018, so it’s refreshing when electronic-pop trio SHAED (pronounced “shade”) has become a ray of sunlight on the nation’s capital evolving music scene – a badge of honor this young band wears proudly. Following in the footsteps paved by other notable D.C. area legends as Bad Brains, Fugazi and hall of famer Marvin Gaye, SHAED has their sights on a breakout year with an upcoming national tour and stellar new EP due out later this summer.

 

On This Podcast Episode:

SHAED is somewhat of a family affair, with twin-brothers Spencer and Max Ernst on the music side and Chelsea Lee bringing the vocals. Spencer and Chelsea are even engaged, and all three recently moved into a home together, where the band housemates were inspired to write and record their latest collection of songs. Not only a band, but the three are also close friends, jamming Frank Sinatra and old-school jazz as they cook dinner every night. Even so, this trio cuts a broad swath of musical talent weaving delicate, hypnotic pop-synths with grandiose lyrics and seductively powerful vocals. SHAED is a band to watch out for in the coming years.

We caught up with SHAED as they just completed their last rehearsal before hitting the road for a string of dates with X Ambassadors. The trio had a lot to chat about, from the impact a fantasy novel had on the band, to the thunder of Bernie Sanders and writing songs at an empty Air B&B in Death Valley.

My co-host for the podcast is my husband, Jeff Game, a travel, and music journalist that’s always on the hunt for a good story to tell.

From Financial Disadvantage to Being Empowered with Warren Hogarth + Ask Shannah

You’d think when you arrive in the U.S. getting set up financially would be easy. Not so fast. When Warren Hogarth of Empower came to the U.S. from Austrailia in 2004 he quickly realized he was at a disadvantage with all things financial – getting credit and building your credit was no easy task.

On This Podcast Episode:

I had a candid conversation with Warren about his transition to the U.S. and how “the system” attempted to keep him down when it came to his finances. Luckily, he’s sharing some of the money lessons he learned during that time as well as the journey he’s taken to turn the disadvantages into a new app,  Empower.

Warren spent eight years as a Partner at the #1 VC firm in the world, Sequoia Capital. They’ve invested in companies like Square, LinkedIn, WhatsApp, and AirBnB, and Warren stood shoulder-to-shoulder with founders to build large, enduring businesses (3 went from zero to over $1 billion).

If you take away one thing for this episode, it should be his best piece of money advice (stay to the end of the episode to hear his inspirational take away).

Shout Out To Our Sponsor:

This episode was sponsored by The Decrypting Crypto Podcast. As Warren said in the podcast episode, learning all you can about Crypto will keep you educated and in a position to make smart money moves.
