What You May Not Know About Money Taboos That Might Be Sabotaging Your Growth

We all know that money taboos exist except we don’t really talk about them. In fact, we don’t really talk about anything in relation to money unless we absolutely have to. Have you ever stopped to think why this is? In the U.S., we have a terrible reputation of not making enough strides when it comes to financial literacy – which in turn enables money taboos to go right on existing.

We need to talk though. We need to understand our money taboos and what role they play in our financial success and then we need to teach others how to do the same.

What You’ll Learn

  • To start, I’m going back and sorting through some financial literacy history in the U.S. to make a case for why money taboos exist
  • Who is to blame – teachers, parents, government, etc? What do you think
  • What happens if we let money taboos continue to grow without putting out the flames
  • Steps you can take to break free from any money taboos holding you back
  • Why our closest relationships are the place we need to start with when it comes to talking about money
  • Discussion about the states mandating financial literacy, and why there are only 5

I Need Help with My Investing Strategy + Other Burning Investing Questions With Doug Boneparth

I don’t think you can ever learn too much about investing and growing your wealth. While investing can seem super complicated, the good news is that there are a lot of resources these days to help you out (like this podcast). One of them is my good friend and fellow CFP®, Doug Boneparth. Doug’s joined us on the podcast a few times in the past, and he’s back again to help me answer some of your #AskShannah investing questions.

Whether you’re new to investing or a seasoned pro, you’ll enjoy this episode with an inside look into three of your investing questions from two CFP®’s who share a love of simplifying money concepts into fun bite-sized pieces you can easily digest!

Questions Asked

  • Active vs. Passive Investing: Is active investing becoming more favorable with volatile markets?
  • Are cannabis stocks the next great thing or just a fad in your opinion and what do I need to know?
  • Should I be investing as much as I can in my 401(k) or should I look at an IRA or a ROTH? I know you always say it depends on our own situation and goals – what would be an advantage or investing more in my 401(k) above the match?

What You’ll Learn

  • How to match your investing strategy with your lifestyle goals
  • What is active vs. passive investing anyway
  • Why you should never think of stocks as “the next best thing”
  • Why your 401(k) is so powerful for your retirement savings
