Crowdfunding Your Dreams

This week on Millennial Money Lifestyle Thursday we talk about the good and the bad of crowdfunding. Whether you want to start a business, make a movie, or even record an album, crowdfunding has become one of the best ways to raise funds for a dream project, as long you have something people want to buy.

We spoke with two singer-songwriters who both have a unique way of crowdfunding their next big project, as well as finding ways of better connecting with their fans.

Tatiana Moroz  is a singer-songwriter and Bitcoin pioneer who is raising funds to create her own line of currency with her Tatiana coin, so her fans can more direct access to her latest projects, such as her upcoming tour and new album.

This young singer is looking to change the Bitcoin world with her new currency, all the while building a stronger community with her swelling fanbase.

 Austin Lucas wants to get up personal with his fans, as he launches his “House By House” tour, launching March 10th, giving fans an intimate show by this talented singer-songwriter. When fans buy a ticket to this upcoming tour, they have access to one of these exclusive shows, as well getting a digital copy of his latest album, “Immortal Americans.”

With so many artists these days seemingly becoming more distance between them and the audience through such avenues as social media, Austin Lucas is creating a live international social engagement with his fans.

The Health and Wealth Connection – Jean Chatzky

We're chatting with Today Show financial expert, Jean Chatzky, about her new book age-proof, living longer without running out of money or breaking a hip.

“What’s a secret to wealth that other people might not know about?” That’s the single most asked question that I get asked. While there aren’t too many “secrets” to wealth other than knowing your numbers, saving money and living within your means, one of the most overlooked secrets to wealth is your health.

Think about it this way – you can have all the money in the world, but if you were to get sick tomorrow and money couldn’t heal you, you’d be missing out on enjoying your riches. Just because you’re young doesn’t mean you’re immune to health issues that could become a serious drag on your finances.

There really is a powerful connection between health and wealth, and Jean Chatzky’s new book, AgeProof, is chalked full of great tips for managing both.

On This Podcast Episode:

We’re chatting with Jean Chatzky, an award-winning financial journalist, author, and motivational speaker. She is the TODAY Show’s financial expert, and has appeared on The View, Live!, Morning Joe, The Talk and  Oprah among others. Her most recent book, AgeProof: Living Longer Without Running Out of Money or Breaking a Hip was written with the Cleveland Clinic’s chief wellness officer Dr. Michael Roizen to explain the vital connection between health and wealth — giving readers all the tactics, strategies, and know-how to live longer, healthier, more lucrative lives.

How to Invest in Startups – Newchip

Investing in startups isn't only reserved for the experts on Shark Tank - with Newchip you can now invest in startups with as little as $100 a month.

Investing in Startups is Easy

Investing in startups used to be reserved for the experts on Shark Tank, and big business people who have lots of funds behind them. I don’t know about you, but there are a ton of deals that I see on that show and think, “Hey, I’d like to invest in that company.”

Now you can – meet Newchip.

 Newchip‘s Millennial CEO, Ryan Rafols and co-founder and CTO Travis Brodeen wants 2017 to be the year investing is forever changed by helping new investors own a piece of startups they believe in and are passionate about. He created Newchip to as a way to make wealth and investing more accessible to the masses, while also specifically targeting people his own age – millennials.

Newchip is a marketplace that will feature hundreds of private equity investment opportunities from other platforms that only offer a few dozen at most. It will also be open to non-accredited investors and provide “crowdfinancing,” which is a credit system where people can invest $1,000 in a company while only paying around a $100 a month over 12 months.

Millennials are the driving force of change – which is causing shakeups in how many businesses and industries normally “do business”. When it comes to investing, millennials are taking a different path than the generations before them, and it’s anticipated that this cause-centric generation will increase the demand for social responsibility investing – SRI – as they indicate less interest in traditional equity investments.

Check out Newchip for a new way to approach investing. Download the app in the app store and start referring some friends for a referral bonus.

Why Women Need to Save More…A Lot More

Women get the short end of the stick when it comes to saving for retirement. Simply put, women need to save more…a lot more than men and the trend is that women actually end up saving less instead. According to a recent NerdWallet data analysis, the average American woman must save $1.25 for ever $1 a man invests in retirement savings to build an equivalent nest egg.

That’s not good news! (But we can fix it)

Women earn less than men in most careers and that can have a serious impact on our lifestyle in retirement. Here are some tips to boost your savings now to catch up.

There are so many reasons why this is happening, but at the end of the day it just means we all have to be super saving at knowing our numbers and finding ways to save, invest, and grow our money regardless of sex and the ridiculous pay gap.
