Simple Tips to Radically Improve Your Financial Life

·3 mins read

Stuck at home with some time on your hands? It’s totally fine to sit back, relax or maybe play video games or watch Netflix. But if you’d like to do something a bit more productive, you’ll like this week’s podcast. It’s all about simple things you can do to improve your financial life.

Not to worry: While these ideas will help you make more, spend less and generally get more organized, most are simple enough to do during commercial breaks, or whenever you’ve got a few spare minutes.

As usual, in this week’s podcast, I share the stage with longtime financial journalist and fellow podcaster Miranda Marquit. Give it a listen.

Not familiar with podcasts? Read this

I’ve been experimenting with podcasts for a few months now, but in light of recent events, it’s become part of my weekly routine. It should be part of yours as well.

If you’re not familiar with podcasts, no sweat. They’re simple to use and a great way to learn new things.

A podcast is just a radio show you can download and listen to anytime. They’re totally free. They can be any length, 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.

You can listen to our podcasts here or download them to your phone from any number of places, including Apple, Spotify, RadioPublic, Stitcher and RSS.

If you haven’t listened to a podcast yet, give it a try, then subscribe. You’ll be glad you did!
