I want to share expert insights and answers to the most common money management questions that you’ve always wondered about. Don’t miss this episode as I guide you towards a prosperous future.
I have some extremely helpful worksheets that will help you with the aspect of ADULTING in my upcoming book.
Where can you get these worksheets? I am so glad you asked. Head on over to darlabishop.com and order my book, How to Afford Everything.
It is chock full of all of the ideas we discuss in this podcast series, plus mind-blowing worksheets that will turn you into a Bankroll boss in no time.
Topic #1: Should You Rent or Buy Your Housing?
The number one question I discuss with people is whether to pay rent for housing or buy your own house. This is a HUGE decision and it is something that can, AND WILL, affect your finances now and in the future.
Listen as I explain the differences that renting or buying can have on your current finances and financial goals. It is not always advantageous to buy.
Topic #2: Should You Lease or Buy a Car
Another question I get asked frequently is, “Should I Lease or Buy a Car?”
Most people want to drive their whips in style without breaking the bank. Affording a car is a big consideration, but whether you buy or lease won’t have a life-changing impact on your finances like the housing debate will. The cost difference is minimal.
Listen as I discuss the different financial strategies of buying a car. If you are someone who has dealt with a lot of car problems, this section is for you.
Topic #3: Is it the right time to go/go back to school?
Next life-altering decision: How do know if it is the right time to go to college or go back to college?
As with most big important adulting decisions, this can also be a major financial decision. It’s important to know if you can afford it, what returns you might get for your investment, and how you can make the most out of your education.
What are the key factors you need to consider when deciding if it is a good time for you to go back to school financially?
How will furthering your education impact your earning potential and career prospects?
Listen to the story about how I got over $17K for school by asking one simple question. You can too!
