Radical Personal Finance: Financial Independence, Early Retirement, Investing, Insurance, Financial Planning

I love to talk with people who have achieved financial independence. But I especially love to talk to those financially independent people who have achieved it in a very accessible way!

Frankly, it's hard to relate to a tech titan who sells their latest greatest app company for a billion dollars.

But I can relate to someone who has simply worked hard, saved aggressively, invested conservatively, built an entrepreneurial side hustle and achieved their results over time!

My guest today is Scott Alan Turner and he's done exactly that. Sit back, relax, and enjoy his story! And make sure to take special note of how you can copy and model him and  his success.

Enjoy!

244-Vending Machines as a Path to Wealth and Passive Income: Interview with Matt Miller from School Spirit Vending

When I was younger my brothers and I spent lots of time talking about how to make our millions of dollars with passive income. Two businesses seem to be prominent when you go down that line of thinking as a young person: car washes and vending machines.

We didn't pursue either of those businesses. But much later I did wind up working with some clients who had a vending business. And I was intrigued by their business.

My guest today is a vending expert. Matt Miller started his vending business the hard way and built it slowly.

Over time, he wound up finding a new niche for his vending products: stickers.

He's since gone on to create a franchise to teach others how to do what he has done.

Enjoy his wisdom, experience, and insight!

Interpersonal skills of relationship are a huge deal and your mastery of them will massively impact your level of success in life.

All else being equal, people would rather do business with people they know, like, and trust.

All else NOT being equal, people would STILL rather do business with people they know, like, and trust!

So, this is an area that we should give attention to.

My guest today has devoted years to studying, mastering, and teaching interpersonal skills.

Jordan Harbinger is the co-founder of the highly successful Art of Charm. I caught up with him at Podcast Movement 2015 and invited him on the show to share some lessons with us.

He delivered.

Enjoy the interview!

Money in marriage is an extremely challenging area of life. Researchers often say that money fights and money problems is the number one cause of marital stress.

I was able to catch up with him at Podcast Movement 2015 where we dug into the major questions of how to handle money together.

It might seem like the only way to make money in today's world is to create and sell a digital product. It's not. Frankly, the physical product world is probably much less crowded than the digital world!

My guest today is Andreea Ayers. She is awesome.

She created a business that made and sold yoga-themed tshirts. Then, she created a business that sold soaps.

Now, she's taken her success and experience with her own brands and turned it into a consulting business where she helps others to duplicate her success.

It's a super fun interview.

Enjoy!

I love to bring financial advisors onto Radical Personal Finance in order to break down the barriers of communication between advisors and the general public.

Katie Brewer is a financial planner based in Texas. She specializes in working with Gen X and Gen Y clients.

I invited her onto the show to dig into what's different about planning for Gen X and Gen Y clients as compared to the general public.

Also, I grilled her on the reality of what it's like to actually build a financial planning practice from scratch.

Enjoy!
