Today we cover the three basic methods to save money:

  1. Buy it cheaper
  2. Make it last longer
  3. Use it less

Any one of these strategies is useful. But the real power comes when you implement all three of them.

Listen to the show to understand why!

I recently gave an interview to the Complete Privacy and Security Podcast on the topic of financial privacy. I think it was a really good interview.

This interview was originally published on December 8, 2017 here: https://operational-security.com/cps-podcast-e058-financial-privacy-security/

Today, I'd like to interrupt the personal finance content with a show on podcasting. After recording over 500 episodes of Radical Personal Finance, I feel like I have some valuable lessons to share with other podcasters and with my listeners who are considering starting a podcast.

Enjoy,

I really hate it when I see people bullied. And I especially hate to see debtors bullied by unethical debt collectors.

In today's show I share with you some tools, tactics, and techniques and knowledge to help you stand up for yourself in the face of an onslaught of bill collectors.

I hope these help you.

And, if you don't need this type of help, I hope these ideas help you to help someone else who does.
