Have you ever heard the expression “you are what you eat?” Well, the same applies to what you listen to. Has there ever been a time when a love song came on the radio and by the end of it you were feeling nostalgic? Or, an upbeat throwback plays and instantly changes your bad mood into a better one? That’s because what you listen to has a major effect on you! So, if you’re grow your money then why not listen to things that will feed that desire?
Podcasts have become the new YouTube. You can listen to them virtually any time and any place. The best part is there are tons of tailor-made podcasts where you can learn about specific careers, lifestyle choices, and finances. I’ve done some digging and found four great financial podcasts that will educate you and make you feel like a financial boss!
1) You Need A Budget
This is an app and podcast that, according to the creator Jesse Mecham, gives you a weekly dose of just the right medicine to help you get out of debt, save more money, and beat the paycheck to paycheck cycle. The videos are relatively short between four and 20 minutes. I also like Jesse’s relatability and cool demeanor making it an easy listen. And, the app is free for students!
2) Money Girl
Length is relative, but this podcast is a bit on the lengthy side for those with a short attention span. Episodes run between 18 to 30 minutes in length. The information that’s given is worth a listen though. There are complicated topics like taxes, credit scores, and investing that are broken down into easily digestible nuggets.
3) We Study Billionaires | The Investor Podcast
So many people talk about wanting to become a billionaire, but how many people are actually studying billionaires? This podcast has one-on-one interviews with some of today’s hottest billionaires like Mark Cuban. The coolest thing is just to listen to their conversations and research some of the things they discuss. Its super eye opening and motivating. Some of the stories these billionaires tell might surprise you.
I challenge you to listen to at least one of these podcasts and expand your financial knowledge. If you have any podcast suggestions leave a comment and don’t forget to follow me on social at @YoungFreeMI.
