happy birthday couz..from your Cdn cousins!
Hi Whitney Hansen & everyone else. I listen to your pod cast on the 12 week program, I'm in the process of doing that for my 3 credit cards I have. I just paid off off a piece of furniture I just bought $1425 ( paid it off before the interest kick in with 2 month to spare) but anywho back to my pain question. Should I just focus on 1 or 2 credit cards to get them paid off quick or stay with the budge I have to have all 3 paid off in 12 weeks? Then take the extra pays & focus all that on to my truck payment? I'm already contributing 10% to my 401K & working on building up my emergency fund. Thank yall in advance 💜

Listened to today's info on eliminating debt. It was great. It was inspiring because it was very truthful. Thank you
Hey everyone!! Getting some advice on long term disability insurance. I have long term disability that covers $1300/month for 5 years for $45/month. They did exclude lower back problems because I mentioned that I go to the chiropractor. I was thinking about cancelling it because I'm really wanting to focus on my debt. my agent is really saying I shouldn't because the price could go up even in the next year and this price is locked in until I'm 65. What do you all think? I'm an independent consultant, I don't have options through employer.
Thank you for mentioning the Losing 100 pounds podcast. I really have enjoyed what I have heard so far. I have just started but the part that resonates is small changes that become a lifestyle. It fascinates me that getting out of debt and losing weight have so many relatable parts. Just one small change can make such a difference. I have some kind of aversion to doing a budget, but you had mentioned that keeping a spending log (like a food log) can really help. Mind blown! You are so right, I can't tell you how much this advice helped me. Thank you! So glad I found you and your podcast!
Hey Whitney! I just found you through a pin on Pinterest! I'm looking forward to seeing your posts!
Thank you for putting together the money summit! All the speakers were incredible and the information shared was so valuable! I feel like I have a new direction and spice for where I am going from here! :)
So I currently live in Japan, and I stayed up all night to make sure I can watch these videos live (they air from 2am to 4am) because it's Just That Good.

Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of The Money Summit. See you tomorrow! (Time to get some sleep.)
Love your videos. Learned alot. I got my finances in order for now! ;0) Thank you.

Seeing lots of articles saying to sell stocks, sell your real estate and hunker down for a crash.

I’ll be the first one to say, I have no idea if that will happen (no one can predict a market).

But as a long-term investor, I’m not selling a single stock. 🙅🏼‍♀️ I’m continuing to invest the same amount I did before.

Don’t let sensationalized stories make financial decisions for you. Trust the process and invest for the long run.

Waimea Canyon is full of picturesque places and has so much to do/see!

🌴Fun fact: this soil is full of so much iron here they have “dirt shirts” that are dyed naturally.

Wishing I brought a white tee to dye. 😆

Sun kissed (burnt) + finding sand in places it should never be. 😅

This is my third trip to Kauai and each time has been so different.

What’s your favorite beach activity?
A) Lounging with a book
B) Snorkeling and water sports
C) Catching sunsets

This is such an important topic for business owners. Listen in if you’ve struggled with boundaries in your life. 💕

Whitney Hansen, the host of the award-winning podcast, The Money Nerds Whitney Hansen had a detailed conversation with our host, Sarah Li Cain to discuss the importance of setting boundaries around her business, and how having boundaries keeps you from creating identities solely around the business.

My happy place. 😍

In the mountains, building stuff, and turning a vision in our head into reality.

Super happy with our walkway progress at my @airbnb project/experiment setting up @cascadedome glamping site in Idaho.

Snuck away for a quick overnighter at this lookout tower at 8200’.

The stars, sunset and sunrise were amazing.😍

It’s fall time in the mountains. 🍂

Such an important reminder.

If you find yourself spending money as fast as you get it, this can be a huge underlying scarcity mindset.

Scarcity mindset isn’t always hoarding money, a lot of times it’s the exact opposite and spending every dime you have the minute you get it.

I ask all of my 1:1 coaching clients what their 3 core values are.

This is SO important!

When you know what’s most important to you, you can make better financial decisions.

Here’s how this looks in practice.

My core values are:
🍎HEALTH
✈️ADVENTURE
💰FINANCIAL SECURITY

Anytime I make a financial decisions- I ask if it is aligned with my core values.

At this stage, anything that costs financial security isn’t worth it to me.

When you start to create a financial plan that encompasses what’s important to you, money starts to feel fun!

What are your 3 core values?

In a world where we are so focused on outer appearance, it’s hard to remember that *everyone* struggles with money sometimes.

You just never see it discussed publicly.

Money shame is a really detrimental thing to your:
✖️Relationships
✖️Mental health

Start by normalizing the struggle.

Tell those around you when you’re going through a tough time—they likely have/are going through similar things.

You’re not alone.

Everything comes down to habits.

Learning about the habit loop legit transformed my finances in a lot of ways.

If you’re thinking “what the heck is the habit loop?” Listen to the latest episode on The Money Nerds podcast.

It’s the BOMB!

This just in, student loan payment pause is being extended through January 31, 2022.

What does this mean?

1) if you’re struggling to make ends meet, you get a bit more grace to find employment.

2) if you can afford the payments, now is the time to make as much progress towards paying off your student loans that you can. Your money will go a lot further.

It’s my birthday!!🎉🎉

33 years young. 😆 A couple years ago I started setting birthday goals.

This year my birthday goal is 33 hikes.

So I’m spending most of this afternoon planning out my adventures so that I have all my hikes in order. (With a big cup of ☕️)

Do you set birthday goals? If so— what are you working towards?

Once upon a time, when I was just 17, I bought a car.

It was a convertible and super cute. I financed it.

The car had a couple questionable things like a knocking sound, but the dealer assured us it was allll good.

Like an idiot, I believed him.

Fast forward 2 months later, my car engine blew. Turns out that knocking sound was a rod.

I was stuck paying $120 per month for a car I couldn’t drive AND trying to save $1,200+ for a new motor.

This is one of the many reasons I’m anti car payment (most are because too many people sign up for $25k debt without even having a $25k net worth). And we all know cars are a depreciating asset.

For me- car payments cost me too much of my peace of mind.

Looking for a good financial book? 📚

I have been loving this one!

Some of my favorite takeaways are:

✖️Earning wealth and KEEPING wealth are totally different beasts.

✖️Respect luck. It plays a huge role in our financial successes.

✖️Margin of safety- factoring in the cost of losing is critical to building wealth (those that don’t usually lose big time).

✖️ It’s hard to calculate the ROI on emergency funds that allow you peace of mind, and the ability to walk away from a job you don’t like.

✖️ Most people’s happiness comes from feeling in control over our time. We sometimes leave great jobs with fulfilling work if we don’t feel in control of the way our time is spent.

I’m about 80% done with this book so I’ll be sure to share any additional takeaways. 📚🐛

One of my biggest peeves is when people say “I don’t have money to invest” yet always find money to eat out.

(PS. I speak from lots of personal experience here!😂)

Money comes with opportunity costs.

We all have choices.

By making room for investing in your finances you are buying yourself a better future and more opportunities.

Buying into the opinions of other people is something we alllll struggle with from time to time.

Here are a few tips to help you beat comparison syndrome:

✨Remind yourself that most people are deeply in debt and chasing happiness through stuff.

✨Unsubscribe from emails that tempt you to spend money.

✨Limit time on social media.

✨Get a group of friends that cares about sh*t that actually matters outside of material items.

I was reading an article on BecomingMinimalist.com and had a few “GTFO” moments.

Some of these stats are insane:

✖️The average American family spends $1,700 on clothes annually
✖️While the average American throws away 65 pounds of clothing per year
✖️Nearly half of American households don’t save any money
✖️ There are 300,000 items in the average American home

My favorite quote from this article is:

“We own too much stuff. And it’s robbing us of life.”

I personally am a snowball kinda girl.

Just remember- you already have a debt free date on the calendar.

Paying extra just speeds up that date.💰

Ah, Prime Day.🙃

I love a great deal as much as the next person, BUT if you’re buying something because it’s on sale and you’re saving money you aren’t actually saving money.

**The only exception to this is items you were already going to buy and already have budgeted for.**

Too often I see people focus all of their energy on cutting expenses.

Don’t get me wrong, as a financial coach, I see waaaaaay too many people blowing money and living beyond their means.

But you can only cut so much.

Eventually, you’ve got to prioritize making more (while keeping your lifestyle minimal).

That’s one of the biggest reasons I started furniture flipping. To show people how much you can actually make. I just ended up enjoying it so much I still do it today. 🤣

So here’s a mindset exercise you can implement today-

🧠Instead of saying “I can’t afford it” ask yourself “how can I afford it?”
