It's our 250th episode!
To commemorate this milestone, I decided to invite my parents, Cindy and Butch Hill, on the podcast.
We discuss the childhood lessons that shaped their lives and how our family came to be.
I hope these conversations encourage you to connect with your parents, learn more about your history and see how you can strengthen your family tree for years to come.
Employers are implementing their "return to work" strategies and employees are bracing for the change.
Nicole and I discuss how this change will affect her work-life and the pros and cons of working from home.
What are your thoughts on the return to work news?
Ever wonder what it takes to become a millionaire?
Clark Sheffield and Jace Mattinson, from the Millionaires Unveiled Podcast, have interviewed over 200 millionaires. Today, they are sharing the habits, investment strategies, and commonalities of these successful individuals.
We also review and dispel some millionaire myths along the way.

In the last year, we spent $75,000 of our savings on cars, trips, house upgrades, and much more. Now, there's no money left!
After this spending spree (including what we received from the Stimulus Checks), will we be able to enjoy our lives without expecting more?
Nicole and I explore this lifestyle inflation conundrum and discuss how others may be feeling this way coming out of the pandemic.
Wondering if you should invest in cryptocurrency?
After receiving a question on the topic, I decided to dive into the world of crypto and learn more about it.
As a part of my education, I asked 13 of my friends and colleagues in the personal finance community to share their opinions as well.
You'll hear from Paula Pant, Joe-Saul Sehy, Mindy Jensen and many more on their thoughts about cryptocurrency (Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc).
Additionally, we have an interview with John from the Pacific-Northwest about how he became a millionaire by 40!
Today, we’re talking about being a stay-at-home mom versus a working mom.
This can be an incredibly difficult decision for mothers after they have children. Do I stay at home or do I continue working?
Cat Alford, Author of "Moms Got Money", is here to help and she's going to shed some light on why it doesn’t always need to be such a black or white decision.

Will you be receiving money from the Child Tax Credit in 2021?
Based on our income this year, we will be receiving the tax credit and could be upwards of $500 per month starting in July.
Once again, Nicole and I completely disagree with what to do with this new money. We debate how we should use it and options for other families to figure out their plans for the stimulus money.
