College is not getting any cheaper.

Kristina shares the details of how she got it done and dispels some myths about scholarships as well.

After visiting friends in their beautiful updated homes lately, Nicole and I are feeling a little discontentment. We are a bit envious of their awesome abodes.

But is that natural? Is contentment something we can talk about but never fully become?

In this "BEST OF BREAD & WINE" episode from December 2020, Nicole and I explore this topic together and see what we can do about this situation.

After reading "Die With Zero" by Bill Perkins, I feel like a changed man. I've gone from super saver for the last decade of my life to now maximize my life experiences as much as possible.

Nicole and I discuss why I enjoyed the book so much and how she feels about the ideas in Die with Zero. The time for us to maximize our life experiences is upon us ... don't worry my inner saver will keep us in check.

How’s your “Digital Wellness” these days?

As a parent, this is something I’m working on constantly. But as someone who is quite often "connected", it's difficult to find a balance that works for me as a father, husband, and small business owner.

Author Mark Ostach joins me today to share how we can live with phones, laptops, and all of our other devices and still be present with those we love.

If you get advice from your financial advisor and you don't agree, should you follow it anyway? After all, they probably have more education and experience than you.

But in the end, aren't your motivations and goals more important?

Nicole and I explore this topic after receiving a note from a listener about them disagreeing with the advice they received from their financial advisor.

Our family has reached Coast FIRE!

After saving and investing over $500,000 before our 40th birthdays, we are pumping the breaks on investing for retirement and focusing on other goals in our lives. 

Find out how we did it and what those goals are in today's episode. 

Also, for our Be the Change segment, Ed Grocholski from Junior Achievement shares why it's important to teach kids financial and entrepreneurial skills ... especially after the pandemic. 

Lastly, we have another money quiz with my daughter Zoey and we'll read the review of the month!

Are you feeling like you're simply reacting to the moment right in front of your face?

Yeah, we've been there (and still catch ourselves doing it). It's in our nature evidently.

But how can we get out of reaction mode and into planning mode?

Nicole and I explore how we've improved as parents and what we're doing to continue that improvement by thinking more than one step ahead.
