On today’s show we are joined by special guest Josh Gordon from the Nonconformistfamily.com. Josh joins us to talk about how he and his family are living on less than $2,100 a month and enjoying it, the importance of agreeing with your spouse on how you are going to spend your money, and why they are striving to be a nonconformist family. In addition Josh shares why he started the 1 month to $1,000 challenge coming up in September and shares his hope for the project.

On today’s show we are joined by Steve Stewart of Moneyplansos.com. Steve has been a guest before on the show discussing how to dump credit cards. But today he joins us to discuss the book Debt Free U by Zac Bissonnette. In Zac’s book he shows why student loans can be very dangerous, what parents can do to negatively impact their child’s economic future as well as their own, and he shows how you can actually graduate from college without any student loans by simply working hard and going to a school you can afford.

Steve and I have a great discussion and talk about some of our favorite chapters in the book including the dangers of student loans, the public vs. private school debts, and even the ridiculousness of the FAFSA form. Steve has had Zac on his podcast as a guest and he is a very smart and knowledgable guy.

This is a must read for not only students and parents of college students, but also for fellow financial coaches to use as a good resource when you are working with clients.

In addition, Steve also discusses how he thought of the idea for the Great Recovery on I-70 series and what he hopes will come out of this. Remember if you are in the Central Ohio area please join us on Sept 13th at 7pm at the Hilliard Branch of the Columbus Library. We would love to have you there and hope you bring a friend. For more information or to RSVP please visit our Meetup page.

On today’s show we discuss an email I received from a listener wanting to know my advice about becoming a financial coach. Being a financial coach is hard work, but worth it and I share some observations I have learned over the past year about people and how they handle their money.

Personal finance is very personal and it is hard to get people to discuss their finances and to make themselves be vulnerable. In addition people are content with being average financially, but as I and others have talked about before, you don’t want to be average financially.

Finally, we share some more details about a couple of projects JW’s Financial Coaching is doing in the month of September. The first is the Cash, Credit, College, and Career course part of the Great Recovery on I-70 series. For Columbus, Ohio the first class is Tuesday September 13th at 7pm at the Hilliard branch of the Columbus Public Library. We are very excited to be bringing this event to Columbus so we would appreciate it if you would RSVP if you are coming as well as spreading the word around the city.

Also the 1 month to $1,000 Challenge will be starting in September, courtesy of Josh Gordon of the NonConformistFamily.com. I am excited to part of such an amazing group of talented individuals teaching you how to earn an extra $1,000 in one month. To me this is an investment you must make if you are looking for ways to earn some extra money and pay off debt or build a savings fund. You can purchase the course for only $67* and you will receive 3 emails a week filled with interviews, as well as a weekly seminar.

On today's podcast we discuss how to prepare financially during a pregnancy. We have discussed our experience in other endeavors before but today we are going to focus on what we have learned about the financial impacts of having children and share some tips on how to keep the cost of having children at a minimum.

The following previous podcasts were mentioned on the show: When is it ok to not work the financial plan and Talking about Health Savings Accounts (HSA's)

In addition, I share some results from a poll on the JW's Financial Coaching Facebook Fan page dealing with your feelings on the whole debt crisis/stock market drop/USA credit rating change. The results so far have been quite interesting and I'm still curious about what you think, so if you have not voted yet, please take the time to do so!

We also share some exciting projects that we are proud to be a part of. The first has to do with the website 2livedebtfree.com. It is a project that some other financial coaches and I have started to share financial information. Right now it is just posts from our websites but we hope to grow it more in the next week months.

Next, I am proud to announce that I am participating in the 1 month to $1,000 challenge. It is an honor to be a part of a project with so many other great minds. If you are up to it, why not invest $67*, do the work and find out how you can make $1,000 extra in a month.

Finally, if you live in Columbus, OH or the surrounding central Ohio area, mark your calendars for Tuesday September 13th at 7pm at the Hilliard Branch of the Columbus metropolitan library. There we will be having the first event of the Great Recovery on I-70. The event is free and we will be showing you how to focus on YOUR economy and improve your finances. More details to follow in the coming weeks.
