Brandon and his wife Amanda are refreshing in every way and light years ahead of most in understanding the fundamentals of good money management. I love the title of their new brand and we can all find a higher purpose, community and impact of generations in all of our daily lives if we’re intentional in doing it.
This is a great podcast hosted by great people. These two have street cred as business owners themselves. Some might call Brandon the safe money expert, I think of him as a financial magician! I have known Brandon for a number of years in a number of different capacities. Currently he is helping my wife and I by creating a plan not just for retirement but helping us fund the cycles of life in our future and present. He is helping make things possible in our life that we never thought possible. Thanks Brandon!
Unique Twist on Boring Money Talks
I think what I like most about this podcast is the uniqueness. Money and finances can be a boring topic but Amanda and Brandon find a much different way to personalize it. I've followed their other podcasts for a while now so I knew the amount of knowledge they had from their own experiences, but I'm really enjoying the approach they took with this podcast. Sometimes we hear advisors say we should be doing A,B,C,D - all the way to Z with our money, but they are focused on simplifying and getting back to common sense approaches that set up previous generations for success. Looking forward to hearing more episodes.
