When you choose to remain ignorant about how money really works, you are actually part of the problem. You can become part of the solution.

“The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.” ― Albert Einstein

This is your opportunity to experience financial wellness coaching with Debt Shepherd. And we’re doing it before the holiday season of spending temptation gets here.

Free Coaching is available to one listener. Your opportunity is open for two weeks.

1) Tell me your story:
Between now Fri Nov 11/8/2013 and Mon. 11/25/2013. I’ll pick the best submitted story. Please limit it to one page if you can. Use the “Your Story” tab at the top of this page, leave a voicemail by clicking the red voicemail tab on the right of this page, or send an email (top right of this page).

2) Free coaching:
Offered to the listener whose story is picked. We’ll do an hour or two of coaching by phone to get you started on solving your most pressing financial problem.

3) Interview before coaching:
We’ll do an interview for the podcast before you start your 30 day journey to financial wellness. During the 30 days, you’ll have unlimited access to me by email. You’ll also have access to me by phone during specified time frames.

4) Interview after coaching (30 days):
After a month of implementing change in your money life, we’ll spend time again and record the conversation for the podcast. Our listeners will get to hear how it started for you, what you did to kick start changing and where you’re headed.

chalice

PODCAST AUDIO – click to listen

Definition:
Chalice – Vessel or cup. Container for liquid.

Famous example:
Holy Grail – Tradition says Jesus used the cup at the Last Supper to institute Mass. Other stories claim that Joseph of Arimathea used the cup to collect and store the blood of Christ at the Crucifixion.

What does a cup do?
What is it’s purpose?
What’s most important? Cup or contents?
Half empty, half full? Does it quench my thirst?

Drink from your own chalice analogy:
Drink from your own cup
Draw from your own wisdom
Dip your bucket into your own well
You are the source of your abundance
You are the source of your wisdom

And so it is with money and borrowing it:
Stop looking outside yourself for your abundance

credit score

PODCAST AUDIO – click to listen

In this 111th episode I talk to Oscar Smith about the ugly math of credit scores.

Questions:
Who’s responsible for what’s on your credit report?
Is using credit reports to screen job applicants considered discriminatory?
What factors are used to determine your credit score?

The bottom line is credit reports aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. The better your scores, the better price you get when borrowing money and paying rates of, for instance, car insurance.

Your credit score is not who you are as a person. All a high credit score means is this:
You’re good at going into debt and good at paying interest to the bank. Is that something to be proud of? You decide.

Title pawn loans, pay day loans, rent-to-own. They all practice what’s called Ugly Math. You pay ridiculously high fees and rates of interest.

In this episode I sit down with Oscar Smith and we discuss what ugly math is, how to avoid it, and why it’s important. Oscar and I are working to make ugly math a weekly episode.
