Have you ever done a juice cleanse or a “Whole30” challenge?
While I haven’t ever gone to that extreme, I DO always feel better physically and mentally after even just a few days of clean eating.
So if a quick “cleanse” can work for our health, why not try it with our money?
Just 30 minutes with Josh saved me thousands of dollars, so you owe it to yourself to listen to this episode and see if you can put some money back in your pocket too.

Try as I might to do all my shopping online, I still find myself running errands around town at least on a weekly basis.
And my guess is you’re in the same boat.
With Christmas and the holiday season coming up, I wanted to share a few cool apps and resources that can help you save money while you shop, make a few extra bucks, and even invest your change.
With Thanksgiving coming up, I want to introduce the concept of Gravy Time.
Gravy Time is the time you’re working because you want to, not because you have to.
Hopefully you have Gravy Time in your day, in your month, your year, and even your life.
Here’s how it works: Once you’ve earned enough to cover your obligations, everything else is gravy.
Your tax return will show you your total income, your adjusted gross income, and your taxable income, but those numbers don’t show the most important figure of all.
Your “taxable income” is meaningless.
So what’s the most important number the IRS doesn’t care about but you should?
Your net profit.
And it’s a habit you can start right away: spending money on credit cards whenever you can.
Over the last 10+ years, this simple habit has earned me thousands of dollars in free money, just for buying the stuff I would have bought anyway.
And because I pay my balance in full every month, they’ve never made a dime off me.
This post is about fueling your body efficiently, deliciously, and cheaply.
For most of this year, I realized I’ve realized I’m only eating 2 “meals” a day.
And because the lunch dish is very routine, that’s only 1 meal a day that requires any planning or out-of-the-ordinary shopping.
Last month I attended two industry conferences, ICON15 in Phoenix and New Media Expo in Las Vegas. My total travel and registration expenses were just $249.98 for both shows combined.
(Not including food and drinks.)
No matter what industry you’re in, I believe conferences are a great way to make lasting connections and friendships, and to learn from leaders in your space.
It’s tax season, and I think it would be foolish to give Uncle Sam more than you’re legally required to.
This week I’m joined by Joshua Sheats from RadicalPersonalFinance.com and the host of the Radical Personal Finance podcast.
He explains there are 2 tax codes: the personal tax code and the business tax code. As a business owner, even as a side hustler, there are a number of distinct tax advantages available to you. Listen in and keep your hard-earned dollars!
This week my car was due for an oil change so I dutifully took it into the shop like I do every 5000 miles.
Each trip there makes me nervous, because I have 115,000 miles on it, and I’m always worried they’re going to find something catastrophically wrong and crazy expensive that needs fixing.
This time, they informed me the battery tested low and was due to be replaced.
