Man Alive

Mar 4, 2021

Today's Man Alive podcast guest, William Matthews, is the author of three books, including Financial Lessons Learned From My Broke @$$ Friends. He brings lightness, humor and practicality to the financial domain, to help you make smart decisions with your money.

It's important to be current with yourself about how you're doing with money these days. Are you making as much as you need? Are you saving for your future? Do you have a clear sense of a financial plan in the short and long term? 

Money is one of the greatest causes of stress people face. It's stressful on its own and then navigating it with a romantic, or business, partner magnifies that stress. 

Having clarity and plans with your finances reduces stress and allows you to strategize and navigate out of financial hardship. But most of us never learned how to create this clarity! Most education, at least in the U.S., does not include financial literacy.

In our Man Alive conversation we discussed:
  • Common financial pitfalls and how to avoid them
  • How to set yourself up for a more secure financial future
  • Tips to save and be more conscious about how you spend your money
  • Options for borrowing money when you don't have it on hand 
  • Why you may not want to close your credit card and other tips for managing debt
