Bonus: How Will Robots Change Our Financial Lives?
How do you feel about the idea of robots playing a bigger role in our financial lives? What does that even mean? I recently teamed up cloud computing firm Oracle to ask over 9,000 consumers and business leaders around the globe about their thoughts on the relationship between money and tech — specifically AI (artificial intelligence) and robots. What we discovered is that two in three people (67%) say they trust robots more than humans with their money. And 8 in 10 consumers think automated tools will replace personal financial advisors in the coming years.  Joining me today to discuss all of this for this special bonus podcast brought to us by Oracle, is Kimberly Ellison-Taylor, who has a diverse background in finance and technology; she is currently an executive director at Oracle and previous to Oracle she held positions at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center and Motorola. She and I discuss the benefits of leveraging technology in our financial lives and what this trend means for advisors. Kimberly also shares personal stories of her upbringing and what drove her to the field of tech and science. To learn more about the survey visit www.oracle.com/moneyandmachines More about Kimberly: She is a global technology and finance leader with over 29 years of career achievements. She is a sought-after keynote speaker and has received many awards and recognitions for her expertise and leadership, including Accounting Today's “Top 100 Most Influential People in Accounting” and CPA Practice Advisor's “25 Most Powerful Women in Accounting.” For the last 16 years, Ellison-Taylor has served in global leadership roles for Oracle Corporation and also currently advises C-Suite executives on cloud solutions that innovate and transform business. She is also an adjunct professor for Carnegie Mellon University’s Chief Information Officer Certificate program, teaching courses in Emerging Technologies & Innovation.   Learn more about your ad choices.

Interest Rates Are on the Rise
Learn why interest rates are rising and what sources of inflation are driving them. The article is here. Are you investing well for financial freedom...or not? Financial freedom is a combination of money, compounding and time (my McT Formula). How well you invest, makes a huge difference to your financial future and lifestyle. If you only knew where to invest for the long-term, what a difference it would make, because the difference between investing $100k and earning 2% or 10% on your money over 30 years, is the difference between it growing to $181,136 or $1,744,940, an increase of over $1.5 million dollars. Your compounding rate, and how well you invest, matters!

Business Case Studies To Make Your Family Finances Sing (with John Warrillow)
John Warrillow has built and sold many businesses, and has created a business value builder system used by thousands of businesses worldwide. With many, many years of experience under his belt, John knows a thing or two on how to bring value to a business. Today, he brings that wealth of knowledge with him to help make better financial sense for your family. Tune in for an insightful discussion featuring case studies, interesting stories, and maybe a new way of looking at your family's financial picture. Hot take incoming: every time you make a bad financial decision and lose big (let's say shorting GameStop to the tune of $200,000), maybe you should blame someone else and sue them to recoup your losses! Sound crazy to you? Tell that to Christian Iovin, the man suing leading Reddit investor "DeepF$%kingValue" over his part in the short squeeze. During our headlines, Joe and OG give a thorough deconstruction detailing how the "get-rich-quick" mindset can lead a person down some strange paths - including thinking that a social media figure is responsible for your investing choices. While we aren't without sympathy, we break down how Iovin willingly made his choice on what he thought was a great deal at the time, and offer up some sound advice to not get yourself caught between a rock and hard place - short squeeze or otherwise). We'll keep today's theme going with our second set of headlines. Bill Gates is now officially "meh" on Bitcoin (it's an improvement!), and financial advisors are ready to back the truck up to crypto. Now hold on a second if you think you know where this is going. We're not here to preach #teamcrypto or denounce the movement either way. What we are saying, like in our interview with John Warrillow, is that you need systems. We've said the same thing about Tesla and Apple, and the rules don't change for Bitcoin. The biggest danger to your portfolio isn't a Redditor or Capitol Hill, it's you. The best thing you can do for your bottom line is taking yourself OUT of the equation. Enough of that, moving on. Finishing out today's show is a Haven Life line question from Zac. He asks... (checking notes...)... is putting $20 a week into a somewhat random stock that has shown positive growth a good idea? Truth be told, we could have went a lot of different ways with this one. I'm proud to say the guys put some thought into this one, and not only give Zac an answer, but dive into some explanations on different stock analysis theories. Of course, Doug always gets some airtime for his trivia. Enjoy!
