Credit Cards Capitalize on Crypto Payments
Learn why crypto is going mainstream with credit cards, stock indices, and securities regulators. Are you investing well for financial freedom...or not? As we live our lives, we have seen enormous money be made in real estate, technology stocks, etc. and have seen wild swings in markets before. They can feel scary at the time, but in hindsight are often tremendous opportunities for future financial success. 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!

8 Key Lessons from the Ultralearning Experiment
Last year, I conducted an experiment in Ultralearning that I hoped would help me achieve a lifelong dream of mine of writing and releasing an album. I’m happy to say it was far more successful than I ever imagined it would be! As I mentioned in the initial Ultralearning podcast episode, the hope for the 3-month experiment was that it would accelerate my progress towards my goal and make the process more enjoyable. Well, it did all that and more… I ended up finishing a song during that 3-month experiment and I can’t believe it but I just released that single today! Not only did I write a song during the experiment, I continued writing music since then and I now have enough material for an album! Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought this experiment would help me make so much progress but it has! In today’s podcast episode, I go through everything I learned and explain why the Ultralearning Experiment helped me push past the self-doubt and self-destructive habits that have plagued me in the past. I also describe the new routines the experiment helped me develop and why those new habits have allowed me accomplish more than I ever have before! Highlights * How to get your brain ready (and why it’s essential for making progress) * The best way to make developing new habits easier * What you should focus on and why * How to be original and creative * Why you should make your project “real” (even if it makes you feel silly) * When it’s worth spending more money instead of less * Why you should expect to encounter the “gap” and how to get over it

How to Get Thousands More in Social Security
For more than half of Americans, Social Security will be providing more than half of their retirement income. Since Social Security is a government program available to virtually all Americans, you'd think there would be no secrets to "game" the system: no tips or tricks that could result in bigger monthly checks. But there are things you can do to squeeze more out of the Social Security program, especially if you have a spouse who's also eligible. Claiming at the right time, for example, can lead to thousands more in monthly payments over your lifetime. In this week's "Money" podcast ( https://www.moneytalksnews.com/podcasts/ ) , we're going to explore techniques to maximize your Social Security. We're also going to talk about whether our younger listeners should expect to receive the benefits when their time arrives. As usual, I share the broadcast booth with longtime financial journalist and fellow podcaster Miranda Marquit ( https://www.moneytalksnews.com/author/mirandamarquit/ ). Joining us this week is Jeff Miller, a former professor of economics at Gallaudet University, and founder of Social Security Choices ( https://www.moneytalksnews.com/solutions/social-security/ ) , a company providing personalized reports to help consumers decide when to claim Social Security in order to maximize lifetime income.

Kornel Szrejber: Investor
How To Structure Your Investments For An Early Retirement
In this episode, we’re going to cover how you can retire early, or at the very least, semi-retire early so that you have more time for friends, family and recreation. My guest for this month is Mark Seed, who instead of rushing to achieve some giant investment portfolio number and fully retiring to never have to work again, he is instead taking what I believe, is the more efficient, sustainable and fulfilling approach of fully embracing an early semi-retirement, instead of a full stop early retirement. Mark is very much a DIY Canadian investor like myself and has a lot of knowledge when it comes to financial planning here in Canada as he’s actually executing his own early semi-retirement. We have an absolute blast geeking out on these subjects in the interview, and I truly believe that by you listening in, you’ll get some really great actionable insights on how you can optimize your own financial independence and early retirement journey (to get there quicker). Questions: * Where are you right now in terms of your financial independence, retire early journey? * I consider you as part of the FIRE movement, but I know that you also have some problems with it. Can you take us through these issues or concerns? * How are you structuring your portfolio for your early semi-retirement? * Once you pull the trigger and quit your day job in a few years, what is the process and structure that you’re going to follow to allow you to live off your investments? (ex. VPW?) * When it comes to living off your investments in full or semi-retirement, you and I are big fans of the variable percentage withdraw method. Can you talk about what that is for anybody that is not familiar, and why do you like this approach over a more static approach like the 4% rule? * There are many different ways to structure a variable percentage withdraw strategy (ex. Using different spending floors and ceilings, incorporating it with a bucket strategy, etc.). How are you personally structuring your VPW process? * How do you plan on dealing with sequence-of-returns risk in your early retirement? And for anybody not familiar, can you define what sequence-of-returns risk is? * The last time you were on my podcast, I think you mentioned about potentially moving away from your dividend stocks in retirement, and focusing on just a total return approach, and maybe migrating your dividends stocks to passive, broad market index ETFs. What are your thoughts about that now? * I’d like to stress to everybody watching and listening that when it comes to living off your portfolio in early retirement or early semi-retirement, there isn’t one silver bullet solution that’s perfect for everyone. So, a good process is that when you are approaching your financial independence number, start learning about all the different ways that you can structure your portfolio for your early retirement, and then pick and/or modify one so that it’s a good fit for you. Then share that with a good fee for service financial planner to get their take, as you really want a professional 2nd set of eyes on something like this before you pull the early retirement or early semi-retirement trigger. Do you agree with that approach Mark?

Top ETFs in Canada Guide & Best High-Interest Savings Account: In this guide, I go over what I personally invest in, and why I invest in it. The investments that I talk about ​are literally where we have almost our entire net worth (apart from our house), and is what we are primarily living off right now in our early retirement. At the very least you’ll learn about some great ETFs to consider for your portfolio, and if you are new to ETFs, it’ll give you a nice list of some top ETFs to consider from the thousands that are out there. The guide is available for free to any listeners that that use my special link to sign up for a free savings account with the bank that I personally use, EQ Bank.

You also get unlimited transactions, unlimited Interac e-transfers, can take out your money at any time if you need it, and there are no minimum balances. Because of those reasons, I’ve been with them ever since they launched in Canada years ago, and it’s where I keep my entire emergency fund and spending money.
