Happy Thanksgiving! This Turkey Day, we're giving you an encore of one of our favorite episodes on the money hacks EVERYONE should know about! This was one of our top shows of last year and will teach you how to save better, spend less, and travel for CHEAP! Enjoy! ______ Travel hacks, spending hacks, medical hacks. If there’s one thing that Chris Hutchins has learned from hosting the All the Hacks podcast, it’s that everything is negotiable. You can travel to over sixty countries for (almost) free, outsource your cooking at a reasonable rate and even get free money once forgotten. Chris should know—he’s done all this and more as he works to optimize every aspect of his life, both financially and personally! Chris was hacking at a very young age. In high school, he made a fake magazine so he could score free press passes to concerts. When he was away at boarding school, he would buy whole pizzas and sell them by the slice just to afford a few slices of his own. Then, later when he quit his job to travel the world, Chris and his partner hit over sixty countries, using credit card points to globetrott from South Africa to Singapore! Now, as a father, Chris is more concerned about hacking his time. He’s got kids to take care of and doesn’t want to waste a second of his day that could be spent planning for, or playing with, his children. In today’s episode, you’ll hear some of the most insane life hacks, from hiring a personal chef for a fraction of the cost to getting free champagne at any hotel stay and even snagging twenty to thirty percent off of your dream vacation villa. These hacks work (we tried them in real-time), and you may need a pen and paper to write them all down! In This Episode We Cover Credit card points, travel hacking, and how to get flights for free (or at a steep discount) Outsourcing and delegating everything so you spend more of your time with those who are most important Simple principles for an optimized life and why conventional wisdom is usually out of whack How to get deep discounts off of vacation properties during your next big trip Why you should NEVER cancel a flight until twelve hours before takeoff Where to find “unclaimed money” you never knew you had (we found some ourselves!)

HGTV’s Heather and Tarek El Moussa have built an empire that any entrepreneur would be jealous of. They’ve collectively flipped over a thousand homes, started syndications with tens of millions of dollars invested, have a TV show that rakes in money for them to flip more houses, AND they do it all while raising a family. And while they’ve created the life they’ve always dreamed of, some unintended side effects have recently emerged that make things less-than-glamorous. We’ll touch on the recent “drama” in today’s episode, but before we do, Heather and Tarek break down precisely what they did to build the business they own today. And if you’ve ever thought of flipping houses before, Tarek gives invaluable advice on finding deals, hiring (and firing) contractors, why he’s spending more money than EVER before on renovations, and how you too can build a multi-million dollar house flipping business.  But that’s not all. After a recent slew of negative press, Tarek finally breaks the silence on a recent deal gone wrong and gives the story none of the news outlets would share on how he’s handling a barrage of tenant complaints, online harassment, and even death threats.  In This Episode We Cover How the El Moussas flipped over one THOUSAND homes across California Finding house flipping deals and how to see the “potential” in a hideous home Wholesaling real estate and why Tarek was forced to stop flipping  Why Tarek sees “rough times” ahead and how YOU must pivot if you invest  On-air “drama,” how much of it is real and raw, and the effects it has on Heather and Tarek Tarek’s recent deal gone wrong and how he’s doing everything he can to make it right And So Much More!

Teaching your kids about money is one of the most CRUCIAL parts of parenting. So why do so many Americans completely neglect financial literacy for kids? Is it too awkward of a subject? Do parents feel like they don’t even grasp personal finances themselves? What happens if YOUR kid goes into the world with zero money mastery? If you have children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or loved ones with kids, THIS is what you MUST teach them. Instead of Mindy and Scott telling you what they taught their kids, Katie Trautman comes on the show to share what her FIRE father taught her about money. You may recognize Katie’s name; her father, Mark, was on the show just a few months ago. Mark was able to retire at age fifty, get Katie through college debt-free, and travel to his heart’s desire. He taught Katie some crucial personal finance lessons many of us never learned. From saving to spending, investing, retirement accounts, and more, Katie goes through some of the top lessons her father taught her about finances before she left the house. Katie is about to start her first full-time job, and with a healthy emergency reserve, full retirement accounts, and the right money mindset, she’ll show you how she plans to retire earlier than her father even though she JUST started working. In This Episode We Cover Financial lessons you MUST teach your children before it’s too late How to fund your child’s college through tax-advantaged investing accounts Allowances and how to entice your child to save more than they spend The “20%” rule that Katie has ALWAYS followed to set herself up for financial success Why your kids SHOULD know how much money you make, save, and spend The one thing Katie wishes she could change about growing up in a FI family And So Much More!

Want to reach FIRE long before you’re sixty-five? If you make a decent income, invest diligently, and watch your spending, you STILL could fall into the “trap” most FIRE-chasers find themselves in. By making one BIG mistake, you could be accidentally forcing yourself to work for years or decades longer to finally retire, even if you’ve reached your FIRE number! What “trap” are we referring to, and how do you ensure you’ll hit FIRE on your schedule? Stick around to find out! Today, we talk to Chris, who works in medical sales and makes an income anyone would be happy to have. He lives in a high-cost-of-living area with a million-dollar home, expensive property and state taxes, and high expenses. But he still saves a solid amount of income every month. What’s he doing with his extra cash? Investing in index funds, generously donating, and…saving to buy into a franchise? This franchise investment could make Chris millions, but there are a few red flags that Mindy and Scott can’t ignore. With a substantial initial investment and a partnership that could be tested at any point, Chris wants to know the best place to deploy his ample capital. Does he go head-first into the franchise, stick with index funds, or build robust retirement accounts? And with a FIRE timeline of ten years or less, how does he ensure he'll have enough money to support his lifestyle? In This Episode We Cover The common FIRE “trap” that could force you to work for far longer at your job Investing in retirement vs. after-tax brokerage accounts and which to focus on for FIRE How to access retirement funds even earlier if you decide to retire early Investing in a franchise and what you MUST know before you put your money into one The perfect FIRE portfolio and how to allocate your investments to support your early retirement lifestyle Building/buying your forever home and when to put it off to invest And So Much More!

You want to retire, but you’ve got credit debt, auto loans, and student loans. It feels like every time you get your paycheck, it quickly slips away, and at the end of every month, you’re left in the same position, or worse, than thirty days prior. What’s happening, and why is it SO hard to get out of debt? And will you EVER be able to retire if you keep living this way? Seth Godwin was fired from his job while holding $30,000 in credit card debt. He had no way to pay it off, but somehow, over the next two years, he was able to become debt-free, increase his credit score by hundreds of points, and become one of the internet’s leading financial influencers. After crawling out of debt, Seth began working at a financial institution, looking at car loans, realizing how many people, like him, had been scammed into throwing tens of thousands of dollars away. Now, on the other side of the financial spectrum, Seth is financially flourishing with a steady stream of income, stable investments, and twenty-seven (!) credit cards—but he’s still debt-free! In this episode, Seth will show you EXACTLY how car salespeople are scamming you, how to escape credit card debt confidently, what to do now that student loans are resuming, and why you SHOULDN’T trade in your old car. In This Episode We Cover The common auto loan scams that trick you into spending FAR more than you should Why you should NEVER trade in a “negative equity” car to upgrade The best car makes to buy (and two that rarely break down) How to crawl yourself out of credit card debt and come out with a 700/800 credit score How much money Seth makes on TikTok every month (it’s WILD!) Student loan resumption and whether college is worth the increase in salary And So Much More!

Will the housing market crash? If you’re like most Americans, the economy is starting to feel a bit unsettling. But, with so many homeowners locked into low mortgage rates or owning their homes outright, is there even a possibility of a housing crash, regardless of whether a recession does happen? The answer isn’t as straightforward as most people think, and if you don’t know the facts, you could get caught off guard. Mindy and Scott are back to answer YOUR money questions. This time, we’re taking questions from our Facebook Group, and MANY have to do with mortgage rates, home sales, and a potential crash. First, we answer what could cause a housing market crash in the near future. Then, a listener asks whether or not they should sell their home to pay off credit card debt. An investor wants to know if paying off their mortgage early beats the stock market, and a divorcee seeks to sell her home because of “bad juju.” The problem? She’s got a killer mortgage rate. Finally, we’ll debate stocks vs. real estate as the best path to FIRE! Got a money question you want to ask Mindy and Scott? Head over to the BiggerPockets Money Facebook group, or click here to submit your question on our next Q&A episode! In This Episode We Cover Could the housing market crash? And if so, which areas will be most affected? Crazy credit card debt and whether selling your home is worth being debt-free Should you stay in a house you hate just because you have a low rate? When leaving your business to go back to a W2 makes sense Paying off your mortgage early vs. investing in stocks when rates are sky-high The fastest path to financial freedom and whether stocks vs. real estate gets you there sooner And So Much More!

I absolutely love the BiggerPockets Money Podcast! It's been such a game-changer for me when it comes to managing my finances and learning about smart investing strategies. The hosts bring in such diverse and knowledgeable guests who share their real-life experiences and insights, which makes the content incredibly relatable and actionable. https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/Packaging-Mart One of the things I appreciate the most about this podcast is that it doesn't just focus on general advice; it dives deep into specific case studies and financial journeys. This gives me a better understanding of how people actually achieve their financial goals and overcome challenges. https://hubpages.com/@packagingmart

I don't understand a 40K house. the building materials alone for a house cost more than that, never mind the labor. Plus the cost of the land? if the houses are so low cost, why would anyone rent? I couldn't even buy a driveway for that price...

This is basically me! Key takeaway: Get a higher salary via a higher-paid career (rather than lower-paid job + side hustles/hobbies), before starting house-hacking

MINDY IS THE ABSOLUTE WORST!!! this podcast gets great guests with awesome stories, however, you never get to hear them talk because mindy is ALWAYS talking about herself and forcing her opinions on everyone else. a common phrase from her is "I'm right, dont listen to anyone else or yourself or look at the numbers of a deal, im right" Mindy Jensen is single handedly ruining an otherwise great show. Bigger Pockets, can you get a new host please?

Great Podcast. A couple things not discussed or maybe I missed them. 1) Higher 401k contributions for tax purposes 2) HSA 3) Roth coversion ladder which allows you to access money way before retirement age. This is a key to maxing out your retirement accounts.

the fact that this man graduated without student debt and has still gone on to helping people pay off over a billion dollars in student loan debt shows something. it's cool to me how people can make a business out of helping people. It's one of the reasons I love the FI community. I'm excited to get to the point that I can help more and more people better their lives.

I am for sure going to start doing this. I can cut but I suck at grocery shopping and a lot of my food goes to waste. I've wanted to start meal planning and I'm going to check out Erin's website and really start doing what I need to cut my spending in this area.
