Episode 9 - What is YOPE

November 17, 2017

Your Personal Economy is about focusing on what’s important in your world versus what’s going on or important to the world outside. It’s a mindset and a philosophy – to make decisions on what matters most. It measures what matters most to you including: family, home, health, wellness, dreams, goals, legacy, giving, and more. It only works when developed into a plan of action followed up by a discipline to implement and stay within this mindset.




Episode 8 - Money for Today and Money for Tomorrow

November 17, 2017

In this podcast, Justin shares how optimal planning requires a balance between money for today and
money for tomorrow. Structure and discipline are necessary to implement this balance. Most people have their income deposited into one checking account. Throughout the month, they spend that money on current day lifestyle. In the event there is anything left at the end of the month, they may save some of that to have money for tomorrow. Oftentimes, this approach produces little to no money for tomorrow.

Episode 7 - What is More Important? Savings Rate or Rate of Return?

September 30, 2017

Most people focus solely on rate of return and are not aware that savings rate has a significantly larger impact on wealth building than rate of return. The rate of return conversation is what is marketed and it becomes a way to create immediate gratification (or not). By focusing on savings rate, you focus on what you can control and when doing so, you can create a more favorable (and enjoyable) outcome to your wealth building than if you solely focus on rate of return which is outside of your control.
