Philip Dancy of Dancy With Money shares how to strategically use credit cards and the pain of paying with cash.

Episode 1202: How To Strategically Use Credit Cards AND The Pain of Paying: Carrying Cash by Philip Dancy of Dancy with Money

Philip Dancy joined one of the top investment banking firms upon his graduation from the Five Year MBA program at Hampton University. After starting his career in New York City and getting his first check, he understood that this “adulting” life wasn’t going to be simple. However, the one thing he knew he had to do was create a budget for himself. Through a period of trial and error, Philip was able to establish a solid foundation. As a result, Philip reached a point where he was comfortable and on a trajectory towards financial freedom. Philip’s main goal is to help millennials and Gen Z’ers (but ultimately everyone) establish a strong financial foundation through coaching while helping them turn steps into strides.

Darrow Kirkpatrick of Can I Retire Yet shares a surprising contender for tax-efficient retirement saving.

Episode 1200: A Surprising Contender for Tax-Efficient Retirement Saving by Darrow Kirkpatrick of Can I Retire Yet

Darrow Kirkpatrick is the founder of CanIRetireYet.com. He began serious investing in his mid-30s and retired at age 50. He's not a dot com millionaire and didn't become financially independent by flipping real estate or trading hot stocks. He did it the traditional way: hard work, frugality, prudent investing, and patience.
When it comes to personal finance, his top priorities are simplicity, reliability, and safety. Now his mission is to help others become financially independent as he did.

More recently, Chris Mamula has been managing the blog and he's a frequent writer on the site. Chris used principles of traditional retirement planning, combined with creative lifestyle design, to retire from a career as a physical therapist at age 41. After poor experiences with the financial industry early in his professional life, he educated himself on investing and tax planning. Now he draws on his experience to write about wealth building, DIY investing, financial planning, early retirement, and lifestyle design.
