On this Episode 56 of The Because Show, Jerilyn is all about the online Jeopardy test. How did she do? And we begin to talk about the thing you’re not supposed to talk about in polite company. Money. Do you find yourself overwhelmed by money confusion and financial garble or are you skilled at interest rates and cost-averaging stock purchases? Here are some resources you may find of interest:
- Dave Ramsey’s radio show
- Marketplace Money radio show
- Mint.com puts all your financial accounts in one place.
- Bankrate.com compare mortgage, interest and bank rates.
- Morningstar, mutual fund and stock information.
- Investing 101 by Kathy Kristof
Probably more info than you need, right? We’ll keep you posted on Amy’s progress throughout the year and please let us know if you want to jump on the bandwagon in streamlining your finances. Oh, and we mention some books including Dodie Smith’s ‘I Capture The Castle’ and Don Delillo’s ‘Cosmopolis’. Good stuff!
AND thanks so much for the latest iTunes reviews! Speaking of reviews, we have had an increase in the amount iTunes reviews! Listeners, old and new, can support the show by taking a half-minute and leaving an iTunes review. Or even just clicking on some darn stars would help? Of course, more reviews equals more movement to push our podcast back into the hot ‘n bothered ‘What’s Hot’ category that we love. And the best way you can support us is by spreading the word and telling a friend about our show – we love that!
Oh! Last year when Amy and Susan’s birthdays rolled around, we asked listeners call in to our voicemail to leave a sweet BIRTHDAY GREETING for best wishes and overall birthday happiness. It was great! Now you can call in and leave a message for Jerilyn and it will delight her around mid-February. Lots of advance notice here, so put it on your ‘to do’ list pronto.
