Podcasts are like the radio, but so much better. Personal finance podcasts can be a form of motivation while you are trying to get out of debt and take control of your finances. With technology at our fingertips, you can listen to a podcast anywhere. I, personally, enjoy listening to podcasts while I am at work or while I am driving. Podcasts help to keep me in a positive money mindset.
I listen to a few personal finance podcasts to motivate me with our debt payoff and just keeping current with the world of personal finance. It is inspiring to listen to stories from others who have taken charge of their finances and are changing their life.
Motivating Personal Finance Podcasts
You Need a Budget (YNAB) is my favorite personal finance budgeting tool. The podcast is short episodes discussing anything from using the budgeting tool better to useful tips on how to budget. Jesse Mecham recently started a new segment where he interviews and shares stories of people getting out of debt using his software. Even if you don’t use YNAB (and you should) you’ll find the episodes easy to digest and easy to implement.
The Dave Ramsey Show is a daily radio show that Ramsey Solutions turns into podcast episodes. In each episode, you’ll hear callers ask Dave questions regarding their finances and he will answer based on his personal finance teachings and biblical principles. I love listening to the debt-free screams in each episode to hear how others have paid off their debt and are now winning with money.
I recently found Tess Wicks and the Wander Wealthy podcast. Tess is a money coach and blogger who is teaching women about money mindset and conquering their financial realities. Tess covers multiple topics in personal finance including insurance, investing, retirement, saving, spending as well as topics like personal development and minimalism. It is a great show for a millennial who is looking for inspiration from someone who has been in a similar place.
Whitney Hansen and The Money Nerds Podcast has to be my favorite. Whitney releases two episodes per week. The Wednesday release is normally a longer episode where Whitney often brings on personal finance experts and talks about anything and everything from saving money, paying off debt, to investing and early retirement. Friday is a short episode where Whitney shares 5 Tips (called 5 Tip Friday) about various topics in personal finance. Listening to Whitney is like talking to a friend. She is very relatable and easy to listen to.
Ken Coleman is a Ramsey Personality who talks all about choosing a career and following your passion. His podcast is not necessarily about money. However, it helped me make the decision to launch my blog and helps other. Ken Coleman put me in a money mindset. I needed to be in control of my income and finances by pursuing my own business. The callers are also following Dave Ramsey and the 7 Baby Steps. All of the advice is aligned with what my husband and I are currently working on.
Getting out of debt and taking charge of your financial future is no small undertaking. Most people just sweep their finances under the rug and never truly take charge. If you want to change your life and change your family staying inspired is key. Listening to these three podcasts each week helps keep me motivated. They inspired to continue on my journey to financial freedom.
