    Planning for winter recreation and spending.Knowing the type of person you are, what you like to do and don’t like to do, and how often you will do those things.Buying verses renting your equipment.Doing your research ahead of time instead of winging it on your trip. 

    Key Takeaways:

    Don’t just assume the season pass is the best option, especially if you will only be going once or twice during the year.Buy your season passes early, you will often get additional benefits.Consider packing your food to save money on meals.Make your trip fit your financial life – set the money aside as part of your budget. 

    "Plan ahead of time, think about it the spring prior, and you can save a ton of money and guarantee a fun winter.”  Tammy Symons

    Balancing your investments.Knowing your objective, your comfort level with risk, and the timeframe of your money.Dollar cost averaging.How your instincts might lead you astray in finances. 

    Key Takeaways:

    Buying low and selling high will not always make you money.Money you need now should be invested differently than money you need for retirement several years down the line.Good, professional investors are wrong about 30% of the time – you’re going to buy some things that don’t work out.Fear makes people hurt more than greed. 

    "Keep in check with your overall visions."Tammy Symons

    Sometimes things fall apart, and if you’re not careful, you can fall apart too.Don’t get too far ahead of yourself financially.People tend to spend more money in the first few years of retirement than they did when they workedThere’s nothing wrong with living lean with no debt and saving like crazy, but early retirement doesn’t have to be the end goal of financial independence. 

    "Ask yourself, if you were 50 and you weren’t working, what would you do?" — KT Thomas

    In this episode, KT discusses:

    What Black Swan Events are and how they can affect the world.How Mortgage Changing (mortgages changing hands from one bank/lender to another) has changed over the last 20 years.How the 5 Black Swan Events of the last 20 years have changed how people spend money and invest.Things KT sees as potential risks in the future.Key Takeaways:

    If you own something that’s worth less than what you paid for, you have two options: stay and pay or write it off and go.Pay attention in the markets and world economy as it can and will affect you and your investments in some way.Almost nobody will see Black Swan Events coming, and most of those that do will discount it until it’s too late. The future is anyone’s guess.The economy is a cycle and it will change."Most Black Swans have an essence of greed.” - KT Thomas

    In this episode, KT and Tammy Symons discuss:

    The benefit of paying off your mortgage versus investing your money.Some of the factors to consider when you’re going into retirement.The historical pattern of mortgage interest rates over the last 10+ years and how it is changing now.The pros and cons of some of the ways in which you can use your investments to pay/pay off your mortgage.Key Takeaways:

    There is no one size fits all answer to financial questions regarding your home.Going into retirement with no major financial obligations is far more reassuring than having large financial obligations.Pay attention to your interest rates over various debts – The rule of thumb states pay off your highest interest rate first.Don’t take money out of your home to put it into the market."If you have a mortgage right now, this is the lowest mortgage that you are going to have. If you have gotten it over the last 10 years…"Tammy Symons

    Marty Sink – CASA of New Hampshire

     

    In this episode, KT and Marty Sink discuss:

    How to start a charity and those things Marty didn’t know until she had started.What CASA of New Hampshire does and how it helps children and families in the community.How CASA of New Hampshire grew and how it has changed since it’s originally start up.Ways to get involved with CASA of New Hampshire. 

    Key Takeaways:

    Surround yourself with people who have some of the expertise that you don’t have and be willing to rely on them.We can’t change the past, but we can make the future better.Fundraising and sales are similar – you do better if you believe in your cause.It’s about building relationships in everything that we do. 

    "We grew slowly, and we grew carefully. We were always reflecting back on, and evaluating, how we were doing what we were doing, so that we could constantly be improving our service delivery to the courts and to the children that we serve."Marty Sink

    The Coin Up App is spare change in a jar gone digital and going to charity.The donor has control of the donation, gets credit for it, and gets to see the impact of what they are doing.This is a personal way that you can direct your social capital to a cause that means something to you.We can support these non-profits to allow them to execute their mission. With everyone giving a little, we can help support the non-profits a lot."Just sign up once and forget about it. You’re giving on a regular basis and the charity is being able to rely on a monthly, recurring revenue which they haven’t been able to do before, in most cases."Leena Patidar

    In this episode, KT and Sylvie di Giusto discuss:

    What an image consultant is and what they do.How what you do on social media is just as important as what your appearance says about you.Ways to show your individuality while keeping with your professional image.Managing your image for long-term, not just today. Think about where you want to be, then present yourself as that now with your appearance and communication skills.Key Takeaways:

    There are three things you have to consider: what do you want to be known for, if others really perceive you the way you want to be known, what does the brand I work for/represent want to be known for?The more money (or children) involved, the more trustworthy they want you to look.Shop cheap, shop expensive, shop smart. Shop cheap/affordable for the trends. Shop expensive for investment pieces to show you are able to finance them and invest in yourself so you can invest in your clients. Shop smart – invest in your wardrobe out of season and use the internet to your advantage.You are the most important person in your life and your career. Be willing to invest in yourself, make smart decisions, but remember, looking good is not enough. You have to follow up with your behavior and communication."I encourage you to invest in yourself because you are the most important human being in your life. Show yourself some respect and be willing to invest in yourself. "Sylvie di Giusto

    In this episode, KT discusses:

    How the market trends in August due to vacations.Diversifying and risk and how it worked with the market this year.Why people don’t sell even when prices are high.What stock buy backs are, why they matter, and how it is effecting the markets this year.Key Takeaways:

    71% of the S&P500 return was generated from only 4 companies – Amazon, Microsoft, Apple, Netflix.Staying in stocks is not the same as buying stocks.September and October tend to be the worst months on average most years.Be careful about frequent round-trippers – those that buy back and sell over and over again, as it can change the price of your stocks often. 

    "Don’t get too caught up in the idea of loving one company or one part of the market. These sectors come in and out of style over the course of the year."KT Thomas

    In this episode, KT and Joan Kuhl discuss:

    The day to day barriers that hold women back in business.The benefits of women’s conferences.The power of drive-time education.Being willing to embark on learning journeys with those in your company, and keeping the doors of communication open regarding these topics. 

     

    Key Takeaways:

    Having a positive mindset can influence all aspects of your life, personally and professionally.Think about networks as a movement possibility, not just a connection group.Networks should be collaborative, not competing against each other. People are identifying as more and more things and we don’t want to isolate them as a singular thing.No one group can make the changes insularly. We all need to work together to make the changes that we want to see in the business world. 

     

     

    "You’ve got to have a tribe. You’ve got to have a team of people, both women and men, that you can drive as allies, that are also going to work for that common purpose and also have influence in different aspects of the company."Joan Kuhl

    We've been told that certain podcast platforms had some technical issues with Episode 49, Lisa Keslar, so we decided to post it again as a bonus episode so no one missed any of this amazing content.

    In this episode, KT and Lisa Keslar discuss:

    Buying the insurance that makes sense for you and your family.Types of questions people should be asking their agents.Finding the best possible coverages.What insurance you should have if you're worried about being sued. 

    Key Takeaways:

    Your agent should always be checking to make sure you are on the right plan.Look at quote differences and decide if you're willing to pay the difference for higher coverage.Your agent should be more like your partner.Every carrier is very different."People who want to have better coverage have fewer claims because they're more cautious and therefore, are less risky and so their premiums are lower." — Lisa Keslar

    In this episode, KT and Tammy Symons discuss:

    What the The Family and Medical Leave Act is and how people can use it.Having a cash reserve and understanding if it is enough money.Protecting yourself if you get sick.Understanding the benefits of The Family and Medical Leave Act. 

    Key Takeaways:

    The The Family and Medical Leave Act is not a paid leave, but it does protect your position, although this does change depending on your company/state.You can take up to twelve weeks in a twelve-month time period to use a medical leave.Understanding what is considered cash reserve. If you cannot easily convert it to cash, it is not cash reserve.The cheaper the insurance policy, the less likely it will protect you. 

    "If your employer does not have a paid medical leave option then, it is important to know what they do offer." — Tammy Symons

    In this episode, KT and Lisa Keslar discuss:

    Buying the insurance that makes sense for you and your family.Types of questions people should be asking their agents.Finding the best possible coverages.What insurance you should have if you're worried of being sued. 

    Key Takeaways:

    Your agent should always be checking to make sure you are on the right plan.Look at quote differences and decide if you're willing to pay the difference for higher coverage.Your agent should be more like your partner.Every carrier is very different. 

    "People who want to have better coverage have less claims because they're more cautious and therefore, are less risky and so their premiums are lower." — Lisa Keslar
