The Good Financial Cents Show w/ Jeff Rose, CFP®

It is time to Grow Your Dough!

I have to apologize for bringing you in at such a late stage, so let me explain what this is all about.

The Grow Your Dough Challenge started on the blog a couple of years ago.  I had a contest between other bloggers where we each took $1,000 and invested any way we wanted.  At the end of the year we took a look to see who did the best job with their investments.

Last year I took this challenge to YouTube. This was a great way to show people how easy it is to get started investing.

With all that has gone on in 2020, I got a little behind on my updates. 

Let’s dive into the challenge and my results.

There have been many surprises with Covid-19, I didn’t expect this one!

I was curious how Covid-19 may be affecting life insurance.

Is this one of those things that people haven’t been paying for, due to other expenses? 

Is this something that people are more interested in purchasing during this time?

I decided to do a little research.  Tune in to find out what I learned.

Why I got into an argument on Twitter and why I STILL think I’m right….

At the time of this recording (Nov. 4th)…we still didn’t know who our President was going to be.

I tweeted …’Fact - it doesn’t matter which man wins President today.  Only YOU can make yourself work harder and build wealth.’

One of my followers took great offense to this, listen now for all the details.

If you say the wrong thing, you can be taken down in an instant.  Years of credibility can be washed away.

Today we are talking about something we haven’t talked about in a while….Passive Income.

We all know that making passive income is not that easy. It takes time.

I came across an article in Forbes that says you can make $940/month with 3 simple steps.

I’m going to talk about these three steps and share why I think it may not be that simple.

1. Open a brokerage account

2. Buying a closed end fund

3. Sit back and wait
