No Better Time

By No Better Podcast Network

There is no better time than the present to start learning something new, or working towards a big goal. There are things in our life we cannot avoid, like the need to prepare for retirement. This podcast grew from me realizing that I needed to take my finances head-on and start finding a way to build my wealth and creating sources of passive income. Follow my journey and learn with me!

49: What is Love?
Today I talk about what I think love is. What is unconditional love? What does it mean to love ourselves and why is that important? Is there anything we can do to remove our worthiness of being loved?  Click this link to support the Podcast! https://anchor.fm/nobettertime/support Logo created by Rufus Man (https://www.facebook.com/rufusman101) creator of Yonder Comics (https://www.patreon.com/yondercomics) Intro song: Cooking & Food Background Music | ITALIA by Alex-Productions | https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCx0_M61F81Nfb-BRXE-SeVA Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/deed.en_US Outro song: Above The Clouds by | e s c p | https://escp-music.bandcamp.com Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/deed.en_US

48: The Value in Stepping Back
48: The Value in Stepping Back
I’m still here! It’s been months since I posted an episode. I feel like so much has happened since my last episode. A lot of growth and introspection. I suddenly felt like it was time to record my thoughts this morning and I just started recording right then. I see this podcast evolving a bit from its original vision - but not entirely. I want to start focusing on a more holistic approach to living life to its fullest and seizing the day beyond just financial success. Building wealth will likely still have a place in the mix, but I want to focus on improving my/our mental game and how we approach life, work, family, friends, and the time we spend with our own mind. I hope you enjoy where this goes next! I’m not sure myself, but I love having a place to pour out my thoughts, and having a place to put my thoughts engages my mind to start looking around for new things to think and talk about.

47: All About Mortgages - Dylan Tucker
47: All About Mortgages - Dylan Tucker
Have you ever been so overwhelmed by something big, that you never even take the first step? Or maybe you waited way longer than necessary to get started? That is how I felt before ever buying my first house. It all seemed too complex and impossible to even approach. The truth is, buying a house or refinancing a mortgage is a big and complex process, but I have learned that working with the right people makes it feel simple. That is where today's guest Dylan Tucker comes in. Working with people that understand the complexities of things like the mortgage application process is key to keeping your sanity and also getting the most desirable results.  This truth goes beyond just mortgages. If there is something big we need to do, but many people need to do it, then I guarantee there are resources out there to guide you through it. So get started! Move forward with confidence! You can do it! Dylan is my personal Loan Officer/broker. Today we talk about how to prepare and approach the mortgage loan pre-approval and application process for first-time home buyers, or those looking to refinance. You can learn more about Dylan at https://www.communitylendinggroup.com/our-team/dylan-tucker/ or you can email him at dylan@communitylendinggroup.com. I hope you enjoy the episode!

46: Money Lessons Around Us - Kurtis Hanni
We don't have to look far to find lessons in the world around us.  My guest Kurtis Hanni specifically finds financial lessons in the world around him. In his podcast "Delve Into Money", he specifically reads non-financial books and finds ways to apply the lessons learned to money and finances. We had such a great conversation around what it takes to set ourselves up for success and how to not get discouraged when we inevitably make mistakes (because mistakes are truly bound to happen). I really love his perspective on life and how he thinks and talks about these important principles. I know you are gonna enjoy it! Learn more about Kurtis and his podcast by visiting delveintomoney.com Two books he brings up are "The Psycology of Money" by Morgan Housel and "Tiny Habits" by BJ Fogg Click this link to support the Podcast! https://anchor.fm/nobettertime/support Logo created by Rufus Man (https://www.facebook.com/rufusman101) creator of Yonder Comics (https://www.patreon.com/yondercomics) Intro song: Cooking & Food Background Music | ITALIA by Alex-Productions | https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCx0_M61F81Nfb-BRXE-SeVA Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/deed.en_US Outro song: Above The Clouds by | e s c p | https://escp-music.bandcamp.com Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/deed.en_US Other music: Ambivert by | e s c p | https://escp-music.bandcamp.com Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ Lucid Dreaming by | e s c p | https://escp-music.bandcamp.com Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/

45: Build Wealth With What You Have - Howard Dekkers
My guest today is the highly inspiring Howard Dekkers! Howard is the founder of the Howard Dekkers School of Success which can be found by visiting www.HowardDekkers.com. Howard is currently traveling the country in his RV with the sole purpose of spreading education about how to become financially free.  He didn't start really focusing on building wealth until he was in his late 30s. If you have listened to very many of my episodes, you probably know why that caught my attention! He has come up with a system that just works. You don't have to own your own business or make a huge salary to retire with wealth and live your best life. It really comes down to understanding how investing works, making a plan, and executing on it. That is where Howard's course comes in. He has broken down a path to understanding and building a plan. You can learn more about his message and even try his free 30-minute intro course at his website. Let's get moving! I hope you enjoy the interview. I know I did!

44: Teaching Children About Money - Nicole Bremner
My guest today is an example of success in many areas we would measure it by. Nicole Bremner is a investor, podcaster (The Nicole Bremner Podcast), author, and speaker (among many other things!). She grew up quite poor in Australia, but found herself highly successful in her early 20s making six figures in the banking industry, but not yet having the skills and understanding in how to manage her money. She is very passionate about teaching her children money management skills from an early age, so they will not find themselves in a similar situation. This is something I am also very passionate about as well. You can learn more about her at nicolebremner.com. I hope you enjoy the show!

43: QuickDive - Explaining Passive Income to a Child
43: QuickDive - Explaining Passive Income to a Child
I found myself explaining the concept of investing and passive income to my 8-year-old as a way to get him excited to do his jobs to earn money towards his "payday" on Saturday.  He doesn't feel the need to do his jobs since he already has some money. I'm trying to help him understand that if he keeps drinking water from a cup without adding more water, it will eventually be an empty cup. I then tried to help him understand the idea of making more than we spend so our money is growing rather than shrinking. That of course leads to the idea of taking our excess and investing it and having it grow while we sleep. I compared each of his invested dollars as being individual workers that are building more money for him. He then asked me how many "workers" he has in the stock market. He then wanted to know how many I have. I gave him a general answer of "thousands" compared to his roughly 200 workers to give him an idea of the possibilities. This may not have made a dent in his 8-year-old brain, but it sure got ME excited to get more dollar bills employed in the labor of makine me more passive income! I need to start taking more action and executing some of the ideas I have been thinking about! Let's get those dollars working for us!

42: Building a Business - Ron Aguilar
42: Building a Business - Ron Aguilar
This episode came at a very good time for me. I recorded it back in June and as I edited it today I realized how much I needed to hear what my guest Ron Aguilar (from Utah Valley Videos) had to say about building a business and also what to do when you find yourself burning the candle at both ends. I have been feeling very overwhelmed with all the things I have been taking on and have been reassessing my life and looking to establish more balance. Do I want to keep my side business going? Do I want to keep doing this podcast? All of these things are good things, but I'm questioning if trying to do it all is starting to catch up and affect my life in ways that I'm not super happy with. Ron is so awesome, and an inspiration. I hope you enjoy the conversation!

40: Learning From Others - Jason Baller
Today's guest is Jason Baller the co-host of the Sprinkled with Hope podcast. Today we discuss the things he has learned from his guests in the 100+ episodes they have recorded over the past year or so. He has noticed some recurring themes and truths that have come up across all those interviews. He has noticed that success is often tied to a person's ability to be humble and grateful. Being humble enough to ask for help in improving and then showing gratitude for the help we receive really goes a long way.  Jason is also now offering two separate courses on their podcast's website. you can learn more by going to: https://sprinkledwithhope.com/training-courses I hope you enjoy the conversation.

He tells his story of taking risks and pivoting throughout his life and career. He has bought homes in various cities and states as his work has moved him to new locations.

38: Building a Corporate Career - Betsy Jorgensen
Today's guest is the amazing Betsy Jorgensen! She discusses the things she has learned as she has made her way upwards in various large companies during her career so far. She has found herself doing things she did not originally expect like managing people and negotiating contracts with vendors. Even if you do not see yourself staying where you are, or even doing what you are doing forever, it's still important to learn how to make the most of your opportunities, especially when negotiating starting salaries and raises. Understanding how things work behind the scenes at companies in general, and learning how things work at your current company is very important to not leaving anything on the table when the time comes to negotiate.

Today I talk to Todd Bauerle (a returning guest!) about the power of awareness. No matter where we are in life, we always have room for more growth.

36: Building a Business - Camille Neilsen
Today's guest is Camille Neilsen, owner of U Dance Studio in Lehi, Utah. Her story is so interesting as she went from growing up studying and dancing ballet, to becoming a dance fitness teacher using Zumba and hip hop for gyms and others dance and fitness businesses. When she moved back to Utah from Washington state 2 years ago, she decided to go for it and start her own dance fitness studio, which has since evolved to other types of dance disciplines. Her story is so relatable, as she has learned to be confident and own her endeavor. That confidence can take some work to find at times, but it is within all of us!   You can learn more about and even take classes from her or one of her teachers by visiting utahdanceandfitness.com Click this link to support the Podcast! https://anchor.fm/nobettertime/support Logo created by Rufus Man (https://www.facebook.com/rufusman101) creator of Yonder Comics (https://www.patreon.com/yondercomics) Intro song: Cooking & Food Background Music | ITALIA by Alex-Productions | https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCx0_M61F81Nfb-BRXE-SeVA Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/deed.en_US Outro song: Above The Clouds by | e s c p | https://escp-music.bandcamp.com Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/deed.en_US Other music: Ambivert by | e s c p | https://escp-music.bandcamp.com Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ Lucid Dreaming by | e s c p | https://escp-music.bandcamp.com Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/

35: Maximizing Your HSA - Jonathan Gawrych
35: Maximizing Your HSA - Jonathan Gawrych
Do the letters HSA mean anything to you? If not, then this episode is for you! If you know what an HSA (Health Savings Account) is, then there is a decent chance there are some aspects of an HSA as a retirement vehicle that you are not aware of, or could use a reminder.  The HSA is a very powerful tool with great tax benefits. Today I get into it with Jonathan Gawrych who you may remember from previous episodes. The HSA is one of the first things you can do to start building retirement wealth if you are not already doing it. If you do not have the option with your current health insurance plan, it is something to consider moving forward, especially if your company is setup to also contribute to your HSA if you have one. I hope you enjoy this episode!

34: Learning How to Budget - Erik Donohoo
34: Learning How to Budget - Erik Donohoo
Does the skill of budgeting feel like something that has eluded you? Do you put it down on paper and it looks so good, but then at the end of the month your actual spending looks nothing like your plan? When it comes down to it, it is hard to say no to things we want, especially if we don't have enough confidence in our ability to stick to our budget in the first place. Having a realistic budget and sticking to it is possibly the most important first step to building wealth and executing our plans for building wealth. Today I speak with Erik Donohoo about budgeting and specifically using the " You Need a Budget" or "YNAB" app for budgeting. This is just one powerful tool we both love for budgeting but is of course not the only way to go. The important thing is to come up with a budget and sticking to it, and not beating yourself up when you don't. Feeling like a failure and not pivoting when we make financial mistakes doesn't get us closer to where we want to be either. I hope you enjoy!

33: QuickDive - Are You an Investing Insider?
Do you feel like investing and building wealth is only for the brightest and most elite? I used to feel that way too. We do not have to feel like we are on the outside of an arena where only the professionals can play the game. With a little information and direction, we can find public arenas/courts/fields to play the game. It still takes work and your skills will improve with time, but you need to get on the court and start playing ASAP!

32: Starting Something New - Cary Judd
Have you ever felt like life is falling apart all around you? Sometimes we can have a string of "bad luck", and how we react really makes all the difference in the world.  Today's guest Cary Judd had a much worse 2020 than most (and that is saying a lot considering the global circumstances in 2020), and the way he processed his grief was to start something new. He took on a new challenge that starting opening doors he didn't even realize existed before. He is now about to leave for Iceland where he will ride an electric skateboard over 800 miles! Yes, you read that right! Soon you will be able to watch a documentary chronicling this journey. You will have to watch to learn more, but trust me, it's worth it!   You can learn more about the documentary here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ax6TYxHS1_U  and on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/caryjudd/  Click this link to support the Podcast! https://anchor.fm/nobettertime/support  Find where you can subscribe by visiting www.nobettertimepodcast.com  Logo created by Rufus Man (https://www.facebook.com/rufusman101) creator of Yonder Comics (https://www.patreon.com/yondercomics) Intro song: Cooking & Food Background Music | ITALIA by Alex-Productions | https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCx0_M61F81Nfb-BRXE-SeVA Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/deed.en_US Outro song: Above The Clouds by | e s c p | https://escp-music.bandcamp.com Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/deed.en_US Other music: Ambivert by | e s c p | https://escp-music.bandcamp.com Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ Lucid Dreaming by | e s c p | https://escp-music.bandcamp.com Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/

31: QuickDive - Update on My Investing Strategy
31: QuickDive - Update on My Investing Strategy
I have been reading a really excellent book call "The Simple Path the Wealth" by J L Collins (https://amzn.to/2U1y8S0). And it really has gotten my wheels turning on how I could better approach my investing journey.  I have been using Betterment as a way to invest in various funds, but I've realized that the Vanguard VTSAX - Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund (https://bit.ly/3qjhWaJ), is a really great fund that encompassed about 3,700 US businesses that is self-cleansing by removing the failed companies in the stock market from the fund over time. It has a great history of good performance that is low maintenance from an investor's perspective and has low fees (0.04% which is quite low as I understand it). I talk about why I have decided to move my money from Betterment into Vanguard, and why I am done playing the individual stock game via Robinhood (mostly done at least lol). Check it out and let me know what you think! I would love to hear feedback on what you do or do not agree with from my conclusions and on my new strategy moving forward.  I also get into my plans to start moving a bit into staking with crypto. Still very fresh and new to this whole idea too, so that will be interesting and fun to explore and discover. I of course am not a financial advisor and am simply on a path of learning and wealth building. Let's do it together!

29: QuickDive - The Power of Positive Thinking
I'm at a family reunion for the week and I learned some valuable life lessons while playing a game of "horse" with my 13-year-old nephew. If we tell ourselves we can't do something, the chances of failure increases. If we tell ourselves we CAN do something, the chances of success certainly increase as well. There is no formula for guaranteed success in everything we do, but we can move forward with confidence and personal belief knowing that is going to make a big difference. We are not wholly defined by our successes or failures, but by the way we consistently approach life.

28: Our Time is a Powerful Asset - Joseph Kane
It could be argued that time is our most valuable asset. Some might consider money their most valuable asset, but good luck coming up with new ways to make money if you don't put in the time to learn financial and business principles and skills. Good luck create passive income if you don't take the time to learn new skills and brainstorm new ideas to pursue. Spending all our time making other people money will not take us as far as we truly could go either. If we don't put in the necessary time to grow and foster meaningful relationships with family and friends, then how can we truly appreciate and enjoy any wealth we do end up acquiring?   If time is so valuable, why do we find ourselves wasting it or not doing the things we value the most? Today my guest Joesph Kane discusses this with me. It was a great conversation, and I'm so excited to share it with you!   Click this link to support the Podcast! https://anchor.fm/nobettertime/support  Find where you can subscribe by visiting www.nobettertimepodcast.com  Logo created by Rufus Man (https://www.facebook.com/rufusman101) creator of Yonder Comics (https://www.patreon.com/yondercomics) Intro song: Cooking & Food Background Music | ITALIA by Alex-Productions | https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCx0_M61F81Nfb-BRXE-SeVA Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/deed.en_US Outro song: Above The Clouds by | e s c p | https://escp-music.bandcamp.com Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/deed.en_US Other music: Ambivert by | e s c p | https://escp-music.bandcamp.com Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ Lucid Dreaming by | e s c p | https://escp-music.bandcamp.com Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/

27: QuickDive - Recognizing Universal Patterns and Truths
There are universal truths all around us. As we start to engage with the people and world around us, we start to recognize patterns, we connect the dots and we start to better understand how things work. We look for and put positivity and success out into the world, and it comes back to us. We help another person, and suddenly we find others helping us in the ways we need. Today I get into some specific examples of seeing this in my life. Hope you enjoy it!

26: It's Okay to Make Mistakes - Brian Schermerhorn
This was a great conversation I had with Brian Schermerhorn, a software engineer with better.com! We talk about the value of having (and being) a mentor. What does it take to learn new things, and how to know what advice to follow or ignore? How and when to give constructive criticism and feedback?   Something that really stood out to me in this conversation is how important it is to allow ourselves and others to make mistakes. If those opportunities are not afforded, then a huge amount of learning and growth is bypassed. It's so important to be willing to fail and "fail quickly"! There is a lot of talk of software engineering in this episode, but don't let that stop you from listening, because we are able to draw lessons that will apply to anyone on how to better learn and teach others, and how to be bold and take big risks that really pay off.

25: What Makes us Change? - Todd Bauerle
What makes us change? How do we take control of our life? My guest today is Todd Bauerle life/career coach and owner of Bauerle Consulting (bauerleconsulting.com)! One thing that certainly stops us from changing is fear. You can choose right now to go after a specific goal, or you can wait until life is so painful that you have no other choice but to push past the fear and change. Ultimately, it doesn't matter which comes first. What matters is you get going towards that more abundant future! Todd shares his story of some real life-altering things that happened that opened his eyes and acted as a catalyst for serious and bold changes that have paid off in a big way for him. He has made more in certain months this year than he did in multiple years combined before he started his consulting business. There is nothing stopping me, you, or anyone from experiencing similar or even greater results! Todd is very active on TikTok (@toddlbauerle and had a lot of great inspirational content there you can follow to know more about what he is about and how he is changing people's lives and careers.

23: QuickDive - The Abundance Around Us
Some more updates on outsourcing my photo editing in the effort to make my photography business more passive. In the process of learning about this and reaching out for help, I have realized how generous people can be with information and help. This is a great example of abundance. If we feel scarcity we might feel that helping others may give them an advantage that takes away from your own opportunities. The truth is there is more than enough to go around! I learned this when someone that could be considered my competition for real estate photography in my area went out of his way to reach out to me and help me improve my business. I discuss that experience in this episode where Ron Aguilar from Utah Valley Videos (UtahValleyVideos.com) helped me greatly and proactively called me and took time to allow me to pick his brain and further improve my process. I also had someone from my neighborhood reach out to me - Jason Baller co-host of the "Sprinkled with Hope" podcast (podpage.com/sprinkled-with-hope/) to give me positive feedback and encouragement on my own podcast and send some great guest options my way! Abundance is all around us people!    The episode of Sprinkled with Hope that I reference can be found here:  92 - Marissa Pei   https://www.podpage.com/sprinkled-with-hope/92-love-with-marissa-pei/  The episode of Armchair Expert I reference can be found here:  Jonathan Tucker EP326   https://armchairexpertpod.com/pods/jonathan-tucker  Click this link to support the Podcast! https://anchor.fm/nobettertime/support Find where you can subscribe by visiting www.nobettertimepodcast.com  Logo created by Rufus Man (https://www.facebook.com/rufusman101) creator of Yonder Comics (https://www.patreon.com/yondercomics) Intro song: Cooking & Food Background Music | ITALIA by Alex-Productions | https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCx0_M61F81Nfb-BRXE-SeVA Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/deed.en_US Outro song: Above The Clouds by | e s c p | https://escp-music.bandcamp.com Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/deed.en_US Other music: Ambivert by | e s c p | https://escp-music.bandcamp.com Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ Lucid Dreaming by | e s c p | https://escp-music.bandcamp.com Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/

My brother Matt returns to further discuss the concept of passive income. I also have some very specific updates on how I was able to make my photography business more passive in a way that will free up literally hours of my time per shoot, and essentially doubling what I make for each hour I put towards my photoshoots. You may ask, "how does that math even work?". Listen and find out!

Today I share a conversation I had with my 8-year-old last night. At bedtime he starting telling me about something he learned on an educational show at Netflix that day, and I had to pull out my phone and record his excitement. I like to do that sometimes, and shortly into the recording I realized this was universal information that I could share with you! "Everybody is strong. Nobody is weak" look for that and other gems coming from the uncorrupted and unfiltered mind of a child.

Nothing is worse than when someone wants to rain on your parade! If you are excited about something or have big plans and someone chimes in only to dash your hopes with nothing constructive to add, they have just yucked your yum! We don't want to do that to others either. Don't get me wrong, we need to be open to constructive criticism and opposing ideas while we make plans around our finances and retirement, but it's important to be able to discern the difference between the two.

11: Should You Put More Than 20% Down on A House?
Here's another conversation with my brilliant and close friend Jonathan! You may remember him from the second episode of this podcast. This time should be more listenable with much better audio and fewer distractions. I always assumed you should put down as much as possible on a house even if it goes way beyond 20%. Jonathan and I have a conversation that makes me take a second look at that assumption.

One way to make progress on your financial goals is to have a side gig, or side hustle as some people call it. I have been doing real estate photography on the side for over 4 years now, but the question is how do you scale it and turn it into something that does not eat up all your personal time? I'm also calling out my cousin Samson to be on my podcast and share his story! Intro song: Cooking & Food Background Music | ITALIA by Alex-Productions.

4: Update on revamping my budget around saving and investing FIRST
Until now the idea of investing and saving for the future was an after thought. And that’s putting it generously since it hasn’t really been happening until very recently. My new approach is to put money aside towards those things first and then building the rest of the budget around that from highest priority to lowest. This means some things will need to be sacrificed for now in the name of a bigger and better goal.
