Recapping June & July Goals
S A U N A I E Presents July Goals & Plans Q U O T E S: Always Concentrate on How Far You've Come  2nd: Respond Intelligently Even to Unintelligent Treatment.  S E G M E N T S: How was June for SAUNAIE & July Goals How would I rate June? June overall was a roller coaster month for the podcast, I grade it a C- because I was undisciplined & fell off & that happens when you're constantly focused on staying Relevant & I eventually Grinded Myself out & I'm learning that I need a team to help me. So this month I've been looking for some teammates to take the load off. For anyone out there starting a Business or Currently Running a Business solo start looking to offload tasks to others so that you can put your focus elsewhere. As extremely driven people we think that people would do a good job like us but you have to ask yourself what's more important your Health or Someone fucking up a minor job. June we released 5 episodes & I'm grateful for each episode, I'm between which episode is my favorite because both episodes hit my heart those episodes are "Mental Recharge & Childhood Trauma"  - Childhood Trauma is big to me because I believe that's where who we are stimulates from, Childhood plays a HUGE role in Adulthood, how we were raised, the environments we're raised in, our relationships with our parents & more define who we are today.  https://anchor.fm/saunaie/episodes/Mental-Recharge--Childhood-Trauma-e1jcvei - The other episode was "Men's Mental Health" this episode I loved because I learned so much about Men's Mental Health & the Statistics were MIND BLOWING, As a Man we hardly open up about how we feel & what we feel & I believe we all need an outlet or venting vessel to relieve that Mental Impact because it's a Heavy Weight To carry. If you haven't heard this informative episode check it out.  https://anchor.fm/saunaie/episodes/Mens-Mental-Health-e1jmbr3 S E G M E N T #2: July Goals  1. Start doing Visual episodes 2. More Affiliate Marketing  3. Build A Community & Get to know y'all more  4. E-Book & Courses  When it comes to Goals or Tasks it's about not Overwhelming yourself with what's on your plate, as humans & the era we're in we like to load our plate & sometimes our Eyes are Bigger than Our Mind, We want to do so much in a short time window instead of analyzing our goals & giving them logical time tables. You got this don't overdue it just stay consistent. H o u s e k e e p i n g  What are your July Goals? How can I help? How was June for you?  Let us know on SAUNAIE.COM

Debt Don't Live Here Anymore
S A U N A I E Presents D E B T DON'T LiVE HERE ANYMORE Quotes: Wake Up With Determination & Go to Sleep with Satisfaction. 2nd: Regret is the thing we should fear most. Failure is an Answer. Rejection is an Answer. Regret is an Eternal Question you will never have the answer to.  S E G M E N T S: DEBT DON'T LiVE HERE ANYMORE & 8 Tips - Americans are BURiED in Debt from Mortgages, Credit Cards, Personal Loans, Bills, and Student Loans, and the amount owed in total is on the rise.  - In 2020, Experian reported that the average American owes approximately $92,727 in Total Debt—that's highest amount on record in the U.S.  - Members of Generation X owes about $140,643, followed by Baby Boomers ($97,290) and Millennials ($87,448).  Financial experts often recommend two ways to tackle debt.  - The "Avalanche" method and the "Snowball" method.  - An Avalanche approach means you Pay Off your Loans or Credit Cards with the Highest interest Rates First. You throw as much money as you can at them, and pay only the minimum on all your other loans.  - The Snowball approach has you Tackle the Lowest Amount of Debt First, Pay it Off, and then Tackle the Next Loan. 2ND SEGMENT: Tips On Eliminating Debt 1. F A C E F A C T S - If you've been trying to make bills vanish by throwing them away unopened, then the 1st step is Accountability. You knew what you signed up for, this isn't your 1st rodeo or maybe it is but avoiding your bills won't make them go away.  - Clear off your Desk or kitchen table and get out all your Loan Statements, Bills, & Budget—basically everything you can think of that relates to your Finances. Start Adding. 2. R E P A Y M E N T - Not all Debts are Created Equal. When making Your Plan, You'll need to Establish a Hierarchy among Your Debts & make a Plan Of Attack. Experts say to Target the High-interest Debt 1st; Non-Deductible, Low-interest Debt Next; and Tax-Deductible Debt Last. 3. Get The Damage Report - Check your credit Score and review your credit report for inaccuracies or patterns of bad behavior. You can get your credit rating the same way lenders, and landlords do—from each of the three credit bureaus - Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion. 4. Gaining Control  - Get rid of Troublesome Accounts and Pay Down your overall debt on time. Use Automatic Payments & Tighten Up your Budget to get your debt under control.  This will keep your credit rating from getting worse and, over time, will improve it.  5. Doubling Down - Whenever possible, Double Up the payments on your highest-interest debt. Although it's not quite as efficient as consolidating, Doubling Up on payments can speed up the payback period. Once you've eliminated the highest-interest debt, double up payments on the next-highest debt. This strategy is called a Debt Avalanche.

What The Debt?
S A U N A I E Presents What The Debt QUOTES: The Limit isn't the Sky. The Limit is the Mind.  2nd: If you don't Value Your Time, Neither Will Others. Stop Giving Away your Time & Talents - Start Charging for it. S E G M E N T S: What is Debt? Understanding Debt! Different Types of Debt What is D E B T? & Understanding Debt - Debt is usually money, borrowed by one party from another. Debt is used by many corporations and individuals to make large purchases that they couldn't afford under normal circumstances. ( Investopedia Definition ) - Debt is an obligation that requires one party, the debtor, to pay money or other agreed-upon value to another party, the creditor. Debt is a deferred payment, or series of payments, which differentiates it from an immediate purchase. ( Wikipedia Definiton ) - The most common forms of debt are loans, mortgages, auto loans, personal loans, and credit card debt. Under the terms of a loan, the borrower is required to repay the balance of the loan by a certain date, typically several years in the future.  2. T Y P E S OF D E B T - There are four main categories of debt. Most debt can be classified as either Secured debt, Unsecured debt, Revolving debt, or a Mortgage. 1. S E C U R E D D E B T is collateralized debt. Debtees usually require the collateral to be property or assets with a large enough value to cover the amount of the debt. Examples of collateral include cars, houses, boats, securities, and investments. These items are pledged as security and the agreement is created with a lien.  2. U N S E C U R E D D E B T is debt that does not require collateral as security. The creditworthiness and the debtor's ability to repay are reviewed before consideration. Since no collateral is issued, the debtor's credit profile is the primary factor used in determining their Approval.  3. R E V O L V I N G D E B T is a line of credit or an amount that a borrower can continuously borrow from. In other words, the borrower may use funds up to a certain amount, pay it back, and borrow up to that amount again.  4. M O R T G A G E S  is a debt issued to purchase real estate, such as a house or condo. It is a form of secured debt as the subject real estate is used as collateral against the loan.

Do You Know How To Budget?
S A U N A I E Presents the 50 30 20 RULE HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR HOST XO Quotes: Look Back At How Far You've Come.  2nd: If You Live to Please Others, Everyone will Love You Except Yourself.  S E G M E N T S: 50 30 20 RULE  Fun Fact: Senator Elizabeth Warren popularized the so-called "50/20/30 budget rule" (sometimes labeled "50-30-20") in her book, All Your Worth: The Ultimate Lifetime Money Plan. The basic rule is to divide up after-tax income and allocate it to spend: 50% on needs, 30% on wants, and putting away 20% for savings. Referencing over 20 years of research, Warren and Tyagi conclude that you don’t need a complicated budget to get your finances in check. All you need to do is balance your money across your needs, wants and savings goals by using the 50/30/20 rule. 50%: Needs Needs are those bills that you absolutely must pay and are the things necessary for survival. These include rent or mortgage payments, car payments, groceries, insurance, health care, minimum debt payment, and utilities. These are your "must-haves." The "needs" category does not include items that are extras, such as HBO, Netflix, Starbucks, and dining out. 30% ON WANTS Wants are all the things you spend money on that are not absolutely essential. This includes dinner, going to the movies, that new handbag, tickets to sporting events, vacations, the latest electronics, and ultra-high-speed Internet. Anything in the "wants" bucket is optional if you boil it down. You can work out at home instead of going to the gym, cook instead of eating out, or watch sports on TV instead of getting tickets to the game. 20%: Savings Finally, try to allocate 20% of your net income to savings and investments. This includes adding money to an emergency fund in a bank savings account, making IRA contributions to a mutual fund account, and investing in the stock market. You should have at least three months of emergency savings on hand in case you lose your job or an unforeseen event occurs. After that, focus on retirement and meeting other financial goals down the road.  H O U S E K E E P I N G Leave a Review on SAUNAIE.COM Follow us on Social Media - > @SAUNAIE SUBSCRIBE SUBSCRIBE SUBSCRIBE

5 Keys To Financial Literacy
5 KEYS of Financial Literacy  Q U O T E S: "If you don't get out of the box you've been raised in, you won't understand how much bigger the world is." 2nd: Loyalty is Everything, but Everything isn't Loyal. 5 K E Y S of F i n a n c i a l L i t e r a c y 1. E A R N: Before you can start Spending, Saving, and investing, you need to know how much money you make. If you make the same amount each month, this part is pretty easy. Take a good look at your paycheck to identify your gross and net income, and note any other deductions, such as employer-sponsored health insurance or a retirement plan.  2. S P E N D: Creating A Personal Budget  A Personal Budget is just a plan for how you want to spend your money, but it’s also the most useful tool for achieving your Financial Goals. To create a Monthly Personal Budget, you’ll need to track your spending over the course of 1 month, and then break everything down into categories. as in the popular 50/30/20 budgeting rule. 3. S A V E: Determining Your Financial Goals Everyone knows it’s important to save money, but it’s hard to spend less than you earn without specific financial goals to work towards. Your financial goals will depend on your unique situation. 4. B O R R O W: Credit Cards, Loans & Credit Score Even if you’re a Diligent Saver, at some point you may have to borrow money to cover a large expense like a home or car. Maybe you borrowed money as a college student and are currently dealing with student loans or credit card debt.  5. P R O T E C T: Preventing Fraud & Buying Insurance Once you’ve set yourself up with a solid budget and investment strategy, it’s important to protect the money that you’ve made. This means regularly reviewing your bank accounts and credit card statements for mistakes or suspicious activity; keeping documents and passwords secure to prevent scams and identity theft; and buying the right kind of insurance to protect yourself in the event of an emergency.  Check out the website - > www.SAUNAIE.com Follow us on social media @SAUNAIE Outro: Karma has no Menu.

Bank Accounts & Emergency Funds
Q U O T E S: The answer will come to you if you have unwavering Faith 2nd: I've come to believe that all my past failure & frustration were actually laying the foundation for the understandings that have created the new level of living I now enjoy.  T O P I C S: Personal Finance & Bank Accounts, & Emergency Funds Personal Finance: is where financial literacy translates into individual financial decision-making. How do you manage your money? Which savings and investment vehicles are you using? Personal finance is about making and meeting your financial goals—whether owning a home, helping other members of your family, saving for your children’s college education, supporting causes that you care about, planning for retirement, or anything else. Among other topics, it encompasses banking, budgeting, handling debt and credit, and investing.  Bank accounts are typically the first financial account that you’ll open and are necessary for major purchases and life events.  An Emergency Fund is not a specific type of bank account but can be any source of cash that you’ve saved to help you handle financial hardships like job losses, medical bills, or car repairs.  Where do I put my Emergency Fund? - A Savings Account with a high interest rate and easy access. Because an emergency can strike at any time, having quick access is crucial. So it shouldn’t be tied up in a long-term investment fund. But the account should be separate from the bank account you use daily, so you’re not tempted to dip into your reserves. - A High-Yield Savings Account is a good place for your money. It is federally insured up to $250,000 per depositor, so it’s safe. The money earns interest, and you can access your cash quickly when needed, whether through withdrawal or a funds transfer.

What Are Happy Hormones?
Q U O T E S: You started this Journey for a reason, Never forget it.  2nd: You can't change the past, you can only make decisons today to help how your future turns out.  S E G M E N T S: What Are Happy Hormones & How To Hack Them, March Recap & April Goals H a p p y H o r m o n e s  1. Dopamine. AKA the “feel-good” hormone, is a hormone and neurotransmitter that’s an important part of your brain’s reward system. Dopamine is associated with pleasurable sensations, This could be eating a great meal, listening to inspiring music, getting a massage, or completing a workout. The release of dopamine gives feelings of well-being and motivates you to seek things you enjoy and do well, along with learning, & memory, motor system function. We know Dopamine is a triggered when you do something well.  Make sure you regularly incorporate things you enjoy and do well, into your life. 2. Serotonin. This hormone (and neurotransmitter) helps regulate your mood as well as your sleep, appetite, digestion, learning ability, and memory. Additionally, it helps decrease our worries and concerns.  Serotonin is naturally triggered by regular things we can do each day – going for a walk in the sunshine, getting a good night’s sleep, spending time in nature or self-care activities that reduce stress levels.  3. Oxytocin. Often called the “love hormone,” oxytocin is essential for childbirth, breastfeeding, and strong parent-child bonding. This hormone can also help promote trust, empathy, and bonding in relationships, and oxytocin levels generally increase with physical affection like kissing, cuddling, and sex.  4. Endorphins. Endorphins are your body’s natural pain reliever, which your body produces in response to stress or discomfort. Endorphin levels also tend to increase when you engage in reward-producing activities, such as eating, working out, or having sex. 2ND SEGMENT M E N T A L H E A L T H H A C K S 1. Exercise has multiple physical health benefits. It can also have a positive impact on emotional well-being. If you’ve heard of a “runner’s high,” you might already know about the link between exercise and endorphin release. 2. L A U G H  Of course, laughter won’t treat ongoing health issues. But it can help relieve feelings of anxiety or stress, and improve a low mood by boosting dopamine and endorphin levels. 3. C O O K (and enjoy) a favorite meal with a loved one This tip could — in theory — boost all 4 of your happy hormones. The enjoyment you get from eating something delicious can trigger the release of dopamine along with endorphins. Sharing the meal with someone you love, and bonding over meal preparation, can boost oxytocin levels. 4. L i S T E N to M u s i c Music can give more than one of your happy hormones a boost. 5. M E D i T A T E If you’re familiar with meditation, you might already know of its many wellness benefits — from improving sleep to reducing stress.

Improving Your Mental Health
Q U O T E S: I am becoming Better With each day 2nd: Don't let your happiness fall victim to your overthinking.  S E G M E N T: Ways to improve Your Mental Health We've discussed What's Mental Health?, Myths & Facts About Mental Health, What Factors Affect Your Mental Health, & our most recent episode we covered The Different Mental Disorders, and with this episode we'll be covering "Ways Improve Your Mental Health"  1. Make Social Connection A Priority - Face to Face is key when making a social connection. Phone calls and social networks have their place, but few things can beat the mood-boosting power of quality face-to-face time with other people. Strong family ties and supportive friends can help you deal with the stresses of life. Friends and family can make you feel included and cared for. They can offer different views from whatever’s going on inside your own head. They can help keep you active, keep you grounded and help you solve practical problems. In-person social interaction with someone who cares is one of the most effective ways to calm your nervous system and relieve stress. 2. Exercise  - Staying active is as good for the brain as it is for the body. Regular exercise or activity can have a major impact on your mental and emotional health, relieve stress, improve memory, and help you sleep better.  Exercise also keeps your other vital organs healthy. Experts say most people should do about 30 minutes’ exercise at least five days a week. Exercising doesn’t just mean doing sport or going to the gym. Walks in the park, gardening or housework can also keep you active. 3. Diet  - There are strong links between what we eat and how we feel, for example, caffeine and sugar can have an immediate effect. But food can also have a long-lasting effect on your mental health. Your brain needs a mix of nutrients to stay healthy and function well, just like the other organs in your body. A healthy balanced diet includes: lots of different types of fruits and vegetables wholegrain cereals or bread nuts and seeds oily fish plenty of water. Foods that can support your mood include fatty fish rich in omega-3s, nuts (walnuts, almonds, cashews and peanuts), avocados, beans, leafy greens (spinach, kale and Brussels sprouts), and fresh fruit such as blueberries. Eat at least three meals each day and drink plenty of water. Try to limit how many high-caffeine or sugary drinks you have, and avoid too much alcohol. 4. S L E E P - One way to get sleep better is to take a break from the stimulation of screens — TV,  phones, tablets or computers — in the two hours before bedtime. I'm sure you heard that 8 hours of sleep a night is key but 6-8 hours is more realistic so that you can have that mental balance. I've been neglecting my sleep and this week I took a nap and it energized me mentally. 5. Find Your Purpose & Meaning - This is different for everyone. You might try one of the following: Engage in work that makes you feel useful Invest in relationships and spend quality time with people who matter to you Volunteer, which can help enrich your life and make you happier   Care for others, which can be as rewarding and meaningful as it is challenging  H o u s e k e e p i n g  i t e m s Review Subscribe Share  Follow us on social media @SAUNAIE www.SAUNAiE.com

Mental Health 103
QUOTES: What May Be Hard Now Will Make You Stronger in the Long Run. 2nd: Just For Today, Focus On Everything You Have To Gain instead of Everything You Have To Give Up. It Can Only Get Better From Here. Mental health problems can have a wide range of causes. It's likely that for many people there is a complicated combination of factors – although different people may be more deeply affected by certain things than others. For example, the following factors could potentially result in a period of poor mental health: - childhood abuse, trauma, or neglect - social isolation or loneliness - experiencing discrimination and stigma, including racism - social disadvantage, poverty or debt - bereavement (losing someone close to you) - severe or long-term stress - having a long-term physical health condition - unemployment or losing your job - homelessness or poor housing - being a long-term carer for someone - drug and alcohol misuse - domestic violence, bullying or other abuse as an adult - significant trauma as an adult, such as military combat, being involved in a serious incident in which you feared for your life, or being the victim of a violent crime - physical causes – for example, a head injury or a neurological condition such as epilepsy can have an impact on your behavior and mood. (It's important to rule out potential physical causes before seeking further treatment for a mental health problem).

MYTHS & FACTS ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH
Quotes: If you're afraid to do something in a social setting, it's because you are more invested in someone else's opinion of you than you are of your own opinion. 2nd: If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan, and guess what they have planned for you? Not Much SEGMENTS: Myths & Facts About Mental Health  MENTAL H E A L T H AFFECTS EVERYONE  Myth: Mental health problems don't affect me. Fact: Mental health problems are actually very common. In 2020, about: One in five American adults experienced a mental health issue One in 6 young people experienced a major depressive episode One in 20 Americans lived with a serious mental illness, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or major depression Suicide is a leading cause of death in the United States. In fact, it was the 2nd leading cause of death for people ages 10-24. It accounted for the loss of more than 45,979 American lives in 2020, nearly double the number of lives lost to homicide.  Myth: Children don't experience mental health problems. Fact: Even very young children may show early warning signs of mental health concerns. These mental health problems are often clinically diagnosable, and can be a product of the interaction of biological, psychological, and social factors. Half of all mental health disorders show first signs before a person turns 14 years old, and three-quarters of mental health disorders begin before age 24. Unfortunately, only half of children and adolescents with diagnosable mental health problems receive the treatment they need. Early mental health support can help a child before problems interfere with other developmental needs. Myth: People with mental health problems are violent and unpredictable. Fact: The vast majority of people with mental health problems are no more likely to be violent than anyone else. Most people with mental illness are not violent and only 3%–5% of violent acts can be attributed to individuals living with a serious mental illness. In fact, people with severe mental illnesses are over 10 times more likely to be victims of violent crime than the general population. You probably know someone with a mental health problem and don't even realize it, because many people with mental health problems are highly active and productive members of our communities. Myth: People with mental health needs, even those who are managing their mental illness, cannot tolerate the stress of holding down a job. Fact: People with mental health problems are just as productive as other employees. Employers who hire people with mental health problems report good attendance and punctuality as well as motivation, good work, and job tenure on par with or greater than other employees. When employees with mental health problems receive effective treatment, it can result in: Lower total medical costs Increased productivity Lower absenteeism Decreased disability cost

Initially building his following on Yelp with funny, profanity-laced reviews, he transitioned to Instagram in 2017 and hasn’t looked back with over 140K followers and counting. Originally hailing from Boston, MA, Phil’s love for all things food started early being raised by Taiwanese parents and his mom’s extraordinary cooking. He then spent 10 years in New York City broadening his taste bud horizons with a spectrum of culinary experiences, which he took to another level by moving to Japan and traveling around Asia for two years. It was not until his first job in Vegas, which was a swing shift gig, that he started covering late-night dinner spots and subsequently caught the writing bug. He currently runs a social media marketing and consulting company aptly named LasVegasFill boasting a roster of well-known eateries in the city, works as a photographer using only his phone, and as a freelance writer.

What Would You Do To Become Successful?
1st Quote: Don't allow someone to make you feel like you aren't good enough. 2nd Quote: A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, & outcomes. It is a catalyst, and it sparks extraordinary results. Segments: Reasons why people don't Succeed in life, & Time Management Tips Segment #1: The Unsuccessful Ones 1. Execution: they have a Master Plan but don't execute it. 2. Consistency: Consistent execution is part of the game. Many people execute, but not many people stay consistent with it. Succeeding in life requires a lot of skin in the game. 3. Afraid of Failing: Failure is a part of your life's foundation because it teaches you stuff you wouldn't learn otherwise. Make Mistakes and learn from them. These are the lessons you won't forget.  4.Blurry Vision: Not having a clear vision is one of the most significant reasons many people fail. Having a clear vision makes you realize what is of greatest value to you in life and what type of life is worth pursuing.  5. Lack of Faith: Everything takes time. Just because something is not coming to fruition doesn't mean that it's not worth pursuing. Have Faith. Zoom in For Progress. Zoom Out for Purpose. Segment #2: Time Management 1. Stop Multi-tasking 2. Set Deadlines 3. Prioritize Tasks 4. Remove Distractions 5. Work when Most Productive 6.Set Reminders 7. Task Batching 8. Create A Routine 9.

Are You Growing Or Settling?
SEASON 5 EPISODE 34: GROWING OR SETTLING On this episode of SAUNAIE it's Mental Health Monday & We're discussing Are We Growing or Settling? It's been a question we all ask ourselves overtime when we know we've come complacent or haven't seen the growth that we wanted to see. So with this episode we detail what Growth Entails, The Book "Atomic Habits" & Mental Health Statistics. We first kick off the show with 2 Quotes of the Day, the 1st Quote is about "Being Mindful of your Thoughts because they affect your outer world" and our host XO elaborates on this quote. The 2nd quote is about "Being kind to yourself at all times and details the feelings that come from being your own bully." Segment 1: Book of The Month: Atomic Habits by James Clear  in this segment XO discusses what he learned from chapters 1 through 5 of "Atomic Habits" from Habits being the compound interest of self-improvement, Getting 1% better daily is beneficial in the long run, The Most Effective Way to change your habits is to focus on who you want to become.  XO goes into full detail about chapter and how this has been one of his favorite books this as well as how the book has effected his daily habits/behavior  2nd Segment: Growth Entails Have you been Growing or Settling? Complacent or Making progress?  Lately I've been complacent in some areas of life and growing in others. Life gets overwhelming sometimes and tries to test you to see if you're ready to grow into your next blessing. I've faced this challenge periodically throughout life and every time I grow.  This is what Growth looks like Creating and Establishing your Alone Time, being alone allows you to see things clearly, you get time to analyze and reflect on where you are and where you want to go. Another step of Growth is Changing or Losing Relationships we always want to keep people in our lives longer than they should, we never spend the time to analyze their if the relationship is a healthy one or toxic one until it's too late. A huge Growth step is Asking yourself the Hard Questions like "Have I Grown?" "Am I being Complacent?" "Who do I want to be?" You have to be honest with yourself when asking and answering these questions. We go into depths with this segment on Growth.  3rd Segment: Mental Health Statistics ( done by the National Alliance of Mental Health ) 1 in 5 U.S. adults experience Mental illness each year 1 in 6 U.S. youth aged 6-17 experience a Mental Health Disorder yearly Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among people aged 10-34 Ending this episode with Mental Health Statistics helps put our Mental Health into perspective and opens our eyes to help our community and family.  If you or anyone you know is dealing with any Mental illness, please reach out for help or reach out to us and we'll help anyway that we can.

The People we didn't touch." In life we all have plans that hold us back because we doubt ourselves but in the end we'll regret not taking that leap of faith. Making Excuses & Procrastinating is what we do as humans but we need to start holding ourselves accountable and accept ourselves for who we are. So whatever is holding you back from taking that leap, Don't Let it Have Power Over Your Future. 2nd Quote: "Respond Intelligently Even To Unintelligent Treatment" Has someone ever offended you, what about belittle you, or even try to degrade you. I bet you most likely responded in an unintelligent way NO WORRIES we've all done it before and some of us still do it. But how about we change how we respond and start to be unresponsive when it comes to unintelligent treatment.

What I Learned This Week
SEASON 5 EPISODE 24 in this episode of SAUNAiE our host XO talks about what he learned this week and a few of his Netflix Recommendations... but first we kick off the show discussing 2 quotes of the day, the 1st quote discusses "Surrounding Yourself With Positive People and you'll be a Positive Person," be weary of the company you keep because they'll lift you up or bring you down. If you've been having negative energy or always get negative vibes around certain people then this may be the reason. The Second Quote is about "Looking at your present lifestyle you're constructing is it looking like how you want your future to look." Whatever you want your future to look like you have to start planning and visualizing where you want to be in 5 years, once you know where you want to be start working towards that vision.  What I Learned This Week "The Everything Store" by Brad Stone (The Birth of Amazon) This book is very insightful reading the 1st 4 chapters XO received a lot of Gems from these chapters and their centered around having Faith in your vision, faith in yourself, & faith in your future. No matter who judges you, or doubts your dream/vision stay persistent. Amazon first started with books as soon as they dominated that niche they moved into another niche and dominated that niche and expanded into other fields. These 4 chapters resonated with Us & Supported the Vision we have for S A U N A I E.  "The Psychology of Money" by Morgan Housel. This book details how different upbringings, cultures, life experiences & more shape how we think and feel about money. The 1st chapter titled "No One is Crazy" talks how we're anchored to a set of views How Money Works like What Makes Sense to Me, Might Not Make Sense To You. "A person who grew up in Poverty thinks about Risk & Reward in ways the Wealthy can't even fathom." This 1st chapter details a lot of information about how we operate with money. People's risk depends on their History with money. It also states how Americans spend more on Lottery tickets versus anything else. They're basically paying for a dream that the wealthy already live.  Chapter 2 "Luck & Risk" in this chapter it talks about how Bill Gates was lucky to be able to attend his high school, the only high school during his time to have a computer. If his school didn't get a computer there wouldn't be a Microsoft. This chapter emphasizes about Luck & Risk how they're similar and how every outcome in life is guided by forces other than individual effort. Another key note that XO found was "We're All Trying To Figure Out What works when it comes to Money. What investment strategies Work, which ones don't. How do you get Rich, How Do You Avoid being Poor." This chapter opens your eyes about how Luck & Risk really work.      2. Netflix Picks Who Killed Sara? ( Mystery-Tv Show ) Bingeworthy!!!

Debt & Friendships

We just published a poll asking you all what you guys want more of on our Patreon page, to vote check out www.Patreon.com/SAUNAIE Now we jump into the show starting off with the Quotes of the Day, 1st quote is about Change and how we want change to happen fast and we want change to be easy, but nothing in life worth having is easy. The 2nd quote is about Relationships and how we're supposed to learn from each relationship that we have. Relationships are supposed to teach us not take away from us.  Strategies To Pay Off Debt DEBT SNOWBALL: List all of your debts from smallest to largest  Make minimum payments on everything then Pay extra on your Smallest debt. When done repeat the process.  Small Wins are Psychologically a good option. DEBT AVALANCHE: This strategy involves listing all of your debts from highest to lowest interest rate. Make the minimum payments on everything then pay extra on the highest debt 1st. After this debt is paid move on to the next highest interest rate. Mathematically this is the cheapest option. DEBT FLOOD: Make the minimum payments on everything. Should you get additional funds (Birthday money, Stimulus check, holiday bonuses, etc..) you'd take the amount and evenly allocate the funds to each debt.  This strategy is commonly used .     2. Friendship Green & Red Flags in this segment we discuss Friendships and the Signs of Good Friendships & Bad Friendships. We start off with the Red Flags of Friendships like "They Often Criticize You, They're Only Around When They Need You, They're Jealous and/or Competitive, They make Fun of Your Goals or Interests, They Make You Feel Bad About Who You Are, and a lot more we discuss" Then we jump into the Green Flags of Friendships like "They're Open To Receiving Feedback, They Apologize When They're Wrong, They Communicate How They Feel, They Accept You For Who You Are, They're intentional about Resolving Conflicts, and a lot more."  Then we end off the show reading off the reviews from our audience and recap the show.  I appreciate everyone who's tuned in, reviewed, shared, posted, man the list goes on but We're truly grateful for the Support.  Follow US on any social media platform @SAUNAIE  Check out our website www.SAUNAIE.com VOTE ON OUR POLL ON www.patreon.com/SAUNAIE THANK YOU HAVE A BLESSED WEEK.

What is An Emergency Fund?
SEASON 5 EPISODE 17  in this episode our host XO discusses What is an Emergency Fund?  The show kicks off with 2 insightful Quotes, the first quote is about "Not resisting pain, allow it to be there..." When we are in pain the first thing we want is for the pain to go away but why don't we ever observe or analyze why we're in pain or embrace the pain that we're in. It's just trying to help us grow and teach us something but we don't ever get the chance to learn the lesson until it's over. The 2nd Quote is discusses how we should talk more about what we're passionate about when around our friends & family instead of keeping it inside because we think what we're passionate about isn't worth hearing, but what we're passionate about can lead to a world of opportunities. Now we jump into the Main Topics 1st Topic: What is an Emergency Fund? in this segment XO starts off defining what an Emergency Fund is and Why we need it starting today. It's critical when it comes to Financial Literacy that we build an Emergency Fund and stay disciplined when it comes to investing and saving.

Towards the end of this segment we talk about how much business owners should save. 2nd Topic: Steps to Building An Emergency Fund in this segment XO details Steps to Building An Emergency Fund, the first step being Creating A Budget. Creating a budget starts with you calculating all of your expenses over the past month and seeing where you can save/invest. It's important to know where your money is going so that you can find saving opportunities. Without budgeting we won't be able to maximize our income so we end up living check to check digging ourselves into a hole. When creating a budget you see where you can cut expenses or increase your income. the next step talks about Saving Automatically, using your budget to make your savings automatic by splitting a percentage of your direct deposit into your savings acct. A lot of hidden gems in this segment especially when it comes to Financial Literacy and Building An Emergency Fund. Thank you for reading.

Let’s Talk Financial Literacy
SEASON 5 EPISODE 15 On this episode of SaunaiE Podcast our host XO starts off the show discussing his Quotes of the day, the first quote about Regret, something that we've all dealt with in life, but this quote gives us insight on how to not dwell on Regret but seeing the blessing within it. The next quote is about being too concerned with people's opinions and how being concerned with those opinions keep you in a prison instead of being free. Then we dive into the main topic of the show and of April "Financial Literacy" a subject that needs to be discussed daily within households. XO reveals a few childhood stories about how Financial Literacy played a role.  Topic #1: What is Financial Literacy (05:10) In this segment XO defines what Financial Literacy is from the two definitions he found. 1st definition says it's the ability to understand & apply different financial skills effectively. The 2nd definition says it's the possession of skills & knowledge that allows an individual to make informed & effective decisions. Financial Literacy is rarely discussed in Black Households it's like a foreign language. Growing up XO didn't know anything about finances & it was never discussed in his home, as a matter of fact he didn't learn about it until 2 years ago and he's still learning day by day. Financial Literacy is more than budgeting, it's about personal management, understanding how a checking & saving account works, what using a credit card means & how to avoid debt & the list goes on. A very great segment about What Financial Literacy is.  Topic #2: 5 Trends Making Financial Literacy  in this segment XO details some key factors on why we need to learn more about Financial Literacy starting off with People are shouldering more of the Financial Decisions like Retirement and the segment ending with the Overwhelming Choices we have to make about finances that all play roles in our everyday life.

Empowering Your Life & Removing Toxic People
SEASON 5 EPISODE 12 In this episode of SaunaiE Podcast our host XO starts off the show talking about his week in San Diego, visiting the San Diego Zoo for the 1st time in 20 years & how the experience was different as an adult versus being a kid. He learned so much being at the Zoo, the different animals, & their environments/habitats. XO also visited some intriguing restaurants such as Crushed in San Diego which is a great brunch spot, they serve Ceviche, Jelly-Filled French Toast Sticks, incredible Mimosa Flights, & Chicken Chiliquilies. Everything from the service to the drinks was excellent, highly recommend this brunch spot for anyone visiting San Diego.  He also visited King & Queen Cantina which is an urban Mexican food spot in San Diego with Tapas, Mouth-Watering Guacamole, & Refreshing Margaritas. They had everything set up perfectly for Outdoor/Indoor dining , socially distancing, & staff were masked up.  Another breakfast spot that XO visited was Gaslamp Breakfast company which was founded 2019, the interior design of this restaurant was mind-blowing. They serve vegan friendly food as well. XO got the vegan omelette which was incredible but the highlight of breakfast was the Caramel Apple Mimosa, this Mimosa is a MUST-TRY.  The last restaurant XO ate at was a Brazilian restaurant called "Fogo De Chao" in San Diego but they have several locations around California. This place was the cherry on top after a great trip away. The service was Phenomenal, The Food was Mouth-Watering servers came by serving different cooked meats, & great drinks were served.  AND NOW XO talks about his Quotes of the Day, 1 of being more Grateful about your life while striving in the life that you want. The 2nd Quote talks about Resentment and how resentment holds us back from progressing in life & relationships.  1st Topic: Empowering Your Life This topic hits home with the podcast because we're always talking about Mental Health and life empowerment is HUGE when it comes to Mental Health some examples that XO touched on were "Paying Yourself 1st, Investing, Having An Emergency Fund, Visualizing, Meditating, Creating A Life-Plan & A lot more dealing with Wealth, Mindset, Wisdom, & Leadership" 2nd Topic: Types of Toxic People  This is another topic that hits home because we've all had Toxic people in our lives and didn't know how to classify them. So with this segment we covered a few that we've came across throughout our lives. Starting with the Conversational Narcissist, & ending with the JJ. You don't want to miss out on this segment, it's an eye opener to a lot of us.
