Today on the show we’re talking with one of the greatest minds in the personal finance space- Clark Howard. Clark is a money expert with a heart of gold who hosted his own radio show for over 30 years. I had the pleasure of working with him for 14 of those years. He is also the author of 10 books and continues to produce an excellent podcast daily because he somehow has limitless amounts of energy. But some of his more impressive accomplishments have been via the work he spearheads in Atlanta and the surrounding communities, including his partnerships with Habitat for Humanity, and his annual Clark’s Christmas Kids broadcasts which have helped ensure that over 150,000 kids received presents on Christmas morning that otherwise wouldn’t have.

Clark’s main website is, you can find the best deals over at, and if you need personal help with your money then be sure to head over to the Consumer Action Center where you can get free advice. You can find that incredible resource over at

And here’s one of the distinctions between us and other personal finance fundamentalists out there: we believe in the responsible use of credit cards. It’s smart to utilize the additional benefits that credit cards offer, though we don’t want you to be tempted into spending more than you otherwise would. But if you’re looking to maximize your credit card benefits, Chase is offering the best welcome offer we have ever seen. The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card is rewarding folks $1,250 after the initial spending requirements of $4,000 over 3 months!

    I will be listening to this episode, grew up listening to Clark, learned a lot from him. My favorite though was the “Clark Stinks” segments. Keep it up guys.
