There’s a right way and a wrong way to do all sorts of things. For instance we think that the right way to load toilet paper is with it dispensing over the top of course! Or, sometimes you see guys at the beach and they’re beet-red but they’ve still got their shirt off and they’re likely not wearing any sunscreen- what’re they doing?! And similar to quitting your job the right way, getting burned seems to be a lesson that many folks don’t often learn until they are older, or until after they’ve learned the lesson the hard way. But when it comes to your professional career, we want you to realize that quitting poorly can have very negative long-term ramifications. And the flip side of the coin is true as well- higher pay, more work flexibility, and better opportunities in the future await! Learn what you should be doing before you quit your job, how to ensure that you’re not leaving money on the table when you leave, and how you can best transition out of your current job.
- Discounts – How you ask for a discount makes all the difference- listen back to how you can pay less for almost everything!
- Healthcare – If you’re looking for a very affordable health care alternative (like by a factor of 6x) that isn’t technically insurance, then you definitely need to check out Medi-Share. Joel has recently joined and our family has been with them for over 5 years.
- Sedera is also another health sharing option that doesn’t have any religious affiliation if that’s not your thing.
- Life insurance – Read about how you can choose life insurance that is cheap and easy to buy.
- Extra cash – And regardless of where you are on the path to financial independence, we believe in the responsible use of credit cards. It’s smart to utilize the additional benefits that credit cards offer- for instance the 60,000 points that come with the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card. That’s $750 when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards! (not to mention we think it’s the best travel rewards credit card!) This is no joke- I’ve already done this myself which we discussed on a recent episode after I met the initial spending requirements of $4,000 over 3 months!
