Money, Motivation & More with Robert Gignac – Podcast Episode 25 “On Social Media We’re All Rich”

In “On Social Media We’re All Rich” I’m sharing thoughts about why and how social media distorts our concepts about our financial well being. Can paying less attention to what we see there can be better for our us? Ok, I’m not advocating cancelling your Facebook account (well… I wouldn’t be against it… but I get it…). In fact, I said that in conversation with Doug Hoyes on his “Debt Free in 30” podcast. I’ve included a snippet of our conversation as part of today’s message. Why do I think this is important? Report after report shows financial anxiety at the […]

Money, Motivation & More with Robert Gignac – Podcast Episode 24 “Too Much Stuff”

In the theme of the Money, Motivation & More podcast – this episode falls into the “Money” or “Motivation” category – depending on your perspective. In “Too Much Stuff” I’m sharing thoughts about why storage lockers are a massive growth industry. I’m also sharing a conversation I had on WE Talk Money with Gordon Stein – author of the excellent “CashFlow Cookbook” (https://cashflowcookbook.com/) where Gordon shares with us the true cost of storage lockers. It ties nicely into Episode #23 as well, as a continuation of  spiralling consumption, how to avoid it. I hope you enjoy it. As always, “thank […]

Money, Motivation & More with Robert Gignac – Podcast Episode 23 “The Diderot Effect”

In the theme of the Money, Motivation & More podcast – this episode can fall into the “Money” or “Motivation” category – depending on your perspective. In “The Diderot Effect” I’m sharing a conversation from the excellent “Debt Free In 30″podcast with host Doug Hoyes (http://debtfreein30.libsyn.com/) where Doug and I discussed the French writer Denis Diderot and how his life changed dramatically over the gift of a dressing gown (ok, it was the 1700’s… but still 100% applicable today…). It’s really a discussion of spiralling consumption, how to avoid it and if you can bear it – how to stop […]

Money, Motivation & More with Robert Gignac – Podcast Episode 22 “Lessons From An Aluminum Boat”

In the theme of the Money, Motivation & More podcast – this episode falls into the “More” category. In “Lessons From An Aluminum Boat” I’m sharing what happened during a recent morning spent fishing with my Dad, and how those couple of hours are now affecting how I look at my business. I cover three specific ideas: 1) Fish where the fish live; 2) Engage in consistent action; and 3) If it isn’t working – change it. I suspect it will add some insights into prospecting (if you’re a financial advisor or entrepreneur…) or marketing or perhaps even dealing with […]

Money, Motivation & More with Robert Gignac – Podcast Episode 21 “What Is The Goal?”

Thanks for your patience loyal podcast listeners – my new TV show “WE Talk Money” has some overlap to the podcast in terms of content – and as such – in “What Is The Goal” I’m sharing a conversation with Mike Rice from Investors Group Financial Services and focuses entirely on Goals – in short – if it’s goal-related – we’re talking about it. During our short time together Mike and I only scratched the surface of “goals” and to be honest, in Chapter 5 of “Rich is a State of Mind” called “What is the Goal?” I could only […]
