Money, Motivation & More – Episode 27 “Be It Resolved”

In “Be It Resolved” I thought I’d kickoff 2019 by talking about goals versus resolutions.  I know, you’re thinking I’m going to say “goals good!” and “resolutions bad!”. Actually there is much more to it than that. In today’s episode I’m likely to only scratch the surface of the topic. That’s ok too – that’s why there will be future episodes (I hope…). As the clock ticked over to start 2019 we are once again on the verge a new period – a new year. I’d like to drag your thoughts back to January 1, 2018 for a moment, if […]

Money, Motivation & More – Podcast Episode 26 “What Do We Want? Money!”

In “What Do We Want? Money!” I’m sharing thoughts about creating a more successful financial future, ignoring the FOMO (that’s Fear Of Missing Out for those of you over the age of 40-something…), determining what our first steps should be and I share a couple of key components that have worked for me. Please don’t think I have this all figured out, I’m still a work in progress, I can and do make financial mistakes, but I try to make fewer of them and of a less significant impact as I move forward. Didn’t stop me from buying juicer though. […]

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 […]
