I have podcast episodes and blogs about how to come off of Freddie Mac's Exclusionary List, but today's Crushing Debt Podcast episode discusses what to do if you get a letter that Freddie Mac intends to put you on the List. Is it possible to stay off the List if Freddie believes you should be on the Exclusionary List?

For other episodes describing what the List is?  The significance of being on the List? How someone can come off of the List? An analysis of the different techniques that have and have not worked to get someone off the Exclusionary List.  And other topics, you may want to check out the following previous episodes:

Do you continue to learn? What do you do to feed your body, your mind, and your spirit?

Long time listeners know that I read, at least 30 - 45 minutes per day in the morning when I first wake up as part of my daily routine to get ready for my day. The house is quiet and my wife and kids are still asleep (most mornings).

Each year, I like to do an episode on some of more impactful books I've read the previous year, which is the topic of today's Crushing Debt Podcast episode.

While I don't talk about every book (there were 26 of them this year), I do give you brief summaries and take-aways from the following books. My hope is that you find some books in the below list that interest you, that you can read over the coming years:

  • You Can Negotiate Anything - Herb Cohen
  • Shark In The Housing Pool - Matthew Cox
  • Clockwork - Mike Michalowicz
  • The New Great Depression - James Rickards
  • Why My J.O.B. Quit Me - Mechiel Kopaska
  • Remarkable Business - Contribution by Shawn Yesner
  • Your Best Year Yet - Jinny S. Ditzler
  • The Energy Bus - Jon Gordon
  • Bitcoin Billionaires - Ben Mezrich
  • The Bomber Mafia - Malcolm Gladwell
  • The Pumpkin Plan - Mike Michalowicz
  • Building a Story Brand - Donald Miller
  • The 401k Revival - Michael Watkins
  • The Creature from Jekyll Island - G. Edward Griffin
  • The Diabetes Code - Dr. Jason Fung
  • Permission Marketing - Seth Godin

I had the privilege to interview some of these authors about their books on my show during the year.

  • Mike Michalowicz - Episode 231, Become Debt Free with Profit First
  • Michiel Kopaska - Episode 263, Stuck in a J.O.B.?
  • Michael Watkins - Episode 284, Sidestep the Market Crash (plus episodes 196 and 97)

I would also like to know what books you've read that are not on this list, that I can read this year or next.  What books have had the greatest impact on you, or you have enjoyed reading? Please email me at Shawn@YesnerLaw.com.

Please also support our friend and sponsor, Sam Cohen at Attorneys First Insurance by introducing him to an attorney or title company that would like a quote on malpractice insurance. You can connect an attorney or title company to Sam at Sam@AttorneysFirst.com or www.AttorneysFirst.com

How young did you begin to learn money management skills? How early are you teaching your kids these skills?

When did you buy your first home? Do you wish you did sooner?

How do you teach your kids how to achieve financial independence at a young age?

This week's guest on the Crushing Debt Podcast is Dan Sheeks, the newest Bigger Pockets published author, with his book First to a Million: A Teenager's Guide to Achieving Early Financial Freedom.

Small claims court is designed to allow people to settle their disputes, in court, without using attorneys.

The proceedings are a little less formal, there are opportunities to settle the dispute through mediation right at the beginning of the process, hearings are streamlined, and the process is for disputes of $8,000 or less (in Florida).

What should you know about small claims court, and why do few attorneys like to practice in small claims court?

At the very beginning of the show (Episode 7) I also discussed small claims court. You can hear that show at: https://traffic.libsyn.com/secure/yesnerlawpodcast/236985793-yesner_law_podcast-episode-7-small-claims-court.mp3

Please also support our sponsor Sam Cohen at Attorneys First Insurance by introducing him to an attorney or title company that is in need of malpractice insurance, or who has a malpractice insurance renewal approaching.  Sam@AttorneysFirst.com or www.AttorneysFirst.com.

If you think it would be helpful for me to develop a course of some materials to help people navigate small claims court with the knowledge of attorney, but without the price tag of one, please let me know - Shawn@YesnerLaw.com or www.YesnerLaw.com
