Each year, we release a show describing what we're thankful for - and there's no better time for that than Thanksgiving.

In the early years of the show, we skipped a "Thanksgiving" episode because Shawn thought "who is going to listen on Thanksgiving Thursday? Of course, our listeners listen to shows on different days of the week, and sometimes weeks, months or years after a particular episode is released.

Of course, we're happy for all of you listening to the show! We're thankful to our guests, and sponsors as well.  This year, we're thrilled to add our patrons to our list of people to be thankful for.

Debt and financial issues are tough to try to tackle alone. What are you all thankful for this year?

Let us know if you enjoy this episode and, if so, please share it with your friends!

If you have built up your emergency fund, nice work!  If not, there is still time to do so.

However, what can you do if you need to use it and those funds run dry?

Shawn & George discuss an article written by Quentin Fottrell for MarketWatch.com titled "Living paycheck-to-paycheck has become the norm: Inflation takes its toll on American finances as emergency funds run dry." You can find the article here: 'Living paycheck-to-paycheck has become the norm': Inflation takes its toll on American finances as emergency funds run dry - MarketWatch

Some options:

  • Don't take on too much debt (of course, if you could do that you would be able to avoid paycheck-to-paycheck; and
  • Have people help you to get out of debt (whether by helping financially or even just giving advice).

We also discuss some signs that you might be nearing bankruptcy, and some ways to fight inflation.

As today's episode is released, Shawn will be speaking at his sons' elementary school for the Great American Teach-In, which means Thanksgiving is approaching. Be sure to check out next week's annual Thanksgiving episode!

What financial topics would you make sure business owners knew and understood before opening their businesses?

Back in Episode 330, we talked about the Personal Finance Education Bill (HB 1054) that became law in Florida as of July 1, 2022, and requires a financial literacy course as a prerequisite to high school graduation. In that episode Shawn & George designed the perfect personal financial course!

We thought it would be fun if, after designing the perfest personal financial course, if we got a call from Governor Ron DeSantis to design the perfest business financial course!

We go through curriculum items like:

  • Reading and understanding your Balance Sheet, Profit & Loss, Cash Flow, and other financial statements;
  • Understanding the different types of loans and loan documents;
  • Having an exit plan;
  • Separating business and personal funds (maybe using the Profit First system);
  • And other syllabus items!

After listening to the episode, do you agree?  What would you include or exclude? Can you connect us with Governor DeSantis? Or please just share this episode with your friends!

What is the charitable gifting of real estate?

Who would give away their valuable real estate?

Is the charitable gifting of real estate only for the super wealthy?

In the calendar year 2021, approximately $9 Billion was donated in real estate alone, and that is only a small fraction of all donations given to organizations nationwide. Real Estate giving is through various organizations, include Realty Gift Fund, which our guest talks about on this week's episode of The Crushing Debt Podcast.

Originally from Washington State, Cherie Buell relocated to the Tampa Bay area in 2006 and have become deeply rooted in the area as an accomplished Realtor holding multiple designations, including Accredited Buyer Representative, Seller Representative Specialist, Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist and the FIRST Charitable Real Estate Champion in Pinellas County.

Cherie and I discuss charitable gifting of real estate, what properties qualify, who are the Real Agents of Change, and how you can help benefit your favorite charitable organization.

You can reach Cherie at 727-266-6530, CherieBuell.Realtor@gmail.com or www.YourLuxuryHomeSold.com.
