Are you able to leave the office for a week on vacation and leave your work behind?

What do you need to do prior to leaving, to make sure that your vacation is a vacation, and not just working remote from some other place? 

This past week, Shawn & his family took a trip to Arizona. They were gone for a week, but Shawn left behind his iPad and laptop (he did bring  his phone, but he needed a phone, GPS, camera, etc.).  In this week's episode Shawn & George discuss what Shawn did prior to leaving, so that Shawn could "unplug" for a week!

You may also want to listen to Episode 307, Twenty-One Ways to Crush Your Vacation Debt (which Shawn also did prior to leaving), but this episode is more about unplugging than it is reducing debt: https://yesnerlawpodcast.libsyn.com/21-ways-to-crush-your-vacation-debt-episode-307 

Some things to think about that we discuss in this week's episode:

  • How long will you be gone?
  • What bills need to be paid in advance?
  • If you're the one with authority over the bank account, how do you handle unforseen expenses that might pop up?
  • Should you bring anything for work purposes (my vote is no)?
  • Setting auto-responders for emails and phones.
  • How the office can reach you in the event of a real emergency?

What happens to finances in a time of loss? Loss of job, loss of family or friends, loss due to illness, loss because of a divorce? 

Losses can happen to any of us at any time, but how you deal with the loss will also impact how the loss affects your finances.

In this week's episode Shawn and George talk to Bobby Clark, a personal finance coach and content writer for the Clark on Money Blog. Bobby helps his clients take the stress out of their personal finances, stop living paycheck to paycheck, plan for their future and achieve their life goals.

Shawn and George talk to Bobby about:

  • How to track spending
  • How to maintain systems
  • How to update a budget when loss happens
  • The importance of open communication with family
  • The importance of health care and estate documents, and more!

You can contact Bobby at Bobby@ClarkOnMoney.com or visit his website, which has a ton of great content and free downloads at www.ClarkOnMoney.com

Let us know how you deal with loss and if this episode will help someone dealing with loss, please share it with them.

What can you do to make more money quick?

Does quick money mean dishonest money?

Last week George and Shawn talked about Money Scams. This week, it's get rich quick schemes, but which ones are legitimate and which ones can get you into deeper debt?

  • Ponzi or Pyramid Schemes
  • Online Courses
  • Coaching (sorry George)
  • Multi-Level Marketing (MLMs)

What other "schemes" have you tried? Which have worked and which were ... ummm ... less than successful?
