"Sign, sign, everywhere a sign." -Five Man Electrical Band

What are the signs that you might need some financial help?

What are some things to look for or listen for to determine whether you might want to talk to a financial coach? Signs that you might need to seek legal counsel?

On this week's episode of the Crushing Debt Podcast, George and Shawn talk about the various signs that someone might need help, or might be in trouble financially. 

There are some common signs, like living paycheck to paycheck.

There are some signs that suggest you may need some coaching or accountability, like help creating a budget, being on the "hamster wheel," avoiding your mail, using cards for necessities, and feeling like you need to "keep up with the Joneses."

There are some signs that you need to seek out legal counsel, like getting sued, getting calls from creditors, bouncing checks or overdrawing your account, or an inability to pay for necessities. 

"Do this don't do that. Can't you read the sign?"

How does debt play a role in different ages and milestones?

How do we minimize the negative impact of debt during each stage of our life?

In there a difference in how debt during young adulthood, mid-life, and retirement?

What is the average debt per person in the US, versus the average salary in the US (hint, visit www.USADebtClock.com)?

In this week's episode, George and Shawn talk about the different types of debt that we have to manage as we make our way through the different stages of life, for example student loans for young adults, mortgages and consumer debt in mid-life, and medical debt later in life. We also discuss different strategies for avoiding or managing debt at every stage, as well as some universal tips regardless of age or stage.

What are some financial stressors out there?

What triggers your financial stress?

What is Surge Pricing?  Dynamic Pricing?

In this week's episode, Shawn & George talk about the various things that can cause financial stress.  Situations like: bankruptcy & foreclosure, job loss, reduced work hours or income, lack of savings, debt, health care costs, separation or divorce, the loss of a spouse, taxes, food and living expenses, and housing expenses among others.

Did we miss any?  What are some of your financial stressors and how do you deal with them?

Then, we talk about surge pricing or dynamic pricing - something that theme parks, airlines and uber have been doing for years. When the price of something increases during peak usage time, and decreases during non-peak usage time, that's surge pricing. Blackout dates are another good example of surge pricing. Recently, Wendy's announced (and then recanted) that they were going to implement surge pricing. Imagine a cheeseburger being more expensive during lunch than at 3 in the afternoon. Or image junk food being more expensive late at night than early in the morning.

Wendy’s says ‘dynamic pricing’ is different from ‘surge pricing,’ but whatever it’s called may still alienate customers (yahoo.com)
