On this episode, I chat with John Lanza. John is a well-known expert on youth financial literacy, and the co-founder of Money Mammals, a company on a mission to help parents raise money-smart kids. He is also the author of The Art of Allowance, a book that teaches parents how to set their kids up for financial success at an early age. John has spent over a decade talking to parent groups and credit unions about the importance of raising money-smart kids. He teaches the value of starting money-smart conversations early to empower youth and families to be wise about their finances.

In this conversation, John shares the dos and don'ts behind an allowance that works and sticks. He talks about the biggest mistakes parents make when they teach their kids about money and the best age to start teaching your kids financial literacy that will last them the rest of their lives. We discuss his techniques to help children distinguish between needs and wants to help raise non-spoiled financially autonomous children. John gives great advice to parents with teens who compare themselves with peers, to better understand the value of larger purchases. If you have kids in your life you'd like to start teaching the art and science of money, you'll wish to listen in.

John’s Three Jar Method

When it comes to starting your children’s financial journey, John has a three jar method as a starter financial framework: 

  • The Save jar - teaching children to pay themselves first

 

  • The Share jar - to understand charitable giving
  • The Spend Smart Jar - giving children spending power to buy small items

 

John’s Three Fundamental Principals

All parent's frameworks are not exact, but there are three core principals that should be a part of every plan:

  1. Distinguishing between needs and wants 
  2. Setting and saving for goals 
  3. Being intentional about choices and making money-smart decisions

Using the S.M.A.R.T Goals Method 

When teaching children about the value of purchases, using this acronym can help children understand how to set a goal for saving and successfully reach it while getting a feel for planning to reach their goal.

Specific - setting a specific goal to reach

Measurable - being able to measure progress to reach the goal

Attainable - understanding what’s attainable

Relevant - Is the purchase relative to their wants or needs

Time-based - understanding the time it takes to reach the goal

Laura started her entrepreneurial journey at a young age starting her business at just 19 years old and eventually becoming a nationally recognized marketing company. After working with hundreds of executives and business owners to take their businesses from struggles and plateaus to expansions, profit increases, and mergers and acquisitions she decided it was time for a change. Laura put together a plan and exit strategy from her company then retired at the age of just 37. In a spontaneous twist, she started a passion project that ultimately led to her writing her self-help book about how to powerfully manifest joy and abundance, developing a companion independent coaching program, and a 90-day life-changing program

In this conversation, Laura and I discuss achieving and feeling true joy in life with simple methods for shaking the funk of self-doubt and replacing them with rock-solid confidence accompanied with deeper connection. Her optimistic perspective on an adverse time of domestic abuse is admirable, despite being in a traumatic relationship, Laura says there’s always something to be grateful for, even if it’s not easy to see at first. She gives 6 “master habits” that if followed have the potential to create more gratitude and happiness, she also shares a 3 step practice to help instill more self-kindness.

On this episode of the Wealthy Wellthy podcast, I talk with Dr. Shawn Tassone. Dr. Tassone is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology, and by the American Board of Integrative Medicine. He holds a medical degree, in addition to a PhD in mind-body medicine. He is highly regarded as a patient advocate. His work includes studies and publications on spirituality and medical care, whole foods to heal the human body, and integrative medicine to heal where Western medicine falls short, not to mention he's a leader in the field of hormones for optimal health and longevity.

During our conversation, Shawn shares a personal story of losing his mother to ovarian cancer and despite his vast knowledge of women’s health, he was left feeling helpless not being able to help her. This led him to begin researching integrative medicine and spirituality, which ultimately resulted in him acquiring his PhD in mind-body medicine. Dr. Tassone walks a balance between allopathic and alternative medicine understanding there is a place for traditional medicine as well as holistic healing depending on the patient’s condition and preferences. Shawn is an expert when it comes to women’s hormones, he shares tips and warning signs we all should be aware of and what to do when you just don’t feel right. He is a big proponent for normal hormone levels being specific to each individual, even if your levels are in the “normal” range they may not be normal to your body. We discuss how hormones play a crucial role in how we feel, think, and behave. He discloses that for some even if they're off just a bit, they can negatively impact sleep, weight, mood, and success. Just a few lifestyle tweaks can make a radical difference to not only how we can feel better in our own bodies, but also our relationships and performance. In other words, if you want to feel more love, make more money or just feel better and have more energy with good vibes you'll wish to listen in.

While most—especially listeners here—would agree health is TRUE wealth... there’s also an undeniable connection between your health and financial wealth.

One example of this: stress has already been linked to the six leading causes of death—and a recent study by Northwestern Mutual found that money was by far the leading source of stress for Americans.

It’s also true that when your energy is low—especially when you don’t know why—your income and stress levels suffer. This can create a negative cycle that is very hard to break free from. It’s also why I’m so excited about today’s interview...

Because in this episode of the Wealthy Wellthy Podcast, my guest may just have the answers you have been searching for. His name is Warren Phillips M.S.—he’s a serial entrepreneur and wellness innovator who had to overcome a life-threatening condition caused by extreme toxicity. By cracking the code on what he calls “true cellular detox” Warren transformed his own life (including his financial well-being) and has helped tens of thousands of others do the same.

Warren started his career not as a business owner, but as a credentialed geologist studying the impact of synthetic chemicals and environmental toxins, which empowered him with a unique understanding of toxicity effects on the human condition. In today's episode, Warren shares why detoxification is more important than nutrition for your health, wealth and longevity.

I've learned a ton from him personally and I'm thrilled to have him as a guest, especially since extreme toxicity is what nearly took my life a few years back. If you have lower energy and are living with more stress than you would like, this is a must-listen, and I'll be participating in The 90-Day True Cellular Detox™ Challenge. So if you wish to join me start by listening to this episode and check out the link below for more info.

I promise after you listen in, you'll want to take the challenge.
