Welcome to the first ever episode of Chain of Wealth!
We’re so excited to get going and start sharing awesome free actionable financial advice that is relevant to everyone.
One of the topics where there is a massive disconnect in society and definitely something that the average person does not know enough about it (unless you’re a financial professional) is Wealth.
Thus – Chain of Wealth was born with the vision and mission to provide daily actionable free financial advice through interviewing people that have excelled and done something extraordinary.
This very first episode, or Episode 0, is just Denis & Katie. We’ll chat a bit about ourselves and the plan is just to discuss a bit about the podcast and give information about how best to use the website.
Ok so firstly, let’s dive into the Podcast itself, why a Wealth Podcast and what is the Chain of Wealth?
Quite simply put, there is a massive amount of information available these days on the internet and there are some really awesome people out there creating content and achieving their financial dreams.
The disconnect occurs in that this information is scattered all over the place, and unless you know exactly what you’re looking, it can take you ages to research and find it.
At the time we’re recording this, the US national debt is over 20 trillion dollars, and while it isn’t necessarily Joe Average’s debt, it definitely speaks to the economy as a whole.
Student debt is also at its highest level ever and people are starting their working careers with a massive debt already owning, pushing out their retirement and making it much harder for people to succeed.
In life, some of the most important things you’ll ever do financially you are not adequately prepared for, such as buying a house, car, saving for retirement and many other financial decisions.
The podcast and blog is a way to address this issue and help people make a massive difference in their lives.
This is one of the major reasons we decided to create the Chain of Wealth Podcast- to provide a free platform to educate people and provide financial advice.
So let’s dive into Chain of Wealth itself, what is the Chain of Wealth and who are the Chainers?
The Chain of Wealth is the hosts, interviewees and all our listeners. We all link together and leverage off each other to provide a network of knowledge, resources and a community where honest information is provided to help each other.
Chainers are our listeners and everyone that is part of our community.
Awesome! So we’ve gone through the basics, but now let’s get into introductions!
Let’s chat about Denis – Originally from South Africa, CA(SA), 5 years of working experience in Corporate in an extremely wide variety of industries and countries.
Let’s chat about Katie- Grew up in Tampa, Florida, 2nd Grade School Teacher, trying to learn more about the financial world and already done some big financial things, got student debt, bought and sold a house and bought a car.
We’ve already interviewed some leading inspirational people such as David Weliver from Money Under 30, Jackie Ruka from GetHappyZone, Brandon Krieg from Stash Invest and many, many other leaders in their respective industries!
The podcast will run from Monday to Friday and the structure will be an interview based podcast. Episodes will range from 15 to 30 minutes long and so will be perfect for most people who go about their weekly routine.
Now let’s talk about the format of the interview – each interview for Chain of Wealth undergoes a rigorous research process and questions asked in the main part of the interview. It is designed to get the most important information out of our guests and answer some questions that we might have.
After that we have a short break and then dive right into the value link round.
The value link round is a lightning round where we extract even more value bombs from our guests and finally end with some parting advice and how you can get in touch with our guests should you wish to do that.
Each and every interview will have a show notes page on our website which is probably where you want to go if you’re looking for a quick recap of the interview as a whole. To access the show notes page, you can either search for the interview or you can browse through the podcast page.
We also use timestamps in our show notes which are totally awesome! What it means is that if you click on the green links it’ll jump right into that portion of the audio clip so you can listen to our guests’ responses super quickly and easily.
There are also links to all the resources that get discussed in the show which provides an amazing platform and a huge amount of value as you can click directly through to what they are talking about.
Definitely check out the website chainofwealth.com there is really some awesome material on there. Check out the podcast page and Katie’s blogs about her journey to getting out of $30,000 in student loan debt from a public Florida university.
Speaking about the website, we’ve also going to add really great guides and content. As an example we’ve written a debt guide for you to check out – chainofwealth.com/debt which is completely FREE.
Anyway, we’re pumped to get going and super excited for our first two guest, Jackie Ruka and Matt DeCoursey
