Is Our Advisor Screwing Us?

fees 2.jpg

You're pretty certain your mom is getting screwed by her advisor, yet she doesn't want to hear your concerns. What do you do? How do you have the talk? Can she be convinced? That’s how we started the show with Diane from Indiana.

Next up was Melanie from New Jersey who was required to buy private mortgage insurance (PMI) but is now in a position to get rid of it. Should she and her husband ditch it by refinancing? And is it okay to deplete the brokerage account for a kitchen renovation?

In hour two we’re joined by Chieh Huang, the CEO of Boxed, an online and mobile membership-free wholesale retailer that offers direct delivery of bulk-sized packages.

Founded in 2013, there’s really one simple idea behind Boxed: make shopping for bulk easy, convenient and fun, so you can focus on the things that really matter.  

But there’s much more going on behind the scenes, especially in the HR department, and that’s really what got me interested in having this conversation.

As companies large and small define and redefine the American workplace, cultivating a mission-driven culture has taken hold among America’s most successful startups. This culture is not just about free snacks and nap rooms, it is about creating an environment where feedback is not just encouraged but actively sought by upper management.

How do companies make this happen? What can you do in yours to cultivate a mission-driven culture?

Chieh Huang has such a refreshing perspective when it comes to his employees that it’s hard not to be a fan. 

More companies need to follow his lead.

Coaching for Leaders

Today on the show I’m joined by Dave Stachowiak, a long distance friend of mine (we still haven’t met in person!) and host of the popular Coaching for Leaders podcast, a show aimed at helping you discover leadership wisdom through insightful conversations.

The workplace landscape is full of people wondering:

  • What am I supposed to do to create a vision for my team?

  • How do I get better feedback from my stakeholders?

  • Where do I start in holding a difficult employee accountable?

  • When's the right time to make the next move in my career?

  • How can I successfully manage my former peers?

If that describes you, there is hope, as it's a myth that leadership skills can't be learned.

Almost nobody is a born leader. Most leaders learn how to lead through the school of hard knocks, good training, years of hard work, effective coaching, and great mentors.

It’s no surprise that the most effective leaders have always known that investing in their leadership skills will pay off, big time. That's why many leaders have invested in coaching, executive MBA programs, and conferences.

We all have the potential. Anyone can learn to lead teams, companies, non-profits, and especially their own family.

Buy or Rent?

I'm all for owning real estate, but it's not something that makes sense in every situation. That's the discussion with Christine from New York, who with nearly $200,000 in the bank, is trying to decide if it makes sense to finally buy a home instead of being a renter.
