EP 124 | Profit Boss® Radio

Welcome to the first Ask Hilary episode of Season 3 of Profit Boss® Radio! All season long, I encourage you to send me your financial questions so that I can answer them on the show, and I’m happy to share that my listeners have great questions that I know all of you will learn from and be able to apply to your own lives.

Today’s episode includes questions about business taxes, the stock market, prioritizing your money to save for retirement, and investments. I’m thrilled to answer all these listener questions in today’s episode. Thank you to Nikki, Carrie, Malaika, Ina, and everyone else that sends me questions.

And let’s not forget that this show is powered by you and your stories and questions. Every month I’ll be doing an #AskHilary episode where I answer listener financial questions.

  • So, what’s that top of mind money question that’s been pinging around in your brain?
  • Where have you been stopped?
  • What have you been arguing with your spouse or significant other about?
  • What tip or tool aren’t you sure about?
  • Do you have questions about saving? Spending? Budgeting? Investing?

Pick up your mobile phone right now. Yes, right now. And open your voice recorder app. Yep, go ahead and open that app and record yourself asking me that question. Just say your name, first name only is okay, and then what city you’re from, and then ask away.

Anything you want to ask. And once you’re done recording, export that beautiful little recording and email it to [email protected]

I can’t wait to hear your questions!.
