4 Reasons You Need To Stop Comparing Your Finances (This Year)
 
08:58
Comparing yourself to others is a horrible habit, yet we all do it. It's so easy to look at what other people have and wish we did too. We look at our friends, family, coworkers, and even celebrities and compare our financial state to theirs. But this is detrimental to your financial health. If you actually want to build wealth and live the life that you dream of, making comparisons is only going to hold you back. There are 4 big reasons you need to stop comparing yourself to others in 2018. These reasons will keep you from getting what you actually want, moving where you want to move, buying what you want to buy, and gaining the financial freedom you so desire.

How to Stop Buying Crap You Don't Actually Want (Right Now)
 
05:59
A lot of our money problems could be solved if we stopped buying stuff we don't actually want. But the problem is that we think we want it, we truly think we like it. But in reality, we actually only like the idea of it. I've been thinking a lot about things that I like the idea of versus actually liking the reality. Sometimes I like the idea of buying something but it doesn't meet my expectations after I buy it. I don't want that to happen to you. I want you to save money because you're clear on what you actually want. Be sure to ask yourself this one question before every purchase. I promise if you do that, you'll save money and be able to buy more of what you actually like.

Emergency Fund: How Much You Need In Your 20s (Hint: It's Different)
 
07:20
Saving your emergency fund can be one of the hardest things to do in your 20s. You've got student loans, car loans, a low income, and an itch to travel and spend money. Saving up 3-6 months of expenses seems nearly impossible. So the question is, do you really need that much? I believe that sometimes people in their 20s are told to save too much in their emergency fund and they would be better off saving less if they're in a certain situation. Of course, this won't work for everyone, but it's worth understanding. There are two groups of people in their 20s. One group can save a little less and use the excess money to pay off debt faster and invest for their future. The other group is probably better off saving a little more before investing and paying off more debt. Be sure to watch the video to find out which group you're in and exactly how much you should be saving in your emergency fund.

How To Increase Your Credit Limit (Step by Step)
 
10:51
Your credit limit plays a big part in helping you boost your credit score. By getting a higher credit limit you can lower your credit utilization ratio which makes up about 30% of your credit score. That's why every 6 months I call my credit card companies and ask for a credit limit increase. But this isn't for everyone. If you aren't consistently paying your credit card bill on time and in full every single month, don't even watch this video. You need to be a responsible credit card user before you try this tactic. But once you've done that, increasing your credit limit is a great way to help boost that credit score. I've used this tactic consistently over the past few years to boost both mine and Hanna's credit scores to over 790. The bottom line is this works. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Other Helpful Videos: How To Use A Credit Card and How They Work: https://youtu.be/ST2seXm44-I What is a Credit Score and How to Increase Yours: https://youtu.be/euoR0JKJaeg Credit Card: How To Choose Your First One: https://youtu.be/y9AhvqPYoDk My Website: https://mappedoutmoney.com/ FOLLOW ME Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mappedoutmoney Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nickdtrue/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/nickdtrue PS: If you have an Amazon Alexa, I just launched a brand new daily flash briefing called 30 Second Money.

Why You Should Splurge (Our Airstream Renovation)
 
04:42
It's so easy to get caught up in saving money that we never allow ourselves to spend it. Admittedly, this isn't a problem for most people, but if you've started to change your spending ways, it's easy to swing too far on the frugal side. I want to encourage you that it's okay to splurge sometimes, especially if it's planned out and part of your budget. Hanna and I have spent a ton of money on our Airstream because that's what is important to us. We did two major Airstream Renovations to make it feel how we wanted. To do this, we made a ton of sacrifices in other areas and worked lots of overtime to make enough money to pay for it all. I hope you enjoy this video and it gives you the courage to go after whatever it is you want and make the sacrifices required to pull it off. ______________________________________________ My Website: https://mappedoutmoney.com/ FOLLOW ME Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mappedoutmoney Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mappedoutmoney Twitter: https://twitter.com/nickdtrue PS: If you have an Amazon Alexa, I just launched a brand new daily flash briefing called 30 Second Money.

Sticking to your budget is extremely difficult, but it doesn't have to be. If you're using this word, there's no way you're going to stick to your budget.

Questioning Everything Is The Best Thing We've Done With Money
 
06:01
There are so many assumptions and beliefs that hold us back from doing things we really want to do. If we were 5 years old, we would question these beliefs. But as we get older we stop asking questions. But hands down, the best thing Hanna and I have done with our money is to simply question everything. See, nearly 50% of the decisions we make every single day, are made based on our habits. Tha means we aren't actually thinking about these decisions. Which is extremely problematic. You should be questioning all of your decisions, big or small. By asking questions and really thinking it through, you increase your chances of saving money and making decisions you won't regret. Plus, you won't accidentally slip into living your life by default. ______________________________________________ My Website: https://mappedoutmoney.com/ FOLLOW ME Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mappedoutmoney Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mappedoutmoney Twitter: https://twitter.com/nickdtrue PS: If you have an Amazon Alexa, I just launched a brand new daily flash briefing called 30 Second Money.

How to Set Goals You'll Crush (Plus my 2018 Goals)
 
18:30
Goal setting is one of the most fun and yet difficult things to do. There seems to be an endless amount of goal setting systems out there. But I've found one that works for me and seems to work for anyone who really tries it. I found this system through Michael Hyatt and it's called the S.M.A.R.T.E.R. framework. It helps you set goals that are: S = Specific M = Measurable A = Actionable R = Risky T = Time-Keyed E = Exciting R = Relevant When you set goals this way, your odds of actually accomplishing them go through the roof. I'm also going to discuss how you can create key motivations around each of your goals that will help you keep them top of mind and stay on track. Plus there's one little trick when it comes to these key motivations and it has to do with setting a motivation based on what will happen if you don't reach these goals. If you're like me, you've set plenty of goals in the past and never stuck to them. Well that all changes today.

The people around you are keeping you poor
 
06:00
You are who you hang with. This is a well-known phrase that goes along with an even more well-known phrases "You're the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with." This may seem like an overstatement, but it's the cold hard truth. The people you hang around have an absolutely massive impact on you, your finances, your health, your faith, and your attitude. If you're serious about not being poor and getting ahead with your money, you need to audit your inner circle. This may mean making hard decisions like pulling away from friends. But sometimes that's what it takes if you want to get ahead. Ultimately, you need to spend time around people who are on a similar path. Period. ______________________________________________ My Website: https://mappedoutmoney.com/ FOLLOW ME Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mappedoutmoney Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mappedoutmoney Twitter: https://twitter.com/nickdtrue PS: If you have an Amazon Alexa, I just launched a brand new daily flash briefing called 30 Second Money.

Want to be Rich and Happy? Get Rid of The Sunk Cost Bias
 
11:48
A cognitive bias is something that most humans deal with that affects the decisions we make. Unfortunately, one of the biggest ones is called the Sunk Cost Bias and it has a bad effect on most of us. Whether it's a car, a house, a phone, a degree, or a career, most of us have kept something or finished something solely based on sunk cost. But wealthy people have figured out how to beat the sunk cost bias. They know how to recognize it and fight it off. And if you want to be happy with your life and build wealth, you must beat the sunk cost bias and not let it affect your current decisions. It will hold you back and keep you from getting where you want to go. So pay attention to when this bias pops up in your life and start beating it.

RV Life Can Suck (This Is Why You Don't Make Comparisons)
 
07:50
We thought we were about to quit. We'd been planning to transition to the RV for two years, and after only a couple of days, we were ready to throw in the towel. We thought we caught the RV on fire, changed campgrounds multiple times, got food poisoning, and that was all just the first day. It got much worse as the week went on. We literally were asking ourselves why we did this and wondered what in the world we got ourselves into. It was bad. I share this story because I want you to know that life isn't always what it looks like on Instagram. In fact, it can be pretty bad sometimes. That's why it's so important not to compare yourself to other people. We love our life. We love traveling. And we love living in our camper. But that doesn't mean life is always peaches and creme. Far from it actually. I hope this video inspires you to stop comparing yourself to others, because most of the time, you're comparing yourself to a false version of the truth. ______________________________________________ My Website: https://mappedoutmoney.com/ FOLLOW ME Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mappedoutmoney Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mappedoutmoney Twitter: https://twitter.com/nickdtrue PS: If you have an Amazon Alexa, I just launched a brand new daily flash briefing called 30 Second Money.

Check out our video on Russell's channel here: https://youtu.be/z0A1o0HvV_8 Royalty Free Music from Bensound Track: The Lounge www.bensound.com ____________________________________________________ Most people spend money on things out of habit or because that's the normal thing to do. But what if you could save lots of money by thinking about your spending a little more and then rejecting what could be considered "normal." Today I have my friend Russell on to share about a time that he and his girlfriend did something totally out of the norm to save a massive amount of money. I'll also share how Hanna and I saved an extreme amount of money on Cell Phones during the first couple years of our marriage. As always, my main goal is just to get you to think more in depth about your spending and make better decisions. If you like spending a lot on something, then go for it! But just make sure you're really thinking it through. ______________________________________________ My Website: https://mappedoutmoney.com/ FOLLOW ME Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mappedoutmoney Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mappedoutmoney Twitter: https://twitter.com/nickdtrue PS: If you have an Amazon Alexa, I just launched a brand new daily flash briefing called 30 Second Money.
