How to Get Through a Job Loss as a Father

How to Get Through a Job Loss as a Father

Losing a job can be one of the biggest crises a man may ever may face. Today I have Michael Jeffery on the show. He is the father of three and one of our Dad Edge Alliance members. Michael has been in sales for 15 years. In October, he was terminated.

As a dad, Michael felt like his whole world was turned upside down. His wife was in pieces and they began to live in a permanent state of panic. But then Michael tapped into The Dad Edge Alliance.

In this short episode, he talks about how the group helped him to believe he could get back on his professional feet again. He also reveals how his marriage is now better than ever, and why part of him is actually grateful to have lost his job.

Losing a job can be one of the biggest crises a man may ever may face. How can you get you and your family through it? #jobs #jobloss #unemployment #dads #fathers #men #finances Click To Tweet

Uncover Your Money Type and Pay Off Your Home Mortgage Faster with Jordan Goodman

Jordan Goodman, America’s Money Answer Man, is back on the GDP Podcast!

The GDP takes a deeper dive with financial expert Jordan Goodman. Last time with Jordan, he discussed mortgage optimization. This idea basically makes your home mortgage work for you. Instead of paying off your mortgage over 30 years, Jordan Goodman shows you how to pay off your mortgage in less time and save you money. Who doesn’t want that? There was such a great response to our last show with Jordan we decided to bring him back on the show this time to answer some of your questions and help to clarify what mortgage optimization can do for you.

 

Jordan Goodman Discussing Your Money Type

One of the key questions asked of Jordan is how our relationship with money affects how we go about our daily response to our finances and if mortgage optimization would work for all of us. Of course, understanding your relationship with money is key to determining if a program like mortgage optimization is right for you. Knowing if you’re a squirrel or a high roller (or one of the other money personality types) with money will help determine how you could use this program to help you pay off your mortgage faster and put more money in your monthly pocket.

 

The Banks Have You Looking the Other Way

Don’t be fooled by the bank idea of what your mortgage should look like. Optimization has been used globally for years and just recently has been introduced in the US. However the idea of allowing your money to work for you rather than your money working for the bank is not something the banks are going to want to inform you of freely. So in this episode Jordan clearly outlines how identifying your emotional response to money as well as your spouses emotional response to money will help determine if this program will work for you and then how to get it started.

 

Our Money and Our Kids

At the GDP, we know it’s important to show our children how to respond to every situation. We have a consistent message and present guests that help us show up as better people to those who depend on us. This also includes how we respond to our finances and  what are emotional tie  is with money and how we can help our children establish a more positive relationship with money in their future. If we demonstrate a better grasp of making our money work for us rather than the opposite, our children see that habit and are able to replicate it on their own for their own family. What a great gift to give them so that they can have a more positive and healthy relationship with money in their future as well.

How to pay off your home mortgage and be financially free in 5 years with Jordan Goodman


Jordan Goodman, America’s Money Answer Man, comes on the Good Dad Project Podcast and shares insights on paying off our mortgages in 5-7 years, paying off credit debit, and saving for the future.

The American Dream: House, 2.5 kids, pets, credit card debt, 30 year mortgage with an arm, car loan, wondering how to pay for the education of those 2.5 kids, the list goes on. It’s kind of a given, isn’t it? Being strapped till the end of time with debt? It kind of nestles itself right in with the family, just like that annoying relative. How comfy! But, what if, you could eliminate that unwanted “family member” more quickly than you thought?

The Mortgage

Jordan Goodman (Money magazine, financial analyst at NBC along with being the author of numerous books on the topic) has helped people pay off their mortgage in 5-6 years and reduce their credit card debt. Yeah, right, you say. But, it’s true! He says if you have equity in your home, take out a Home Equity Line of Credit, connect it to your checking account, use the credit line to pay towards the principal of your mortgage. Repaying the line of credit and then repeating the process six months to a year down the road, you will have that house paid off rapidly.

The Debt

Credit cards can be both a blessing and a curse. The blessing is that they help build our credit. The curse is that, if we overspend on them, we can find ourselves in a world of hurt. Use one credit card to pay your bills every month and then pay it off the next month. That way, you keep your credit in great standing and pay your regular bills.

The Budget

Half of all divorces occur because of money issues. Yep, that unwanted family member is responsible for half of all the broken marriages. So, one solution to that issue is to have open communication with your spouse regarding handling money. Our relationship with money may differ from that of our spouse (most likely it will), so, understanding how our spouse deals with money and communicating how you deal with money is key to a happy home. If you really enjoy golf outings, but your wife loves her Manolo Blahnik’s (it’s a big name designer guys), then make those items part of your budget. Don’t just cut out the things that bring you joy in the name of frugality (unless, of course, you’re simply trying to put food on the table).

Of course, this is simply the tip of the ice berg. This episode really dives into the details of how you can get yourself on a better path with your money and unload the “family member” you aren’t so fond of.
