The Financial Flipside Podcast

The Financial Flipside is, in part, a podcast for entrepreneurs, but it’s not only that. We also talk about the politics of money and the way that economic issues impact our daily lives. Our episodes cover everything from trade to tax reform, from cash flow to credit, from the history of money to the economics of immigration, all in a way that is frank, accessible, and (hopefully) fun.

In episode 3, we continue our wealth discussion, but with a focus on small businesses. We talk about what drives our entrepreneurial aspirations, the difference between having a job and having a business, and how to set your company up for the long haul. Specifically, we discuss the importance of processes, getting well-acquainted with your finances, succession planning. Finally, we talk about resources for learning about enterprise building if you don’t have access to a business consultant, CPA, or financial planner.


Note: We’re moving to Mondays! We will still be posting episodes every two weeks, so join us on October 23 for more real money talk.
