Worth Knowing/Millionaire Series/Hard Left Turn: Making a Financial Pivot, With Joe Saul-Sehy

Hard Left Turn: Making a Financial Pivot, With Joe Saul-Sehy


We are continuing the Worth Listening Millionaire Series today with Joe Saul-Sehy. Joe is the creator and co-host of the award-winning Stacking Benjamins podcast and the co-author (with Emily Guy Birken) of the new hit book STACKED: Your Super Serious Guide to Modern Money Management. While Joe is known for being a financial expert and was once known as the “money man” in media, his career started out as a financial advisor who wasn’t taking his own advice. He’s going to share with us the low moment in his financial life when he realized it was time to make some changes and what he did to turn things around.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • How he first got into debt while in college
  • ​The moment he realized he needed to make changes in his life
  • Why it’s not about how much you make but what you do with what you make
  • ​The importance of surrounding yourself with smart people and how to find the right people
  • ​The different professionals that can help you at the different stages of your financial journey
  • ​Why he left a career as a financial advisor and how he eventually got into podcasting
  • ​How his book STACKED: Your Super Serious Guide to Modern Money Management is different from other financial guides
  • ​A simple exercise you can do to help prioritize your financial goals
  • ​The importance of doing some research into your goals before determining what risk level you should be at
