Today’s guest is Dave Claffey, Head of Communications at the startup Earnin. Dave served in the National Guard before attending college. It took him a little time to find his path, but once he did he has worked hard at every job to reach the top and then move on to the next opportunity. He has his numbers set towards financial independence and early retirement and is well on his way.

Today Dave will share with us the ups and downs of his financial journey. He very recently paid off his last debt (minus a house) and has several side-hustles going to help him grow his investments.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • The difficulties of being the first person in the family to go to college
  • ​How his time in the military helped him get out of debt and what caused him to go back in debt.
  • ​The 3 things that he tells people about getting their finances in order.
  • ​How the app Earnin differs from a payday loan advance and how they’re helping their customers.
