Episode 38: Digital Footprint

Episode 38: Digital Footprint

February 25, 2021

Your digital footprint is similar to your actual footprints – think about when you walk through the house with muddy shoes. Your trail of data follows you around (unless you wipe off your “digital” shoes.) Your social media/online presence is rarely forgotten, so we’ll start the episode with some real-life social media horror stories. Then, we’ll dive into what your digital footprint really is, how it works, and how you can safely manage your personal information. It all starts with educating yourself (and your children) about the real impact of keeping your information private, and how having a digital footprint is not all bad (hello, job interview!) Tune in for this fun episode about the incredibly useful but all-knowing interwebs.

Episode 37: Financial Crimes

February 18, 2021

This week, we’re seeing (and hearing) double! Cort’s brother, Byron Winsett, is our special guest. As an Assistant District Attorney in Shelby County, Byron is the chief prosecutor of the Public Corruption and Economic Crimes Unit of the District Attorney’s office, which basically means he prosecutes a lot of financial, or “white-collar,” crimes, which just so happens to be exactly what we will be talking about. In the show, we’ll break down white-collar crimes, where the term came from, what the motivation for committing these crimes is, and everything in between. This is a fun episode where we have a candid chat with Byron about credit card fraud, insider trading, bribery, forgery, tax evasion, and so much more.

February 11, 2021

It’s almost Valentine’s Day, so we’d be remiss if this week’s episode wasn’t about love. Join us as we give a rundown of the best rom-coms – a tougher task than you’d imagine! In the meat and potatoes of the show, we’ll talk about love and money and how, when mixed together haphazardly, it can be a recipe for disaster. Because the second leading cause of divorce is financial issues, we are discussing financial accountability, joint accounts v. single accounts, the psychology of your financial upbringing, and everything in between.

What is Asset Protection? What may sound like legal jargon is actually a pretty simple idea. Tune in for this week’s episode as we talk about building a fortress, so to speak, around your assets – those valuable belongings such as stocks, cash, and your home. We’ll begin the episode with our Top 5 list of best movie fortresses. Then, we’ll dive into important questions like: What is an asset and why am I protecting it? Is insurance a type of asset protection? When would my assets be at risk? We’ve got a lot to cover and Cort has his legal cap on for the show.

The fees, expenses, and features of 529 plans can vary from state to state. 529 plans involve investment risk, including the possible loss of funds. There is no guarantee that a college-funding goal will be met. In order to be federally tax-free, earnings must be used to pay for qualified higher education expenses. The earnings portion of a nonqualified withdrawal will be subject to ordinary income tax at the recipient’s marginal rate and subject to a 10-percent penalty. By investing in a plan outside your state of residence, you may lose any state tax benefits. 529 plans are subject to enrollment, maintenance, and administration/management fees and expenses.

December 31, 2020

It’s New Year’s Eve and a fresh start is right around the corner. Not only are we wrapping up the insanity of 2020, but we are also wrapping up Season 1 of BullCast (thank you for tuning in for 30 episodes!) In this week’s mini-episode, we are discussing some of our most life-changing moments. Expectations are always high for the new year and rarely do things go as planned. Like us, the pivotal moments in your life probably happened on a random day when you were least expecting it. Life is uncomfortable at times, and it’s important to branch out, take a chance, and avoid regretting those missed opportunities. After all, life is short. Happy New Year, y’all!
