Episode 28: Resolutions

December 17, 2020

As we wrap up the year, one thing is on all of our minds: resolutions. Whether that be hitting the gym, eating healthier, or just bettering yourself in general, resolutions are notoriously hard to maintain. This week, we are starting off the episode with a new segment we call Twitter Nuggs where we read some of the funniest tweets on resolutions. In this episode, we’ll also talk about where the tradition came from, why we make resolutions, and why – for the most part – they fail. Stay strong in 2021 and accomplish those goals you set, friends!

Episode 27: Charitable Giving

Episode 27: Charitable Giving

December 10, 2020

If you listen closely, you can hear Santa ringing the bell for The Salvation Army. That’s right! It’s December – the season of giving – so what better time to talk about Charitable Giving? This week, Katie and Cort will be breaking down the psychology behind giving. Yes, it does make us feel all warm and fuzzy inside when we donate, but there is so much more to it. Also, in this episode, we will talk about smart giving (don’t become a charity case when giving to charities!), tax benefits, types of gifts, and the importance of giving. Don’t let that nasty Covid Grinch keep you from giving to those in need this year!
