Episode 111: Money Scripts (Part 1)

July 21, 2022

This week, we are furthering our conversation on money-related behaviors by talking about Money Scripts. These beliefs are the basis for much of the ineffective or self-destructive financial behavior that are part of a person’s resistance to change. And speaking of scripts, we are going off-script in this episode as Katie asks some tough questions to Cort and Cam about their unbiased opinions on wealth – whether it be the excess or lack of it. We’ll start the show with our list of the top summer blockbuster movies because, ya know, scripts… Then, we’ll explore the idea of awareness in your financial life, how trauma can change your perception of money, and how these “scripts” can easily become habits that rule your life.

Episode 110: Financial Infidelity

July 14, 2022

In what may be our most salaciously-titled episode yet, we will be discussing hiding money from your partner. We’ll kick off the show with our list of the top movies involving characters being untruthful about finances, then we’ll jump into this behavioral finance topic. In what can be credited as a “money disorder,” financial infidelity can release a floodgate of problems for a couple – whether they’re married or not. Financial infidelity can be as destructive as its sexual counterpart, and giving into lying about your financial situation can have dire consequences. Join Katie, Cort and Cam as they discuss the signs of financial infidelity, stats about money-related secrecy, and how to deal with the emotions that accompany this betrayal.

Episode 107: Mental Accounting

June 23, 2022

This week we are furthering our discussion on behavioral finance by talking about mental accounting. This concept boils down to the different values a person places on the same amount of money. Mental accounting often leads people to make irrational investment decisions and behave in detrimental ways, so we are breaking down the different advantages and disadvantages. We’ll start with our list of top psychiatrists portrayed in movies and tv shows, then we’ll discuss mental accounting bias, examples of mental accounting, and overall illogical decisions with finances.

June 16, 2022

This week we are furthering our discussion on risk with respect to your investments. We’ll start the show with our list of movie characters who took big risks that paid off. Then, we’ll discuss inflation rate risk, portfolio diversification, time in the market versus timing the market, and dollar-cost averaging. As with every episode of BullCast, investment education is imperative. Avoid investments that you don’t fully understand, rely on recommendations from a professional (your fiduciary partner), don’t put all of your eggs in one basket, and remember: “A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.”

Then, we’ll get right down to the nitty-gritty, starting with the basics of risk. What is it, really? What are the types of financial risk? And why does portfolio diversification play such a strong role in avoiding risk? As a wise man once said, “If you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.”

Episode 104: Making Lemonade from Lemons

June 2, 2022

In what we are dubbing our self-help episode, we’re posing the question, “what is going well?” Inspired by motivational speaker and author, Greg Bell, this question is a lot tougher to answer than its adverse counterpart. We’ll kick off the episode with our list of the most negative characters in pop culture. Then, Katie and Cam will dive into the idea of negativity driving human behavior. Why is it so easy to talk about what is going wrong in our lives? Why is it cathartic to play the victim card? And why is it so difficult to look on the bright side and smell the roses? Don’t miss this episode as we discuss the importance of recognizing the source of goodness in our lives and appreciating the daily blessings that surround us, no matter our circumstances.

Episode 103: What the Heck is Inflation?

Inflation is one of those buzzwords that we see every time we log on to Facebook or turn on the news – especially in today’s climate. But inflation is a lot more than just “something being really expensive.” Join us as we uncover the idea of too many dollars chasing too few goods and services. We’ll give you a list of crazy facts about inflation, define in layman’s terms what inflation is, talk about what drives it, and discuss who benefits from it. Ronald Reagan couldn’t have said it any better when he stated, “inflation is as violent as a mugger, as frightening as an armed robber, and as deadly as a hitman.”
