TVS – Reflections and a Pause
TVS – Reflections and a Pause
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! I just got back from a wonderful trip to Japan and Taiwan, extremely jetlagged, as it’s 5am currently in New York. Alas, as this podcast episode name sounds, I am putting the podcast on an indefinite pause due to a combination of work, learning, and side projects (crypto & blockchain) that I am working. Looking back on this incredible journey, I can’t believe the amount of episodes and reach that my podcast has had. That feeling of impact, of creating something from scratch is something that I have felt in love with, something that I want to replicate in my career, which has opened up my eyes to entrepreneurship. This is definitely not the end, but the closing of a chapter and I hope that you all stay tuned with what I am working on next! Please continue to e-mail me and keep me updated on your success and journey! alan@thevampiresquid.com With love, Alan The post TVS – Reflections and a Pause appeared first on The Vampire Squid | Transparent Finance.

TVS 056 – Credit Score (Bethy Hardeman – Credit Karma)
Welcome to Episode 56 of The Vampire Squid! Today we have on Bethy Hardeman, Chief Consumer Advocate, at Credit Karma! I wish I had taken a personal finance course in high school / college so I would have a better understanding of why a credit score is important, and the levers that I could pull to increase my score. Today’s episode is packed with advice on your credit score as well as debunking some myths about your credit score. Hope you all enjoy! How did you get involved with Credit Karma and become the Chief Consumer Advocate? What are some of the inputs for a Credit Score, and what is it used for? Why your credit score isn’t just for credit cards What are the levers to pull to increase your credit score and to do it faster?   Can having too high of a credit limit be bad for your credit score? What are some of the other myths about your credit score that aren’t necessarily true? How are users of Credit Karma affected by the Equifax, if it all? Can opening too many credit cards be bad for your credit score? When should one close a credit card? What piece of advice would you leave my listeners with, especially ones in college or one or two jobs straight out of college?

Today, we are going to talk about one of my favorite hobbies, Poker!, and how that relates to investing and finance.
