There are, however, a few negotiating tips and tricks that can help you beat the fear and find the courage to ask. One of them? The Anchoring Bias.

Homebuying 101: The 20% Rule
 
05:05
Get the book: www.thegetmoneybook.com You asked for it, so here it is: A five-part series on the basics of buying a home, from saving for the down payment to navigating lenders. This week: How big should your down payment be? 20% is a general rule of thumb, and in this video, I explain why. One important thing I want to add: The 20% rule is not the only rule of thumb you should follow. Deciding your home's affordability goes beyond down payment. Make sure you can afford your monthly mortgage payment and all of the other expenses that go into buying a home. Make sure those costs aren't going to stretch you too thin financially. And make sure you're still able to save for retirement and for your future goals.

When Debt Wrecks Your Mental Health

Most of our financial struggles aren't due to a lack of knowledge. Basic financial literacy isn't as hard as you might think. For most of us, it's the emotional side of money that trips us up, and this is especially true when it comes to debt. In this video, I talk to Melanie Lockert of DearDebt.com. She's also the founder of the Lola Retreat, a weekend money retreat for self-identified women. For the past two years, she's also organized the Suicide Prevention blog tour (I contributed a post this year, I'll leave it below). Melanie talks about Lola, how debt can destroy your mental health, and what actionable steps you should take when you feel overwhelmed. This is not a sponsored post or an ad – I genuinely think what Melanie is doing is awesome, and I don't see many personal finance experts talking about this, so I asked to interview her.

How to Balance Your Freelance Work With a Job
 
04:29
Today, I answer a viewer question: How do you balance your freelance work with a part-time job? I suggest a few specific habits that helped me, but generally, I think it comes down to being strategic with your time. Especially if you're trying to transition from a part-time or full-time job to freelancing for yourself, you have to be picky about the gigs you take on. It's tempting to say yes to everything, and perhaps when you're just starting out you should, but eventually, it's about playing the long game. A friend once suggested 3 questions for deciding on a gig (this is not mentioned in the video): • Will I enjoy the work? • Does it pay • Will I develop a new skill or learn something from this? His rule of thumb was, if you can answer at least 2 out of 3 questions with a "yes," then you should take the gig. Otherwise, you're wasting your time.
