We end the year with how spending  around this time is so stressful because of ignorance, obligations or just commitment. We kinda give some ideas when and why spending should be smart, strategic and needful.   Also the dumb commitment of New Years resolutions.  Is there a good way of following goals other than national holidays? We use our myth buster segement to relate to the Origins of New years resolutions from further back than most would imagine.

This episode of  M3 Chaz and I join another member from the "Welcome to the Wall" crew to discuss a smart and ambitious investment of owning a home together.  We talk budgeting and how to separate cost within one household.  Good talk for anyone entertaining roommates.

Tonight Chaz and I discuss investments people can look at as an alternative to savings accounts. We discuss stocks, mutual funds, money markets, CD's and just options other than sitting your money in an account that will only give you less than 0.5%.   Some of the Welcome to the wall crew joins us to discuss financial options early in their life.

Today Chaz and I  return to our financial series with revisiting plans we helped Jermey with on our last Financial episode.  The major long term goals we had Jermeey addressing were A new bank account, a credit card and what would be his new living arrangement (purchase and renting).  We get something totally unexpected but hold on to hope that our advice would not fall on deaf ears.

This episode of Women Tech talk, Alicia and I go over the new calling features of the existing Amazon Echo devices as well as throw our opinions on the two new products Amazon has introduced to the market before Google or Apple had a chance to introduce any improvements or products during their conferences (Google I/O and Apples WWDC). Amazons new products are the Echo Look  a camera enabled device for fashion and the Echo Show that has a tablet size screen attached to it.   

We also put our two cents into the "Whole Foods" acquisition and what does it mean to the grocery market in the future. Whole Foods Market was acquired by Amazon June 16, 2017 at 13.7 billion dollars

Today Chaz and I talk about the importance of healthy eating and working with a budget that would not kill your paycheck. We talk about bulk shopping (Sam's, Costco's, B.J's) and Organic buying with specialty markets (farmers markets, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Sprouts, Fresh Market).  With the fast pace of millineals in this era.  They need options in order to budget their paycheck, reduce the chance of getting sick and how do you add eating to your enjoyment.

On todays Women tech talk, Alicia and I talk about the new features of Google assistant and Google home that she got to experience while she was at Google I/O.  This was a good effort Google showed better thanthe previous year and a good challenge to the other two major players in the assistant realm (Alexa, Siri) as well as the home automation market.  We not only have a google home now but we both downloaded the the google assistant on our Iphones as well.

This is the first time in a long time I can become a tech lover and not a follower of just Apple products.  Should be a very enlightening conversation from Apple fans.
