Inflation: How It Impacts You & How to Prep Your Money 2023

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room – inflation. You hear about inflation everywhere and feel it every time you fill up your car at the gas station or pop into the store to buy some food. Inflation is currently around 7.7%, which is the highest it has been since the early 1980s, and it looks like it’s here to stay much longer than Pumpkin Spiced Lattes. You might be asking, who benefits from inflation and where’s my inflation relief? It’s not all bad though – higher inflation typically means higher interest rates on your savings accounts which will have your emergency fund singing hallelujah for a change. So I went to my fellow podcaster, Chris Browning, host of the award-winning short-form podcast Popcorn Finance to join us for a conversation all about inflation. This episode isn’t filled with boring stats, instead, Chris shares thought-provoking details like the psychology behind inflation, a deep dive into potential pros for inflation, and the exact steps you need to take to set your money up in 2023 to help combat inflation. Grab a beverage, sit back, and let’s start talkin’.
