S02E01 – Going For Goals

00:00 / 31:41

Welcome to the second season of Penny Radio – Knowing Me, Knowing You!  This season we will be focusing on where we are now and where we ultimately want to be. In this first episode, Going For Goals, we’ll be taking a first look at what we want to achieve.

The sooner we start thinking about this, the more we can develop and refine this into achievable goals.  This is because setting goals can really be an ongoing process.  So as we go through this season and figure out our current position, we can do so with our aims in mind.  Figuring out where we currently are will really help us to think where we ultimately want to be.

S02E02 – Lost in Marks & Spencer’s

00:00 / 51:37

We kick off a deeper dive into our current position – something we will be exploring over the next few episodes. This will help us figure out our own starting point when it comes to planning for our financial futures. This really is step 1 of our financial framework. If you know where you currently are and you know where you want to get to, then you can start figuring out how to get there. Find out how this can help stop you from getting lost in Marks & Spencer’s when looking for biscuits. You know, those lovely round chocolatey ones!

Whenever we do look at our current situation we need to remember it really is only a snapshot or photograph of this current moment in time. Our situation is going to change over time and our financial framework will help us adapt to those changes.

Craig also regales us with memories of the 1998 World Cup, an interesting fact about Hartlepool diplomacy and makes some audacious claims about his gardening abilities!

Other biscuits at other retailers are also available, but Marks & Spencer’s ones are not just any biscuits…

S02E03 – Comings & Goings

00:00 / 48:50

On this episode of Penny Radio we take a look at all the comings and goings of our bank accounts. We discuss how tracking your spending can help build your financial framework and helps you see if you are heading in the right direction. Most importantly we tell you how to do it as well. Make sure you check out the Comings & Goings show notes to help you do this for yourself.
Craig tells us how craft beer is never too far away; the best place to buy coffee in Horsham; and how to waste time at work and get away with it. All whilst celebrating a rare win for Newcastle!
