Taking Stock – A New Book on The Scene



There’s a fantastic new book dropping on the scene next week and I have two copies to give away to you today!

It comes from podcaster, and (early) retired hospice doctor, Dr. Jordan Grumet:

“Taking Stock: A Hospice Doctor’s Advice on Financial Independence, Building Wealth, and Living a Regret-Free Life”

I haven’t cracked it open yet but it’s already making some waves in our community, and from what I hear will be one of the next Big Ones people pass around similar to JL Collins’ The Simple Path to Wealth and Morgan Housel’s Psychology of Money.

I had the pleasure of being on Doc G’s podcast last summer and really liked him a lot. Super chill, super genuine and super passionate. You could tell he *really* cares about this stuff and comes from a pretty unique background – caring for people who are dying!!

Here’s the episode I hopped on if you want to check it out later:

From Sexy to Rockstar to All-Star The Evolution of J Money

From Sexy to Rockstar to All-Star: The Evolution of J Money — In 2019, J. sold Budgets are Sexy for an undisclosed amount in the mid 6 figure range in part to spend more time with family and in 2020 launched a curation site for The Motley Fool titled All-Star Money. He is also a husband and proud father of three boys.

Look good? Want to read it?

I have TWO free copies to give away today, and all you have to do to be entered is to answer this question down below in the comments:

What’s one financial regret you wish you could erase in life?

Leave your answer below by the end of this weekend, and I’ll randomly select the two winners Monday morning! Good luck! It really does sound like an amazing book 🙂


I’ll play along too: my worst financial regret was buying our first house back in 2008 with 0% down and no budget… We were mentally and financially in no state to be buying a home back then, especially on a whim!, and a decade later when we sold we were still $15k underwater, ugh…

Of course, it did lead to this blog and alter my life for the better forever and ever and ever so can’t hate on it too much, haha, but financially it was definitely the worst decision of my 42 years… Pending the verdict at least of my bitcoins 😂

Your turn! Share away for a chance to win!
