A financial empowerment podcast to inspire, inform, and encourage young and mid-career professionals to manage their money with confidence.


51: Break up with your bank

Most people never consider switching banks, but Damian and I have each had 7 different bank accounts. Our main motivator in switching banks is to earn more money, but there are other reasons as well.

We always look for a bank that offers a high yield savings account and one that does not charge fees to have a checking or savings account. Does your bank charge a fee for your checking and savings account, and are you getting the most out of your banking relationship? Listen to find out what we consider when choosing a bank and to hear the bank we're leaving and the one we're starting a new relationship with.
