CCC040: What’s Your Legacy?


Last week, I attended my wife’s grandfather’s funeral. Next week, I’m expecting my first grandson. It put me in mind to think about my legacy.

I hope my legacy is that I will have created a cash car revolution. That my audience will grow. I will be covered by local and national media and my message spreads. I will give a TED talk, because I have an idea worth spreading.

It also made me think about the legacy of my listeners. Are you leaving the legacy you want to? If not, what would you change?

I would encourage you to dump debt and leave a legacy of living responsibly and the freedom that it brings.

I took the ALS Ice Bucket challenge this past week. I challenged three of my friends to the challenge as well. Ellory Wells, Steve Stewart, and Jared Easly.

I would entourage you to check out the cause and make your own donation big or small. Whatever you can afford.

I also moderated a great panel on how to land amazing guests on your podcast at the Podcast Movement conference  this past weekend. The other panelist were amazing. They shared some great tips with the audience and we received great feedback. The other panelist were Ellory Wells, Christina Canters, Chris Cerrone, and Veron Ross. Tremendous people.

Lastly in this episode, I detail my 3 year cost to own my 2006 Ford F-150 truck. I have put 44,000 miles on this truck in the last 3 years.

Total acquisition cost tax and fees included: $14,957

Total gasoline purchased: $9,826

Total repairs, maintenance, and fees: $2,944 (Includes $800 for tires and $400 for brakes.

I hope this will show you can drive a used car and not spend a lot on maintenance and repairs.
