OMGF Podcast Episode 1 – Be Prepared

If you couldn’t tell by now I like to talk. A lot. There’s a reason why so many of my posts top out at over 2000 words. Like most writers, I am very attached to the words I put on the page and think they are quite readable. However, I realize that there are people who prefer to take in information auditorily instead of visually. To them I say, “Your wish is my command.” In response to numerous requests, I am launching the Open Mouths Get Fed Podcast.

In Episode 1 I am joined by my friend Ivie Imoisili. On December 8 she made this Facebook post:

And with those words the OMGF Podcast went from, “I’ll think about it,” to “I’m definitely doing it. If you’ve been around these parts for a while you’ll know that I’m a big proponent of life insurance, emergency funds, and estate planning. Basically, I’m all about taking Scar’s advice.
be prepared

Ivie and I had a great time talking about why she made this post and how she got her financial house in order.

This inaugural episode was 100% self recorded and produced with a bit of help from YouTube (thanks to the friend who pointed me down the tutorial rabbit hole). Please let me know what you think. Your feedback will help me get better.

I hope you enjoy it, and as always the comments are your oyster.

  1. Yeah, you’ve got a natural podcast voice 🙂 Great first guest, too! Ivie’s mutual fund trick is a smart safety valve for her. Great tip. Keep it up, Liz!

  2. Love the podcast format, you are a natural! Your questions gave the interview a good flow, eliciting actionable financial preparedness information out of potential personal tragedy. And Ivie kicks butt!


  3. Agree, your friends gave you good constructive criticism…you have a great voice and are a natural speaker! Very easy to listen to.

    And what a strong gal for your first interview! I did like the business/financial components that tied in with her story…we were drawn in with that, then it just kept going, “Oh, i never thought of that…” when it related to her situation.

    You could do podcasts as you have a really good voice! Mr. DS has a sultry/sexy voice too that sounds great over the phone…(I don’t! I sound like I’m 5yrs old! So I have a deep respect for those that do!)…and I keep encouraging him to do radio, sports announcer or something. If ya got a gift to gab – share it!!


  4. Niiiiiice! Although “how do I turn of this stupid recording” was something you should’ve editted out! 😜

    I was nearly brought to tears listening to her talk about her mom trying to keep it together. It really resonated with me given Lorenzo’s health issues. It really underscores how precious yet precarious health can be. It took my brother-in-law’s best friend dying in a motorcycle accident for me to get life insurance. A couple years later, when my 28-year-old, healthy friend suddenly suffered a debilitating stroke, I added disability/dismemberment insurance. It’s very scary. That being said, I think your guest was very lucky to have such excellent health insurances, which many of us don’t have. I know my friend had to discontinue his physical therapy due to his insurance essentially running out. She was also obviously very prepared and well-funded with her savings and mutual fund. Definitely gonna look into getting one of those. And a 403b.

    Great interview! And with this I’m officially caught up on your blog!! 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾
