This week's podcast features Keith, his father Ken, and Ken's shoe care tips. While they do talk about shoes (including what you should buy for a recent graduate and the importance of shoe trees), it's really about taking care of things: buy well-made products, take care of them and they'll last forever.
Keith and Mitch have a conversation about their experiences with making a career change; both of them have backgrounds outside of financial planning. They discuss motivations behind making a career change, planning & networking to make the career change actually occur, additional education & training requirements, and (potentially) financial considerations. Lastly, Milwaukee's Polish Moon is discussed. Don't know what it is? Listen to find out.

Clint speaks with Israel Lopez, an entrepreneur that has a great story overcoming adversity. Once homeless, Israel was on his own at an early age yet still managed to play college football, graduated college, and went on to law school at UW-Madison. After graduation, he worked as a lawyer and found an interest in technology startup companies. Israel's most recent project is Politiscope, an app that strives to give a balanced view of legislation and politics. Israel discusses the process around raising money for startups, and the challenges he faces in growing an idea into an app and taking it all the way to exit.
