#140 - Matt Manero talks about why "You Need More Money

Matt launched his first company, Commercial Fleet Financing, Inc. (CFF), in 1995 with a phone, a folding table and the unyielding confidence of a single client, a trucker. Fast forward 23 years and CFF, has funded over $1 billion in transportation equipment with annual business of $150,000,000+. CFF has served more than 10,000 clients and has become one of the largest independently owned transportation equipment finance companies in America.  CFF is a 3-time winner of The SMU Cox School of Business 100 Fastest Growing Companies.  His companies have been recognized in publications such as Inc. Magazine, Dallas Business Journal, Overdrive Magazine, Fleet Owner, Transport Topics, Commercial Carrier Journal, and Dealer Solutions Magazine.

In this episode of the Be Real Show, Matt and Travis open up the show discussing some recent losses in their lives.  Then, Matt tells us about his company, Commercial Fleet Financing, his latest book release, and his business finishing school event.  Matt reveals how he used to live on 8,000 dollars a year and was utterly astonished when he managed to save 10,000 dollars.  We find out why everyone needs more money because most of America would have a hard time taking out 1,000 dollars.  Matt says to dig into some Dave Ramsey stuff even though it is a little outdated.  Forty percent of your income should be saved to make up for what you didn’t keep in your twenties.  Also, Matt suggests paying off credit cards and student loan debts before investing.  Later, Matt sits in the Be Real Show’s hot seat.
