Portland Finance, Business, and Economics:
Have you ever wondered about the economic situation of a particular city? I know that phrase “economic situation” gets thrown around a lot in regards to the country overall, but do you ever think about it in regards to Portland? Maybe you should start! Jesse gets asked questions about Portland’s economic issues often, which is why he’s positioned himself as Portland’s Money Guy!
IN THIS EPISODE YOU WILL LEARN:
- Jesse’s goals for the podcast and what weekly segments you can expect. On Mondays, he posts his weekly headline segments, where he brings you up to speed with the latest need-to-know news, and on Thursdays, he showcases interviews, similar to what I do here!
- How the PDX money podcast got started. Jesse thought that Portland lacked a good financial resource for news and what’s going on, specifically targeted toward the business and economic news of Portland.
- Jesse’s experience. He’s a financial advisor by day who got his start as a stockbroker eleven years ago. He needs to stay up-to-date on all of this news and these changes to do the best job for his clients, but instead of keeping it all in his head, he’s decided to share it with all of you through the podcast!
- A brief snapshot of Portland’s unique financial situation. Basically, there’s been massive growth and the city has been slow to meet this growth in a lot of ways, but there’s still good news: we’ve got a burgeoning tech scene and a lot of incredible creatives still calling the area home.
