Before helping all you budding wannabe Silicon Valley entrepreneurs out there, we did a little retirement planning in hour one. First we helped Pat in Virginia who’s in a unique situation. Based on his calculations, Pat figures he’ll actually earn MORE in retirement than he does now. Given this unusual scenario, Pat is wondering how he can start to minimize the tax hit and if using a Roth 401k is a good place to start. Next up was John from Georgia who is preparing for retirement and isn’t quite sure how to handle the RMDs from his various accounts.
Are you an entrepreneur? Or does your soon to be graduating child have dreams of going to Silicon Valley and becoming the next Mark Zuckerberg? Let’s be honest…these days, you don’t have to go to California to become a successful entrepreneur. To help hammer home that point we had a quick chat with Michael Moe, author of The Global Silicon Valley Handbook.The book is written to be a fun, yet factual guide to thrive not only in Silicon Valley, but in the emerging Global Silicon Valley.Silicon Valley has become synonymous with big ideas, start-ups, and inventing the future. But today, the magic of Silicon Valley has gone viral and global. From Austin to Boston, from Shanghai to Dubai, a Global Silicon Valley is emerging.Michael maps out an insider’s guide to Silicon Valley and the hottest emerging markets from around the world. The book highlights need-to-knows, including who the top VCs and angel investors are, phrases to avoid in a pitch, or even where to close a deal over dinner or beers.So when you strike it big and become a billionaire, don’t forget about us here on the Jill on Money show!
