Roth Conversion and Rent vs Buy

roth 2.jpg

We start the show this weekend with a call from Mike in the midwest who is wondering if it makes sense to start converting some of his traditional IRA money into a Roth.

Next up was Alan from the Bay Area with a question that never gets old: should I rent or should I buy? That’s the decision facing Alan and his wife.

The recent trend continues as hour two is nothing but emails as we continue to dig out from an overflowing inbox.

Financial Freedom with Grant Sabatier

Money is unlimited. Time is not. Become financially independent as fast as possible.

In 2010, 24-year old Grant Sabatier woke up to find he had $2.26 in his bank account. Five years later, he had a net worth of over $1.25 million, and was known as "the Millennial Millionaire."

By age 30, he had reached financial independence. Along the way he uncovered that most of the accepted wisdom about money, work, and retirement is either incorrect, incomplete, or so old-school it's obsolete.

On the show to discuss his brand new book, Financial Freedom: A Proven Path to All the Money You Will Ever Need, Sabatier delivers a step-by-step path to make more money in less time, so you have more time for the things you love.
 

The book challenges the accepted narrative of spending decades working a traditional 9 to 5 job, pinching pennies, and finally earning the right to retirement at age 65, and instead offers readers an alternative: forget everything you've ever learned about money so that you can actually live the life you want.

Financial Freedom is not merely a laundry list of advice to follow to get rich quick, it's a practical roadmap to living life on one's own terms, as soon as possible.

Millions of Americans could receive smaller checks after filing their 2018 tax returns. The average refund is down more than 8 percent compared to the same time last year, according to the IRS. I joined CBS This Morning to clear up some of the confusion.

Selling to Pay Down Loans

When does it make sense to sell an asset to accelerate the student loan pay down process? What if you have a rental property out there while you're still trying to pay off some significant loans. Should you sell the house and wipe out the loans? That's the discussion on the latest call with Stephen.

The recent stock market volatility has made it an even trickier time for people to manage their money.

I joined NPRs Here and Now to discuss my new book, "The Dumb Things Smart People Do with Their Money: Thirteen Ways to Right Your Financial Wrongs,” and to offer some advice on how to avoid some of the common pitfalls, based on a wide range of mistakes I’ve seen in my experience as a Certified Financial Planner and host of the “Jill on Money” radio show and podcast.
