can I retire?

Preserving My Assets

assets2.png

We start things off with Bob from Philadelphia who is concerned about preserving his assets. Having witnessed many of his colleagues struggle since the 2008 financial crisis, he wants to make sure the same doesn’t happen to him.

We then went to John from North Carolina who is trying to figure out what to do with a good chunk of extra cash now that his wife has gone back to work full-time. That’s what I like to call a good problem to have.

The email trend continues in hour two. Another good problem to have.

Joe from Washington starts us off this week with a good problem to have. His wife basically hit the jackpot with a cookbook she wrote. Now they have royalties coming in and don’t know what they should be doing with them. Interested in the book? Check it out here.

The email marathon in hour two continues!

Figuring out the Retirement Number

tax 2.jpg

So you’re planning for retirement and have a pretty good handle on your expenses and what you think you’ll need to live on when you hang it up. You even know what your ballpark Social Security estimate is. But what about Uncle Sam? How does one factor taxes into the retirement equation? That’s how we started the show this week with Heather from Denver.

More emails in hour two. This week and likely next and then we may be caught up! But for how long is the million dollar question…

Kristy Shen and Bryce Leung retired with a million dollars in their early 30s, and did it without hitting a home run on the stock market, starting the next Snapchat in a garage, or investing in hot real estate. 

Learn how to cut down on spending without decreasing your quality of life, build a million-dollar portfolio, fortify your investments to survive bear markets and black-swan events, and use the 4 percent rule and the Yield Shield, so you can quit the rat race forever.

Can We Retire Early?

Happy Labor Day!

retire 2.jpg

Speaking of labor, we kick off the holiday edition of the show with Michael from New York who at age 47 is looking to retire within the next four years, if not sooner! Early retirement has certainly been a running theme throughout 2019.

Next up was Steve from Cleveland who is unfortunately dealing with the sudden loss of his father and trying to help his mother navigate her finances now that everything is unexpectedly on her plate.

More emails in hour two. We’ll start mixing in some interviews by mid-September.

Enjoy the long weekend!

How to Avoid Making Dumb Financial Decisions

Here’s my presentation from the World Domination Summit as I talked about two main emotions that effect our relationship with money — greed and fear. I reminded the WDS 2020 audience that we have the power to control and take action even when we feel these emotions and that we don’t have to make dumb decisions when it comes to money.

Should I Pay Down the Mortgage?

We’re talking housing as we kick off the latest show!

Housing3.jpg

We start with Mariana from the Bay Area who is hoping to buy her first house in the near future. What steps should she be taking to make sure she has all her ducks in a row once she finds her dream home?

Next up was Nick, also from the Bay Area, who is wondering if he should accelerate his mortgage payments. This is such a common question and the answer isn’t always as obvious as it might seem.

More emails in hour two. We made a legit dent, and were actually caught up for a bit, but the inbox is once again overflowing. With a show that runs just once a week it’s hard to keep up.

Saving for Flexibility

freedom 2.jpg

It seems like this year has been all about the FIRE movement: Financial Independence, Retire Early. But the more I hear about it, the more I realize that it's not so much about retiring early as it is about having options down the road. That's the case this week with Stacy from Indiana who is socking away a ton of money in order to have options. Where should she be putting her savings?

Should I Pay Off the Car Loan Early?

debt 2.jpg

We start the show this week with Devin from Pittsburgh who is wondering if it makes sense for him to use some of his cash savings to pay off his car loan. Sounds like a no brainer, right?

Next up was Katie from Omaha, who’s wants to start increasing her retirement savings, but isn’t sure which is the best vehicle to use. A deferred comp option? Backdoor Roth? Or a plain old brokerage account?

The email purge continues in hour two. We’re making a pretty good dent and hope to be caught by early September.
