Should I Diversify?

divers 2.jpg

We start the show this week with Pam from Texas who is already retired and wondering if it makes sense to start converting some of her traditional IRA assets?

Next up was Ann from Colorado who falls under the category of real estate rich and cash poor. Ann is making a killing in real estate, but she’s definitely in need of some diversification.

In hour two I’m joined by Dave Stachowiak, a long distance friend of mine (we still haven’t met in person!) and host of the popular Coaching for Leaders podcast, a show aimed at helping you discover leadership wisdom through insightful conversations.

The workplace landscape is full of people wondering:

  • What am I supposed to do to create a vision for my team?

  • How do I get better feedback from my stakeholders?

  • Where do I start in holding a difficult employee accountable?

  • When's the right time to make the next move in my career?

  • How can I successfully manage my former peers?

If that describes you, there is hope, as it's a myth that leadership skills can't be learned.

Almost nobody is a born leader. Most leaders learn how to lead through the school of hard knocks, good training, years of hard work, effective coaching, and great mentors.

It’s no surprise that the most effective leaders have always known that investing in their leadership skills will pay off, big time. That's why many leaders have invested in coaching, executive MBA programs, and conferences.

We all have the potential. Anyone can learn to lead teams, companies, non-profits, and especially their own family.

Should I Pay Down the Mortgage?

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

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.

Buy or Rent?

I'm all for owning real estate, but it's not something that makes sense in every situation. That's the discussion with Christine from New York, who with nearly $200,000 in the bank, is trying to decide if it makes sense to finally buy a home instead of being a renter.

CBS This Morning: Spring Housing Market

Last week, the Federal Reserve decided not to raise interest rates. The more dovish Fed outlook pushed down interest rates, which led mortgage rates to 14-month lows. The current 30-year fixed rate loan stands at just under 4.3 percent, just in time for the spring home buying season. I joined CBS This Morning to discuss.

First Time Home Buyer Tips 2019

First Time Home Buyer Tips 2019

Spring home buying season has arrived and with wages up, mortgage rates down and inventory slowly increasing, many first time buyers are ready to enter the market. Before you get sucked into the vortex of never-ending open houses (say goodbye to your weekends!), you need to guard against the emotional pull that real estate creates, especially for those who have never gone through the process before.
