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.

Selling to Pay Down Loans

debt 2.jpg

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.

How To Avoid Common Money Mishaps

herer.jpg

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.

Are We on Track for Retirement?

A little housekeeping before we get started:

My very first book came out this past week!!! I’m so excited and grateful for all the support I’ve received along the way. Here’s a quick clip from CBS This Morning that dives into the details of what it’s all about:

I you want a copy, you can order it HERE.

Now onto the show…

We kicked things off this week with Sean from Houston. With two grown kids out of the picture, Sean wanted to know if he and his wife are on track for retirement. Are they doing enough or should they be doing more?

Next up was Roger from Buffalo. Thanks to a few defined benefit plans, and some great savings along the way, Roger and his wife are in amazing shape. They definitely get the gold star of the day.

Just like we’ve been doing, hour two was nothing but listener emails as we continue to get bombarded.

The Art and Science of Social Media with Cynthia Johnson

When it comes to the world of social media, I guess you could say that I see it as a necessary evil.

While I do see the value in it, by no means have I perfected it. That said, there are people who dominate the social media landscape. They’re known as “influencers.”

Today on the show we have one of the original influencers, Cynthia Johnson.

With nearly two million Twitter followers, Johnson has become known as the go-to expert on all things branding when it comes to the various social media platforms.

Hence the name of her newly released book, Platform: The Art and Science of Personal Branding

Platform is the why-to, how-to handbook for everyone who wants to develop and manage a personal brand. 

In Platform, Johnson explains the process of going from unknown to influencer by achieving personal proof, social proof, recognition, and association. Johnson herself went from an on-staff social media manager to social media influencer, entrepreneur, and marketing thought-leader in just three years using her process of accelerated brand development, continuous brand management, and strategic growth. 

If you’ve ever wondered how your favorite influencers found their voices and built their audiences, you will find the answers here and discover that the process is technical, creative, tactical, and much easier than they might have expected.

Are We Ready for Retirement

Retirement7.jpg

On the latest bonus call we've got Jeff from North Carolina who is looking to wind things down over the next 3-5 years. Considering they're in their mid 50s, are he and his wife in good shape or should they call an audible?

What to Do with Extra Money ?

money 2.jpg

I guess it’s appropriate that we’re starting the Super Bowl edition of the show with a call from Mary in New England, who is no doubt a Patriots fan.

But she’s also a fan of her finances, hence the call to us. With some extra money coming in, and a fear of the stock market, how should she be planning?

Again, no guest in hour two as we try to make a dent in the email pile. It’s probably going to be like this until June or July.

The CEO of Boxed and What Matters to Him

It’s only January but we already have an early candidate for interview of the year.

His name is Chieh Huang, and he’s the CEO of Boxed, an online and mobile membership-free wholesale retailer that offers direct delivery of bulk-sized packages.

Founded in 2013, there’s really one simple idea behind Boxed: make shopping for bulk easy, convenient and fun, so you can focus on the things that really matter.  

But there’s much more going on behind the scenes, especially in the HR department, and that’s really what got me interested in having this conversation.

As companies large and small define and redefine the American workplace, cultivating a mission-driven culture has taken hold among America’s most successful startups. This culture is not just about free snacks and nap rooms - it is about creating an environment where feedback is not just encouraged but actively sought by upper management.

How do companies make this happen? What can you do in yours to cultivate a mission-driven culture?

Chieh Huang has such a refreshing perspective when it comes to his employees that it’s hard not to be a fan. 

More companies need to follow his lead.
