Today, we are taking questions from you!
We asked you what keeps you up at night and what’s been on your mind and you responded with some fantastic questions.
Some of the topics we explore in today’s episode include:
- Saving for retirement after you have maxed out your company plan (i.e. 401k, 457, 403b)
- Whole life insurance and why it’s probably not a good savings tool
- The power of the HSA (Health Savings Account)
- Bitcoin and cowboy accounts
- Buying versus renting a home
We love getting questions! If you have something on your mind, send it on over to us.
