If the FIRE movement is so inspirational, why is it constantly under attack? More heat was lobbed at the early retirement movement last week by a couple of industry insiders on Twitter. To help us, we welcome the FIRE-y woman behind the Fiery Millennials blog, Gwen Merz, Len Penzo from Len Penzo dot com, and the wonderful Doc G from the What’s Up Next podcast! These intelligent, retirement-focused people will be discussing the tweet that started quite the firestorm.
If you or anyone you know has student loans, you’ll want to listen to our Friday FinTech guest, Michael Bloch. He’s the CEO and Founder of Pillar which is an app to help you pay back your student loans and save money. Early users have reported some huge wins, so we had to get the details from Michael about how it works.
And finally, during our MagnifyMoney call in segment we will answer a question from an anonymous woman on how she will be affected by inheriting a ROTH IRA.
As always, we’ll quiz our contributors with an epic game show question about National Beer Can Appreciation Day from our neighbor, Doug. We’ll have all that and more on today’s show! We hope you can join the fun!
