Want to succeed? You need to stay focused. Studies show the amount of alcohol and food we consume skyrockets during the holidays, and Memorial Day is no exception. While few people contest the negative impacts of a few beers or scarfing down the third burger, the science is a bit more muddied (or at least most people think it is) when it comes to other beverages like wine, coffee, and juice. Where’s the truth lie, and which drinks are going to keep us healthy, happy, and productive?
Dr. Alexis Willett joins us for our Memorial Day episode to share the truth behind the drinks we know, love, and rely on, but we won’t be the ones during the interviewing. Stepping into Joe’s seat for this special show is Mike Carruthers, host of the Something You Should Know podcast.
Could patience save you a stack of Benjamins on you home? During our headlines we share why homebuyer sentiment is at a 10-year low AND why the sky won’t stop falling. Here’s a freebie for those of you still in the market: appreciate the silver lining that your 50k offer over asking and waived inspection was rejected by the seller. Plus, Bitcoin is falling heavily. (Or it is right now anyway…could be skyrocketing by the time you read this. Who knows?) In our second piece, we discuss the issues behind a prospective currency crashing, going through the roof, flat-lining, and crashing again both as a currency AND an investment.
What retirement options are available for business owners? During the Haven Life Line we share the options available to the self-employed. Our caller is discouraged by the $6,000 Roth IRA contribution limit, and is looking for options with higher caps. While this isn’t necessarily an “either/or” issue, we give the round of choices to caller Erin.
Of course, we always make some time for Doug’s trivia. Enjoy!
