What important steps do you need to roll smoothly into retirement? Joining us to share her newly updated strategies about healthcare, social security, taxes, budgeting, and more, we welcome the author of The 5 Years Before You Retire, Emily Guy Birken.
Uh-oh! Another company is in hot water for employing some shady business practices… at least according to one state Attorney General. The catch? The Timeshare-Exit company had, until recently, been a sponsor of the Dave Ramsey show. While that’s relevant, we don’t think you should invest in any company that doesn’t fit in your financial plan… whether it’s sanctioned by Dave, the guys in Mom’s Basement, or anyone else. More on that in the show.
How have our priorities and attitude towards money changed? Rob Williams, Vice president of Financial Planning at Schwab, joins us to share some data from the company’s newest survey.
How do you turn your side business into a business? We tackle that question for Mac, who’s interested in making some Benjamins from his brewing hobby. He asks: what does he need to know?
Of course, Doug also gets his share of air time.
We couldn’t bring you three shows a week without our sponsors!
