Welcome to our Wednesday rewind show! With so much job uncertainty going around right now, the Fintern decided now would be a good time to revisit a great interview we had with freelance extraordinaire Vincent Pugliese. Vincent took himself from a mountain of debt to a successful freelance business, and shared with us his stories, lessons, and experiences he learned along the way. You can read the original show notes below:
He had $140,000 in debt, a crappy paying job, and a baby on the way. What would Vincent Pugliese do? We ask the award-winning photographer that very question on today’s show. He’s photographed four Presidents and every major sport’s national championship in the USA, but his debt story will have you shaking your head today.
Plus, in our headlines segment, health savings accounts are all the rage, but what’s going on with all of this money sitting in cash? We’ll address that AND talk about new tax law spurring 401k contributions.
We’ll of course have more from the world of financial planning, throw out the Haven Life line to lucky listener Chris, who wonders, “Should a 20 year old hire a financial advisor?” Of course, we’ll still score with some of Doug’s delightful trivia, and more.
