Wondering what the heck is going on with GameStop? We’ll dedicate some time to explain everything from the beginning: why GameStop and Robinhood are in the news, what a short squeeze is and how it happens in real-time, why Robinhood (and other companies) stopped investors from buying GameStop stock, and more. Of course, we’ll also take on the obvious question: should you invest your cash in GameStop stock?
Could the “Work till you drop, I’ll sleep when I’m dead” mentality actually be costing you more than you think? After we finish our explanation on all things GameStop, we’ll share an interview we loved so much we had to play it for you here. Despite what we may say, many of us love to stay busy. Be it at work, with our personal lives, our volunteering on the weekends: staying on go is good. But, slowing down and choosing priorities with more purpose can have surprising results in your life. Expanding on that point, we’ll play an interview between Mike Carruthers, host of the Something You Should Know podcast, and business psychologist Tony Crabbe.
During today’s Haven Life line we’ll take a question from Andrew. He’s 26 with an index universal life insurance policy that comes with a hefty $500 premium. Andrew asks us: is it smart to continue paying on this policy for future retirement, or should he close it and look at better options?
As always, we’ll save some time for Doug’s trivia. You’ll love it all! We love you! Enjoy!

- Today there are 9 justices sitting on the court, but how many justices were there back in 1790?
- Andrew pays a $500 premium for his index universal life insurance policy. He asks: should he continue paying the premium, or find something a little more affordable?
