Whether for holidays, office events, or social get-togethers, December feels like the official month of parties. If you’ve ever thought about hosting your own event, whether this month or any other, you can feel the need to break the bank so that your guests feel special. But what if you could host a better event without emptying your wallet? That’s why today we’re thrilled to help you create your best event with the help of an extra special guest: celebrity party planner David Tutera. We’ll talk invitations, decorations, food, activities and games, plus parting gifts and LOTS more. You’ll feel better prepared to be a great host after today’s show!
Plus, during our headlines, Fidelity Investments is out with their look at 2020. What are savers hoping for in the New Year? We’ll help you jump start your New Year’s Resolutions with the help of Maura Cassidy, Vice President of Retirement & Small Business at Fidelity Investments about the takeaways. You may be surprised by some of this year’s findings AND some of the takeaways. Also, we’ll cover a piece from Barron’s about the impending stock market downturn. Should you begin making adjustments for the big drop that might be just around the corner?
Later we’ll throw out the Haven Life Line to Mark, who only keeps one month of his emergency savings liquid. The other five months of savings are in a 15 month CD with his bank. Is he making a mistake if a “real” emergency were to come up?
Of course, we’ll save some time for Doug’s trivia.
