A million and one money decisions in a day…how the hell do you make the right one???? Between social media and the internet, f— me, there are countless tips and “advice” from strangers on how to manage your money, but absolutely ZERO are really tailored to you. In the basement, we know that information can be powerful if used correctly, and that’s exactly why we invited Jean Chatzky and Kathryn Tuggle here today. In their new book (it’s geared toward women, but everyone can benefit from it), they talk about the power of information and making informed decisions for our present and future selves. They talk to us about pillars of success, and how you can finally feel more empowered out in the open about your money decisions.
During our headline segment, we’ll answer the burning question: “why does my advisor never text me?” It’s not because they don’t like you. FINRA, one of the two major regulatory agencies, doesn’t allow it. We talk about why and the opposite effect it tends to have from the rationale behind it. We also answer Katie’s question on the Haven Life line about where to save additional money each month. And Doug will share his amazing trivia.
