Ever wish you had better habits? Whether you’re not getting out of bed for that morning run, or you stay up too late before an important meeting in the morning, or you can’t stop breaking the budget – we’ve all asked ourselves, “why did I do that AGAIN?” Dr. Joseph Cardillo, best-selling author of multiple books on the intersection of mindfulness and health not only knows the answer to that, he’s sharing the solution on today’s show! In his new book, 12 Rules of Attention, Dr. Cardillo goes through easy-to-follow steps on how you can stop bad habits in their tracks, AND how to trick your brain into establishing habits that’ll make you a superstar in whatever area of your life you wish to improve.
Britney Spears is back in the news. In our headlines segment we’ll review how her father has served as her conservator for twelve years (taking care of Spears’ money), and now the pop star wants him out. So, what does it mean to have a conservator? How can someone make sure everything is on the up-and-up? We’ll share that and recall one famous conservator horror story which saw one extremely rich widow fight homelessness. Plus, what’s a headlines segment without talking about money and video games? Today we’ll also cover the beef between Apple and Epic Games. It’s…wait for it…pretty….epic.
We’ll also throw out the Haven Life line today to listener Shane, who was notified by Turbotax that because he already contributes to his 401k, he won’t receive any tax benefit for his IRA. Shane asks: because he doesn’t receive a tax advantage now and he’s contributing post-tax money, will the money be tax-free when he withdraws it? Is there a good reason to keep contributing to his IRA?
As always, we’ll of course save some time for Doug’s trivia, who’s keeping his Independence Day questions going strong. Enjoy!
