Olympian and distance running star Kara Goucher joins us to share explosive details involving Alberto Salazar, the disgraced coach of the Elite Nike Running Team. She also shares her history of money and transitioning from running for fun to running for money…and then the triumphant battle back to running for joy. It’s a story about greed, power, disturbing abuse, and more (doping, NCAA violations…), and yet is still an uplifting, empowering story.
Plus, in today’s headlines, we dig into a piece from the Wall Street Journal that goes over signs that the long-running hot job market may finally be showing signs of cooling off. We’ll also go over a piece from Indeed.com about best practices to find a job (in case you’d forgotten). What does the cooling job market mean for you and your stack of Benjamins? Doug has some sports apparel-related trivia. And today’s Haven Lifeline call discusses the pros and cons of rolling over pre-tax and Roth 401(k) balances from a previous employer to traditional and Roth IRAs while still early in your career. Be sure to listen to today’s show!
Deeper dives with curated links, topics, and discussions are in our newsletter, The 201, available at StackingBenjamins.com/201.
