What do you do when things seem to be going well in your life, but none of it is what you want? You pivot, and then you adjust your financial life. That’s what happened in Kim Anderson’s life, not once, but…we’ll let her tell the story on today’s show!
We also will discuss headlines about how wealthy people think about money. Do you share these traits? Also, we’ll tackle a new rule around medical bills and credit. What happens when you have overdue medical bills? Now you’ll be able to fight harder to have your credit restored. You’ll want to hear about all of these rule changes on today’s show.
We’ll also throw out the Haven Life Line to Alan, who wonders about the rule of 72. How can you use it for better planning? Plus we’ll answer a letter from Ryan, whose parents want him to help advise them about financial decisions. Should he do it?

We answer letters as fast as we can, and it seems like we always have a pile of them sitting on the kitchen table. Joe’s mom gets a bit angry about not having her knitting space, so we decided it’s high time for another letters episode.
