Welcome to a rewind episode of the Stacking Benjamins show! After 8 weeks of bringing you exciting, informative, and diverse shows we take a week to reflect and refresh so we can stay at the top of our game. Taking time to let your mind rest is important for anyone, and as much as we love podcasting, we’re no exception. During our week of R&R we queue up some of our favorite shows we’ve released and hope to bring back up great topics, and hopefully, (new to you) content you may have not got the opportunity to hear. Remember, while financial laws change, the steps and actions needed to adopt a debt-free mindset never change. To that end, I hope you enjoy today’s show. You can read out mostly original show notes below.
Are you having trouble climbing out of debt? Or maybe you’re tired of daily calls from debt collectors? Whether you have serious debt or just need to refresh your plan, today we’re kickstarting your 2019 journey to financial independence with the host of the Money Girl podcast, Laura Adams. Plus, speaking of 2019, what does the next year have in store for the world of credit? We’re talking to Senior Vice President of Research and Consulting at Transunion, Matthew Komos, during our headlines segment.
And later on we’ll throw out the Haven Life Line to Alex, who wants to know if he should pull some cash out of his account and reinvest when the market drops. He’s also finishing his residency to become a physician, and his tax liability is virtually zero. What should he do with his accounts right now?
And don’t worry… we’ll still take some time for Doug’s trivia.
