When we heard that Larry Mathis penned a book called Mom Was Right, well, OF COURSE we had to invite him down to the basement. Any chance we have to earn points with Joe’s mom we’ll take. Larry shares funny and insightful stories about his childhood growing up with a strong single mother who taught him plenty about not just financial planning…but about life.
In our headlines we share our feelings about horrible news around Wells Fargo bank, and glean some insights from a knowledgeable grandma. We also take a letters about diversification AND a call from Allie about the difference between a “total market” fund and an “S&P 500” fund.
…ALL of that goodness PLUS Doug’s trivia on today’s podcast.
