The Fintern is finishing out our rewind week with one of our old school roundtable favorites: we’re talking about lies about retirement. You can read the original show notes below:
On today’s podcast we’re talking about lying. A recent news piece reports that there are nine lies we’re told about retirement planning. We’ll break them down with Greg, Paula, and special guest Rich Jones from the hit podcast Paychecks and Balances.
We won’t stop there, thought. We’ll also discuss a recent question to the Moneyologist at MarketWatch. If you had two kids and one was irresponsible, would you disown him? We ask our roundtable that very question and come up with some interesting estate planning themes you may want to address in your own planning.
On the Freshbooks FinTech segment we talk to Michael Asare from Fee Belly. Ever feel like the fine print in a contract is completely against you? Fee Belly was designed to show you ALL of the fine print by highlighting it so you can easily see where contracts might not be in your favor. We’ll ask him how it works on today’s podcast.
