Want to be rich? Harvard’s Dr. Robert Waldinger says that won’t make you happier. Fame? Yeah, that doesn’t do it either. Today we dive into the TRUE keys to happiness with the man who heads up the world’s longest research study on the topic. He’ll share not only the data but also what you can do to transform your own life into a much sunnier place.
There’s also BIG new legislation late last year. With wide-ranging changes impacting retirement withdrawal rules, retirement saving amounts, accounts and eligibility, college fund rollovers, and more. We’ll walk through a laundry list of new opportunities and give you some ideas on how to best use them.
Of course, we’ll also throw out the Haven Life line to a Stacker with a question AND share some of Doug’s amazing trivia.
Deeper dives with curated links, topics, and discussions are in our newsletter, The 201, available at https://www.StackingBenjamins.com/201
