We kick off today’s show talking Tiger Woods and the cost of his recent…er…problem. And then Karen Schenone from Blackrock tells us about how bonds work! What a great kickoff to today’s episode.
After that, it’s ALL of your letters, including ones about IRAs…how to you maximize your contributions; we then turn to blogging. Should Daryl start a blog? We weigh in. We also talk about investing in bonds, building the wrong side-hustle, and more.
