With a Roth, you're betting that you'll have a higher tax bracket in retirement and that taxes will be higher in the future. Considering that most of us on here should have high savings ratios and that we are at a historic low for taxes, that's a bet I'll make.

Can you really claim to be "self made" while inheriting a family business? To claim the majority of Forbes richest list are self made requires a very liberal definition.

part of the problem with many financial blogs is that they all assume you're spending money that you aren't even making to get these wild numbers. Many families don't even make 40k per year to start with.

Having a mindset that $10k is a lot of money isn't the cause of making money, making a lot of money is the cause of thinking that way. Its actually about percentages of your income, if anything.

Wow, I guess I'm sitting on a veritable gold mine of a spouse. Guess we should both quit our jobs and find someone willing to pay over a hundred grand to do laundry and cook a meal a few hours per day.

This is actually pretty terrible advice for most people. For most, it's easier to plan short term goals that build up to larger ones, or they get frustrated and give up. You have to crawl before you walk, walk before you run.

If you're at risk of ruining your retirement by helping your kids get through college you've already failed yourself. Might as well roll the dice and see if your kids will do any better than you.

I hate that you so regularly hear about successful business owners saying how amazing it is to own a successful business. What they don't tell you is how rare successful businesses are, or how much more work they can be. It's like asking lottery winners if they're glad they bought a lottery ticket. All I'm saying is, there's reasons why running a business isn't for everyone.

this article is crammed with good points and advice. I thought the presenter was reading too fast and repeatedly had to hit back to listen again.

I have already learned a wealth of invaluable financial knowledge in just 9 episodes of listening to this podcast. The perspectives on money are varied, nuanced and actionable. Plus, the real value is how much more efficient it is for me to listen to these podcasts rather than seeking out blogs and reading through for hours to find the best posts. I'm listening on my commute each day and reinventing my financial future in the process!

I am a big Optimal Living Daily fan and still listen every single day, but OFD is my new favorite podcast. It's what I've been looking for since I started listening to podcasts a couple of years ago. Short, interesting episodes with actionable items. I'll recommend this to every one I know.
