Winning In The Long Run (with Sanjay Rawal)
Establishing your BEST financial habits means realizing that it isn't about being great today or tomorrow; it's about doing the right things over and over again for the long run. Today we talk to the creator of a documentary specifically about a long run. 3100, Run and Become is the story of an ultramarathon that covers (shocker) 3100 miles. Better yet? It's run around a single New York City block. Sanjay Rawal will take us through the event, his making of the film, and we'll talk about topics that have everything to do with finance. 1) Finding what you love; 2) Chasing a dream; 3) Knowing your weaknesses; 4) Finding your state of "Flow"; and more. The cool part for us? We get to talk finance in a way that you've probably never heard it talked about before.
During our headlines segment, another deceased celebrity's estate is an arm wrestling match for the heirs. Sigh. We'll tell you who's fighting for the cash and discuss what YOU should do to foolproof your estate plan from your greedy family. Then, in our second headline, credit card reward programs are everywhere... but just like ice cream brands, they're not all created equal. We'll talk pros and cons of credit card rewards during our second piece.
As if that's not enough, we keep bringing it! During our Haven Life Line segment, we'll answer a question from Jason. He's wants to retire in his 40s. If Jason rolls his Roth 401k into a Roth IRA, will he be able to withdraw the cash without the tax penalty? Does the 5 year conversion rule still apply?
Then, in our letter segment David is just starting to pay attention to his financial situation. He wants to know what the advantage would be of using a financial advisor or buying funds that have high expense ratios over doing it himself. Couldn't he just do it on his own and save extra cash? We'll surprise Jason with an answer he doesn't expect, and hopefully surprise you, too.
And don't you worry, we'll still have time for some of Doug's very special Benjamin Franklin themed trivia.
