The Stacking Benjamins Show

Jan 30, 2019

Are you horrible with money? Turns out you're not alone (big surprise)! While most of us have been bad with money at some point in our lives, we don't usually write a book about it. Today we're joined by Gaby Dunn, who today will dive into her early years, and the money scripts she learned from school, parents, and friends. It's a quick look into her new book :Bad With Money.

Plus, during our headlines segment, a Barron's piece proves again just how many people don't understand the FIRE movement. And in our second headline, investors are looking for "safer" investments as the economy continues to fluctuate. It's a sad reality that no matter how much we talk about not sabotaging your financial plan, people seem to consistently find a way to shoot themselves in the foot with their financial behavior.

Later in the show, we'll throw out the Haven Life Line to Kathy, who is looking to retire in the next decade. She should be shifting more of her portfolio over to bonds? What's the right balance between bonds and equities as one gets closer to retirement? We'll also take time to answer a letter from Braden, who's fresh out of college and has his first full-time job. What are some resources he can use to start investing?

And don't worry... we'll still have time for Doug's trivia.
