4 Rules of Money Recap and Why You Should Have a Roth IRA

July 16, 2019

It has been a while since I have had time to podcast.  (You can blame my photography schedule.)  Anyway, I gave a speech the other day to a group of industry professionals and it was interesting to see where we all were in our financial journey.  One thing became clear though: money truths are applicable at all ages.  The truth behind getting wealthy is applicable at any age and can be implemented at any age.  On today's podcast, I recap the 4 Rules of Money and what steps you can take to implement them.

Last week, I was sitting at Starbucks doing work when a group of women walked in carrying fliers for an upcoming 4.01k race.  I asked them what it was all about, and it turns out it is a walk/race to help raise money for the Boys and Girls Club of Oakland and Macomb Counties.  The best part is, after the race the kids is "Wellabration" where kids get to learn about the power and importance of personal finance.  I sat down with Alma Ko, Marketing and Engagement Coordinator at Cambridge Consulting, a sponsor of the event, to talk about the race.
