Ask Paula: I Make $168,000 Per Year and Spend $5,000 Per Year. What’s Next? Afford Anything

#195: Alex makes $168,000 per year, combined between her full-time job and her side hustle. Her company pays for breakfast, lunch and dinner during the work week, plus a cell phone subsidy, health, dental and vision insurance, a gym membership, and commuting costs. She also househacks, so her living expenses are only $400 per month. What should she do with her ample savings?
Christine is 38 and earns $70,000 per year running her own business. She holds $70,000 in investment accounts, has another $16,000 in savings, bought a condo with 20 percent down, and has no debt. What can she do to fast-track her path to financial independence?
Amy is unsure whether she should pay off her mortgage, downsize to a smaller home, or invest.
Katherine is 23 and househacking into a duplex. How much should she set aside for cash reserves?
Miriam started a podcast and wants to know how to morph a passion into a lucrative income stream.
Nick wonders if the FIRE movement should plan an annual gathering … you know, like a FIRE Festival. (But not like the Fyre Festival.)
I tackle these six questions in today’s episode.
