KBR Clan ,

Love your show!

Hi KT, I love listening to your show and I have learned quite a bit about what I need to be doing to get more financially sound and better plan for retirement. I do have a request, I am a new ish listener so I don’t know if this has been covered already or not, but you’ve mentioned a few times about how to buy a car in cash after your 4th car.... do you think you could do an episode about that? Or if yo I have I’d be happy to look back and find it, thanks!
