    068 Is Gold Safe?

    068 Is Gold Safe?

    We have always talked about making safe investments and the importance of assessing risks before making those investments.
     
    As we’ve discussed, some investments create continuous cash flow, while others increase their value over time, giving us a profitable return. One of those investments is gold.
     
    However, there’s a risk of investing in gold: its volatility. Its value could go up or down depending on public demand. If you decide to add gold to our portfolio, you must do it in a safe way, because not every portfolio has the need nor the space for it.
     
    In this episode, I want to discuss some reasons that make gold a valid investment idea and how you should approach it safely without jeopardizing your financial future.
     
    Today our conversation includes:
    5 reasons why people are attracted to gold. Why is gold seen as a commodity? Why is gold so volatile? How to add gold to your portfolio?

    067 How Are You, Really? with Jenna Kutcher

    067 How Are You, Really? with Jenna Kutcher

    How are you really?  This is a big question that most don't ask often enough. Because we don't ask it often enough, we can find ourselves living a mildly miserable life or a life that isn't fulfilling us the way we want. In fact, this is where a lot of burnout and overwhelm comes from.
     
    Today’s guest is my good friend Jenna Kutcher, the host of the Goal Digger Podcast, one of the top podcasts around business, marketing, and how to chase bold dreams. In this episode, we’re discussing her new book: “How Are You, Really?”.
     
    Jenna describes this book as an answer to how to wake up to your life, redefine success, and come home to yourself. It will help you explore questions such as: How do you find happiness? How do you find that enrichment in life beyond chasing material possessions? Because that is always the ultimate goal: to enrich your life beyond money.
     
    This episode will help you realize that it’s never too late to find what you are really passionate about, and how creating something you love and making it your mission can change your life and the lives of those around you for the better. Never forget that we must strive for a life that outlives us.
     
    Today our conversation includes:
    An introduction to the book “How Are You, Really?” and what it is about. How can you start shifting from your current path to where you want to go? How can you live a richer life? Spoiler alert: it doesn’t always involve money.

    066 Should You Convert Your IRA to a Roth IRA?

    066 Should You Convert Your IRA to a Roth IRA?

    When thinking about our financial future we want what is best for us and our family. For some people, this looks like creating retirement accounts that can help their money grow over time. These accounts come in different types and have different benefits.
     
    And in every wealth plan, there’s one thing you can’t avoid…taxes.
     
    Taxes are simply a part of every financial journey BUT your job is to only pay the amount you are legally required to, not one penny more.
     
    Considering that tax rates could approach 50% or more depending on the state you live in, it isn’t a decision to take lightly.
     
    But what if you could have a portion of your retirement or wealth be completely tax-free?
     
    Cool idea, right?
     
    That’s effectively what a Roth is. No tax deduction when you put money in AND no taxes on any amount when you withdraw it (after age 59 ½) on any of the growth or the contributions.
     
    Some people already have an IRA, or a different type of account, and they’re trying to figure out if making a conversion to Roth IRA is the best idea. Although the tax demon can invade your retirement and wealth. But it may be possible to minimize it through systematic conversions of your IRAs.
     
    In this episode, we will explore what a Roth IRA is, how to make a conversion from an IRA account, and the benefits that it could bring us over time depending on what we are planning for our future.
     
    Today our conversation includes:
    How does a Roth IRA work? How to do a conversion from a regular IRA to a ROTH. What you need to consider before doing the conversion.
