Procrastinating With No Deadline
If you put it off until the last minute, it only takes a minute to do. One of my favorite saying when I was in school. When we have NO deadline, procrastination becomes easier. How can we recognize the places in our financial lives that we are consistently avoiding? How can we set up ways to break these patterns? Join me for the live version of the #DailyDish on Instagram Live @GregChatsCash! Let's get #MoneyWoke & build #WealthHealth with a #CashStronghold

An Incomplete, Off-the-Cuff, Unverified Definition of Stock Markets & Investing

The Bore01(K) - The Make More Money Account - On Today's #DailyDish
Why do they call it a 401k? What a boring name from a line in the tax code. Let's call it a "pay less taxes now, maybe get more money from your employer, & grow your wealth through tax-deferred investing account..." Too long? Well, if you know anything about me, I'm long-winded. Join me as I talk about ways to start investing in the stock market with your 401k and the advantages of low cost, well-diversified, index funds. I hope to make it less painful than it sounds. Also, to clarify something I didn't know at the end of the podcast, you can start taking money from your 401k when you reach the age of 59 and a half without tax penalty. There are some other ways to access the money before that, but that stuff's real boring. Invested like it's spent! #MoneyWoke if you're returning listener, thank you so much! I'm told I should ask people to leave a rating and review. So if you got a sec...
