1:32 – Talking with clients and listeners allows you to get a feel for what’s on everyone’s mind regarding planning.
2:18 – Question #1: I can sell my house for $500,000 and I only owe about $100,000. I’m only 57 but I’m thinking about selling it now, buying a smaller place, and using the cash to retire now. Is that a bad idea?
2:43 – Each state has different tax laws so that’s important to consider.
3:15 – How are you planning to invest that money?
3:55 – We talk with a lot of clients that are considering a similar move.
5:11 – Question #2: Unless my entire board of directors gets in trouble, I feel really confident about our future potential and growth. How much is too much company stock to own in my 401k?
7:02 – Even great companies can take a steep drop as we’ve seen in the past.
7:22 – Question #3: I’d really like to meet with a financial advisor but my husband wants to handle investments ourselves. Is that okay to do without help?
8:24 – Do you see many couples that come with completely different opinions on using an advisor?
9:41 – Question #4: I have about $50,000 in an old life insurance policy. I don’t need it anymore so should I cash out and invest it elsewhere?
11:41 – Question #5: I always told myself that once I hit one million dollars in my portfolio I’d move it all to cash. Now that I’m there, I think I can get to $1.2 million. What do you think?
13:29 – Where does that million dollar number come from? Is that more than enough for your retirement?
