Mailbag | MHFI 150

It’s another Mail Bag episode! Doug and Carl answer questions about

  • Umbrella insurance policies
  • Does the 4% Rule still apply in light of recent market declines?
  • Is it OK to own a Tesla? (and why is the FI community so judgmental?)
  • Coast FI
  • Reader case study: I’m a late comer to the FI movement
