Mailbag in Leadville | MHFI 177

Doug and Carl answer mailbag questions in this Taylor Swift-infused episode from Leadville, CO.  Carl also announces the new Mile High FI Facebook group.

  • Does it ever get any easier to ride the market swings mentally?
  • How would you reallocate your investments if there were no tax implications?
  • What did Doug’s (and Carl’s) parents do right?
  • Do you wish you had taken a gap year or had a little more fun when you were young?
  • Experiences at CampFI?
  • Thoughts on imposter syndrome?

Do you love us as much as we love Taylor Swift? If so, head on over to Buy Me A Coffee to join other Swifties in supporting the show.
