3 Buckets of FIRE, Long Term Care, Dating, Mailbag | MHFI 221

Doug and Carl answer questions from the Facebook mailbag.

  • Branden – Basically Coast FI, but can’t pass up the tax advantages of a 401k and a Roth IRA even though focusing on a taxable brokerage account would provide freedom sooner.  How did you prioritize which accounts to use and when?
  • Julie – Do you favor long-term care insurance?
  • Matt – How to approach the dating scene?
  • Andrea – What advice do you have for parents pursuing FI with kids & what would you do differently?  What thoughts do you have about raising a financially responsible set of kids? 
  • Claudia – What did you decide to do about college expenses for your kids?  How are you teaching them about money so that one day they can protect and grow what they will inherit?
