What Happens When Someone Steals Half a Million from You

A bookkeeper noticed checks were clearing the bank without signatures, so she began writing some herself out of her employers account.

More than $500,000 later she finds herself in jail, but who is to blame here?

Desiree Patno is the CEO and President of Women in the Housing and Real Estate Ecosystem (NAWRB) and Desirée Patno Enterprises, Inc. who found out from an outside bank that this was going on. She is now on a mission to expose the neglect from all parties involved – not just the bookkeeper – to make sure things like blank checks never get through the system without notification again.

What were some of the checks-and-balances that were missed?

Who should be responsible for the stolen funds?

Listen to the panelists discuss ways this story can relate to your personal finances.

Taxes Early Retirement Roth IRA We Answer Your Questions

A couple listeners with more than $2M in investments emailed us with questions about retiring, their 401(k) accounts, and how to beat taxes.

Mike‘s current income puts his family over the 15% marginal tax bracket into the 25% bracket – even after deductions. Should he focus on putting money into their 401(k) accounts to stay in the 15% bracket as long as possible?

David says: A Roth IRA is a better option for young people because they have a longer time to grow the investments, and therefor more growth that is not taxed. Why do people still say max your 401(k) (i.e.: above the company match) first and then invest in a Roth?

Dana and her husband are considering early retirement in 2020. They have 9 rental properties with great equity and their personal residence is paid off, no consumer debt. She gives us her list of assets and asks, “Will we actually be able to retire without running out of money if we spend $120k a year?”

Monica and her husband have more than $2M saved. The current rule-of-thumb says we will need 70-80% of current income per year at retirement. Online calculators suggest we would need $6-$7M of total savings. Will it be enough?

Steve graduated with no debt and has a great income. Due to his current Visa in the U.S., Steve is unsure how long he will be in the country. He asks, “Where do you recommend I put my savings and investing since retirement accounts in this situation do not make sense?”

How to Make Money in the New Market with Will Denyer

Can a demographic have such an impact on a national economy that it keeps interest rates low? Will the end of a “global savings glut” force interest rates to go up? What will this mean for inflation?

Our guest, Will Denyer, explains how three decades of investing by Asia’s population helped keep interest rates low, but how it all could change once they begin taking money out for their retirement.

Money Stories and Investing Buckets with Jason Smith – MTI177

Challenging the traditional way of thinking about the bucket strategy, author  Jason Smith says you should have three buckets: Now, Soon, and Later.

He begins to explain with a story, then dives deeper into the Investing Buckets:

The Now Bucket is for safe and liquid money. This money is not used to invest, it’s to be set aside for emergencies and help you sleep better. Included in this bucket are small and large expenses that are planned. Are you about to retire? Jason says your Now Bucket should contain 12 months of living expenses.

The Soon Bucket is “money you may want to take a more conservative approach on because you may need to draw income or withdrawals sooner rather than later”, Jason says.

The Later Bucket is long-term growth and legacy planning. Jason says this bucket is not just for retirement, it also will cover the increased expenses a widow or widower will have from raising kids as single parent or increased income taxes because their filing status now raises their effective tax rate.

He also cautions against “Freak-out Risk“. Listen as he explains how volatility in the market causes people to make emotional decisions with their money at the exact wrong time.

Could a child invest enough by age 18 to have enough money at retirement – even if he/she never saved another dime?
