We’re kicking off the week by answering listener questions! And if you have a question that you’d like for us to answer on the show, we’d love for you to submit your own via HowToMoney.com/ask/ , send us your voice memo. Regardless of how random or bizarre you might think it is, we want to hear it!

  1. Should I invest in my new side business or use that money to max out my Roth IRA?
  2. Is it unethical for me to accept financial assistance from a pharmaceutical company if we don’t really need the support?
  3. In order to pay for a wedding, is it OK to take some money out of an investment account?
  4. We’d like to buy a house in order to fight inflation- is this a good idea?
  5. What financial priorities should we focus on now that we’ve had a baby?

And regardless of where you are on the path to financial independence, we believe in the responsible use of credit cards. It’s smart to utilize the additional benefits that credit cards offer- for instance the $750 welcome offer that comes with the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. This is no joke- I’ve already done this myself which we discussed on a recent episode after I met the initial spending requirements of $4,000 over 3 months!

During this episode we enjoyed a 5th Anniversary Hill by Southern Grist! And please help us to spread the word by letting friends and family know about How to Money!

    Hi Matt and Joel,
    I was wondering if you’d be able to provide the spelling of the company you mentioned at the beginning of the episode – the one that checks for the current highest interest rates of savings accounts.
    Thank you so much!

    • Hey Kimberly. We were talking about Kasasa. It’s worth checking to see if your local credit union offers a Kasasa account because there’s a good chance you can get paid a much higher rate of interest if they do. Cheers!
