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 buy ETFs or mutual funds when investing within a taxable brokerage account?
  2. What should we do with the proceeds from selling our house?
  3. As we achieve FIRE, how do we go about easily withdrawing our retirement funds early without getting hit with penalties?
  4. Is it a good idea to put down 0% on a new home? And if it is, what should I do with extra money that I would have on hand?
  5. Should I ditch my workplace 401k and move to a Roth IRA instead?
  • Investing – We referenced our 7 Money Gears during this episode. It’s important to know what your next financial moves should be before you take action!
  • Early retirement – If you’re interested in how to tap retirement funds early in order to achieve FIRE, then check out this resource by the Mad Fientist.
    • Military – And you can use benefits offered by the military to achieve financial independence as well. Listen to our interview with Doug Nordman.
  • Extra cash – 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 60,000 points that come with the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. That’s $750 when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards! 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!
