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 save my money in a regular savings account or invest that money in the market if I want to buy an investment property?
  2. What should I do with a bunch of Tesla stock that I’m planning to use as a down payment for our home?
  3. Does it make sense for me to own my duplex under a new LLC that I could create?
  4. Is it a better idea for my employer to match a Roth or Traditional 401k?
  5. As I’d like to coach and teach others about money, where can I go to volunteer my financial knowledge?
