In this video, I talk about the difference between a Traditional or Roth retirement accounts and what my advise is on funding them.
In this video, I talked about which one to prioritize first.
Pet Insurance have literally saved us thousands of dollars last year. In this video, I'm sharing our real live expenses to show you how having insurance have benefitted and saved us a lot of money.
Should I get dog insurance? I always advised my friends or clients who have pets to get insurance. I created a video below talking about it.
The Pet Insurance we use is Pet's Best. We've been using them the past 2 years and have been very happy with them. Here is the link https://www.petsbest.com/PH6571093
I absolutely encourage and support everyone to get dog insurance. The policy we have for both dogs cost $250 and $182 yearly for the older 5 year old and the younger 1 year old pup. Our policy is a thousand deductible and 90/10 coinsurance. What this means is we pay the first thousand for "qualified" expenses. This would be anything the insurance do not exclude like pre-existing conditions and whatever your contract exclude. After the first thousand, we only pay 10% of the cost. So for example, if our dog have a $10K surgery that's considered a qualified expense. We pay 10% co-pay, which would be $1K then $9K will be counted towards the deductible. Since our deductible is $1K, they'll pay the rest above that, which would be $8K. So our total out of pocket expense for this $10K surgery is only $2K and 80% is being paid for by the insurance.
Take care of your babies. Get pet insurance. You won't regret it.
I get asked this question a lot during my coaching sessions so I thought I'll post a video about it.
In general, I don't go by the way most websites determine how much you'll need to retire, which is based on income. I determine when you are able to retire and how much you'll need based on your current average expenses. For example, if you are spending average $3K a month, which is $36K annually. Let's round that up to $40K. Then we add that yearly plus the 2% or 3% inflation rate and keep doing that till your life expectancy. Then add up the total from the time you plan to retire (ex. age 60 / 65 till maybe you are 80 or 90). See if you can get to that number from now till then. If you need help figuring out if you can retire, I can coach you through this. You don't have to do this alone.
