Why It’s Ok to Stray From the 401(k) - Episode 102


Today on the Prosperity Podcast, our hosts, best-selling author Kim Butler and no bs money guy Todd Strobel, sit down to discuss ‘why it’s ok to stray from the 401(k)’. They talk about the difference between “saving” and “investing” and how those words have gotten confused in our everyday language. They also discuss what you should be doing with your money instead of investing in a 401(k) (not buying a jet ski!) - but putting your money in places where you have ‘CLUE’ - control, liquidity, use, and equity. Tune in to find out more about 401(k)s and how to keep your money safe.
