This week Michael Clark and John McCann are kicking off 2019 by discussing some of the recent volatility as well as an overview of 2018.
This show is full of interesting facts and stats about the S&P 500 as well as some great comparisons to 2008 with regards to bank failure rates. Another interesting topic that came up was the use of credit cards. There are very mixed feelings as to where credit cards fit into a person’s financial plan, so John and Michael spend some time discussing this topic. Remember, this show is to help you answer questions about anything in life relating to a dollar sign.
The Let’s Talk Future Show cuts through the noise and nonsense about money and gives you the tools you need to build wealth, invest for the future, and put a plan in place.
