December of 2018 was a bit rough for most, and now that 2019 is in full swing, people are probably wondering what to expect for this year.
In this show Michael Clark and John McCann spend some time discussing a USA Today article with predictions that were made from 2018 and some of the actual numbers might really shock you. It is always important to remember that no matter how much experience someone has in the markets, no one has a crystal ball. We hope that you will enjoy this episode and learn a little about RMD’s, (Required Minimum Distributions) Roth, and even some cool stats from the big game.
As always, this 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.
