When it comes to investing, do you ever find yourself reacting to the media headlines? If you spend even one day listening to financial news updates, you could be convinced that you need to do something drastic to combat the doom and gloom that's perpetuated by industry 'gurus.' Fear is often the driving emotion behind bad financial decisions, and we don't want you to total your financial life because of such peer pressure.

You (and any other investor) are told on a daily basis by the financial media to follow the herd and invest your money in this or that, or worse... sell when things seem scary. In this week's episode, we talk about how even when there's good news the media somehow wraps it up in negativity. Don't be misled in your financial life.

If there was a way for you to become a tax-free millionaire, do you think that would be something you'd want to know about? The good news is that there is a retirement vehicle that was designed to incentivize Americans to save toward retirement by allowing assets to grow tax-free, and it's known as a Roth IRA.

You may be familiar with what a Roth IRA is but do you know all the reasons that make it such an amazing component to your overall retirement strategy? You're in luck because in this week's episode of The Money Guy Show we share why Roth IRAs were created and how you can use them to gain the highest benefit.

When is it OK to spend money? It's very common for people who prioritize building wealth to shudder at the notion of spending it. After all, we as a tribe have self-selected out of this culture of consumerism and embraced a lifestyle of forced scarcity to help us reach financial goals and, ultimately, financial independence.

But spending money isn't inherently bad. In fact, once you get to a place where your net worth is increasing faster than your income, you have likely reached a critical tipping point in your financial journey that allows you to start making a transition from saver to spender.

Tune in to this week's episode of The Money Guy Show as we give you clear direction on what, when, and how you can spend better and still stay on your path to building lasting wealth.
