Don’t Time the Market – with Rocky Lalvani

It is so important to evolve and to keep up with the ever-changing world. Because when we’re complacent and stuck in our ways, opportunities, excitement and potential wealth can pass us by.

I’ve invited someone on the show today who lives by this credo and his name is Rocky Lalvani.

Rocky is a life and money coach who has built a multi-million dollar fortune, not from his coaching biz, but from living a life focused on flexibility, frugality, and family.

I’m not a saver. How do I get motivated?

Our question of the month comes from Chad from Ohio:

Hello Andy,

I know I’m supposed to save, but I just don’t.

I read your blog and hear you talk about saving and it sounds natural for you. I’m not sure I’ve been blessed with the saver’s gene.

Do you have any advice for me to get motivated?

Thanks!

Chad


Thanks for writing in Chad!

I totally get where you’re coming from. Saving, budgeting, investing  … they can be super boring.

I talk to my wife about these topics all the time and I just put her to sleep. In order for me to talk to her about these topics, she requires that I give her a back massage while doing it so she’s at least getting something out of it.

But you didn’t come here to hear my marital bedroom talk … you asked for motivation. And Chad, I’m going to give it ya brother!

Track Your Net Worth and Become a Young Millionaire – with J. Money

Growing your income year after year is definitely something to be proud of. The increased pay can allow you to enjoy more and experience more.

But you know what’s a more important barometer for your financial health?

Net worth.

Through the many financial conversations I’ve had and even in my personal experience, a lot of people do not know what net worth is and why it’s important.

Today, we’re going to change all that.

I’ve invited a man who’s been tracking his net worth every month for the last 10 years! Yes, that’s more than 120 net worth charts. That’s dedication.

Should I Pay Off My Mortgage or Invest?

Our question of the month comes in from Luke from Indiana:


Hey Andy,

I was reading on your blog that you recently paid off your mortgage early. Congratulations!

I’m a Dave Ramsey guy like you and we’re getting close to baby step 6. I’m considering going heavy into paying off my mortgage like you did, but I’m also thinking it might be smarter for me to invest more for my retirement or just simply invest in the market. I also know market returns are unpredictable and we’re near all-time highs.

I have a 15-year mortgage at around 4% and the principal sits around $200,000. My wife and I are both working – we like what we do and combined we make around $200,000 per year. I feel like we could throw $50k per year at the mortgage and we’d be done in 4 years or less.

That could also be a good amount to throw at our retirement each year too.

What would you suggest for us? Should we pay off our mortgage or invest the money?
