When I got my first 401k at work, it quickly realized that I had no idea what I was doing. There were more than a dozen fund options to choose from and I didn’t know what it was going to cost me to participate because there were so many hidden fees.
It made me want to give up right away … and I did. I thought, “This is too difficult and I can’t afford to invest for my retirement anyway.”
To help us solve this retirement conundrum, I invited the founder of blooom, Chris Costello, to tell us more about how their popular service is helping Americans save more money, time and heartache with the 401k process.
We all know it’s important to invest for the future. But with endless investing options like the 401k, the IRA, the 529, the 457, the 403b, it’s no wonder we’re confused on where to start. I mean, what kind of names are these anyway!?
Our guest today is going to help us make sense of all this investing madness. Andy Wang is here with us today. He is a Managing Partner at Runnymede Capital Management and the host of the Inspired Money Podcast. He has been named among the INVESTOPEDIA 100: Most Influential Advisors, Top 100 Most Social Financial Advisors by Brightscope, and has appeared on Reuters TV, The Huffington Post, Barron’s, and Forbes.
Outside of his financial advising world, Andy is a father of three and loves playing the Hawaiin guitar.
For decades, Vanguard has been a trusted name in the investment community. In this financial blogger world that I’ve entered into recently, it’s a resounding theme that Vanguard is the way to go when it comes to investing for your retirement. Billionaire Warren Buffett thinks Vanguard is an excellent choice. Personal Development Coach, Tony Robbins wrote a book called MONEY: Master the Game where he praises Vanguard for being the only recommendation for many of the billionaires he interviews.
Since that is the ever-present case, I decided I would give Vanguard a call and get retirement advice straight from the source and share it with all of you.
