435: Ask Mindy and Scott: Early Retirement, Asking for a Raise, and Stolen Money
Is early retirement healthcare crushing your budget? Are you tired of getting your standard two percent raise every year? What do you do when a “friend” borrows money and never pays you back? Some personal finance questions aren’t easily answered online. Instead, you need time-tested money experts to give their takes on the best moves to make. And in today’s episode, Mindy and Scott will do just that, taking questions from BiggerPockets Money listeners and answering them so you can reach financial freedom faster.
This time, we’ve got a couple of uncomfortable positions you probably wouldn’t want to be in. One listener has a friend who asked for a loan and then almost immediately stopped paying, with the “friend” never to be seen again. Another question concerns a parent wanting to be paid back for student loans they took out in their name. Mindy and Scott then share a creative way to pay off credit card debt and give options on the BEST place to find post-retirement (but pre-sixty-five years old) healthcare. Finally, Scott puts on his CEO hat and shows you exactly how to ask for a raise!
