55:15According to a recent Gallup poll, the average expected retirement age is 66. Thirty years ago, the average American projected retiring at age 60. What does this mean? On average, Americans are expected to work longer and retire later in life--or maybe not! There is a new Millennial movement called "F.I.R.E.", Financially Independent and Retiring Early. How early? 20 - 30 years early! It's not easy but it's very possible and on this episode we are discussing how to adopt this way of life to retire in your 30s or 40s.

58:06Keeping liquid savings on hand in case of an emergency is one area where Americans of all income brackets are falling short--especially the "middle class." But what is this middle class?

53:11No matter how much you earn, "getting by" is still a struggle for most people. 78% of full-time U.S. workers say they are living check-to-check and 56% say they are in over their heads with debt. Even those making over six figures say they struggle to make ends meet with with nearly in 10 of those making $100k+ living paycheck-to-paycheck. So what does all of this mean?
