Your Company 401(k) - Assume Less, Ask More
48:29

Heather, a show caller, is a good example of a VIP who has decided to assume less and ask more. She asks Hogan: “My husband has an option for an after-tax account. We’d like to contribute to it due to the company match. Is there a difference between this account and a ROTH?"

 

 

VIPs, don’t just ask Hogan, ask an investment professional Hogan trusts. Don’t assume you understand your company match. Ask a ton of questions. It’s an important way for you to take advantage of investing VIPs.

#54: Paying for College – Should You Save For Your Kids?
54:37

Join in on the Retire Inspired Podcast as Chris talks about how much parents should pay for their kids’ college. He gives listeners seven tips to help them navigate this confusing and overwhelming topic.

 

  1. Talk to your kids about their life plans and how college may or may not be a part of the equation.
  2. Start early. Start saving when your kids are young. Waiting until their junior or senior year of high school will not give you adequate time to save. If you’re late to the game, don’t give up!
  3. Have your kids research scholarships and grants and apply for every money source they can (except loans). This researching and applying should be your kids’ part-time job in their high school years.
  4. Check out the options for paying for college. A community college is an excellent option to knock out the basics.
  5. Know the real deal about getting a degree from an expensive college.
  6. Consider the options with your kids: they could work part time; work full time and go to school at night; work full time to save up cash to go to school full time; join the armed forces and utilize their tuition assistance program.
  7. Be creative with additional expenses. Find ways to save on books, living expenses, meal plans, etc.

In addition to his discussion about paying for college, Hogan talks about an alarming article on student loan debt among Americans who are 50 and older. He also talks with callers about a variety of topics: asset allocations and investing; how to prepare for a new baby; paying off your mortgage early; long-term care insurance; and helping parents prepare for retirement. Plus, he gets to hear from an everyday millionaire about her success story.

#52: How To Pay Off Your House Early
51:16

In this episode of the Retire Inspired podcast, Chris Hogan cues up the subject of paying off your mortgage early. That’s right! Rather than having that monthly payment hanging around your neck, you can take charge of your finances and pay off that mortgage so you can throw more money toward your retirement dream.

 

Here are some ways you can pay off your mortgage early:

 

  1. Make an extra house payment every quarter.
  2. Bring your lunch to work every day.
  3. Refinance to a 15-year fixed rate mortgage.
  4. Downsize to a smaller home.
  5. Don’t bite off more than you can chew.
  6. Work with a pro to find the right home within your budget.
  7. Maximize your down payment.

 

If you don’t think you can take on this challenge of paying off your home early, think again! Hogan talks to folks who paid off their mortgage early—and they share how they made it possible.

A MILLION STRONG (VIP ANTHEM)

Written/performed by David Wilkinson  Produced by James Childs

 

Humble beginnings, small Kentucky town,

Momma Hogan raised him right, but still he looked around and wondered,

“Should I go play ball, or get in the ring and fight?

But God, do you have a bigger dream for me tonight

that I cannot see with my own eyes?”

That’s when Hogan finally realized that all he had do was believe

that one day God would put him up on a stage and put him on a podcast mic

and rock A MILLION PLAYS!

No, never going back ‘cause he knows that…

 

I was made for this, and I ain’t going out ‘til I take it…

what I came to get, I was made for this…

and I will never lose I was made for this… just face it…

I was made for this…

 

Yeah, we’re calling all VIPs, saddle up!

Our posse is ready ‘cause Hogan’s on the hunt

A man on a mission, nomadic with vision, so make your decision:

Will you choose to leave all your broken dreams behind you?

And ride to the fight to destroy what will bind you?

The anthem we ride to, it didn’t start today but when you pressed play

Now a million strong…

Believe your dreams are coming true, grab the reigns and sing along

‘Cause this is your song…

 

I was made for this, and I ain’t going out ‘til I take it… what I came to get…

I was made for this, and I will never lose I was made for this… just face it…

I was made for this, and I ain’t going out ‘til I take it… what I came to get…

I was made for this, and I ain’t going out I was made for this…

And I will never lose… I was made for this…

 

Remember the door where you left your excuses

Remember this day, remember that you must choose this

And never forget that nobody gives you anything

A fighter’s legit when unafraid to take everything

Don’t matter the opponent and no matter the moment

If you got a dream VIPs you got to get bloody

No retreat or surrender, no begging, no barter

Take every single shot and show them you can hit harder! 

So be strong and sing along… 

I was made for this… I was made for this… just face it… I was made for this!

#15: Year End Priorities
47:54

With the new year quickly approaching, Hogan presents seven financial priorities for you to focus on. Hogan also discusses the savings crisis in America, research uncovered in a survey commissioned by Ramsey Solutions. Other featured segments include Hear from the People, Retire Inspired Christmas poetry, and Hogan’s patented 3-Point Takeaway.

 

0:28 – WELCOME

 

1:43 – FINANCIAL MOVES TO MAKE BEFORE THE NEW YEAR

 

Chris offers seven actions to take:

 

Assess your debt. Understand what you owe and where you owe it.

 

Revisit your budget. Sit down and determine exactly where your money goes each month.

 

Review your retirement accounts. Do you have any 401(k) accounts from a former employer that need to be rolled over into an IRA? If so, make sure the money transfers directly between accounts.

 

Check your insurance policies. Review your current life insurance policy to make sure you have the coverage your family needs. If you have questions or need help, go to chrishogan360.com and click “Dream Team” to connect with one of our insurance ELPs. These are people Hogan trusts.

 

Update beneficiaries. Now is the time to make changes to the designated beneficiaries you’ve named in your will and other legal documents, including your investment accounts. You can update these by filling out a form for 401(k)s, IRAs, life insurance policies, and other plans. Check with the providers of these accounts for the correct paperwork.

 

Look at income tax withholdings. Each year, you want to know exactly where you stand on your income taxes. Don’t let this to sneak up on you in March. Go to chrishogan360.com and click “Dream Team” to get connected with one of our tax ELPs. They have the heart of a teacher and want you to avoid any hassles from the IRS.

 

Review your portfolio. Set up an appointment with a financial professional to review your investment portfolio. If there’s anything you don’t understand—from the fees you pay to the types of funds you’re building—ask questions. You are in charge of your financial future, so you’re responsible for understanding your investments.

 

Here are three bonus actions:

 

Do medical check-ups. This is an area many people forget. Before the end of the year, take advantage of all yearly check-ups that you have paid for throughout the year through your insurance premiums. Do you need an eye exam, a physical, or other medical exams? If so, get an appointment and go before December 31. Also, be aware of your healthcare costs and expenses. Does your current policy meet your needs? Is there a way to get the same or better coverage at a lower cost?

 

Update wills and trusts. A common misconception is that you only create and talk about a will one time. People are not aware that you can update your will as many times as you want, as long as the updates are properly witnessed and notarized according to your state law. Also, you may want to talk with an estate planning attorney to see if a trust makes sense for your situation.

 

Set new goals. The new year brings new opportunities for everyone. Be clear on what you want to achieve financially, physically, spiritually, and as a family. The only way to be proactive is to put the goals in writing and take steps to reach them.

 

16:11 – VIP ANNOUNCEMENTS

17:39 – RETIRE INSPIRED CHRISTMAS POETRY

 

This episode features a special poem sent in from a VIP. Off comes the beanie, and on goes the Santa hat as Hogan reads the Jones’ Christmas poetry. 

 

19:54 – SAVINGS CRISIS—RETIREMENT IN AMERICA

 

Hogan discusses findings from the survey commissioned by Ramsey Solutions. He discusses the top four reasons people are not saving for their retirement dreams:

 

1. Cost of living

 

2. Credit card debt

 

3. Mortgage payments

 

4. Medical expenses

 

Check out the full survey at daveramsey.com/research.

42:30 – RELEVANT CHALLENGE / RALLY CRY WRAP-UP

16:38 – HOGAN’S 10 POINTS TO PROGRESS

1. BE A MONEY BOSS. Start each month with a budget, listing income and expenses.

 

2. HAVE A DEBT REDUCTION PLAN. Use the debt snowball approach: List all your debts then attack them from smallest to largest.

 

3. ESTABLISH AN EMERGENCY FUND. Be prepared for unexpected events (a car problem, home repair, hospital visit, etc.) by keeping an emergency fund on hand.

 

4. TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR SPENDING. Understand the difference between a want and a need. Set limits on spending, even if it means sacrificing your wants.

 

5. PLAN AHEAD. Look at the calendar and save money for upcoming expenses (holidays, travel, birthdays, etc.).

 

6. BOOST YOUR INCOME. Brainstorm ways you could earn extra money over the next three to six months (sell stuff you don’t need, have a garage sale, offer to tutor, etc).

 

7. GET A HEAD START ON COLLEGE. If you have children, start saving for college as soon as possible. You want to help them get an education without student loans. But don’t sacrifice your retirement fund in the process! Remember, kids can work their way through college.

 

8. PLUG IN TO THE COMMUNITY. Volunteer for events in your area or help out at your church. Make a list of 10 friends and tell them about R:IQ and Financial Peace University as financial discussions come up. When people change, their community does too!

 

9. KNOW YOUR PLAN. Retirement is not an age; it’s a financial number! Decide on your retirement dream, discover your R:IQ, and determine a plan to get to that retirement number.

 

10. KEEP THE RIGHT ATTITUDE. Progress is taking one step forward, one day at a time. Where you are now is the new starting point, so forget the past and start moving ahead.
