Right now, the markets are at all-time highs. However, when we ask, “How are the markets doing?” we’re often referring to a very small subset of the overall market. Very few people who say the markets are doing well are thinking about not just the U.S. stock market, but the bond market or international markets of any kind. Furthermore, with markets at an all-time high, we want to talk about what you can do to prepare for the inevitable decline - or recession - and the best things you can do...

401(k) plans are becoming a bigger and bigger part of retirement plans. We handle lots of them at Labrum Wealth Management, and we see lots of problems and deficiencies within 401(k) plans: unclear commissions, a lack of education, and a general savings crisis among many working Americans.

That’s why we’ve dedicated today’s episode to 401(k)s - and we’ve brought on 20-year 401(k) veteran...
