Join Mike Cavaggioni with Michael Soroko and Zach Zenda on the 49th episode of the Average Joe Finances Podcast, as they discuss the benefits of working with financial advisors—or, as per Soroko, “the CFOs of your finance.”
In recent media, subjects like DOGE Coin and GameStop have created non-stop buzz in business and investing. As a result, more people are getting into cryptocurrencies and the stock market from their homes. For our guest financial advisors, this is both good and potentially dangerous.
Today, Michael Soroko and Zach Zenda talk more about retirees’ common regret, the Robinhood-Era of stock market investing, and the High-Earners-Not-Rich-Yet demographic, better known as the HENRYs.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
● Coming from families with business and finance DNAs; Why you need to work with a financial advisor
● The dangers of the different media hype(s) to your finance and how financial advisors come in as your guidance
● Here’s what most retirees regret not doing with their money at an early age; Your money needs to have its ‘why’ and compass
● When taking out from your retirement plan or 401(k), there are factors you need to take into consideration to ensure what you’re nettinggoes a long way
● Mike and Zach: On portfolio diversification and where financial advisors go to invest.
