Listen In & Hear the Answer

Context is everything here, but this answer is relevant for anyone with or without a 401K employer match. We dive into if the 401k is the best use of your personal finances.


Here are the Foundational Things You Need To Do Before You Invest In A 401K

1. Do You Have An Emergency Fund?

We recommend building three months of liquid savings.

2. Open A ROTH IRA

A 401K is pre-taxed. A fully funded ROTH IRA gives you a bigger pile of liquid funds and allows you to withdrawal without penalty.

3. Time to Consider a 401K

But, if you're not getting a match... there still could be better options.
