Conquering financial freedom looks different for every individual, but there are dozens of ways to find one’s own path to True Wealth (combination of strong finances, health, family and friends). We believe that most people can achieve this if they put their mind to it and take steps to move forward. This site is a treasure trove of ideas and inspiration!

Episode details

Jerry, Greg and Bob discuss

Jerry's trade of the week - Selling an October AAPL put at the 100 dollar strike for $2.26 x 100 - in the profit and loss profile below, you can see that he plans to sell around 9/25 for 50% of his profit target, as long as the stock stays where it is today. For $1,798 of margin used, that would be a 6% return in 2 weeks!

Greg reviews the Rule of 72 - how to calculate what it takes to double your money based on a given return.

We discuss the 4% Rule, or how to live happily in retirement preserving your core income.
