Should you invest or pay off debt?  And, if you invest, what order do you invest your money?  While these are common questions, straight forward answers can be hard to find.  Let the investing waterfall help you sort it out.

What You’ll Learn:

In the twelfth episode of Money Meets Medicine, “Investing Waterfalls,” you’ll learn whether or not this is the right time for you to invest, and more, including:

  • How the financial mistakes of my parents impacted my financial decisions
  • Are you “debt immune” or terrified to get into even a little debt
  • What is the proper “flow” of the investing waterfall?
  • Should you invest in your non-governmental 457 plan?
