To maximize your income, it is important to understand how capital gains work in the short and long term.

- The FIRE movement has been around for some time. Today, many of us are interested in learning more about it, either by reading books and blogs, watching videos, or listening to podcasts. I believe listening to podcasts is an effortless way to learn something new or keep up to date on any topic while you go through your day. For those who love to listen to podcasts, Coach Carson offers a great resource in his post to learn more about the FIRE movement – The 12 Best FIRE (Financial Independence, Early Retirement) Podcasts.

When done right, the Roth IRA can be a valuable investment strategy, but not everyone uses this tax-free investment vehicle. The author of Smart Money MD highlights the benefits of investing in a Roth IRA in the article – Why a Roth IRA should be considered in every doctor’s household.
