Will You Earn More From Your Career or Investments?

Duration: 5:41

For the very first time, there are more open jobs than there are people seeking jobs. This means there could be an opportunity for you to earn more money. But before you bail from your current role, listen to Ric Edelman’s advice on changing jobs in the current economy.

The Perils of Picking and Buying Individual Stocks

Duration: 6:52

Instead of trying to pick individual stocks, why don’t you just buy all of them? That’s the investment strategy that some investors use to create a truly diversified portfolio. Listen to Ric Edelman share the risks associated with trying to pick individual stocks and how poorly the pros perform when it comes to speculating about individual stocks.

Are You Supporting Your Adult Children?

Duration: 6:45

Half of all parents are financially supporting their adult children. More than 60 percent of these parents say they’ve jeopardized their retirement savings to pay bills for their kids. Listen to Ric Edelman explain how to talk to your adult children about your personal finances.

Why Are Individuals Responsible When Identities Are Stolen?

Duration: 5:30

A listener calls the show and observes how some scammers are targeting financial institutions and stealing individual identities. Yet, it’s the individuals who are still being held responsible — not the institutions. Listen to Ric Edelman discuss these challenges and what you can do to protect your identity.
