Darling is in New York darling. How are you been doing Better than I deserve, how can I help I believe, our eye so me and my wife. I let him out, the delays a memo, I will. You started a baby steps and early made a step too far come on, don't family house, In which we live, me and my wife, one house, and my sister, my line the other house Joanna show. How should we tackle approach to pay out the mortgage, wanted it to baby step for basic? If the onus on the baby's down the plan of like maybe we do know how to approach the situation. So why? What did her eyes? What does your partnership agreement on this house? I saw fit to state the everything It's fifty slash right now that balance
my face very expensive, Doing alone loan was six forty, eight right we don T silent, benign weeping, for four years and that every mother, but a hundred percent, but all of the reduction has been fifty. Fifty two, this point correct ok, and this is whose relative yours or your wife for who is me I for one house, then my sister and my body line the other one? Ok, so let's pretend that your wife inherited. Three hundred thousand dollars You wanted to play that on the mortgage. What would your partnership agreement say about that? While we are equally apply that, beyond a doubt in toys that markets.
I guess Bell the responsible for their less that's what I'm down. But if the will is there a written partnership agreement, not honor, you need one does late, because if you pay down on this mortgage number one you gonna be able to have a written document says you get your money back and the number two other points. We ve got is if you, if you pay half of it off, there's still a mortgage if they dont pay it, you get foreclosed on. So why not show omby amby issue like the over the relationship with them with family life Relationship like about lose their jobs like a both get sick. One of them could die thing thanks. Happen that even if they had good intent and good integrity, that isn't situation happens where there are unable to pay their portion.
Not not unwilling but unable for some wild region and I mean it. If there was a car wreck and cancer I mean you can have a union yourself in a real pickle here in your there now, I'm in here you got all that exposure now. This is why I don't like partnerships in general, so I dont know I tell you to do unless the state or the county allows you to split this homes ownership down the middle, and may you be create what what some areas would call zero lot line or a condominium too they I have and you won't have in their stand alone. Properties and your half could not before closed on. But otherwise, you're in jeopardy at all times that there still down here and it is not a matter of what they would like to do or how much you trust them. I've met all the people that all the things went wrong in their lives that never thought gonna go wrong in their life. And arm, and you can't control all the outside variables,
So you know Gus need a d. Failed written partnership and if you go stay on this deal, but you need life insurance, by the other one out and they one of your died as a part of that agreement, not called Man insurance in this agreement where your each other's beneficiaries, meaning if your brother died or your sister died. They them we left to you to buy them out by the other one out, and I M you- need agreements on what happens in divorce event of divorce or death or disability or drug use or dish interest, or the fall the all the big deal. We call them the screw up partnerships. And so on. Now, You do not know of a way to tell you how to protect yourself completely in this situation, but if you're going to stay on it, and I suspect you are I wouldn't be in it, but if you, if you're going to stay in it, then you're going to
have to have a detailed written agreement, and you need some key man, life insurance as a bare minimum nick Witherspoon, Lubbock, Texas. I Nick welcome that I've Ramsay show birthday things around sure? What's up? Well, Susan, I school before she gets round, and she had enough awarded in us and algorithms and scholarships to pay the semester, however shilling, have our glass and so it does not qualify for the federal programmes. Qualified school awarded scholarship. Is there anyway to know
look I shared with the school after the school about getting at least a scholarship. I understand the fat boy, but getting a scholarship put on her account so that we can make sure that we pass local ass master. I think you go shut down the administrative offices, I we're gonna quit your school. If you don't work this out, do, I need to take more classes mean if you need to take more than five growth of ours in order for it to all, be free. Take more hours but you don't need them to graduate. I understand that, but I'm saying you if they require that you just be a full damn student and five hours doesn't Oliver. You then go before I'm student thing extra before I'm students without stable, that's the problem. How did you get the great? How did what number hours? Were she taking way We got all the other programmes and got this got the scholarship before
I see where the full time was twelve hours, and this was the last master that she got ordered That's why I was thinking about going my last semester. Did she carry a followed? Yes, you did ok, That was the basis for her award right here and she went for free. Now she got a substantial decrease in to a not with these federal I, the tuition and scholarship you're, still to borrow money, Oh, I thought you said you got everything covered before and now it's not covered. She did thirty one to thirty one hundred dollars an scholarships Hell grants awarded to her if she were taken. How long I make them and what is a form of to obey generous Social, to accept seven more hours in order
loud and she gets it all, but let the thirty one hundred and twelve hours ride on the other you just gotta down administration should be viewed as a scholarship five hours, young people tat. While the balance has what I would like to sum up the school and what they do. They can decide upheld branch, and I can even on this- is that every measure. Don't all insurance is great if somebody else is paying for it, but if your footing the bill, One dental Dodd com is a much better way for my listeners.

Well, the fur two million to five million when tell a millionaire up about five million where people their money is two main areas like now thirty percent. The millionaires follow this model. Ok in one
They get their home paid off and two is their system, equally investing in their return I can answer for a one case, Roth, Irish and so on, and that's what all that shows are studying actual millionaires, not theory, but actual. And so you are on track to do both at a very young age which is going to put you in that one to five million dollar net worth very quick probably in your early thirties, it sounds like then that's gonna than other money is made if you wanna get up above ten million in other ways, but they wonder for the first one.

We asked a month if you make more than six hundred and forty dollars and a quarter and cordially us
you're. Very simple again. What did you take in? What did you spend the differences profit times? Your tax rate give you your estimate. The taxes in Europe to send your tax estimate in showed the way we do. That is, if there's money, you're tracking account cause you made a profit and want to your art dealer. Then we take that money out account. We hold back twenty five percent of it for taxes. Got a thousand dollars in there, and you want to take some out.

On under very hesitant on spending the money, I want your bite of insurance, a purchase, bang and open. Now this money can go down toilet and down the two Joypad, though another one of their number. One way it goes back down the tubes for poker players. They go back to the table. The number one why you walked away from the table, their proper at the proper time apparently,
yeah I want for without, while you gotta get at this, or at least you on that, ok, yeah! Well, that's the best placed to lose at all oh by government to try to do it again. But anyway, aside from that, the Erika commander money of any kind. From anywhere where we tell folks to do just walk right up what we call the baby steps and maybe step one, would be to become debt free, accept your home. Do you have any debt other than your home? Now Just my home- and I just pick up my truck- and that's the only good for you- that money- that I can also Ok, that's finishes what we call baby step to baby step three, is to set aside an emergency fund of three to six months of expenses and that's the guy. Grandma's Rainy day fallen in case something bad happened, and so what make a year at your at your day, job
school janitor and I make twenty six thousand dollars a year older you on twenty three and you made four hundred grand at the poker table? Yes that day, yet, while one story, one story, ok life changing amazing. Well, I'm glad that you're paranoid. That's your wise beyond your year that this scarce the up out of you and that's why, beyond your years? Well done on that? Ok, then the next thing, I'm gonna, those hold that emergency fund back and I mean getting old thousand bucks back will gather your emergency fund, then start investing fifteen percent of our income. Do you own a home, now currently right than apartment, and if you want to buy a property, this would be the stage at which you buy a property, and we would tell you to pay cash or if, at this age of your life, you're ready to buy a property, if not You may want to just start. Investing this money invested very conservatively, which sounds weird to tell a poker player that respect.
Four hundred grand, but I would very conservatively and out away, do that's just check in with a lot of our smart pressure. Prose they'll help you I'm not that investment business, but I endorse people but are happily and I'm just click programs. You got on with much more pressure will help
right for joining us imagine with larger weathers, open from the family to five five to two Diana is in or Lando Diana welcome. Today, Ramsay show hiding Thank you were thinking. My call German. What's up in your world, well, a baby. Six months ago, Thank you and I we bought it a year ago. Without those specific plans, now I'm considering will even my job to stay home The baby, and that puts us two thousand
dollars upside down on our budget. However, the only that we have is more mortgage and I have saved eighty thousand dollars, just in my account question is: should I use those money because I'm plenty and go back to work in a year or two or should we sell the house and downsize because, as the biggest expense, we have right now? No one household income now right now, we're both bring seventy five hundred dollars after tax each month a month. You get her out together here. You just thirty eight hundred dollars a month. I gotcha ok, and hung in. Are you your boat about? Half of that, as you have, is exactly me.
And show you make about forty five thousand dollars a year, and your house, where I met, is how big eighteen hundred dollars in turn. We have a five bedroom house, because I have to step children as well. They live with us part time got a bigger house? They different sex, you now the boy and girl different rules. Almost teenagers We made a decision year ago, two instead of women in Town House, and when can you buy a house so in my husband is also up to his ears in alimony, modern child support that I'm already counted for that without giving it up number. So after all, this stuff it will bring them. I am not sure how much other dead do you have a little, how she said: Merlin Right, none, artist, pay for credit card to pay off every month Ok, you quit your job and come home. This house is now roughly half
visit on pay and obviously that's absurd and so you ve got eighty thousand dollar saved and you're gonna subsidize you not working of that eighty thousand right here- don't you, burn through that. In order to keep this house exactly or are you are you are showing us how the house and move down dramatically? Ok, he's either either her aunt or by something smaller, ok, what we need to set your emergency fund aside and will call that twenty five one of the eighty just for around numbers. Ok, so you Don T have emerged If, in addition to the eighty, now that now I shall now we have sixty thousand dollars to burn through at too Thousand dollars a month, that's thirty months
in two and a half years, have to sell this house or go back to work and you all a barn through sixty thousand dollars. That's the thing I wanted, back to work. When my baby straight, I feel like the very first years as import, and the job we work is very demanding. So it's a big decision. Won't you you're, not gonna, have the money to wait. That long, because you got thirty months, that's not three! That's two and a half year when you have the baby six months ago, there will be three poker. That under third birthday, the house's either sold or your back in the saddle kiddo. Or your husband or your husband is doubled. His income on healthcare he's working on he's been in Teresa he's looking for it very but you see what I'm saying: here's the thing you can plan you have to have
in date to this cause, this car is gonna hit, but wall and it's gonna disintegrate mathematically. Suddenly, when this runs out and then you're gonna, look round wonder what happened and there's no reason wonder what happened. We can predict it. It's a very predictable thing! Thirty month, from today, you're gonna be broke and other house payment is fifty percent of his income. So so one of three or four things: hasn't happened, you're, gonna, say full house he's gonna double as income or your back at work, thirty months, today, your child's third birth? he's right: something is gonna happen, so let us go. Put that on the calendar and put on the refrigerator and let's keep talking about it. Working towards it and thinking about it, because I want you start looking for a job. Thirty months from today, you have to start looking for a job. Two years from today,. I agree or the sound the ard two years from today
that way. You got six months are pad here and this thing than melt down on you see what I'm doing with his mouth, the Anderson Man that my question, I guess, as you know, when you love, but how is the EU that are you love the house this much, not really? No, I thought you might want to sell it moved down. It would change these numbers dramatically. That's what I'm doing in the wine, as you know the good time to sell it now, my husband doesn't get the income. Where am I doing How much are you willing to fight to keep the house? How much do you love it if you love it a lot, you got thirty months. I don't love it unjust, talkin to you right now, right, not eleven at all. If I'm, u and down and house, because I want more margin at this hour, Burnham lady, granted to article eighty ground, the bank and using all set fire to it. Here you don't put on them. Front yard, how a bonfire they thousand bucks and that's what you're doing. That's! Ok, if at Europe,
always and you're doing that in order to be homeward. Maybe and keep this house, but you may for the baby and be in a different house, and the whole thing takes takes a lot of pressure over this because these numbers are really if you're not eighty thousand and the bank, it may just be over we'd- be put nostalgia for so right now. I wouldn't be wouldn't really big rush anymore. Gave you that option is, do you gonna burn up sixty grand in this case, sixty of the eighty some interesting question: do you talk to I'm glad you're, making the quite I'm glad you're, making the decisions on purpose before it blows up on. You show your very wise in that regard. Good job creation, is weathers in Green Bay was constant high growth. Outcome of the diver amnesia gave me a beer. Have you. How can I help you, then you think you re a chauffeur, not succeed. Here and got Europe your book. I told money, make over and very
what about all this but do have one question regarding my circumstances Kristen Pastor, and so I live in that sure enough at church on parsonage sure, that's Inflation is that they have a home for me to know then go and then and addressed, in my denomination nation, has a very strong pension, planets boy funded fiscally sound that'll pay me percent of my income when I retired fabulous still. He adds wonderful, so given us the facts: what does what is based? That's five and six look like for me: Well, five, kids college. We have discuss that. Are they furnishing college? It you're denomination Then you gonna be saving for your gets college by we step for saving for Percent of your income, I would still do that because, in addition the attention you need. Some other monies
the original mistake in the house with a wise or stores of choice, food and oil. It says in proverbs wise people say money in. As far as baby steps, six goes. Obviously you don't have a home to pay, often wouldn't want you to go via house when you got a parsonage, but some day, you're gonna retire and you're, not gonna, be in the parsonage and you're gonna need a house right, but I shall I might make baby six saving to pay cash for my house fund in the future. Out there somewhere when I retire- I'd like to have fallen not our sitting there to disrupt a house that being the same as by an all vows only or paying yourself in your sees you to do that, cause you're living in the parsonage as part of your per compensation claims, but the question that sounds like you have some wonderful benefits part of the support of that particular denomination variable farewell down very good stuff,
The calls for preserving the Lord. This is that I Ramsay Shell your line of refreshment. How are very treatment. They think you you taking my car, I I have a question and turn it into how to prepare for anticipated financial changes coming up in the summer, and if I should treat them as three b,

We know that are coming out and we we have saving to include emergency, find an a down for how?

Already earmarked a wire baby as emergency fund? What's wrong with that men are for whatever we knew. We were both the national favours, Ediths gray eyes, and it terrifies us to stop this. You have two years of income Ok, ok! So now you don't need to save him. You have ten years of income saved if twenty five thousand energy on extra hundred grand lying around for a down payment, block cars and a translation if we're case scenario, happens when you do all three at one time, and you got a hundred
