  1. Hello,
    While you were working, what was the order of your contributions? As this author argues against Trad IRA contributions… The Tax Bomb In Your Retirement Accounts: How The Roth IRA Helps You Avoid It (Scandlen Sustainable Wealth Series Book 2) Kindle Edition

    • Hi Sam, I set up my 401k to automatically contribute a certain amount of my paycheck each year first in order to get the free money from company matching. I also maxed out my Roth IRA every year.

  2. Hello,
    What is your take on dividend ETFs in general? And specifically MTUM and SCHD?
    I’m not a finance person and still early in my investment journey.

    • I’ve seen SCHD mentioned a few times. I’ve never really looked into it. My experience has historically been with Vanguard. I know other companies like Fidelity are trying to compete and so they’re creating similar ETFs. I’d say go with one that’s most convenient for whatever broker you use. Be sure to look for low expense ratios.
