Is It Tacky to Talk About Money?

Today, we cover a broad range of topics from employee stock purchase plans to how to move on after you make a financial mistake. We discuss the difference between a traditional workplace 401(k) and a solo 401(k). We talk about 457(b)s and the tax implications of a K-1 form upon partnership, and we answer if you can have a solo 401(k) for each 1099 contract you have. We start this episode off discussing whether it is a good idea to be public about how much money you make and what you do with your money. At the end of the day, we believe everyone should be able to do whatever they want with their career and their income—but it is unlikely there is any good reason to be public about that unless you are trying to make money online.
