(6:22) Alice wonders - "We're inheriting some money from in IRA which apparently we have to take out in the next ten years. What do we need to know to be smart about this?"

(10:14) Robin asks, "At 65 and 60 my husband and I feel like we are still "adulting." What are some resources that can help you decide when you can retire?"

(14:45) Tiffany wants to know, "Are there any good podcasts or blogs you’d recommend for Smart Money daddies? My husband is intrigued by all that I’ve been learning, and I might have actually inspired him a bit with my hard work!"

(17:25) Our last question is a fun one: "What did you say to your boss when you decided to leave the corporate world and start SMMs? How did the conversation go?"
