  • Spent the day working on finance - investments

    What? Yes. I basically spent the entire day, googling, reading, contacting my husband's company on what this and that means (401k).

    We contributed 30% maxing out the 401k. Given to charities as much as possible. Traditional IRAs has been set up. Now, I have to tell my husband to not work so much so I don't get a tax bill.    I'm running out of options. I need more options. I need to read more but my mind is all over the place! I'm so happy to have found this place. I've been on so many forums and when I would make a post no one replies. I felt alone and no one understanding our situation as a high-income earner family. Thanks for allowing those who are not medical doctors to be here. :P  Thanks for letting me share!

    This is a good place to be. Bogleheads, too. Plenty of high income / high net worth people there and willing to share.

    Get yourself a good book or two to cover the basics. Then come back and start reading about HSAs, backdoor Roths, donor advised funds, etc...

    Have fun!

      ...what are you going for?  Other than the obvious "have more money."  Seems like you're maybe trying to minimize your tax burden?

      Bogleheads is a pretty high-volume forum.  Might be some good luck there.  They have a tendency to sweep away "un-actionable" threads, though, so go in with a specific question.

        Feel to ask questions about your specific situation. If you provide enough details someone will offer their two cents.

          I don't think you will find a better forum for your situation. You may be feeling a little overwhelmed because you do not have a financial plan to use as a roadmap for making decisions. Suggest you read The One Page Financial Plan and Simple Wealth, Inevitable Wealth
