Something New I Learned: How to save more in your 401k
I learned how to save more in our 401k with a “cash balance” selection that is going to save a ton of money for us on our 2021 taxes.I’m in the process of setting this up for us and for some other friends who own businesses. The amount you can put into it depends on age, but goes up to over $300,000 on top of regular contributions and using a profit sharing option.

You can still get credit for it on your taxes for 2021 if you put it in place before you file. Ask your 401k provider and listen to episode 271 on the EDGE podcast where our guest Matt lays out an overview how to do it.

What I’m Re-Reading
The Intelligent Investor
Specifically chapters 8 and 20. If you don’t have this book, you’re missing out on one of the best investing books of all time. Read chapters 8 and 20 and you’ll know why I’m reading them right now. Best price I found is on Amazon here

What I’m Watching
Winning Time Series on HBO
In the early 1970 Jerry Buss (aka Dr. Buss) gave up a corporate career designing missiles for the US government to go into real estate. He made a fortune. Then in 1979 he put that entire fortune on the line with the purchase of the NBA’s lackluster Los Angeles Lakers. He even had to borrow two million dollars from his ex-wife to make it happen.

Talk about an entrepreneur who took high stakes chances and knew how to deal with people. Really good so far. Recommended.

What I’m Writing About for The EDGE’s Print Newsletter
A reminder why you need to hang tight and resist the temptation to sell when the market goes down. I’m using the stocks I bought in January of this year as an example how they can go down, but then shoot right back up.

Keep the Ukrainian people in your thoughts.

Have a great rest of your weekend!
