Cash Flow According to Ben Stein

Yes, the same Ben Stein from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Ben recently wrote in the NY Times that he sold a “bit of stock” to raise some of the down payment on a house and the amount was $100,000 lower than he anticipated when he got his confirmation. I wish he would have told us how he picked the shares he sold and did he really have down payment money in the stock market? Just kidding Ben. Ben knew his exit strategy for the stock he sold-do you have a cogent strategy for generating cash flow? If you have never done it, sell some stock in your 401k or other brokerage account. Why…so you know you can do it. Either you are taking a profit or cutting your losses. Learn how to do the transaction and your financial courage will grow. Think about ways you may grow your financial courage and I will share with you some of the strategies that have worked for others.

    Consider investing in notes, mortgages and real estate using a Solo 401k. This is another way to diversify your retirement funds.
