Taking the plunge into homeownership can be a big undertaking.

And in a hot real estate market like this, it's no wonder families are stressed out trying to make homeownership a reality.

One major topic that comes up time and time again is around the home down payment and if you REALLY need to go for 20% down or not.

We explore this question by looking at the pros and cons of going with a 20% down payment or not. 

Also, on our new "Internet Money" segment, we chat with Julie Berninger about how she made $10k by selling printables on Etsy!

Most of us are aware of traditionally retiring in our 60s or 70s and what life might be like when we’re old and gray.

Well, that’s what we’re going to discuss today and the person who’s going to help us with that discussion is Maggie Tucker.  

Maggie recently gave notice at her job and will be moving into early retirement this spring. We’re going to learn more about that decision, how she prepared and some advice for others interested in early retirement.

Technology has done a lot of wonderful things for us over the last decade. Tasks that were once extremely time-consuming or monotonous are now a lot more simple.

On the flip side, we can become extremely distracted by technology and it can keep us from focusing on what matters most. And for me, that’s family.

Why do you give?

If you ask five people this question, you're likely to get five different--and highly personal--answers.

But for many people, the idea of charitable giving is often rooted in their culture or religion.

Today, I'm diving deeper into religion and giving by interviewing three different faith leaders in Christianity, Judaism and Islam.

Recently, I shared a video on how our family lives comfortably on $80,000 per year. 

Some of the comments I received said this was definitely not enough to be comfortable, while others said that was plenty. 

That begs the question ... how much is enough to live comfortably?

Nicole and I explore the topic after a conversation she had recently with a friend.
