I love living mortgage-free. The freedom our family has after we decided to pay off our mortgage early is incredible. 

But just because I love my paid-off house, doesn’t mean I think everyone should rush off and do that right away. There are other important financial actions to consider first. 

To help us discuss those other money moves, I’ve invited Brian Preston, from The Money Guy Show, on the podcast today. 

Episode Overview

Brian Preston and I review the following:

  • Why you shouldn't pay off your mortgage early
  • The importance of investing
  • A financial order of operations that makes the process easy

If you're struggling with the “pay off your mortgage or invest” debate, this conversation may help guide you as you decide what's best for you and your family.
