Tanja Hester realized at a young age that even though she loved her career, she was still helping an organization chase THEIR goals instead of her own, and that's when her plan to make work optional was hatched. On today's show she'll talk about not only her story, but also about how she and her husband tracked their progress (dual spreadsheets!), discussed the timing of leaving, and downsizing her lifestyle. She also shares potential struggles she sees down the line, like rising health care costs. Whether you wish to retire early, or just retire someday, this is an interview for you.

Plus, attorney Leslie Tayne will help us answer the Haven Life line call for help from Vince, who is worried that his mother is going to be on the hook for some loans she's co-signed. How does she remove herself if the main signer is nowhere to be found?

In our headlines segment, we'll discuss 401(k) jargon. What terms do you must struggle with? We'll also share some advice for the upcoming Valentine's day holiday.

And don't worry... we'll still have time for Doug's trivia.
