5. Invest 15% into Roth IRA for retirement.
6. Fund college for the kids. Some people think that they need to make sure to fund their kids college. Let me remind you that kids can get loans for college. You can not get a loan to retire! Put the retirement before the college fund.
7. Pay off the house early. Once all these things are funded you can really accelerate the house payoff. When it’s paid off you can begin to do all the things you’ve always wanted to do.
8. Build wealth and give it away. How freeing would it be to help others out when they need it.
