We at Advicent are excited to be sponsoring today's episode of the Animal Spirits podcast hosted by Michael Batnick and Ben Carlson. For the listeners that may not be familiar with Advicent, we are the provider of NaviPlan – an industry-leading financial planning solution trusted by over 140,000 financial professionals across over 3,000 firms worldwide. This includes four of the top five custodians, 15 of the top 25 broker-dealers, seven of the top 10 North American banks, and seven of the top 10 North American insurance firms.

This episode is a listener mailbag edition where Michael and Ben address a variety of questions about retirement, personal finance, investing, markets, careers, and more. I had the honor of joining the discussion later in the episode to address some of these topics which you can find listed below with timestamps.
