During this week’s edition of The Mailbag, we’ll be the ones asking the question!

The Greer Citizen hosted Greer Middle School student Emily Walker during a job shadowing assignment on Tuesday, and by the end of the day, we wanted to know what it would take for us to be as cool as her.

So we asked…

Q: After listening to your show, I want to try to get control of my finances, but I’m afraid to open up the bills. I make about $60,000 a year, but it’s a real struggle just to keep my head above water financially. My checking account is always overdrawn, and I don’t know where to start in catching up. Can you help?

Q: How long is too long to leave your Christmas lights up?


A: Ahh yes, the age-old question of when to stop celebrating the most wonderful time of the year. It’s a question that has been on the minds of many for generations.

Q: I’m a senior in high school here in Arkansas, and I think I want to study business in college. I’ve gotten an unusual offer from a small, out-of-state school. It revolves around a $3,000 student loan program, where the loan converts to a scholarship if I maintain a grade point average of 3.3 or higher.

Run from that guy

Q: My husband was recently laid off, and he has $229,000 in a 401(k). He has been told that he should roll it into a hybrid annuity. Is this a good idea?


DR: Absolutely not! It sounds to me like he’s been talking to an insurance agent instead of an investment advisor.

There’s no reason to put a 401(k) into an annuity.
