This Week: September 23rd, 2017

On September 23rd we aired a special live Saturday Membership Drive version of On Your Money. Joy and I devoted the entire show to learning how to “Get Ready to Retire”, and gave a copy of the On Your Money Mini-Money Booklet “Retire Early and Forever” to those who pledged ANY DOLLAR AMOUNT online at, or by calling 888.202.2552.

Our ambitious goal was 150 pledges during the hour, and the generous On Your Money listeners shattered that mark. As of the most recent counting, 379 listeners pledged during the show, and dozens more sustaining members contacted WPR to request their copy of “Retire Early and Forever”. Thank you so much! If you missed the show and weren’t able to pledge, listen to another new membership drive Tuesday morning at 8:00 a.m. Central on the Ideas Network, or send an email to On Your Money producer Bill Martens at [email protected]
