Did you know, that successfully avoiding risk can be more important to your wealth than finding great returns? ⚠️ But most people (including financial planners) think they can “manage risk” when they’re simply hiding the risk instead. Don’t let this bite you.🦈 Learn from a real-life story of Steve Wynn’s Mirage Hotel & Casino + the fact that “In the last fifty years, the ten most extreme days in the financial markets represent half the returns. Ten days in fifty years!” In 1911 the Supreme Court ruled Life Insurance was a Transferable Asset, and Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote the court opinion saying life insurance is one of the “…best recognized forms of investment and self-compelled saving.” Discover how you can manage risk through whole life insurance in a way that’s impossible through the Stock Market alone.   Resources: Supreme Court Ruling Grigsby v. Russell (1911) - On Life Insurance as Transferable Property How to Read a Life Insurance Illustration - Video   The Black Swan - book by Nassim Taleb

Are you having to pay more income tax for 2018 than you planned?🇺🇸 Jack Cohen CPA joins us for a quick interview to share what he’s seeing as 2018 returns are processed. You may not be getting as big a tax refund this year because of the way withholding is calculated under the new law...instead, you most likely keep more with every paycheck. The IRS will be releasing a new W-4 form later this year which could complicate withholding for employees. Most Americans are indeed paying less federal income tax overall UNLESS you live in a high-income/property tax state like California, New York, New Jersey or Illinois. Section 199A of the new law is great for business owners, but there are special situations CPAs are working through for the first time. Small changes can significantly affect your bottom line and calculations can be complex. Good idea to get a second opinion if your 2018 return doesn’t seem quite right.

Is your insurance agent wanting you to exchange into a new life insurance policy? Should you do this?   Here’s an overview with Pros and Cons and what you want to know to decide whether a 1035 is the best idea for you.   Also some clarification around when it makes sense to take a policy loan - triggered by a recent conversation with Dr. Jim.

hi guys I came across your podcast and thought I would listen to it. But episode 187 was essentially devoid of any meaningful information. I was waiting for the meat of the meal should be put on the table and all I kept getting was appetizers. I'm kind of using that metaphor because I think you overdid it with the metaphors as well. cover the 5 w's and give specific examples would be helpful. I ran a radio talk show Program for a couple of years and I know you have to fill up time. I get that but make sure you get concrete information out along the way. like most things in life that are free they still have to bring value or else your time ends up being wasted. Cheers and good luck
