EP 142 | Profit Boss® Radio

Welcome to episode 142 of Profit Boss® Radio! As of this episode, I am taking a brief summer hiatus so that I can focus on the $50K Wealth Multiplier Experience and, more importantly, family and my daughter’s health. I do have some homework for you this summer and plenty of useful resources along the way, however!  

When is the last time you reviewed your and your spouse’s beneficiary elections for all your accounts to make sure that they everything is set up the way it should be? If you're scratching your head wondering when that might have been, it's probably been too long.

Your beneficiary elections are incredibly important. To ensure that your estate plan is executed properly in the event the need arises, you want to be certain beneficiary information is up to date. Learn the estate planning mistakes to avoid in this week's episode of Profit Boss® Radio.

Here’s what you’ll find out in this week’s episode of Profit Boss® Radio

  • The importance of making sure that beneficiary forms are up to date
  • The difference between gift tax and estate tax, and how it can impact your estate planning wishes
  • How people normally elect their beneficiaries (and the things you should consider when making these important decisions)
  • How I personally set up my estate for my daughter Harlyn
  • Why I generally don't recommend anyone inheriting an estate under the age of 35

EP 141 | Profit Boss® Radio

This episode originally aired on Profit Boss Radio Podcast, How to Buy Your Dream House in 28 Days in a Sellers Market Without Multiple Offers, 5/2/17

Welcome to episode 141 of Profit Boss® Radio! Over the last few episodes, we have been talking a lot about building your wealth. For many of you owning your own home will be a critical part of your wealth building journey. Also, investing is integral to building your wealth as well.

This episode is occurring not long after the April 15th tax deadline. So, I am taking a moment to talk about contributing to tax-deferred investment accounts and how it can help put you in a better position come tax season next year.

There are many shows on TV where they make home buying seem like such an easy-breezy experience. You select three homes and pick the one you like the best and then you move in. They do not show the behind the scenes process. In reality, there are many moving parts to navigate the real estate world, and I share some insightful tips in this episode.

Tune in to this week’s episode as I share how to qualify for mortgages, how to write and strategize your offer to stand out in a competitive situation, and so much more! I also reveal my own crazy whirlwind home buying journey that I believe provides excellent advice and encouragement to anyone preparing for their own real estate journey.

Here’s what you’ll find out in this week’s episode of Profit Boss® Radio 

  • The importance of investing in tax-deferred accounts
  • What are the yearly IRA contribution limits and deductions
  • My personal home buying journey
  • Understanding the up-to-date regulations in the home buying process
  • How to understand the mortgage process from beginning to end
  • Why mortgage debt is not bad debt

EP 131 | Profit Boss® Radio

Welcome to episode 131 of Profit Boss® Radio! In this week’s episode, I am providing you with tips on how to hire a financial advisor.

Why now? Well, because January and the first quarter of the year is a very popular time for people to get their financial house in order and when you are most likely to hire a financial advisor. Also, now is a great time to invest because you can essentially join the market while it’s on sale. Prices are low, making it a great time to start investing.

A question many of my listeners have, however, is where to actually start? Do you ask a friend, do a Google search? Attend an event? The answer is, yes! But with some parameters, of course.

A financial advisor can add tremendous value to your financial life, but it’s an important partnership that does take careful consideration.  Tune in to today’s episode as I have an honest conversation about what you should look for in a potential financial advisor. I also offer up some insider tips on ways to evaluate a financial advisor before hiring one.

What You’ll Find Out in this Episode:

  • Why now may be the right time to hire a financial advisor
  • What you need to know about the titles “financial advisor” and “wealth manager” and why can’t rely on titles alone to identify qualified financial advice
  • Where to start to hire a financial advisor
  • How you can make a savvy choice with whom you entrust your financial life
  • 4 categories to evaluate before you hire a financial advisor
  • Questions and conversations you should have with a potential financial advisor before hiring one

There is no accomplishment too small when it comes to your financial life, and any step in the right direction gets a well-deserved applause from me and your tribe of Proft Boss® listeners.

From saving more money and automating your finances to paying down debt and increasing your income, bravo ladies! From what I gather, 2018 was a breakout year for many of you with only more potential and opportunity in store for 2019.

Your stories, accomplishments, and plans for the New Year are truly inspiring. Congratulations to my guests in today’s episode: Joelle, Becky, Ylva, Dee, JC, Mary, and Lauren. And congratulations to all of you listening in with your own financial win stories. It is an honor to kick off 2019 celebrating you. Cheers!

What You’ll Learn from This Episode

  • Joelle making an empowered decision to get out of debt and then doing it!
  • And that’s not all! Joelle also amped up her financial game by saving 6 months of her income in an emergency fund, saved 20% of her income toward her future, grew her small business to the point she could spend three months in Portugal, and lives a life where her finances work for her instead of the other way around.
  • How Becky’s year was transformational. She purchased a car in cash, automated all her finances, was able to leave her part-time job, doubled her income, and is starting the year by opening her own practice.
