Would You Like To Secure a Satisfying Retirement in Today’s World Which Requires Different Tools and Ammunition Than It Did In The Past?
“I know people who make a lot of money, but what are you doing to create wealth? Your answer to that question can be the difference between you experiencing your American Dream or you American Nightmare.” – Nate Scott
The Retirement Landscape Has Changed. People today are responsible for their retirement savings and well-being more than ever before. That makes it crucial to not only be aware of the issues, trends and opportunities available to you, but to also ask the right questions. While traditional retirement questions can include, how much do I need to save, how long will my savings last, and what’s the best asset allocation for my investments, the single, most important retirement question anyone can ask is:
What’s the one thing you hope no one ever finds out about your retirement plan?
Is it a financial worry such as the fact that you’re behind in savings or troubled by the loan you took against your retirement plan? Are you concerned about the potential costs of helping adult children, an aging parent, or the changes to Social Security benefits or your company pension?
You don’t have to look far to find validation for your concerns or feel like your alone in dealing with these financial worries and concerns.

Traditional Retirement Planning and Investing Is Broken. I wish the list ended with the challenges in personal retirement savings, Social Security, and pension. However, health care costs and supporting both adult children and aging parents further complicate the traditional retirement planning formula:
- A couple retiring in 2014 is expected to need $220,000 (in today’s dollars) to cover health care costs in retirement. That figure does not include any costs associated with nursing-home care, and applies only to retirees with traditional Medicare insurance coverage. Source: Fideity.com

These eye-opening statistics shed some light on the challenges people face in making it to and staying comfortable in retirement. For the most part, people are left to figure out how they can: work more hours and save more money to address any funding gaps; protect against a stock market crash like that of 2001 and 2008-2009; deal with a potential reduction in Social Security payments or a tax increase to fix it; not to mention for the lucky few with a pension, the need to figure out what to do if benefits are reduced as a result of a company bankruptcy.
These financial realities can paint a pretty startling picture but what most people and aren’t being told about retirement is that it’s not just a financial event. There are personal factors you have to think about and plan for as well.
Private matters that you hope no one ever finds out about such as whether or not your marriage will survive the extra time you’ll be spending together after years apart and focusing on kids or other things. Challenges associated with replacing your work identity, staying connected and relevant, as well as keeping mentally and physically fit?
In This Book, You Will Discover Why and What You Need To Know About Becoming An Entrepreneur
Starting A Business Is Retirement’s Biggest Secret. You see, behind every problem is a hidden truth, a solution they can become the catalyst for our ultimate success and for living life to it’s fullest extent. That a powerful statement that opens the door of considerations when it comes to retirement planning. It’s reveals retirement’s biggest and best kept secret. Starting a business is one of the best ways to address both the personal and financial concerns people have with retirement.
To start, there are a number of financial and tax benefits that never make it into traditional retirement plan conversations. First, owning a business can actually reduce the amount of risk you have in your retirement plan. A small business has what is called a low correlation to the stock market. That means if the stock market falls 10%, the income you receive from your business won’t necessarily fall by the same amount.
Whether you’re in network marketing or you’re running a home-based business, the orders you process or the fees you charge clients won’t go down by 10% simply because the stock market did. That’s an important component of diversification that doesn’t get talked about enough, especially since market corrections of 10% or more happen on average once every year.
Starting a retirement business also takes a page out of the handbook of the rich and powerful. The one consistent factor you see among the wealthy is that their fortunes are rooted in a business, which either they or someone in their family started.
Their fortunes are tied to entrepreneurship, hard work, leadership, and a desire to make a difference in their community and in people’s lives. Furthermore, with some savvy estate planning, their efforts and businesses can pay dividends for multiple generations.
Other financial considerations pertaining to a retirement business include tax benefits. Retirement is often a time for people where they carry few tax deductions since their children have moved out and their home may already be paid off. Tax savings may not dramatically change your retirement lifestyle but writing off common items like the list below can surely help fund other essential parts of life in retirement.
Home office; Office supplies; Mileage; Web, software and subscription costs; Travel, meals, and entertainment; Insurance premiums; Retirement contributions; Telephone charges; Business startup expenses; Professional services; New Equipment; Education Expenses; Advertising and promotion; Coffee & beverage service; Seminars & trade shows; Postage, etc

The Higher You Want To Go and The More Success You Desire in Any Endeavor, The Greater The Likelihood Is That You Will Need A Mentor or A Personal Coach
Who Is Your Coach or Your Mentor? More importantly, is the person qualified to guide you where you want to go? Has the person “been there and done that?” My experience is that most people don’t have someone to guide them and who will tell them the truth.
The reason is because telling the truth can be risky – people tend to get their feelings hurt. Everyone is busy protecting the relationship, and the reality is that the relationship is superficial or fake to begin with; my mask being in a relationship with your mask. It just doesn’t work very well. The problem with this scenario is this: You Can’t Change A Lie. You can’t change what you aren’t aware of or conscious of and most of us are unaware of what we’re doing or thinking that is producing the results in our lives. “Life Is Rich: How To Create Lasting Wealth” will serve as your mentoring guide and help you to learn “how to think” vs “what to think” so that you can get real with yourself and with others.
I am the foremost authority on residual income financial planning strategies. To my knowledge, there is no other person with my academic and professional background documented for teaching real world financial principles with entrepreneurship as the foundation for creating lasting wealth. More importantly, there isn’t another person sharing their personal story of how they applied experiences from an untraditional education to become a documented millionaire before receiving a financial education and starting a career as a licensed financial advisor followed by a position as Chief Financial Officer for a mortgage and real estate technology company once listed as #155 on INC500 fastest growing companies. My story provides a somewhat unique perspective.
