In this episode, I talk about the meaning of financial security, financial independence, financial freedom and financial significance.
Some of these terms are overused and great cocktail party material, but what do they mean, and what do they mean to you? I discuss all of these terms and concepts and discuss what they mean to me and also talk about how layering these goals can help you obtain the summit and vision you have for your life. Most people invest in their self-development and financial education and immediately have their sights set on financial freedom before achieving financial security and financial independence. While I think it is possible to go from broke to achieving financial freedom, I think we can increase the success rate by achieving security and independence first.
I finish off the episode talking about financial significance and how it is important to know what is important to you before setting goals and the vision for your life.

In this episode, we are discussing the concepts and meaning of the terms "price", "cost" and "value". There is a very big difference between the price of any product and or service, the real cost of the product and service and the value that this product and or service is providing to us in our lives.
We look at why it is important to evaluate every decision to buy a product and or service, or an asset by looking at the price, the real cost and the value that it will add to our lives. I use the examples of home ownership, investing in the same single family property and renting the same investment property. I also look at a practical example I come across in my wealth management and education firm looking at term insurance versus permanent life insurance.
I am honored to have one of the top Bitcoin experts in the world the show, Roger Ver. Roger Ver has been a long time proponent of voluntaryism, the idea that all human interactions should be by mutual consent, or not at all. He doesn't make exceptions for people wearing uniforms and working in buildings with flags in front. He is most well know for his work promoting Bitcoin. In 2011, his company, Memorydealers.com , became the first mainstream company to start accepting bitcoin as payment. He then went on to createBitcoinstore.com, the first website in the world to accept bitcoin as payment for hundreds of thousands of items, and was the impetus for the future wave of merchant adoption. He also became the first person in the entire world to start investing in Bitcoin startups. Nearly singlehandedly, he funded the seed rounds for the entire first generation of Bitcoin businesses.
In this episode, we are looking at how to fund your children’s and or grandchildren’s college tuition, while maximizing your economic opportunity.
There is a strategy that not many people are aware of when saving and paying for college, and it is actually criminal that people are still forced into cookie cutter Wall Street vehicles and government qualified plans for college planning that parents and grandparents have no control over, have no safety of capital and is extremely economically inefficient as far as taxes and fees. Wall Street recommended products also penalizes students that have monies saved up for their college in these cookie cutter vehicles.
We look at an alternative strategy based on the Infinite Banking Concept and philosophy and also look at how the wealthiest families structure trusts that perpetuate the wealth that this strategy enables for generations.
The world's monetary system changes historically every 30 - 40 years. We have seen three changes just in the last century in 1914, 1944 and 1971. We are due to a change in the monetary world order, but what would replace the dollar standard and the US Dollar as the world's reserve currency? I approach this speculative topic by looking at an extremely big event that is happening on October 1st that is not reported at all in the financial media. The International Monetary Fund is adding the Chinese Yuan to its basket of reserve currencies called the SDR or Special Drawing Rights. The United States government fiscal year also ends on September 30th and Congress will have to approve another spending bill by September 30th for the United States government to still function from October 1st. I look at other events and scenarios that could play a factor in the new monetary system if there is a change coming. Do not miss this episode!
