      OPM & Infinite Banking - The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating savers & investors. During this show we’ll deal with an aspect of OPM that only 2% of investors are aware of. We hope you’ll be able to take advantage of it to build your wealth. If you’re wondering if these OPM strategies really work – I can assure you I take full advantage of them and have build my wealth by doing it, and doing it well. In other words I don’t just talk the talk, “I walk the talk”.
     
           Once you understand that it’s not difficult to earn more on your investments than it costs to borrow today, you’ll want to take advantage of as many sources of low cost debt as possible. Our goal is to share those sources with you ! If you have some pre-conceived notions about buying insurance, or have been frustrated getting loans from banks, then maybe it's time to learn about “Infinite Banking”. You should have no problem developing a good relationship with this new banker and qualifying for a loan, since you will “Be Your Own Banker”! So rather than paying interest to someone else, why not pay it to yourself? If this sounds too good to be true, or you've never heard of this concept, I'm sure you'll really enjoy this show.
     
         Our guest Thomas DeSchutter , a Partner at Bloom Strategies and vice-chair of the Small Business Council at the Vancouver Board of Trade, has a background in financial planning and helps clients create inter-generational wealth.
     
    Just imagine that the only debt you have at retirement is debt to yourself, then grab a cup of coffee, tea, glass of wine, or your favorite beverage and join us.

     Afford the Good Life - The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating savers & investors. One of the basic questions we should ask ourselves periodically: Why do I Invest? Although each of us may have slightly different reasons, there appear to be 2 common responses.
          1. To continue to afford the good life after I stop working, and       2. I have to !
    Even if we're frugal and avid savers, putting our savings into a bank account, safe or in a tin can buried underground, we won't be increasing our net worth. By saving AND investing we're able to build wealth much faster. Early in our career savings will be the most important contributor, and as our nest egg grows, our investing and compounding can add far more to our net worth than our savings. 
    This all sounds so logical, when you're in the group well on their way to becoming wealthy, and having the good life throughout their lives. For those in the rat race group struggling to accumulate enough each month to make their monthly payments, this good life is merely a theoretical discussion. What are the key differences between these 2 groups? Is it their habits we discussed recently? Could it be their level of Financial Literacy? Is it their mindset? Education level? Or is it their employer who decides their fate as to which group they are destined for? 
    Our special guest Richard Melancon will shed some light on the topic, help answer these questions, and provide some tips to avoid bankruptcy and exit the rat race. Who knows - he may even share some strategies for saving on taxes. Richard Melancon is a CPA, Business Consultant,  Professional Speaker & Author of 3 books. We'll be focusing on his first book: You Can Afford the Good Life. His other books focus on helping companies & managers to implement best practices used by effective businesses.

    Other People's Money - Part I
          The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating savers & investors. During this pre-recorded show we’ll deal with one of the most contentious debates – Should I pay off my mortgage early? If not, then how should I invest that money? And this topic is directly related to some of the most common questions we get: Is there good debt, or is all debt bad? What is the highest return guaranteed investment? Should I ignore the financial advice I got from my parents & grandparents? Where will I get the money for a down payment or to invest in a new business? What's the source of some of these commonly held beliefs?
     
           This show will take some listeners outside of their comfort zone, since we’ll be challenging their long held beliefs. Long held beliefs are just like habits we’ve developed over many years. We don’t question why we do what we’ve always done, unless someone points out the benefits of changing, or the risks of continuing. The key question you should consider during this show: Would I rather be debt free, or financially free? 
     
           We’ve tried to anticipate & answer your key questions, since you won’t be able to ask them during this show. This show was originally recorded on July 11, 2011, against a backdrop of Declaring Independence. Are you ready to Declare Financial Independence? If so grab a cup of coffee, tea, glass of wine, or your favorite beverage and join us for the Other People’s Money – Part I ...

     State of the Housing Market - The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating savers & investors. During this show our returning guest Michael Orr will help educate us on a major asset class, which affects each of us whether we invest in residential real estate, we own a home, or we rent. I've said before that once housing prices start to rise rapidly, we can expect housing to be kicked out of the US CPI just like food & energy. Although as far as I know, we don't have a single listener who can avoid eating, consuming energy, and living somewhere !
     
           It's been a full 3 years since we had Michael Orr on the show, and I forget that most listeners don't have regular access to the information he provides in the Cromford Report and as Director of the Real Estate Center Theory & Practice at the WP Carey School of Business at Arizona State University (ASU). So you may not know that his prediction on the housing market bottom, the rapid rise, and the plateau in prices starting late in 2013 happened just as he stated. I can assure you, he's not like one of the talking heads just sharing his opinion ... he bases his predictions on facts and trends. And no one has better data on housing than he does.
     
           So has the resurgence of housing prices just begun? Are we in another bubble? And what are the indicators he suggests we use to navigate this important asset class? We'll cover these topics and many more, so prepare your questions for THE expert, grab a cup of coffee, tea, glass of wine, or your favorite beverage and join us for the State of the Housing Market ...

     Escaping Oz - The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating savers & investors. Although what does the Land of Oz or the Wizard of Oz have to do with saving & investing? If Dorothy & Toto in that classic tale, were escaping poverty in the Land of Oz, the connection would be more obvious - but they weren't.
     
          Our special guest Jim Mosquera will clarify what we're escaping from and why he helped us chose this show title. Jim is a Principal at Sentinel Consulting, and operates The Sentinal, an economic and financial web-site. In addition to being a frequent contributor to various publications on economic and financial topics, he's an Author of two books on "E$caping Oz".
     
          Few people were expecting a global recession of the magnitude we experienced in 2007 – 9 and very few were able to escape unscathed from the wide-spread and devastating destruction of capital. Did you survive and thrive so that you'll be able to endure another devastating recession if it comes in the near future? Was your portfolio properly positioned to grow during the last 10 years? Are you properly positioned for the next decade? These are difficult questions and we'll be asking our guest to help us navigate through the choppy waters that we will face sometime in the future. So prepare your questions and join the conversation …

          Managing your Income Tax - The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating savers & investors. Becoming Wealthy requires the ability to earn more than you (and your spouse) spend, and staying Wealthy requires the skill to retain and grow what you've accumulated ... and stopping the tax man from taking too big a share. At least 50% of people complain that they pay too much in taxes, so we'll share a number of strategies you may be able to use in 2014 and for many years to come.


          We want to make each show relevant to our listeners around the world, this year as well as 20 years from now. So we'll focus on tax strategies and let you research the details for your situation. Have you ever wondered if you should pay more taxes this year in order to save on taxes in future years? For most of us there will be years when we should! Do you resent the fact that others take advantage of loop holes you weren't even aware of? Most good tax management strategies will be viewed as loopholes by those who didn't take the time to learn about them. Should you pay a good CPA or tax attorney? Or should you invest in gaining more tax knowledge? Are taxes one of the guarantees in life?


           To get these answers and learn a number of tax management tools ... grab a cup of coffee, or glass of wine and join the conversation …

          Financial Literacy: Blame your Parents ! - The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating savers & investors. If you're one of the billions of people around the world who are not, and may never be wealthy, we have a simple explanation (aka excuse) it's your parents fault ! Your parents weren't wealthy, they didn't know much about personal finances, and even less about investing wisely, so how could they teach you? Now do you feel better? Do you feel any wealthier now?


          The big question: will history repeat itself, and your kids will blame you because they're struggling financially? We invited a parent who chose to buck that trend as our special guest. He isGregg Murset, who has earned the CFP, ChFC, and many other certifications, but most importantly is the founder and CEO of My Job Chart, a web based company with an ambitious mission. My Job Chart grew from his desire to find a way to teach his kids to about work ethic, accountability, responsibility, time management and making smart money decisions. Sounds like a great idea - but is that possible?


          Do you want to become wealthy, and help your kids and future generations to benefit from what Gregg Murset is doing? If so - you won't want to miss this show ! Grab a cup of coffee, or glass of wine and join the conversation …

           Rich Habits - The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating savers & investors. During this show our guest will definitely help educate savers & investors on what good habits and bad habits they have. Have you heard the old adage "Understanding the Problem is half the Solution"?  Certainly each of us can find examples of what others are doing wrong & what they should do differently. But it's much harder when the "other person" is the one we see in the mirror! So why not analyze many different people - some Rich and others Poor, and see what we can learn from them? 


     
          To save you a lot of time, we decided to bring on a guest who has already done that research. More importantly he's analyzed their habits and documented them so we can see our similarities and differences with theirs. Given a choice – I certainly would prefer to develop the Habits of the Rich, and eliminate the habits I share with Poor. Our guest Thomas C Corley is a CPA, a Financial Planner,  and CEO of the Rich Habits Institute. He is passionate about financial  independence, and trains businesses, individuals, and students to become financially successful. Thomas C Corley is also the author of the #1 Bestseller Rich Habits - The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals.
     
          So if you'd like to learn more about the person you see in the mirror - you won't want to miss the show. So prepare your questions, grab a cup of coffee, tea, glass of wine, or your favorite beverage and join us for some great tips on developing Rich Habits

             Investor Behavior - The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating savers & investors. It's been quite a while since we talked about the 2nd Commandment of Investing - so it's time to do it again. Many people spend more time planning their vacation than they do analyzing their portfolio. How about you? Do you know which investment decisions were good, which were bad, and which were ugly? What were the factors that inspired each of those decisions? Are you being to conservative? Or maybe taking on too much risk?


          Why do we make the investment decisions we do? Is it bad advice, the wrong advisors, or is it our decision methodology? Certainly there must be some research to help us understand why we and others behave as we do! Yes - there is, and we've invited Prof. Victor Ricciardi to join us. He's a leading expert on the academic literature and emerging research issues in behavioral finance. Now you might be wondering what  behavioral finance has to do with your portfolio decisions? Well that's one of the many topics we’ll cover - so join the conversation …
