             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 …

          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 …

During this show we'll be focusing on the recently mandated health insurance in the US. Certainly some people are glad to have insurance, others happy to get subsidies financed by "the Rich".

Will it meet it's promise to slow the increase in health care costs? What are the benefits for us? What are the negatives?

    Investment (aka Mutual) Funds ! 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 and share a few great tips in the process. How are you currently investing your money? Are your retirement funds predominantly in investment/mutual funds? Is all or a portion of your portfolio managed by someone else? Nearly half of US households own investment funds, so we assume most of our listeners do. Is that a good thing?
     
           There has been a lot written about the performance of actively managed vs. passively managed investment funds, and we can't seem to get a definitive answer. So what can we do? We decided to get to the bottom of it by bringing in Prof. David Nanigian of The American College to share his perspective based on extensive research. After all, he should know and be unbiased, since he teaches financial advisors about these investment funds. If you missed our prior show on Indexed CD's when Prof. Nanigian was our guest, you just might want to listen to that discussion too.
     
           Since we have an expert on Investment/Mutual Funds as our guest, we'll also dig into more detail about how to take advantage of alpha, beta, as well as ETF's which are often based on index funds. If your financial advisor tends to obfuscate even the simplest topics to make it seem that you couldn't be successful without their help - you just might bring them back down to earth after tuning into this show ! So grab a cup of coffee, or glass of wine and join us for some fun and financial education …

          Nutrition for the Mind! - The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating savers & investors. During this show we'll be focusing on the "D" in Wealth DNA, specifically your mindset toward money management. Are you focused on having money to spend today, or on building long-term wealth? Are you already convinced you'll be wealthy? Or are you convinced that it's not possible? The answers to these questions might be among the best indicators of your future wealth !

He will be sharing with us 'Life's Golden Buckets', a money management system he developed.

      What will 2015 bring? - The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating savers & investors. The beginning of every New Year is a great time to reflect on what transpired last year, and prepare for what's likely to happen in the upcoming 12 months of your life. The easiest prediction to make is that recent trends will continue for another year. It's much harder to foresee turning points, especially those the majority of investors say won't happen. So what happens to your portfolio and income if you stay the course and some of these turning points occur? Very likely you'll lose money, or miss out on some great opportunities to earn far more.


          Our returning guest H.L. Quist (aka the Myth Buster) has an excellent track record of predicting these turning points by following many trends & connecting seemingly unrelated events. Given his track record in predicting market cycles, what questions would you want to ask him? Are you excited or worried about the dramatic decline in oil prices? Depending on where you live you may be concerned about the buying power of your local currency, since some Central Banks are slowing down their printing presses while others are investing in more paper, ink, and asset repurchases. What would happen if your portfolio if both the 6 year bull market in equities & 35 year bull market in bonds suddenly reversed? What hedges do you have in place?


          This show should be at or near the top of your New Year priorities, and during the hour we just might suggest a few more priorities! So if you've lived to see 2015, don't miss this show ! Grab a cup of coffee, or glass of wine and join the conversation …

    Financial Literacy - Blame Yourself ! The Wealth DNA radio show is dedicated to helping you increase your wealth, as well as educating savers & investors. We continue our series on Financial Literacy, focusing on YOU and paving your path to financial independence. Are you well on your way to becoming Wealthy? Are there some obstacles on that path? Is your level of Wealth DNA high enough to make it to your ultimate goal? Who are some of the people in your life who held you back?


    For those who have not yet achieved financial independence, or concerned you'll never make it – we had several shows in this series aimed at finding the root cause. We decided blaming your parents may be accurate, but doesn't help. We then suggested blaming your teachers and schools – who probably didn't provide you the financial skills you need, but that didn't help either. So maybe you can blame your employer? Maybe your maker?


    Our special guest Larry Winget will share the answer as to who to blame. Larry Winget, also known as the Pit Bull of Personal Development,is a straight shooter and won't mince words. He's the author of 6 bestseller books including:  "Grow a Pair", "Shut up Stop Whining & Get a Life" , and "You're Broke because You want to be". He's worked with 400 of the Fortune 500 companies and has been a guest on CNN, MSNBC, Fox, PBS and many other programs. What's some of his advice to increase your Financial Literacy? Which of his books should you buy yourself and your kids for Christmas? Grab a cup of coffee, or glass of wine and learn the answers …
