And if your employer has chosen your health benefits for the majority of your life, you’re probably not prepared to be dumped into a national health insurance system that has thousands of drug plan options.

In this timely episode, recorded during the coronavirus pandemic of 2020, we’re talking about the psychology behind how we think about money, the mistakes we make, and why we’re so prone to irrational behavior in both good times and bad. It’s hard not to get emotional when it comes to money. The stock market took a sharp negative turn recently and the short-term future of the economy is uncertain to say the least. Many Americans are either out of work or find themselves having to pivot to earn money. It would be 100% normal to be panicking now, however, it doesn’t have to be that way....

In this episode, we’re talking about estate planning. As in wills, trusts and powers of attorney. I know, it’s not sexy, but it is important.

The Retirement Years on Profit Boss® Radio

In this episode, we’re talking about how to use scholarships to pay for college. We’ve all heard the horror stories of those who graduate with hundreds of thousands of dollars in student debt. Many of my clients are faced with the very real tradeoff between making sure their kids graduate with no (or minimal) debt and funding their own retirement.

Welcome to episode 146 of Profit Boss® Radio! Identity protection is so crucial in this day and age that I felt we needed two episodes to cover all the information. If you have been following the news, you have definitely heard countless stories of people falling prey to identity theft. 

According to Javelin Research, identity theft is on the rise and the most recent study shows the odds of you becoming a victim is now 1 in 3! With the increased usage of social media and online consumerism, people are sharing more information and, subsequently, becoming more vulnerable. Monitoring your identity is becoming a part of life, and there are methods you can use to make it a little bit easier to manage. 

This episode contains many pertinent tips and tactics that you can apply today to help safeguard your financial life. Tune in to this week’s episode as we continue our discussion about how to protect your identity.
