Profit Boss® Radio - THE Podcast for Women and Money

In this episode, we’re talking about investing in what is probably the freakiest time period we’ve ever lived through. The markets are just as wild as life right now, and you need to be educated and have a solid investment philosophy you will abide by to avoid getting off-track. The market has been massively positive for owners of US large stocks. The market has not only recovered the 35% lost in March, but gained another 10 to 15%, and has become massively volatile. It’s easy to get emotional, to be ruled by hindsight bias, and to overthink bad decisions. So, are you ready to create a...

Profit Boss® Radio - THE Podcast for Women and Money

In this episode, we’re talking about overcoming inner barriers. If you “get in our own way” or self-sabotage, it’s not always on you. For centuries, women have been put into positions that force us to play it small and fail to get in touch with our true desires. When it comes to money, having our own income or a life of financial independence was out of the question until just decades ago. We’ve made huge strides, but we still have so much to work through. Today, I’m joined by Dr. Valerie Rein. Valerie has worked with hundreds of high-achieving women and discovered that the issues...

Profit Boss® Radio - THE Podcast for Women and Money

In this episode, we’re exploring the unexpected ways that aging affects our happiness. If you do a Google search for the word “midlife,” you’ll instantly be greeted by the autofilled word “crisis.” It’s a time when almost everyone asks themselves, “Is this all there is?” and finds themselves facing new challenges, both internally and externally. However, as you’ll hear from my guest today, midlife is also an extraordinary time. It’s a time of lasting friendships, of greater confidence, and of having the wisdom to do remarkable things.

In this episode, we’re talking about retirement, insurance, and what you can do right now to prepare for the costs of healthcare as you get older. Healthcare in retirement can be very confusing. 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. Many people are scared of Medicare, or have heard horror stories about not being able to get the care that they need. However, it’s important to know that when combined with the right...

Profit Boss® Radio - THE Podcast for Women and Money

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.

Estate planning isn’t just something for people with a lot of money. It’s about making things as easy as possible for your loved ones when you’re gone, and whether you’ve got $10 or $10 million in assets, that matters. If you’re thinking that having a will takes care of this, you may be surprised to learn that a will doesn’t do that much - and can create serious legal and financial headaches for your beneficiaries.

Furthermore, if you have children, I cannot stress this enough: please get an estate plan in place along with appropriate life insurance. If you get in trouble and really need life insurance or estate planning documents in place, it’s often (unfortunately) too late, and whether you’re new parents or retirees making plans for your golden years, it’s highly likely that you need more than just a will to protect your family and your assets. If you’re wondering what to do next, today’s episode of Profit Boss® Radio is for you.

I’m joined by wills, trusts, and estates attorney Laura Cowan. Based in New York City, Laura was named a 2019 Rising Star by Super Lawyers, an award only given to the top 2.5% of attorneys in the Greater New York area, she’s spoken at the UN Headquarters about estate planning for non-citizens, and she has been featured in Forbes Magazine. Most importantly, Laura is an attorney who can actually speak to people about this complex topic without overwhelming them!

So, are you ready to truly understand the difference between wills and trusts, learn how to best protect your life’s work and your loved ones, and find out how to build an estate plan to best suit your needs? Then you don’t want to miss this episode. Tune in to Profit Boss® Radio today!

Here’s what you’ll find out in this week’s episode of Profit Boss® Radio:

  • Why having a will and not a trust guarantees that your beneficiaries will end up in probate court - and why this process often costs up to 5% of your estate and takes years to complete.
  • Which of your assets cannot be passed down in a will - and how naming minors as primary beneficiaries to assets like life insurance and 401(k)s can leave your money in a stranger’s hands until your children turn 18.
  • Why most people choose to create a living trust instead of a will - and the components that go into an estate planning package.
  • The dangers of letting minors collect their whole inheritance at 18 - and what happens if you don’t name a successor guardian for your minor children.
  • How asset protection trusts differ from living trusts - and how to best protect your assets from creditors.
  • How a trust can protect your assets in the event that your spouse dies and you remarry.
  • Why you shouldn’t create your own estate plan online - and why you should choose to work with a flat-fee estate planning attorney over one who charges by the hour.
