What Is Your Financial Foundation? - Episode 564 show art What Is Your Financial Foundation? - Episode 564

The Prosperity Podcast

This episode focuses on the concept of carefully investing in one's financial foundation by creating an emergency and opportunity fund, ideally stored in the life insurance industry for life-long accessibility. This fund should be liquid, tax-free, earning a competitive rate, and able to fund any opportunities that come one's choices, and its size should vary based on the kind of deals one seeks. It ensures one doesn't run into financial difficulties like the person mentioned who had sold a business and then invested unfittingly.

Kim and Spencer, in this The Prosperity Podcast episode, featured a discussion about whole life insurance as a financial asset and tool for emergencies and opportunities. It started with a historical look at the inception of whole life insurance by "bands of brothers" and church brethren centuries ago, aiming to address the financial losses of term insurance. As opposed to term insurance, whole life insurance was created to build an asset called cash value, which policyholders could borrow against. This role of life insurance in financial planning has expanded over time, with books like Nelson Nash's "Becoming Your Own Banker" and Kim's "Live Your Life Insurance" reiterating its use as a strategy to tackle life events. Kim debunked the misleading term "bank" often used to describe mutual life insurance companies and pointed out that life insurance allows control, liquidity, usability, and equity (CLUE). She also highlighted the need for financial control in current times where bank accounts could be frozen, suggesting using life insurance as a reliable and secure financial tool. The hosts concluded the episode with a note to delve deeper into the intricacies of becoming one's own banker in future episodes.
