    Empower Your Retirement

    Empower Your Retirement

    Today we are discussing Empowering your Retirement. But before we get into that, let's talk, for a moment, about the position of our economy during the time of this recording, early June of 2020, specifically in regards to jobs. We are starting to see flattened curves from the COVID-19 pandemic and partial reopening's of parts of our economy in the US. There's even some good news jobs as according the Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 2.5 million new jobs in May. However, the unemployment rate is still at 14.7%. Some sources, such as an article in Forbes on June 8th say there was an error in the calculations for the unemployment rate and therefore the true rate is closer to 20%. Regardless, there's been over roughly 42 million how have lost their jobs to date, and counting. There's also talk that many people whose jobs were retained because of the forgivable loans for small businesses, will be let go once those businesses are out of the specified period they are required to keep their employees.
    What does this all mean to you, our Rebels? Well, many of you may find yourself, or someone you know, as one of the unfortunate unemployed, or fortunate, depending on your point of view, or those facing a forced, early retirement because of the pandemic. You may have left or will be leaving completely unprepared with this sudden and life altering situation and shrugging your shoulders asking, "now what?" While we can't answer that question for you, we discuss tactics today to help you better understand your financial position, what steps to take next and a some advice to help you through this difficult time.

    [00:55] Kevin: Today we’re joined by guest Yasmin Vorajee. Today we’re going to talk about making your money work for you, not someone else. Yasmin is an entrepreneur and an expert in making your money work for yourself
    [02:40] Would you mind sharing a little bit with our listeners where you came from and what inspired you to do what you do today?
    [02:50] Yasmin: I’m the creator of Tiny Time, Big Results, which is all about how to have a profitable 20 hour week business
    [04:25] If I only have a few hours a day, how can I make the most of the time that I have so that I can still have a profitable business so that I can still be with my kids and still feel like I have balance?
    [05:05] Kevin: It’s not just work all day, everyday. Then you’re missing out on a lot of things. To me, I think wealth is important to bring a quality of life
    [05:15] Yasmin: Wealth for me is not just about the amount of money that you make or the amount of money that you have. It’s about the time you’re spending with your loved ones, the time you get to have some fun. You can enjoy what you’re doing
    [05:40] What is it that I’m here to do? How can I add more value to this world and do what I love and get well paid for it?
    [05:50] Kevin: Building wealth is creating assets. If you can build an asset that, when the world turns upside down, you are avoiding that loss since you still have income and that puts you in a better position
    [07:05] Yasmin: I think being self employed was considered to be the really risky option that you were being super brave if you created your own business. But over the years I’ve really come to realize that actually being employed is incredibly risky. You’re a number in that system. And when they don’t need you anymore, you’re gone. When you have a business and you create streams of income in that business, if one starts to slow down, you can make the other ones be a little more fruitful for you. Whereas if you lose your job, you have one stream of income and that’s gone
    [08:43] I think for a lot of people they’re probably thinking the time is going to be an issue and that they don’t have the time
    [11:15] The way that I look at leverage is if I have an asset, how can I create a greater return from that? My book is a leveraged product because I’ve poured all my knowledge and expertise into a book that now sells for me. I’ve created it once, now it sells over and over again for me
    [12:45] When you’re selling your time, you always have a cap on how much you can sell
    [13:33] A common complaint that I get from a lot of business owners is “I’m so busy I don’t have time to do marketing.” But when that pipeline dries up, there’s no new leads coming through
    [14:08] We all have knowledge and expertise that other people will value, and it’s about tapping into that
    [14:52] I think the biggest mistake that people make is assuming that everyone knows what we know (com

    Notes
    [00:55] Kevin: Today, we’re joined by guest Danielle Cuomo. Today we're going to be talking about increasing productivity, hire virtually. Danielle is an expert in that field, an entrepreneur, and owner of Virtual Assist USA
    [01:33] These days it is more prominent to hire virtually for businesses. If you're an entrepreneur, you will be able to hire out virtually to help you with tasks (smaller or part-time or full-time)
    [02:14] Would you mind sharing a little bit with our listeners about where you came from and what inspired you to do what you do today?
    [02:23] Danielle: One thing that I think that is really timely with what we're facing now with the Covid-19 virus is that I started this business in 2008 and it was a
    [03:25] I really wanted to center my business around the idea that services can be really nimble, they can be flexible, they can be on-demand, and it would be an alternative to hiring employees
    [03:52] I was working in IT consulting at the time and because it was the start of the recession I had just been laid off, so that was disheartening. So it was important for me to turn that into a positive and I felt like I had nothing to lose
    [04:22] Now with the technology, there’s such a low barrier to entry and it’s possible for anyone (a really easy way to start a business and a really great time to do so)
    [05:45] I think people are seeing how do-able and easy it is to work remotely, that technology makes it possible to still build business relationships
    [07:10] We’ve always been 100% remote so for the past 12 years we’ve operated virtually. When something like this happens, we don’t have to pivot or scramble, we can do business as usual
    [07:25] Our clients really benefited from that because they didn’t have any interruptions in their service (in any uncertain time I think that’s really important)
    [08:05] Another benefit has really been that there’s also a really broad range of skillsets to choose from. When you’re working with someone locally in your office, you’re only able to choose from the skillsets that are available to you in your specific geographical area. But when you’re working virtually with a virtual assistant company, we can pool from a nation-wide pool of talent which can get you people who have stronger skillsets
    [09:22] Kevin: Have you sen this whole idea of being able to hire virtually open doors for entrepreneurs?
    [09:28] Danielle: I definitely have because they have all the tools accessible and available to them. I typically will say that everyone should be working in things that are in their genius zone and if as an entrepreneur you’re really good at making widgets for example, it doesn’t mean that you can’t do things like digital marketing and bookkeeping and social media, but that maybe you shouldn’t be doing those things
    [10:15] I always advise entrepreneurs to focus on what they’re really good at (their core offering) and leaving the rest

    [01:45] Would you mind sharing with our WTR listeners about where you came from and what inspired you to do what you do today?

    What To Do With Your Cash During A Financial Crisis

    What To Do With Your Cash During A Financial Crisis

    Right now people have a high amount of money is sitting in cash in the US. In fact, according to a report from the Bureau of Economic Analysis released April 30th, 2020, in March personal savings as a percentage of disposable income was 13.1%, the highest rate since November of 1981 A sign people are uneasy about the volatility in the economy right now and no one knows how this will all play out. The good part of having moved your money to cash is you won't lose any. The bad part is now your money is no longer working for you. Rebels, you're probably asking yourselves, "what can I do to start making your money work for you again." Well we have 3 tactics to help you answer this question. First we'll discuss opportunities right now, then how you can start making your money value increase, third will be tax considerations.
    NOTES:
    [00:54] Kevin: Today we're joined by our other co-host Brian Dumont. We're going to have an important discussion about what's going on in the world right now because there's a lot of turmoil out there. Today we're talking about what to do with your cash during a financial crisis
    [02:10] First we're going to talk about the opportunities right now, then how you can start making your money value increase, and then we're going to talk about tax considerations
    [02:38] What kind of opportunities are there?
    [02:44] Brian: I have always believed that in fact there are always opportunities and that when change occurs, we have to look for those opportunities. Even though you may have given up much of your earnings over the last full market, if you are one of those people that have a portfolio that has suffered, what that means is that this is a time where you can actually harvest some of those losses and use this as an opportunity to transition to a different position
    [03:52] For example, you could move from a taxable position to a tax free position. You could move from a high risk position to a lower risk position
    [04:06] When you move after you have taken losses, there's no tax penalties for moving (a great opportunity to move in the direction of safety)
    [05:00] Kevin: That's the problem right now. There's so many "could's" (this could happen) which creates this uneasiness which is why so many people are sitting in cash. So it's great to take advantage of opportunities, but what about the people who are thinking about that safety? They want to do something a little more safe but their money is below inflation. What can our rebels do to start earning money on their cash being safe and the value increasing again?
    [05:42] Brian: During the last recession in 2008, a lot of people did eventually move to cash usually too late, and then they sat in cash for too long (they missed the upswing back). As a WTR, we don't want to be normal. We want to go where the opportunities are and move in our own direction
    [06:20] That means in this time, you don't have to let your money sit around waiting until you're comfortable to move back into equities to make money or looking for some other investment. You can start making money right away
    [07:15] Suppose you have $100,000 sitting in cash right now because you don't know what to do. If you could get 5% tax free on that, over the course of 12 months that's $5,000. Over the next 3 years, that's over $15,000, which is something
    [08:28] Strategic opportunistic approach to making your money work for you starting immediately (a good position to be in)
    [09:22] Kevin: Along with the opportunity and getting your money to start increasing in value again, another thing I wanted to mention is taxes. So, why is taxes such an important part of this? People don't always consider the big picture of this, but if you're going to be a rebel and you're not going to listen to what everyone else is doing, why is it important?
    [09:42] Brian: Well let me give you a quick example with some numbers to st
