    Gettin' to Know Tim Yurek and Olivia Kirk | Owners of Tier 1 Capital in Pittston, PA

    “It’s not how much money you make. It’s how much money you keep that really matters.” That’s the message of today’s guests, Tier 1 Capital. The Father-Daughter team of Tim Yurek and Olivia Kirk sat down with us and talked about how sometimes it’s not always in your best interest to follow the “conventional wisdom” mentality when it comes to taking control of your money. Hear all about how a meeting with financial guru, R. Nelson Nash, set Tim on the path to changing the lives of so many people using the “Infinite Banking Concept.” We also got to learn what it was that brought Olivia into the mix to form this Financial Dream Team that helps people achieve their goals of “Cash Fluency”!

    Who remembers the Agnes Flood of 1972? If you grew up here in NEPA, you definitely do – or at the very least you've heard about it from those that do remember it. Well, it's been 50 years since that tragic event took place, and in this episode, we had the honor of talking all about the floods of NEPA with a local producer, director, and documentarian, Alexander Monelli. He recently completed a 50th Anniversary follow-up documentary called, Agnes 50, which will be premiering on June 23, 2022, on WVIA. During this interview, Al shared with us some snippets of his experiences while filming and interviewing people throughout all parts of the 570, including a funny story from one of his visits with a gentleman living in Selinsgrove.
