    Tyson Ray on How to Fund Your Contentment

    When people enter the retirement phase of their lives my guest Tyson Ray describes what's left for them in three parts: the Go-Go Years, the Slow-Go Years, and the No-Go years. His mission is to help people have enough money to fund all three with plenty left over. In today's episode, we have a lively conversation about money, investing, and how to work with a financial advisor so you get the most of what you have to invest. Enjoy!

    Mike&Bo on Defining Financial Freedom for Yourself -- and Then Going after It!

    Mike&Bo on Defining Financial Freedom for Yourself -- and Then Going after It!

    This is a really fun episode. It's rare that I get to talk to two amazing guests at the same time. "Mike&Bo" aka Mike Merrigan and Bo Kort are best friends and they also have built a successful real estate investment portfolio together that funds their freedom. Over the past 30 years, Mike and Bo have acquired hundreds of properties and built over 43 companies. Now, they want to teach others how two small-town guys from Arizona did it—and how you can too. Are you fed up with the typical financial freedom "gurus"? Mike & Bo are the breath of fresh air you've been so desperately needing.
    These guys are the real deal! Connect with Mike & Bo here: https://mikeandbo.biz/

    Look How Far You've Come

    When was the last time you took a few minutes and acknowledged how far you've come in your life? In today's episode, I'm flying solo, talking about how powerful it is to look back and identify just how much you've actually achieved (even when sometimes it doesn't feel like it).
