    Setting and achieving goals

    Setting and achieving goals

    People tend to deny the importance of setting goals the closer they get to retirement.
    They argue it’s something for the younger generations, that they’re too busy.
    This couldn’t be further from the truth. But it’s understandable if you consider that ambitious goals rarely come to fruition.
    But there is a reason why some people seem to excel while others get stuck. They’ve mastered the skill of setting and achieving goals.
    In this episode, you will uncover a simple action plan to start setting—and achieving— the right goals, so you can make sure you live a life by design and not by default.
    Listen now.

    CPA recruiter pivots into leading others with Mark Goldman

    Most things in life turn out differently than we expect them to.

    It is in those situations where we have a choice.

    Or to use it as a stepping stone for a mission you look forward to every day, retirement being the conclusion of your accomplishments.
    In this episode, Mark Goldman shares how to change your career path without prior experience, how to start a business without neglecting your  family, and how to ensure you retire the exact way you aim to.

    The transition into retirement with Michelle Jacobson

    The transition into retirement with Michelle Jacobson

    Losing your steady salary is amongst the main reasons we don’t retire as soon as we’d like to.
    So we go through with our work until the Medicare coverage starts at 65, sacrificing our health in order to have financial stability in retirement.
    But this attitude towards retirement is a form of self-sabotage.
    Why? 
    Because the transition into retirement does not have to be a zero-sum game where we choose the lesser of two evils.
    Rather, it’s a time to evaluate the risks of what we want to achieve as soon as we retire.
    In this episode, former media seller Michelle Jacobson shares how to deal with financial strains in your transition into retirement, the key to engaging commercials, and meaningful community work in San Antonio.
    Listen now.
    Show highlights include:
    Why most ads are tedious and annoying (and how the best marketers create engaging commercials) (4:33) How waiting for Medicare can cost you your health (even if retiring before 65 burns a hole in your finances) (13:52) How to make the most of your travel experience (without having to leave the US) (16:01) The best nonprofit organizations to end the widespread family poverty in San Antonio (17:52) Disclosure:

    Tuning up your business with Rich Allen

    A small family business fills its owner with pride, and motivates them to leave a legacy for their family.

    Christian donor-advised funds with Ryan Assunto

    Christian donor-advised funds with Ryan Assunto

    If you’re looking for options to donate to charity, you may have heard of donor-advised funds.
    Not only can donating to charity serve the purpose of biblical generosity, but they also have the pleasant side effect of tax deductions.
    But donor-advised funds lure us with higher tax deductions and less paperwork.
    Unfortunately, most of those funds’ secular sponsors tend to oppose conservative and Christian charities, which massively erodes the trust in them.
    The solution can be a Christian donor-advised fund with a sponsor who actively proclaims and stands for those values. 
    In this episode, Ryan Assunto, the President of the National Christian Foundation in Austin, shares  how to advance our charitable causes in alignment with our values in an efficient and impactful way.
    Listen now.
    Show highlights include:
    Why charity-inclined business owners outmaneuver the clutches of the IRS (0:59) How to take an immediate tax deduction (without having to decide what charity to support on the spot) (7:37) The fatal mistake almost all donors make when they choose a sponsor who locks away their property (11:21) How to avoid capital gains on your assets with the help of donor-advised funds (14:31) Disclosure:

    What's next for this former district attorney? with Nico LaHood

    What's next for this former district attorney? with Nico LaHood

    Many people don’t consider that the Bible doesn’t define retirement.
    Does this mean we should be working forever? Should we sacrifice time with our loved ones for work?
    Certainly not. 
    The common definition of retirement is leaving your job and ceasing to work. 
    But the fact that the term does not exist in the Bible suggests that work is omnipresent in our lives. 
    And if we look at what we wish our retirement to be like, the work doesn’t end.
    It changes its form.
    In this episode, my friend and former District Attorney Nico LaHood shares how our faith in God helps us find a purpose that fulfills our lives and lasts until after we retire.
    Listen now.
    Show highlights include:
    How to overcome the fear of being stigmatized and slandered in public for speaking the truth (1:05) How one profound conversation with God sets you up to build a legacy for your family (5:57) How a discussion group saves you from despairing over contradictions and misinformation in the media (10:19) The only rule to follow for retiring without any regrets (and why even our biggest professional successes leave us empty inside) (15:00) The simple affirmation you can use whenever you feel trapped between your profession and your personal life (18:34) How our faith unlocks supreme discipline, so we stay young while we’re getting older (21:01)  Disclosure:
