    Who’s Got Your Financial Back?

    Who’s Got Your Financial Back?

    Who's got your back? That is one of the most important questions you must answer when it comes to navigating the terrain of personal finance. 

    "Fiduciary" is a word getting a lot of play as of late in the financial industry.. In the financial advisory world, this means someone who is legally obligated to put their clients’ interest before our own. Despite the depth of the word, there are varying degrees of "fiduciaries"....so you really have to watch your back when it comes to your money and wealth.   

    On this episode of the "Sharing the Illumination Wealth Podcast" (link in bio), we address: 

    1. What a real fiduciary looks acts like 

    2. How to spot non-fiduciary advice 

    3. We share a recent story of a friend and the costly "advice" they got and 

    4. Questions you can ask your advisors to determine if they are a real Fiduciary or not.   

    Finding an advisor who not only puts you first, but always has your back is one of the most important decisions you can make.

    On today’s episode, we discuss several tools that entrepreneurs can implement in their personal finances to give them complete clarity on what to do with their wealth and money without having to predict the future. The benefits of LASIK like vision with your wealth can reduce worry & overwhelm, eliminate procrastination and analysis paralysis, help you execute no matter what the markets are doing at any given time.

    5 Lessons From A Mentor on Financial Independence

    "If you are not financially independent by the time you are forty or fifty, it doesn’t mean that you are living in the wrong country or at the wrong time. It simply means that you have the wrong plan."  - Jim Rohn.

    Many people have an internal struggle with money so if you can get money out the way, you can move on to many more meaningful dimensions of your life --- thus making Financial Independence a very important objective. On this episode, we share 5 timeless lessons that we have learned from one of our mentor's on Financial Independence.

    One of the biggest financial decisions people make haphazardly is the car buying or lease decision. Transportation expenses are the second largest expense in the average American's budget - secondly only to housing costs and represent 16% of all spending.

    1. Actually getting a good deal on a car within our budget 

    2. Finding a car that fit our lifestyle needs and values and 


    3. Minimizing the painful and time consuming car dealership haggling and paperwork process.
