    032 Family, Biz, Money & Charity with Alison J Prince

    032 Family, Biz, Money & Charity with Alison J Prince

    It’s such a blessing to welcome to the show not only a great mom, loving wife, podcast host, business coach and outstanding entrepreneur, but also a dear soul, Alison Prince. She went from high school teacher eligible for government assistance to a multi-million dollar entrepreneur in a couple of years. Throughout her entrepreneurial journey, she and her family donated over a million dollars to charity and helped more than 8,000 families through Hope International's microfinancing programs. 
    In this episode, Alison shares her unique and fascinating story of how she discovered that the "go to college, get a degree, and you'll have financial security" story wasn't her best choice. We go through her first steps selling products online, the unexpected but inspiring growth of her business, the money conversations within her household, her children's education around money, and much more. 
    What You Will Learn In This Episode:
    - Who Alison Prince is and how she helps people realize their entrepreneurial dreams
    - The critical element that helped Alison succeed in e-commerce from day one
    - The roles of Alison's family in the success of her business
    - How Alison's daughters built a six-figure business before they even stepped foot into high school 
    Conversations about money are common in Alison's household, and not only about money but also about the idea that every one of them is contributing to the main cause. She and her husband instill in their children that finances don't necessarily have to control every decision in their lives - they teach them about the value of things and time. Alison believes that her job is to figure out how to make money, so it can be used to help others and alleviate the burden of those in need.

    031 Adversity and Abundance with Amberly Lago

    031 Adversity and Abundance with Amberly Lago

    I hope you are ready for today's episode, because it is going to touch your soul. Joining me is Amberly Lago, a best-selling author, TEDx and keynote speaker, podcast host, and peak performance coach.
    11 years ago, Amberly was a celebrity fitness trainer sponsored by Nike, living a great life when one day, coming back home on her motorcycle, a SUV truck hit her, flipping her life upside down. Amberly had 1% chance of saving her leg from amputation. After 34 surgeries and a medical bill of almost $3 million, she discovered that all that was just the first part of her journey. 
    In this episode, Amberly shares her incredible story of resilience, badassery, courage and love for life. We go through her extensive recovery journey, the different stages she went through, and the financial lessons she learned after the accident, finding herself and her husband forced to deal with a medical bill of almost $3 million. 
    What You Will Learn In This Episode:
    - How Amberlyćs life was before and after the accident
    - How focusing on the 1% and the things she CAN do helped Amberly navigate her recovery in a better position
    - One of the biggest financial lessons the accident taught Amberly and her husband
    - Why having money conversations with our partners is so important, and how they can save us tons of money and headaches
    Although dealing with more than 30 surgeries was hard, the most challenging part for Amberly started when she got home in a wheelchair and asked herself - what do I do now? She was the family's main breadwinner, her personal brand the business, and her body the tool. It took all her courage and resilience, but things started to get on track when she channeled all her energies on the things she could do and ignored all the rest.

    030 How to Protect My Assets

    030 How to Protect My Assets

    Today, I will answer a question I get asked a lot - what kind of entity is the best for my company? Considering laws can be very different depending on where you are based, and each personal situation is different. We will go through the various structures you can pick for your business and your assets. We will look at each structure's pros and cons, tax structures, and everything you must know to protect your business, family and legacy. 
    What You Will Learn In This Episode:
    - How picking the correct entity for our company can protect us from expensive lawsuits
    - Why it is essential to legally separate ourselves and our assets from our company and its assets
    - The pros and cons of Sole Proprietorship
    - The differences between a C-corp and an S-corp
    - What Limited Liability Companies (LLC) are and the difference in taxes between them and C- or S-Corps
    - How we can reduce the self-employment tax
    When choosing an entity for our company, we provide it with a skeleton, a structure to protect our assets and the business assets. We use the same logic we use with accounts to register our company, separating personal from business. It also gives the company a legal form, and most importantly, a tax structure that will help us avoid unpleasant surprises with the IRS.

    029 The Best Investment Accounts to Get

    029 The Best Investment Accounts to Get

    I’m excited about today’s episode, because we will go through the next step after establishing our Wealth Priority Ladder™. In this show, I will take you through the six types of accounts you can choose to have on your wealth path, and I will also share a four-step system to start funding those accounts. We will look closely at each of the six accounts, pros and cons of each, and how to use them in the smartest way.  
    What You Will Learn In This Episode:
    - What is the account jumble, and which three criteria we must use to choose what kind of account we'll get
    - Why we must keep our business from our personal accounts separated
    - My three rules with high-yield cash accounts
    - The benefits of having 401k and HSA accounts
    One of the first steps on our journey to an affluent life is to separate accounts. Every dollar that comes in must know its purpose, and as soon as we get it we must put it to work for us. This task distribution becomes much easier when we have multiple accounts, each one of them taking care of different aspects of our lives and our business.

    028 10 Money Lessons for Parents

    028 10 Money Lessons for Parents

    Last August 2nd, Emily Ray, my first granddaughter, promoted me to the happiest man on earth. That got me thinking about the future, and coincidently, a soon-to-be mom I've met on a mastermind asked me what advice would I give, if any, to future parents. So I've decided to make this episode about the 10 lessons I would give to new parents about finances, and the best way of taking care of their children. In addition, I will share my latest framework, The Emily Factor ™. 
    What You Will Learn In This Episode:
    - Why we must focus on raising empowered little ones with financial tools to develop a richer lifestyle
    - The most critical investment we can make in our children
    - Why transferring skillsets is widely more important than transferring assets
    - The importance of a piece of mind fund, life insurance, and disability insurance
    - Why we must learn to have tough conversations
    - What is The Emily Factor ™, how it works, and how can we put it into practice
    Understanding that our kids and grandkids came to this world to fulfill their dreams and not ours is perhaps one of the most challenging, yet most beneficial lessons we can ever learn. As long as they are not harming themselves or anyone else, our job as parents and grandparents is to support them and give them the tools and the help they need to accomplish their goals.

    027 10 Lessons from 6 Decades

    027 10 Lessons from 6 Decades

    On September 2, I turned sixty. I added a new decade to my story, which got me thinking, what are the lessons I've learned in the last six decades? Today I want to share with you the 10 lessons I've learned on my journey of living a fulfilling life and as an affluent entrepreneur. We will also talk about the concept of living in a state of disappointment, and we will go through the three principles of living a meaningful life. 
    What You Will Learn In This Episode:
    - The difference between being wealthy and living a rich life
    - The three principles we must have in place as rule #1 for building an affluent life
    - What is the role of our values in the decisions we make every day, and how that affects our future
    - Why we must be open about what we do, and why we need to find a purpose in every action we take
    - What is the role of our habits in the things we create
    When I look back at my journey, I realize it is not about the challenges I had but about the lessons I got from them. One of the biggest lessons I've learned is that richness comes from the way we use our time, not our dollars. I'd rather measure my wealth in time than in money for a simple reason - money is an unlimited resource while time is finite.
