    WFN #006 – TRULY Self-Directing Your Retirement with Amanda Holbrook and Specialized Trust

    WFN #006 – TRULY Self-Directing Your Retirement with Amanda Holbrook and Specialized Trust

    Today my guest is Amanda Holbrook with Specialized Trust.  She has been a key account manager and has lived in the self-directed space for over 13 years.  
    Not only has she connected with investors all over the country, but she also practices what she preaches by investing herself and has her kids investing in self-directed Roth IRAs.  Or as Amanda describes those accounts…”TAX-FREE FOREVER!!”
    I myself opened up my Solo-401k with Specialized back in 2018 and since then I have invested in first position notes on real estate, private lending, note funds, trust deeds, a private company looking to go public in 2022 and even a TEAK farm in Nicaragua!
    Not sure if you should open an IRA or a Solo-K?  Listen in for some of the pros and cons of both!

    WFN #005 – Golden Nuggets on Gold with Amerigold founder Dana Samuelson

    WFN #005 – Golden Nuggets on Gold with Amerigold founder Dana Samuelson

    Today my guest is Dana Samuelson, founder of American Gold Exchange and has been involved in the precious metals industry for DECADES!  I met Dana personally at the Real Estate Guys 2021 Summit On Sand and felt he would be a great addition to the podcast!
    Gold: it is the oldest form of money in human history.  You can find gold coins that were minted in 500 BC and earlier!
    But is it an “old relic” or just a “shiny rock” as some say?  Dana and I will discuss
    A few of the highlights from our conversation
    US money used to be BACKED by gold, but it has not been for over 50 years
    From the Presidency of FDR to Gerald Ford, it was ILLEGAL for Americans to own gold!
    Gold is twenty times scarcer than silver
    Money and currency are NOT the same things!
    Gold and silver have no counterparty risk
    What is the gold to silver ratio is and how it can help you determine your best allocation in precious metals

    WFN #003 – Barry Brooksby with Focus Wealth Group

    WFN #003 – Barry Brooksby with Focus Wealth Group

    What is Whole Life Insurance and IS it really a scam like Dave Ramsey and others say it is?
    Our guest today is my friend and insurance agent Barry Brooksby.  
    Barry Brooksby has been involved in the financial and investment industry since 2001 and helped build a multi-million dollar real estate empire. He has an extensive background in real estate investing and financial services and is an Infinite Banking Practitioner working with clients nationwide.
     
    He is the Founder and CEO of Focus Wealth Group, specializing in wealth & protection strategies, and tax-free money planning.
     
    He’s a co-author of the book, Tax-Free Money for Long-Term Care!, and author of Infinite Banking: The Powerful Tax-Free Strategy that Allows You to Capitalize on the Velocity of Money.
     
    Barry speaks on topics such as real estate investing, tax-free retirement, guaranteed income planning, Infinite Banking, and high cash value whole life insurance.


    We will do a deep dive into the numbers with a whole life insurance policy and why large corporations like Chase and AT&T and wealthy individuals use these vehicles to save, grow and protect their wealth in a tax-free environment.
    Inflation, tax and even a small 1% fee can erode much of your retirement account, even with a 6-12% “average (link - https://youtu.be/X0SHoqpdjFQ) ” rate of return.  
    Find out why WLI may make sense for you!

New and Promising!

John is on the right track with his new podcast and guests like Dana Samuelson of American Gold Exchange! Learning about the gold:silver ratio, where to store gold, and how to use it as collateral for borrowing is exactly what serious investors need to know. Keep up the good work, looking forward to more.
