You Have Money… Now Can You Keep It?

What do Wayne Newton, Mark Twain, and MC Hammer all have in common? They all declared bankruptcy after amassing a great fortune through their trades and talents. Their cautionary tales seem to prove one commonly held belief to be true:

Making money is not the hardest part—the hardest part is holding on to it.

Cautionary Tales from the World of the NFL

Share Button

Now that football season is in full swing, it seems fitting to share a cautionary tale from the world of the NFL, and more specifically ofunnamed (6) the late, great Joe Robbie, the first owner of the Miami Dolphins. Following his death in 1990, here is how aBusinessweek article began:

“In November, 1989, two months before his death, Joe Robbie, owner of the Miami Dolphins, moved to keep the National Football League team in the Robbie family ‘for at least the next generation.’ He established a trust whose primary asset was two partnerships that together owned an 88% stake in the Dolphins. When Robbie died on Jan. 7, 1990, at the age of 73, his family’s control of the club seemed secure.

“But now, the family is locked in a feud that pits three of Robbie’s nine children against six siblings and their mother, Elizabeth. The dispute could force the sale of a sizable share of the Dolphins, one of the most valuable franchises in sports.”

What happened? Joe Robbie was a litigating attorney as well as a business owner. You’d think with all that legal and business experience, he would have been able to structure his estate in a way that benefited and blessed his family rather than left them in a bitter feud. Mr. Robbie, it seemed, had made a fatal error: He didn’t ask the right questions. And the consequence was that “the structure of the trust and rest of the estate made conflict all but inevitable.”

Now think about your life. When you started out, you knew where you wanted to go. You had a plan and you lived that plan successfully. You still need a plan—but now it’s a different kind. You need a plan for your life and wealth. Now it’s your task find the right people who can help guide you toward that purpose and get you asking the RIGHT questions. So, what’s your next move?

What Does Your Planning Sound Like?

Share Button

Few of us can forget that scene (and that voice) from the iconic 1980s movie, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, when actor Ben Stein gives the world’s most boring economics class lecture and follows each point with his monotone, “Anyone? Anyone?”unnamed (3)

To me, it seems like most of today’s estate planning is as exciting as that sleep-inducing economics lecture. Why does estate planning seem so dry and impersonal? Does it have to be like that?

Educate Your Heirs

Share Button

Because building this matters more than the money 

If you were to ask a class of Kindergarteners what their parents do for a living, the answers can be amusing.  You’ll hear everything from, “My daddy talks on the phone” to “Mommy wears tall shoes and comes home with a headache.” It’s understandable; they’re five.

The funny thing is, I’ve heard adult heirs say the same things, but in a different way.  They’ll say, “My parents worked hard and made a lot of money,” and that seems the extent of their knowledge. It’s as if many heirs have no awareness of what their parents did or what made them successful.  They don’t know the motivation and reasons behind the hours, days, and years of hard work.

Part of your “wealth responsibility” is to set straight the thinking of your heirs on the major stories behind your wealth.  Inspiring heirs involves telling (and even retelling) your story and allowing them to engage with you.  I call this concept story building.

Story Building: If I help my heirs understand me, they can better understand themselves.

Don’t expect or assume they will do exactly what you’re doing. But they will understand your intentions – your heart – because they have become part of your story.  The purpose is not to impress them or prove how successful or wonderful you are.  The purpose and outcome are to give them a stronger context for their lives and to honor the legacy of the family.

A complete inheritance-preparation strategy is guided by how you want to inspire your heirs.

START TODAY to build that story by telling your story – verbally, in writing and with pictures.

Wealth is more than money. Don’t just plan for your future, live it right now.

To steward and decide what’s best for you, your family and your future… and remove what potentially stands in the way.

Jim and Marge attended one of our retirement briefings and they took advantage of our free 57-Minute Retirement and Lifestyle Freedom Conversation.  They were in the office this week to talk about their more confident retirement future and mentioned,

“The advisors we’ve had for years just keep telling us we’re ‘all set’ but it made us feel uneasy because we haven’t felt ‘all set’… and if we really were ‘all set’ as they kept trying to convince us, they would have proven to us – which they never did.”

They are all set now and we’ve not only proven it to them they’ve proven it for themselves.

Find Friendlier Waters

The health event arrived and he wasn’t prepared… not financially anyways.

He had achieved much success and accumulated wealth but never invested the appropriate time and energy into protecting and preserving it.

Now it was scramble time – to get everything financial in place as it should be at a time when energy is better spent on what matters most – family, friends, making a difference.

Jerry had no choice at this point and worse yet he felt like he was swimming with sharks – advisors and product sales people who knew he was desperate and claimed to have the magic solutions to solve everything financial, but it seemed to be in their best interest and not Jerry’s.

And at this point Jerry didn’t have the time to truly understand his opportunities and dangers and knew he now had fewer options because he had waited and the time was ticking down.

Now Jerry was wondering what could have been possible had he got around-to-it sooner… he could have been swimming in friendlier waters!

The health event was now revealing all the possible ways he could have protected and preserved a lifetime of achievements, but there wasn’t time.

 You don’t have to feel forced to make decisions you don’t feel prepared to make… seize the lifetime and legacy opportunities available to you now and enjoy the benefits of protecting and preserving wealth – time with family, creating a legacy – with less worries!

Which “CEO” Are You?

Share Button

Two CEOs are better than one! 

There are two CEOs in most wealthy families.  There is the chief executive officer, and the chief emotional officer.

The chief executive officer understands the assets and financial make-up of the wealth; the chief emotional officer is in touch with the relational influences of wealth on lifestyle and the family.

They need each other for their different perspectives, but too often the chief emotional officer isn’t part of the planning process.

The chief emotional officer has a feel for how much money is being spent on lifestyle, has a pulse on the family dynamics and a vision for giving back.

When the chief emotional officer is left out of the financial decision-making there tends to be a lack of communication leaving family members to speculate from their own grid of experience and personal biases — and speculation is dangerous.

Lifestyle shortfalls, family conflict, inheritance catastrophes and more can be avoided by involving the chief emotional officer in the planning process and opening up the lines of communication between both CEOs.

To supercharge the effectiveness of planning use a third-party wealth specialist who can artfully navigate conversations with the two CEOs about lifestyle, family and giving.

When both CEOs are part of the retirement and wealth planning process the outcome is greater peace of mind, confidence and real understanding.

Wealth is more than money. Don’t just plan for your future, live it right now.

Right Coach, Right Results

Share Button

I’m not a big pro football fan, but I enjoy watching the great teams play. They march onto the field with such confidence.  They know exactly what they want to accomplish. They are united around a clear plan to win.

Too few people march into retirement with the same level of confidence or a clear plan to win.

In retirement planning you are the owner of the team.  And your most important decision in retirement planning is hiring the right coach who will work with you to put your retirement game plan together so you win with confidence.

Here’s a few of the key elements you should look for in that retirement coach: Help you create and focus on your unique retirement wealth vision and goals more than industry products and solutions. Provides results through a proven process to get results. Personal experience with wealth, which is more important than industry designations. The ability to put complex ideas into simple understandable language.  Lastly, a specialist in solving your biggest concerns.

 Hire the right retirement coach or specialist and your confidence will abound.  Hire the wrong coach or go-it-alone and you run the high risk of losing the retirement game and the money you thought you’d have to spend in retirement.

Where is your confidence level in achieving your most desired retirement future?

More Options, Not Less

Share Button

What do more options provide you?  More choice. More possibilities. Potential for better outcomes.  We want more options in our cars, our phones and in our business.

Yet most limit their options for protecting, preserving and passing on their wealth in the most economical, tax-efficient and family-friendly way possible by:

  • not dealing with it soon enough
  • limiting the input to their own
  • doing what everyone else does
  • short-term thinking
  • using traditional planning

Exploring and understanding more of the options on the front-end allows you to narrow the options toward the back-end when you are making decisions.

The secret to getting better results is having a better funnel on the front-end for all the options to be sifted through which increases your confidence about the decisions you make later… which leads to better results you can be more confident about.

You know you have made good informed decisions when the result of the decisions give you greater confidence, and sleep at night peace of mind.

Take this quick self-test about your wealth, retirement and future.  On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being awake at night worry and 10 being always sleep at night and awake by day peace of mind — What score would you give yourself about how you feel about your present situation?

Do You Know Where You’re Headed?

Share Button

If you set out on a cross-country road trip to some of America’s greatest destinations, wouldn’t you enter the desired destination or destinations into your GPS to be sure you got to where you wanted to go? – Only if it matters where you end up, right.

This kind of common sense guides all kinds of good decisions. But for some reason, it fails to guide most wealth and retirement planning. decisions.  This could explain why seven out of ten estate transfers ultimately fail to deliver on desired outcomes.

And less than two out of ten of the failures are due to legal, tax, accounting and improperly drafted estate documents.

Here’s the craziest part – this failure is almost 100% preventable and it impacts retirement lifestyles more than people realize!

The first step and the most overlooked step that is the source of most failure is the lack of clearly known “planning GPS coordinates.”  It’s the clear and precise coordinates that are needed in order to ensure there is absolutely no question that you will lead your deserved retirement lifestyle and create a beneficial legacy for family and causes that matter to you deeply.

Effective wealth and retirement planning is first and foremost about having a clearly defined destination.  Do you have your clearly defined wealth destination written out?

To help you get started, write down the three “must have” retirement results for you, and your family.  Think about it this way, if you didn’t get these three results you’d end up with regrets.

Wealth is more than money. Don’t just plan for your future, live it right now.
