You Have Money… Now Can You Keep It?

Share Button

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.

You Don’t Have to Feel the Sting of Regret

Share Button

unnamed (12)As the war was coming to an end in the epic Steven Spielberg classic, Schindler’s List, Oskar Schindler, beautifully played by Liam Neeson, lamented to Itzhak Stern on his regret at not being able to add even more names to his list of those he had been able to save. “I could have got more. I could have got more, I don’t know. If I just… I could have got more… If I had made more money… I didn’t do enough.”

Schindler saved over a thousand people’s lives, but he still felt the sting of regret at not being able to save more.

Do You Have a “Hall of Fame” Focus?

Share Button

unnamed (10)Ted Williams may have been the most focused hitter to ever play major league baseball. His .344 career batting average and 521 home runs prove that the precise strategy he used to predict what pitch might come next and the precision he brought to the plate clearly worked for him. He was also the last player to ever hit .400 for a full season, finishing up at .406 after going 6-for-8 in a season-ending doubleheader—games he decided to play even though sitting out would have protected his exact .400 average.

Failing Forward into Success

Share Button

unnamed (8)Thomas Edison was both hearing impaired and fidgety. He only lasted three months in school where his teachers said he was “too stupid to learn anything.” He was eventually homeschooled by his mom. In talking about his invention of the light bulb, he said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that do not work.” Some may have looked at his earlier life and thought, “What a failure.” But no one in his or her right mind could ever call Edison a failure today—not even close.

Are You Quenched?

Did you know that you could die from drinking too much water? It’s hard to fathom, butunnamed the very liquid of existence—our life-sustaining fluid—can be fatal if ingested in large amounts over a short period of time. It’s a condition called, hyponatremia, in which the level of salt in your blood drops too low, and it can be fatal if left untreated.

And so it seems that too much of something (anything, really) can eventually be a bad thing. In economics, this is known as the Law of Diminishing Returns, which in essence states that too much of something will eventually lead to reduced production.

We all know this, and yet we somehow don’t think it applies to us. Over the years, I’ve seen countless clients reach a point in their businesses where they can say, “I’ve met and exceeded my dreams.” And yet they keep on. Why do they do that?

If Only Macbeth Had Waited

Shakespeare’s Macbeth is a power literary character. More than his memorable lines (“Out, out, damn spot!”), he is a perfect example of a person whose success led him to a tragic ending.

You Don’t Need a Time Machine

Share Button

In the 1980s classic film, Back to the Future, Marty McFly (played by Michael J. Fox) gets the rare opportunity to see what life was like back in 1955. unnamed (4)Compared to today, it certainly seems like a simpler time. There were no reality TV shows, no Internet, no coffee pods, and the media wasn’t present in every single aspect of our lives, warning us of imminent danger ahead for our kids, for our money, and for our very futures.

There are many people who think, “Why couldn’t I have lived back in simpler times? Why do I have to live waiting for the next big economic crash?” This type of thinking doesn’t do anybody any good. Instead, consider this: You were born and are living in the precise time you are supposed to be living.

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?

It’s No Small Decision

Share Button

If you are married or have ever been married, you probably went on many dates with your spouse, or at least spent a considerable amount of time together before deciding to get hitched. For me personally, I courted my wife with runs together in the park, swing dancing, and long meals. September will be 15 years!

Marriage is a big decision, because it affects every single part of your life after you say the words, “I Do.”

The Cure For What Ails You

Share Button

If your go-to cardiologist says you have heart disease, and you take the medicine he prescribes but still have symptoms, what would you do? Do you think you’d return to that same doctor over and over again for the same prescription?

How many times will you go to the same person while you continue to have the same symptoms?

If you’re told you need heart surgery, or even a heart transplant, won’t you seek out a specialist? When my dad was told he needed a heart transplant, we sought the best surgeon in that specialty.

In wealth planning, when you still have concerns, questions, uncertainties, and worries, what are you going to do?

Wealth planning is a life-and-death issue.
