Triple-down economics

It takes me thrice as long as a normal human to learn something. For some weird reason, I’m a glutton for punishment.

Here’s what I mean.

When I first started out in the finance biz, I was enthusiastic about whole life insurance, but…

It was boring. I mean… the contract is a bunch of guarantees.

You pay a guaranteed level premium, and get guaranteed death benefit forever, guaranteed cash value, guaranteed cash loans to access the money.

Blah blah blah.

It’s not secksy at all. I mean when you know exactly what your savings will be in 30 years, where’s the fun in that? So I started investing.

I bought all sorts of things. Sometimes I made money. Sometimes I lost money. Sometimes I lost a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT money.

And I learned a few things:

  1. Do not pee into the wind.
  2. Do not tug on superman’s cape.
  3. Do not write stock options.

So when I lost my entire savings the first time, do you think I learned my lesson?

Haha. Surely you jest.

It took two more times before I FINALLY learned my lesson.

Always always always insure my savings first. Then, learn how to take rational risks when investing.

Why do I mention all this?

Well, after my last webinar, i realized something. I overcomplicated something which is really quite simple.

Violated my own rule.


This coming Saturday, I’m hosting another webinar on following the cardinal rules of saving, insuring, and investing:

Rule #1: Never lose money.

Rule #2: Never forget rule #1.

I’ll show you how my wife and I protect our savings and how you can too. I’ll also show you how to increase your savings without saving more and without investing.
