Why Traditional Retirement Planning is Garbage

We have to accept that economic cycles and volatility are facts of life.

But there’s more volatility in the current markets than ever before.

 

 

If you know me, you know that I have a strong bias toward alternative investments, particularly Real Estate, as opposed to the Wall Street financial markets.

The traditional financial model tells you to accumulate money and put it on Wall Street in some sort of construct – 401ks, stock equities, bonds, annuities, index funds, etc.)

But then they’ll have you.

The Wall Street financial advisors will have your money in these constructs and ride that up and down cycle your whole life.

Every time you take a drop of 20, 30, or even 50%, like in 2008, it takes a lot of time to get back up to where you were before.

You lose time, maybe as much as a decade, going down and back up again.

How many decades can you afford to lose?

When you’re 40, 50, 60 years old, you can’t afford to lose another decade!

When you tell financial advisors you’re ready to sell your business, they tell you to move your money out of the stock market and into bonds, CDs, or t-bills – to preserve your capital.

What were they doing all these years when they were putting your money into investments with volatility?

The uncertainty of the financial markets causes way too many people to stay working much longer than they have to.

They’re advised to accumulate ridiculously large stockpiles (sometimes up to $10 million), but are never instructed on how to orchestrate cash flow.

Accumulation means nothing in a volatile market.

That’s the game: cash flow, not accumulation.

And that’s what we do at Freedom Founders.

If you’re even considering trying to let go, and get out of Wall Street, but want to do it faster or safer, you owe it to yourself to check Freedom Founders out.

Now’s the time to get on board, because we’re going to have another reset within a relatively short period of time.

People will get sucked in again, lose a lot of capital, and have to stay on that treadmill for years.

Don’t let that happen to you.

We have 21 guest seats for our August event, and 9 are already taken.
