Today, if I were to do it all over again, I would never do any of the tax-deferred plans. (Not even necessarily the Roth IRA.) Why? Because the government has rules on that money. In this episode, it’s just me and I’m going to discuss the path of the business owner and entrepreneur, as well as how you can maximize your efforts and profits by using the right strategies and making the right decisions with your investments.
Tune in to hear how I view business ownership, from why we get into it in the first place to how the way we run our businesses (and lives) can accelerate us on our path to freedom. I also share some of the things that I would do differently when it comes to business and finances, and the work that needs to be done when it comes to your network and your skill set in order to achieve true freedom.
- 2:15 – Why we get into business in the first place.
- 3:42 – The ups and downs of business and my thoughts on the process of investment and business growth.
- 7:15 – Navigating the rising costs of taxes, lifestyle, and what to do with what’s left over.
- 9:17 – Retirement planning: where people often miss out and what to be careful of.
- 13:21 – The value of building your own network and skill sets.
- 16:00 – The whole point in having equity and how the financial world tends to get it wrong.
- 18:05 – What you need to be careful of and what NOT to count on.
- 19:31 – A key thing to remember when it comes to tax.
- 22:50 – What’s next after you put your business on the market.
- 24:18 – The two most critical times in your life.
