Course Description

Did you know that 60% of working Americans have less than $25,000 saved for retirement and other short-term goals? Do you want to spend your golden years living life to its fullest, while only working when you want to? Do you want to spend your retirement indulging in whatever makes you happy? Do you want to be truly free?

Retirement is supposed to be a time of freedom! Imagine a lifestyle of enjoyment, leisure, and fulfillment. Imagine a lifestyle free from the typical 9 to 5 grind. Freedom does have its price, but fortunately through some planning it is attainable! The sooner you begin investing for retirement, the better off you will be! Investing for retirement can be scary, especially if you have never done it and do not know what to do.

Trust me, I understand! No one is born knowing how to invest; it is a skill that is learned. At the end of the day, investing for retirement is really not that complicated. I can show you how you can invest for your retirement comfortably and successfully!

In this online presentation, we will cover a proven plan for retirement investing success. I introduce, and explain, the EASE principle which is something that I have created and practiced. And the great thing is that it works!

This program covers many topics including investing, qualified plans, the EASE principle, retirement goal-setting, and some rules for success! If you follow the simple principles explained in this presentation, you will achieve success as a retirement investor!

At the age of 28, I am on track to have a retirement nest-egg in excess of $10 million! I am not one of those crazy wealthy people, and I do not have a super high income either. You can produce a large retirement nest-egg, and I can help you get there!

Section 8: Bonus: Financial Professionals

Should you utilize the services of a financial professional? Maybe. But first, it is important to understand financial professionals and what they do.


Financial professionals come in different shapes and sizes. It is important to understand what type of service you can expect!


The method of which your financial adviser or planner is compensated does matter. You are paying for their service!


Licensing is important to consider as licensing affects the type of service a financial professional can provide you.


Watch out for these red flags and use them to "weed out" financial professionals from consideration. These red flags should be "deal breakers!" Protect yourself by being selective.


In the end, a good financial professional can be invaluable. However, it is important to be careful when selecting one. You cannot be too picky in this area of your life!
