Round Table | How Safe is My Cash Value?

How safe is your money? The answer to this question is heavily dependent on where you're putting your money. And that depends on what makes the most sense for your financial situation. For example, if you know how IBC works, you're probably putting most of your money in life insurance where it accumulates cash value, which you can then use as a source of cash flow for investments or other purchases. But how safe is your cash value? That’s what today’s conversation is all about.

How safe is your money in a traditional bank vs. an insurance company?

What are the potential threats to your money?

What happens if the government changes its rules on cash value?

Taking Ownership of the Deal Flow with Denis Shapiro

How do you build passive income outside the traditional investment portfolio? Russ and Joey have always been passionate about different aspects of investing and diverse ways of building wealth. So they bring in Denis Shapiro to talk about alternative investments in today's episode. Denis began investing in real estate in 2012 when the market was just beginning to recover from the global financial crisis. He then built a cash-flowing portfolio that includes many alternative assets. Next, leveraging the lessons learned throughout his career, Denis launched SIH Capital Group, an alternative investment fund that provides accredited investors with a simplified strategy to invest for passive income.

First, networking with the right people can significantly accelerate your success.

Next, make sure your deals are well documented and the roles and responsibilities of each partner are clearly outlined.

Finally, learn from your mistakes and take advantage of all the possibilities that alternative investments provide you.

Denis Shapiro

Denis Shapiro is the author of The Alternative Investment Almanac: Expert Insights on Building Personal Wealth in Non-Traditional Ways. He started investing in stocks and bonds 20 years ago, facing the frustrations of investing for income using traditional Wall Street methods throughout that time. In 2021, Denis decided to offer a better solution for investors looking for yields that were shielded from dramatic fluctuations. He realized that leveraging alternative investments with limited liquidity was the solution Wall Street couldn't provide. That idea led to the birth of SIH Capital Group.

Round Table | Inflation...What is it Good For?

Inflation is continuously rising. But what does it really mean? Economists and financial experts claim that a certain level of inflation is a sign that the economy is healthy. Yet consumers who rely on fixed income cannot fully agree, especially when inflation impacts them through higher prices of goods and services. It hurts them financially because now they have to pay more for the same things. If there's a way for people to increase their purchasing power, wouldn't you want to know about it? To get a better understanding of how higher inflation could affect us and what we can do about it, tune in to this round table as the coaches talk about three things: What is inflation? How does it work against us? Is there a way to make inflation work for you? If you want better control of your future, join the Wealth Without Wall Street community.

How to Build Passive Income While Making Music with Jordan Critz

Are you satisfied with what you do to make money, or are you trapped in a soul-crushing career? Many entertain the idea of making money out of their passion. Some people have successfully transformed their hobby into a viable business venture, sometimes being called “passion-preneurs.” Today's guest is someone who has made money with his music. But he didn't stop there. Instead, he searched for ways to replace that money with passive income streams to continue creating music out of passion. He believes that you should never trade your art for commerce. Tune in to this episode with award-winning American composer, producer, and songwriter Jordan Critz.

Money flows in when your heart is in the right place

Why you should never let your passion be your only source of income
