The Ultimate Guide to Financial Planning Myths

financial-planning-myths-blog-image

What does financial planning entail…and what does it get wrong? See, the financial planning industry has long been perpetuating misleading ideas about retirement, savings, and investments. And a “plan” can only get you so far—assuming everything goes according to plan. Yet life so rarely does. That’s why I advocate for a financial strategy, with enough flexibility to navigate whatever life throws at you.

The foundation of this financial strategy is savings, because having access to liquid cash is the difference between scarcity and true Prosperity. The question isn’t necessarily in how much you save, so much as where you save and how you do it. If you’re using financial planning for retirement, for example, accessibility and tax benefits must be considered.

So much of the typical financial planning industry is about projections and assumptions we can’t possibly predict. Thus, it gives people a false sense of confidence without the necessary dose of realism—that unexpected things can and do happen all the time. In this article, I want to break down the industry myths and give you the confidence that you’ll be prepared for the unexpected. I want you to not just survive but thrive using Prosperity Economics.

Co-authored by best-selling author, Kim D. H. Butler, and Kate Phillips of Total Wealth, Perpetual Wealth may be THE definitive book about building and preserving wealth for generations. It details the advantages of using whole life as a powerful savings strategy, lending method, and legacy vehicle.

Perpetual Wealth also gives the of multi-generational life insurance strategies… how to insure children, grandchildren, even parents.

Perpetual meaning long term legacy and Soul Purpose meaning what I was put on earth to do/give. Those two go together in a way to drives my energies every day. This book gives you some concrete steps to take with your family to work on both Legacy and your own sense of your gifts (and your family's gifts) to the world.

Using Family Financing for leadership development.

Communicating about money, values, legacy and more.

This is – by far – the best way to build intergenerational wealth.
I am always looking for ways to explain the family banking concept to my clients. I’ve researched every other vehicle and method I can find, and I am confident this is - by far - the best way to build intergenerational wealth. Perpetual Wealth is a vital resource for families and business owners who want to create a lasting legacy. The information on how and why to insure children, and the diagrams showing ways to structure policies to benefit generations to come are easy to understand.

Jason I. Henderson, Ph.D.

Beyond Life Insurance

Not “just” a book about life insurance strategies, Perpetual Wealth also covers:

  • 13 strategies for raising financially responsible children.
  • Why “typical” financial advice actually sabotages generational wealth.
  • Lessons and warnings from affluent families on what NOT to do if you want an inheritance to be used wisely.
  • A step-by-step Prosperity Economics “financial blueprint” for each stage of life.
  • Wills, trusts, wealth protection and wealth transfers.
  • Ideas for family retreats, mission statements, a family finance “council” and more.
  • The impact of long-term thinking on your finances… and how to nurture it!

There is power in Perpetual Wealth that is not commonly understood by the typical investor.

The idea of using wealth for multiple purposes to create long-term wealth is one that few people understand and Perpetual Wealth outlines in easy to understand language. I use this system for myself and my clients.

Tom Wheelwright

You Will Discover…

—> The “4 Cornerstones of Generational Wealth” that ensure an inheritance will be wisely used, not wasted.

As someone who has been working in life insurance for years, I loved the step-by-step detail I found in Perpetual Wealth. The book will motivate you to save, show you how and where to save, and how to doit as a family.
