About This Show
Take control of your finances and embrace life without worrying about money.
Wealth building is simple, if you’re doing it right. But in today’s world, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by everything competing for your time and attention. The goal of this podcast is to help you craft a simple plan that truly fits your situation and allows you to achieve financial freedom.
What does financial freedom mean? In IRC Wealth CEO David Ragland's best-selling book Wealth Made Simple (yes, really), he defines financial freedom as no longer having to worry about money. Having true freedom means you are in control of your finances and making your own decisions.
The result: financial security, peace of mind, and the confidence to embrace life and the future with optimism.
We lead by example, following the same investment strategies and principles that we advise others. Behind every financial plan are our four principles:
1) Eliminate debt by creating a system for paying off credit cards and other liabilities
2) Increase savings through retirement plans and a diversified portfolio
3) Reduce risk through life choices and by preparing for the unexpected
4) Build a cash safety net so you’re prepared for unforeseen situations
Achieving your goals, from early retirement to selling a business
Everyone’s situation is different; what it takes for you to be financially independent is unique to you. You work hard, you’ve done well and you’re motivated to reach your goals, whether it’s early retirement or selling your business. We want to help you define what it means to be financially independent and help you get there.

The Three Stages of Divorce with Joanne Donner
4 days ago
“Should I or shouldn’t I?”
For JoAnne Donner of Donner Mediation and Coaching, this is the first question in the first stage of her Three Stages of Divorce.
In this episode, JoAnne discusses her unique perspective that comes from being a credentialed divorce navigator and coach, as well as a certified mediator.
Mediation allows both parties to “have their say” about the issues and be in control of creating their own options and terms for resolution. Mediating parties meet in a private, comfortable, non-litigious setting with the mediator, a neutral third party trained to facilitate communication and guide parties toward settlement. In this role, JoAnne guides one or both parties entering into the “Divorce Spectrum.”
In our conversation, you will learn:
- The three distinct stages of divorce
- The critical step of preparing to take charge
- How to build a team and seek a divorce coach
- What a “Brain’s Book” is and why it is so important to your successful navigation of divorce
- The differences between private vs. court-ordered mediation
- That you don’t have to do it alone!
We also discuss the additional perspectives that need consideration when children are involved. Since you will always be connected through your children, resolutions reached amicably and with civility help promote a calm and enjoyable future for blended families. Think graduations, weddings, birthdays, funerals, and the rest. What do you want those to be like and how do you want to remember them?
At the end of the day, divorce is a legal process, and you need to understand the specifics of your particular situation thoroughly. Whether you move to a private mediation or a court-ordered one, it is important to understand the rules and advantages of this opportunity.
