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.
