Using Life Insurance to be your own bank

Video: Using Life Insurance to be your own bank

Find more videos in the video section. And please share the podcast by emailing it (I know you guys don’t want to share on social media because you are scared of others knowing that you are going to quit your job. I just want to get the word out that there is something other than the stock market!

The inspiration behind this:

I got really upset the other day. A friend of mine was talking to a so called financial planner and was getting sold Whole Life Insurance. To set the stage, the subject client did not have investments or much cashflow. Why the heck was Whole Life Insurance was being prescribed?!? Oh because Whole Life has some fat commissions and the ding-dong financial planner does not know enough to get themself out the rat-race.

I have been doing a lot of thinking lately… about what I really want to do with myself. One realization I have discovered is when something gets you so upset or passionate (like a financial planner screwing regular people… people who don’t have the cashflow or liquidity and being sold on the BS line of “conservative investing”) you have found a higher calling.

My rant is now over… As we covered very briefly on this past podcast. We are not talking about buying these types of policies for “insurance” or death payout, we are doing it for liquidity (to invest) and shield assets from creditors or lawsuits. I spoke to a couple other life insurance guys (smart guys) but they don’t get this either. They just tried to sell EIULs which do have higher yields but don’t have the liquidity component we are looking for so we can take out a loan from ourselves to invest and make a spread on the difference.

 

Podcast #061 – #LaneHack – Frank Ostaseski – What the Dying Teach the Living

 

Those who find Simple Passive Cashflow seem have a common habit of delay gratification and Type-A personalities. We struggle to find balance from living today (YOLO) or living 50 to 100 years. Decisions and mindsets that are optimized for one end of the spectrum are a detriment to the goals of the other. Frank Ostaseski in his 1.5 hour talk “What the Dying Teach the Living” gives us great insights with his insights of working with those who are in the last leg of life. Personally I have giving up on trying to be a normal engineer and learn things on my own when I can compress learning curves and learn from the experience of others.
1) Don’t Wait – What are you waiting on? Compress learning curves and get Real Estate coaching 😉
2) Welcome everything, push away nothing – we are free to be open?
3) Bring your whole self to the experience
4) Find a place of rest in the busy of things – don’t wait until you are less busy
5) Cultivate don’t know mind – your ego gets in the way of greatness, question everything.

American Home Preservation (AHP) looking to close on their biggest pool of 799 homes

American Home Preservation (AHP) is a sponsor of the Simple Passive Cashflow Podcast. But more importantly, I personally invest money in the fund. It literally pays my car lease!

Watch 40-minute webinar here:

https://youtu.be/ZvKue-rq4y8

Highlights of the investment

 

  • You are helping people stay in their homes as AHP buys the loans from the banks and attempts to structure a more manageable payment schedule for the existing homeowner
  • AHP pays 12% a year. You get 1% every month like clockwork
  • I use it as an “Opportunity Fund” holding tank because of the liquidity

 

You can start with $100 bucks and then you can incrementally increase your investment however you want.

Birmingham Troubles – $2500 for Repair of Clay Pipes

I was having a lot of trouble with the plumbing getting clogged up in this particular property. Especially when it rained.

Come to find out the roots outside the home were growing in the pipes. These pipes were made out of clay and the roots like to find the water source and break the pipes. The solution is to get a Backhoe and operator for half the day to dig up the old pipes and replace with PVC. Where did I get this info??? My day job as an engineer 😛

Commentary of the market from my crystal ball:
The Fed and Executive branch are in conflict. Both want control and want to wrestle control away from the other and make the other look bad.

Look out for instability in China as it might be the trigger for economic weakness.

Why You Should Not Quit Your Day Job

 

Because of my podcast, I have a space to book appointments. (BTW use Calanderly app which puts a link on your signature line) About every other day I talk with a new person who is on the verge or able to leave the rat race. We talk about how much passive income is required some it’s 3000 to travel around Asia and some with families it’s 8000. I want to highlight that the natural inclination is to leave your job. As for us, all high achievers know what is easy and the beaten path should be questioned. You should stay at your job and keep doing this as a side gig… People always want to jump into entrepreneurship And it’s really not a good idea or even needed. When we mean entrepreneurship… I mean not dip your toes in but going all in. Like Gary V sleep 4 hours, Grant Cardone x10 stop being a bitch, Burn the boats all in. A lot of motivational gurus will tell you to dream big, commit and go all it – buy that fancy car now so you set that bar high and force yourself to achieve it. They don’t know your situation and often times these gurus are outliers and often they themselves did not follow the same advice. Don’t buy into survivorship bias. For every entrepreneur who goes all-in and even does it as a side gig only the minority succeeds. To focus only on those successes is a logical fallacy. Despite a superior product and optimal skill set so many things can still go wrong. You are not going to give your business what it NEEDS when you are worried about putting food on the table and paying rent. This frenzied survival causes two things: First, you are less creative in this survival mode. Outsource yourself as much as possible first. Hire the help first or you will be drowning in manuchia. You will not be leveraging your time or your skills. This will require you to create lean and efficient systems which is what building a business is all about at its core. As Robert Kiyosaki differentiates in his book “Cashflow Quadrant” an entrepreneur builds a system that they can be removed and scaled where as an entrepreneur who does not build a system is just a glorified self-employee. The second when you are in this survival mode you are taking unneeded risks and making mistakes such as forcing the wrong deal or giving up excessive equity for taking on VC capital. As a side note a big part of a business is negotiation and in negotiation, the biggest component is the ability to walk away. Not having a job and supplemental income source or cash buffer torpedoes your pillar to negotiate. You are effectively the Emperor with no clothes and everyone you deal with and your customers know it. Just as ask any women… they can smell desperation in a potential suitor. You should only quit your job once you can scale. And YOU should be the last part of the business that can’t scale because you have a job and business needs more of you to scale. You have to be the bottleneck. Don’t dilute yourself into thinking you are the bottleneck because you just want to quit your job because it is a badge of honor when it comes to running a business or quitting your job. A lot of entrepreneurs just want to quit their job because they just want to tell all their friends and family they the told the Man to F off, they don’t want a boss, and they have escaped the 9-5 rat race. It’s cool to be like I’m all-in, I don’t have a JOB. That is an ego thing and we need to be conscious when our ego is leading and not logic. I spent a decade working my way up through junior level jobs, being a first level supervisor, and managing professional and learned a lot of how a mature business works and interpersonal. I wish I would have had this mindset earlier but I realized recently that working for someone else is a privilege to try things out (FSU) on someone else’s dime. You don’t want to be trying some new marketing scheme or leadership technique the first time when you get your one shot to swing the bat. It is not the time to be “finding your management style” when you step up to the batter’s box with your own capital at risk. Here a joke… when at your day job rub off the labels of the letters on the keyboard to use work as a time to master no look typing. Or just try something different because it might work for you in large ventures… you own ventures. In conclusion, ask yourself why am I wanting to leave? Is it because of ego or necessary? And have I acquired both the skills, proof of concept, and starting capital to create this “runway” for my business to thrive.
