Question of the Week
Question: What are the best investments you’ve made so far this year? (Justin - New York, New York)
Answer:This year I’ve been liquidating a few real estate assets to free up some cash and establishing some lines of credit to have as much dry powder as possible. With that said, I’ve been investing a ton of time and money into masterminds (relationships/network), my employees (training/leadership/retention), and lastly, my life insurance policy (infinite banking concept). Yes I’ve bought real estate and dollar cost averaged my way through the volatility in the stock market, but I’m doubling down on my life insurance as I strongly believe in the power behind Infinite Banking long term and what becoming your own bank can unlock for you. IBC is not only a wealth preservation tool, the wealthiest people on the planet use it as a wealth generation tool.

Pic of the Week
Real estate moves much slower than the stock market and with the FED still raising interest rates, inventory rising, and the recession realities settling in, 2023 is going to be an interesting season for the real estate market. Those who are prepared for this correction will see great opportunities. Are you ready?
Something I’m Excited About:
This week I am flying my mom, dad, daughters, and wifey out to Disneyworld to celebrate my mom and Ella’s bdays. We’ve been grinding HARD the last few years in the hotels and haven’t taken any big family trips post COVID with the whole squad so we’re going to make this a trip for the ages. These are the reasons I’ve pursued financial freedom my whole life. Not because I want think money will make me happier, but for the experiences and memories it will unlock. This is my definition of a RICH life and why I am so passionate about helping other design, build, and live theirs.
PS - Which Disney park do you think I’m most excited to visit and why? Open to any and all suggestions :)
Onward and upward,
