A lot of people don’t have the time or the motivation to do a deep dive into their finances. And other times people say to us, “Hey guys, I’m not giving up control of my money in any of these five areas of wealth transfer. How do I get started with saving for my short term, intermediate and ultimately retirement savings goals with this concept?”
We talk about the five areas of wealth transfer where we look to find where people are giving up control of their money unknowingly and unnecessarily. Those five areas are: taxes, how you’re funding your real estate, how you’re funding your retirement, how you’re paying for your children’s college education, and then how you make major capital purchases.
But what if you’re not giving away control of your money in any of those five areas of wealth transfer? Does that mean that your cash flow is already as efficient as possible?
But that may not necessarily be the case.
The fact of the matter is, most of your income is flowing through your system, through your checking account, and going to pay for lifestyle or to be reinvested or to help you grow your business.
In many situations, we’ll review how people are using their money and we’ll look at those five areas of wealth transfer and we’ll be able to identify areas that they’re giving up control of their money unknowingly and unnecessarily, and show them how that if they just stop doing that, their circle of wealth will grow. And, if they redirect that same cash flow back to an entity that they own and control, they’ll be able to build a pool of cash that they could access, no questions asked, without having to get permission, in order to expand their business or their personal lifestyle.
In that type of situation, it’s easy for us to identify the leaky holes in your personal economic model or in your bucket, if you will. We’re able to plug those holes and fill up the bucket with money. But if you don’t have any holes in your bucket and instead your bucket doesn’t have a bottom, it’s important to build that foundation and start with what you can afford to put away at this point and then slowly build up that bucket. Keeping that money as efficient as possible so that you’re able to achieve your short term, intermediate and long term financial goals no matter what they may be.
What we have found is that everybody has financial milestones or goals that they need or want to accomplish, and in that case, starting where you are puts you in a better position to make your money more efficient prospectively as you’re going forward, because the more efficient your money could be, the better chance you have of reaching those milestones and more, more importantly, achieving your goals.
A financial goal could be something like paying off your credit cards, your student loans, saving for a down payment on a house, financing a new car, or eventually one day retiring. No matter what your financial goal is, it’s important to start somewhere so that you’re able to build before it’s too late.
You see, with the compound interest curve, there are only two factors to consider, time and consistently putting away money. The sooner you start that compound interest curve, the better your results are going to ultimately be. This goes back to a point earlier, when we say pay yourself first. Again, the whole concept is to make your money more efficient, paying yourself first, make sure that you’re saving or you’re going to be on track to meet those milestones.
