Three Things We Learned from this Episode

  • How our checking accounts get in the way of constant compounding

When we use a savings or checking account, we’re constantly putting money in and taking it out. Every time we take it out, we’re interrupting the compound.


  • How Lost Opportunity Cost affects us financially

The moment we spend a dollar, we’ve lost the opportunity to make anything on that dollar. We can’t put it towards something that can make us more money.


  • The beauty of life insurance contracts

Put money into a life insurance contract, and it’s going to grow uninterrupted. You’ll still have access to the money while it continues to grow. You also get the benefit of it being tax-free if you keep it permanently.


By bringing together life insurance contracts and tax-free benefits while saving money, amazing things can happen for us. You get the peace of mind of knowing that your money is saved, easy to access, and growing tax-free.
