35% Annuity Bonus
When soon-to-be retirees are faced with money problems such as market volatility, it can be tough to find solutions that provide peace of mind and reliable income for the upcoming years. Luckily, traditional retirement account alternatives can now offer lifetime income regardless of the economy's financial state. Many people sell annuities as if it's a "one-size fits all," but what they don't know is that there are many options out there. It would help if you were smart enough to find them. Today, we are coming in episode 35 as Bryan will talk about what a 35% bonus annuity entails. So come on, jump right in and give this podcast a listen! What You'll Learn From This Episode: [2:50] Insurance companies didn’t become stable by giving away money.  [4:03] Many people sell annuities but they are too lazy to find something else, so they don’t know what’s in store for them.

[9:46] If you activate lifetime income, the amount will be calculated using a payout factor that depends on your age. [10:25] What is the guaranteed minimum payout? [11:05] It is a bonus that boosts your income, but you have to wait to get it. [11:15] If you pull money out before the waiting period is over, if you take a free withdrawal, then you can take a free withdrawal. [13:05] Bonus is available as a death benefit if paid over five years. [15:29] Get the highest growth rate you can and the highest potential on your money if you want to protect it. Key Quotes: [4:39] “Many people sell annuities as if it is one size fits all.” [5:28] “There’s nothing out there that is free money.

Annuities are Exciting!
Annuities are always a good investment idea, especially when you’re looking for ways to supplement your income in retirement.

War is a Racket
When different ideologies, perspectives, and political views collide, it can result in serious conflict, leading to war. A timely example of this would be the ongoing dispute between Russia and Ukraine. If you look right into the main root of all strife (including this one), it all boils down to a pointless motive fueled by greed. And this unnecessary feud requires perpetual spending, which can lead to severe ramifications.  All of this for what? Ah yes, personal gain for power and money. Business interests commercially benefit from all warfares amidst the mass human suffering, and today Bryan will be discussing a specific book that explains that proposition very well.  This episode may be different from the previous ones, but this is undoubtedly a must-hear.

Key Quotes: [6:38] “Behind every social, economic, or political problem is a pile of money that somebody controls.” [9:12] “A racket is best described as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small inside group knows what it is all about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many.” [15:24] “Fear and greed drive all decisions.” Resources  War is a Racket: The Antiwar Classic by America's Most Decorated Soldier Annuity Newsletter Call Annuity Straight Talk at 800-438-5121 or schedule a call at AnnuityStraightTalk.com

Capital Gains Tax Deferral
When it comes to deferring the capital gains tax that comes along with selling property or other business assets, there are very few options a seller has.

In this episode, we’ll get a chance to hear from John Balmer, who will be going over the ins and outs of the Deferred Sales Trust and how it works to help you get more profit in your real estate business.

So you see a lot of failed 10 31. So that's where we can step in and know not only outright, you know, replace the 10 31, but also rescue a failing 1031 exchange.” -John Balmer10:39 “So they're always looking for the best opportunity in the marketplace. If everything is up, you might want to sit on the sidelines for a period of time, wait for that next market cycle to go through, and buy it at a more opportune time, deferred sales trust gives you the flexibility to do that. Whereas a 1031, based on the timing constraints just doesn't offer that.” -John Balmer14:19 “So let's say you've depreciated your former property all the way down. You're having to deal with issues of depreciation, recapture, things like that.
