Now, I'm on a mission to create financial independence, financial FREEdom and - since I'm too old to retire early - a long, happy, healthy life! With the help of fascinating guests who are expert investors, holistic health practitioners, coaches and speakers, we tackle the tough questions like: Why? and How? Join me on this ride for your life!

Spice Up Your Real Estate Investing with Chris Odegard
Are you tired of your investments not even keeping pace with inflation? Have you been meaning to get into real estate but feel you've missed the market? You're not alone! In this episode of Get Your FILL - Financial Independence & Long Life Podcast, Alternative Investor, Chris Odegard, shares how he lost half of his retirement investment and then came back with a vengeance!    Listen to the podcast Watch the video Catch up with Chris:  Website   YouTube   LinkedIn    From Chris Odegard I wasn’t always The Prolific Investor. I was raised in a middle-class family in Forest Park, Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati. There I learned precisely what my parents knew, get an education, get a job with benefits and a pension, and invest your money in a well-diversified portfolio of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and ETFs through a 401K.   And that’s exactly what I did for the next twenty-plus years. I acquired my education at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida and went on to work for The Boeing Company. On balance, my 33.5 years at Boeing were remarkable, a tremendous adventure and learning experience. My travels have taken me to over thirty countries, including Katmandu. How many people can say they’ve been to Katmandu? I had many different jobs over the years; most notable was Director of Contracts, where I wrote and negotiated contracts for the sale of 737, 747, 777, and 787 aircraft to airlines worldwide and one royal family. This is where my love for business was born. While my formal education stopped with my bachelor’s degree from Embry-Riddle, this job was an MBA on steroids! What I learned in big business has helped me tremendously in the small business world in which I operate today.   This path served me quite well in many ways. It put me in the middle class where I raised a family, put two children through college, and was on track for a comfortable retirement at age sixty-five. I was precisely what Robert Kiyosaki calls an “E,” an employee, in his book Rich Dad’s Cashflow Quadrant: Rich Dad’s Guide to Financial Freedom. And even though being an “E” and following the conventional investing worked for me to an extent, I now know that in following that path, I left millions of dollars on the table. t is a very different time now, and I don’t believe this path will work for my children and other young people today. They will need to be smarter at a younger age than I was. A look at some statistics from a study conducted by clearly tell us that conventional wisdom isn’t working:   34% of Americans have $0 in savings 69% of Americans have less than $10K in saving 46% of Americans have $0 in retirement savings 65% of Americans have less than $10K in retirement savings 49% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck 36% of Americans believe they are ready for retirement Read more about Chris here

Introverts - Fulfill Your Destiny with Jenny Toh
Would you like to move up the corporate ladder? Do you long to realize your entrepreneurial dream? Is your introversion keeping you from achieving your goals? On this episode of Get Your FILL Financial Independence & Long Life Podcast, Jenny Toh, successful and introverted attorney and coach, shares her story and ways that we can all move forward regardless of our personal style.   Listen to the podcast Visit Jenny's website Watch the video About Jenny Jenny is an ICF ACC coach who is the director of River Life Coaching Pte. Ltd., her life coaching practice where she coaches individuals to define success on their own terms personally and professionally. Jenny is passionate about empowering introverted women to remain authentic. She is also a lawyer and a mother of three living in Singapore.    From Jenny It all begins with an idea. “What is missing in my life?” I have asked this question so many times in my own life journey.     I was doing well professionally. I studied law in England. My legal career spanned almost 3 decades in Malaysia and Singapore. I worked as a litigator, a corporate attorney and a derivatives legal counsel. My employers were specialized boutique law firms, a global oil and gas company as well as leading regional and global banks.    On the personal front, I have a supportive husband and 3 fantastic children who never cease to amaze me with their unique personalities. I am blessed with close-knit friends whom I know I can count on at any given time, no matter where they are geographically. I am an active member in my local church and my husband and I do our part to contribute to the church’s various ministries.   Yet, there was an inner yearning for something more. I felt that I was not living my life to its fullest potential. …and yet something was still missing.  I first experienced coaching in an organization that I worked for. I felt its powerful impact. I wanted to learn more and to coach beyond the organizational space. I had put off training as a professional coach because I told myself that it could wait until my life is less busy. Life just got busier and I felt even more unsettled. It came to a point when I could not silence my inner voice, “Stop making excuses! If you don’t do this now, you will never do it! You will live to regret it!” So, I took the plunge and never looked back since!    Let me help you take that leap of faith!

Find Private Lenders with Jay Conner
Want to buy real estate but don't have the cash? You know about banks and mortgage companies. You probably also have at least heard of "hard money" but did you know that private lending is another great option to use OPM, Other People's Money, to fund your real estate investments? One this week's episode of Get Your FILL, Financial Independence & Long Life, Jay Conner, The Private Money Authority, explains what private money is and how you can create a win/win by partnering with private lenders.   Listen to the podcast Visit Jay's website Watch the video From Jay My name is Jay Conner…and let me tell you: I CAN RELATE to all these feelings and frustrations of losing out on so many deals. When I started out investing in Real Estate, I did it ALL THE WRONG WAY! Like so many other Real Estate Investors, I was taken to the slaughter house. I went to my local banker and was able to do a few deals…but you know what happened: I had to come up with Big Down Payments, pay origination fees, and most importantly…play by their rules. (Including signing personal guarantees on everything I owned.) I hated it. I felt owned by the bank, out of control, and stressed out.   So, I got some education and learned about buying properties “Subject-To,” Using Options, and buying with “Lease/Options.” These tools opened up my opportunities, but then The Hammer Came Down!!! When the market turned south big-time…my banker CUT ME OFF!!! With No Warning!!! I knew I had to find another way. I searched high and low for another system that would give me the funds I needed. Then I realized I needed to combine the best aspects of all that I researched. And that’s whenI created the basis for this system. I kept refining it until I thought I had the best formula. Then I put it all together and made contact with my first prospect. I trusted my system and the very first person I approached gave me $250,000 in Private Money…and what blew me away was How Easy It Was!!!   Within a few, short months…I had $2,150,000 in Private Money!!! And that was just a couple of years ago…and it has ROCKED MY REAL ESTATE INVESTING CAREER! (My banker actually did me a HUGE FAVOR…I just didn’t know it at the time because that set-back forced me to create the system that would bring me lots of money Fast and Easy without relying on bankers or my credit.) The Massive Profits (7 Figures Per Year) I’ve been blessed to enjoy by creating and putting into action my “Where To Get The Money Now” System has without a doubt been my Biggest Quantum Leap since becoming a Real Estate Investor. And I live in a city with only 40,000 people.

Tune into Your Inner Voice
You've heard it many times: Let go and let God, but how? How can you distinguish the "still small voice" from all of the other noise in your head? How can you tap into your inner being, your higher self, to achieve more health, happiness and harmony? In this week's Get Your FILL, Financial Independence & Long Life podcast, Margaret Agard,  an award-winning author, former executive in the high tech industry, self-described Christian mystic and Reiki Level II Healer, helps us to tune in to the voice of infinite intelligence.    Listen to the podcast Visit Margaret's website Watch the video About Margaret:   Former executive in the high tech industry, author, speaker, Christian mystic and reiki healer.  Margaret focuses on helping others change their lives and finding true purpose by turning their to-do lists over to God (higher power/spirit/inner voice.)  Her story appeals to many who have more to do than time to do it in, and want to live their best life. At the time she started this practice she was a single mother of eight, working full time as the sole financial support for her family, and had returned to university full time to finish the last few credits for her bachelors degree in mathematics. She slept less than four hours a night and often woke in a panic worrying about what wasn't getting done. Her previous practice of prioritizing and focusing on the "most important" tasks wasn't working. After turning her to-do list over to God she "got more done, more sleep, and had less stress."    Her story inspires others to do the same.

Put Amazon to Work for You with Neil Twa
Interested in e-com? Want to learn how to leverage the awesome power and reach of Amazon to help you to identify the right product, then handle marketing, warehousing and delivery? Are you ready to make a 6- or 7-figure income in the next 6-12 months? Then snuggle in and listen! This week's guest on Get Your FILL, Financial Independence & Long Life Podcast is Amazon FBA Strategist and Mentor, Neil Twa.   Link to the podcast Link to the video Free training from Neil About Neil  Voltage Digital launches, operates, and acquires e-commerce brands with a focus on Amazon FBA and private label.   No we do not manage 'Walmart / Amz' automation stores that are against the TOS. We build businesses selling private label brands that are worth more when we exit them, than at any other time during the business building phase.   Would you like to build a passive income stream using the leveraged power of Amazon FBA, a 1x1 mentoring to learn how to set it all up, and a passive income opportunity with a 'pay as you profit' model of engagement under a scale and exit the business strategy?  IF YES... consider the following carefully... I'm putting together a small group of 30 go getters who are looking to spend the next 12 months executing WITH our direct mentoring in a unique "pay as you profit" or "skin in the game" model of business.    By allowing new sellers to execute a simple 4-step '5:5 game plan' with product research, launch strategy, PPC templates and secret launch tactics to achieve a performance driven goal based on NET profits, not revenues.    Even 100% passive income opportunities to make it complete hands off!   We show people how to get started, and launch a brand in only 10-15 hours of commitment each week, WITHOUT guessing if products sell, wondering if they will be successful like flying without a pilots license.   Brian had no experience in ecom whatsoever when he began working WITH us, now he - added on an average of 10 new sales a day with $46 in profit per unit - structured his business to change his taxable income significantly and protect his IP - raised his prices and increased his monthly take home significantly - created a brand that can be grown passively via our DFY account management services   AND did it all within a private label business that will exit for big returns in 18-24 months!   THEN we'll help him do it all again. This time faster, and bigger.   Would you like to understand the "Business Builders 5:5 Game Plan" and mentoring he followed, to work WITH us in a 1x1 plan of action that could get results like this for your business that deploys capital into a 'pay as you profit model" with a skin in the game approach to paying us on a performance basis?   If YES...DM here on Linkedin with keyword "LINKMEUP", and I'll share my "5:5 Game Plan" with you and show you have to THRIVE not just SURVIVE this year!   To your success, Neil   P.S. I have a free 40 minute training that covers everything in detail here if you want to learn more on your own time

The Contrarian's Guide to a Wonderful Life
What is a contrarian? If you say the sky is blue and I say it's pink, that makes me a contrarian. I'm not going along with what everyone else is saying, I'm going to look out my window and see for myself. That willingness to do your own research and form your own conclusions sometimes means you'll be going against the status quo. That's exactly how Myles Wakeham has lived his life and it's made him a multi-millionaire.    On this week's Get Your FILL - Financial Independence and Long Life podcast, Myles shares the decisions that have got him where he is today and tips to bring your retirement day closer.    Listen to the podcast Watch the video About Myles:  Myles is atypical and yet successful. He is a multi-millionaire, having had that status (and lost it) 3 times in his life. Today his final success has led him to tell his story through his appearances on dozens of media outlets and through hosting his podcast “The Unconstrained Podcast”.   Originally from Adelaide, Australia, Myies began is career as a software developer in the late 1970s, having never even graduated high school. After success in his field, he moved to the USA at the age of 24, with nothing more than a bag of clothes and left a millionaire. Myles rejects the social norms of education, 9-5 job, and retirement outright and shows through his methods that one can live a financially sustainable life regardless of background, geography or education. His approach to being a contrarian shows that going against the herd can pay off.   Myles website Myles’ podcast

This is similar to a moment. It is there, defined and seemingly settled. Then, there is a breath, a shift, a change.   When we come into the world we are given the chance to live, breathe and take in the space around us, seemingly without any consequence. We live from moment to moment with a sense of wonder without defining our experience. We live in acceptance and trust.   As we get older, our relationship with the world and more importantly with ourselves changes. Instead of taking the world in with wonder, we define it. We define ourselves in relationship to the world around us in such a way that there is no room for change. There is no room for choice.   What if we had choice?   Connect with Katie:

Become an Innate Marketing Genius with Christina Frei
Christina Frei has created her own method of finding your superpower and using the power of Why to create a perfect strategy to market your business. Innate Marketing Genius is a way to be authentic in how you connect with prospects. It teaches you how to trust your instincts and get clear on what’s the best way forward for you. It connects you to your natural inner marketing strategy. Your marketing becomes an extension of who you are, instead of just another chore. This empowering approach changes everything. Barriers disappear, you connect with your prospective clients in a new way, you find powerful focus, you become exactly the marketer you’ve always known you are. That inner awesome has always been there, hasn’t it? Let’s discover it.  Watch the video From Christina:   For a long time, I focused on the strategic side of marketing.  After graduating from Wellesley College, I worked as a media buyer for J. Walter Thompson (Unilever), as an account executive at TBWA/Chiat Day and Fallon McElligott (NBA), as a marketing manager in a Shelton, CT-based semiconductor company, as a business manager at a construction firm.  It was all about doing the right thing and getting results. And that was great. But something was missing. It all felt very flat.   When you contemplate what can happen in human connection, marketing sparkles with possibilities.  It just needs to be real, vulnerable, authentic. And I get the allure of the “right strategy.” When I was a youth speaker obsessed with the Founding Fathers, I made cold calls to PTA parents, posted to Facebook, wrote a book – 5 Rockstars of the American Revolution – and eventually got on the History Channel and the Today Show. All the right things. (Yup, I met Henry Rollins – twice). In 2014, I needed to generate income quickly, and I decided I wanted to do this from the deepest part of myself. I was done following “good strategies.”   Link to Christina’s websites: Link to free gift from Christina - your assessment

Protect Your Wealth with Joelle Ferraiuolo
Joelle Ferraiuolo is a Protector of Wealth and Personal Insurance Concierge! If you have or need property insurance, you will benefit from Joelle's tips and insider info on getting the right policy with the appropriate coverage at the right price. Don't be turned off by the topic, Joelle is anything but ho-hum and her information could save your butt!   Watch the video About Joelle:   ◇ Building relationships and nurturing them is a way of life for me and what I love most about my work. I advocate for my clients and most have become friends along the way. ◇   Property and Casualty insurance is evolving! Many home and business owners are unaware of the complexity that is their policy and who they trust to pay for damages when they have to file a claim. If you are not savvy about the details of your insurance policy contract, your claims adjuster has the upper hand!   So what can you do?   1️⃣ Choose an independent agent rather than a direct insurance company. An agent can advocate for you and does not have loyalty to only one insurance company.   2️⃣ Ask questions! Don't be afraid to ask questions about your insurance. The only one who will be hurt if you don't understand your policy, is YOU.   3️⃣ Think holistically! Insurance is a form of protection and should be cohesive between all exposures of risk. If they do not "talk" to one another, you could have major gaps in coverage.   Being well versed in insurance is not for everyone and most people simply do not have time. That's where I come in!   Insurance is my life, my expertise and my passion. I help people retain their lifestyles even after a catastrophic loss. My clients have worked hard to grow their wealth and successful businesses. My consultative approach to insurance provides the right coverage to protect their legacies.   If you have questions about your current insurance, would like to know what types of risks you face, or simply wish to have an audit of your policy, let's chat. We can have a conversation where you can decide if working together is a good fit.   Here is a link to my personal calendar:  Please pick a time that works for you.   ☎ 508-471-1181 📱 401-486-2075 💻
