174: Why You’re Worth More Than You Know, Taxes, LLCs, and Cash Flow vs. Appreciation
Why You're Worth More Than You Know, Taxes, LLCs, and Cash Flow vs. Appreciation
You actually want to increase your personal expenses over the long-term. What kind of financial blasphemy is this? I explain. You are worth more than you think. I tell you why. If you’re 30 and you live until age 90, you only have 60 more autumns in your life. You only have 7% of your time left with your own parents. Your quality time is valuable and fleeting.

I bring you today’s show from the Dominican Republic, where I’m vacationing.
