Succession Star Brian Cox Part Two
Play • 9 min

What better time to binge watch a new show, or revisit a favorite, than Thanksgiving weekend?


Earlier this year (pre-pandemic) I had a chance to interview Scottish actor Brian Cox, star of Succession.


Cox, who plays patriarch Logan Roy on the HBO series, talks about how he’s come to understand his character, what the two men have in common and the one question about Logan he’s still struggling with. 


Cox reveals which character he believes is the moral compass on the show and what it has been like working with guest stars Holly Hunter and Cherry Jones.


I'm telling you, if you haven't checked out the show, watch a couple episodes and I guarantee you'll be hooked.

Fighting Stress and Doubt (with Ryan Harris)
Ryan Harris has had a front row seat to stress. Over a 10 year career in the National Football League and 4 years as a starting lineman at Notre Dame, he played in plenty of "this is the most important play of all" situations. Now on a quest to help empower people to embrace better financial habits, the former Super Bowl 50 winner joins us today to talk about how to fight stress and how to live with doubt. He'll also share his own story of making plenty of money but still not possessing the systems to hold on to cash. Should this week's changes on Capitol Hill have you worried for your wallet? I won't even make you wait on this one - THE ANSWER IS NO! During today's headline segment we'll tackle a piece stirring up some unfounded fears that your personal finance "hangs in the balance" over the government change in Washington. You should never stick your head in the sand, and ghost the financial markets over the (D) or (R) in your politician's name. Don't take my word for it... just wait for Joe's rant. We'll also share our thoughts on Tesla reaching a 2 TRILLION dollar valuation in two years, and all the reasons that shouldn't matter at all for your portfolio, even if your friends say otherwise. Plus, not sure if you should pay off your home early? During our Haven Life Line we'll answer a voicemail from one listener weighing the pro and cons of paying off a mortgage on a house they'll only live in for another five years. They ask, should they instead save their extra Benjamins for the next move? Enjoy!

We recorded it one day after the insurrection at the Capitol and the Democratic takeover of the US Senate. Think stocks will continue to shine in 2021? Will rates rise? Will the housing market continue to march higher? Nobody knows, but we're ready to take some educated guesses. As usual, my co-host will be financial journalist Miranda Marquit.

The Power Of Zero Show
The Power Of Zero Show
David McKnight
How to Maximize Your Net Worth When Doing Roth Conversions & More
David has written a number of books on the Power of Zero paradigm for retirement and still does about 90 speaking engagements each year. He also runs a program with around 250 advisors that help him espouse the Power of Zero worldview. The basic premise of the Power of Zero is that due to the fiscal irresponsibility of the US, tax rates will have to rise dramatically over the next few years just to keep the country solvent. Combine that situation with a skyrocketing national debt and unfunded liabilities and there are massive implications for a generation that has the majority of their retirement money in the tax-deferred bucket. If you can situate your retirement assets such that in retirement you are in the zero percent tax bracket then you have effectively insulated yourself from the impact of higher taxes. If you’re in the zero percent tax bracket and tax rates double, two times zero is still zero. Conventional wisdom says that you will be in a lower tax bracket in retirement than during your working years, and that made sense in the 70’s but it doesn’t hold true for the current situation. What he found was that a lot of the deductions you enjoy when you’re working disappear once you retire and many people end up in a higher tax bracket instead. We know that the current tax rates expire on Jan 1, 2026 and they will return to what they were in 2017, but the real danger is what will happen to tax rates in 2028, 2030, and beyond. We are moving into a future where the debt we are taking on will be unsustainable and we will either default on the debt or raise taxes. It will be challenging but there are ways for people to insulate themselves from these dire repercussions. Most people believe that tax rates will be higher in the future, but they still have the majority of their retirement portfolio in the tax-deferred bucket. This means there is a disconnect between what people believe and how they act because of the inertia of traditional wisdom. Like the average person, the federal government has trouble delaying gratification. We do a lot of things as a country that help us scratch our itch in the short term but that has a lot of adverse repercussions over time. This is a problem that pervades every single part of government and society, but there are things we can do to forestall these eventualities. There isn’t an official zero percent tax bracket, but it is possible to not pay tax in retirement by positioning your money in the right amounts in the right accounts. David’s second favorite tax bracket is the 24% tax bracket because it doesn’t “cost” as much. If you’re in the 22% tax bracket, increasing your taxes by 2% will give you an additional $150,000 in shifting capacity to get more of your money into the tax-free bucket before tax rates go up for good. There is a right amount of money to shift each year that doesn’t push you up into a higher tax bracket but allows you to complete all the shifting before 2026. The Roth conversion is the workhorse that allows you to shift your money to the tax-free bucket. The Power of Zero strategy is not hard to implement. Roth conversions are relatively easy to do, in terms of not having to liquidate assets. You just have to be willing and able to pay the taxes from some other source. When you figure out your taxable income, you figure out what your highest marginal tax bracket is. David breaks down the basic process of a Roth conversion and why you should pay your tax at the time of the transfer. Your taxable bucket is your least efficient bucket. You know you have a taxable investment if you receive a 1099 form from your financial institution. This isn’t good because when you amortize those efficiencies over a lifetime, it can cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars. Shift money from your tax-deferred bucket to your tax-free bucket by using money from your least efficient bucket. In the act of paying taxes on our Roth conversion out of our taxable bucket, we are reducing our least efficient bucket and maximizing our most efficient bucket. Study the tax brackets and the fiscal condition of the country. Let’s not invest our money in a reflexive sort of way, let’s be more cognizant of the fiscal condition of the country and make investment decisions accordingly.

Retirement Plan Live 2020: Unexpected Retirement - Trish and Lynn’s Retirement Goals
Welcome to week 2 of Retirement Plan Live 2021! Last week, in episode 359, you got to meet Trish who was unexpectedly laid off last year. She had been hoping to retire within 5 years, but with this layoff, she is exploring the idea that maybe she can retire now. Over the next few episodes, we will walk her through the steps I take with clients to create and test a retirement plan. “You are never too old to set another goal or dream another dream,” -- C.S. Lewis. What is a goal? Before we begin, let’s examine what a goal is. Simply put, a goal is something you want to achieve in the future. We often have larger goals and smaller, more immediate goals. They should be a stair step to your bigger vision. All of my goals stem from my values and vision. Before coming up with your goals, it is important to have a clear understanding of your values -- articulate them and define them. The idea is that your goals help you to live out your values. Have you defined your values, vision, and goals? Needs and wants Let’s talk about needs, wants, and wishes. I like to create 3 categories of spending when creating a retirement plan. This way we can determine a person’s level of fundedness. The first category is the needs category. This is what a person needs to live their baseline life. However, it doesn’t mean simply eating rice and beans every day. Trish estimates that she needs $10,000 per month to live comfortably. The next area is the wants category. One of Trish’s wants is a convertible when they move south. What kind of wants would you put under this heading? Can Trish dream big? The last section we examine is wishes. This is where you dream big without holding back. Some people struggle with this, but others take on this challenge whole-heartedly. Are you able to dream big? What are your most extravagant wishes? Listen in to hear what Trish includes in her wishes, and maybe you’ll find some inspiration for your own planning. Create your own retirement plan If you would like to follow along and do these same exercises on your own, be sure that you are signed up for the 6-Shot Saturday email newsletter to receive worksheets each week to examine your own retirement readiness as we work through this Retirement Plan Live with Trish.
