Freedom Based Banking ft Ryan Clark of Qube Money - PB181
Ryan Clark, founder and President of Qube Money, entered the financial services industry, first in the real estate market, then as a mortgage broker, before realizing that his true passion was teaching people about money. In his ten years as a financial planner, Ryan watched his clients fail at budgeting repeatedly despite his recommendations and wanted to find a solution to help them manage their money successfully. This inspired him to create a digital cash envelope system, and he launched Qube Money to provide better tools, systems, and training to clients, to allow them to work toward real financial freedom. Ryan joins me today to dive into why he developed Qube Money in response to his frustration over not finding something that suited him and his clients and enabled them to exercise real-time control over their finances. He discusses why Qube’s mission is central to their long term success and how it ensures that they meet their commitment to freeing people from the tyranny of money. Ryan also shares the number one reason people hate budgeting and explains how Qube can cut the time you spend managing your finances.   “Everything that you want to do in life stems from how you control the resources that you’re given - and money is a resource. It builds a financial house, and cash flow is the foundation.” - Ryan Clark   *This week on Paychecks and Balances: * ●      Why current fintech solutions for tracking your money don’t work ●      Ryan’s entrepreneurship journey and how he moved from financial planning to the tech arena ●      The central belief  that continues to motive Ryan and the Qube Money team  ●      Why there have been so many ups and downs in developing the Qube technology and bringing it out of the beta phase ●      What digital cash envelopes are, how they work, and why Qube technology continues to improve its customer experience and efficacy ●      How Qube connects you to your money and stops you from overspending in the moment ●      Why intentional financial planning is empowering and gives you the freedom to spend where it’s most important to you ●      How Qube is different from other platforms out there right now ●      Why Ryan is confident that Qube Money goes further than other apps to prevent fraudulent transactions   *Connect with Pete McPherson:* ●      Qube Money Website ●      Qube Money on Facebook  ●      Qube Money Instagram ●      Qube Money on Twitter *Connect with Paychecks and Balances:* ●      Paychecks and Balances Website ●      Patreon Paychecks and Balances ●      Paychecks and Balances on Instagram ●      Paychecks and Balances on Facebook ●      Paychecks and Balances on Twitter

Retirement Plan Live 2021 - Unexpected Retirement: Counting It Up - Trish’s Resources
Last week in Retirement Plan Live, Trish dreamed up big dreams for her retirement. In this episode, we are going to outline her resources to see if she has the ability to fund those dreams. Organizing your resources is an important step in retirement planning. Listen in to learn how important it is to plan what you want to use your resources for, and let’s see if Trish has what it takes to build her retirement dreams. What is a resource? A resource is a natural source of wealth or revenue. It is also a natural feature that enhances the quality of life. It’s what you do with your resources that matters. If you are listening to this show you are probably over 50 which means that you have spent decades building your resources. You’ve built up all 3 categories of resources -- human capital, social capital, and financial capital. Human capital includes your skillset and reputation. Social capital includes pensions and Social Security. Financial capital doesn’t only include your money, it also includes houses and boats in addition to your retirement accounts. What will you use your resources for? When you look at your resources in retirement you have to ask yourself to what end are all these resources for? What is this money for? In retirement, your resources are meant to be used to express your values through your goals that you live out in the season of retirement. Dying with too much money is poor stewardship. It means that your resources were never harvested to live out your values. Think about what you want to do with your abundance. Be intentional and create the life that you want. Explore the options you have now so that you don’t leave your resources like a neglected crop left to be absorbed back into the earth. What kind of capital does Trish have? In our last episode, Trish dreamed big -- European vacations, a second and maybe 3rd home, a convertible, the works. Now that we’ve got her thinking big, we have to see what she can afford. It’s time to take stock of her resources. Just like you and I, Trish has social capital, human capital, and financial capital. She will collect Social Security when the time comes and would like to use her human capital in some capacity until she is 59. Listen in to hear how I walk her through her balance sheet and organize her resources.
