(March 02, 2015) The Del Walmsley Radio Show: Leveraging Your Financial Timeline

If it’s been a while since you sat down with your significant other or a close friend/family member to talk about your finances and what they’ve done for you in the past few years, maybe it’s time you had that conversation again. If in this conversation, you weigh all of your income (both passive and not) against all of your expenses and it doesn’t seem like you’re making much, don’t sugarcoat the truth, you aren’t making that much. In order to leverage your financial timeline, it is important for you to know that nobody is going to hand you the silver spoon – not your grandmother, not your employer and certainly not your government. Why? They are all trying to make money themselves. This podcast will highlight the fact that your life (in part) is a business, and if you don’t have a project in place to secure long lasting wealth, this business will continue to scrape along, catching every bump in the road along the way.

(February 23, 2015) The Del Walmsley Radio Show: Passing The “Torch” From Generation To Generation

For many of us, it can be hard to see how far others had to go in order for us to get where we are today. Literally and figuratively, generations of people have triumphed and toiled through adversity time and time again throughout history, and that collective work, in one way or another, has made way for you. Therefore, our lives can be viewed as “torches” that have been carried to this point not to remain here, but to be taken further. On this show, Del Walmsley reminds all of his listeners of their duty to themselves to live louder, bolder and more vibrant lives, so that their “torch” may burn magnificently when it is passed to the generations to come.

(February 18, 2015) The Del Walmsley Radio Show: Grade A Debt For The Grade A Student

If you ever sat through a college-prep lecture in high school, you might have heard the speaker mention that it would substantially increase your chances of attaining a well-paying job. Maybe so. But, never did you here them say, “oh and one other thing, you’ll have to dish out anywhere from 40 to $100,000 to pay for it, the resulting debt will gut your credit score, so you’ll have no purchasing power, and a fraction of the job opportunities we just mentioned will actually exist.” No, that would have been a different lecture entirely. Well, Del’s prep class is now in session, the rose colored glasses are off and today’s college education gets the evaluation it deserves.

(February 17, 2015) The Del Walmsley Radio Show: Pushing A Boulder Up A Hill, Only To Watch It Roll Down The Other Side

For many Americans, the most scrutinized things in their lives are their income, their savings and their debt. Then, with the advent of a recession, these are the very arenas that are affected the most; income stagnates or it falls, savings get depleted and debt goes up. So, is it really that helpful for the PEW Charitable Trusts to report these very items as the most important issues to be tackled by U.S. families today? We’d say… no. So, where do you go from here? Well, if it is not if another recession is coming, but when, then maybe the question you should be asking yourself is if your income and savings plans will pan out, instead of asking when. This podcast is here to introduce you to a new element of the equation – investments that pay you and shield you from a life spent pushing a boulder over a hill.
