“Once you have satisfied your basic sustenance needs—food, water, health, and a roof over your head—poverty has more to do with your head than your wallet.” - John Hope Bryant

In John Hope Bryant's insightful new book The Memo: Five Rules for Your Economic Liberation, he makes bold claim: he supermajority of people who live in poverty, whom Bryant calls the invisible class, as well as millions in the struggling middle class, haven’t gotten “the memo”—until now. Bryant gives readers tools for empowerment by covering everything from achieving basic financial literacy to investing in positive relationships and approaching wealth with a completely new attitude.

Bryant is the founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of Operation HOPE, Inc. the largest not- for-profit and best-in-class provider of financial literacy, financial inclusion and economic empowerment tools and services in the United States for youth and adults; chairman and chief executive officer of Bryant Group Ventures and The Promise Homes Company, the largest for-profit minority-controlled owners of institutional-quality, single-family residential rental homes in the U.S., and co-founder of Global Dignity.

With money being one of the most constrained resources for individuals in today's world, budgeting can be a simple, yet powerful tool to save money fast.

Mitchell Walker is the creator and author of the PouchPlan Budget system. After spending 15 years as a CFO of a Berkshire Hathaway company, 11 years as a partner in a public tax practice, owning multiple businesses, serving as CFO of a college and as County Commissioner and City Councilman, Mitchell reveals why the personal side of money is often the most neglected but most important thing to get right. Mitchell was deep in debt and his finances were a mess when the love of his life came on the scene. They started a blended family with 5 children ages 5 to 17 and a lot more love than money. He had to figure out new ways to make money work for him and fast. How he discovered a new approach to personal budgeting will inform and entertain your audience. Mitchell likes to say that they went from “Ouch to Pouch.” He enjoys sharing how getting money right makes life easier, much easier; getting it wrong just makes life harder.

With over 1,000 pages of new tax law, decoding what this means for individuals, retirees, and businesses will be a difficult task.

On today’s show we talked with tax attorney and author Rebecca Walser. She gave us valuable commentary into the new tax bill, effective 2018 and her new book Wealth Unbroken. 

Tax attorney and Certified Financial Planner Rebecca Walser will release her book Wealth Unbroken - Growing Wealth Uninterrupted by Market Crashes, Taxes, or Even Death in January 2018. Known from her weekly “Smart Money Mondays” segment on the nationally syndicated “Daytime” television show seen in over 70 markets, she has also been featured in US News & World Report, Bloomberg Business, New York Post, New York Daily News, Yahoo Finance, ABC News, NBC News, CBS News, FOX News, CW, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, LA Daily News, International Business Times, Investing Daily, Street Insider, and numerous other media outlets.

According to Rebecca Walser, tax attorney and financial strategist, conventional wealth building wisdom has been leading Americans astray for 40 years. In Wealth Unbroken, Rebecca explains how and why following the popular beliefs about long-term wealth building are keeping 96 out of 100 Americans from financial success in their retirement.
