The Houston Midtown Chapter of The Society for Financial Awareness Presents MONEY MATTERS with Christopher Hensley

"You can’t have a win/win scenario in poker because of the way the game is designed. In economic and game theory we call this a zero-sum game."
- Sarah Nadav

That’s what we are looking at with the COVID-19 response. Countries are putting people on lockdown because the virus either spreads or it doesn’t. And if it spreads, everyone loses- not just the people who get sick. One person’s gain (freedom) is another person’s loss (safety).

We are no longer talking about health in the context of the elderly or immunocompromised. We’re talking about society as a whole, because the longer this drags on- the worse it is for economies and society at large.
What are you going to do now?

Senior Strategist, Behavioral Economist, World Economic Forum Expert Network, Linkedin Top Voice  That plays to our deepest fears as well as opening the door to the most amazing opportunities. We won't go back to the way things were, the "new normal" is temporary, I'm obsessed with helping prepare for the next era.

"The near-nationwide lockdown intended to slow the spread of COVID-19 has created “a perfect macroeconomic storm” that’s put the U.S. on track for a depression worse even than the Great Depression — it is therefore “idiotic exuberance” to invest in the market now"
-Boston University economics professor Laurence Kotlikoff in an interview with ThinkAdvisor.

Kotlikoff, who in 2014 was named by The Economist one of the world’s 25 most influential economists, floats a plan for reopening the U.S. economy: Director of the Fiscal Analysis Center, Kotlikoff served on President Ronald Reagan’s Council of Economic Advisors and as a consultant to the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the U.S. Education Department and the U.S. Labor Department, among other organizations and governments.

A former FBI agent shares his simple but powerful toolkit for assessing who you can trust - and who you can't. We also talked about how to transition from face to face interactions to the new online meeting during Covid-19 quarantine.

Predicting the behavior of others is an urgent need for anyone whose work involves relationships with others, whether it's leading an organization, collaborating with a teammate, or closing a sale. But predictability is not as simple as good and evil, or truth and fiction. Allies might make a promise with every intention of keeping it, not realizing that they will be unable to do so due to some personal shortcoming. And those seeking to thwart your endeavor may not realize how reliable their malevolent tells have become.

After two decades as a behavior analyst in the FBI, Robin Dreeke knows a thing or two about sizing people up. He's navigated complex situations that range from handling Russian spies to navigating the internal politics at the Bureau. Through that experience, he was forced to develop a knack for reading people - their intentions, their capabilities, their desires and their fears.

At this point many of us are restless, anxious and bored. We might be going a little stir crazy. We have that feeling like we want to go outside and play, go to the gym or we might even miss going into the office. What can we do about it? How important is it to stay active right now?  We were joined today by IBJJF World Champion, Professor Pablo Silva and former linebacker for the Houston Texans and Founder of both the Athletic Room and the Regen Room, Kailee Wong.

Pablo started his jiu jitsu journey at the age of 14 in his small hometown Mariana, Minas Gerais, Brazil. At age 16, Pablo made the difficult decision of leaving his hometown and his family to train BJJ full time at the Gracie Barra HQ in Belo Horizonte. It was then that Pablo set his goal of becoming a Black Belt World Champion. In 2009, Pablo received his black belt and just one year later achieved his goal of winning the IBJJF World Championship at the Black Belt Adult level. Pablo has won all the major tournaments in the sport of jiu jitsu as a black belt.

Pablo is the only IBJJF Adult Black Belt World Champion living and teaching in Texas. The curriculum at Pablo Silva BJJ is geared toward sport jiu jitsu and stems from Pablo’s own competition experiences. Pablo is a firm believer that jiu jitsu can change people’s lives for the better. Whether it’s self-esteem, health, mental, or emotional issues, he believes that jiu jitsu can help everyone in one way or another. Pablo strives to make a positive impact on this world by sharing his love for jiu jitsu with his students.

Acceptance of the status quo is not in Kailee Wong’s DNA. Kailee spent nine seasons as an NFL linebacker for the Houston Texans and Minnesota Vikings’ organizations, but it was his six years at a desk in corporate America that caused the most harm to his body.

Ignited by an obvious need and grounded in his passion for business, Kailee founded the Athletic Room to ensure everyone can get back to the activities and hobbies they love without the unnecessary pain.

How do customers want your brand to navigate the political landscape? Christine Wise discusses the surprising research findings from Seattle agency DNA's deep dive into when and why corporate political advocacy works... and when it doesn't.

 

We were joined today by Christine Wise, the agency's Chief Strategy Officer to talk about Foresight 2020 - a national representative study on the attitudes and opinions of 2,000 Americans with regard to brands and political stances. 

 

Foresight 2020 research shows that the overwhelming majority of consumers agree on the importance of many core values and see a number of these shared values as “under threat” today. When considering the unprecedented political divisiveness that is so pervasive today, it is no surprise people are hoping for brands to build common ground.
 
“As we look ahead to what is certain to be a highly-charged political climate in 2020, we saw an opportunity to use data and insights to help marketers and brands create winning strategies for  the year ahead,” explained Alan Brown, CEO and co-founder of DNA. “Just as political candidates are courting independent votes, brands can broaden their relevance to more people by championing common ground than by firmly planting a flag on the side of any single issue or candidate. Staying authentic and doubling down on important shared values may be the best way for brands to add value and bring people together in today’s landmine filled political landscape.”
 
For starters, our political system and political division is the number one issue facing the country when looking at the combination of what is both important and polarizing.
  
As people look ahead to 2020, most anticipate things will continue to get worse with only 8% of people disagreeing with the statement that “the election year will further divide and polarize our country.”
 
“Although there are specific groups of people that will immediately applaud and reward a brand for taking a strong political or societal stance,” explains Christine Wise, Chief Strategy Officer at DNA and leader of the study, “many have a degree of skepticism about  brand activism with 53% agreeing that ‘Too many brands use societal issues as a marketing ploy to sell their product/service.’”
 
Cultivating unity is the number one thing on a list of what people want from brands with 54% agreeing “Brands should help build common ground and avoid taking sides.”
 
According to the survey, DNA sees  an opportunity for brands to be the change people want to see by protecting and projecting shared values especially those that are viewed as most important and under threat today. These values include privacy, preserving the environment, safety, fairness, open-mindedness, independence, compassion, and honesty.
 
Noted Ms. Wise, “We see rich and fertile ground for brands to advocate around our shared values. DNA has analyzed a large range of values and can guide brands to those that are most important and also seen as most under threat in 2020 based on a wide range of factors. Generation cohorts, where people live, and political affiliation reveal both differences and highlight commonalities that provide a framework for how brands can succeed and drive relevance in 2020.”
 
Personal Issues Remain More Pressing than Political Issues
As concerning as the state of politics is for many, only 13% of Americans strongly agree that they’re “losing sleep about what is happening now and what lies ahead in 2020.”  This is in part because personal problems are more pressing and political fatigue has already set in.
 
 
Improving physical health and improving personal finances top the list of personal priorities  for 2020 across all generations. Younger generations (Gen Z and Millennials) differ from older generations with additional importance placed on advancing their job/career, improving their personal relationships, trying new things, maintaining a sense of balance, and improving their mental health.
 
In addition, DNA found that brands should consider how their employees feel - not just what their customers feel - about political advocacy. With a tight talent pool, keeping the entire enterprise in mind is vital for companies as 37% of Americans overall would be proud to be employed by a company that publicly advocated in support of causes or issues I care about.
 
Research methodology
The Foresight for 2020 project is a nationally representative quantitative study of 2,000 Americans, ages 18+. The quantitative survey was fielded in August 2019.  The study examines the current state of American sentiment, the values we hold most dear and those we feel are under threat today, how we perceive the issues of the day, and what we see as the role/responsibility of brands during this unique moment in time. The survey has a margin of error of 2% at a 95% confidence level.  In addition to the quantitative study, Foresight 2020 also includes:
·      Social data intelligence analysis of online conversations leveraging NetBase platform
·      Analysis of political polling and ongoing tracking of US consumer sentiment
·      Case study examples of the intersection of brands and issue-based politics
·      Qualitative interviews with academics and leaders in brand safety

Probability-based or safety-first? What trade-offs exist between these two dramatically different philosophies for retirement income planning? Wade Pfau discusses his new book - Safety-First Retirement Planning: An Integrated Approach for a Worry-Free Retirement.

 

We were joined today by bestselling author Wade D. Pfau, Ph.D., CFA, RICP.

Dr. Pfau is the director of the Retirement Income Certified Professional designation and a Professor of Retirement Income at The American College of Financial Services in King of Prussia, PA. As well, he is a Principal and Director for McLean Asset Management. He holds a doctorate in economics from Princeton University and publishes frequently in a wide variety of academic and practitioner research journals on topics related to retirement income. He hosts the Retirement Researcher website, and is a contributor to Forbes, Advisor Perspectives, Journal of Financial Planning, and an Expert Panelist for the Wall Street Journal. He is the author of the books, Safety-First Retirement Planning: An Integrated Approach for a Worry-Free Retirement, How Much Can I Spend in Retirement? A Guide to Investment-Based Retirement Income Strategies, and Reverse Mortgages: How to Use Reverse Mortgages to Secure Your Retirement.

 

About Safety-First Retirement Income Planning

To learn two fundamentally different philosophies for retirement income planning, which I call probability-based and safety-first, diverge on the critical issue of where a retirement plan is best served: in the risk/reward trade-offs of a diversified and aggressive investment portfolio that relies primarily on the stock market, or in the contractual protections of insurance products that integrate the power of risk pooling and actuarial science alongside investments. The probability-based approach is generally better understood by the public. It advocates using an aggressive investment portfolio with a large allocation to stocks to meet retirement goals. My earlier book How Much Can I Spend in Retirement? A Guide to Investment-Based Retirement Strategies provides an extensive investigation of probability-based approaches. But this investments-only attitude is not the optimal way to build a retirement income plan. There are pitfalls in retirement that we are less familiar with during the accumulation years. The nature of risk changes. Longevity risk is the possibility of living longer than planned, which could mean not having resources to maintain the retiree’s standard of living. And once retirement distributions begin, market downturns in the early years can disproportionately harm retirement sustainability. This is sequence-of-returns risk, and it acts to amplify the impacts of market volatility in retirement. Traditional wealth management is not equipped to handle these new risks in a fulfilling way. More assets are required to cover spending goals over a possibly costly retirement triggered by a long life and poor market returns. And yet, there is no assurance that assets will be sufficient. For retirees who are worried about outliving their wealth, probability-based strategies can become excessively conservative and stressful.This book focuses on the other option: safety-first retirement planning. Safety-first advocates support a more bifurcated approach to building retirement income plans that integrates insurance with investments, providing lifetime income protections to cover spending. With risk pooling through insurance, retirees effectively pay an insurance premium that will provide a benefit to support spending in otherwise costly retirements that could deplete an unprotected investment portfolio. Insurance companies can pool sequence and longevity risks across a large base of retirees, much like a traditional defined-benefit company pension plan or Social Security, allowing for retirement spending that is more closely aligned with averages. When bonds are replaced with insurance-based risk pooling assets, retirees can improve the odds of meeting their spending goals while also supporting more legacy at the end of life, especially in the event of a longer-than-average retirement. We walk through this thought process and logic in steps, investigating three basic ways to fund a retirement spending goal: with bonds, with a diversified investment portfolio, and with risk pooling through annuities and life insurance. We consider the potential role for different types of annuities including simple income annuities, variable annuities, and fixed index annuities. I explain how different annuities work and how readers can evaluate them. We also examine the potential for whole life insurance to contribute to a retirement income plan. When we properly consider the range of risks introduced after retirement, I conclude that the integrated strategies preferred by safety-first advocates support more efficient retirement outcomes. Safety-first retirement planning helps to meet financial goals with less worry. This book explains how to evaluate different insurance options and implement these solutions into an integrated retirement plan.

When preparing for standardized tests, most students only study content and strategy. But teacher and mindfulness expert Logan Thompson claims that those are just the tip of the iceberg.

Beyond the Content shows readers how to use mindfulness to identify and cope with hindering thoughts and emotions--what author Logan Thompson calls "passengers."

Thompson says that while mindfulness is already practiced in businesses, colleges, and professional sports to optimize performance, it's long overdue in test prep.

After earning his MBA from Vanderbilt University, Thompson lived at the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, MA, for two and a half years, spending several months in silent mindfulness retreats. He also completed a two-year mindfulness teacher-training program by Inward Bound Mindfulness Education. Thompson holds a master's of education in human development and psychology from Harvard University and is an adjunct psychology professor. He has spend the past several years teaching both mindfulness and test prep for Manhattan Prep.

Did you lose your car in the flood waters that Imelda brought to the Gulf Coast area? Without reliable transportation to get you to work or take the kids to school how do you start getting back on track? Are you worried that based on your credit history you might get price gouged or pay an unreasonably high interest rate? Many people are not aware of a nonprofit organization that can help get you back on the road. We already have solutions in place as part of the Rebuild Texas Fund partnership.

Have you ever wondered what the best way to differentiate yourself is? How can you rise about the competition and all the noise in today's crowded world?

In Think and Grow Rich - Success and Something Greater, authors Sharon Lechter and Greg Reid once again join forces with the Napoleon Hill Foundation including never before published original content from Napoleon Hill. In today's world of instant news and social media, businesses, leaders and influencers must find a way to differentiate themselves from all their competition and engage people in their missions. They need to rise above all the noise. They can do this by defining their Secret Sauce or Magic Key. Reid and Lechter followed the proven path of Hill and sought out multi-millionaires and asked them to share the Magic Keys to their success and legacy. While their individual stories differ significantly...they all share a devotion to their mission...to their secret sauce...their Magic Key...their legacy.

John Assaraf - Mastery of Thought
John Ashworth - Find the Gap in the Marketplace
Michael Houlihan and Bonnie Harvey - Ask the Right Questions
Rita Davenport - Build Your People

These are just a few of the people who share their stories in Think and Grow Rich - Success and Something Greater. Their stories are not just motivational...they are real...they are honest...they take the reader on their personal journeys. The readers will not just relate to the individuals highlighted in the book they will begin looking for how they can adopt their magic keys into their own journeys. Before reaching the last page, the reader will already be more self-confident, more energized, more focused, ready to ask the right questions and most importantly ready to take action and realize their own success, wealth and achievement, and in doing so, define and create their legacy.

Does your company throw around new ideas until one sounds just good enough to execute and scale to everyone?

In Start at the End, technology executive and behavioral scientist Matt Wallaert argues that the purpose of everything is behavior change. By starting with outcomes instead of processes, the most effective companies understand what people want to do and why they aren't already doing it, then build products and services to bridge the gap.

Wallaert is a behavioral psychologist who has led product design at organizations ranging from startups like Clover Health to industry leaders such as Microsoft. Whether dissecting the success behind Uber's ridesharing service or Flamin' Hot Cheetos, he underscores with clarity and humor how this approach can improve the way we work and live.

Are you disillusioned with politics influencing corporations you purchase goods from?

Goods Unite Us is a company designed to empower consumers by putting a "Goods Score" on companies to show much they are influenced by political donations. Each company’s Goods Score is calculated on a scale of -100 to +100. The higher the score, the more likely that purchases from the company or brand will lead to meaningful campaign finance reform.

Goods Unite Us was started by Abigail Wuest, who is a government attorney and former local politician. Abigail grew up in a very politically active family, and she cares deeply about fair and transparent elections. She has a B.A. from St. Olaf College and a J.D. from Vermont Law School. Abigail’s career has spanned numerous levels of the government, including at the local, state and federal levels. She’s worked as a White House intern, as an intern at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, in private law practice, and held elected office as a Dane County Board supervisor.

Are you a member of Gen X who does not feel that you will be prepared to retire at age 75? If so, you are not alone.

Megan Gorman is the founder of Chequers Financial Management, and believes that Gen Xers have unique challenges to face when it comes to retiring on time in a financially secure manner. If you are a Gen Xer, you won't want to miss Megan's invaluable tips on how to stay on top of saving for retirement.

Megan Gorman has been coloring outside the lines from an early age and continues to do so today. The Founding Partner of Chequers Financial Management, she’s a woman owner of a business in an industry that doesn’t typically see many women in the top leadership role. Add to that the fact that Chequers is a boutique high net worth tax and financial planning firm – firmly committed to ensuring that tax strategy serves as the cornerstone of the financial planning process (also unusual in the industry.) In many cases, Chequers clients have come to the firm because of its reputation for strategy and premier client service. Her expertise has seen her quoted in publications from the Wall Street Journal to The Washington Post to CNN Money.

The chief scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) turns a critical eye toward such practices as telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition and psychokinesis. Are such powers really possible? Science says yes.

According to noted scientist and bestselling author of The Conscious Universe, Dean Radin, magic is a natural aspect of reality, and each of us can tap into this power with diligent practice.

But wait, aren't things like ESP and telepathy just wishful thinking and flights of the imagination? Not according to the author, who worked on the US government's top secret psychic espionage program known as Stargate. Radin has spent the last forty years conducting controlled experiments that demonstrate that thoughts are things, that we can sense others' emotions and intentions from a distance, that intuition is more powerful than we thought, and that we can tap into the power of intention (think The Secret, only on a more realistic and scientific level). These dormant powers can help us to lead more interesting and fulfilling lives. 

DEAN RADIN, Ph.D., is Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) and Distinguished Professor at the California Institute of Integral Studies. For nearly four decades he has been engaged in consciousness research. Before joining the research staff at IONS in 2001, he held appointments at AT&T Bell Laboratories, Princeton University, and several Silicon Valley think tanks, including SRI International, where he worked on a classified program investigating psychic phenomena for the U.S. government.

Arturo Perez is the current owner of his own brokerage firm, and is a top expert of Medicare knowledge in the Houston area.

Medicare is extremely complex and is not intuitive at all.

Women are more likely than men to feel that they lack investment knowledge. This can discourage them from taking even basic steps in ensuring their long-term financial security. 

For this reason, many women face a real risk of being financially under-prepared for retirement. Being poor is not anyone’s idea of a good time. Sad statistic: women are 80% more likely to be in poverty at retirement compared to a man.

However, the good news is that with some guidance women are very well placed to grow their wealth and become financially empowered. In fact, studies indicate that there are actually some qualities that make women better investors. For example, women often trade less often than men because they have a longer term outlook. These qualities make women well-suited to become successful financially.

Why is it that some artists are wildly successful, while others just barely squeak by?

It may seem like an unfathomable mystery, how some are earning six figures while other, more talented artists, are struggling. Maria Brophy has dedicated 20 years of her life to researching the specific strategies that successful artists follow. After applying these strategies to her husband Drew Brophy's career, Maria grew his art sales to multiple six-figures yearly. 

In ART MONEY SUCCESS, Maria tells personal stories of her own business deals, successes and failures, while sharing non-conventional wisdom that will help artists boost their sales.

Maria used to work in the insurance industry, but has since devoted her time to selling her husband's artwork. After thousands of hours of study, research and hands-on-experience, she became an expert on art licensing, deal making, and selling art.

It's often said that the chairman of the Fed is the second most powerful person in the world, next only to the president of the United States. Some say the chairman is even more powerful.

When Ben Bernanke publicly stated on September 8, 2013, the Fed's intent to continue its policy of quantitative easing, global markets instantly reversed direction from a worrying downward spiral to an exuberant upward surge. Even POTUS can't do that. Dr. Robert R. Johnson's Invest with the Fed takes the simple position that correct interpretation of Federal Reserve policy actions leads to better investing decisions. To this end, they present strategies that will help you design a portfolio that takes Fed policy into account.

Dr. Johnson is the author of multiple books and scholarly articles on portfolio management, asset valuation, wealth management, and monetary policy. He currently serves as Professor of Finance in Creighton University's Heider College of Business and on the board of RS Investment Management. From 1996 to 2011 he held a number of senior executive positions at CFA Institute and has extensive experience with credentialing programs, ethical and professional codes of conduct, and global business expansion. He is co-author of the books Strategic Value Investing, The Tools and Techniques of Investment Planning, and Investment Banking for Dummies. He is also coauthor of the forthcoming book Investing by Fed, which is scheduled to be published in December of 2014.

Can money be a symbolic representation of deeper issues underlying everyday relationships?

According to Kira Nurieli, a dedicated mediation and conflict resolution expert, sometimes we have to dig deeper to find the true meaning behind the crises that plague family relationships, friendships, and the like. With money as a central theme in many of these crises, it is often that conscious financial planning can assuage the problems that subsequently arise in these cases.

Kira is an alumni of Columbia University and has 10+ years of experience in mediation. Her experience and skills come from her life as a parent, and she offers workshops, discussion groups, skills-training, and coaching services.

Are you going through financial hardship in life? If so, you could be prey to predatory payday loan lenders in the state of Texas.

To combat this issue, Zara Mohidin works with Fig Loans to offer products that charge lower rates for people that are struggling financially.

Zara Mohidin is the head of strategy and business development at Fig Loans, where she works with everyday people to help lift them out of debt through efficient payday loans.

House of Trump, House of Putin offers the first comprehensive investigation into the decades-long relationship among Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, and the Russian Mafia that ultimately helped win Trump the White House.

Our guest today was Craig Unger. Craig Unger is the New York Times bestselling author of House of Trump, House of Putin; House of Bush, House of Saud, and other books. The former editor in chief of Boston Magazine, he has written for New York Magazine, The New Yorker, Esquire, among many other publications, and has been a longtime contributing editor of Vanity Fair magazine. A graduate of Harvard University, he has appeared as an analyst on dozens of broadcast outlets. He lives in New York City.

It is a chilling story that begins in the 1970s, when Trump made his first splash in the booming, money-drenched world of New York real estate, and ends with Trump's inauguration as president of the United States. That moment was the culmination of Vladimir Putin's long mission to undermine Western democracy, a mission that he and his hand-selected group of oligarchs and Mafia kingpins had ensnared Trump in, starting more than 20 years ago with the massive bailout of a string of sensational Trump hotel and casino failures in Atlantic City. This book confirms the most incredible American paranoias about Russian malevolence.

How much do you pay in Flood Insurance?

The average homeowner can pay over $100 a month. Which of course is $1200 a year. On a thirty-year loan, that equates to $36,000. That's a lot of money!

Wouldn't it be great if you could get your Flood Insurance rate reduced?

Better yet, what if you didn't have to pay for ANY Flood Insurance?

In his book, Flood Money, author Brad Hubbard shares how he has saved residential clients hundreds of thousands of dollars by legally getting them out of a flood zone. He has saved his commercial clients an excess of a million dollars! Now, he is showing the world exactly how he does it.

This book is a step-by-step guide to fighting FEMA and other federal and state organizations by equipping you with the tools and knowledge needed to find out your true Flood Zone.

The banks have told us that we need to pay flood insurance. The problem is that for many people, that decision was made decades ago using rudimentary tools and practices. Brad brings his Engineering background into play and, using modern methods and good old-fashioned common sense, can show you how to find out if you're paying tens of thousands of dollars that you don't have to.

After reading this book and following these steps, a good question for you might be, "What are you going to spend your money on now that you don't have to pay for Flood Insurance?"

Don’t plan to die? Bad news – humans have a 100% mortality rate. Yet only 30% of us make end-of-life plans: wills or trusts, advance medical directives and pre-need funeral planning. That leaves 70% of us unprepared and devastated, not if but when a death occurs.

Listen to Gail Rubin on why we avoid the topic of death and what we can do to improve end-of-life planning rates so everyone can have a good goodbye. Gail Rubin is a pioneering Certified Thanatologist – a death educator who uses humor and funny films to help teach about serious subjects. She was one of the first people to hold a Death Café in the United States. Known as The Doyenne of Death, she’s the author of A GOOD GOODBYE: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don’t Plan to Die.

What if the real secret to greater productivity, happiness and success is a habit that is thousands of years old?

Productivity has become an international obsession. We celebrate a work culture where people boast of long working hours, their extreme schedules and how little they sleep. A constant stream of emails, texts, tweets and more keeps us connected every minute and we rarely put our phones down. Every moment needs to be maximized and no time can be wasted.
And yet most of us also feel something is wrong. All of these attempts at optimizing business and life aren’t really making us happier. Ironically, it might not be making us all that productive either. In this groundbreaking book, noted entrepreneur and money manager Aaron Edelheit breaks down the myths around productivity and offers a startlingly simple solution: the Sabbath.

Aaron M. Edelheit is the Chief Strategy Officer of FLO Technologies. Since selling his company, The American Home in 2015, Aaron founded Mindset Capital, a private investment firm. Aaron has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, CNBC, Bloomberg, and the New York Times and has given lectures on entrepreneurship and investments all over the U.S., Canada and South Africa. Aaron serves on the board of the Moishe House Foundation and is a Partner of Social Venture Partners in Santa Barbara working on homelessness.

The chief scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) turns a critical eye toward such practices as telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition and psychokinesis. Are such powers really possible? Science says yes.

According to noted scientist and bestselling author of The Conscious Universe, Dean Radin, magic is a natural aspect of reality, and each of us can tap into this power with diligent practice.

But wait, aren't things like ESP and telepathy just wishful thinking and flights of the imagination? Not according to the author, who worked on the US government's top secret psychic espionage program known as Stargate. Radin has spent the last forty years conducting controlled experiments that demonstrate that thoughts are things, that we can sense others' emotions and intentions from a distance, that intuition is more powerful than we thought, and that we can tap into the power of intention (think The Secret, only on a more realistic and scientific level). These dormant powers can help us to lead more interesting and fulfilling lives. 

Dean Radin, PhD, is Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences and Associated Distinguished Professor of Integral and Transpersonal Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies. He earned an MS in electrical engineering and a PhD in psychology from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Before joining the research staff at IONS in 2001, he held appointments at AT&T Bell Labs, Princeton University, University of Edinburgh, and SRI International. He is author or coauthor of hundreds of technical and popular articles, four dozen book chapters, and four popular books: The Conscious Universe (1997), Entangled Minds (2006), Supernormal(2013), and Real Magic (2018).

The first insider account straight from Trump University, by one of its principal instructors.

While the President of the United States seems to be able to shock with each new tweet, and no depth seems too low for him to sink to, we've yet to hear from someone who was at the heart of one of his signature outrages--Trump University, the infamous and elaborate scheme to con hundreds of earnest citizens out of their hard-earned dollars.

Until now.

Stephen Gilpin is a real estate guy. His forte is buying distressed properties and flipping them; he's done a lot of that, in his day, in Florida and elsewhere. In the go-go world of the 1990s, he came to New York City from Pittston, PA., with nothing other than his looks, and after a brief and successful stint as a male model, managed to work his way into the thick of the brutal world of New York real estate. This was where the real money was, he correctly reasoned--where he'd meet men and women possessed of character, energy―and lots of cash.

But this is not a "Wolf of Wall Street" story. Gilpin quickly became an expert in leveraging properties, and he saw this as a way to rescue declining neighborhoods―and and get rich in the process. He wanted to share his knowledge with others, and when he was asked to join Trump University's Trump Entrepreneur Initiative as a "Master Real Estate Coach," to teach in the shadow of a man whom he then greatly admired, he jumped at the chance. Little did he know that he would become an unwilling participant in one of the largest con games in American history.

Who doesn’t want to know how to be their best when it matters most? To be more creative, more contented, more consumed? To soar and not to sink? As the deeds of these athletes prove, if we can master flow, there are no limits to what we can accomplish.

In this groundbreaking book, New York Times–bestselling author Steven Kotler decodes the mystery of ultimate human performance. Drawing on over a decade of research and first-hand reporting with dozens of top action and adventure sports athletes like big wave legend Laird Hamilton, big mountain snowboarder Jeremy Jones, and skateboarding pioneer Danny Way, Kotler explores the frontier science of “flow,” an optimal state of consciousness in which we perform and feel our best.

 

Steven’s work have been translated into over 40 languages and appeared in over 100 publications, including The New York Times, Atlantic Monthly, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Wired and TIME. He also appears frequently on television and radio, and lectures widely on human performance, disruptive technology and radical innovation. He is also the cofounder of Creating Equilibrium, a conference/concert/innovation accelerator focused on solving critical environmental challenges, and, alongside his wife, author Joy Nicholson, Steven is the cofounder of Rancho de Chihuahua, a hospice care/special needs care dog sanctuary in the mountains of Northern New Mexico.

Our ego, and its accompanying sense of nagging self-doubt as we work to be bigger, better, smarter, and more in control, is one affliction we all share. And while our ego claims to have our best interests at heart, in its never-ending pursuit of attention and power, it sabotages the very goals it sets to achieve.

In Advice Not Given, renowned psychiatrist and author Dr. Mark Epstein reveals how Buddhism and Western psychotherapy, two traditions that developed in entirely different times and places and, until recently, had nothing to do with each other, both identify the ego as the limiting factor in our well-being, and both come to the same conclusion: When we give the ego free reign, we suffer; but when it learns to let go, we are free. 

Mark Epstein, M.D. is a psychiatrist in private practice in New York City and the author of a number of books about the interface of Buddhism and psychotherapy, including Thoughts without a Thinker, Going to Pieces without Falling Apart, Going on Being, Open to Desire and Psychotherapy without the Self. His newest work, The Trauma of Everyday Life, will be published in August of 2013 by Penguin Press. He received his undergraduate and medical degrees from Harvard University and is currently Clinical Assistant Professor in the Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis at New York University.

Think you know everything about your husband or wife? There’s a 40 percent chance you don’t even know how much they make. And there’s more than a 5 percent chance they’re hiding money from you.

On this week show we spoke with author John Stirling Kinross about his new book How to Bullet Proof Your Marriage or How Your Husband Screws You In Divorce. This book is a guide to financial equality in a marriage and teaches women how to be confident in merging finances with her spouse, as well as, navigating those joint finances in a responsible and educated way.

John Stirling Kinross is not only an accomplished author, he’s the financial consultant that women, married or single, need on their side. With his extensive experience as a Forensic Accountant, and 20 years of testifying in divorce court under his belt, John Stirling Kinross is a great resource for helping women become financially proactive.

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.

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.

How much can you spend in retirement? Naturally, this is an essential question for those approaching this important life transition. Essentially, if you wish to retire one day, you are increasingly responsible for figuring out how to save during your working years and convert your savings into sustainable income for an ever-lengthening number of retirement years. The nature of risk also changes in retirement, as the lifestyle of retirees become more vulnerable to the impacts of market volatility, unknown longevity, and spending shocks. Retirees have one opportunity to build a successful plan. It is not an easy task, but it is manageable.

On today’s show we talked with Author Dr. Wade Pfau about his new book How to Spend Money Wisely in Retirement. 

Dr. Wade D. Pfau, CFA®, is a Professor of Retirement Income in the PhD in Financial and Retirement Planning program at The American College of Financial Services. He is also a contributor to the The College’s Retirement Income Certified Professional® (RICP®) designation program curriculum.

Dr. Pfau is a co-editor of the Journal of Personal Finance. He has spoken at the national conferences of organizations for financial professionals such as the CFA Institute, FPA, NAPFA, AICPA-PFP, and AFS. He also publishes frequently in a wide variety of academic and practitioner research journals. He hosts the Retirement Researcher blog, and is a monthly columnist for Advisor Perspectives, a RetireMentor for MarketWatch, a contributor to Forbes, and an Expert Panelist for The Wall Street Journal. His research has been discussed in outlets that include print editions of The EconomistThe New York TimesThe Wall Street Journal, and Money Magazine.

Money has the power to destroy, but it can also be an incredibly effective tool for social change. Impact investing – the support of social and environmental projects with a financial return – has become a hot topic on the global stage; poised to eclipse traditional aid by ten times in the next decade. And it has the potential to completely restructure the global economy, making social and environmental responsibility integral to how we move money through society, rather than an afterthought.

In her book REAL IMPACT: The New Economics of Social Change, Morgan Simon argues that impact investing will do a lot of good – if we can get it right. An impact investor with 17 years of experience who has influenced over $150 billion from endowments, families, and foundations – who also manages funds for members of the seventh wealthiest family in America – Simon sees warning signs that impact investment is at a crucial turning point. As investors focus on growth and acceptance, it’s actually in danger of replicating the same mistakes of traditional charity and finance that impact investment was designed to correct. And without the right guiding principles, it has the potential to do more harm than good

On today’s show we talked with Author Morgan Simon about her book Real Impact - The New Economics of Social Change. 

Morgan Simon is a widely recognized leader in impact investment who builds bridges between finance and social justice. Over the past seventeen years, she has influenced over $150 billion from high-net-worth individuals, foundations, and endowments. She supports Pi Investments and the Libra Foundation, and is also co- founder and chair of the nonprofit Transform Finance.

It’s not a revelation to learn that any comedian offstage is a shy weirdo.  What’s utterly revealing and totally fantastic about this film is seeing Gilbert Gottfried's marriage, which is a model of affection and good sense in the face of eccentricity.  Every couple should see this. Every marriage should be more like his.  This is the rare film where a look at a performer’s private life is not what you expect at all, and also weirdly inspiring.  I loved this. Ira Glass

Legendary comedian Gilbert Gottfried has had quite the career. Rocketing to fame in the 1980s, he was thrust into the public consciousness almost immediately thanks to his brash personality, unique worldview, and off-kilter comic timing. Now, foul-mouthed and unapologetic after decades of flying solo in both his work and in his personal life, Gilbert has shockingly reinvented himself…as a family man. 

Director Neil Berkeley’s Gilbert reveals an unexpected side to the iconic comedian. The film peeks behind the larger-than-life persona at a more personal story about growing up in Brooklyn and becoming a husband and father late in life. Gottfried’s singular outlook on life and his ability to bring humor to even the darkest situations has, at times, gotten him into trouble. Still he soldiers on, an expert craftsman at bringing his audience to the edge (and sometimes pushing them over). Gilbert strips the comedic character away to reveal the man behind it. Berkeley allows the audience an intimate — even vulnerable — view of Gottfried out of character.

On today’s show we talked with Director Neil Berkeley about his upcoming documentary Gilbert which will be showing on November 8th in Houston at The Alamo Drafthouse. 

 

Neil Berkeley, Producer/ Director/ Writer

Neil Berkeley is an Emmy-nominated filmmaker and entrepreneur. His first feature film, Beauty Is Embarrassing, premiered at SXSW in 2012 and chronicles the life and times of the inspiring artist Wayne White. The film won several Best Documentary awards and was featured in PBS’ Independent Lens in January of 2013. His second feature, Harmontown, premiered at SXSW in 2014 and follows self-destructive TV writer Dan Harmon on an emotional, cross-country journey of self-discovery.  He is currently in production on his fourth feature documentary, currently titled Death Is a Door. The film is the story of how American rock music became a lifestyle for many young Cubans in the late ’80s. The decisions they made led to rampant police abuse combined with oppression from the government and eventually drove several hundred of them to self-inject with HIV. 

 

Berkeley is also a successful commercial and promo director and has worked with brands such as Mercedes-Benz, Cadillac and Kraft Foods. He is the owner of BRKLY, a design based production company focused on developing marketing campaigns for network and cable television. The company has helped launch some of TV’s most popular shows, including Brother vs. Brother, Scandal, Project Runway, Top Chef and many more.

CentSai, an online financial wellness community, and RIKAI Labs, China’s leading chatbot platform announced a partnership aimed at improving financial literacy in China. Under the terms of the partnership, RIKAI Labs will use CentSai’s engaging educational content to enhance its award-winning financial literacy chatbot, called “FinBot.” CentSai’s content is expected to launch in China in the fourth quarter of 2017.

FinBot teaches basic financial concepts through friendly conversations with users incorporating multimedia and social elements to increase engagement.

Have you already filed with FEMA but been denied? Is the estimate that your insurance company gave you much lower than what you expected. What roadblocks should you be aware of when it comes to filing a FEMA or flood insurance claim?

On today’s show we talked with former catastrophe adjuster, Kevin Godfrey about how to deal with FEMA and/or your insurance company.

The brutal storm that pummeled the Houston and Gulf Coast area is likely to rank as one of the nation's costliest natural disasters, with tens of billions in lost economic activity and property damage across a region crucial to the energy, chemical and shipping industries.

On today's show we talked about the Macro and Micro economic impact of Hurricane Harvey. We looked at expected cost at a national level. We also examined the possibility of FEMA buying out homes flooded by Harvey. 

Houston Money Week has compiled a list of resources available through our partner organizations for disaster recovery after Harvey. We discussed some of the initial rejections on FEMA claims and how to get help if you are undocumented.

For many marketing professionals, "science" is a four-letter word. They see brand-building as an unteachable art guided by their intuition and experience. But at its core, marketing aims to seed ideas into people's minds, make them feel a certain way, and, ultimately, get them to act.

Our guest today was Daryl Weber, author of Brand Seduction: How Neuroscience Can Help Marketers Build Memorable Brands. We discussed the role of brand in the presidential election, and much more.In Brand Seduction, Daryl reveals the latest psychological and neuroscientific discoveries about how our minds process brand information and make decisions, and the important roles our emotions and unconscious play in our selections.
