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

Older adults are less likely to have a will: The number of older and middle-aged adults with estate planning documents dropped by 20% and 25% since 2019, respectively.

Kim Hegwood knows the importance of establishing a legacy for you and your loved ones. Seeing her grandparents struggle with the ins-and-outs of Social Security, estate and protection planning, elder law and other bureaucracies associated with the aging process, Kim experienced first-hand the many financial and emotional challenges facing the elderly, infirm and their families. Inspired to help people with similar obstacles, Kim started Hegwood Law Group, a family firm where a family’s best interests remain at the forefront. A mother of three, Kim also found that by starting her own practice, she could be on-hand and play an active part in her children’s lives.

"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.
