We can’t control the “what ifs” of life... but we can choose to live in faith. Faith for the future does not entail thinking raw positive thoughts or screaming “I am a hero” in the mirror. In fact, such raw positivity, unfounded on a solid base, leads to fear and frustration.
On Wealth Talks, join Tom and John as they discuss how to live with faith and balance for the future.
Rumor is an emotional roller-coaster which can prove embarrassing, painful, and costly. While it may be natural to react to a rumor, people who react to rumors often pay a price for their actions.
So how can one assess a rumor and respond rationally? Today on Wealth Talks, John is joined by Jesse McFie. Together they discuss rumors, and how to respond in a way that limits the negative impact on your finances and other life decisions.

The new year is almost here. Starting January 1st we often see more people outside, walking, jogging or running working on their “resolutions”. This usually lasts for a couple of weeks after which the people, as well as their resolutions perhaps, fade into obscurity.
Are these resolutions not merely confessions?
On today’s episode with special guest Ben McFie, you will learn how to make New Year’s goals which will last long after the first two weeks of January. Listen Now
How many times have you heard someone recite sentiments along these lines “It’ll be my kids’ problem by then”… implying that they will be dead and their kids will have to deal with the problem instead.
The lack of responsibility is shocking, and the results of this thinking are disastrous. We are all susceptible to this type of thinking.
Even Hezekiah one of the best kings of Israel was caught in this way of thinking. Although there was peace in Hezekiah’s day, the Israelites eventually became enslaved to the Babylonians.
Today on Wealth Talks, Tom and John discuss how to avoid this type of thinking, and how to leave a real and lasting legacy.
In American society, more and more people seem to be less interested in making any sort of commitment, preferring a quick and easy relationship. Those only seeking a relationship are typically absorbed with themselves, looking only for what they can get out of the relationship.
Commitments are very different. Those looking to make a commitment are interested in how they can help other people, and create a better life for those around them.
Today on Wealth Talks, Tom and John are joined by Michele McFie.
On todays show, they discuss the differences between people engaged in a commitment and those in a relationship… and how differently they make financial decisions.
It’s obvious that Christian faith is under attack on many levels across America. This inherently includes an attack on the Judeo-Christian values which support the ownership of personal property and allow American families to build sustainable wealth. Dr. Ralph Reed’s latest book For God and Country provides a defense of Judeo-Christian values especially relating to political decisions in the face of vocal opposition.
When it comes to elected officials, you can’t ignore or deny that there are “politics” involved in the way they deal with certain issues and regulations including recent restrictions and standards surrounding COVID and rioting.
But Freedom is in the DNA of the American people, and most agree on the foundational values of: Faith in God, Strong Families & Civil Society, Free Markets, Rule of Law and Limited Government.
Many evangelical Christians are facing hate for supporting Donald J. Trump for President in 2016. As the Founder and Chairman of Faith and Freedom Coalition + working on the campaigns for 11 presidential elections over the years, Dr. Reed definitely has a connection to the pulse of national politics as they relate to Christian Faith and values.
Listen and consider what the election means for your faith, values and wealth.

Krish Dhanam joins the show today!
Are some of George Orwell’s famous predictions coming true?
Foundations matter - and no less in the times we are living today. When you draw a line there is always a price to pay, but history shows that people who draw the line and stand by their values are the ones who later rise to heights of prominence.
Krish also shares lessons from the Bible about convictions… and the cost which these convictions can carry.
Developing the Mental Agility, the Physical Presence and the Spiritual Character you need to weather the social and economical storms of the 21st century has never been more paramount.
Excellent and important material.

He straddled the bicycle for the first time, set his feet on the pedals and rode serenely away into the glowing sunset. Oh if only it was that easy! It isn’t of-course, because, like everything, there is a learning curve.
Is it possible to eliminate the learning curve on a bicycle by learning everything you can about it?
What if you learned the way the shifter worked, the way the derailleur, the chain the sprocket, the cassette, the front brake and the back brake worked. What if you looked up a video on bicycling 101 and even read an entire book on bicycling for dummies, would the learning curve be eliminated? No! Decreased? Yes, but eliminated? Emphatically no!
So how does all this relate to good money management? Listen to the episode now!
In the 1970’s DMSO was very popular with athletes🏃🏽♂️but you had to go to the vacuum store to get it. Where is DMSO today? What about other Fad remedies that come and go?
You can see a similar pattern in the Financial World too. Fads come and go, the Guarantees stick around through thick and thin. Some fads are harmless, but many times the smartest thing you do with a Fad is - avoid it. Just because “everybody is doing it” doesn’t mean that automatically becomes a good thing to do. Processionary caterpillars provide a great example on how this habit can be fatal.
When it comes to your money, don’t let an overnight fad burn out, taking your life savings along with it. Always make a point to look deeper than the superficial excitement around any proposition.

Did you know that nearly 3 out of every 10 people provide care for chronically ill, disabled or aged members of their family? 😨 It’s true, and more than 1 out of 10 of these family caregivers provide 40 or more hours of care per week!
Whether you’re directly providing this care or financing the care for your family - this can really affect your finances FAST. But your retirement and legacy shouldn’t have to suffer for this important priority IF the family plans ahead.
Don’t wait until it’s too late. Explore the options and get perspective for your family plan.
There’s a good case for Adult Children to Insure their Parents, but this isn’t always possible. Even if parents don’t want to leave a legacy, the best solution includes a way to restore the financial burden resting upon family care-givers (or care-financiers).

Thomas Edison once said that “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” How true!
