The big question among the middle class is; how do I recover from my financial losses post recession? I’ve done over 100 interviews in the media in the past 12 months on this topic, and the answer is important and obvious. Watch this short video I shot at FOX studios in Atlanta after appearing on FOX Business Network’s Varney & Co. Wall Street analysts Stuart Varney and Charles Payne pushed back on my theory, but once people wake up and realize they don’t have the money to retire they will have no choice.

Investing in 2013 is tricky business, even for the pros who have their ears to the street 24/7. The stock market continues to climb, yet most experts are predicting a 10-15% correction at any time. Something to consider are alternative investments, which are gaining popularity around the world and have the potential to produce exciting returns. I’ve been involved in this world for a number of years and had some pretty good luck. As always, buyer beware: if it looks too good to be true, it probably is! I’ve taken a bath a few times in this arena early on, and it’s easy to get taken if you’re unfamiliar with the investment. Watch this short video I filmed last week while we were considering the purchase of a small overseas operation that looked very good on paper.

Why Bill Maher is important for America

Posted by: | Comments (2)

Last night my wife and I went to see Bill Maher, the host of Real Time with Bill Maher, and the former host of Politically Incorrect, in Ft. Lauderdale. While I didn’t agree with many of Maher’s views on politics, sex, and religion, I was impressed with his insights and level of critical thinking. This guy is smart, irreverent, and unafraid to say what he thinks. Though this Harvard educated comic delivers his points of view through a thin veil of humor, it’s plainly obvious to any audience that he believes everything he says. Thats why I think Bill Maher, and people like him who are bold enough to express what many people are thinking, are important to America. The past is gone, and many of the beliefs we’ve clung to like a drowning man grasping to a life perserver, are archiac, outdated, and in desparate need of deeper reflection through a more sophisticated set of filters with greater criteria. Maher suggested last night that it’s time to grow up, and I agree with that. Many of the beliefs we were brainwashed with as children (however innocently) need to be upgraded or discarded. Please listen to this post and see what you think. I’ll look forward to your comments.  Steve Siebold (5:30)
