High income vs High net worth where do you rank?

Episode 32:   How much you earn doesn’t necessarily correlate with how much you’re worth.

Top 1% earners:  ~$390k

Top 1% net worth: ~$2.4 million  (Believe me when I tell you that I know MANY middle class Joe’s that never earned $300k and yet they’re nearing retirement with a net worth of $2 million.  How did they do it?  Prudent and intelligent living.)

Mortgage debt is flaxen shackles, Obamacare propaganda at WebMD and more

Episode 31:   Mortgage debt- whether you pay off the mortgage or not, the point is to lead a prudent lifestyle so that you own your house and it doesn’t own you.

Should you pay off your mortgage early?  That depends…we discuss some options.

The main take away on debt- the interest fee isn’t the biggest penalty, it’s the use of leverage to lead a life that’s beyond what you can afford.  The danger is: not living within your means.

In this episode we also cover Obamacare propaganda and some other news tidbits.

Fund managers are constrained from selling, Markets fall below 50 day moving average

Episode 30:   Mutual fund managers and other institutional investors are constrained by the mandate of their prospectus.  In some cases this prevents them from selling equities and moving to cash, to avoid an apparent stock market meltdown.  They’re forced to buy and hold.  Perhaps that’s why the financial industry tries to convince individual investors that they too should shackle themselves into buy and hold handcuffs.

When fund managers sense a pending market correction, if they can’t move to cash, they’re forced to purchase the safest stocks- usually big blue chip dividend paying companies.  Again, perhaps that’s why the Russell 2000 is doing so poorly and the DOW has been hitting new highs.

Today the major indexes fell hard below their 50 day moving averages.  This might be a harbinger of things to come.

The US Dollar remains strong.

Cities that support a blue collar millionaire lifestyle

Episode 29:   These cities support a blue collar [entrepreneur] millionaire lifestyle because opportunity is not overshadowed by cost of living: Flower Mound TX, Broken Arrow OK, Olathe KS, Richardson TX, Carmel IN, Meridian ID, Kenosha WI, Cape Coral FL, Layton UT, Henderson NV.

The key to a reasonable cost of living is keeping housing below 3 times your annual salary: $100k income would mean not paying more than $300k for a house.  [By living within your means, you can eventually conform to wealth building principle #2:  Live debt free]

My definition of “blue collar entrepreneur” is broadly defined as someone that works with their hands creating a product or service- so a carpenter or a heart surgeon would qualify.  Even most small business owners would meet the definition.

The key point is PRODUCTION.   [wealth building principle #3:  Production is the source of wealth]

Volatile markets and a rising dollar, Triple Witching Expiration, Alibaba IPO

Episode 28:  The markets are extremely volatile and the US dollar is rising.  IBD’s market status has moved back under pressure after only a few days of uptrend.  My take can be found here:  http://www.investablewealth.com/markets-volatile-while-the-us-dollar-rises/

The global economy is slowing.  The rising dollar may hurt exporters and reduce foreign profits because of unfavorable exchange rates.  Be cautious.

Listener questions on:  Triple Witching Expiration, Alibaba IPO.
