When we look at 2022 in the rearview mirror, many of us will remember it as a year of inflation, volatility, and extreme uncertainty. 

So, in the midst of a massive market contraction and financial upheaval, what can you do to ensure you don’t run out of money–especially when it comes to your Social Security? 

To help me answer that question, I’m thrilled to welcome Professor Larry Kotlikoff back to the podcast. Larry has written o...

If you own a home, it’s probably one of the most valuable assets–if not the most valuable asset–in your portfolio. However, it isn’t always the easiest to extract value from.

Today’s guest, Matthew Sullivan, is working to change that. He’s the founder of QuantmRE, where he helps homeowners unlock their equity without taking on any additional debt. He’s also creating new opportunities for investors to invest in the equity in those h...

One of the issues with our current education system is that we aren’t teaching students about personal finance and investing. So how can we develop and improve financial literacy, especially among younger students? From learning how to invest, understanding the basics of the stock market, and how to effectively save money, it can be pretty overwhelming.

My guest today is Myles Gage. He’s an entrepreneur who has been teaching his st...

We’re all leaders. Even if you don’t own a business, many people lead families, Little League teams, volunteer organizations, and all sorts of other groups–and leadership has changed drastically in the last 40 years.

Unfortunately, leadership isn’t something they teach in school, and the consequences are enormous. 

Today’s guest, Wade Thomas, has spent 20 years in the corporate world as the head of human resources for a large compa...

Few of us have ever experienced anything like the turmoil and upheaval of the last two years. We’re all feeling the impacts of longevity, inflation, taxes, and frustrating decisions by our government. This means it’s a great time to welcome today’s guest back to the podcast.

As business owners, your goal isn’t just to build wealth–it’s to find purpose and create a real legacy. However, so many entrepreneurs make the same mistakes, day in and day out, leaving them undervalued and stressed out–and these errors take a toll that gets worse with every passing year, especially as you head toward retirement.

Author Jim Muehlhausen has learned this well. Over the course of over 11,000 coaching sessions with bu...

At Bayntree, a lot of the small business owners and solo employers we work with start asking us one question as we get closer to the end of the year: what can I do to help save for retirement? 


There’s no right answer for everyone–in fact, it’s a bit of a mixed bag. There’s a lot of options, and you’ll need to talk to your advisor or CPA to come up with a plan that works well for you. 


Here to shed some light on this topic is m...

If you’re getting close to 50, you’re well on your way to retirement. You’ve got situations to look at, several possible mistakes you’ve already made, and some time to solve them–but the longer you wait, the worse the damage might be. 

Though today’s episode was made with the Gen Xers in mind, there is plenty of advice that will work for those of you who are 45, 40, or even 35. It’s all about formulating a plan based on where you a...

A lot of people mistake “tax-deferred” for “tax-free.” This can be beneficial in the short term, but can ultimately leave you owing more on higher balances at higher rates. But what if, in some cases, the best course of action is to take advantage of the low tax rates available right now, so you can grow your money 100% for you - and not Uncle Sam - for the rest of your life?

My guest, Ed Slott, makes the case for this in his new b...

We all talk about estate planning, and most of us think of it as something we’ll get to next year. 

Why? It’s simple: estate planning forces us to admit we’re not invincible. For so many of us, it takes a major milestone or a tragic event to get our ducks in a row, and that’s not a good way to plan, no matter how old you are or what stage of life you’re in.

This is why I’m excited to introduce you to Kirsten Howe. Kirsten has spent...

For so many people, just hearing the word “timeshare” brings chills, angst, and anger to the surface. There are 10 million timeshare owners out there, and as many as 80 percent of them aren’t just unhappy with what they purchased - they don’t know how to get out of it. 

If you’re one of the many unsatisfied timeshare owners looking for an exit (or know someone with a timeshare horror story), today’s episode is for you. I’m talking ...

Whether you’re an individual working for a company or a business owner, you need to understand your 401(k). Along with Social Security, your savings, and a few other key assets, your 401(k) is probably going to be the single most important account you have.

Whether you’re an executive speaking in front of your colleagues, an entrepreneur leading a sales presentation, or even just talking with your friends, at some point or another, you’re going to have to speak in public.

More than ever before, local businesses and small business owners need your support. If you’re a business owner, I’m sure you know this by now; if you’re a consumer, you’re probably wondering what you can do to help your community and stop big chains from taking over even more of the landscape.

    The Piketon Massacre

    The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
