Money isn't the only thing, but it touches everything. Too many Americans today struggle with money because they don't know how to play the game. For those who are ready to master the game of money, John Grace and Daniel Medina will be your coaches who first help you know your objectives. Then you can establish personal goals so that whether you live too long or die too soon, you can play the game to win.brbr Our trademark statement, “The Proof is in the Planning” represents the hard work and perseverance, coupled with a sound plan for the future. The financial plans we create are highly customized, but they have three things in common: They are designed to be STRONG, SAFE, and SIMPLE. Strong means they can weather market uncertainty. Safe means they can help protect you from unnecessary risk. Simple means you will understand everything you’re doing all the time. Past performance does not guarantee future results. All investing involves risks including possible loss of principal.

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system.

If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away.

From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
