EMAIL #1: The First KEY to Wealth
Your BRAND/LOGO here
Subject Line: Saving Isn’t Just for Emergencies
In Busting the Financial Planning Lies, Kim Butler wrote about the Prosperity Ladder™.
It’s a simple concept showing the actions required to go from Poverty all the way to Prosperity.
Without saving, we’re “okay” only if “everything is okay.” If the car breaks down, if the dog gets sick, if the roof leaks, we find ourselves in debt or behind on bills.
A healthy emergency fund takes care of those issues. But what then?
Most people start plugging money into their 401(k) or other investment accounts where their money gets “locked up” for many years to come.
This might sound attractive in a way. You might even think, “I don’t want easy access to my retirement money!”
But leaving your dollars under someone else’s control means you can’t USE and CONTROL the equity you build!
And when your dollars are subject to endless fees, future taxes, and even market RISK, then your dollars are benefiting someone else.
Building LIQUIDITY by SAVING – above and beyond your emergency fund – is the first KEY to creating prosperity.
We’re programmed to think about saving all wrong.
Typical financial advice tells us to skip saving and go straight to investing. We’re told to split up our money into a 401(k), IRA, 529, and so on. But this prevents us from having liquidity and flexibility.
To understand more about the problem with typical financial advice on saving, read our article: “Financial Flexibility: Saving Too Much in All the Wrong Places?” http://partners4prosperity.com/financial-flexibility-saving-too-much-in-all-the-wrong-places
When we don’t have liquidity, we lose control of our dollars and compromise our ability to build real wealth! To learn more about how saving paid ENORMOUS dividends for 4 well-known entrepreneurs, read:
“Saving Right: Is Your Emergency Fund Ready for Opportunities?” http://partners4prosperity.com/emergency-fund-best-way-to-save-money
P.S. I’m NOT talking about putting all of your savings in bank savings accounts where it earns next-to-nothing (and what it does earn is taxed!) For the SHOCKING truth about “bank security,” watch for my next email.
In the meantime, just reply to this email if we can help you get started saving, investing, or earning income with your nest egg.
EMAIL #2: Is it SAFE to Save in the BANK? (The Shocking Truth!)
YOUR BRAND/LOGO HERE
Subject Line: Banks are BROKEN
We believe that saving money is the FOUNDATION of wealth. But where can you save where your money can keep pace with inflation AND be safe?
We all know that rates are at their rock bottom, but you may be blissfully unaware of all of the potential threats to your savings from theft, civil asset forfeiture, cyber-crimes, bank melt-downs and prying eyes.
We believe you would be wise to diversify savings as well as investments. We wrote this article to alert our clients to critical issues within the banking system:
“How Safe is Your Money? FDIC Insurance and Fractional Reserve Banking.” http://partners4prosperity.com/how-safe-is-your-money
What about FDIC insurance protection of $250k?
As Ike Devji, an asset protection attorney states, “many professionals I deal with, including a former bank president in the Southwest, have described that limit as a placebo. They believe the FDIC would actually be insolvent in the event of a major run on the banks. If you remember correctly, the limit was increased to $250,000 only four years ago to prevent such a run.”
FDIC insurance may make us feel more secure, but it can only back up a small percentage of bank deposits before the house of cards would fall.
Then there’s the problem of crime, confiscation, creditors and lawsuits! It will probably never happen to you, but sometimes those who should be protecting us are the ones we need protection from. You’ll be shocked by the stories in this popular article:
“Is It Safe to Save in the USA?” http://partners4prosperity.com/safe-to-save-us-bank-account-confiscations
So where CAN you save? An excellent alternative is where BANKS are keeping much of THEIR cash… in high cash value life insurance.
Why are banks socking away many billions in life insurance – in increasing amounts every year since the Great Recession – while peddling certificates of deposit to their customers? We’ll explain in our next email.
P.S. We’d love to give you more information about this savings alternative! Simply reply to this email, or call us at xxxxxxxx during business hours.
EMAIL #3: Where BANKS Save THEIR Money!
YOUR BRAND/LOGO HERE
Subject Line: Why Bank-Owned Life Insurance is on the Rise
As I mentioned in the last email, banks are not saving their own money in certificates of deposit, nor are they putting their own dollars in the stock market.
At an increasing rate, banks are putting their “Tier 1” assets (their best, most secure capital) into high cash value life insurance:
“The Banker’s Secret: Life Insurance as an Investment?” http://partners4prosperity.com/the-bankers-secret-life-insurance-as-an-investment
According to InsuranceNews.net, bank holdings of permanent life insurance (known as BOLI, or bank-owned life insurance) continue to increase, reaching $149.6 billion in 2014.
Why are banks buying life insurance? According to BankDirector.com:
“Some have asked why BOLI is still such an attractive asset choice for banks. Briefly, the tax-deferred interest generated by a fixed income BOLI policy is typically substantially higher than a bank can earn on other investments with a similar risk profile… BOLI provides a competitive yield, currently in the range of 3.25 percent to 3.50 percent after all expenses are deducted, which translates into a tax equivalent yield of 5 percent to 5.4 percent.”
High Cash Value Whole Life Insurance is P4P’s cash alternative. It has paid dividends for well over 100 years, in every sort of economy and it grows cash much faster than any savings account, money market, or certificate of deposit when held long-term.
Mutual insurance companies also offer protection that banks can’t even offer, because insurance companies aren’t leveraged or taxed like banks.
This alternative way of saving increases your financial security, flexibility, privacy, and long-term returns. There’s a lot to like about life insurance, even if you don’t have heirs to consider.
If you do have spouses, children, or grandchildren, there are profound multi-generational benefits of using whole life insurance, which you’ll learn more about in our next email.
To find out more about this banking alternative and get an illustration showing how a policy may perform, contact us at xxxxxxxxx, or simply reply to this email.
We help clients in all 50 states via the phone and internet, and we look forward to hearing from you!

Prosperity Pitfalls Responses
- Does it surprise you we suggest high deductibles. This is only if you have cash to pay the deductibles, of course. You’ll want to THINK of this as an “opportunity cost” decision. High deductibles mean lower premiums, even if only slightly lower, for many years. How long will you drive a car or own a home?
- Liability umbrellas cover you above and beyond standard car and home insurance for bodily injury, property damage and other liabilities. Many agents never bring these up because they are small and inconvenient to write. Yet as soon as you start to build any wealth, SEE how you can protect that wealth. The personal liability policy is the simplest form of asset protection to acquire. Further steps are trusts, limited partnerships, and corporations.
- Medical insurance obviously pays hospital bills and possible prescriptions. Disability insurance pays you so you can pay your bills. Many people have these benefits at work, yet know very little about them. Your questions should be: a) what is the maximum amount? b) What is the deductible or waiting period? c) How much is the premium? Make sure you SEE the big picture.
- We say “only” term because its costs (premium plus opportunity cost) exceed its benefits if you have no future strategy to convert the term to permanent – preferably whole life. Term is fine for a short to medium period of time but proves inefficient over time. Make sure you are MEASURING your opportunity costs.
- Current being the operative word here, defined by being less than 5 years old. However, the more important issue is that the documents reflect your current wishes and current tax law. Be aware that any year could bring a potential estate tax law change that may render all documents obsolete.
- Your will or trust should appoint a guardian for minor children or the state will do it for you in the event both parents die. The state has no knowledge of your family, so please don’t let this pitfall catch anyone off guard. THINK for yourself how you would like this handled.
- Important papers, such as wills and trusts, pictures of your possessions in your house, closets, cupboards, even treasured family photos can all be stored on line. CONTROL of your documents is critical.
- Saving 15 – 20% of your gross income (no matter how large or small it is) is one of the most important steps to take towards prosperity. Boring but effective: constant saving to your Prosperity FLOW Through Account will be the fuel that feeds all other investments as well as your own financial freedom.
- Typical financial planners extol the “miracle of compound interest” yet rarely discuss the underlying taxes and opportunity costs that implode the account (not to mention the management fees). Reinvesting should rarely occur in a taxable account. Instead, ask for the interest, dividends and capital gains (short and long term) to be paid in cash to your PFT Account so your earnings will be MOVED through another asset.
- Dollar cost averaging is the financial institution’s way to get you to help them build assets they use, even though the asset is in your name. Adding money on a monthly basis (FLOW) is a good thing to do, but potentially more effective into your PFT Account, where you aren’t trying to track basis (very difficult to do in a dollar cost averaged account).
- The stock market always has been a roller coaster ride. While there can be effective ways to increase your prosperity in it, we find that management fees and opportunity costs erode the value. Consequently using only the stock market is a pitfall since it subjects you to lack of CONTROL. Ask your Prosperity Economics Advisor™ to show you the whole truth about management fees on the Truth Concepts Accumulation Calculator.
- Similarly to using only the stock market, using only real estate is a pitfall as well because it too has high and low periods of time which you can’t CONTROL. Importantly, many owners don’t know the true ROI on their particular deals. Ask your Prosperity Economics Advisor™ to quantify your ROI on the Truth Concepts Real Estate Calculator.
- We view deferred annuities as a potential prosperity pitfall due to your inability to MOVE the money through the product. Additionally, while they are tax deferred, income from them is taxed on the LIFO method, meaning last in first out, so it’s taxed on earnings first and at income tax rates, not capital gain tax rates. We acknowledge there are some cases where both deferred and immediate annuities may be helpful.
- Your desire to educate your children often causes pitfalls in the form of money being locked up into 529 plans and other government sponsored accounts. These only do one job and, due to the opportunity costs one must MEASURE, are very ineffective because those dollars are now gone from your wealth forever.
- While we could argue that the entire qualified plan arena (401k, 403b, IRA, etc.) is a pitfall, we’ll focus here on contribution levels above any match. It’s clear that any dollars in these plans are unable to MOVE through them and consequently those dollars are limited. Funding them above match maximums hinders true prosperity
- Adding new money or additional savings is smart. You always want to be conscious of the FLOW of income towards prosperity, and adding 15 – 20% of your income is good. However, locking it up in IRA’s and even Roth’s limits its usefulness so we view these as pitfalls.
- Opportunity costs are a basic economic concept that should be applied to every financial decision you make, yet typical financial planning rarely addresses them. Opportunity cost is the value of the best alternative given up. Make sure you MEASURE costs in building wealth, such as educating children, management fees, term life insurance premiums, etc.
- Using your death benefit during your 80’s and 90’s is an easy way to MULTIPLY dollars easily. The strategies required to do this are spelled out in the book available at liveyourlifeinsurance.com and may require a Prosperity Economics Advisor™ to tailor a strategy for you.
