Whether you realize it or not, we are all playing the Wealth Game. Some never get off first base; others sprint and find themselves in second base; a lucky few reach third base. However, no matter where you are in the game of wealth, you must finish the game and reach the home plate of your financial life. So, what does winning the Wealth Game look like and how do you get there?

In this episode, I discuss why it’s important to finish the wealth game by reaching home plate and outline how to get there. I enumerate the three characteristics of people who have reached home plate. I share the financial tools you can leverage as you generate wealth—including life and disability insurance—and explain why the IRC is the single greatest wealth generation tool in America. I also highlight the value of working with coaches and financial advisors.
