I’m Buying Call Options on Entrepreneurship

Asset Protection – Entrepreneurship Over the past week I have been working with one of my asset protection clients developing a strategy for him to minimize his risk.  He is a commercial real estate entrepreneur with a fairly large 8 figure net worth.  Every time I work with successful entrepreneurs like him I can feel […]

Putting a Band-aid on a Bullet Hole

If you can fog a mirror you are certainly aware of the Obamessiah’s grand plan to save jobs in America.  If you are so inclined you can read the full 199 page proposal here. For those of you not inclined to read the musings of Barry O and his legal minions, let me summarize his […]

More Incestuous than a West Virginia Coal Town

A couple of days ago, a very good friend of mine, Greg, emailed me about the recent emails I have been sending out to my readers.  Essentially, he said I was screwing up.  His complaint was the recent emails promoting the products of other companies and how it was diluting my message. Greg is a […]

Where Turmoil Exists, Opportunity Persists

Last week was tumultuous.  Personally I moved to another country, settled in an apartment, then had to unexpectedly move to another apartment temporarily.  I have also had no less than 3 offers on apartments fall through because I waited just a little too long. I feel today is the day though.  Of course I am […]

The Dead Hedge Fund Manager Bounce

If you read my letter last week, you know I have now escaped from America.  Last week we moved to Riga, Latvia.  It was a hellish plane ride riddled with delays, running through the airport baggage bouncing behind, barely making connections, and lost luggage.  You name it, it went wrong. Now that we are settled […]

Hey Look! A Chicken…

This week I need to apologize in advance. I am warning you; this article is very disjointed to the point that any high school English teacher would scold me for the lack of flow. Most likely it would earn a solid F on the grading scale. Regardless, I have several things to discuss with you […]

Wealth Fortress Trust

Strangely enough, it seems that QE2 came and went with very little fanfare. Much like the Y2K fear, it seems to have been overblown in the markets with even treasury bonds showing slight gains. The markets have shrugged off bad economic data and with minor glimpses of hope in the housing sector; everyone seems to […]

EscapeWealth Launch

This week I am going to keep this exceptionally short and sweet. I have been busy working on a new, but related business venture. We have partnered with EscapeArtist to now run their asset protection portal – EscapeWealth. I am very excited about this project as it allows us to partner with the world’s leading […]

Asset Protection for Your IRA and 401K

Over the past year I have written several times about the potential for the US government to nationalize private retirement accounts like IRA’s and 401k’s.  If you aren’t including your retirement accounts in your asset protection planning, you are fooling yourself into thinking they are safe.   Of course I know you all think, “That […]
