The Important Things

Over the weekend my wife finally gave me the ok to share the news of her pregnancy on social media; it seems kind of silly for a grown man to be so excited to post to social media, but I was stoked to share with friends and family that we’d be welcoming our third child later this fall. As I began…

Guest Post on Live Wonderfull

My friends over at Live Wonderfull have a great blog covering everything Millennials (and really everyone) are most concerned with: work, wellness and travel. You should give them a follow, and you should probably start today… I had the fortune of contributing to their “Let’s Talk Money Mondays” series, and this week I cover how portfolio income can help supplement your…

RLWM is Growing

I’ve been making the rounds on social media today sharing some exciting news…the RL Wealth Management family is growing. No, I’m not quite ready to hire my first employee. Rather, my wife is expecting our third child in late October, and since RLWM is an extension of my family, I view it as the company is growing too. As we…

Home Country Bias Check-Up

Earlier this year I wrote about home country bias and how most investors suffer from it. I’ll skip the summary–you can read the post via the link below, but I thought it would be worth revisiting now that the 1st quarter is over to see if investors with home country bias are still missing out. Before I show this chart,…

Vlog: Life Insurance Through Your Employer

With the exception of not having a will, inadequate life insurance is one of the most common “mistakes” I see when meeting with young families. Understandably, no one wants to have the conversation surrounding life insurance, and too often there is a false sense of security because of the life insurance coverage provided by employers. For my first video blog, aka…

Don’t Knock Hourly Planning

My biggest beef with my industry is the underlying theme that only families with wealth need financial advisors; I’m talking real financial advisors–fiduciaries, not salespeople disguised as financial advisors. No financial advisor will admit to this, and they don’t have to, just look at the way the majority of financial advisory firms are structured–an annual management fee based on the…
