(February 23, 2015) The Del Walmsley Radio Show: Passing The “Torch” From Generation To Generation

For many of us, it can be hard to see how far others had to go in order for us to get where we are today. Literally and figuratively, generations of people have triumphed and toiled through adversity time and time again throughout history, and that collective work, in one way or another, has made way for you. Therefore, our lives can be viewed as “torches” that have been carried to this point not to remain here, but to be taken further. On this show, Del Walmsley reminds all of his listeners of their duty to themselves to live louder, bolder and more vibrant lives, so that their “torch” may burn magnificently when it is passed to the generations to come.

(February 18, 2015) Del Walmsley: Starting Off Life With One Tremendously Bad Investment

When it comes down to it, there is only one sound economic reason to pursue a college education and that is deferred gratification – forgoing a smaller, immediate reward to wait and obtain a larger one down the road. But, without this reward awaiting many students upon graduation, a college education is starting to look more and more like one tremendously bad investment. According to an article read by Del Walmsley on this podcast, “student debt has gone up by 74% in the last 5 years” and it doesn’t look like it’s changing in direction. What does this mean for you? Maybe it’s time to start looking at a college education for its soundness as an investment instead of looking at it like a done deal.

(February 18, 2015) The Del Walmsley Radio Show: Grade A Debt For The Grade A Student

If you ever sat through a college-prep lecture in high school, you might have heard the speaker mention that it would substantially increase your chances of attaining a well-paying job. Maybe so. But, never did you here them say, “oh and one other thing, you’ll have to dish out anywhere from 40 to $100,000 to pay for it, the resulting debt will gut your credit score, so you’ll have no purchasing power, and a fraction of the job opportunities we just mentioned will actually exist.” No, that would have been a different lecture entirely. Well, Del’s prep class is now in session, the rose colored glasses are off and today’s college education gets the evaluation it deserves.

(February 17, 2015) Del Walmsley: Don’t Let The Catch-22 Get You

What’s the trick to getting somewhere in today’s economy? There is no trick at all. But, that’s not to say that you are not being tricked in the game of attaining financial mobility. For example, to say to people, who cannot secure themselves financially with their earned income and savings alone, that they should secure their debt, their low income and their insufficient savings, is entirely illogical. Yet, that’s exactly what is proposed in a Wall Street article read by Del Walmsley right here on this podcast. But, don’t worry, when paired with Del’s real financial advice, this article is a fantastic read!

(February 17, 2015) The Del Walmsley Radio Show: Pushing A Boulder Up A Hill, Only To Watch It Roll Down The Other Side

For many Americans, the most scrutinized things in their lives are their income, their savings and their debt. Then, with the advent of a recession, these are the very arenas that are affected the most; income stagnates or it falls, savings get depleted and debt goes up. So, is it really that helpful for the PEW Charitable Trusts to report these very items as the most important issues to be tackled by U.S. families today? We’d say… no. So, where do you go from here? Well, if it is not if another recession is coming, but when, then maybe the question you should be asking yourself is if your income and savings plans will pan out, instead of asking when. This podcast is here to introduce you to a new element of the equation – investments that pay you and shield you from a life spent pushing a boulder over a hill.

(February 16, 2015) Del Walmsley: The 401k – Open For Criticism & For Fraud

Do a quick search of 401k fraud and you will likely find Pandora’s Box of criminal abuse to these accounts. Del Walmsley sure did. But, what you will have a harder time finding is someone roasting this very topic, who is not only supposed to believe in this retirement saving strategy, but who makes his money from it as well. Yes, we always knew that the supplemental 401k plan had been reduced to upside down logic, but we would have never guessed that its marketing had as well.

(February 16, 2015) The Del Walmsley Radio Show: What Happens When The Other Side Stops Fighting Back

Apparently, it may no longer be necessary for Del Walmsley to point out the endless downsides of the 401k. As this show reveals, his competition is starting to do the job for him. Yes, on this podcast, Del reads an article sent out by Ric Edelman Financial Services (a 401k administration company) that bashes 401k administration companies, which is authored and backed by (would you believe it) Ric Edelman. Oh, and one other thing, Del also reveals that 401k fraud may be the most prevalent white collar crime that exists today…
