Is showing up at that point we wanna go ahead and show how who we help is OK if we take the time and teach you about the pros and cons of forward thinking about here. And you know George we've got a great couple and usher if you're aware this we've got a great couple coming back in this week and George has actually been invited to comment and speaking to each concern room best thing.

It didn't seem so complicated I don't think I could really wrap my hand around all the strategy he doesn't talk to how many their are immensely. Having surgery I think it is if if they can use the if I don't professional right yes he does this and they do so often it's it's not that big a deal to it to somebody who is hasn't done it before it's a huge undertaking I understand that yet that's where the professional picked up and he comes and which we just capsule I think the and they added value we bring to these meetings at that at no cost would be showing some of the strategies that people have available.

Grow it from here and not have to go back through the pain and the fake any. That those 20089. Put people through. People do what Patrick is talking about. That is. One over hidden secrets we have it say most people look at their retirement stores or money let's put this by the money. They have to save money then which is what CDs. Yeah Bryant. Fans some people think bonds on us early so that Tony getting in CD's right now and next to nothing if not laughable 1% or less right to you being punished for being conservative and and try to keep your cash and then say so on the sides now it's pushing people into the stock market. And closed markets going up every urban is fine the second continue forever is Suzanne that's forever part on through we we know the answer that. Market goes up market goes down there on these accounts of how we know we just love and their link to cancer which gives you the protection of your principal. Take your money safe yet you do get some of the upside if markets do go up an opportunity to. Have these gains and as Patrick cut Kelli said not only do you get the upside of these teams whenever locks in entry anniversary date you can't give up you do not portion. Those games. So you don't have these paper gains or paper losses that that people talk about. Which is when he's only worth what it's worth is when you cash and out if you're in the stock market true true but when you look at your statement you made so much more news desk and tell what you happened and there's a thousand paper and these accounts are designed to give protection principles are number one golf. So it's it's safe money yet TVs on the upside without the markets these are called into camps the US government has these. And the banks have these insurance companies have these. And yet these are one of the most under utilized fools. Out there reason being. It is the banks are rather have you don't want to out below return CDs or profitable for them. The stock brokers. This is that these type of products are low commission lo fi. Direct competitor of our competitors so they're very quiet about those so it's usually left up to the independence. Such as song of myself and Ryan here that bring this to the attention so part people struggle with is I haven't heard about them. So we have to take the time and education A vis a veteran these type of product program for Perth dozens of years. Give you the results return show you how these products work the pros and the cons there's no free lunch obviously Kristen. So showing them that to the government has some products like this. There's actually market linked CDs that are out there we have some upside if market fears insurance company products with the colts fixed indexed annuities. Which some people so while stay away or you have to be educated on them but if you're looking for save money and you're tired of getting point one. Percent return. And you like some of the upside. Whichever index on PS and 500 such but and to give you visual an example I was works Christen. The market went up. Now 13% 14% last year in the S&P 500. And you would've realized gain of probably about half of that. Anyone you when you were participated. But looking at a safe money opportunities last year and getting 84207%. Return. When you're TV was paying 1%. Without any risk. It's a big difference in my play a part and I think it's right for everybody yet there are certain. I can ways that this can actually. Make you rest a little bit easier during market downturns and so give you some of the upsides.

I'm position with your job we just need to get out wouldn't take that stress off of you and just learn how to manage your your money better since I hope I'm not here to tell people went. Is here to show them. And here's the pros here's the cons this is some rewards for her pushing accurate term little bit. Damage you know that's many many people assess talent then there's folks have their sank. I really should have waited a couple of years especially with my Social Security guarantee you see action money. Now if your health this pork and there's other circumstances I've been applied this. Which we run into all the time. The rules change. And in Social Security you can't take this money with you folks can spend with confidence put.

This person's withholding information because it sounds too good to be true. Probably something yes.
