[2:53] – What is the Ticking Tax Time Bomb?
- You are on a once-in-a-generation low tax rate environment, yet your country is spending money like it is going out of style. It has created a situation where tax rates going up is predictable

[7:17] – Should individuals be excited about creating wealth, building wealth, and preserving that wealth?
- Everybody should be concerned.
- Some are making great income, but they probably haven’t saved a lot of money yet. Higher rates on their income are going to have less net on their profits
- Some have probably saved, and they will use it to replace their income someday. The money that they are taking out of 401k’s and IRA’s will be fully taxable at whatever the current tax rates are.
[8:22] – What are some of the things you could be doing now?
- Jude and his team have a holistic planning firm wherein they talk to their clients regarding a proprietary process called the Guidance Planning and Strategies Wealth Navigator.
- It takes their clients through a process that looks specifically at taxes. You have to start with understanding the order of money.
- Money flows in 3 Categories, or Tax-Efficient Funnels:
- Pre-Tax Funnel
- Post-Tax Funnel
- Tax-Advantaged Funnel
[13:35] – What is a Roth?
- There are 2 Types of ROTH:
- Roth IRA – the money that you put in is post-taxed dollars, and it is tax-free when you pull it out. There is a limit you can contribute based on your income.
- Roth 401k – Entrepreneurs can establish a Roth 401k. It has no contribution limit based on your income.
- You should have a complete financial plan.
[15:08] – How do you help people specifically in the world of taxes?
- Jude and his team are not CPA’s or Tax advisors; they are a full-service financial planning firm that holistically looks at every aspect of their client’s situation.
- They help their clients by using the Guidance Planning and Strategies Wealth Navigator to perform a thorough analysis to determine where they are now, and where they are going.
- Their clients receive a tax map, and there are 7 steps on the map that allow them to analyze their client’s situation from a taxable perspective
[16:47] – Who is your avatar? What type of specific clients do you work with?
