February 16, 2017 – You can’t always trust the person, or “messenger” giving you the information. Sometimes, you have to validate the “message” to see if it fits you, and to make sure it’s not “one-size-fits-all.”

 

February 9, 2017 – How many hours of training, study, or experience does it take for someone to become an “expert” in a field? 1,000? 2,000? Well Tony has over 10,000 hours of meeting with people, training, and conducting workshops.

 

February 2, 2017 – The Social Security dilemma: you can no longer file & suspend, but there are other options out there, but yes, they can get very complicated. That’s why Tony and his staff are here to help.

 

January 26, 2017 – Things change; that’s a fact. So, with the previous show talking about goals and resolutions, the thing to remember is that you should expect changes from time to time, and Tony can help you prepare for that.

 

January 19, 2017 – With the start of the new year, do you have any resolutions for 2017? Are you keeping up with them? Tony believes it’s important to cast a vision, or resolution, or goal, for your retirement, and he’d be happy to help you with that.

December 29, 2016 – In Tony’s 32 years in the business, he’s witnessed all types of risk. Hear him discuss these, and how you can avoid them!

 

December 22, 2016 – Can you talk about your advisor like you know them? Or, are they one of these “Fly-By-Night” advisors that tell you to call them, and when you do, you find out they don’t even meet with you, they hand you off to one of their associates?

 

December 15, 2016 – There’s a 2-Trillion Dollar Tax Bill out there getting ready to strike, and starting this year, the oldest “Baby-Boomers” will turn 70 and a half, meaning they will have to take out the Required Minimum Distribution of their accounts.

 

December 8, 2016 – Is the Social Security Administration giving you bad advice? Have you been given misleading information?

 

December 1, 2016 – What your advisor doesn’t know could hurt you.

 

November 17, 2016 – The Financial World wants you to believe two things: One, they believe everyone should believe in and work the same way. Two, that that way should be their way. Tony believes that we all are wired differently; you’re either an Investor, a Speculator, or a Saver.

 

November 10, 2016 – Tony believes it’s OK to speculate with some of your money (if you don’t know what that means, take his free test HERE to see if you have a Speculator personality) but he doesn’t think it’s such a great idea to speculate with your retirement.

 

November 3, 2016 – Tony feels that being independent is something, deep down, we all want in life. However, with people living longer, sometimes they have to depend or rely on others, and they may even outlive their retirement savings. With an annuity, it is possible to set up an income that you can never outlive.

 

October 27, 2016 – Do you understand the stock market? Or do you just “speculate” about it? Do you just throw money at it (or in it) and hope for the best?

 

October 20, 2016 – Pensions were so popular back in the day of Tony’s GrandDad, but those days are long gone. Now, it’s the 401(k), which can be full of taxes and fees that the average “Joe Lunchbox” doesn’t even know about or how to deal with. Tony wants to make sure that doesn’t happen to you by keeping you up to date and informed on how to handle the taxes and fees you have.

 

October 13, 2016 – Part 2 of Tony’s discussion on taxes, which includes the explanation of the 4 Types of Taxation on Assets.

September 29, 2016 – What comes to your mind when you hear the words “The Financial World”? The Stock Market? Well, what is the stock market? What is federal banking? Tony can explain.

 

September 22, 2016 – With having two workshops this past week, Tony was asked a lot of questions. But that’s ok, because he loves it! And he may not offer a free meal, but what he does offer is plenty of free information for you to chew on, think about, and get back with him when you’re ready.

 

September 15, 2016 – While many financial advisors can tell you all about the products they peddle, they can also leave you with a lot of questions. Tony walks you through a process, and answers all your questions, in order to give you peace of mind when it comes to your life savings for retirement.

 

September 8, 2016 – Some people are ignorant about certain financial products; that doesn’t mean that they’re stupid. It simply means that they lack knowledge or understanding, and have questions. One of the biggest areas of ignorance for people is how money is taxed. That’s why Tony has studied and educated himself, so that he can answer those questions.

 

September 1, 2016 – Tony does not completely reject Wall Street; he even has a little bit of money invested. He does, however, realize that he is a saver, and savers do not want to risk all their money in the stock market. To put it simple: savers don’t like risk.

 

August 25, 2016 – Do you remember door-to-door salesmen? They presented you with a commodity, and usually, they had a lot of information about their product, like a specialist, but rarely did they leave you with a card or phone number to reach them if you had any questions about the product you just purchased. Well, when it comes to your money, and your options for retirement, don’t you want someone available to you for any questions or concerns you may have?

 

August 18, 2016 – We’ve all lost loved ones, and many of us have been beneficiaries and received some form of money from someone’s will. The question is this: whose responsibility is it to make sure you receive your money from a will? The insurance companies? Think again!

 

August 11, 2016 – Tony’s GrandDad lived a pretty simple life. He worked for a good company, retired from that company, and enjoyed his pension, or as he liked to call it, “Mailbox Money.” He didn’t have to worry about tax brackets, mutual funds, 401(k), or any other type of retirement plan. And when it comes to Tony’s business, he likes to keep it simple by working with Savers, who are more interested in the return OF their money than the return ON their money.

 

August 4, 2016 – After you’ve worked hard to grow your retirement nest egg over years and years, what is your plan to protect it? How long do you think it needs to last? With Tony’s concept of the “Three Halves of Life,” he can show you how to make adjustments to your retirement game plan.

 

July 28, 2016 – Many of the advisers out there will tell you the same thing: “we all do the same thing.” Not true! With Tony Walker Financial, you’ll see HOW to set up a game plan for your retirement, instead of going at it blindly.

 

July 21, 2016 – Motorcycles: some people see them as “cool,” and fun. Others, like Tony, see the risk and potential danger that comes with them. When it comes to your finances for retirement, don’t you want to talk with someone who can tell you about all the risks that are tied up with the various products that are available?

 

July 14, 2016 – Sometimes, a golf shot starts off looking bad, but ends up good and on the green. And just like golf, the financial world has some products that don’t seem “sexy,” but turn out to be predictable & beneficial.

 

July 7, 2016 – Why do we make things so hard on ourselves? A perfect example would be how some people try to “time” the market; when to buy, and when to sell. And if you don’t “time” it right, it could be disastrous for you.

 

June 30, 2016 – Are you relaxed around a volatile person, or do you walk on egg shells around them? Now think about that when it comes to the stock market. Listen to Tony describe the “7-year-itch” as he likes to call it, and how most people want and need more predictability when it comes to their retirement plans.

 

June 23, 2016 – June 23, 2016 – Things are not always as they appear; listen to Tony discuss the “Rate of Return” on your money, and how you need to know the three types of return on your money.

 

June 16, 2016 – You work hard, you amass “stuff,” but what happens to that “stuff” when (not if) you die? If you’ve never thought about downsizing, listen to Tony discuss a workshop he recently hosted at RobinBrooke Senior Living in Elizabethtown, Kentucky.

 

June 9, 2016 – When it comes to your home’s equity, you may want to rethink some things in order to retire comfortably. Tony can help with that by setting up guaranteed income that you can never outlive.

 

June 2, 2016 – As the golden years of life approach, it is inevitable that changes in life will take place: retirement (of course,) downsizing your home, and many more. Hear Tony’s thoughts on how you can prepare for this stage in life, what he refers to as “The Second Half.”

 

May 26, 2016 – Have you received letters guaranteeing you tons of money, you just have to send in a small amount of money to register & claim it? Sounds great, right, but what’s the catch? The idea of Mailbox Money® is that you receive money in the mail, not the other way around.

 

May 19, 2016 – There are plenty of financial advisers out there that give out the same advice to any and everyone that’ll listen to them. Then there’s Tony, who specializes in helping Savers set up a game plan for retirement. In fact, he created a test that’ll help you decide what your dominant financial personality is!

 

May 12, 2016 – You work hard to get where you are in terms of retirement, but then, the game changes, and what got you there may not work for you anymore.

 

May 5, 2016 – Annuities have become so popular, it seems like everyone is pushing them (Tony calls a lot of them “annuity peddlers”) but do they have a process to take you through? Tony does! Listen to him describe what all is involved in The WorryFree Retirement® process.

 

April 28, 2016 – What exactly is Social Security? What does it do for you and your spouse? What does it promise you? Can you fully rely on it?

 

April 21, 2016 – In today’s fast paced world, there’s more technology, and less “one-on-one” interaction, but that wasn’t always the case. Listen to Tony describe a close relationship with a family member that helped Tony develop his process, The WorryFree Retirement®, and who this process is for.

 

April 14, 2016 – Hard Work & Repetition; these are two qualities Tony attributes to his practice.

January 14, 2016 – The Powerball lottery was at a record high, and everyone was buying a ticket (even Tony’s wife!) Tony has actually worked with lottery winners, who ended up with nothing, because they did not understand the Tax Tumor® buried deep within those checks they received.

 

 

January 7, 2016 – Money is a funny thing; it can affect so many aspects of our lives. It’s also very unpredictable; that’s why Tony encourages Savers to set up a game plan for retirement, so the money is there when you need it.
