Everywhere we looked last week, we were bombarded with images and memories of a world gone mad — not just in the Middle East and Ukraine, but right here in America, as we observed the 13th anniversary of 9/11.
But today, let’s set the geopolitical discussion aside and devote this time to a quiet and brief chat — to bring our thoughts closer to home and to talk about your own future.
After contemplating her available alternatives — and those of anyone planning or in retirement — one reader recently asked me:
Which “solution” do you choose, Dr. Weiss:
Ridiculously low yield or ridiculously high risk?
My answer: Neither, of course. But I fully understand where she’s coming from.
Nearly everyone is familiar with the Faustian choices we face today, including me — and I trust, you as well.
Choice A. You’re expected to lock up your money in a bank CD or something equivalent. But even if you have a nest egg of say, $500,000, and even if you could find a bank that gives you 2% interest, all you’d see in yearly income is a meager $10,000.
That’s a total nonstarter.
Choice B. You go for a high-risk strategy of some kind or you get caught in a bear market. Suddenly, your principal is gutted in half. You’ve lost $250,000. And NOW, at this late juncture, you feel compelled to go for choice A, earning those 2% yields on your remaining capital.
Result: You have to somehow manage with $5,000 in interest income per year. And at that snail’s pace rate, it would take 50 long years for you or your heirs to restore just the nominal value of your original nest egg.
But what if you could multiply the size of your nest egg seven fold in less than 10 years … and then continue to build it at a similar pace?
THEN, you’d have a way to escape those absurd Faustian choices.
Then, you could realistically do more than just “survive” retirement.
Then, you’d have a plan capable of giving you the richer, more secure retirement you deserve.
Many of my friends and readers are going to discover this plan with me starting at 12 noon Eastern today. That’s when I begin my 3-part series to reveal my own personal strategy — one I feel has the potential to do all this for you.
I personally built this strategy to help you overcome the great retirement conundrum that you now face.
It could have multiplied your portfolio more than seven times over with a 613% return. That’s more than four times better than Warren Buffett has done with Berkshire Hathaway.
Unfortunately, if you haven’t signed up to attend, the deadline has now passed. However, the video will be posted online this afternoon, so watch your inbox for details.
Good luck and God bless!
