So recruiters know how to make a lot of money. How to save money and build wealth? Uh, not so much. Ask a recruiter about their financial plan and their eyes glaze over, ask them when they want to retire, and they look at you with a mixture of sympathy and wonder…retirement is something that happens to other, O-L-D people…! But the facts are chilling. NW Mutual says only 25% of Americans have 200K in retirement savings. And the average person at retirement has 85K! And recruiters ain’t average. They just think they’ll keep closing deals! Forever!

Danny tried for years to educate his recruiters on the benefits of 401K plans, Roth IRA’s, Real Estate…etc. And it was like giving them Ambien. He often had to carry them back to their desk.

So in this podcast Danny talks to a legit Guru and Wall St legend about how to get the message across. You will, one day, need to retire, and young people will be in retirement for 20-25 years due to increasing life spans. Will you have enough money? This real world, no nonsense, no holds barred conversation could help!
