About the Host

Matt Franklin

Host

I've been self-employed for 15 years, and currently in "pre-tirement." After appearing on Shark Tank for one of my businesses, I've spoken to hundreds of entrepreneurs, and one thing I've noticed that's almost universal is that we're woefully unprepared for retirement.

I've been obsessed with investing and retirement planning for the last five years, and through my research, along with some good (and bad) decisions, I've been able to shave almost 10 years off my working life.

If you're self-employed and you want to retire sooner, wealthier and happier, this podcast is for you. We're not going to talk about the traditional 60/40 portfolio that leaves you stuck with the 4% rule for the rest of your life. We're going to talk about investing in cash-flowing assets to blow up your returns. We'll also cover tax-reduction strategies, asset protection, macroeconomics and other financial goodness, along with other info you need to know as you approach retirement, including social security, medicare, travel, health, longevity and more.
