One of the thorny research projects which I'm personally undertaking is to study the most effective ways to invest my money and my life into my local community without passing through the financial services intermediaries.

Friends, it ain't easy.

Our entire world is wired to go through the mainstream banking/investment/etc. industry. And it's not easy to break free.

But, I'm convinced that it is possible.

So, I'm working on it.

And today, I've invited a new friend of mine on the show to explain how he does it.

Tim Yarbrough is an entrepreneur and investor from Alabama who has been in business for over 40 years. He has personally invested in dozens of companies there in his community.

Today, he shares his wisdom from 40 years of experience with you and with me.

Enjoy!

Today we continue our health insurance series with a discussion of the Premium Tax Credit.

The Premium Tax Credit is available for those whose income is between 100% and 400% of the Federal Poverty Level who purchase their health insurance through a government-run marketplace.

The dollar amounts involved can be substantial if you're in that range.

Pay attention,

Today I've invited real estate investor Joe Fairless on the show. And yes, we chat about real estate.

But, I don't have him on to speak about real estate exclusively.

Rather, I want you to pay careful attention to how he got into real estate in the first step.

Pay attention to the arc of his overall career.

And then model him.

Today, I share my thoughts on the Trump/Clinton election and connect it with a discussion of why I'm philosophically and morally opposed to Obamacare. (Hint: it's not because I hate sick people.)

In case you haven't heard, this Presidential election is the most important one in your lifetime. And, it will retain that title until November 9 when the 2020 election will take over as reigning champ.

Not only is this the most important election of your lifetime, but if the wrong person is elected, we literally face the end of the world as we know it!

So, what are you to do?

Well, today's show contains my thoughts and advice around presidential politics as well as 10 things you can do that will actually make a difference after you've cast your vote for President of the United States.

Today we embark on our journey through the wild and woolly world of health insurance.

This topic is utterly frustrating to navigate and incredibly divisive in philosophy.

Obviously, it's a perfect topic for Radical Personal Finance!
