Major Transfers lack Wealth Management

In your everyday existence, you are confronted with transfers of your wealth. You continuously, unknowingly, give or transfer money away. Not only do you give this money away but you also lose the ability to earn money on that money once it is transferred. This compounds your loss. To eliminate or reduce these transfers, you must first learn to recognize them and then understand how directly or indirectly they cost you money. You may have to confront conventional financial wisdom. Remember, the ones giving you these financial programs tend to profit from them. Always ask, who would profit from these transfers? Here is a list of transfers that are worth investigating further:

-Taxes
-Qualified Retirement Plans
-Financial Planning
-Disability
-Credit Cards
-Tax Refunds
