Ep 106: Make Your Own Money Rules with Chris Naugle
If your hard-earned cash is sitting in the bank, you’re not wealthy like you think you are, because real wealth is in constant transit. This is according to Chris Naugle, this episode’s special guest. As a money mogul, Chris’s mission is to change the way you think about money, and more importantly, how you use it. Today, Chris talks about his path to riches, sharing anecdotes about his tough upbringing and his early business aspirations as a child. After chatting about how he went from opening a retail store to climbing the ladder on Wall Street, Chris tells us about how the dotcom crash and housing crisis of the naughties rendered him hopeless. Stay tuned, and you’ll hear about his North Star — or how a three-day real estate event gave him a new perspective on money. Later, you’ll hear about how he had to unlearn everything he was taught on Wall Street and why he needed to start using money differently. Chris goes on to share the secrets of the wealthy, touching on the necessity to keep your money moving, and why you should be your own bank. As he explains, the root of his success lay in investing his money in whole life insurance. He tells us about the pros and cons of using this form of privatized banking with real-world case studies and reminds us to always use his CPC model — clues, patterns, choices. To get a grip on your money, be sure to tune in today!
