Garrett B. Gunderson: An Exclusive Briefing Detailing Why Most Conventional Financial Advisors Suck

Most of what conventional financial planners tell entrepreneurs about how to grow and protect their wealth is crap.  Okay, so that's not a very polite thing to say.  But it's painfully true.

Otherwise savvy small business owners can be totally stupid when it comes to trusting their money and investment strategies to others.

That is a sermon that Garrett B. Gunderson - who became a multi-millionaire before age 27 - has been preaching from coast-to-coast business pulpits for years and is a core concept in his New York Times groundbreaking bestseller, Killing Sacred Cows.

Garrett, an educator and financial advocate, is the force behind The Freedom FastTrack, a phenominal go-against-the-grain process of building and protecting your wealth that defies conventional wisdom, yet produces extraordinary results.

On this week's Monday Morning Radio, Garrett unloads on commission-obsessed financial planners and explains why chasing interest rates will never produce the phenomenal wealth that comes when you chase your life's soul purpose.

Garrett is interviewed by Wizard Academy faculty member Dean Rotbart and wealth management expert David Biondo.  Dean and David are co-hosts of the weekly Business Unconventional radio news magazine broadcast on 710 KNUS AM in Denver.

Don Kuhl: Superhero of Change

Beneath every small business owner is an optimist who dares to dream big. Facing down challenges comes with the turf. Yet with eyes on the prize, we sometimes forget the importance of getting the little things right. Developing a habit of regularly examining our own choices can be key to success.

Don Kuhl has spent decades studying how small changes can have a major impact on our lives. He’s the founder of The Change Companies, a provider of resources that assist people in making choices that result in positive changes. 

The company’s focus is guiding people to help themselves. “I was vice president of business for a pretty large health company and time and time again it struck me, real change is self change,” he recalls during a recent radio interview conducted with Monday Morning Radio.

Don is interviewed on Monday Morning Radio by fellow Academy faculty member and graduate Dean Rotbart and by David Biondo, a veteran financial planner and successful entrepreneur. Rotbart and Biondo produce Monday Morning Radio and serve as co-hosts in cooperation with Business Unconventional on 710 KNUS AM in Denver.

Michael Milken Says the 21st Century Favors East Asia and Latin America – So Get Prepared

Renowned financier, philanthropist, and medical innovator Michael R. Milken is the featured guest on this week’s special edition of Monday Morning Radio.  

Milken spoke earlier this month in Colorado before a distinguished audience of business and political leaders, outlining for them his thoughts on the rapid and significant changes that legal immigration have brought to America and how the “changing face” of our nation will have enormous impact on business and government policy in the very near future.

Milken notes that worldwide population growth and education patterns make it clear that China, India, and Latin America will be among the key global economic powers for the rest of this century.  If America is to remain competitive, it must invest far more in educating our young people and re-opening our boarders to legal immigrants.

Wizard Academy faculty member Dean Rotbart attended Milken’s speech and had the opportunity to meet privately with the billionaire for 40 minutes following his remarks. 

What Milken has to say – about the forces that are changing the world as we know it – is priceless business intelligence.  

As Rotbart notes at the opening of this week’s audio, portions of Milken’s remarks are difficult to hear.  Rotbart recommends using earphones to capture the clearest possible audio.

Those Monday Morning Radio listeners interested in hearing more of Milken’s insights and influences can also visit www.Chavura.com - a weekly broadcast radio program aimed at the Jewish community – where Rotbart and his son, Maxwell, in an exclusive interview, discuss with Milken how his Jewish roots have influenced his business and philanthropic thinking.

Rotbart and David Biondo, a veteran financial planner and successful entrepreneur, produce Monday Morning Radio in cooperation with their weekly radio newsmagazine, Business Unconventional, which airs each Sunday morning at 8:05 a.m. (Mountain) on 710 KNUS AM in Denver.

Leadership is Not Enough: Leadership with Honor is What Really Counts

Leadership is comparatively easy.  Leading with honor requires men and women of special character and skills.  So says Colonel Lee Ellis (ret.), this week's guest on Monday Morning Radio

Colonel Ellis, an Air Force fighter pilot, spent 5 1/2 years as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam.  He was the youngest POW to be imprisoned along with Senator John McCain at the notorious "Hanoi Hilton."  If leaders can act with honor under those circumstances, Colonel Ellis teaches, they certainly can act with honor as the heads of corporations, small businesses and nonprofits.  

Colonel Ellis is an author and expert in the areas of team-building, executive development and - of course - leadership.  He shares his unique insights with Monday Morning Radio listeners.

Colonel Ellis  is interviewed by Wizard Academy faculty member and graduate Dean Rotbart and by David Biondo, a veteran financial planner and successful entrepreneur. Rotbart and Biondo produce Monday Morning Radio and serve as co-hosts in cooperation with Business Unconventional on 710 KNUS AM in Denver.  Also joining the conversation is Jeff Wilson a small business expert with ActionCoach - Team Empowerment.  Wilson is a regular contributor to B.
