The Power of Infinite Banking and Building Tax-Free Wealth with Doug Peacock

Doug Peacock had dedicated his life to teaching, diligently putting money aside every month for his retirement. However, when the day finally arrived, he was shocked to discover that he was short a staggering $25,000,000. Sitting down with his advisor, Doug couldn't help but marvel at the red stash of money that represented his shortfall. Reflecting on his career, he couldn't help but think that this conversation should have happened five years earlier instead of just 60 days before leaving the classroom. Despite his unexpected financial setback, Doug now sought to find a new path in life, one that would bring him fulfillment and purpose beyond the confines of teaching.
