Laura Cowan, Esq, founder and owner of The Law Office of Laura E. Cowan in Manhattan, sits down with Simon and talks about why pretty much everyone needs to have an estate plan in place. It's not just about where your money and other assets go but also making preparations for an unforeseen health crisis, what to think about when naming guardians for your kids and what happens to all those user names, passwords and logins when you die. Laura explains the process, but more importantly, brings up issues you may not have thought of but definitely need to consider, regardless of your age or level of wealth.




Ross Karp, founder of 3P Insurance Services and the MNG Networking organization, joins Simon for a discussion about why life insurance is often viewed as a slimy business, how to network in New York City and how not to network in New York City and absolutely nothing about the third thing he does. 





In another companion podcast to a blog post and published article, Simon talks about how waiting before you start an investment plan can cost you heavily and breaks down exactly how much of an advantage can be gained by starting right now.




In a companion podcast to a blog post and Investopedia article, Simon discusses the irrefutabe data that shows why picking individual stocks in which to invest is an inferior and riskier strategy than using index funds and ETFs. This riled up a lot of deluded daytraders!
