I just recorded an inspiring interview with Grammy-nominated contemporary/pop and rhythm and blues recording star – and Bank On Yourself client – Karyn White.
Karyn was in her early 20’s when she became the first female artist to have her first three solo releases hit #1 on the R&B charts. She collaborated with industry legends including Babyface and L.A. Reid, before devoting herself full-time to raising a family.
After an 18-year hiatus, and a fan base that never forgot her, Karyn decided to record again. Only this time she decided to produce her new CD album, Carpe Diem, herself – and pocket the profits the record companies used to make off of her.
In this interview, Karyn reveals:
How she used her Bank On Yourself plan to finance her new CD herself (and why she probably wouldn’t have been able to do it otherwise)
How making the right choices about money puts you in the position of being able to take advantage of opportunities that will inevitably come your way
Have you been disappointed by your 401(k), IRA or other retirement plan? Conventional wisdom tells us these plans are the best way to save and invest for retirement. Yet following this advice has resulted in financial insecurity for most Americans.
Because of this, most baby boomers have been forced to postpone retirement an average of five years.1
I’m often asked how using the Bank On Yourself method to save for retirement compares to traditional plans, so I put together this short video that reveals seven reasons Bank On Yourself makes an excellent retirement plan alternative.

If you’ve ever searched for Bank On Yourself on Google, you’ve probably come across a couple of websites containing threads where posters debate the merits of Bank On Yourself.
One such thread that comes up high in the search results has nearly 200 posts spanning the last year and a half.
On this lively audio podcast, Bank On Yourself founder Pamela Yellen discusses how her toughest anonymous critic on that thread has slowly been coming around.
He now (grudgingly) admits that Pamela is right about many of the points he has been contesting. And, when challenged by another poster about the actual returns people get in the stock market, he even dragged out 29 years of records of his own investing accounts, only to conclude that he is “just an average investor.”

I’m delighted to share this fascinating interview with Carl Richards with you. Carl writes a weekly essay for The New York Times “Your Money” section and has been a Certified Financial Planner for 15 years. His witty sketches have appeared in numerous publications, including the Wall Street Journal, Morningstar and The New York Times.
Over the years, he noticed that the actual real-life returns the average investor gets are dramatically lower than the return of the average mutual fund. He named this phenomenon the Behavior GapTM and began devoting his energy to explaining why the Behavior Gap exists and what constitutes smart investor behavior.
Carl recently shared his surprising insights, tips and strategies with me in an audio interview. I hope you’ll listen to it today – I know you will find it very helpful!
