What is your vision in terms of money? What are your values surrounding money and debt?
In this week's episode of the Crushing Debt Podcast, we interview our friend and returning guest, Marleta Black about her new book, Say ... Something: The Adventure of Finding the Right Words to Express Your Desires, Reduce Drama and Create Connection.
I read the book and thought it was great - it is broken into bite-size chunks that each have actionable items for you to review, ponder and implement in your relationships, such as:
Say ... Something takes you on a journey, both mentally and metaphorically, and helps you better understand and improve your relationships - with your spouse, your kids, your co-workers, your friends, your peers, and even your money!
You can buy a copy of Marleta's book on Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/SAY-Something-Adventure-Finding-Connection-ebook/dp/B09H7Q1GM9/ref=sr_1_3?crid=1B1610UAYSCWC&dchild=1&keywords=marleta+black+say+something&qid=1635413022&sprefix=Marleta+Black%2Caps%2C175&sr=8-3

If you are ever the target of a frivolous lawsuit, is your stuff protected? What if the lawsuit is legitimate, is your stuff protected?
What happens to your stuff when you die?
This week's guest on the Crushing Debt podcast is attorney Michelangelo Mortellaro, who has been practicing since 2007 in the areas of estate planning and elder law.
In 2020, Michelangelo started Fortress Asset Protection with another attorney to help shield your business from lawsuits and creditors.
In today's episode, we discuss the basics of probate and estate planning law, and why its important to have an estate plan, especially if you own your own business. Then we turn to asset protection and the various tools Michelangelo can use, whether you're an individual, business owner, or investor, to protect what you have from frivolous lawsuits.
Please support our sponsor, Sam Cohen at Attorneys First Insurance. Sam would appreciate introductions to attorneys and title companies all over the country, specifically in Florida and Texas. You can reach him at Sam@AttorneysFirst.com or www.AttorneysFirst.com.

How much due diligence goes into filing bankruptcy? What are the document requirements?
While these are not questions I get from clients too often, they are two of the most important questions when considering a bankruptcy filing. Why? Because failing to do any due diligence prior to filing could get both the client and the law firm (and me) in trouble with the bankruptcy court. And when you get into trouble with the bankruptcy court, it is the FBI that comes knocking on the door!
So what are the due diligence requirements? We provide all of our clients with document checklists, information, and support. In today's episode, I discuss most of the different common types of documents and information we need. Of course, every bankruptcy is factually different, so the list provided in today's episode is just the starting point.
If you have questions about bankruptcy, please let us know or post a comment wherever you listen to this podcast!
We're also excited about Podfest Origins at the beginning of November, LIVE in Tampa, Florida. You can get more information at www.Podfestexpo.com.
In the event an attorney does not do his or her due diligence, we have our sponsor, Sam Cohen of Attorneys First Insurance who handles malpractice coverage for attorneys and title companies throughout the United States but, right now, has a particular focus on Florida and Texas. If you know an attorney or title company in need of professional liability coverage, please refer them to Sam@AttorneysFirst.com or www.AttorneysFirst.com.

Do you buy properties at the foreclosure sale?
Do you buy at the foreclosure sale of the condominium or homeowner association?
If so, you may end up with a property that has no equity AND still be responsible to pay the association every month.
This week's episode is also based on Episode 26 where I discuss lien priority, and is also based on an actual client who bought three association properties at foreclosure sale, for somewhere in the range of $40,000 each, and AFTER the sale learned that each one had a first mortgage in place that eliminated any equity or profit she thought she made when purchasing the properties.
Learn how we were able to help her recoup some of her money, but more importantly learn how we can help other investors avoid this mistake!
Please also refer our sponsor, Sam Cohen, to an attorney or title company you know in Florida or Texas who needs to renew their professional liability insurance. Sam@AttorneysFirst.com or www.AttorneysFirst.com.
Also check out www.Podfestexpo.com for the return of Podfest Origins LIVE on November 4 & 5, 2021 (I'll be participating and speaking if you want to meet up with me).
Finally, my books contain other tips and tricks to help you have more money at the end of the month, rather than more month at the end of the money. www.ShawnMYesner.com/BecomeDebtFree.
