First steps for financial security; Life insurance protects retirement

CARLSBAD, Calif. - Californer -- The successful launch of The Financial Playbook Academy has gained a big following among sports fans who want to take control of their finances.  The online course offers a unique approach for sports fans to learn basic money skills and uses sports analogies to make learning as enjoyable as sitting down for a pregame huddle, or an after game film review. Go here to visit The Academy's website.

Stephen Locko, COO of ISN Network, recently spoke with Brian Gilder, a well-respected financial advisor and the founder of the Financial Playbook Academy, to discuss their plans to promote the online course as an aid to anyone who struggles with the basics of personal finance.  ISN reported late last year that financial illiteracy has caused many to ignore important aspects of their finances, with studies showing that 4 out of 10 Americans report they have not yet made plans to save for retirement, and 40% of Americans saying they are under-insured, or have no life insurance at all.

An important first step is considering how to use life insurance now, even before you've sorted out your finances.  Gilder reports that life insurance not only protects income in the short term, but it also provides essential strategies to provide family retirement without the need to set aside big sums for savings.  Life insurance now also offers access to the life insurance benefit for other needs in retirement, such as preparing for home long term care costs, or supplementing retirement savings with tax free cash.

Combining the excitement of sports with the basics of personal finance sets the Financial Playbook Academy apart from other firms because it is independent and unbiased, with objective and simple advice and learning that's geared to the typical American household
