More About the Author
Kim started in banking and then worked as a financial planner, obtaining Series 7 and 65 licenses and a coveted financial planning certification. But as time passed, she grew frustrated with financial planning practices that seemed irrelevant at best, sometimes even misleading or insane! The projections and assumptions of financial planning gave clients a false sense of security, but no guaranteed results. Typical strategies tended to subject money to more future taxes and put it under the use and control of others.
Worse yet, the system rewarded planners and money managers when they convinced clients to put (and keep) their money at risk! Furthermore, Kim began realizing the math behind some common financial assumptions was flawed.
Driven to find a better way, Kim studied the commonalities between wealth builders. She observed what worked and didn't work in the real world, and found synergy between certain strategies and principles. These common principles later became the 7 Principles of Prosperity of the Prosperity Economics Movement.
In 1999, Kim created Partners for Prosperity, Inc., dedicated to the principles of Prosperity Economics. P4P is a federally Registered Investment Advisory Firm that serves clients in all 50 states.
Kim's work as a non-traditional financial advisor has been recommended by financial thought leaders and authors such as Robert Kiyosaki (Rich Dad, Poor Dad), Tom Dyson, publisher of the Palm Beach Letter investment newsletter, Tom Wheelright (Tax Free Wealth), and Garrett Gunderson (Killing Sacred Cows). She has been interviewed by Robert Kiyosaki, consulted with the Palm Beach Letter, and is a frequent guest on Guide to Financial Peace radio.

Thank God for Prosperity Economic teachers like Kim. Her leadership and this book are a first for consumers, because they are based on truth concepts. I've known of Kim for years, and I've verified these concepts over the last 25+ years, even longer than I've known her.
The book is easy for a consumer to read and understand (It is NOT easy for a traditional financial planner, so don't bother). She divides LYLI into 3 sections: 1. How to Use Your Cash Value, 2. How to Use Your Death Benefit While You Are Living, and 3. A very clear Glossary. Within this framework, she describes 5 phases of owning life insurance from the very first year with real-world examples: The Start-up Phase, Years 1-5; The Leverage Opportunity Phase years: 6-30; Spending Other Assets Phase: Years 20 - 40; Using the Death Benefit Phase (Years 41 - 50); and finally the 5th Phase, Setting Up the Family Bank ( Years 51+). This is an excellent, common-sense approach to personal finance, and it could not come at a better time for you.
Remember: The "first Beneficiary of your Life Insurance policy should be YOU."
People who own, utilize, and live their life insurance love it. Enjoy this book
I think the greatest value this book could offer is as a primer for potential customers that's easy to read, but at $25 a pop, I'm not about to buy a case for sharing.
Final analysis: this books info is good, it's quick, and it's overpriced. Buy Nelson Nash's Becoming Your Own Banker for a few dollars less and get twice the book from the guy that conceived of the method Ms. Butler is re-branding.
Life insurance, properly structured and utilized is without a doubt THE most potent financial tool to create wealth for families, business owners and individuals. In the hands of someone like Kim Butler, who understands it's potential, especially in these turbulent financial times, life insurance comes to life. For those who take the time to understand it's versatility and to appreciate the infinite number of ways that life insurance can be used in everyday life, they soon learn that properly structure and used, life insurance has the potential to become THE most resourceful tool in their financial tool box!
Kim's book is a welcome addition to the increasing clamor for accurate, viable information for those wanting to create, use and maintain wealth without resorting to the gambling in the markets.
