More About the Author

Kim D. H. Butler is a leader in the Prosperity Economics Movement, which offers an alternative to "typical" financial planning. A recognized expert on whole life insurance, financial strategies and alternative investments, she is the author Live Your Life Insurance, Busting the Financial Planning Lies, and Busting the Retirement Lies.

Kim started in banking and then worked as a financial planner, obtaining Series 7 and 65 licenses and a CFP® designation. 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.

This book is a short read with concentrated information on different types of life insurance policies. Better than that, it shows creative (even surprising!) ways to use certain types of insurance to build tax-deferred or tax-free growth of your money. It describes ways to enhance your life at every stage of adulthood. In other words, using the policy for financial benefit while you are alive, not only for a payment to your family at the time of your passing. Hence the word "live" in the title. It's a complicated subject, but the author breaks down the concepts into understandable chunks and explains each step. She also describes the different actions and benefits to take at each stage of life: 20-40, 41-50, and 50+. I was particularly intrigued by learning how to use one kind of policy, in conjunction with specific financing on a home, to live a more fun and comfortable life after retirement - and still leave my heirs with more assets and no debt! If Kim ever writes a revised edition, I'd sure like to see some graphics to help demonstrate the concepts but this is a great expose` on the principles as-is.

Kim Butler's book is fabulous. She clearly presents you with the little known fact that "the first Beneficiary of your Life Insurance policy should be YOU." It is likely the most under-utilized opportunity in personal finance to increase your cash flow. You read that right: you don't have to die to use properly-designed Life Insurance! It's not about just borrowing from your cash value, you don't sell your policy to someone; none of that here. She clearly gives you some tools and concepts you'll want when you look to utilize a non-traditional financial planning approach, hopefully very soon.

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

Bobby

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'll give credit to the author for distilling a great savings and personal finance tool to a VERY quick read, but having read other books on the subject such as Bank on Yourself, Becoming Your Own Banker: Unlock the Infinite Banking Concept, The Wall Street Alternative etc, there are plenty of other books out there that provide the same information with more depth and often for less money overall (and certainly less per page!).

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.

Format: Paperback
One would be hard pressed to find another person on the planet with more working knowledge of the power of whole life insurance and the plethora of uses for this most underappreciated and often abused financial tool than Kim Butler. Kim's book provides specific examples of the benefits of whole life as a living contract where the owner is the first beneficiary of the product.

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.

Format: Paperback
A short, but very powerful description of one of the most intriguing strategies for keeping your money safe, while at the same time growing it for retirement. Kim Butler has introduced whole life insurance to the reader as a flexible financial tool that can enhance one's life, rather than a necessary-evil type of expense. In fact, whole life insurance turns out to be a profound good. She shows that a person's family can not only count on the death benefit, but the policy and its cash value can be of benefit during life in myriads of ways that we don't usually associate with life insurance. The comparison between a Prosperity Couple and a Poverty Couple was telling. It really demonstrates the power of using this concept while you're living. And the list of so many different ways to use a policy was very surprising. This is certainly a timely message for those who want a rest from the market's ups and downs, and who want to finally get a good night's sleep. Looks like a solid answer to today's scary economic picture. Very well done.
