Military Money Show

Oct 1, 2018

In this week's episode of the MilMoney Movement Podcast, co-hosts Lacey Langford and Hank Coleman talk with special guest, Daniel Knopp. Daniel recently transitioned from active duty Air Force to an eight-month sabbatical in an RV touring the country. Now, he is poised to start the second career that he always dreamed of being a financial planner.

We also touch on the sensitive subject of the death of Daniel’s first wife. We talk about how he has turned that tragedy into a positive by helping others with estate planning, navigating the Family Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (FSGLI) life insurance plan, and living his dream by starting his own financial planning practice in the near future. We discuss how collecting the FSGLI benefit actually works and what others might expect out of the process.

Daniel and his wife had the tough conversations early in life as her health was failing. And, she encouraged him to continue pursuing his dreams of leaving the military, traveling, and staring his own Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) business as a financial planner and advisor.

It’s an inspiring story that you won’t want to miss. Money is just a tool to help you accomplish your goals and live out your dreams doing what matters the most to you. And, shows us first hand how to take a tragedic situation and use it as inspiration to help others.

What's on Lacey's Mind

This week, Lacey and Hank are recording the podcast together from the Military Influencer Conference and FINCON18 in Orlando, Florida. And, they talk about, not only the Military Influencer Conference but also the many incredible things members of the military, veterans, and military spouses are doing. At the conference, you could find entrepreneurs with clothing and jewelry lines, social media influencers, freelancers, small business owners, and everything in between. It was an inspirational sight to see so many current and former members of the military community who have transitioned or working to into some pretty amazing endeavors. And, as a special treat during the What’s on Lacey’s Mind Segment, Daniel Kopp sticks around to add to the discussion as well.
