Tweetable Quotes:

“We're utilizing these [insurance] policies as a way to enhance what our dollars are doing in between deals. So then when it comes time to leverage them or utilize the capital, we have the entire balance continuing to earn and grow… then very literally, you can borrow against it or collateralize, or leverage it to go invest in the things that you are already going to invest in anyways.” - Blake Brogan

“You, of course, could be building it [life insurance] up for one to three years if you're planning on investing in the future. But this isn't something that's going to restrict any of the active investing that you're going to do.” - Blake Brogan

“Sometimes people will say, Okay, well, that's great. I've built all this money in a life insurance policy. And nothing's gonna happen until I die, right? Well, that's not the case. This also becomes a source of tax-free income in retirement for people.” - Rod Zabriskie
