What’s The New Refinance Tool That Will Change Your Investment Portfolio?

Posted by Kevin Clayson Monday, 14 September, 2020


I recently wrote a Forbes article about refinancing, which inspired the topic of this week’s episode. Allow me to set the stage real quick.


Most people think of refinancing as an expense, where the focus is on giving away money rather than earning it. Steve and I find this perspective to be incredibly limiting. 


That is why we propose a subtle shift.


Kevin Clayson Quote on Refinancing Your Credit


To make the distinction, we use the term ROI refinances, and this tiny little reframe makes all the difference.


What we’ve done is we took the most common understanding of the concept, and we flipped it on its head. In doing so, we’re effectively turning from a negative mindset to a positive one.


Looking at refinances like investment opportunities is incredibly useful for replacing your income. It’s one of the easiest ways to get a great return on your investment, and we’re going to explain just why that is so, step by step in today’s episode.


Many of us often approach financial topics from a mindset of scarcity. But just making that little mindset shift can open up a whole new world of opportunities.
