Podcast Transcript:


Intro / Outro: Ok, Suze. Are you ready for today's podcast?


Intro / Outro: Oh, you bet I am because I'm unstoppable


Intro / Outro: Music In.


Suze: September 10th, 2023. Welcome everybody to the Women and Money podcast as well as everybody smart enough to listen. So obviously, this podcast has been prerecorded because why? We, KT and myself happen to be in right now in Spain, actually


Suze: in Santiago to be exact, which is where the Camino ends. So if you don't know what the camino is, look it up, it's a fabulous thing that all of you should do, but I have no doubt that we are having the absolute time of our lives, being with our really, really great friends, Joyce, Lithia, Samantha Fabulous. We can't wait to see them all.


Suze: So Suze School, I want to begin with what I consider a seriously exciting announcement


Suze: over the years that Alliant Credit Union has sponsored the Women and Money Podcast. One of the most popular savings programs that we have ever offered is the ultimate opportunity, savings account.


Suze: And so many of you have participated in it over the past. And for those of you who haven't yet participated in the ultimate opportunity savings account, it's not too late. You can still do it if you want to


Suze: so often you would write me and say, Suze, this is such a great savings opportunity that Alliant Credit Union is offering. Why can't we do it for our kids as well? Well, guess what, as of September 10th, 2023


Suze: Alliant Credit Union is opening the Ultimate Opportunity Savings Account for kids and teens. Now, listen to me closely if you don't know what the Ultimate Opportunity Savings account is. It's very, very simple.


Suze: You go to my alliant dot com. You open up an account, it doesn't cost you anything. You put in $100 a month for 12 consecutive months and at the end of those 12 months, you get $100.


Suze: If you already have an Ultimate Opportunity Savings Account, then you automatically qualify to be able to open up one for your kids and your teens. If you don't have one, then for you to be able to open up one for your kids. Guess what? You have to open up one for yourself as well.


Suze: Now it is true that there are two different types of kids accounts for your kids who are 12 and under. It will just be for a savings account for your kids who are 13 through 17, the teens. They will be opening up a checking account with a savings account because that will really prepare them for later on in life. And again, it works identical


Suze: to the Ultimate Opportunity Savings Account that all of you have loved so much. What's really important that you understand is that this opportunity isn't going to be here forever when it comes to your kids. It goes away. December 31st 2023. So I am asking all of you to make finances a family affair


Suze: where you go to my alliant dot com. You click on kids savings accounts if you already have an Ultimate Opportunity Savings Account and if you don't then just click on Ultimate Opportunity Savings account. It's right there when you go to my alliant dot com.


Suze: If you have many kids, just keep coming back to kids' savings account, click on that and open up an account for every kid that you have. I've been waiting to do this for a very, very long time and now guess what,


Suze: we have done it. So thank you Alliant Credit Union because you know, we all know how important it is for us to teach our kids good money habits to hopefully educate them enough so that they get as much pleasure out of saving as they do spending. And the only way they're able to do that is through the habit of depositing money every single month.


Suze: Now, maybe they can only come up with themselves $10 a month. It's all right. Match it for them, do whatever you can,


Suze: but don't miss out on the $100 a month for 12 consecutive months. So you get that extra $100. It is worth it, it is worth it. It is worth it. Once again, just go to my alliant dot com. And at the end of this podcast, Robert will give you an entire list of exactly everything that you need to know.


Suze: Ok. Now one other announcement,


Suze: so many of you have been asking me, where are the Must Have Documents we want to buy? The Must Have Documents


Suze: and truthfully Hay House who manufactures the Must Have Documents , took them off the market for sale so that they could update them, they can make them easier for you to use


Suze: to understand to get help with. Plus they have a whole new set of lawyers that have redone. The documents have looked at the documents have different advice about the documents so that it's totally updated. And I am so excited to announce that as of today, those must have documents


Suze: are back on sale. All you have to do is go to must have docs, that's m-u-s-t-h-a-v-e-d-o-c-s dot com and that is where you can buy them. Now, what you have to understand, I love educating you more than you have any idea on why I think that it is an absolute must


Suze: that every one of you should have, these must have docs, a living revocable trust, a will, an advanced directive durable power of attorney for health care, as well as a power of attorney for finances.


Suze: And because of technology today, Hay House was able to program


Suze: and bring this alive for all of you


Suze: So again, these are legal documents created by lawyers, not by myself, not by Hay House, but by lawyers. They're good in all 50 states and they are seriously easy to use. So if you go to musthavedocs.com,


Suze: you will see that they are on sale there for $99. But here is what the good news is Hay House, through their generosity is allowing you to share the activation code that you will get when you purchase these documents with your relatives, your loved ones, people that you care about. Who does that


Suze: a company that really cares about you.


Suze: Next, they have programmed these documents so that every time you come back to use them, it's not gonna cost you anything.


Suze: Now, typically these four must have documents. If you went to see a lawyer in most of your situations, it would cost $2500 who has that kind of money?


Suze: But here again, for $99 you get to share it with people. And every time something in your life changes, you get to come back and update your situation for absolutely free. Oh, you went to a lawyer, $500 to change something, maybe $1000.


Suze: Also for those of you, Hay House wanted me to tell you for those of you who already have the Must Have Documents, don't worry when you go back online, your program will be automatically updated for you.


Suze: And this program I've been told is really state of the art. There's online help, there's everything that you could want from email, talking to somebody to be able to ask a question right at the section that maybe you're stuck at.


Suze: So it has been revamped, reprogrammed everything for you. So I really, really hope that you take advantage of it.


Suze: Now, I'm making this a very short podcast and the reason is because I'm in Spain right now as you know, but these were two announcements that I am so excited about. I can't even tell you because both of these things, whether it's the Ultimate Opportunity Savings Account with Alliant Credit Union or the Must Have Documents with Hay House,


Suze: your family needs to educate your kids and to make sure that you protect your kids, your assets yourself and everybody else. So I call these two things, the dynamic duo.


Suze: So are you gonna take advantage of it? I hope so.


Suze: But there's really only one thing that I want you to say every single day and it is as follows today, wherever I go, I will create a more joyful, peaceful and loving world. And if you do that


Suze: and you take advantage of the Ultimate Opportunity, Savings Account for yourself as well as your kids and you get the Must Have Documents at must have docs dot com.


Suze: I promise you you will be unstoppable.
