The $40 Trillion Problem: How to Take Full Control of Your Retirement w/Damion Lupo

Most Americans put their money into retirement accounts and believe it will be enough when they need it. They don’t engage with it and it starts to feel a lot like Monopoly money.  

You’re handing your wealth over to a system you don’t know, like or understand. You trust advisors, rely on hope, and never get your cash to truly work for you. 

It’s America’s $40 trillion problem. 

The system is designed to feed off the cash that’s sitting in these retirement accounts. An out of sight, out of mind approach doesn’t work for your wealth – it robs you of opportunity and leaves you with regret. 

Damion Lupo identified this problem and is revolutionizing retirement as we know it. Ultimately, wealth is created when you solve the problems of the 99%. How did his business journey begin at 11? What did he learn from being $5 million in debt? Why is chasing impact the fastest path to cash? 

In this episode, the financial mentor, podcast host, best selling author, and founder of EQRP, shares how he’s fixing retirement and revolutionizing construction.
