Montrose, CO – March 28, 2017 – Troy West, originator of The Retirement Myth, was recently a featured guest on Hollywood Live. The show was filmed by an Emmy Award winning crew in the penthouse of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel that overlooks Hollywood Blvd, in Los Angeles, California.

The Retirement Myth and how it affects you:

Troy West, with extensive background in financial consulting, personal development, and social science combined his expertise to originate The Retirement Myth Concept, that is, the branding of “retirement” by large companies (financial and nonfinancial) and the government to influence how everyday people use time, money, and passion.

West has exposed that Americans are not living a better lifestyle due to the fact they are institutionalized to believe they must defer time, money, and passion to “someday live the way they want to” by how strongly influential the concept of retirement has become. West acknowledges that “Retirement is no bad per se. In fact, who would not want to be financially free? The problem is in how retirement is branded to allow large companies and the government to optimize our time and money for themselves and why we are often times feel like we do not have adequate security, control, and options in the way we live our lifestyle.”

What West explains is happening in America is that everything from tax codes, legislation, the banking system, financial products, company benefits, etc. are designed for institutions to control our time, money, and passion. This is not to say we will not benefit in some cases, however, the point is that the institutions come first, we come second. Because of this relationship, we pay the consequences. The scary parts are that the system is setup this way and that many times so much money, time, and passions are lost without even getting a glimpse of how life could be so much different.

Troy West and his network of financial professionals, ranging from financial consultants, investments advisers, insurance agents, bankers, CPAs, attorneys, college planning and business consultants, seek to flip the script in your favor so you do not have to defer time, money, and passion and can live your lifestyle today. West and his team provide complimentary consultations to formulate the lifestyle you want and systematically reverse engineer “lifestyle financial blueprints” that build a foundation for security and advance forward to aligning time, money, and passion, and optimizing lifestyle.
