Retirement Income Store


Helping Retirees with a SOUND INCOME APPROACH

Bestselling Amazon Author, TV Host, and Founder, David J. Scranton opened Sound Income Strategies in 2014. A nationally known thought-leader, David Scranton is frequently sought out to share his financial insights on news outlets such as Bloomberg, CNBC, Fox News, Fox Business, and World-Wide Exchange. 

In addition to his own national media appearances, David can be seen each week with top financial celebrities on his own TV show on Newsmax, called The Income Generation with David J. Scranton—which has been on the air for over two years. Originally broadcast to 55 Million (Now over 70 Million) households each Sunday at 10 AM, David invites financial pundits like Steve Forbes, Mohamed El-Erian, and Nobel Laureate Robert Shiller to join him on his show to discuss the financial topics of the day—focusing on those issues most important to Americans over the age of 50,

With over 100 episodes completed, and David beginning to appear on other networks as a financial fixed-income specialist, David receives inquiries and comments from Americans every day. 

Beyond educating the public each week, the goal of David J. Scranton’s life work is to have more than 7 out of 10 Baby Boomers understand and accept his message that you do not need to sacrifice Total Return in order to lower your risk in the markets and be able to build a plan you won’t outlive. There is a better way—and that is Investing for Income. By focusing on bond and bond-like investments, one can generate approximately five percent (5%) WITHOUT sacrificing or risking their entire portfolio in the markets.

Sound Income Strategies is now offering the opportunity for financial advisors around the nation to become franchisees of this proven and effective business plan under the name The Retirement Income Store®.

Investing for Income is Similar to Investing in Rental Properties

David has always thought about it this way. Younger people who get involved in the real estate market tend to buy and flip homes to make a profit. These investors depend on and hope for the value of their property to grow or appreciate—which can be very risky depending on market conditions. These types of investors must get several things exactly right in order for their investments to pay off. They have to buy at the right time, they need to invest in the right place, and they need to sell at the right time in order to make a profit. These investors are focused on growth to build their net worth for the future. 

This is similar to those who depend on stock market growth, or appreciation, to cover expenses. They must get several things exactly right in order to have a chance for a successful retirement. 

Instead, consider older Americans who might see real estate investing as a way to establish a renewable source of income. These investors are more concerned with buying a property they can rent out that will create reliable and predictable cash flow. They have the ability to worry less about any changes in the value of their property, and instead are more concerned about how much rent, or income, they can collect on a regular basis. 

That’s why David is so passionate about Investing for Income: because in retirement you need a predictable and reliable source of income. 

So why, then, do so many retirees still place their hopes in the stock market?

Since many Baby Boomers first got serious about investing during the 80s and 90s in what was the best stock market in US history, many became accustomed, and even addicted, to the double-digit growth that became common in those days. As a result, many also began to mistakenly believe that “growth” and “return” mean the same thing, but the reality is that growth is just one component of return; income is the other. 

So, What’s So Different about The Retirement Income Store®?

It’s the middle name… Income.

It all started in 1999 at Scranton Financial Group in Connecticut, when David Scranton decided to stop following the crowd and changed his business model from one focused on the “G” to one focused on the “I”. 

David Scranton has taken the time over the years to carefully strategize, plan, and cultivate what he would need in order to launch a wildly successful Franchise in the investment world. That includes a distribution force of 40 Income Specialists in 19 states who have been mentored by David since 2006, and who have become well-known Income Specialists in their own right in their state, region, or territory. Many of his mentees from his Business Coaching Organization, Advisors’ Academy, are now national names themselves, and many now run their own million-dollar practices. 

Through the years, David has scoured the country to find the very best business coaches and marketing specialists to help develop and implement the lead-generation and posturing programs that have achieved results you simply cannot find anywhere else. 

Approximately half of our top producers have their own radio show, close to one-third have Amazon Hot New Releases in books, and all our top producers are receiving leads each and every month with coaching that helps increase their production by at least 33% in the first year.

Now, nearly 20 years later, from its home base in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, The Retirement Income Store® has perfected its business model and is ready to launch nationally with the goal of expanding to all 50 states.

On our mission to have a Retirement Income Store® in all 50 states, The Retirement Income Store® franchise can fill the void that consumers feel every time they contemplate the complexities of retirement. Our model offers a path for you and a path for your clients, all without sacrificing your independence and without having to reinvent the wheel. 

The brand will be focused on professional owner/operators who invest, own, and operate the Retirement Income Store® brand and philosophy in the same communities where they have already established roots and built their financial planning practices.

A Stand-Out in the Investment Landscape

David Scranton is also the founder of the Scranton Academy for Financial Education, a non-profit educational foundation. With a leader such as this serving as the cornerstone, The Retirement Income Store® has received national recognition and will continue to expand its reach and market penetration. 

With the tremendous success of 40 offices in 19 states as evidence of the marvelous potential of his business model, David Scranton has decided it’s time to share it with those outside of his inner circle and national network of advisors. 

The Retirement Income Store® is now ready for you to begin the process of sharing these life-changing strategies with retirees through our franchise program.

The current landscape that retirees find themselves in can be one of volatility and increasing uncertainty. A few financial shows predict a correction, if not a recession, in the near future with geopolitical issues looming large in 2020. 

Uncertain stock market conditions, interest rate fears, and other factors have contributed to retirees finding themselves in murky waters. Not only this, but the need for a continued cash flow for the Baby Boomer generation is on the rise as life expectancy lengthens and new goals sprout up. Long gone are the days of working for the same company for 40 years and retiring with a pension plan and gold watch. 

Now, 60-somethings are searching for new opportunities, seeking degrees in higher education, and taking on brand new career goals instead of retiring. The Retirement Income Store® is here to walk alongside those goals with solid advice and income-generating investments. The need is there, and The Retirement Income Store® is here to meet those needs.

Beginning at its roots in Connecticut and today headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, The Retirement Income Store® is ready to start the process of franchising in population-dense areas across the country. The franchise is designed to offer a full and complete fixed-income solution to individuals as they plan for retirement or to those already retired.

Total Return = Income + Growth

Many on Wall Street use these terms synonymously, and advisors with stock market-based business models will tell you that investing for growth is the only way to get a reasonable return on your investments. That is simply not true.

When Investing for Income (I), it’s important to understand that the “I” portion comes in the form of both interest and dividends, while growth is simply measured in terms of capital appreciation. 

When you invest for the “I”, you’re typically investing your money in investment vehicles designed to significantly reduce volatility. However, when you invest for Growth (G) in the stock market, that “G” you are counting on to cover expenses during retirement can quickly turn into an “L” (Loss) when the stock market suffers a major downturn—like the ones that began in 2000 and again in 2007.

As mentioned earlier, just because you’re Investing for Income doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice total return. In fact, many of Sound Income Strategies’ clients have been able to create ongoing income streams in the form of interest and dividends, sometimes as much as 5%, while protecting the principal balance of their retirement savings.

So, if an investor can get 5% from Growth or Income, most would prefer to get it from Income because the “I” is more predictable and consistent. When you earn income it can’t be taken away, but when you get growth, the “G” can quickly turn into an “L” depending on market conditions.

Now that David has been able to help so many clients, along with the hundreds of advisors he’s mentored nationwide through his Business Coaching Organization, Advisors’ Academy, he’s looking to take the Investing for Income movement national with his message—there is a better way. 

Sound Income Strategies is now offering the opportunity for financial advisors around the nation to become franchisees of this proven and effective business plan under the name The Retirement Income Store®.
