When people talk about asset protection, very rarely does a conversation come up on how a young person with not much wealth can protect their assets. Truth be told, asset protection is important to everyone, no matter how little you have. Andrew discusses what threats a young person should be aware of and how to properly prepare based on those threats. The threat of government taking your money away is always a possibility, but how real is that to you? How real is it that you’d get sued? These are just some of the things you have to take into consideration.
