Linda Yao was born in Taiwan, Taipei into a family of five who lived in a one-bedroom University of Taiwan duplex with no amenities. She recalls sleeping with her grandmother and sister in a curtained-off area in the living room, while her parents and brother slept in the bedroom. The toilet was just a hole in the floor, and it was next to the kitchen. They bathed in a lean-to her dad built against the nearby banana fermentation warehouse.
While her story started similar to many in her age group from Taiwan, Linda attributes much of her financial success to the decision to buy a few helpful wealth-building products that forced her to save monthly amounts of cash she wasn’t able to withdraw easily.
It wasn’t always like that: Linda didn’t become interested in managing her money until she was in her 40s. Yet, she was able to reach financial independence, enjoy a very comfortable retirement, and very passionate about helping parents and grandparents to gain the confidence to manage their money, save, and pay less tax.
She is focused on helping them in building wealth for future generations to leave a sizable
legacy effortlessly by following a few simple steps.

Very enjoyable, thought-provoking, and inspiring presentation, with real-life examples and tips, interesting and relevant TED talk videos, and additional resources and books I will be exploring on my own. My favorite takeaways from Linda’s presentation: - What is your WHY? Ask that for all aspects in your life! - You are what you think about. - Change your mind, change your life! - Get comfortable to be uncomfortable (e.g., public speaking). - Is the action I am taking now in alignment with my dreams or sabotaging my life with every move? - Be humble - Empty your cup (e.g., be open to learning)

Excellent presentation on Universal Life Insurance. Terrific insight into a field that most people overlook or is just for individuals who are recently deceased. I definitely learned something new.

I enjoyed the instructor's openness about her own fraud encounters and her humour . She was entertaining...I laughed out loud a few times. Note that there area few typos in her presentation.

Overall I felt the webinar was very interesting, supplementing theory with actual real examples. The use of polling was effective at keeping me engaged.
