Hello. I am Rip Yegerman and this is my wife, The Extraordinary Eileen.
Thank you for taking your time to get to know me a little better and understand why I do what I do. I am humbled and grateful.
We live way upstate NY, right by the Canadian border, eh?…in a beautiful passive solar house on 23 acres with a stream running right behind us.
About ten years ago I realized that I was pushing 50. With no savings, retirement, or pension…all-of-a-sudden I had this panic about retirement! I had learned my lesson about putting any money “in the market” with E.F. Hutton years ago, remember him…when E.F. Hutton talks, everyone listens… What they didn’t tell you was that he was saying give me your money and don’t expect it back! Yup…I lost it all. The irony of this was that it was “suppose” to be a “safe, no risk investment” Rob told me. It was suppose to be for my children’s college fund. (They weren’t even born yet) I’ll never forget the day he called me saying that I might as well come get the certificates, they weren’t worth anything anymore! 😮 Thanks…lesson learned!
I couldn’t ever get my mind behind “tax qualified plans.” Why would I put my money, that I owed taxes on, away somewhere that I could not touch, without paying a penalty, and when I could touch it, I was going to owe taxes on it! The tax amount they wouldn’t, or couldn’t, tell me how much it was going to be!? An analogy of that: Would you borrow money from me if I wouldn’t tell you how much the interest rate is or when you were going to have to pay me back? Tax qualified plans, IRA’s, 401k’s, 403b’s, etc…no thanks. I simply did not, nor do I understand why “everyone does it.”
Didn’t we learn our lesson in 2008? People lost HALF of what they had saved up for their retirement. Then all the gurus started telling people not to touch what they had left…to hold onto them…just wait…the market is coming back….???? Wasn’t that just so they wouldn’t lose their monthly commissions? Wouldn’t one have to DOUBLE or make 100% on what they had left JUST TO GET BACK TO WHERE THEY WERE? Has anyone made 100% on their “tax qualified plans” lately? No thanks.
I had debt that I had to get paid off and I had a future retirement that I had to figure out…and it wasn’t looking like I was going to be able to figure it out. I started freaking out!!! I focused…I went on a hunt…I had a mission!!!
The Extraordinary Eileen and I were stressed out. There was way more month than paycheck and we passed the checkbook back and forth hoping that the other would “find” a way to pay all the bills. We argued about money, or lack there of, and ‘how’ we were going to pay all our bills. While I wanted to pay minimums, she wanted to get rid of them and pay more. I had my system, she had hers. Who was right?
Thank God in 2009 things starting coming together for me. I met someone…a group of people actually, who were on a mission. They had the answers that I was looking for. Their mission was “to Free America from Debt One Family at a Time.” A Financial Education and Debt Elimination group that had a “system” that I can only describe as a “financial GPS.” I was so excited but so skeptical. I tried to find the loophole in it, but could not. I was of the mind set that if something is too good to be true…then it probably usually isn’t true. The only way I was going to find the “loophole” was to start using it!
I called Stacey and took the chance that maybe I found something that would do what I expected it to do and what it said it would do.
I’ll never forget The Extraordinary Eileen coming into the office with her beautiful blue eyes full of doubt, but hopeful, and asking; “So…? What do you think? Was it worth it?”
My huge smile was enough to put her at ease. I started showing her how easy it is to use. The quickest way to payoff all of our debt had just become as easy as to just follow the “action plan.” No more guessing or calculating or stressing or arguing. Thank God. Her or me or anyone, just follow the simple action plan…it doesn’t get any easier than that!
So…do you think that after you get your debt under control you might like to think about accumulating some money for your retirement?
Round 2 – Wealth Accumulation. Family banking. A strategy hundreds of years old. No risk. No taxes. Guaranteed growth. Build multi-generational wealth. I am ALWAYS in control of MY money and it is ALWAYS available to me. Singing my song again…but… it sounds too good to be true! My mentors and Coaches are a Godsend.
This one isn’t a point and click my friends. I spent years studying, learning and practicing it. I was so excited, I AM so excited about what it was doing for me, what it IS doing for me and The Extraordinary Eileen, I had to join the mission and share. The more I share, the more I learn, the more I learn the more I share. What a fantastic circle.
I love sharing what I learned…what I learn. Even my members teach me things now and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!! I am changing lives and bringing hope.
The MKMMA taught me how to listen to my heart, how to listen and hear my dream that is calling.

One of the hardest things I have ever had to do was to make the decision to let go of the life I had, 30 years as an Independent Snap-on Tool Dealer, so that I could have the life that I want, helping people.
