Episode 216: Building Tax-Free Wealth for the Future, with Shannon Goldsmith and Mike Olson

Shannon Goldsmith is a 3rd generation native Angeleno, Los Angeles REALTOR®, Certified Investor Agent, and member of the Global Investor Agent Team.

She holds a Bachelor’s degree from Arizona State University, is a Certified Pricing Strategy Advisor, Probate Specialist, and Short Sale & Foreclosure Resource.

She is a former corporate slave who later became a real estate agent. She spent a lot of time in the corporate world working for other people until realizing in her mid-’30s that she couldn’t stick with it anymore. Hence, she was able to transition into real estate and also realized that she’s more interested in the investing side of it rather than the traditional one.

Mike Olson is a Partner and original founding member at WealthPoint. Over the course of his 25+ years in the industry, he has developed a strong expertise in working with ultra-affluent families, business-owners and their teams of advisors to help them evaluate, structure and optimize insurance portfolios to fit into their broader financial plan.

He is originally from Akron, Ohio, earned a Bachelor of Science in Finance from Miami University of Ohio and soon after moved to Arizona for the weather.
