Hi, I’m John Ensley
I’m a Dad, a Grandpa, an entrepreneur, a veteran, an adventurer and a consummate lover of life and liberty.
My mission is to help savvy families and businesses accumulate more wealth and experience maximum safety, control, tax efficiency and privacy in their financial lives.
I am not a certified financial planner. I do not offer “investment” advice or make “buy” or “sell” recommendations for stocks, bonds or mutual funds, other than to recommend that you get out of the rigged Wall Street casino altogether.
I don’t “manage” your money or your retirement plan funds, but I do co-create unique financial strategies with you – to establish a safe haven where your wealth can accumulate safely and predictably over a lifetime.
For business owners or corporate executives, I can help your company implement unique strategies for executive compensation plans, deferred compensation plans, supplemental executive retirement plans, buy-sell agreements, key person coverage and more…
After my company retirement plan imploded during the tech bubble burst of the early 2000’s and then nearly losing everything in the carnage following the real estate and stock market crash a few years later, I came to realize that much of the status quo “financial advice” I received was little more than speculative mumbo-jumbo touted by sharp dressed “planners” with an alphabet of “credentials” after their names. Believing there must a better way, I began an intensive, self-directed, financial education.
Through an online community of successful entrepreneurs, I learned about a unique wealth building strategy using specially structured insurance contracts that was different than anything I had ever come across before. I implemented these strategies in my own life and business and have been sharing them with anyone who will listen ever since.
The strategies I’m referring to have been used by generations of savvy families for well over 150 years. It has been called many names in that time. Whether we call it Bank On Yourself, Infinite Banking, 770 plan, Presidents plan, 101 plan, Cashflow Banking, or anything else; these unique tools and strategies are as powerful (if not more powerful) today as they were a century ago.
After securing insurance licensing and completing an intensive Infinite Banking training program in NYC, I then completed the rigorous Bank On Yourself Authorized Advisor program (I’m one of only 200 authorized advisors worldwide!). I launched J-Ensley Financial in 2012.
I am a member of a new breed of entrepreneur – I’m a digital entrepreneur. That means you won’t find me in a posh office building or fancy conference room. I work with the vast majority of my clients “virtually,” utilizing web based video conferencing and the telephone. When I’m not working from my home office here in Southwest Washington State, my “office” could just as well be a cozy little coffee shop in the Montana mountains, a sailboat in the San Juan Islands or just about anywhere really… Technology can be a wonderful thing!
The key point is that I actually use the very same strategies I recommend to my clients in my own life and business every single day. These strategies have become the financial foundation that empowers me to do work I’m passionate about – and live a life of purpose, meaning and adventure. What can I help you or your business achieve in the coming weeks, months or years?
