The “Groundhog” 401(K) – Hidden Strategies Used by Smart Investors

What you see is a groundhog poking his cute little head up from his burrow…

What you don’t see is the precisely engineered network of tunnels below the surface.

These interconnected burrows are intricately designed to provide a safe, warm, and comfortable life for this chubby little creature.

He plans for everything from soil conditions, risk of floods, quick and easy escape from predators, proximity to food, and comfort.

In reality, he’s living in a well thought out, precisely designed ecosystem that factors in all the threats he’ll face now and in the future.

Your 401(k) and investment strategy connect like the groundhog’s interconnected burrows.

With the right system, you can create an overall investment strategy that balances taxable income now, tax-advantaged income later, and your livelihood in the future.

This special guide is designed to reveal “hidden” benefits of your 401(K) account that may help you supercharge your retirement plan and help you ask the critical questions to uncover opportunities you might be missing.

Inside, you’ll find:

  • The clever “Mega Backdoor” strategy
  • How specific “rollovers” could help optimize your plan
  • The “blended” tax advantages you can access
  • You can continue using the “surface-only” approach most high earners are using.


    You could potentially create the most fruitful ecosystem available, like our groundhog friend.

    One last thing.

    Strategy #3, question 4 is one that is often overlooked by high-income earners.

    It’s common for those with high incomes not to ask this question and it can have ripple effects on your long-term retirement plan.
