What Does Being Your Own Bank REALLY Mean?

what does byob mean for your money, being your own bank

Being Your Own Bank Mean…

taking control of your money outside of Wall Street and replacing conventional thinking[1].

It is a way to manage your money in which you build up cash value in a well-designed life insurance policy[2].

Here are some steps to become your own banker:

1. Realize what the phrase means. It signifies a huge paradigm shift in your thinking that puts you in the control seat of your money, rather than Wall Street[1].

2. Choose the right insurance agent & company from which to become your own banker. Specific life insurance policies and companies work better than others. It’s critical that you find the right agent[1]. {Yes, that would be me. Contact info at the end of the post}

3. Take out a whole life insurance policy on yourself if you can qualify medically for it. If not, we can discuss other types of monetary instruments that will protect and build your wealth[6].

4. Build up cash value in your policy by making premium payments[2]. Everyone should be taught this from an early age!

5. Borrow from your policy when you need money, and pay yourself back over time[4]. Yes! Forget traditional banks. You can be your own bank.


You may or may not have hear of the concept of being your own bank. It’s also known as “infinite banking” or “banking on yourself”[3][5].


It is designed to mitigate your dependency on banks and reduce the amount of interest you pay[3].

However, many will tell you it’s mostly only for the wealthiest people, as it requires significant expenditures early on in life in order to reap the benefits later on[3]. That is not entirely true… which is where a very savvy insurance agent becomes your best friend.

Does being your own banker cost more than other life insurance policies. Mostly, the answer is yes. Why? Because you are using this money vehicle as a living benefit for your money. You’re not using it as a beneficiary vehicle to pass on money.

It has everything to do with how and why you are investing in this life policy. AND… being your own bank can really only be done with a cash value life insurance policy. Call me to discuss it.

Borrow from your policy when you need money, and pay yourself back over time[4].

It’s important to note that infinite banking is not a scam, but it is not the right financial choice for everyone[4].

It requires significant premium payments to a whole life insurance policy.
