How to Avoid Ruining Retirement
Wealth seems to be everyone's dream; the ability to relax a little more, to not stress so much about finances and to enjoy the "good life." So often it is believed that wealth is only attainable by those with large incomes. Those with smaller incomes may not put anything aside, assuming such small savings won't make enough of a difference in the long run. In my experience in the financial services industry, there were several times when I would help an elementary school  Read More>>>

Retirement Planning for Seniors
Planning and saving for a comfortable retirement is something that takes time. Some Americans save for decades leading up to their golden years. Most, however, seem ill-prepared until retirement draws nearer. It was estimated in 2011 that an individual would need $1.1 million saved to retire comfortably. But more than half of workers reported they had saved less than $25,000, a mere 2.3 percent of the target. Fortunately, it is never too late to begin planning for the future. But if  Read More>>>

Kick Start Your Retirement Nest Egg
If there's one thing I've learned to regard as the gospel truth since I started in the financial planning industry 5 years ago, it's the fact that people my age (20-something) need to be extra-vigilant when it comes to saving for retirement. Why? Unlike previous generations, the retirement burden for today's 20- to 30-somthings will fall solidly on our own shoulders. Consider the current environment we're facing: Social Security is under-funded, and the funding gap will  Read More>>>

Transitioning into Retirement
The retirement "zone" If you're considering retirement within the next five years or so, you're in the retirement "zone."

Challenge Your Mind in Retirement
You have probably heard people say that the best way to keep your mind sharp after retirement is to exercise it. This "use-it-or-lose-it thinking" is the subject of much debate.

The brain works by sending messages across nerve connections. The more we use and reinforce those connections,  Read More>>>

I hear so many retirees say they are bored. This sentiment also takes the form of, "I don't have enough to do to fill my time." If you are bored or you find yourself with far too much spare time, you are not alone. There are two main types of responses to boredom or lack of purposeful activity: depression or intentional effort to try new things. I always encourage people to try to come up with a combination of activities that are fun, good for you and good for others. As you know,  Read More>>>

Spring Cleaning in Retirement
You may remember spring cleaning the way I do. Everything was scrubbed, scoured, dusted, cleaned and aired. Today spring cleaning isn't always done as extensively as it was when I was a child. I remember washing windows and blinds, searching out any cobwebs that formed during the winter, opening all the windows and letting fresh air in. I also remember cleaning everything - whether it was nailed down or not. Spring cleaning was a major undertaking, often requiring several days to complete. I  Read More>>>
