Post image for Moving When You Retire Is Dumb!

Unless you are moving with friends and family, moving when you retire is dumb!  You have roots in the neighborhood, family and community.  Social connections are very important to living a long happy life.  Do you really want to start over again in a new place?  Are you moving to a warmer climate?  Why do you want to move?  Is it the lure of an exotic location?  Would you move overseas?

Post image for Why I don’t Have a Bucket List

Any bucket list is stupid!  If you wait to do things or need to put it on a bucket list, you probably won’t do it anyway.  The concept of a list of things to do before you die bothers me!  It seems you are procrastinating if you need to put it on some list to do in the future.  The bucket list is a list of things to do before you kick the bucket.  Are you putting off something for all the wrong reasons?

Post image for Get Paid to Stay Healthy

Paid to stay healthy?  Can you imagine insurance companies paying you to stay healthy?  I can’t!  Health insurance companies are routinely vilified for their practices.  Now they are not only encouraging healthy behaviors, but actually paying you for it.  It is a 180 degree change, but I will gladly take it.  Is there something wrong about accepting money from the insurance company for doing what you would do anyway?

Post image for How to Shop for Homeowners Insurance

Shopping for homeowners insurance is a necessity particularly where I live.  I live in southern California where the next big earthquake is days/weeks/months/years away!   A natural disaster that can wipe you out financially!.  I survived the Northridge earthquake without damage, but that was just luck.  California has a 99% chance of a big earthquake within thirty (30) years.

Post image for Individualized, Personalized and Customized Marketing!

Individualized, Personalized and Customized Marketing is driving me nuts!  I am a baby boomer and tired of all the marketing directed to me.  I am not an AARP member, but I get solicitations from AARP routinely several times a year since I turned 50 years old.  If AARP were the only solicitation, I could just throw it out!  Maybe it is what these solicitations represent!

Post image for Home Gym on a Budget

Would you like a home gym?  All the movie stars have a home gym and you can too!  Do you have to be a movie star to have one?  No, not really!  In fact, you can put one together for very little money.  Over the years, I belonged to a health club and went there regularly during the week and even weekends.  I spent years in the gym, but it was worth it.  It takes a lot of work to keep me fit.

Post image for Buy New Appliances and Save Money!

 Yes, I am saying to buy new appliances and save money.  Recently, I bought a new refrigerator to replace a nineteen (19) year old refrigerator.  It was freezing up and leaking water from the freezer.  It just didn’t make sense to repair because of the age and we wanted a stainless steel one to match relatively new dishwasher.  I hate shopping for appliances!

Post image for Forget Everything Else, Marry for Money

To avoid any confusion, I did say to marry for money.  Is money more important than love?  Finding your soul mate is not easy.  You already know what kind of person you don’t want, but you keep attracting those kinds of people.  You know the ones, they drink too much, spend too much, unfaithful, controlling or just not good for you.  If you have rich friends, you are more likely to meet other rich successful people.

Post image for Why Sports Teach Success?

Participation in sports teach skills in leadership and success.  When you think of sports, you think of physical activity, but there is much more.  Most companies operate as a team which means it is similar to a sports team.  Winning teams are not necessarily the most talented, but one that can work well together to meet an objective.  If you do not participate in sports in school what are you learning, the 3 R’s?
