Do You Feel Your Age or Do You Feel Younger?

Recently, the town I live in experienced a little flooding. I stood there watching the water and it rose a bit, but not much. A reporter asked me a question about what I thought might happen with hurricane Florence coming through and I talked with her for a minute. But she immediately latched on to and reported on the evening news with video the part where I suggested Florence could imminently hurt businesses, which was completely out of context. That’s an example of this fake news problem and I actually found out firsthand how it starts and then gets spread around.

3 Expenses that Will Go Up After Retirement

Early on in my career, as I prepared to go on vacation, a gentleman said to me, “Just remember, when you’re thinking about vacation and planning for it, take half the clothes and twice the money.” I know you’ve heard that one before, but stay with me. Even when you carefully plan your vacation and expect it to go one way, it almost always works out another way. You either take too many clothes, don’t bring enough money, or a combination of both.

4 Tips for a Trial Run on Relocating

Every couple of years, I get a certain dreaded phone call from somebody I know who’s in someplace warm when it’s cold here in the north and they say, “I just bought a house. I’m really excited and we’re going to move here.” I immediately respond by asking, “Have you ever lived there before?” Inevitably, the person on the other end answers, “No, but it’s a great place!”

5 Top Retirement Regrets

I had a client who was a pilot that was forced to retire at age 60. At his retirement party, he had to go out to get some provisions at the store. He drove to the store, parked, turned the keys to shut the car off, and had a heart attack and died. It was shocking for everyone, and obviously a very severe reaction to retirement. However, we almost saw it coming based on the difficult time he had being forced in to retirement.

Do You Have KASH?

Do you have the cash? I’m not talking about c-a-s-h. I am talking about K-A-S-H. In particular, I’m asking if you have this as your retirement mode.

How Much is Peace of Mind?

The latest happiness studies say that once you’re over the age of 50, you’re going to be happier. There’s many theories as to why that is, but nothing definitive. However, something else happens when we reach this age as well, and it’s where people start to define what wealthy is.

Showing Up for Success

Have you ever heard of the term “con man”? It’s short for “confidence man”, and it’s thought of as a negative term because someone has so much confidence that they end up convincing us to do bad things.

Navigating the Business Highway

How many times has this happened to you? You’re in the left-hand lane, cruising smoothly down the highway at 70 miles an hour, and then all of a sudden, traffic slows down to 30 miles an hour. Then it speeds up again before grinding to a halt again—and this pattern continues over and over, much like the action of an accordion. Eventually, you see why. There’s an accident on your right-hand side and cars are stuck everywhere.

Don’t be a Know-it-all

Stephen Hawking, who passed away this year, once said, “The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.” I like this quote a lot because it’s something I realized about 30 years ago when I was trying to learn a lot of different things and there was just way too much for me to understand.

The Four C’s

I had a client of mine recently pass away at the age of 94. He was an amazing gentleman who truly epitomized the Four C’s, which is something I learned from The Strategic Coach® Program.
