In the game of baseball, “safe” means to successfully evade being caught by the players on the opposite team to arrive at home plate. Planning makes the difference between hearing the referee shout out at home plate “safe” or “out”. Safe is the word we want to hear.
Older folks need to be “home safe,” too. A well organized home can keep older folks safe from falls and…

Remember when life was simple? All about a suburban home, a station wagon and a white picket fence?
Baby Boomers didn't protest against this "Established Life". To the contrary, the life style of the sixties, except for an unjust war, of course, was unparalleled. Opportunities abounded. Horatio Alger was in his glory. Credit wasn't…Continue

By the time many of my clients reach 50 or above they have experienced a lay-off, extended unemployment, intermittent work history or other “spots on their record.” Worrying about negative references or your professional reputation is one of the best ways I know to stop your job search before it begins. This is not to say that your concerns are not realistic, but the following tips may help you neutralize any negative impact from your past employment history.

When I turned age 60 I was jolted with a large health insurance premium increase. My wife also pointed out how much we were paying for other medical expenses. This prompted us to review what we were spending and the objective was to see what we could do to reduce medical costs now that we are semi-retired. We have been able to substantially save on our medical costs, mostly by being smarter about it and being proactive. Here’s how we did…Continue

Since Jan. 1, more than 10,000 baby boomers a day turned 65. This pattern will continue for the next 19 years, according to the Pew Research Center.
With these astounding numbers, many of us are confronted with and are caring for aging and elderly parents. Those of us with siblings are sharing in the responsibilities, which too can be a challenge. Yet there’s hope, and this hope is manifested beyond our frustrations.

Have heard the expression, when it comes to business: “when you are interested, you do what is convenient; when you are committed, you do whatever it takes!”?? (I’m not sure of the source for this quote because I’ve heard it from so many different people – but it really does ‘sum it up’ when it comes to your approach to business!)
As I enjoyed breakfast this past weekend, I was reflecting on the above quote as I stared at my bacon and eggs.…Continue

These horrors have pushed the world's psyche into overload, causing increased levels of anxiety. If you're feeling vulnerable, you're not alone.
The palpable distress created by shocking news reports has added to the already high levels…

I often encourage my clients to ask themselves the question “where am I stuck?” For many entrepreneurs, the answer can be as simple as ……..’behind my computer’. For others, it can be much more intense and answers can range from finances to networking to finding new clients.
I had the opportunity, last week, to hide behind many excuses. I was faced (graced, actually) with the invitation to appear on TV in Toronto, to start work with my new (phenomenal)…Continue

I watch so many women entrepreneurs pinching pennies, day in and day out – month in and month out – as they struggle to grow their business. I also see them spending money on things and events that do not contribute to the growth of their business. Typically, it is because they don’t have a strategy (let alone a real business plan).
One of my success habits is to invest in myself. This is NOT debt – this is an investment – and it is critical…Continue

One morning a year, while most sip coffee from Styrofoam cups on our way to work, a group of Mardi Gras revellers are downing their fourth brew.
Most Americans don't think twice about their daily grind on this day before Ash Wednesday. But, for the happy few in Southeast Louisiana, no business is transacted on this day that care forgot. On Fat Tuesday, work a day people magically transform into pirates, maidens, Kings and Queens, embracing the rhythms of Jazz cornets and…

Baby Boomers have lived through a lot. We have seen and experienced much in our lives. We have seen a housing boom since 1970 that created some pretty serious equity for home owners. We have seen a nice run up in the value of pension and profit sharing accounts as well as supplemental IRA type programs for our future years. We have seen an increase in the general standard of living in this country that can only be described as mind boggling.
Even that segment of our society that lives…Continue
