Thanks to the Internet You Can Now Put the Cart Before the Horse

I started my internet business and internet marketing at the "young" age of 60. Although I fell down this rabbit hole by accident, I took to it like a fish to water. (Have I used enough cliches for you?)

Moments ago, pondering an email I got today following a conversation I had yesterday with a friend only a few years younger, I realized that you can put the cart before the horse if you want to start a business today.

Let me explain by using my friend as an example.… Continue

Tired of the Rat Race????? Here's a simple Solution!

I'm a former recruiter who's been through four recessions! Now, as a "Baby Boomer", and finding it virtually impossible to place "other boomers", I have found a network marketing career that has shifted me back into feeling like I am accomplishing something again. No more arguing about fees and what its worth to have a "professional" find the right candidates. Stop fighting the corporate world. It's changed and will never again be as we knew it. Start thinking about how you can transfer your… Continue

The Power of Mindset - If you want to change your life, you must first change your mind!

Mindset: That is the engine, which runs our machine. Our thoughts are very powerful tools. Most people allow the environment to control what they think and just go with the flow allowing others to create their outcomes. If this really worked, we could coast along allowing external forces to determine our lives and our success or failure. Sadly, the masses go down this path all too often and never attain the success in their minds because they do not allow their minds to determine their… Continue

10 Ideas to Help Spouse/or Family Care Givers

by francy Dickinson

Dear Francy; My husband came home last week from hospital. He had a stroke and is now recovering. He went into a care facility for only two days and hated it and demanded he be home again. I’m way over my head and heard about your blog- Help!

First, I’m very sorry you are both going through this health challenge. You will see in my many blogs that as a person who has spent many years as a full time care giver – now,… Continue

Make Friends with Change

Years of change have formed a strong foundation for my life. I know in my heart that change often enriches my life yet it takes me a while to see the friend that change can be. Often a grieving process for the old holds me captive which blinds me to the new possibilities.

I found this to be the case for me a couple of years ago. Living on a farm in Central New York I get to experience nature, animals and (as they say) God in the details. For me, there is no greater joy than to… Continue

Retirement Readiness; Creating Your Vision, Knowing Your Position, & Preparing for Your Future

This is not a book about a great investment strategy, a hot new product, or a guarantee of any kind. I wrote it to get you thinking about retirement before it happens.

Too many times over the years, I've met with people who've already made the leap into retirement without any real direction or thought. They want a lifestyle that doesn't match up with their finances; they make decisions based on what may or may not be working for someone else.

As you read this book, I want you to… Continue

Is Mexico Dangerous? A Baby Boomer Jouranlist From New York Point of View

Linda in her Lucky Duck Productions office in New York City.

By Linda Ellerbee,

Sometimes I've been called a maverick because I don't always agree with my colleagues, but then, only dead fish swim with the stream all the time. The stream here is Mexico.

You would have to be living on another planet to avoid hearing how dangerous… Continue

How to Find Respite Help for the Caregiver

"Caregivers, you need to take care of yourselves."

You know that. You hear that and you read that all the time. The problem is, um, just how do you do that? Our elder(s) need you all the time. They can't afford to pay for in-home care. You don't even know where to start when it comes to taking care of yourself. A partial answer is free respite care, provided by people who can sit with your elder while you have some free time.

I am a Choco-holic!

We chocoholics all have several things in common – we eat Chocolate when we’re happy; we eat Chocolate when we’re sad; we can consume vast quantities of Chocolate at one sitting (depending on the circumstances); we’ve been known to hide Chocolate from the rest of the family; there’s always a chocolate “stash” even if it’s in the bottom of a purse in the back of the closet, nestled to the two-year old pack of gum! We Chocoholics experience guilt of untold proportions when we step on the scale… Continue

One Woman’s Perseverance Results in a Unique Entrepreneurial Business

Every stranger has a story. I was privileged to meet a most extraordinary woman Regina Ince, while killing time in Barnes & Noble, North Little Rock, Arkansas. At first glance she looked like any other confident business woman; dressed in a black suit and obviously conducting an interview with another woman over coffee. It wasn’t Regina who caught my attention - it was the animated meeting, of which I could only hear fragments. When their conference was concluded, Regina picked up her… Continue

What did you feed your skin today?

What did you feed your skin today?Your skin is the largest most critical organ of your body...what did you feed your skin today? As strange as that may sound, we feed our bodies, give our heart a workout( most days!) , but what did you concsiously do for your skin today? Sadly we are an instant gratification society. I tell my clients, it took you most of your adult life to "earn" the damage, its not leaving in a real hurry! (certainly not without invasive treatments or… Continue

Revisiting Your Cash Flow Before You Retire

Reviewing and understanding your cash flow, income streams versus expenses, is an important part of retirement planning that is frequently overlooked. The lifestyle you have created based on your income during employment may require some modification when you leave your current position.

Let’s start with understanding income; I define income as a consistent, scheduled, reliable stream of payment, for a determined amount of time. Social Security is an example of income; you receive… Continue

Foster a Relationship with Your Adult Child

Parenting never ends. Just like matter itself it simply changes forms. (remember those HS science classes) . Having two emerging adults in my family caused me to re-examine my role as a parent. My nest isn’t empty yet, but it soon will be.

Here’s a news flash: kids grow up. Ok, not exactly new, true. Yet, it still blows my mind. My kids are grown. Now, I use that word cautiously lest my mother hear. To her, no child is ever grown no matter what age. And, I think there’s some truth to… Continue

3 Things You Can Do RIGHT NOW To Improve Your Self-Esteem

(1) Start the day with a smile and some confidence (even if it’s fake!). Then make a promise to communicate with everyone honestly but with kindness, telling people exactly how you feel about things, what you can do for them or not do – do not pull punches or make excuses.. just honest communication and then stick to what you said. You have spoken up for yourself which is a big part of self-respect – and that builds self esteem!

(2) Write down a goal or dream of yours on a piece of… Continue

Making Connections vs. Networking

I Just had a conversation with someone today regarding networking vs. connecting. Often times we get caught up in the hectic world of going to network meetings without having a clear intention of purpose. So, what tends to happen is we get to our meeting place and start talking to as many people as we can and we collect as many cards as we can. When we get home we look at the stack and wonder what is the advantage of having all of these cards? Am I really going to call and meet with each and… Continue

How to start a BOOMING Business

You have a great idea or product. You really know your stuff.

You’ve done the research and there is a “market” for your service or widget. Everyone you talk to loves your idea and says, “You should start a bona fide business;” maybe out of your home (maybe not). Where do you go from here?

There are some wonderful books that give advice on the mechanics of starting a business, and I recommend you read everything you can get your hands on. However, if you have a good product… Continue

Retire to Florida? Our parents, yes, Boomers, no...

A recent news article put out the word: folks in record numbers seem to be saying “no thanks” to Florida as a place to retire, and that comes as no surprise to me. In fact, I expected it sooner.

A Cornell expert pondered that perhaps this could be due to the economy or the cost of housing here, as apparently Florida “appears to be suffering more than other states that have lured large numbers of newcomers in recent years.”

In my experience, the answers are ‘only partially’… Continue
