  • Is This The Beginning Of The Much-Anticipated Bear Market? - With the market gyrations over the past month, the big question is simply this: are we looking at the beginning of a bear market, or is this nothing more than a minor blip as markets continue their path up?  While I’m optimistic that the market has another year or two to run, really…who knows?

You’re not going to find me on a soapbox on a boardwalk anytime soon. But I’ve been trying to finish the new 652 page book from Tony Robbins, and thought I’d share a little about it with you. Odds […]
  • How Well Do You Understand Taxes In Retirement? - There are many common phrases that reference the certainties of taxes.  One of the most popular is Benjamin Franklin’s “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.”  Unfortunately, this phrase does have some truth.  And unfortunately again, taxes for most people do not ever stop – not even in […]
  • The Labor Market Still Stinks… Despite a Good Jobs Report - According to an article that appeared on Yahoo last week, Rick Newman says we need to look below and behind the numbers to see what’s really going on in the jobs market.  (Read article here.)  The chart below, put out by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, does a good job of presenting his case. While […]
  • Be On The Lookout - A defined benefit pension plan, where a company promises to pay a retiree a set amount each month during retirement, has been a staple in many people’s retirement plan for a long time.

  • Social Security Planning For Early Retirement - A week rarely goes by that Jeremy and I don’t receive at least 4 or 5 email questions from our radio listeners. I thought I’d share one of the questions with you this week as it was a great question.
