The Need for Advisors in Retirement Plans - "Set it and forget it" Isn't always the answer.
To keep from sounding self serving I almost name today's show something else. However, after much thought and preparation I realized there was no better way to say it.
With the poplularity of target-date funds (TDF's), risk-based funds, and model portfolios, reaching a whopping $475 billion as of Novermber 2012, according to Morningstar. This is four times the total in 2006, which was the same year the Pension Protection Act passed. But, many employess who have 401(k)s and 403(b)s are selecting such funds and then forgetting about it.
Tune in to learn why this maybe a very costly mistake!

Will your current retirement plan cut it? For a fortunate few yes - for most everyone else, NO!
I make the argument that for most baby boomers, current retirement plans aren't/won't cut it, and how a healthy real estate portfolio can allievate that problem as well as provide you with a healthy, monthly cash flow in your retirement!
In this exciting episode we discuss whether or not Americans will be able to actually retirement in the future. On this episode of the Current Issues Show we also discuss the IRS's unnecessary spending. We go into great detail about their spending and how to fix the IRS overall.

If you haven't figured it out for yourself yet, Wall Street - aka "the financial services industry" couldn't care less about your quality of life in retirement or right now for that matter.
Real estate investing for retirement - NOT WALL STREET, will give YOU more control over YOUR money, and can provide a very healthy income and net worth for you in retirement!
Listen in as we expose MORE of the corruption on Wall Street and the banks and see if you won't agree that investing in real estate makes a whole lot more sense than giving your retirement money to the crooks on Wall Street and your local bank!
The program offered by Av is a Life Management system which combines our unique Lifestyle Transition Planning Process with Pre-Retirement Education. It focuses on the psychological, lifestyle and transition issues in developing a vision of retirement. Although there is a financial component to the program it is not the primary element.
Our business model is strictly education and training. We do not sell financial products and we do not give advice. Our market is companies and unions both in Canada and the United States. We offer a workshop program as well as an Online version. Workshops are the primary delivery system but companies that contract our services sometime ask us to take a senior manager through the program using a one on one (with partner) coaching format.
In his previous life Av was in the life insurance industry for 28 years and steadily progressed “up the ladder” to senior positions with national responsibility for sales, marketing and distribution.
At 50 years of age he was “re-organized” out of his position. He had no exit strategy, no vision of what he wanted to do in the future. He spent two agonizing years trying to figure out in what direction to take his life.
Over time it became clear to him that he was not alone and there were thousands of people struggling with the issues of change and transition. People who needed a process to help them make decisions and transition into the future.
Join us as we welcome to our show motivational speaker and Life After Retirement Advocate Geraldine Jones.
She is a retired social worker who worked in social services for over 30 year providing advocacy services to neglected and abused youth. Geraldine states that she never really planned to retire but intended to transition from working with the county to working in private adoptions.
Before she was able to make that transition, health problems forced her to retire and reevaluate her life. She was diagnosed with diabetic retinopathy and realized she was losing her sight. She went into a depression and felt hopeless about her situation.
Through spiritual support from her family, church, retirement community (where she lives) and coaching, she was able to slowly recover. She began exploring hobbies and interests (she didn't have or make time for during her career). She learned how to swim, play the organ, and became a public speaker, all after the age of 65.
She is continuing to discover that there can be life after retirement despite medical, physical and other impairments that often follow the aging process. She speaks to seniors, those who are close to retirement, disabled, and youth about hope, change, and faith.
Journey with us as we learn how to prepare and transition through the aging process towards retirement.

You also know by now that if in fact you yourself are in one of these plans, you're more than likely not going to have the kind of retirement the "financial advisors" who sold you the plan, made you think you would! Now what?
The sands in the hourglass continue to drain, the "retirement hour" draws closer every day and you've come to realize your retirement plan will fall far short of your expectations. What do you do now? Is there an alternative that will aid me in my retirement financially?
