    Elder Power ... Senior Living At Its Best

    in Relationships

    How did being a senior citizen become associated with degeneration and uselessness instead of wisdom and leadership?  In any other context, the word senior means someone who is advanced and respected in their field.  We've developed a culture where senior citizens are robbed of their true identify - so much so that many seniors buy in to their very own dis-empowerment.  Our guest, Veola Momom, is more than just a senior advocate, she is an example.  At 71 years of age, Veola is moving, working and setting new heights for herself.  She's dedicated to empowering senior citizens to bring forth their hidden treasures.


    Her book, "OH MY ... I AM THE POWER!", is written to encourage senior citizens to clearly take back their identity and a guide to living a full and meaningful life.

    in Finance

    This past week, Vice President Joe Biden and Julián Castro, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development were out promoting homeownership for low income families and encouraging lenders to loosen credit standards.  After watching David Lykken appeared as a guest on FOX Business discussing this topic ( http://video.foxbusiness.com/v/4159595330001 ), many mortgage lenders wrote him saying they are FOR the loosening credit standards.  David asked and we will be discussing, "Wasn't it the loosening of credit standards that got us into the last housing crisis and resulted in the U.S. getting into the 'Great Reccession'?"   


    To put this all in perspective, Logan Mohtashami will be returning to the broadcast sharing his thoughts on this important topic.  You can read his latest blog on this topic at http://loganmohtashami.com/ (Logan Mohtashami | Financial Truth ).  He has recently been challenging the assumptions and assertions of many housing experts.  Tune in to today's broadcast to hear Logan's latest housing market predictions, things you won't hear from other housing experts.     


    Created BY mortgage professional FOR mortgage professionals, Lykken on Lending is a weekly 60-minute radio program hosted by mortgage veteran, David Lykken and joined by Alice Alvey, Andy Schell, Joe Farr, Paul Muolo and Sam Garcia all discussing the latest industry news.
