THE NEW
RETIREMENT SOLUTION
 By Katana Abbott, SWE Founder

With over 10,000 Baby Boomers retiring every day, the dream of having enough money saved up to support you through the second half of your life can be daunting. According to a study by the National Institute on Retirement Security, “The average working household has virtually no retirement savings. When all households are included— not just households with retirement accounts—the median retirement account balance is $3,000 and $12,000.”

Randall Hansen, Ph.D., states that, “For many, retirement will indeed no longer signal the end of working, but more so a career and lifestyle transition, where the retiree has multiple options ..."

IT'S NEVER TOO EARLY TO PLAN

'As in all successful ventures, the foundation of a good retirement is planning."  
~ Earl Nightingale

My husband and I are currently updating our financial plan with a focus on our Retirement Reinvention. If you don't have a financial advisor, I highly recommend that you find a person you can trust and someone willing to do a financial plan, so you can see where you stand, and to help you identify and explore your vision, values and goals. Finding the right person is a big job.  

Are you ready to start planning?

5 NATURAL REMEDIES FOR THE
ENERGY-SUCKING EPSTEIN BARR VIRUS

By Dr. Keesha Ewers, SWE Contributing Expert

About eight years ago, after finishing another graduate degree, I was literally dragging myself out of bed every morning. I went from an energetic woman who hopped out of bed every morning to go running to a woman who kept hitting the snooze button on the alarm clock. I felt myself fighting falling asleep every afternoon at work. I couldn’t wait to go to bed every night; in fact, it was my new favorite time of day! I was exhausted. My memory was shot. I had been used to remembering every single patient’s story and plan of care without having to refer to their chart. In fact, many of my patients were amazed at what I considered a “normal memory.” However, with the extreme fatigue came extreme brain fog. I became alarmed and started searching for answers.

Learn how Dr. Keesha escaped this fog!

'DARK PHOENIX' PROBES THE IMPACT OF UNDERLYING INTENTS

By Brent Marchant, SWE Contributing Expert

When we converse with someone, we like to think we understand the meaning behind everything they’re saying. But are we truly grasping the beliefs, intents and motivations underlying their statements? And what about their actions and gestures – can we say the same about those, too? Sometimes we need to take a closer look to make sure that we’re correctly reading their intentions, a theme that runs through the latest installment in the X-Men franchise, Dark Phoenix .
