"Time Zone Challenged Tammy" sent a reminder email out for the March 12th Webinar with TJ Walker" which gave the WRONG TIME for the East Coast.
Thanks to all you East Coast folks who apprised me of the fact that, when it is 11AM here in California, it is, in fact 2pm on the East Coast. Many apologies for that mistake. Register at:
RE: Yesterday's article on how much more money retirees will need for medical expenses.
"I'm Not Larry" commented that he senses a marketing ploy to pave the way for some NEW IMPROVED GETS YOU MORE SOLVENT THAN THE LEADING BRAND product.
Sadly, INL, I too smell a product pitch lurking in the in the disinformation darkness. A similar thing occurs when you hear something such as "government studies find potato chip grease causes blindness in mice" UH OH: (red light flashing off and on) More laws are on the way!
Sure enough media picks it up the story and posts it all over the place like obedient little serfs. Then, a few months later, rumblings begin on Capital Hill that there "oughta be a law against that!" Laws, of course, being the products (byproducts?) of politicians.
Yes, INL, the media is often used in the most heinous and manipulative ways- to incite fear, loathing, and a buying frenzy.
HOWEVER, from personal experience I can safely say. "No matter how much money you think you have for your retirement- IT ISN'T ENOUGH.
I like to apply the rule of 2.5 to all of my life.
If I go into a grocery store with a list and estimate the cost at $55.00, I simply increase that amount 2.5 times. If I am putting together an e-zine and say I will work on it 2 hours, I increase the time by 2.5. Waiting for a commuter train? Again, 2.5.
"Honey, I'm going to be a half hour late.. No, wait, make that 1.5 hours."
INL- do you think this would make sense in the world of retirement planning?
