Investing For Retirement
The best thing to do is take a good look at all areas of your financial portfolio
Making good investment choices has always been considered a wise and prudent act for those who want to get, and remain, financially ahead of the game. As you grow older, you begin to realize how important it is to look out for yourself, not just in terms of your personal health, but your financial health as well.
How you invest your money these days is especially crucial because, with all the questions concerning the long term status of social security looming over the large population of baby boomers who are coming up on retirement age, many people may not be as well prepared as they think they are.
Making common sense investments with your money is imperative if you want to live comfortably in your retirement years. And it's not just the baby boomers who need to be concerned, the generations coming after the baby boomers will be hard pressed to make ends meet.
The first of the baby boomers have already begun to retire and within the next ten years, a large number are going to begin tapping into social security. Whether they invested wisely over their working years is going to come to play a big part in their retirement lifestyles.
For those baby boomers who have not yet retired, it's not too late to start investing. There are many investment vehicles available that can give you additional income when..........

Always Be Prepared
You can control your assets even after you die
There is no way to know everything that is going to happen tomorrow but you can put together a plan that will give you a certain amount of control over your assets, even if you are not personally here to oversee them.
A lot of people don't even want to talk about wills or family trusts, let alone having one prepared because they see them as precursors to death. But as many of us have learned the hard way, you should always be prepared for anything life has to offer, including death.
You should take the necessary steps to ensure that your assets and your family are protected in the event you die, develop mental illness, Alzheimer, dementia, or suffer an injury that leaves you mentally impaired.
Life is full of unexpected twists and turns and you can never know what fate has in store for you at any given time. It doesn't matter how old you are, how strong your are, how smart you are, or how you live your life. Things happen and life altering events can take place at the blink of an eye.

WOMEN, WORK, AND THE WILL TO LEAD
Thirty years after women became 50 percent of the college graduates in the United States, men still hold the vast majority of leadership positions in government and industry. This means that women’s voices are still not heard equally in the decisions that most affect our lives. In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg examines why women’s progress in achieving leadership roles has stalled, explains the root causes, and offers compelling, commonsense solutions that can empower women to achieve their full potential.
Sandberg is the chief operating officer of Facebook and is ranked on Fortune’s list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business and as one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People in the World. In 2010, she gave an electrifying TEDTalk in which she described how women unintentionally hold themselves back in their careers. Her talk, which became a phenomenon and has been viewed more than two million times, encouraged women to “sit at the table,” seek challenges, take risks, and pursue their goals with gusto.
In Lean In, Sandberg digs deeper into these issues, combining personal anecdotes, hard data, and compelling research to cut through the layers of ambiguity and bias surrounding the lives and choices of working women. She recounts her own decisions, mistakes, and daily struggles to make the right choices for........
