Posted Tue Dec 15, 2015

As you well know, we are going through a period where some major events, mostly negative, are changing and shaping the way our world will work in the future.

Posted Tue Dec 08, 2015

The words Money, Freedom and Happiness all play a big role into your overall quality of life. Money is intrinsically linked to freedom, but not necessarily happiness. As ironic as it may seem, people that have all the “wants” in the world can be some of the most unhappy individuals out there.

Let’s face it, retirement for most people is a big financial unknown.

The Decision to Trust

Posted Tue Oct 06, 2015

We’ve all heard the words “Trust me!” from someone before. As humans, we want to be able to trust others. It is not always easy to know who you can trust but that control lies within ourselves. Trusting each other is a part of us all biologically and it is an essential element of social reality.

Preparing for Emergencies

Posted Tue Sep 22, 2015

If disaster were to strike, would you know it’s coming? Have you prepared for the worst or developed a backup plan? If you haven’t already, you should be considering these questions.
