VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
It took me about two days to get used to retirement. When people ask what do you do all day? I tell them; whatever I want. I don't miss that alarm clock one bit.
One rule to remember - You never help people by giving them money. It's called enabling. Give them advice, and send them on their way. They'll hate you at first... then, when and if they finally take control of their financial lives, they'll thank you.
I always loved my work. It was the idiots I worked for I hated .daily.
They would do things like ....make us take a company survey, anonymous. Later they tried to find out who said what ain staff meetings.
They would publically humiliate people to make themselves look like tough bosses.
They would take credit for what you did and blame their mistakes on the lowest employee.
The CEO would use employee recognition to make himself look good. God help you if you missed your celebration. It was duly noted.
Had one boss who smoked all day, asphyxiated us in staff meetings.
Work? I love it. Management? Go to hades.
I don't think our great government wants us to retire. All I ever read is how bad retirement is. My quess is if all the baby boomers retire there will be no one to pay there wages or social security
Much of what was in the article is BS.
I was medically retired two years ago and I experienced none of the issues they advocated in the article.
And yet another surprise just released:
According to official filings by insurance companies in Virginia for 2015, average rate increases range from 3.3 percent to as high as 16.6 percent for those enrolled in the online exchange, depending on the type of plan a consumer holds.
The rate increases are directly related to the new costs insurers face under the Affordable Care Act due to the higher expense of insuring less healthy, previously uninsured enrollees, and also because of the new fees insurers are facing under the new healthcare law, one company, Anthem HealthKeepers Inc., told the Journal.
I have a to do list and a project list. I have two homes, so I am always imptoving , doing something and hiring folks, jack legs.
Plenty of time to actually read policies and make visits to where you need to be. It can be less stressful because I can take a month to put lights under the cabinets....no time table.
