Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

Regular consumption of dates has been found to check the growth of the bad bacteria and help in the growth of friendly bacteria in the intestines.

Dates are already known as a laxative food, and other benefits include lowering the bad cholesterol and strengthening your heart.

Nature always seems to have a

solution for every problem.

So make a date with a date right now!

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES

EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS
Minimum Social Security Benefit Protects Survivors

Everyone knows that Social Security rules are complicated and occasionally even I get them wrong.  For example,  I had always relied on the Social Security Administration’s publications that clearly stated: “If the person who died was receiving reduced benefits, we base your survivor benefit on that amount. The maximum survivor benefit amount is limited to what he or she would have received if they were still alive.”

READ MORE HERE ABOUT THESE BENEFITS

Finally, if you are eligible for retirement benefits on your own earnings record as well survivor benefits, you can collect one benefit first and switch to the other later if it would result in a bigger benefit.

Call Marc for answers and solutions to your financial questions.

THE WORLD’S SMALLEST TRAVEL WASHING MACHINE 

The Scrubba wash bag is a lightweight device for washing clothes anytime, anywhere. It allows you to wash 2-3 T-shirts, jocks and socks in only a few minutes. The Scrubba wash bag features a highly flexible internal washboard that is backed by our unique pattern grip surface. To wash clothing, a user simply adds water and cleaning liquid (e.g. shampoo or body wash); seals the bag and expels excess air; rubs the dirty clothing against the washboard from outside the bag for 30 sec to 3 mins; opens the bag and rinses the clothing. By taking a few minutes every 2-3 days to wash what you have been wearing, you can reduce your luggage making your backpack much lighter.

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

Always do some good everyday – even if you just smile at a stranger in the check out line or bring a

single flower to a friend who’s  down.

You never know what troubles someone

else is suffering.

Remember this – the good and kindness you do will always come back to you in one way or another. It costs nothing and the rewards are endless.

And it also helps you to be well!

beware1

Yesterday I received an email that said “A check exceeded your requested activity alert”. It was very authentic with the bank’s logo on it. Problem is they sent it to another email of mine – one that my bank does not have on record for me. So I knew immediately it was a scam. They went on to ask me to “click here” so I could clear it up.

DO NOT ANSWER THESE KIND OF EMAILS – THEY ARE SCAMMERS LOOKING FOR YOUR INFORMATION SO THEY CAN GET INTO YOUR BANK ACCOUNTS!  DELETE THEM IMMEDIATELY.  IF ANY QUESTIONS GO TO YOUR BANK AND ASK THEM IF THEY SENT IT.

important1  If sometimes you find you are not receiving our newsletter (on Thursday mornings), please check your “junk” or “spam” files.  It may have inadvertently ended up in one of those files.

 

Also one of the very first things you will see when you open the newsletter is this

“Having trouble viewing this email? Click here.  If you will in fact click on that, it will open up the entire newsletter so that everything including all the information on the right hand side, will be visible.  This way the newsletter is much easier to read.

Winner Favorite Boomer/Senior Newsletter

Daily News Readers Choice Awards

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

A spoonful of sugar may make the medicine go down,

but it also “changes your metabolism, raises blood pressure, critically alters the signaling of hormones

and causes significant damage to the liver,”

according to three doctors at the

University of California at San Francisco.

In a recent issue of Nature, they argued that the

health hazards of sugar are similar to those

related to drinking too much alcohol.

So let’s not be so sweet on sugar!

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES

EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS
This month’s newsletter is a special edition dedicated to a special planning tool. As we age, our planning needs naturally change and we have to anticipate roadblocks that many ignore until it’s too late.

When the subject of failing health arises, our natural (and typical) reaction is to deflect this dose of reality and convince ourselves “That won’t happen to me, it will happen to the other guy, but not to me.” This is especially true for those who currently have a strong bill of health – it’s hard to imagine a drastic change in your health when you feel fine and are in good shape today.

Call Marc for answers and solutions to your financial questions.

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

Think orange when you do your grocery shopping.

Orange as in carrots, squash, oranges, peppers, cantalope, and pumpkins since these foods carry high levels of alpha-carotene, an extremely vital phyto-nutrient.  And the best way to get it seems to come from food, rather than a pill.

Maybe orange is the new green!

beware1

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has been advised that citizens are receiving phone calls from individuals who are representing themselves as Department employees.  The caller usually tells the citizen that there has been a warrant issued for their arrest for failure to appear for Jury Duty.

The caller will tell the victim that they have to pay a sum of money or deputies will come and arrest them.  The caller will instruct the victim to either get a Money Order, conduct a wire transfer, or buy a Gift Card (usually Green Dot) and send it to “pay the fine.”

BE AWARE THAT THESE DEPARTMENTS DO NOT MAKE PHONE CALLS ASKING FOR MONEY.  THIS IS A SCAM.  HANG UP IMMEDIATELY!

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES

EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS strong> 

Top Accounting Firms Know They Need to go Beyond the 1040

Today America’s top accounting firms know that to stay relevant they must offer their clients additional planning resources in critical areas such as retirement and distribution planning.

As trusted advisors, tax professionals are well-positioned to help their clients make sound financial decisions regarding retirement exit strategies, mitigating and eliminating risk of long-term care financial disasters, and boosting returns on retirement savings.  

READ MORE HERE ABOUT THIS SUBJECT

When it comes to asset transfer decisions this is wholly in the tax arena, not financial services yet most tax professionals are not speaking with clients about key asset transfer opportunities. By broadening their discussions with clients, tax professionals can truly enrich the lives of their clients now and during their retirement years. In addition they can help clients experience the peace of mind that comes when their financial affairs are in order.

RESTORATIVE YOGA FOR STRESS REDUCTION
AND CHRONIC HEALTH ISSUES BY LAURIE

If you thought you couldn’t do yoga or were afraid to try, then please consider Laurie’s gentle, healing yoga classes. They are different.

These classes consist of poses that are adapted to different physical conditions with individualized attention so each gentle stretch is comfortable for everyone. Balance exercises, easy stretches, breathing exercises, visualizations and meditations are also offered in these supportive, restorative yoga classes.

DO YOU HAVE ICE ON YOUR CELL PHONE?
(Note – this has been in the newsletter often however it is so extremely important that you are aware of this great tool)

 

What is ICE?

It means “in case of emergency” and in case of an accident or other emergency, the person needed to contact is right there under that category.

So on your cell phone, make sure someone will have the means to contact the person who would need to know where you are. Just input that person’s name and phone number and instead of using their name, just name it “ICE”.  You can have them under both that name and their own name.  It’s that simple and could be an extremely important asset in case of any kind of emergency!

Whether you want to watch funny cat videos or share FaceTime with an actual human being, the Anti-Loneliness bowl is there for you. And, unlike an actual person, the phone never slurps its soup.

IF YOU MISS THE OLD FASHIONED BAGELS
AND WANT TO TAKE A SHORT DRIVE

According to more than a few East Coasters, you’ve never really had a bagel until you’ve had a real Brooklyn bagel. We’re talking about the kind of bagels that are toothy on the outside and doughy on the inside. Well, you don’t necessarily have to take a trip to New York to hunt down a great bagel.  You can get one right here in Southern California, and we’re happy to help you navigate this doughy terrain.

So allow us to take you on a trip down bagel lane.
