RELATIONSHIPS
CAN’T LIVE WITH THEM CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT THEM!

Issues with friends and family can keep you up all night and just plain bringing you down all day.

1) Dealing with a difficult daughter-in-law?
2) A husband who doesn’t talk to you?
3) Are your grown children ignoring you?
4) Who can I talk to without feeling judging?

5) How can I stop feeling so alone?

In a group setting “lets talk” it through and find a solution that works for you.

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

Now that apple season is here, let’s make sure all those apples we buy will be cold, and crunchy and not spoiled until we’re ready to bite into them.

Keeping apples separate from other veggies such as onions, potatoes, and other strong

smelling produce will help to keep them fresh in the refrigerator crisper drawer.

They should be kept by themselves.

Remember there are no rotten apples – only ones that have been stored improperly

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES

EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS

WHO’S THE B-O-S-S?

WHAT DOES B-O-S-S STAND FOR?

BOSS is an acronym that we use to refer to the four key people everyone must consider with respect to retirement planning, i.e., developing an income exit strategy and ensuring all IRAs, 401(k)s and other retirement plans are set up properly.

To ensure retirement assets will be distributed in a manner consistent with an overall retirement plan, all paperwork must be filled out accurately and clearly reflect the owner’s wishes. To assist in this, we recommend what we call a BOSS review. This is a retirement plan review that should be conducted at least once per year and must be conducted anytime there is a life changing event such as birth, death, marriage or divorce. But the question remains, who’s the BOSS?…

Beneficiary

Owner

Spouse

Survivors

READ MORE HERE

So, as you prepare for retirement or are currently retired, rethink simply looking for guaranteed retirement income – look for increasing income potential.

Call Marc for answers and solutions to your financial questions.

Vitamin D – nature put it there to help protect us.

 

If you cannot get 15 minutes of sunlight daily, then at least take a Vitamin-D supplement. This is  

one of the most powerful ways to help insure

increased health and wellness.

 

So try to visit Dr. Sun everyday – considered by some  

to be the best doctor on the planet!

4 NASTY PHONE AND EMAIL SCAMS   

Given the recent number of annoying telemarketing calls and suspicious emails I’ve received the past two weeks, it’s clear that scammers did not take the summer off. In fact, they seem to be busier than ever. Odds are you’ve gotten at least one, too.  READ MORE HERE  

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.

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!

According to Officer Daryl Scoggins of the Vanowen Police Department, burglaries south of Ventura are picking up again. And if it’s happening there it could be happening in your neighborhood.

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.
