Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

Are your foods on drugs?

Quite possibly since so many chemicals

are added to our general food supply.

Be wary of apples, grapes, cucumbers, spinach, winter squash, potatoes, and strawberries to name a few.

Make sure you buy organic or from your local farmers’ markets.

Remember that the slogan, “Just Say No To Drugs”

could apply to the foods you are eating also.

The Congressional Budget Office expects a $79 billion excise tax burden from 2018 to 2023.

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

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.
