    TBW Retirement Financials Follow-up

    TBW Retirement Financials Follow-up

    Last week, the guest on the show was Certified Financial Planner Nahanni Ackroyd.
    At the end of that super-informative episode, Agnes promised to follow-up this week with a spreadsheet she had created that really crunched the numbers of your life.  This episode reviews the spreadsheet - you'll understand the effectiveness without the video, but there is a video too.
    The video link:  https://twoboomerwomen.com/episode-extras/
    Agnes also mentioned a full-on Pre-retirement planning course she had created a few years ago.  It's free now - you'll find the link to register at the above link too.
    Good luck!!

    TBW Guest: Michelle Geyer

    TBW Guest: Michelle Geyer

    The conversation today starts with the value of finding one valued/valuable accountability partner.
    As Agnes chats with Michelle, it becomes apparent that no matter what we name the generations, the story for many women doesn't really change.  Some of the circumstances may look different but the commonalities are there.
    Michelle is a Gen-X-er who had a great career but, after the birth of twins, realized the income that remained at the end of the month if she went back to work was paltry... and add that fact to the heartache of leaving babies in the care of another woman - she decided to be a stay-at-home mom.
    So many of us can identify with all the stages of personal reflection and evaluation that mothers go through... if the story of this woman isn't quite the same as our Boomer-story, Michelle might be your daughter... she's worth listening to for that reason alone!  (She's worth listening to for a bunch of reasons but you know what I mean!)

    TBW Guest: Robin DeFoe

    TBW Guest: Robin DeFoe

    Agnes has her good friend, Robin DeFoe on this week: Robin is one of those special Boomers who still has a mom with her, and she has decided to be caregiver for her mom as dementia claims another lovely person.
    Robin has a unique gift and that is building a network marketing business, although most of her work has had to be sidelined as her mom's needs grow.
    Robin was introduced to CBD oil to help her mom - the link to the research she found is below; and Robin is also living proof of the effectiveness of her immune system booster, that link is also below.
     
    Full disclosure: Robin will make no money from the CBD link, she will earn a small stipend if you decide to try out her immune system product.
