    Demystifying Medicare Repost - Open Enrollment for 2020

    Since October 17 through December 7, 2019 is the Medicare Open Enrollment period, this is the perfect time to revisit a previous Podcast on Medicare. As a new Medicare recipient, I can tell you that Medicare has been the best part of retirement for me. And obtaining all of the information prior to signing up is key to making the most of this earned benefit. So, please take 30 minutes to listen to my additional comments and the repost of Demystifying Medicare with Medicare Broker, Tom Bay of Tom Bay and Associates.

    Senior Migration - On the Move

    Senior Migration - On the Move

    I did a podcast on Senior Migration in a previous episode, where I shared my research on how to find the best locations to spend retirement. The episode was only 30 minutes but the research took about a year!

    Well, we have zeroed in on the exact area where we will move - so the adventure begins! Since there are many seniors who are planning moves to warmer climes, to a lower cost of living or to live closer to grand kids, I decided to share our process.  

    Moving is comprised of many parts: Realtors, new home search, selling your home and the physical relocation. You may be assured that on this topic, the shear number of moves that I have under my belt more than qualifies me as a good resource on this topic!  

    If a move is imminent or just something that you are contemplating - this 30 minute podcast may be a worthwhile listen.

    Travel Lodging Alternatives, Continued (Episode 7, Part 3)

    In this episode we are listening to Emmanuel Arnaud, the CEO of Home Exchange. I wanted to interview Emmanuel because the Home Exchange model opens up travel opportunities for retirees on a fixed income and for that matter, anyone on a budget regardless of their stage in life.  In this interview, I ask Emmanuel to expound on his belief that the concept of Home Exchange will become the next big thing in tourism.

    Vacation/Lodging Alternatives (Part 2 of a 2-part series)

    Vacation/Lodging Alternatives (Part 2 of a 2-part series)

    In this episode, we will learn about Vacation Property Partners, which is a website service that connects individuals interested in purchasing vacation property (vacation homes, boats, RV's, planes and even cars) with one other partner. Please note that this is not a timeshare or fractional ownership, this platform is designed for a two-party partnership.
    This is a revolutionary concept, in that it will change the way we approach vacation property ownership!

Momma Kaplan ,

Such great in-depth info! Thank you!!!!

My husband & I just listened to the Senior Migration podcast. Soooo much valuable information and perfect timing as we are planning a move, as well, to our" well scouted out" retirement destination. I was taking notes fast and furiously as the areas of information were more than we had even considered. Thanks for making us better informed. It is giving us much more confidence in our move. We are headed for a great adventure!
