More than one way to leave a legacy.

This is a story about how a gift of shares can create a domino effect.

I came across a story recently that piqued my interest.  Ben Clendon, now in his 30’s is actively building a share portfolio for the future.  His story however, began when at five years old, Ben’s father bought him some shares.  That action had a domino effect. It made Ben curious, and that in turn created an awareness of shares and the stock market, and that developed into a career.

Investing – when do we start asking the questions?

Left a widow in 2009 I had to jump in at the deep end. We had bought an investment property and had renovated a couple of houses that we flipped with a little success but that was the sum total of my knowledge.  I couldn’t afford to stay a novice.  I consulted financial planners, stock brokers and I started looking through the newspapers and goggling information available locally. I also signed up to attend seminars, forums, industry workshops put on by government agencies, financial planning groups and organizations. I went to free ones and I went to paid ones. I was on a mission to find out as much as possible.

Help!  It looks like I have run out of money, or have I?

A financial wake-up call will scare the living daylights out of you. Running out of money, or not enough money is an expression we hear quite a bit these days.   I will bet you know someone in that position. This is becoming more prevalent as more and more Baby Boomers move into retirement.

Putting the "I" in Time

Time management is an abhorrent phrase to me. No one manages time. It runs along smartly with or without our cooperation. We do speak ofe. No one manages time using time. In this sense, there is a biological clock that ticks within us all. Each of us has a different setting of which we are unaware. Nonetheless, we all are aware that in the earth plane of existence, time is a limited and perhaps precious commodity for each and every one of us.
