When sitting or now Zooming or Skyping with clients to talk their future, I ask a variety of thought stimulating questions such as: how long do you plan on living? What is most important to you? What are your goals and objectives? How much do you want to leave to your children?
The first question is the most difficult because we do not know how long we will live. If we did, it would be easy to figure out issues like: when to buy life insurance, what type and how much, for example. It would also be easy to decide how much to withdraw from IRA’s, 401k’s, and other “qualified accounts,” meaning pre-tax money.
A possible solution to the first question is setting up an “immediate annuity,” which converts a lump-sum of money into a stream of monthly income for life that you cannot outlive! I will cover this in detail in a future column after the election.
What if you could make some simple lifestyle changes to extend your life that could result in weight loss, lowering cholesterol and/or improving blood pressure readings, all without medication or fad diets? See below for 10 tips on how to accomplish this:
These lifestyle changes are not easy at first. Try not to think of it as a diet or temporary change. These are long-term lifestyle changes! Watch the people around you notice the difference and they will start asking you questions about how you did it.
