What do you fear about retirement?

A Day in The Life of a Financial Advisor

I am not a big fan of retirement planners or financial advisors but this video is really quite funny. Be sure to watch it right to the end.
The woman in it reminds me of many arrogant and ignorant baby boomer women who for some unknown reason think of themselves as so special.

Kelley Keene, author of The Prosperity Factor for Women, said, "I sure could have used this when I was in the biz."

I also sent the link to this video to Kelly Graham, Senior Partner of Echelon Financial Corp.

Kelly responded with, "That was priceless. I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time. What is funny is I have met people exactly like that too."

Perhaps this retirement quote applies:

    He that lives upon hope will die fasting.
    — Benjamin Franklin, writing in The Way to Wealth
Here are some other quotes about money to help you get some:

    The Best Way to Become a Millionaire Is to Behave Like One
    — Eben Pagan

    Rule #1: You can't make a good buying decision when you're excited.
    Rule #2: You can't make a good selling decision when you are afraid.
    — Eben Pagan

    Getting money is like digging with a needle. Spending it is like water soaking into the sand.
    — Japanese proverb

    With money you're a dragon; without it you're a worm.
    — Chinese proverb

    Shun anything - shares, property, or the latest hot trend - with recent sharp appreciation. Bubbles burst. Wait until prices fall and then stabilize. Never buy in a market that is rising or falling fast. In the short term, stick to safe investments, even if you can only get 5 percent.
    — Richard Koch, author of Living the 80/20 Way.
