Prepared for Retirement? An Interview with Melody Juge: Life Income Management

As a 58 year old baby boomer the question and issues raised in this interview are important!  Are you prepared for retirement?  If I were asked that question, I’d have to say – NO.  Therefore listening to Melody and her advice is right on target for me.

Join me now as you read my interview with Melody Juge.

An Interview with Bruce Weinstein: The Good Ones

Bruce Weinstein has written an amazing new book: The Good Ones.  Here’s a brief synopsis of his outstanding work:

The Good Ones presents ten crucial qualities of high-character employees, qualities that enhance employee satisfaction, client relationships, and the bottom line.

You’ll read stories from managers and employees across the U.S. and beyond who reveal how honesty, courage, loyalty, and patience have helped their organizations maintain an edge over the competition.
