About Us

I have several successful careers spanning more than 50 years.  And, I have always tried to be passionate about what I do.  Trying to stay retired and being involved creates its own special conflicts.  But with help from a good partner, a positive attitude and good health, it is possible. 

The internet has been an interest for a long time and I read a lot of “about us” pages.  Most of them give a pretty good summary of the person’s working life, but not many allow you to understand what the person or company is really about.  When I started this website it was a result of wanting more information about retirement without a fortune and other things that have an impact on what I hoped would be a successful retirement.  I want more information than the usual “start saving early” advisors give.  And, the best place to start is right here. 

I want to provide information that will help people, especially retirees, with tools that help them fix some of the problems that have been dogging them.  Any information I post here is something that I or my wife have used, done or I have personal knowledge about. 

There is a lot of free stuff here.  Good information and tips that can be useful in solving a wide range of problems.  That being said,  I must also tell you that I am an affiliate of some of the links I have posted.  That means if you click on a link and buy something, I may get a commission for the sale.  If you have a problem with that, then please, just take the free stuff and enjoy it.

I have a lot of interests and lots of opinions and I enjoy writing articles about a lot of subjects that interest me.  This website is for anyone who can use the information and other tips posted here. I’ll keep adding to it as time goes on and I get more good content for it.

My inspiration comes from my wife and best friend, Debi.  We’ve been together most of our lives and we did a great job of raising four successful kids.  She has been very supportive and understanding during the many hours I’ve spent working on this project and quite frankly, her insight has been priceless.
