Are You Going It Alone? What is it like the first time you do something? It’s clunky and uncomfortable, isn’t it? The first time you ride a bike. Your first job interview. First child. Life is full of “firsts.” Retirement holds the unique place of not only being a “first” for everyone, it also holds…

Chasing Returns Learning to crawl, walk, then run… When my kids first learned to run, I had a blast chasing them around the backyard. Once I caught them, I’d let go and off they’d go and we’d do it all over again. Most young investors chase returns of the likes of Game Stop never realizing…

Are You Okay?

By Barry Spencer | March 30, 2021 |

This Is What People Want to Know When it comes to retirement, people want to know the answer.

By Barry Spencer | March 16, 2021 |

Because What Gets Your Attention… MSNBC, CNBC, Fox Business, CNN and all the others are in the same business. You are led to believe they are in the information business, but they are NOT.
