A Savings Vehicle That Makes All the Difference

Missed Fortune – If Only Boomers Could See Things Differently

Posted on | January 22, 2009

Often aging brings inevitable physical decline, which may curb how long a person can realistically stay on the job.

Yet many have not reached the point where their health starts to go downhill, forcing them to deal with this personal financial apathy.  “I’ll deal with a crisis when it happens,” they say to themselves.

But financial crises can and do happen as we have witnessed just recently.  It’s what we do after the crisis that counts.

Have you seen how people react when adversity hits home?  Have you known someone who reacted to downsizing by thinking:  “Why won’t someone hire me with my vast experience?”

I think it would be a sad era, indeed, if 78 million Boomers, loaded with wisdom and experience, are put out to pasture thinking they don’t have anything of value to contribute during their golden years.

If they only know how to package that wisdom, the world would respond with all kinds of compensation.
