This is the”About Me”, or as I put it, the “About Rich” page.
This the place where I am supposed to write something very awesome about myself…you’ll have to wait until I come up with something awesome…lol.
All kidding aside, I have a lot to say. For example, the reason I have built this blog, and the educational products that I’ll be promoting along the way.
Here’s the big part of the story – I was born in in the early 1950’s, which makes me a Baby Boomer. And like most baby boomers that didn’t go to work for the government, I didn’t create much of a retirement or pension to rely on in my retirement years. I do have a couple 401K’s, but every time there’s an “adjustment” in the market, my 401K’s go the wrong way. Look what happened to all of our investments in 2008/2009, and are about to happen again here in 2020 due to the Coronavirus.
Based on not having a HUGE pension to rely on (keep reading and you’ll see what I mean), most of what we Baby Boomers are going to be relying on is Social Security. And boy doesn’t that sound like fun! If I wait until I’m 66 years old to “retire,” I’ll get about $1700.00 a MONTH from Social Security (keep reading and you’ll see why that’s a JOKE).
I don’t know if you’ve been paying attention to what our “leaders” have done to Social Security and Medicare, but they are both going broke here in the United States. As a matter of fact, in June of 2018, it was announced on the news that Medicare would be broke by the year 2026. That’s ONLY six years from now (as of this writing).
Medicare BROKE when I turn 70! WTF? And here’s what REALLY pisses off a LOT of Baby Boomers about this fact. Our “leaders” are allowing this to happen at the exact same time that we have ex-state employees, here in the State of Oregon, with pensions that are paying them as much as $76,111 a MONTH! NOT per YEAR…EACH and EVERY MONTH while they’re alive. I’m NOT kidding…click here to see the list of the top 10 PERS (Public Employees Retirement System) recipients.
I’ve got a LOT more to share about why I’m creating EXPERTS Made Easy, and the Baby Boomer Retirement Roadmap…and I think it will make a lot of sense to you when I get to that point.
I’ll be back soon for more. Be sure to leave your comment below!
