By Mike Brady, Michael Brady & Co.
 
The world around us is changing every day and the rate of change seems to be accelerating. Every aspect of life is experiencing the effects of these changing forces. These changes affect our financial lives and require us to remain flexible and to change with the world. New technologies provide opportunities as well as challenges. If you are not prepared to change with the world, you could experience more of the challenges and miss out on the available opportunities.
 
But how are we to keep up with the ever-increasing flow of information, the flood of new ideas, products and services? How do we stay current and relevant in the world and ...

An extra-strength boost

By Seth Zaremba, Zinc Insurance
 
Most people feel like they pay into their homeowner’s insurance without getting much out of it. While it’s ideal for providing the security of protection and peace of mind in general, on a day-to-day basis it doesn’t appear to have much practical value.
 
But for about $25 per year, there is a little-known power shot called Equipment Breakdown Coverage that can be added to your existing homeowner’s insurance policy. It covers all of the big stuff in your house: refrigerator, stove, washer and dryer, water heater, furnace, air conditioning unit, expensive flat screen TV, water pump and more. If one of those big items brea ...

By Jeff Risner, Renaissance of Richfield/Bath
 
A river of responsibilities flows from the social activities that sustain and propel our lives. In the rush of life, we get caught up in our responsibilities to our children, spouses and co-workers. Yet many of those same responsibilities, the mainstays of aging parents or loved ones lives, have fallen away—kids grow up, spouses pass away and retirement cuts off relationships with co-workers.
 
As we age, it’s inevitable that we’ll start to drift toward social isolation. Caring for aging parents or loves ones bestows a reciprocal responsibility to enrich their lives by encouraging social activities.

By Mike Brady, Michael Brady & Co.
 
We’ve all been told that it’s important to have goals in life. Whether it’s a continuation of your lifestyle in retirement, starting a new business or running a marathon, it is important to have a vision of the future achievement of your goals.  
 
Picture yourself living the lifestyle you desire in retirement, crossing that finish line of a marathon or running a successful business. It’s also critical to have a system in place designed to achieve the goal. No one would contemplate running a marathon without having a training program in place that included a history of success in getting runners over the fini ...

By Roni Bell, HealthMarkets Insurance Agency
 
What happens to the people who either didn’t enroll in Affordable Care, hate the coverage they have, or have stopped paying their premium? Surprisingly, there are some options. 
 
1) What if you missed the open enrollment period?
Right now you’re likely without health coverage and may be faced with a tax penalty. You could qualify for special enrollment. If you don’t, we can create a patchwork of coverage to get you through the remainder of the year. You aren’t absolved from the possibility of an accident, illness or injury, so my goal is to get you some kind of protection. 
 
2) What if y ...

Preventative joint support

By Mike Ventresca, Vital Choice Healthstore
 
As I took my car in for an oil change the other day, I found myself thinking about preventive maintenance. After all, the whole reason I take the car in for regular oil changes is to extend the life of the engine and reduce my chances of seeing the dreaded check engine light. In many ways, our bodies are much the same. 
 
While I think most of us would agree there’s great value in preventive health, there are some areas where it seems we often wait for the “check engine light,” or uncomfortable symptoms to appear. One of the most common areas of procrastination is joint health. Too often, people who enjoy ...
