At The Flick of a Switch…
Let there be light.
How many light bulbs does it take to get someone to see?
That is a spin on the popular jokes about changing light bulbs, and the fact that something so simple can be made to be a difficult task.
As I am becoming, I hope, better able to see the truth about the life I am living, I am becoming increasingly aware of my fellow men and women who are also seeking enlightenment. Many of us are so blessed to have reached a stage in our lives that allows for real introspection and personal growth.
Our country is in the midst of major changes, begun many years ago with civil rights laws ensuring equal access to the fundamental rights assured to all Americans. Having a President who is non-White has been a challenge for too many Americans accustomed to the “old way” of living.
And thus my question…how must we change in order to see that a new way to approach our lives is good and necessary?
Far too many of the people I know, and now meet, are unable to retire and thus live, on the residual/retirement plan that they invested in for more than 30 years. What is there to do now? How can one be expected to start a new career? Develop a new way to earn a living.
I have chosen to market a home-based business that allows families and businesses the opportunity to access legal advice, on any matter, for a small monthly fee. It has also allowed me to prepare my Will, Living Will and Healthcare directive, as part of my membership. In my discussions with friends and others, it is shocking to discover how few of them have any type of estate plan in place.
As one who has personally seen the confusion and chaos that ensues when someone dies without an estate plan, I am asking you to love your family enough to get yours completed and discuss it with them.
Thus, my goal is to get the word out about two crucial needs in our country:
1. Affordable access to getting an estate plan prepared
2. Earning a passive, residual income, with minimal expense, working from home
Now, do me a favor and bring me that ladder…I have to change that bulb.
