2016-10-02 Epic Retirement With Assim Inshirah & Ed Fulbright On Mastering Your Money Radio

Epic Retirement

About 30 days ago, we talked about Life After Work which was more about the quantitative process of retirement.   This month we want to discuss “Epic Retirement” is more of the qualitative process of retirement.  Quantitative and Qualitative may be causing some of our listeners to say, what are you talking about?  So let me break it down like this last month was about the money and this month is about the quality of retirement.

When retirement was created people only lived for 1 or 2 years as retired.  Now, it is not uncommon for people to spend 25 to 35 years in retirement.  A WSJ article indicated if you delay your retirement by 1 year, you could increase your longevity by 11%.  EPIC stand for Engage, Purpose, Integration and Challenge.  If you have these four things in your retirement, you can have a successful retirement.  Some people are looking at their retirement accounts as their autonomy fund or independence account.

Joining us for this discussion on Epic Retirement is Assim Inshirah who is the station’s operation manager and makes sure Mastering Your Money is available to our listeners.

2016-09-25 Greater Success Just Requires A Little More Effort with Michael Alden & Ed Fulbright On Mastering Your Money Radio

Michael Alden Interview- Greater Success Just Requires A Little More Effort

Do you want greater success at work and in your career?  Making small changes to reach your goals is key.  5% greater effort is a small number but it will make a difference in your life.
Increase results, not activities, by 5% More – Don’t focus on activities, focus on results.  Looking at how to increase your results, even by a small amount, will help you recognize and eliminate actions that waste your time. Save your company 5% More – If you can identify a small change that can save your employer thousands of dollars, you will increase your net worth to the company.  Discussing that savings during your performance review will help you get a raise. Work 5% longer – Putting in an extra few minutes at work each day seems minor, but completing an additional task, week after week, will help you increase your chances for promotions and raises.

 If you are a business owner, Do something 5% differently than your competitors: Be a little more creative and think a little bit harder than your competitors.  Whether it is going the extra mile in customer service, or offering a product that's just slightly better than that of your competitors, makes the difference in winning sales.  Motivate your team to give 5% More:  Your business will never grow, if your team keeps doing the same thing over and over again. Invest 5% more in training and supporting them, so that they can do the best job possible.

Joining us for our discussion on Greater Success Just Requires A Little More Effort  is Michael Alden who is calling in from his Beverly MA office.  Michael Alden is the founder and CEO of Blue Vase Marketing, a multi-million dollar marketing firm that has been ranked by Inc.

2016-09-11 Value Driven Marketing With David Avrin & Ed Fulbright On Mastering Your Money Radio

David Avrin Interview- Value Driven Marketing:  

Before the digital age, we might walk into a car showroom and say “tell me about this car”. Now, armed with every detail, price comparison and review, we walk in and ask “why should you get my business”? We know everything now. It’s a new customer/salesperson relationship and the old rules of marketing no longer apply.  HOW DO YOU WIN IN BUSINESS WHEN EVERYONE IS GOOD?
Why do so many companies fail so miserably? Why do high-priced ad agencies and marketing firms keep spitting out stupid campaigns?
Too many in business have failed to recognize the shift that has happened right under their noses. It's not so much that people have changed; it's that the business landscape has changed—dramatically. For the first time in human history, we have no unmet needs. Every problem has a solution, and many companies now find themselves creating solutions that appear to be looking for a problem.

Joining us for our discussion on Value Driven Marketing  is  who is calling in from his Boston MA office .  Business marketing pro DAVID AVRIN, CSP, is known as The Visibility Coach. A popular keynote speaker, consultant, and business coach, he has presented to enthusiastic audiences across North America and in more than 20 countries around the world. Avrin has worked with more than 3,000 company CEOs and other top leaders and their organizations to help uncover, envision, craft, and promote meaningful competitive advantages. Avrin’s company, Visibility International, LLC, is based outside Denver, CO.  His latest book is VISIBILITY MARKETING: The No-Holds-Barred Truth About What It Takes to Grab Attention, Build Your Brand, and Win New Business.

2016-09-04 Life After Work With Aasim Inshirah & Ed Fulbright On Mastering Your Money Radio

 Life After Work:

“Life After Work” requires retirement income planning and really is all about creating a good life for yourself after you leave your primary job. It doesn’t mean you won’t necessarily work. In fact, many boomers are planning to continue working in some capacity after they leave their main job. But hopefully the work you do in retirement won’t feel like work. Work is the thing you’re getting away from. Life is what you are moving toward.
Now – like anything else you buy or invest in – you need to figure out how to fund your life after work. You need a budget and a plan. For many of us, we are talking 30 years here where you are responsible for your own paycheck. Given the length of time we're looking at, you need to have a retirement income plan.
Joining us for this discussion on Life After Work  is Aasim Inshirah who is the station’s operation manager and makes sure Mastering Your Money is available to our listeners.
