As you know, Joann Small is one of the leading experts on women’s issues in retirement, and these tips really confirm what she has been telling retired women for years. I found these tips in a report from the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies, which has been conducting retirement research for 13 years now. 7 years ago, they began including research and stats Read More +

Pink Tie Day at Crash Proof Retirement™

Kean and Nick started a new precedent today for the Crash Proof Retirement™ family. From now on, Friday will be pink tie day. They tried their best to get me to participate, but in my usual Grumpy Cat fashion, I refused. But just be aware and add pink tie day to the pantheon of Crash Proof Retirement theme days which now includes Justin Bieber Tuesday, Taylor Swift Thursday and now, Pink Tie Friday. We will think of an associated celebrity later. Suggestions are welcome. Kudos Read More +

Christmas in May!

Not sure what took so long, but the Christmas Party photos have made their way back to our production room. If I had to guess, I’d say it was intentional because there’s many editing capabilities we have to embarrass each other. With that said, I want to calm everyone down and assure you that I won’t be embarrassing anyone by posting my favorite picture below: The memories from the night have come pouring back in, so I make the offer: Get ’em while they’re hot! Let me know if Read More +

Frontline: The Retirement Gamble

I wanted to share this great documentary with everyone because it really validates what Phil Cannella, Joann Small and Crash Proof Retirement™ are trying to do here. The documentary is from the PBS show Frontline, and is entitled “The Retirement Gamble.” Throughout the program, they highlight all of the shady goings-on within the retirement and financial planning industries which illustrates how corrupt it actually is. When you think about the way that Crash Proof Retirement™ operates, it’s a breath of fresh air compared to the Read More +

The Crash Proof Retirement Show® Outrage of the Week!

I wrote a great Outrage of the Week segment for this weekend’s Crash Proof Retirement Show®, so make sure you all tune in and listen. I wrote it after seeing a report from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC for short) in which they detail how much they will be repaying the victims of illegal foreclosures, many of whom lost their home during the mortgage crisis that arose when the housing bubble collapsed after 2008. When you hear the Outrage of the Read More +

It was a big week for Crash Proof Retirement™ as we had two Educational Events back to back.  While it takes a lot of hard work from Phil Cannella, Joann Small and the Crash Proof Retirement™ Team, we love having the opportunity to educate so many people in or near retirement each week.  This week, we were lucky enough to speak to hundreds of retirees from in and around Ivyland, PA at Spring Mill Manor.  Here are some pictures from the event:
