I just wanted to share with you my experience with Jen Cannella. I had a partial delivery scheduled yesterday. The day before another contract for this delivery came in. Using logic I thought I would run past the design team, that if possible, I could swing by the office and pick up the additional contract. When I first approached the DT it was mentioned that Jen was the person in charge. However, the DT was very busy and probably will not be able to get the additional Read More +
Soon we will be debuting a new video which delves into the fascinating history of Phil Cannella, the enigmatic founder of Crash Proof Retirement™. The video covers his childhood in Folcroft, PA, his later success in the Marine Corps physical fitness competition, and his eventual career dedication to helping retirees because of the struggles his grandfather endured. I’ve posted a graphic I’ve created for the video below.
We, in the Crash Proof™ Production department, just received a new piece of equipment that mounts to the end our camera crane. It will allow us to tilt and pan the camera via controls at the base of the crane. This, coupled with a new remote zoom feature, allows us to capture dramatic shots of Phil Cannella as he presents at our Crash Proof Retirement™ Educational Events. Looking ahead, our productions will include shots from new angles never before captured by our cameras that were Read More +
On Tuesday, Phil Cannella, Joann Small and the whole Crash Proof Retirement™ Team were happy to be hosting another Educational Event in New Jersey. This time, we were in Marlton at Fleming’s Steakhouse. The Crash Proof™ Production Crew snapped some great stills from the event and as usual, I wanted to share them with everyone. This is probably my favorite picture from the event. It really shows how Phil Cannella enjoys spending time talking to retirees on a personal basis, and helping them through the Read More +
Don’t miss the Outrage of the Week on the Crash Proof Retirement Show this weekend. The government is threatening to once again take us all over the edge with this sequester stuff. Why should you be outraged about their playground behavior? Tune in and listen….
I thought this was an interesting story. Really gives credence to Phil and Joann’s argument that fiduciary responsibility is needed on Wall Street. Best-selling author Patricia Cornwell was forced to sue her Wall Street-based financial advising firm for negligence in mismanaging her multi-million dollar portfolio. Cornwell claimed in court that the advisors managing her money put her in investments that were all but certain to lose cash. She also argued that these analysts deliberately placed her in certain investment vehicles–many with poor track records–that profited them, but Read More +
Lisa snapped this great photo from today’s event: That’s our very own Keith of the Crash Proof Retirement™ Team lifting two chairs at once, proving once again that he is the world’s strongest man. Most people would struggle to lift even a single chair, but Keith is able to lift two at once, with the ease of a comic book superhero. So kudos to you Keith.
The praises seem to be pouring in from Crash Proof™ clients who have been extremely pleased with the services coming from the design team. This week Phil Cannella received a letter from a client that had recently sat with Matthew Brennen for their annual review. As we all have come to learn, Matt is a hard worker and loves to see his work pay off by protecting consumers and helping them achieve a safe and comfortable Crash Proof Retirement™. It’s always appreciated when others take their time to acknowledge Read More +
These donuts were a welcome sight in the break room this morning. For those who don’t know, here at First Senior Financial Group, we do a “Breakfast Club” rotation that I have come to call the Crash Proof™ Breakfast Club. Today’s selection was some donuts, muffins, crossaints and sticky buns from Giant. Thanks to Matt (the other one, not me…) for bringing in such a great spread. Phil Cannella stopped into the break room, and upon seeing the donuts, he remarked that they wouldn’t Read More +
This morning John Connolly of Retirement Media, Inc. recorded a great, yet disturbing, Outrage of the Week for The Crash Proof Retirement Show® with Phil Cannella and Joann Small. His report will bring you back into the twisted world of the Madoff’s and after listening your blood will be boiling. Listen here

Someone decided to leave the office a treat in the break room this morning, which takes shape as a delicious tomato salad and some fresh bread to go along with it. They even left notes welcoming all to enjoy, but they did not take claim to their giving nature by signing off on the notes. To whoever brought in this delightful treat, we applaud you for your altruism and generosity, and so do our taste buds. So kudos to you mystery chef!
Here’s a great shot of our team of Retirement Educators, taken by our very own Lisa at yesterday’s Crash Proof Retirement™ Educational Event. I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank our educators for all the hard work they put in and all the great things they do for the retirees that work with First Senior Financial Group. Thanks again, for everything you do for us. Also you can see Mike lurking in the background there, so thanks to the Crash Proof Retirement™ Read More +
Since demand for our educational events was so high in the Princeton, New Jersey area, we had to schedule another educational event just to catch the overflow from the last two events. Even so, the crowd is bigger than we could have hoped. Phil Cannella is so excited to be speaking to the retirees in this area and educating them about what they can expect in retirement. Here he is getting ready for the show: Here you can see Phil Cannella supervising the setup Read More +
As John and Kean mentioned, we will be doing a double-header of events this week at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in Princeton, NJ. While at the event, Kean snapped a few pictures for me, and I thought I’d post them here for posterity. Good luck to Phil Cannella, Joann Small and the entire Crash Proof Retirement™ Team at today’s event! Good luck with the Crash Proof™ event today everyone, I’ll be holding down the fort here at the office 😉
Phil Cannella and Joann Small gave the overflow crowd at Ruth Chris’s Steakhouse a lot to ponder about their retirement nest eggs. With Wall Street doing what it does best–namely fleecing the average investor–it is more important than ever to ‘crash-proof’ thier nest eggs, Phil and Joann told the retirees and soon-to-be-retirees. Many seemed to agree with the crash-proof duo.
Just wanted to give everyone in the office a heads up on why it may seem a little quiet around the office this week. Due to overwhelming demand of retirees in the tri-state area registering to receive an exclusive Crash Proof Retirement™ education, we had to open up a second venue this week to make sure that we are reaching out to as many retirees as we can. I know from speaking with Phil Cannella and Joann Small personally that it is their goal to Read More +
Today First Senior Financial Group received a letter from a very happy Crash Proof consumer. So in response to this letter I would like to say congratulations to Peter Kim, and kudos to Peter and his department for performing above the standard that has already been put in place. Exceptional work!
Mike sent me a few more photos of Joann Small, Phil Cannella and the Crash Proof Retirement™ Team from the Crash Proof Retirement™ Event yesterday at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in Princeton, NJ. I thought I’d share them with the rest of you: Thanks for the photos Mike, I hope everyone enjoys them!
I’m getting kind of lonely back here at the office, with everyone out at the Crash Proof Retirement Event at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in Princeton, NJ. Luckily our intrepid reporter Kean was on the scene to snap a few pictures of the guys getting set up. You can see some members of the Crash Proof Retirement™ Team getting set up for the event, there’s Alex in the foreground, and Stringer talking to Phil Cannella about how to get things situated. Keith is nowhere to Read More +
I want to give a shout-out to Dan Dougherty! He came in today and gave Phil Cannella some very important information about billionaires pulling out of the stock market! Great points to make at tomorrow’s seminar and every week! Apparently famed people from Warren Buffet to George Soros are selling off their shares and stocks at a mad rate! John is putting this together in bullet points for Phil Cannella to cover at tomorrow’s educational event. Although the market appears to be going up what Read More +
Saturday’s Crash Proof Retirement Show was one hour because of the Temple basketball game, but long on information for people looking to crash-proof their retirement nest eggs. The Outrage of the Week touched on possible stock market troubles that could be heading investor’s ways this year. With ineffective government regulations and an overheated stock market, the time could be ripe for another crash, according to the Outrage. Stay tuned.
As our day was coming to an end at the office, Phil Cannella and Joann Small were just returning from a late lunch. Staying true to their character, the two of them came bearing gifts as they lined up the break room with an assortment of wraps and sandwiches for the office to enjoy. Perhaps the best part of this experience was sharing a caesar wrap with my snack bro. Once again, I am giving Phil and Joann major kudos for their generosity.
So I’ve solved the mystery of why there were meatballs in the break room today… As in turns out, some of our office-mates were planning a baby shower for Traci. So thanks to everyone who brought in food, you made my (and Keith’s) day. Phil Cannella even managed to take some time out of his busy schedule to stop by and join us. Thanks to everyone who made this event a success. Here’s a few snapshots from the shower, with our lovely model, Kean: Read More +
It’s been a busy week on Wall Street with new allegations surfacing about the banks and their political co-dependants. Listen this weekend as the Outrage of the Week once again takes you through that magical portal called the revolving door exposing another “inside job” done on the average investor.
To the person who brought this into the office: You are my hero, thanks. Hoagies and Meatball sandwiches, best thing ever.
Here’s a shot of Phil Cannella from the Crash Proof™ Educational Event yesterday at Downingtown Country Club. According to my buddy Kean, Phil and Joann Small were on point as usual, working hard to educate the retirees from the Downingtown Area. Unfortunately for those of us who were stuck back at the office, there weren’t any leftover meals to bring home. Oh well, looks like I’ll be eating Peanut Butter and Jelly for lunch again…
For those of you who had to stick around the office and hold the fort, I thought I would share with you how the event was yesterday. Also, I am gonna get a little tricky here, as this post will serve as THREE DIFFERENT CATEGORIES! Gonna be giving out some Kudos, while also providing some Client Feedback, all while recapping a Crash Proof Event. So stay with me as I attempt to pull off this incredible feat. First and foremost, another big kudos to Mike and the production crew. You Read More +
Hey everyone! I’ve been posting quite a bit on this new blog at www.thetruthaboutcannella.com, and so has Phil Cannella himself. If you have a few minutes of downtime, check out the site, I’m sure you’ll find some interesting things on there. This is my latest post about the WOGL 98.1 Loves Our Kids Radiothon benefiting Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia that we were a part of in 2012. Mike put together this great video with Cadillac Jack talking about how great it was to see our Read More +
While loading the Crash Proof Retirement Van for another Crash Proof Retirement Educational Event, I was delighted when I found room for our new camera crane! This new piece of equipment will allow us to capture dramatic shots of Phil Cannella as he educates consumers in or near retirement on safe alternatives to securities. The crane will give us a bird’s eye view and allow a new camera angle that will enhance Retirement Media, Inc. productions. We, on the production crew, can’t wait to put it to Read More +
