Topic:  What is a retirement asset that most of us have but knows very much about? – Join us next Tuesday and found out!!!

What is a retirement asset that most of us have but knows very much about? – Join us next Tuesday and found out!!!

Nearly all of us control a retirement asset that is typically worth $160,000 to over half a million dollars for individuals, from a quarter million to over a million dollars for married couples.  Yet most of us know very little about how this asset works and, most important, how to get the most out of it.  The purpose of this presentation is to make you aware of this asset, to estimate its value to you and your family, and to provide guidance in how to get the most out of it.  You may be thinking at this point "I don't have an asset like that!"  That may be true for one or two people in the room.  For everyone else, trust me: you have this asset!  Don't you owe it to yourself to come in and find out about it?

Our speaker, Steve Garfink, has 35+ years' work experience in finance, strategic planning, and general management.  He enjoyed a varied career that included a position as controller for a 50 million dollar agriculture and small business development program in West Africa.  Later he went from running a franchise program of all natural ice cream and dessert cafes, to environmental services management in waste-water treatment facilities.  More recently he moved into technology opportunities in security software and vehicle automation.

Join us next Tuesday and discover your lost fortune !!!

    Steve Garfink has some great information on Social Security to share with younger workers as well as mature people. It's part of learning what we don't know so as to improve our (also share info with others) personal financial status. The information Steve shared with us is not readily available....thanks for putting it together, Steve!

    Ayelet did a wonderful job hosting today's meeting. We had lots of visitors and enthusiasm was high. I left an hour after the meeting was over and people were still meeting and networking! What an amazing group! I won't be here for the next 2 meetings since I will be at a conference in Daytona Beach, FL . . . and I will miss you all! I know the meetings will be fabulous. Take notes and let's have 1 on 1's so you can fill me in on the highlights!
