The Middle Class is Disappearing…



“The middle class is disappearing” has been a standard line during this election cycle.  As it turns out, it’s not wrong…”

These words caught my attention as I breezed through my morning reading on the NPR News application on my smartphone.

Middle class is a term which is rather abstract and undefined in the world we live in.  Some young people may have never experienced a world where the middle class was vibrant, growing, and empowered.

Life Insurance and Smiles


I am lucky to have Facebook friends who are people I met when I was a financial advisor and insurance agent. We worked together to get them a financially appropriate solution to their life insurance needs. Now I watch as the families post photos of the adults (who change a little) and the children who keep growing and changing a lot. Whenever I see photos of them I just have a sense of calmness knowing they are now well in the care of their parents…and that their parents cared enough to plan for the unthinkable. Not everyone needs life insurance, but I believe everyone should have the conversation about what happens “If”.
