I was struck hard yesterday by the loss of a friend and colleague. “It wasn’t her
time.” She was only 37 years old, leaving behind a 6-year old daughter and a loving

Do you have self-sustaining, passive income independent of your earnings?
Do you have a sellable business? If not, what are you doing to correct that?
Are you prepared for higher taxes and inflation? How will those factors affect
your retirement plans?
