Shelley returned home from the hospital last Tuesday evening and has been recovering at a good pace. She is out for her daily walks, and will participate in all three of her livestreams this week!


Hello ,

We wanted to share this informative excerpt from Shelley's LinkedIn article with you:

Retirement in 2022: We're All Getting Punched in the Face!

As that great philosopher, Mike Tyson said, "Everybody's got a plan until they get punched in the face." I think we're all getting punched in the face in 2022, so far.

This is a quote from a savvy financial advisor, Mike Allison. My business partner, Toby Younis, interviewed him last week for our live stream podcast, Messages and Methods.

Over the weekend, I edited the transcript of that interview into a blog post, Explore Your Retirement Living Options.

The quote from Mike about getting punched in the face is a difficult reality for people like my husband and me. We've planned and saved for retirement for the past 38 years. We would have put it off one or two more years, but battling cancer has become my husband's full-time occupation, so we can't wait any longer.

Here is an excerpt from the interview I found to be especially enlightening:

Michael Allison: The financial services industry created this idea that you have to accumulate, save and invest to build up a piggy bank to take with you out of your working life and into whatever you want to do in terms of relaxation, recreation, and volunteer work.

Here's our next week in content:

7 pm, Wednesday, September 7, 2022. New Mexico Day Trips with Shelley and Toby

Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa


Day trip to a resort? You bet! Honestly, it's a cultural experience that you can enjoy without ever registering at the hotel.

Order a cup of coffee and a burrito at the Trading Post and sit in the atrium and watch the sun rise from behind the Sandias.

Relax in the Rio Grande Grill while enjoying a top-shelf margarita or sampling a tequila flight while sharing plates of their tempting comfort food at this vibrant dining and gathering spot. Sit on the patio for spectacular sunset views of the Sandia Mountains.

Or, for dinner, visit the newly renovated Santa Ana Cafe, featuring indigenous-influenced casual American fare, local New Mexico classics, and vegetarian and gluten-free options. Dine indoors or on the beautiful covered patio with views of Tuyuna Mesa. Don't order from the menu until you've checked out the buffet!

Are you overly reliant on social media? What if social media disappeared? What would you do?

Our show talks a lot about creating content and running a business using digital marketing tactics. In this episode, Jen and Shelley discuss what they would do if social media suddenly disappeared. They discuss how they would change their marketing strategies, develop their business, and even who they would reach out to and how they would go about reaching them.
