Joan JerkovichJuly 31, 2018

My girlfriend was in the Aurora, Colorado theatre July 20, 2012 and witnessed the mass shooting there. She didn’t get hurt, but saw people who had been shot.

Adjusting To Retirement?

Joan JerkovichJune 21, 2018

My whole career I traveled and since I’m fluent in Spanish frequently had to travel outside the country. There was a point where my stay-at-home wife and I struggled since I traveled so much, but now that I’m recently retired she doesn’t seem to want me around. She suggested I get a part-time job. Is this what retirement is supposed to be? First, make sure your retirement is what you want...
