Why These Products?

I only recommend products that I personally think are good and have used myself or on my clients.  However, we are all different, so what has worked for me or my clients may not necessarily work for you.  But I have had wonderful experiences with these products--as have many of my clients--and hope they will work beautifully for you as well.

Books and Services Recommendations:

A Classic in Clown Shoes by Becky Kueker

This book is an absolute page-turner, taking readers on an emotional roller coaster ride that leaves them      wanting more after they’ve read the final page.  The book is structured around Becky’s physical and emotional journey of fear, depression, courage, humor and discovery following a complicated surgery.  Along the way she shares the often untold stories of those who have navigated the financial and emotional challenges of retirement—their despair, hope and re-invention.  It’s an eye-opening, gut-wrenching, often hilarious and refreshingly honest look at a major turning point in each of our lives.
