RETIREMENT: USA v. TANZANIA
My wife, Renee, and I just returned from Safari in Tanzania. I have wanted to go on safari for years, and before I was too old or feeble to enjoy it and remember where I had gone. The oldest folks there were in their 80s so I guess I did not have to worry, but I did. It was amazing.
I am not sure if you worry, or have to worry; and even if a safari is not on the top of your list of things to get done, retirement and estate planning should be.
In Tanzania, day to day existence means having enough to eat. That is true for many people in USA. Poverty shows up as a problem in every country that my wife and I have visited.
For you living in the US, it is time to do a budget, look at your resources, look at your health, look at your family and see what you have to do to make it work.
Come see me. We can talk about Tanzania, politics, where to eat, AND talk about things that worry you, things that are keeping you up at night. We can talk about why you should prepare a will, health care proxy and power of attorney.
If nothing else, we can look at pictures of lions, elephants, wart hogs and hyenas.
I look forward to meeting with you and your family.
