I’d love to have financial security and focus more on giving back. I don’t think I need a lot of $ to live comfortably so it would be nice to hear from others and share wisdom (echoing Loraine)

I think I finally have adjusted to drastically smaller income after being forced to retire due to medical issues. I had an "ok" level of debt when making over six figures for many years, but quit working in 2008 just as house value collapsed along with my savings in stock market. All three at same time destroyed me financially, but comfortable enough now that I paid off a loan last month, but not saving or investing anything. Any advice?

I am 67yo. I remember getting dinged for maybe $50/ea on unplanned but necessary expenses. I even remember the $100 dings. This week-need to replace car battery=$234, garage door failed in subzero weather=$250; annual pet well check =$225; Annual agreement on HVAC=$198. My pension/SS doesn’t grow at this rate. I am at a loss as to what to do. My income $🔽 2020 due to Covid. I got a lousy $10 credit on my income taxes. Very frustrating

Miracles do happen. It turned out that the battery cost me $280. The garage door replacement $550. BUT-I recd a check out of the blue from my deceased husbands oil royalties that covered these expenses. God is Good!

First time poster here. I've recently had some concerns about the state of the stock market, inflation, expensive valuations, market corrections and the like. I'm too small of an investor to have a personal money manager and my assets are invested in a mutual fund type vehicle. I'd love to know what the managers are thinking, how they are dealing with the volatility in the world and what their strategies are. I obviously don't expect anyone to tell me but I feel a kind of tension like I'm having blind faith in these people and I have no idea what they're planning to do with my life savings. Does anyone have any thoughts?

Wasn't sure where to post this, long story short basically I use Gumtree here in the UK to sell stuff etc. I've had a email from someone who is interested in the item I'm selling. The person said her mum is interested in the item and showed me a link with her mum's email address not sure if it's safe to click on incase it's a spam email. I've had similar emails in the past but never clicked on anything.

Setting goals helps trigger new behaviors, helps guides your focus and helps you sustain that momentum in life. Goals also help align your focus and promote a sense of self-mastery. ... Setting goals not only motivates us, but can also improve our mental health and our level of personal and professional success. Join us 9am central Monday at Joyful Retirement as we talk about how to find and set a goal that you can follow.
