If You Cried When Jack Thornton Died, This Blog Post is for You!

Life Goes on Roadmap No Comments

Are you one of the millions of viewers who are binge-watching #WhenCallstheHeart, presented by the Hallmark Channel?

I sure am.

Along with the other “Hearties” across the nation, I was reaching for the Kleenex when Jack Thornton’s life was tragically cut short on a routine training mission.

Here he was, a newlywed with a bright future to anticipate with his beloved wife Elizabeth, and everything they were dreaming of for a life together  was cut short as a result of a training mission gone very wrong.

Not long before this ill fated end to their fairy tale life, Jack bought some land upon which to build a dream home.

This inquiring mind and practical gal wants to know …

  • Did he designate Elizabeth as his beneficiary? He bought the land before they wed. If he didn’t make this designation, it could be that the land would pass to his mother or his brother or someone else he may have designated.
  • Did he designate Elizabeth as the beneficiary to any of his life insurance or other benefits before leaving for this ill fated mission?
  • Will Elizabeth be able to access his bank and investment accounts to help her navigate life as a widow and a single mother?
  • Did the two of them ever talk about his final wishes so she could honor them in the event that the unthinkable should happen?

These are important questions that people in real life need to consider, just in case life takes an unexpected turn.

The cautionary tales from the road of life that we’ve heard over the last year or so from real people facing unthinkable situations at the worst possible times reinforce our mission to guide families to get ahead of home burglary or the 5 D’s — disaster, disease, disability, divorce or or death — before they hit close to home.

Together with my husband Steve — a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professional — we guide families across the globe to access the keys to unlock most of what is important in their lives before life turns on a dime through a product we created called Life Goes on Roadmap™.  Our proven tools and playful approach are empowering, practical, and profound. Users welcome peace of mind, confidence, and ease in ways that are priceless to count when they get on board. We can’t wait to be of service.

THIS kind of organizing is a sock drawer of a completely different color!

Event Promotion, Information Product Success, Life Goes on Roadmap No Comments

Have you joined the millions of people who are binge-watching the new Netflix TV show starring Professional Organizer and New York Times Best-Selling Author Marie Kondo?

If you haven’t yet heard of her, she’s a powerful advocate for the life-changing magic of tidying up. Her lessons about de-cluttering and deciding what stays or goes to spark joy are showing up on late night TV, morning talk shows, and popular magazines that stack up in doctor’s offices and beauty salons everywhere.

Here is one piece of the tidying up trend that I haven’t yet heard her talk about.

What about the life-changing magic of getting your personal financial life in order?

> Can you quickly put your hands on your passport, citizenship papers, and social security card to leave the country at a moment’s notice?
>> Are you empowered to make a crucial medical decision for yourself or a loved one if or when the unthinkable happens?
>> Have you unknowingly fallen into “the beneficiary trap” so your heirs have to fight over who gets grandma’s dining room table and create hurt feelings at the worst possible time?

Neatly organized socks and t-shirts are one thing. THESE kinds of things are a sock drawer of a completely different color!

Crazy, random things happen by surprise to people we know and love more often than we care to confess.

Don’t you wonder or worry just a little bit that you could be next?

>> Could it be that you have been meaning to your financial ducks in a row, but you just haven’t gotten around to it yet?
>> Maybe you’d rather look the other way and hope for the best?
>> Perhaps the prospect of going it alone has you rushing for the TV remote to watch “Big Bang Theory” re-runs instead of spending a few smart hours getting your act together?

Here’s the good news.

If setting up your family to make the right moves on your behalf or theirs is important to you, what we have coming up just might be an answer to a prayer.

SAVE THE DATE

On March 9, we’re leading a virtual ‘get it done’ day to propel you to get your financial act together that can bring power, access and control when it really counts.

We’ve even transformed getting your financial life organized into a game to win instead of a chore to put off until later!

After investing a few hours of focused attention (and making a modest investment that will have you breathing a sigh of relief already), you’re going to clear the clutter of worry, free yourself of worse case scenarios and “what if’s”, and come out on the other side with huge peace of mind.

Best of all, you won’t be left standing in a big mess when the unexpected and unthinkable happens because you’ll have access to what you need when you need it most.

That trumps organizing your sock drawer every day of the week.

This is a way to get on the tidying up bandwagon that is truly life changing.

Join us on March 9 from wherever you live work or play and be guided to get ready for whatever life serves up without having to scramble to find the keys to unlock your life.

You won’t regret it.

We can’t wait to show you the way as you become an “I’m Ready for Anything Road Tripper” for the rest of your life.

Get on board, keep your mindset and hand gestures positive for the road ahead, and let’s do this!

Warmly,

Nancy Juetten, Your Get It Done Guide
Steve Juetten, CFP®
Co-Founders, Life Goes on Roadmap™

P.S. Make Life Goes on Roadmap™ a family affair and invite your parents, grandparents, extended family and best friends forever to join you!  Power, access and control are within your reach. Grab hold and let’s go!

#1 Amazon Best Seller Smart Money Moves Makes a Splash with Early Career Professionals and Their Parents

Book Publishing, Good News, Measuring Results No Comments

Smart Money Moves — a new book written by three fee-only financial planners — reached Amazon #1 best seller status this week as young professionals and their parents rushed to purchase their copies. The book is packed with tips, hacks and strategies to make good money decisions for a lifetime.

The book was written for professionals early in their careers about getting on track and staying on track with their money.  Smart Money Moves: Get On Track and Stay on Track Early in Your Career with These Tips, Hacks, and Strategies is available for purchase at www.amazon.com.

“Money matters are top of mind at the start of a new year. Smart Money Moves is a perfect gift or resource for 20-and-30-something professionals to help them get off to a good start managing their money.

When money questions come up around buying a car, starting a new job, or deciding to start a family or buy a house while figuring out how to pay off student debt, Smart Money Moves is the book to turn to, Juetten suggests.

Co-authors Kyle Wilke, CFP® and Chelsea Hodl, MBA, are early career professionals who confer with and advise 20 and 30-something career professionals about money matters. That is refreshing for clients who prefer to talk to peer experts as opposed to advisors who are decades older through the firm’s Financial Foundations Program.
