Hint: It is not to produce income; learn what kinds of bonds belong – and which don’t belong – in retirees’ accounts; know how to choose between individual bonds, bond ladders, bond mutual funds, and fixed-income ETFs; discover the real risk of bonds that most underplay. And while at it, better understand what happened in 2022, a notably bad year for bonds; find out the secrets to successful bond trading.
  2. Understand why age 50 isn’t just for catching up; learn about one of the most overlooked early withdrawal strategies financial professionals miss; uncover a whole new way to define your home as part of your portfolio of wealth; discover why age 63 is so important for many Medicare enrollees worried about tax diversification; learn why 70½ is the age of the QCD Pivot; engage your clients ages 50+ in new and meaningful ways.
  3. Identify and better understand your own preferred communication style; identify strengths, limitations and preferences of four core communication styles we most often encounter; review and appreciate different communication strengths and weaknesses others bring to a relationship; review some proven questions to ask yourself for effectively “adapting” your communication style in retirement counseling interactions; prepare yourself to build more trust and to reduce relationship tension.
