Better Retirement Decisions

Robert Laura, Retirement Activist

What if I told you clients don’t always make retirement decisions that are in their best interest? What if I said I could explain why some people thrive while others struggle with their new life after work? Reality is, there is a new narrative for retirement, one where “Better Retirement Decisions” need to include aspects of psychology and human behavior in order to disrupt old and outdated beliefs and create new paths and patterns.


Hack Your Habits

John Kennedy, Neuroplastician, Master Executive Brain Coach | International Speaker | Process Efficiency Consultant

We all have habits; some we like and some we’d like to change. Habits are something neuroscientists call a “zombie system”. Just as zombies function without thinking, our habits can take control without our conscious supervision. Yet, they define our effectiveness in everything we do. There is a common myth that it takes 6 weeks to change a habit. Yet, by understanding and utilizing the power of our brains to change from repetition called neuroplasticity, we can change habits much faster – sometimes in less than an hour!
