Do Stock Market Numbers Really Matter?

The market value growth, total return focused (Modern Portfolio Theory) approach just doesn’t cut it for developing a retirement income ready investment portfolio… a portfolio that actually grows the income and the working investment capital regardless of the gyrations of the stock market.

Finding a personal source of spirituality and faith, whether religious or non-religious, when life gets too challenging. “I never believed, as many do, that I had to go to a house of worship to feel a spiritual connection-that all the benefits of religion could be absorbed by just being in synagogue and saying prayers I had memorized but did not understand. None of that made sense to my logical mind.”
