Some thoughts on retirement for small business owners

Tease photo

Having retired three times myself, and having coached a number of executives as they prepare themselves to leave the world of active business, I’ve come to the sad conclusion that for a great many Americans, and society as a whole, the current model for retirement is dysfunctional, serving neither the real interests of society nor those of the individual.

HAYDEN CHAMBER: North Idaho — a special place to live and work

Tease photo

If good news should be shared, great news ought to be shouted. Last December when I was visiting my son in New York, a restaurant server asked me where I was visiting from. Proudly I said, Idaho, North Idaho. The server smiled and said, tell me about it (As an aside, that’s a great question, and so much nicer than where’s that?!). I smiled and said, “North Idaho is full of amazing people. It’s the type of area where you know your neighbors and bump into people you know at the grocery store and out at events. There’s a sense of community pride."
