Important to see this coming so we can be ready to adapt – and perhaps “surf” the changes, Vs. getting swamped. Retirement Singularity focuses on personal and financial implications to help you survive and thrive.

One current example of this is stem cell therapy.

Retirement Planning; Are You Gambling With Your Future?

MN_CBCinterview

CBC TV needed a financial planner to provide some comments about a story they were doing on a big lottery jackpot. What was prompting their interest was a recent survey that suggested a large percentage of Canadians were “planning” on either a lottery win or an inheritance as a component in their financial future! For those who have been following the Retirement Singularity blog, you will know that I believe conventional thinking about retirement is missing the HUGE implications that advances in technology will have on our lives.
