    I know someone who has owned his company for 25 years. For various reasons, the industry has taken a dive and so has his company. (It has nothing to do with the housing market. It’s electronics related) What is he supposed to do, at the age of 50, to find work when he has only worked for himself?

    He’ll sell the company, but that’s not going to settle the issues of retirement and living expenses, he needs to work.
    Personally, I always wanted to open a restaurant.
    I’ve been in that business 10+ years.

    Although an appealing idea, restaurants are a huge investment and high risk. I heard 70% of restaurants fail and most don’t make a profit until the 3rd year. But a franchise might be different. Something to think about thanks.

    I keep hearing people talking about how its a terrible time to be buying stock…and I keep thinking, this is an ideal time…stocks are cheap as hell. I sure like buying up the S&P at $1100 a lot better than I did at $1550 last year.

    Of course I understand if one is about to retire this is brutal, but I am in my 30s and retirement is so far off I am only interested in building stockpiling my 401k right now. Am I missing something? Is this not dollar cost averaging at its best? What gives?

    I moved in with my widowed Father after a difficult divorce, with my children. The old house wasn’t big enough for us, but I had some capital realised in the sale of my previous home so organised some alterations. The estimate was within budget – with 10% added for unforeseen extras – so we went ahead.
    Now we have a problem. The final bill is £13 000 above the estimate.
    I could raise a mortgage, to cover the bill and allow a little for finishing touches, but my 89 year old Father is on the deeds (with me) and will need to sign – he will be so afraid of being thrown on the street, it might make him very ill – especially as a solicitor has to tell him about the risk before he signs (will explain he might lose his home). However, the bill would be paid and we would have money left to be safe and comfortable. Fixed repayment is easily within our budget at the moment and I could probably raise the amount (at a push) if made redundant. I would be mortgage free in 10 years, with a few years left before I retire, to save for a happy retirement.
    However, the mortgage insurance is fixed at almost as much as the mortgage payment! Therefore, I would have no option (as I couldn’t cover both) but to do without the mortgage insurance. If I was given notice at work, I would have to sell quickly in order to purchase a much cheaper and smaller property – using savings to keep the mortgage going until we sold.
    The house is in a beautiful place, being the family home for many years. With the extensions and alterations, it would quickly attract a buyer (though we would obviously not get its true value). My father has already indicated he doesn’t mind what we do, as long as we are all together with our own home (when we discussed whether to extend or move).
    I could take out an unsecured loan of £10000 and make up the rest from savings, but the repayment is variable rate and would be at least £200 per month to begin with and might grow outside my disposable income (which is pitifully small). The outstanding £3,000 would be made up of joint savings, taking away any chance of comfort or safety. We may not be able to keep my father as warm as he likes in the winter, or buy his favourite (cheap) treats. That’s no way to live at 89.
    I work full time with “extended hours” and can’t take on a second job. I have no partner and two dependent children. My father has a very small pension.
    I need the money quickly, to pay the builders. They have been paid the sum of the estimate and as we have only had minor changes, I anticipated a final bill of £5,000 or £6,000 at the most (which I could meet by “topping up” an existing loan which has a lowish rate – it would cost about the same as the mortgage). They didn’t supply any details of costs or estimates after the initial paperwork (although I often asked what they would charge, they would reply, oh, not much).
    My job is about 50% secure at full time. It is 90% unlikely to disappear but my hours may be reduced after Christmas, which is why I hesitate to go for a mortgage (plus the effect it may have on my father). I have skills I can use to raise money on an hourly rate to pay back a loan, but the risk is really scary.
    What do you advise? Or, is there another alternative that I haven’t considered?
    I don’t smoke, or drink regularly, or have huge credit card bills, or have a car worth more than £700. I don’t own jewellery or art or antiques. I don’t holiday abroad or wear anything but cheap clothes. One of my children has serious health issues (another reason we extended, as she is likely to become wheelchair dependent at some point).
    I took a risk which I thought was fine, but circumstances (with my job and builders’ costs) have changed. I want to take on the responsibility to put it right, but cannot take on a second job – I work from 8 to 6 and overtime two hours a night (or at weekend). By the time I’ve done this and the house, I’m exhausted. Stress is making me underachieve at work, which is so counterproductive!

  5. My husband works as an architect in another country with a small, private, but successful architectural firm. We want to try to expand the firm to offer the option of houses and condos to the retirement communities. They are know for original designs, quality work with very reasonable prices compared to other firms. If you have any suggestions as to the best way to advertise (internet, magazines, specific locations, or economic advertising companies) I would really appreciate the assistance. I am personally planning to be the coordinator/ manager/ translator. Thank you so much.

  6. Financial s are showing better earnings. I thought we had a financial crisis going on. Does this mean we should buy financial now.

    I am a single woman in my mid-30s and unfortunately have not been able to save much for retirement. My 401k from a previous job has been all but decimated in the last year, and I am not eligible yet to join my new company’s plan. I sought to open a Roth IRA, but the financial adviser my credit union recommended me to is actually an insurance salesman. He wants to sell me a whole life insurance policy with a $169k death benefit that would cost me $100 per month. I keep reading that whole life insurance is typically a bad investment unless you plan to keep the policy for more than 20 years. If I sign up for the policy, I would do so with the intention of keeping it as a long-term investment. The term insurance I have through work would only pay my beneficiary $35k, and I would prefer that my mortgage and other potential bills not be left for someone else to take care of if I got hit by a car and killed tomorrow. The projected rate of return over 30+ years looks good, but I do realize the guaranteed rate is the only, well, guarantee. And I understand my premium will stay the same unless I opt to buy more insurance. But everything I am reading from financial experts (Suze Orman, for instance) says it is better to buy term insurance and invest the difference. Is this a blanket guideline?Can a small whole life insurance policy ever be a good idea in combination with other investment strategies? I am so confused.
