Do all signs point toward recession? If so, what do we do about it? Brian shares his take on what’s ahead.

Diversify as much as you can. One way to diversify is through real estate. Of course, don’t overlook how much work real estate can require.

Consider what you want to do long-term and how you spend your time in your retirement. There are two trends becoming more common among retirees: a lot of time on cruise ships for some while others are going back to work.
