About Boomer Money and More: Welcome, Boomer!
Thanks for stopping by. This is a Boomer retirement planning and “wealth” management blog. Whether you’re still working, or are now retired, this blog is for Boomers who want to protect, grow, and manage their nest-egg.
It’s for Boomers who’ve ever asked:
How do I protect and grow the money I’ve spent a lifetime earning?
How do I make sure I don’t outlive my money?
What’s the best way to increase the size of my nest-egg while I’m still working?
Should I buy long-term care insurance?
When should I take Social Security?
How can I reinvent myself in retirement?
The goal is to provide you with enough information, backed by reputable sources, that you can manage your own financial affairs. I’ll cite and link to these reputable sources.
Year Started: 2016

Hi there! I’m Michelle and I live in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. As you may have guessed from the site name, I’m a boomer. I was born at the very end of the baby boom. I am married with two daughters – one in college and one in high school.
I have worked in the financial services industry for 30 years and I’m passionate about all aspects of physical, mental and financial wellness.
I firmly believe that if everyone makes just a few small changes, we can have a positive impact on the planet.
The goal for my blog is to share positive thoughts and simple ideas you can use right away to make a difference. Learn more ►
Anthony has married his passions, investing and education. While teaching social studies full-time, he founded a registered investment advisory firm, where he constructed financial plans and oversaw $50 million in client assets. As a CFP, he has a vast knowledge of personal finance strategies; and, as an educator, he has a natural ability to explain complicated economic and financial concepts, put them into an historical context, and make the practical application of these concepts come to life. Prior to starting his teaching career, he worked in the financial industry, trading foreign currencies.
He brings to Ritholtz Wealth Management an expertise of the inner workings of the 403b market. His goal is to build awareness of the conflicted advice and poor options in these plans, and ultimately bring about much-needed reform. His blog, A Teachable Moment, helps educate investors on how to protect their interests. Learn more ►
The name’s Amanda Holden, but my pals call me Mandy, Mandicakes, Manderson Pooper, A.Hol (get it? like J.Lo but…grosser??) and—you guessed it—Dumpster Dog. Ahhhh yes, ol’ Dumpster Dog, that’s me. What you’re probably not thinking is: For a young and single working gal, that is one darling nickname!!
It’s okay—I love it. The nickname took root during a eight-month stint where I didn’t buy food (see this post for the gruesome details) and it has really stuck, glued to me like day-old bean burrito guts on a Taco Bell wrapper. The easy fusion was surely thanks to my preference for Birkenstocks and half-eaten gyros over stilettos and grooming; creativity over tedium, always. This brand of scrappiness is the very essence of Dumpster Dog, and accordingly, the perfect name for my blog on money! Learn more ►

We have committed to eliminating ALL our debt by our late 50s and early 60s while building passive income streams that will permit us to pursue a meaningful life outside the 8-5 workday. Learn more ►
