Plan Well, Retire Well

Saving and investing your money

Announcing the Launch of ...


Earlier this summer I did a workshop on using social media for colleagues. Our workshop began at 9:00 a.m., and I started the workshop by asking everyone to think about what they had done BEFORE they arrived.

I asked them "what did you tune into since you woke up this morning?" and to please stand up as soon as something I said pertained to them, and then to raise a limb (arm or leg) if something else applied. So, now I'll ask you the same thing. By 9:00 this morning, did you tune into:

  • Twitter,
  • Facebook,
  • radio,
  • newspaper,
  • TV,
  • news online,
  • talk to someone?

Are you hopping yet? Well, before I had gone very far into this list at the workshop I had several people complaining that they didn't have enough limbs to stand on! I was surprised how many people had tuned into more than one or two sources of information by 9:00 a.m.

We have many, many wonderful ways to gather information these days, and that means as an educator I'm challenged to provide research-based, meaningful information in a variety of formats. If you're reading this, then you already know about the Plan Well, Retire Well blog and I hope it provides you with timely, useful information about saving and investing money.

You may have been familiar with our Plan Well, Retire Well website. That website is currently unavailable as we work on revising and updating it.

However, the good news is that we are pleased to announce the launch of the Plan Well, Retire Well Facebook page. This Facebook page will complement the information that you read on this blog, but it will be different than the blog. (You realize this means you need to visit both the blog and Facebook? I knew you'd catch on quickly!) On our Facebook page look for:

  • Links to timely articles,
  • Featured websites,
  • Money saving tips,
  • Interesting infographics,
  • Updates on new money and consumer-related apps,
  • Contests,
  • Polls and more!
Oh, it'll be lots of fun!!!

Please consider yourself invited to "like" our new Plan Well, Retire Well Facebook page.

One more thing ... do you tweet? If you like Twitter, please follow me @morethancoupons where we take money management beyond clipping coupons.

I'm looking forward to tuning in with you here at the blog, on Facebook, and through Twitter. Got a question or a financial tip you'd like to share? You now have an abundance of places to write your questions or comments; I look forward to conversing with you!
