 Always Being Together: Episode 086 - Rock Your Retirement Show | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 33:57

I was SO excited that I got to Catherine and Barry Cohen. I am sort of a “fangirl” (but not in a creepy weird way), They have a podcast I listen to all of the time called Together 24/7 and I am a fan! It’s about building businesses together but we talked about always being together. Which, they pretty much are! Barry said that he and Catherine were genetically programmed to work together. Catherine’s parents built a retail shoe business and have worked together most of their 55 plus years of marriage. Barry’s father is 83 years old and still working! They said that he wouldn’t know what to do with himself and his wife would end up killing him if he was home all day every day.  (Sound familiar?) Barry and Catherine are business strategists and have a company called Business Solutions for Growth. They work with businesses to help them create a plan of action for their business. We talked about what starting a business as a couple after retirement might look light. Retirement can be boring. A lot of people do this not necessarily for the money, but to do something they really enjoy. Obviously, you love each other, but If you don’t like each other, retirement is going to be hard. Some couples enjoy always being together however, there are some things Barry and Catherine say are important to remember: * Find common ground * Communicate * Have mutual respect for each other * Enjoy each other What if always being together isn’t for you? * Vacation separately * Have days to hang out with friends * Keep the things you were doing separately before you retired * Decide which activities you enjoy doing together and what activities you want to do separately. Regardless of whether you plan on spending every minute together in your retirement or plan on doing things separately, Barry and Cat say you should figure it out before retirement. Decide what you are going to do, write a list and talk about it. Prepare for always being together. If you are thinking of creating a business, Barry and Catherine have offered my listeners a FREE 30-minute discovery session. You can contact them at info@businesssolutionsforgrowth.com or by calling 602-399-7430 This post about Retirement Lifestyle first appeared on http://RockYourRetirement.com How do you handle always being together?

 RE029: Passion for Art in Retirement - Rock Your Retirement Show | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 38:14

Henry interviews Di Lockwood on her passion for art. Before retiring at the age of 54, Di was a teacher for about 37 years. She always has a strong love for art and she knew once she retired she was going to pursue her passion for art. She even planned and prepared for it before she retired by studying and taking courses. When she did retire, she took up visual arts and decided she like printmaking the most. Di created an art gallery in her home. It is a not for profit gallery and she only charged a small amount just to help pay for the insurance she has to have. Di doesn’t do what she does for the money (she doesn’t really make money) she truly loves what she does and has a true passion for art. Henry sat down with her and talked about her passion.  Di talked about her experience teaching art. She told us a story of a young man from Afghanistan who she said, was extremely talented. He had never painted once in his life until he was in the Darwin Detention Center. (Which is an Australian Immigration detention facility) Henry and Di also talk about: * How she made a studio in her home  (wouldn’t that be lovely!) * Her idea to set up a not for profit art gallery for emerging artists * How she was able to provide a space where refugee women could gather and she helped them establish themselves in the community * Jackson Pollock’s painting ‘Blue Poles’ Not to be outdone, Di has her own Facebook Page!  If you would like to check out Di’s Facebook go to: https://www.facebook.com/groups/librandogma/ Thank YOU for telling your friends about the show, leaving comments below, and sharing episodes you really like on Facebook, and reviewing the show on iTunes.

Let’s face it, our spouses can get on our nerves! And once you retire, you’re gonna be spending even more glorious (or not so glorious) time together. In this episode, I talk with Lori Ann Davis on marriage advice after retirement. Lori has over 28 years’ experience empowering individuals and couples to live richer, happier lives. I asked her to come on the show because she is the author of Unmasking Secrets to Unstoppable Relationships: How to Find, Keep and Renew Love and Passion in Your Life. You want a marriage that is not only surviving but is actually thriving. According to Lori, just because you don’t fight and your marriage seems OK, it doesn’t necessarily mean it is. She gives some great marriage advice after retirement. Key Elements for working on your marriage (and Lori says yes, you have to work on your marriage all the time)  * Constantly reconnect with each other * Be interested * Get to know them on a deeper level * Make sure you are spending enough time together * Talk about your expectations for this phase of your life * Discuss your dreams and interests The Do’s and Don’ts DO: * Discover who your spouse is * Date each other * Remember why you chose each other DON’T * Spend 24/7 together * Rush into anything if you have grown apart * Spend zero amount of time together What do you do if you have grown apart? * Sit down and start dating each other again * Look for the positives and the good things * Renew the passion and intimacy * Flirt * Sit next to each other * Stop for a kissing break * Entice * Hold hands * Leave a flirty message on the pillow or sent a flirtatious text * Make out and be playful Lori and I also talk about when it’s time to get help for your relationship whether it is a counselor or a coach.

 RE028: Selling Deer Antler Velvet in Retirement - Rock Your Retirement Show | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 33:38

Henry interviews Di and Ross Lawrence who run a business selling deer antler velvet in their retirement. Before Di and Ross retired, they ran a deer farm. Di worked part-time as a bookkeeper and Ross ran the farm. As they got older, they knew they would have to leave their farm as it became too much work for them to maintain. Ross even got pretty seriously injured. In 2014, they decided it was time to sell. Henry talks with them about the transition from farm life to life in the suburbs. It was an easy transition for them. They bought their home before they sold their farm.  Ross and Di downsized their belongings.  They were prepared for it. It was, however, difficult for Ross to leaving the animals he had taken care of for so long. Ross knew he wanted to stay in touch with the deer industry after he retired. He already had a small online business selling deer antler velvet products and he decided he would continue that business in his retirement.  What is Deer Antler Velvet? Deer antler velvet is the entire immature antler. It is harvested before it calcified to its normal state. Once they remove the antlers they do grow back each year. It has been used for thousands of years as a food product. It is also used in Chinese medicine to promote good health and is used as a natural remedy for a wide variety of things. Henry talks with Di and Ross about their business and the various uses for their product. Di and Ross haven’t only been “working” in their retirement. Di has been enjoying getting her new home together. She has been able to catch up on sewing, reading, and she has been able to start doing more walking. Ross has plans to start golfing and they have been doing some traveling. All of those things we don’t usually have time to do before we retire. If you would like to contact the Lawrence’s, you can email them at ross@deerfarm.com.au.

 Dealing with Pet Loss: Episode 84 - Rock Your Retirement Show | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

If you are like me, your animals are a big part of your family. In this episode, I talk with Von Braschler about dealing with pet loss and grief.  Von is the author of the book Natural Pet Healing and the e-book Healing with Your Pet: Our Psychic Spiritual Connection, which is based in part on his 4-year popular podcast which was called “Healing with your Pet.” He rescues cats and has volunteered as a dog walker and groomer for the Humane Society. He is also a certified pet massage therapist.  There are steps that you really need to go through in dealing with pet loss The most popular names in the US for pets are no longer Fluffy or Spot. Instead, they are names such as Max, Sam, Ginger, Misty, Jake, and Samantha. These are like children’s names and they become our family. According to Von, the bond we have with our pets these days is stronger than ever before. Pets are not spending as much time outside, they live in the house with us, therefore, our bond with them gets stronger. Most of us will go through many… many pets and will sadly lose them and go through grief. Unless someone has lived with an animal or had a pet that is close to them, they do not feel the bond and they can’t truly empathize with the grief you go through. What are the steps for dealing with pet loss? * Take lots of photos and make a book out of them * Keep collars, tags (keepsakes) * Celebrate their life * Surround yourself with sympathetic people * Allow yourself to grieve * If you have another pet, you can comfort each other and grieve together * Have a small ceremony * Join a pet loss support group either online or in person * Have age appropriate animal (someone who is elderly may not want to get a parrot who will live a very long time) Books:  Natural Pet Healing: Our Psychic, Spiritual Connection Healing with your Pet: Our Psychic, Spiritual Connection (Kindle Edition) Contact Information: If you would like to reach out to Von you can go to facebook.com/vbraschler  Websites we mentioned in our interview:  AARP * The Humane Society Special Thanks to: * Angie Strehlow who helps us get great guests that help us with our retirement lifestyle while keeping everything on track…and helps with these show notes! * Les Briney, my husband, and Danny Ozment of Emerald City Pro who edits the show and makes my guests and me sound terrific * Henry Shapiro, host of Retired Excited that airs on Fridays * YOU for telling your friends about the show, leaving comments below, and sharing episodes you really like on Facebook, and reviewing the show on iTunes This post about retirement and Retirement Lifestyle first appeared on http://RockYourRetirement.com

 RE027: Breeding Dogs in Retirement - Rock Your Retirement Show | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Judith French is breeding dogs in her retirement. In this episode, Henry speaks with Judith French.  Judy was in nursing before she retired.  She has also been married for 54 years!  She was looking forward to her retirement so she would have more time to do things such as gardening and reading. Judith truly loves breeding dogs.  She spends a lot of her free time doing this and she loves her dogs.  Judith began breeding animals even before she retired. In fact. she grew up in a family which bred and showed animals, so she is no stranger to the show arena. Judith initially started with cats, but then switched to breeding dogs.  She and Henry discuss the many breeds she has raised and loved throughout the years. Mentioned in the show:   https://www.dogzonline.com.au/breeds/member.asp?name=WATERMILL *Please note: We realize that dog breeding is a sensitive subject for some of our listeners and readers.  The Rock Your Retirement show does not endorse… nor does it condemn breeding dogs.   Kathe currently enjoys two rescue dogs and a bird.  She believes that pets can keep you healthy and help you live longer.   Each person must decide on his or her own whether to get a pedigreed dog, show dog, or a rescue dog.

 Sexual Medicine: Episode 083 - Rock Your Retirement Show | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

In this episode, I talk with Sue Goldstein, BA, CCRC, AASECT-CSE, IF. (That is a ton of credentials isn’t that?!) In 2007, Sue and her husband moved from Boston to San Diego to open up San Diego Sexual Medicine. She educates people on sex, sexual dysfunction, sexual functionality, basically everything that has to do with sexual medicine. She also recently co-authored a book called “When Sex Isn’t Good”. You’re never too old for sex According to Sue, you are never too old for sex and it’s never too late to regain sexual health. Research tells us that being sexually active actually decreases your stress level. There are a lot of benefits! * It is good for your health and your relationship. * It improves self-esteem * There is more fun in relationships and * There is more of a playful ease in relationships. The oldest man they treated for erectile dysfunction was 91. So, as the saying goes “where there’s a will there’s a way!” “The man with the young woman on his arm is not looking for a trophy wife, he’s looking for a lubricated vagina” We went over so many enlightening and fascinating things. Here is a short list of some of them: * Menopause (Sex doesn’t have to hurt!) * HSDD (Hypoactive sexual desire disorder) * Erectile dysfunction * Injection therapy (Can’t be as bad as it sounds can it?) * Prostate cancer and treatments to help with getting an erection * Implants for men * Hormone treatments * Laser therapy * Testosterone * The “G” Spot I learned so much from conducting this interview on sexual medicine.

David Mickle has had a passion for steam trains for 50 years. Before David he retired at the young age of 70, he worked as an electrician. He looked forward to retiring so he would have more time to pursue his passion for steam trains. When David was a young child he was fascinated with steam trains. His passion for steam trains only grew as he got older. Henry and David discuss his volunteer work on the on the Puffing Billy which is a voluntary Railway group that operates a steam train in Australia. David was a volunteer laborer and helped to restore the cars and railways after a landslide. They also discuss David’s involvement with the Melbourne Steam Traction Engine Club. David was one of the very first members of this club and was also involved in the club for over 50 years. Dave also restored a steam engine with the help of his friend. It was manufactured by the Yorkshire Steam Wagon Company and has a horizontal boiler on the front with Ackermann steering. There is nothing automatic about this steam wagon either. You have to stop to change gears. Henry and Dave talk about the restoration process and it really is amazing. In listening to Henry’s interview David, you can really tell how important this hobby is to David. He is a man with some fascinating stories who is more than happy to share them. There is some amazing history and heritage behind steam trains. Do you have a passion for steam trains? You don’t have to actually own a steam train if you are interested in them.

 Talking Poop with Melissa Ramos: Ep 082 - Rock Your Retirement Show | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

In this episode, I am talking poop with Melissa Ramos! Melissa is a Nutritionist focusing on Chinese Nutrition Therapy and owner of Sexy Food Therapy Inc. She helps people feel sexy from the inside out with a focus on digestion and hormone imbalances. Melissa’s journey began when she got sick. She started to see a nutritionist and discovered she had digestive issues. Melissa went and studied nutrition and from there, she studied Chinese Medicine right afterward. She began a blog basically just for fun. In the beginning, she was blogging about how she emotionally ate the right way and was documenting a lot of dating stories. To her surprise, a bunch of people started reading it and the business focus changed. A lot of it changed based on her personal struggle with digestion and a near death experience that she discusses in the interview. The Poop Whisperer People get nervous about talking openly about poop. They will go to an entirely different floor of an office building to poop just so that no one knows they are going. Talking poop is important as it can tell a lot about your health. As you get older your digestion declines. 70% of women will get fibroids by the age of 50. So what do YOU need to know about your poop? What should you be looking for? (And according to Melissa, yes, you should be looking) * Frequency * Shape * Pellet poop * Loose Poop * Color * How many wipes * Proper bowel elimination Don’t poop enough? Melissa gives us some great tips in the interview on what we can do to increase the frequency and improve our bowel movements. Happy Pooping!

 RE025: Money isn’t everything - Rock Your Retirement Show | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

In this episode, Henry interviews me and we talk about how money isn’t everything. I actually was hesitant to release this episode since it seems a little self-serving, but my “deal” with Henry was to release his episodes one at a time so that they would live on in the Rock Your Retirement feed. So here goes…. We started off the interview talking about my treadmill desk. You may have heard me talk about my treadmill desk on other episodes. I love my treadmill desk! If you haven’t seen it, join my private Facebook group so you can see a picture of it. It’s a great tool in staying healthy. Henry and I also discussed my previous career as a Financial Advisor and how and why I walked away from most of my business. We also talked about why I began selling Medicare Supplement Insurance. However, the main focus of the interview, and why Henry invited me on his show was to talk about the Rock Your Retirement show and how money isn’t everything. This is a subject that is near and dear to my heart. I started this show with a set of certain topics I would be discussing with people. Those were: * Social and Family * Adventure and Travel * Volunteer and Philanthropy * Spiritual/Soul * Sex * Helping your parents/sandwich generation issues Over time, that list of topics has grown and I have learned a lot! We also talked about all of the mechanics of starting and maintaining a podcast such as * Technical * Equipment * hosting * questions for guests * editing I had no experience in podcasting when I began, and it has been a wonderful learning experience. I am also so grateful for my “tech guru”, my husband, Les. Henry and I also talked about a retirement community Les and I were considering in Buckeye, AZ but we decided the extremely hot temps were not for us! So it’s still sunny (and cooler) San Diego for us right now. Sites we mentioned in this interview: * Dave Jackson’s, School of Podcasting * Libsyn I had a great time talking with Henry Shapiro and I hope you enjoy listening! Special Thanks to: * Angie Strehlow who helps us get great guests that help us with our retirement lifestyle while keeping everything on track…and helps with these show notes! * Les Briney, my husband, who edits the show and makes my guests and me sound terrific * Henry Shapiro, host of Retired Excited that airs on Fridays * YOU for telling your friends about the show, leaving comments below, and sharing episodes you really like on Facebook, and reviewing the show on iTunes This post about retirement and Retirement Lifestyle first appeared on http://RockYourRetirement.com
