This is the time of year when we think about giving and generosity. This episode is the second in a three-part series on the topic. Sam and David Kern, president of Wealthquest, discuss strategic giving to individuals in this episode. They will then explore ways to give offering tax benefits in the third part of the series, airing next week. We discuss the emotional and psychological benefits of being generous and the two key ingredients of generosity: action and attitude. We also talk about identifying 'circuit breakers' that prevent us from being generous. Additionally, we explore how creating an 'abundance fund' can foster a generous mindset. David encapsulates this idea by saying he's never seen an unhappy generous person, underscoring the importance of giving. Next week, we'll focus more technically on the quantitative side of generosity. We're going to discuss strategies and tools that you can use to be more generous, increase efficiency, and achieve better tax benefits. Episode Highlights: [05:59] Giving and generosity towards individuals is usually non-tax deductible. Generosity for entities that we do get tax benefits from. [06:58] The lifetime gift and estate tax exemption is 13 million dollars. The yearly threshold is $17,000. This is the annual gift tax exclusion. [08:28] A form 709 or gift tax return is required for any amount over that $17,000. The numbers change every year, so they need to be double-checked. [10:27] Cash gifts with those strings attached or wonderful. Even if the money is used in frivolous ways people are learning. [10:42] You can open a Roth IRA for a child or grandchild if they have income and gift a contribution on their behalf. This can jump start their retirement and get them investing. [11:43] 529 or educational savings accounts are also very popular. All of the growth of these accounts can be used tax-free as long as it goes towards educational expenses. [12:53] You can also pay medical or tuition expenses on behalf of someone else. When you pay directly to the institution it doesn't count towards the lifetime gift exemption. [13:35] You can also give appreciated shares of stock. You're transferring shares and transferring the tax burden. [15:24] Paying directly to an institution for medical or tuition is not tax deductible. Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. (CFP Board) owns the CFP® certification mark, the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification mark, and the CFP® certification mark (with plaque design) logo in the United States, which it authorizes use of by individuals who successfully complete CFP Board's initial and ongoing certification requirements.

We'll also discuss the critical role of maintaining standards, especially in Christian ministry, business, and marriage. We witness Nehemiah ensuring that the Levites are restored to their positions and the offerings are adequately distributed.

The #1 thing you need to do on stage at a bodybuilding show is present yourself to a judging panel for consideration on how well you meet the judging criteria for the category and organization. You aren't doing a workout for the judges. You aren't food prepping for the judges. You are 100% performing on stage. Making this connection from the beginning and preparing for the expectations of the show day itself will ensure that you avoid scoring lower than you should and instead you receive your highest possible placement at your show. Tune in as I elaborate more on what it takes to prepare your posing and stage performance for show day in part 3 of my new 10 part series, "10 Tips For Your First Prep."

Today is part 3 of my new series called 10 Tips for your first prep and it's all about the #1 thing you need to do on stage on show day…and that is to pose and perform in front of a judging panel for consideration on how well you meet the judging criteria for the category and organization. Most people focus on the training and nutrition component to get their physique ready. And then underestimate the importance of presentation on show day. When people first learn about bodybuilding and are encouraged to give it a try, it's likely because they have a great physique or had a really great body transformation. It's not because they randomly hit a front double bicep and someone said, man that front double was awesome man, you should give bodybuilding a try. Or you were standing in line at Starbucks holding a bikini back pose with your feet apart, glutes high, and ordering a triple grande mocha loca frappacino latte and someone tapped you on the shoulder and said, man you have amazing mobility in your lower back, you should give bikini competitions a try. When you were introduced to bodybuilding it had nothing to do with posing and everything to do with your physique. In addition, if you are going to hire someone to help you prepare for a show, you are likely going to hire a nutrition and training coach first. Posing is the afterthought. Your training and nutrition coach might offer some posing assistance too as an add on as well. Like the last minute impulse purchase you made but didn't know you needed after waiting for 15 minutes in the check out aisle at the TJ MAXX store. For me just the other day I grabbed socks that I didn't know I needed. The time before it was chocolate with hazelnut pieces from Belgium that I never heard of but were freaking amazing and didn't last long in my house. I put the candy in a bowl on a table and every time I walked by the bowl there was a huge dent in the amount of candy in it. Apparently my husband liked them too. Who would've known. TJ Max check out aisles are full of things you didn't know you needed. So when you start in bodybuilding you are aware it's a physique driven sport but when you look into things a little further you realize that there is a presentation component to bodybuilding too. So you start looking up posing tutorials, you start following people that are actively competing, and you might even attend a show too. Then it occurs too you that there is a lot more that goes into preparing for a show than just training and nutrition. This epiphany occurs at different points for everyone. I've had people attend my virtual posing clinics who are a week or two from their first show and think one clinic is going to be enough to prepare their posing and stage presence. And then they learn that looking at a tutorial or a photo is a lot different than recreating the poses themselves. Being able to move and shape our bodies in the unusual shapes required in bodybuilding poses requires a lot of mind body connection. Sometimes there are areas of our body that we don't have a connection to, like for example, the lats. There are divisions that require you to have your lats engaged in a certain position in your poses. This engagement is absolutely critical. But sometimes people aren't able to make this connection with their body and can't recreate the pose. I always say there are two reasons people aren't engaging their lats in their poses. One is a simple fix and requires a specific execution style that they so far learned backwards. And the second requires a literal mind body connection change. In my 12 years of teaching men and women how to pose, the #1 most common reason people started coming to me was for this one thing, to engage the lats. I had some students back in the day nickname me the lat whisperer. I have it down to a science now and if you don't have lat engagement it takes about 2-3 weeks to get it. And then after that it's all about improving the engagement. If you are showing up to a posing clinic a week or two before your first show and you are one of those people that needs to build a mind body connection to lat engagement, you are not going to be prepared on show day. Plain and simple. But now you know better for the next show. Things like this happen because no one emphasized to you the importance of learning how to pose. Posing was an add on to the service you were given so it is perceived as being of less importance. You wouldn't find this in any other professional sport. Football or baseball there are different coaches for different aspects of the game. The needs of a linebacker are different than the needs of a quarterback. The needs of a pitcher are different than the needs of a catcher. There are different coaches that specialize in these different positions of the game because the level of competition is that much fiercer in these sports. Every little detail and skill can make or break you even being considered to be on a team. In bodybuilding, the stakes aren't as high as they are in other sports. In bodybuilding when you win a pro card the only thing most people earn are the opportunity to spend more money to compete. Even as a pro you pay entry fees to compete. In other professional sports you get paid to play. In bodybuilding you might get some free supplements or become an affiliate for a company you purchase products from versus in other professional sports you can earn major endorsement deal opportunities. You have to be that top 1% in the bodybuilding industry with a million followers to get any paid endorsement deals. And you don't even have to compete to get these endorsements if you have the following and industry reach. When the stakes aren't as high, the standards aren't as high. In bodybuilding posing, which is the #1 most important thing you have to do on show day, it is still an add-on service for many coaches. Which means you will learn the basics, but you won't learn how to be great. You will learn average skills. My students learn skills from basic to advanced and there is an order in which they learn these skills. Let's take four example goals that students have come to me with and I'll break down the timeline on how to achieve these goals. In fact, I'll take four of the most common reasons people have stated they are attending my virtual posing clinics. I ask every person that attends my clinics why they are there and here are four of the common answers and an estimated amount of time it will take to learn the proper skills to achieve the goal. First one: I don't want to look like an idiot on stage Well, you are at my clinic so you are already not going to look like an idiot. So BOOM done. Second one: I don't know how to make the poses look flattering on me. No matter if you are a bikini competitor, classic physique, figure, wellness, women's physique, men's physique, or bodybuilder, you will learn the poses for your category and proper execution that day of my clinic. That is step one. Making them look flattering requires more practice and refinement and that happens at my weekly classes just by coming to them and practicing with the rest of the students on a consistent basis. You can do a lot in 4 weeks, but a good 8 weeks of practice will help you feel much more comfortable in your poses. And then to become really good, you need consistent practice year round, like what we do in my weekly virtual posing classes, where you build upon what you already know and learn more advanced skills. Third reason people say they come to my clinics: I don't know how to transition from pose to pose and make it look flowy and natural. The first thing you need to do is learn the proper execution of the poses first and stop focusing on all the fancy stuff right away. When building a house, you pour the foundation first, don't you? Learning the basics on poses is building your foundation first. Learning improper execution of poses in the beginning is like building a foundation that cracks right away. Take the time to learn the poses with proper execution. Only when you are confident and consistently doing the poses correctly, only then start to focus on the transitions. You can learn the footwork pretty quickly so don't stress about it. Most of my students laugh and joke with me when I show them how simple the footwork really is with my signature style of teaching footwork. Transitions are less complicated than you think. Plus, making the poses look flowy and natural also comes with more consistent practice. Give yourself 8 weeks minimum of structured practice to get confident at posing and moving in and out of the poses. Get through your first show. And then keep going so you can learn some more advanced skills for your next show. You will be good your first year of competing, but you will be unrecognizable on stage in your second year of competing from learning and practicing more things. And finally, the last reason people say they come to my clinic is: I want to win and earn my pro card. If you really want to earn your pro card and actually be competitive as a pro then your journey to the stage is going to be different than the average person. Students who come to me to learn to pose and be a stand out on stage, need 8 weeks minimum for a posing overhaul. However, someone with only 8 weeks is going to be provided a different path of skill development than someone who comes to me 6+ months out from show and wants to be undeniable. I can do a complete posing overhaul in 8 weeks, but with more time, you're gonna learn more skills, and skills build upon skills, and it is only with time do skills become engraved in you to become exceptional. One of my students has been in my virtual Classes for 10 months. She competed in the bodybuilding division a couple weeks ago on a world stage and her individual posing routine was so captivating, she had people coming up to her after the show at the hotel wanting to take pictures with her. There were hundreds of people that competed at that show but SHE was the stand out. That didn't happen from 8 weeks, that happened from 10 months. So in summary, you can never start too early when it comes to learning how to pose. Most people underestimate how long it really takes to become good at posing. Many of my students tell me that they wished the started sooner. If your show is in the spring starting to learn how to pose NOW is an emergency. If your show is summer or fall next year, starting now will ensure that you build a proper posing foundation and have enough time to build some of your own unique style and personality on stage. If you are a pro, you should never stop practicing and learning new things. When you stop practicing posing, just like when you take time off from exercise, you will get rusty and out of shape, so plan accordingly. Alright guys, I hope this episode sets your expectations up a little better on when and how to learn how to pose before a show. If you are an ocb or npc competitor I have virtual posing clinics coming up that you should attend. The ocb one is an official one and they run monthly. The next one is this Saturday. Go to learntopose.com/ocb for info and register. The next virtual NPC clinic also runs monthly and the next one is the following Saturday.

Full show notes at www.LearningLeader.com Twitter/IG: @RyanHawk12 https://twitter.com/RyanHawk12 The power of believing in someone. Mr. Duncan, Shane's high school English teacher was the first person to tell him that he believed in him. He changed the trajectory of Shane's life. We, as leaders, can do that for others. Let's proactively look for opportunities to tell the people we're leading that we believe in them. The difference between Nice and Kind feedback. Too often, the people we ask for feedback are nice but not kind. Kind people will tell you things a nice person will not. A kind person will tell you that you have spinach on your teeth. A nice person won't because it's uncomfortable. A kind person will tell us what holds us back, even when it's uncomfortable. A nice person avoids giving us critical feedback because they're worried about hurting our feelings. Champions: “Champions don't create the standards of excellence. The standards of excellence create champions.” “Expecting high performance is a prerequisite to its achievement among those who work with you. Your high standards and optimistic anticipations will not guarantee a favorable outcome, but their absence will assuredly create the opposite.” The USS Benfold — was one of the worst-performing warships in the US Navy in 1996. The destiny of the USS Benfold changed the day Michael Abrashoff was named commander. Shane was 13 years old. Shane was standing with a group of his friends after school and they were teasing one of his classmates and he was watching. Teachers intervened and it ended quickly. He didn't realize that your dad was parked nearby and was watching. You have to stand up for people who don't have a voice. Warren Buffett: “The big question about how people behave is whether they've got an Inner Scorecard or an Outer Scorecard. It helps if you can be satisfied with an Inner Scorecard.” Brent Beshore: “My favorite part of the book was the section on habits, rules, and safeguards (page 101). A principle that Shane and I discussed in January changed my life and was expounded on in the book. Shane said, “It's impossible to work out very often if you have to decide every day whether or not you'll do it. That's why I just do something active every day, no matter what.” Solutions/Ego: “Solutions appear when you stop bargaining and start accepting the reality of the situation. That's because focusing on the next move, rather than how you got here in the first place, opens you up to a lot of possibilities. When you put outcome over ego, you get better results.” “Small plans don't inspire, but consistently small actions create incredible results.” Knowing Your Defaults: The emotion default - We tend to respond to feelings rather than reasons and facts The ego default - We tend to react to anything that threatens our sense of self-worth or our position in a group hierarchy The social default - We tend to conform to the norms of our larger social group. The Inertia default - We're habit-forming and comfort-seeking. We tend to resist change, and to prefer ideas, processes, and environments that are familiar. Ancient Greek word — Phronesis— the wisdom of knowing how to order your life to achieve the best results. Life/Career advice: "I'd give the same advice to someone who's trying to find someone to marry. Go on lots of dates. Experiment. Do stuff. Get out in the world. You can only connect the dots looking backward." If you want to develop good judgment, start by asking two questions: What do I want in life? And is what I want actually worth wanting?
In this episode we cover the turmoil at OpenAI, AI vetting PR pitches, and the newly-released Guidelines, Tips, and Best Practices for using AI from PRSA. Let us know what you think at soloprpro.com. Transcript Karen Swim (00:04): Thank you for joining us for this episode of That Solo Life, the podcast for PR pros and marketers who work for themselves, people like me, Michelle Kane, with VoiceMatters and my wonderful co-host, Karen Swim of Solo PR Pro. Hi, Karen, how are you? Karen Swim, APR (00:20): Hello, Michelle. I'm doing great. How are you doing? Michelle Kane (00:24): Doing well, doing well. We're coming on this episode after Thanksgiving, so we hope all of you had a really terrific holiday with your family and friends and got to relax a little bit and are easing your way into the return to the workplace. Karen Swim, APR Except this year, was it really Thanksgiving or was it just pre-Christmas? Because in my neighborhood, people skipped right to Christmas before Halloween was even over. So I am surrounded by lit up subdivisions and Christmas lights. Not that they set it all up because the weather was nice, which would be smart, but they actually just pulled the trigger some people in as well. The weather was good. They just go ahead and set up all the outside stuff and then turn it on for Thanksgiving. No, no, no, not this year. We have full on Christmas here in Michigan, and that was before Thanksgiving, long before Thanksgiving. So I'm thinking Thanksgiving is, it's really losing its way. Michelle Kane (01:35): Yeah, it is. I mean, thankfully we have parades in football to keep us in check, but it is strange because I consider myself a pretty flexible Gen Xer, but there are certain societal cues that I need and some that I miss. So you have to have, the stuffing has to digest before I pull out the red and the green and the yellow and the blue and all that stuff. Back in the day, the Jerry Lewis telethon final tote had to happen before I would set foot back in my school. None of that happens anymore. It's Karen Swim, APR (02:09): Anything happens anymore, and I'm feeling like Thanksgiving is, it's going to go the way of Pluto. It's going to get demoted, Michelle Kane (02:17): Although Karen Swim, APR (02:17): It's going to come to be known not as Thanksgiving, but as carb loading for Black Friday. I don't know. Michelle Kane (02:24): Yeah, yeah. Well, yeah, I think everything's faster. I mean, we've seen the online sales early Black Friday, but in a way that's good. I am seeing, I can't give you the list, but it's nice to see that some big box stores are having sanity, sanity has prevailed. They're either not opening on Thanksgiving or they're having relatively, I don't want to say decent, but their hours aren't too wild. But yeah, it's weird days. Weird days. Maybe it speaks to our general anxiety as a society. Let's just get it done. Karen Swim, APR (03:01): This could be, was the thought sparked by the great toilet paper raid of 2020? I don't know. Is that where it all started to turn? Michelle Kane (03:10): Hey, I don't know. I don't know but that would speak to my inner Girl Scout. Be prepared. Karen Swim, APR (03:16): This is true. So why not have Black Friday four weeks ahead of schedule so that the planners and the preppers could make sure that they got everything that they need on sale. Michelle Kane (03:28): That's right. Karen Swim, APR (03:29): Someone else, before it's all gone. Michelle Kane (03:31): I will say if you are still eating your tuna fish from 1999, please don't. Well, in the name of prepping, I don't know if this segue is terrible, but there's been some activity. I know this is shocking in the world of AI, artificial intelligence, especially as it touches upon our profession, by the time this hits your podcast queue, not sure where the situation with OpenAI is going to be because it seems to be every day there's something new happening. But recently, the board ousted the chair, and now some of the board, the employees are signing petitions to bring him back. And as someone pointed out on the news today, such an influential change-making organization in the hands of the number of people you can count on two hands, not a great thing. Karen Swim, APR (04:40): Well, it's interesting from so many perspectives, it is huge in the world of AI because when there's that type of a shakeup, so Sam Altman, the CEO was ousted, as you said by the board, but then some other key members, I guess left and then they appointed an interim, and then Microsoft hired Sam, but then there was a push to bring Sam back, and Sam I think was part of that push. And the whole thing is just weird. For users of OpenAI. It does make you take a step back because first of all, when the CEO is ousted by the board, sometimes those are due to concerns that don't speak to the product or the quality, but it does make you pause and wonder if you can trust the product. When there's this level of turmoil at that level, it really does make you think about that. Is this really something that I should continue to use? Can I have faith in it? And AI is so, it's growing so fast and things are changing so quickly, and so it brings a level of hesitancy that I don't think that the company really needed, and who that heck knows where it's all going from here. It's been a day-to-day drama. Michelle Kane (06:03): Yeah, it really has. Well, for me, it seemed to come out of nowhere because I'm not exactly paying attention to that company 24/7, but I thought, wait, what? What? Yeah, and what will that mean for the future of AI? But we have also learned that PRSA has a little something to say about the future of AI, at least in our practice. They have released a document on the ethics of using AI in your writing within our industry of public relations, which is a nice thing to have. Karen Swim, APR (06:39): That is a great thing to have. By the way, again, this could change again, but OpenAI named three interim CEOs in three days. So I'm feeling like if you have solely been relying on ChatGPT, you might want to just add some other tools to the mix because this is not giving stability vibes. Michelle Kane (07:05): No, no, it is not. But yeah, if you have been wondering or concerned about the ethical use of AI in your everyday practice or as a whole, we will put the link in our show notes. But please do head over to PRSA.org. It is a 10-page document and just lays out potential risks, ethical challenges. Like I said, we're going to put it in our show notes, but it really does lay out the ethical risks and best practices, which is what we all need, because let's face it, this tool is here to stay in so many ways. And as we've said many times on this podcast, it's best to get to know it, get good at it in an ethical manner, because it's really going to help you to not only stand out, but to be competitive as we move forward. Karen Swim, APR (08:15): And shout out to Michelle Egan, who is the 2023 PRSA chair, and Mark Dewar, who is the best man ever, I adore Mark and have had the pleasure of serving with Mark. They headed up this effort, and I know that the people behind this are so thoughtful, and it's cool that it doesn't look like you have to log into PRSA. So even if you are not a PRSA member, you should be able to grab this resource, which I think is a thing we do need to pay attention to. And a nice resource, thank you so much PRSA for providing that, for leaving the way as well as to other organizations who have really taken this seriously and outlined some guidelines for communication professionals. Michelle Kane (09:12): Yeah, absolutely. Absolutely. And then there's the other blip on the radar of AI, which is pretty significant. I know, Karen, you had discovered there's some developments regarding AI in pitching stories. Karen Swim, APR (09:30): Yeah, apparently. So, AI, not human beings, may be reading your pitches, which is a little demoralizing considering how hard we all work to craft those personalized targeted pitches. And so media relations is really becoming very different these days. You even have resources that used to be great for aligning sources and reporters that are now not even being vetted and verified, and I'll go ahead and call them out. It's HARO specifically. Michelle Kane (10:15): So that's a thing. Karen Swim, APR (10:15): It really has kind of become, I've not really paid attention to HARO's in quite some time because they don't verify the sources. And you do see a lot of content shops and SEO specialists - nothing wrong with SEO specialists. However, when you are working on behalf of clients, you're looking for something different. You're using HARO as a source to really support your thought leadership efforts. And so some of these publications are not always that, and so you're looking for more editorial. And so that's really, it's just an interesting and somewhat concerning use of AI when you don't have humanity involved in these decisions. But at the same time, I'm seeing a lot of journalists move over to the content side because let's face it, journalists are not really being paid the amount of money that they should for their talent. And I still, I don't know about you, but I still get so excited when I read a piece by a journalist in a publication that really allows them to exercise their craft. And the writing is so sharp, and sometimes the things are so beautifully written and so deeply investigated and researched that it just still makes me excited. I am also sad that there's not more of that, that is no longer the norm, but it is really exciting when you have journalists at a publication who really get to do what they do best, which is right. Investigate, really present all sides of an issue. I love that. I love it. Whether it's about a societal problem or politics, I just really still enjoy good old fashioned, great writing, and I don't want to see that disappear. Michelle Kane (12:02): Right? And it's our loss as a society that is not valued. And I don't know, there's so many moving parts these days and people's lives, we just whizz along. And I don't think people, it's not to say they're ignoring it or that they're making a wrong decision, but guys, well, I know preaching to the choir, but people in general have got to value our journalists and demand it. Demand it. So that's why we say things like, subscribe to your paper. You may not appreciate it, but then when you realize you don't know what's going on in your community, oh, who used to do that? Oh, that boring old paper that I used to slag off on. Karen Swim, APR (12:51): So very true. And journalists are continuing to be under attack, which in 2023, moreso for being truthful, but we need them. We need unbiased professional reporting. But you know what? We also need journalists outside of that realm of really holding us accountable of telling our stories and writing history. They're so good at that. Even I read a journalist tribute to Matthew Perry following his death, and it stuck with me. And I thought, wow, we need people who have this gift, who have this talent, who love this job that they do, who to speak these words in a way that not everyone can speak them. And I don't want to lose that. I'm sorry. And thank God for the Hollywood writers fighting for their right to exist with ai. They're not eliminating ai, but they also were able to bring out their role and fight for their rights and get what they wanted. We can coexist with ai, but I don't want AI to take over. Michelle Kane (14:13): Agree, agree. We need to maintain the humanity of it, because if that's lost, what's really, what's the point of our existence? Was it Winston Churchill? Back in World War II. He said, if we don't keep the arts and things alive, then what are we fighting for? So definitely, and we'll put sports writers in there. I've got to tell you, sometimes a beautifully written article, like if it's a championship or something, sports writers can make me cry. There is a special romance to sports writing that is often underappreciated. Karen Swim, APR (15:00): Completely agree. Completely agree with you. We are not talking about sports broadcasters though, however, who may up their sideline commentary. Can we not talk about that? Michelle Kane (15:11): Yes. No, we are not talking about that. No. No, we are not. Karen Swim, APR (15:17): We don't talk about Bruno, and we're not talking about sports broadcasters today, but maybe on another day we will address that Michelle Kane (15:24): Issue. Agree? Yes. Yes. Keep it real people. You know what? We're going to find out Karen Swim, APR (15:32): 100%. Michelle Kane (15:34): We always, oh my goodness. Well, we wanted to let this digest along with your holiday meals, so we kept it short and sweet today, and we hope you got some value out of this. And if you did, please share it. I was going to see if you did not, what if you did, please do share it around and hit us up at soloprpro.com. Let us know what you want us to talk about. What can we dig into and talk about in a future podcast? But until next time, thanks for listening to That Solo Life.

Topical treatment options for AD have limitations related to efficacy, tolerability, and safety concerns but the availability of biologic agents for both pediatric and adult patients with AD has revitalized the treatment landscape for this chronic disease. However, challenges remain with the identification and assessment of severity of AD, particularly with regard to age- and race-related differences in AD features, and with utilizing targeted therapy appropriately, especially in pediatric patients. This activity will provide learners with expert guidance regarding the identification and assessment of AD severity in children and practical strategies regarding the integration of targeted biologic therapy for pediatric patients with moderate to severe AD.ChairAmy S.

Sam dives into a Wall Street Journal article that discusses the findings of a study conducted by the Mercer CFA Institute on global retirement systems. The study assigns the US a grade of C+, indicating that Social Security and 401(k) plans leave Americans less secure than retirees in other parts of the world. The study ranked 47 countries, with the US finishing in the middle at 22nd place. It considered factors such as benefits, government debt, demographics, and home ownership. Sam elaborates on how our retirement systems stack up against those of other nations and offers insights on major pitfalls to avoid as one approaches retirement. Episode Highlights: [02:10] This episode is inspired by a Wall Street Journal article called The U.S. Gets a C+ in Retirement based on a study that ranked 47 countries on retirement. [04:16] They looked at the public sector and the private sector or Social Security and company sponsored retirement plans. [04:32] Two to three decades ago the private sector mostly had pension plans or defined benefit plans. All of the responsibility for providing retirement fell on the employer and their plan. [05:54] We've now seen a big shift into 401(k) plans or defined contribution plans. Employers often match. The burden has now shifted on to the individual. [06:48] The public sector is largely Social Security. [07:37] The US has shifted from defined benefit plans to defined contribution plans, whereas other countries haven't made that shift. [08:25] In the US, the main way we're going to have retirement is from what we save. Social Security is a supplement. Some people may also have a pension plan. [09:06] In other countries, a government pension is the main source of retirement. [09:26] Pros of the US system include many great savings options and autonomy. The cons include the benefit of retirement falling upon us. [11:22] When the responsibility falls on us we have more fear and more worry which can create panic and bad decisions. [11:53] The antidote to fear and worry is having a financial plan that will give you some certainty. Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. (CFP Board) owns the CFP® certification mark, the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification mark, and the CFP® certification mark (with plaque design) logo in the United States, which it authorizes use of by individuals who successfully complete CFP Board's initial and ongoing certification requirements.

Most of Illinois' 16 juvenile detention centers fail to meet minimum compliance standards, according to recent reports from the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice.

Injustice Watch's Kelly Garcia looked over the reports and tells host Jacoby Cochran what's driving the problems, why transparency issues persist, and how officials are responding.

Today on the Matt Walsh Show, standards are being lowered in nearly every industry in the name of "diversity." Now this disease has spread to social work, where one major US city is thinking about throwing out the social worker exam entirely in order to make the field less white. Also, a fist fight almost breaks out during a senate hearing. We'll play the video for you. And another Hollywood actor pretends to be happy after his child comes out as "trans."
