Merrit Strunk, President of Momentum Financial and Insurance Services LLC, Interviewed on Podcast Discussing Challenges in Planning a Successful Retirement

Published on September 16, 2022

Merrit Strunk discusses topics including:

  • Certain investment vehicles that used to be thought of as having good long-term returns may have changed.
  • Medicare does not cover Long Term Care costs
  • Having One Big Dollar figure for retirement is a misconception – we also recommend having a goal to generate tax-free income
  • The “Set it and forget it” asset allocation in a retirement portfolio is potentially a mistake.

Listen to the interview on the Business Innovators Radio Network: https://businessinnovatorsradio.com/interview-with-merrit-strunk-founder-of-momentum-financial-insurance-services-discussing-challenges-in-planning-a-successful-retirement/

According to a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services study, 70% of people over 65 will need Long Term Care at some point in their lives. https://aspe.hhs.gov/reports/what-lifetime-risk-needing-receiving-long-term-services-supports-0

As people age, they often require more medical care and assistance with activities of daily living. Long-term care is a type of care that helps people with these needs. Unfortunately, Medicare does not cover the costs of long-term care.

A few options are available to help pay for long-term care costs. One option is to purchase a long-term care insurance policy. This can be expensive, but it may cover some or all of the costs associated with long-term care. Another option is to use Medicaid. Medicaid will pay for some long-term care costs, but coverage varies by state.

Merrit says: ” Long-term care can be expensive, but there are ways to help offset the costs. There are various options available, but each has its own set of rules and limitations. It is essential to understand the costs and how they will be covered. Additionally, the set it and forget it mentality with investing for retirement can be a mistake! To help ensure your successful retirement, you must verify your financial portfolio allocations and risk thresholds periodically and consistently before and after retirement.”

Merrit is the host of the Retirement (UN) Broken Podcast and Radio show as well as author of the book “Your Retirement (UN)Broken: Your Retirement May Be Broken…You Just Don’t Know It – Yet”, in which he offers inspirational advice on how to enjoy life to its fullest. This insightful book teaches four reasons why so many people retire broke and stressed and how to change the future of retirement. Buy the book on Amazon

Personal Trainer Wins Award For Helping Public Speakers Share Their Message With The World

Published on September 28, 2022

Personal trainer and business consultant Martin Sharp has won a prestigious award for helping others brush up their public speaking skills. 

The 46-year-old from York helps busy and overweight entrepreneurs, consultants and business owners improve their lifestyle so they feel happier and more confident. Alongside this, Martin is also an award-winning public speaker and trains others so they can improve their presentation skills and share their important messages with the world. 

His efforts have now been recognised by the Professional Speakers Academy (PSA), which gave him the Members Choice Award at its annual gala in London. The award is voted for by members and is given to the person they think has been the most supportive of others over the last 12 months. 

Martin said: “When my name was announced by the founder of PSA and world-renowned speaker trainer Andy Harrington, I was shocked. I didn’t expect to win. 

“I feel happy that I’ve helped so many amazing business owners and consultants improve their presentation skills along with their health and lifestyle. I’m incredibly honoured to have been voted for my members and I’m looking forward to continuing to help more amazing speakers get their positive and powerful messages of hope, help and higher achievement in the years ahead.” 

The Professional Speakers Academy (PSA) annual awards were held on Sunday, September 25 and aim to recognise the achievements of entrepreneurs and coaches who have embraced public speaking and used it to make sales and achieve business success. The ceremony, at Under The Bridge, a stylish venue at Chelsea Football Club, was attended by around 180 people and more than 50 awards were given out. 

It was the first time in three years that the awards ceremony had been held as an in-person event due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Martin began his career in IT and worked as an enterprise architect business consultant for more than 20 years helping major corporations with large scale changes. But his high-flying executive lifestyle saw him pile on the pounds and at 44, he decided to make a major life change and become a personal trainer and online health and fitness coach.

Performance Coach Wins Two Prestigious Awards For His Sales Success

Published on September 28, 2022

A peak performance coach and public speaker has won two awards for his sales success at a prestigious awards ceremony in London.

Moses Nalocca, who works with entrepreneurs, business leaders and sports stars to help them achieve their goals and become more successful, was given the accolades at the Professional Speakers Academy’s annual awards on Sunday, September 25. He received the sales person of the year award plus a special 7-figure award in recognition of his achievement of making over £1,000,000 in the training industry.

The 38-year-old said: “I’m so proud for this acknowledgment from the Professional Speakers Academy. It such an honour to be recognised by other experts.

“The 7 figure award is important, not for the money generated in the industry but for the level of impact my work may have done in people’s lives. At the end of the day, it is not about me, it’s about the people I serve.”

Moses, who originally comes from Italy and now lives in London, first came to the UK in 2016 with just 15 euros in his pocket, having to work in a minimum wage job to make ends meet. But used his excellent communication skills and positive mindset to forge a successful career for himself as a public speaker and coach.

One of his recent success stories was the Bulgarian athlete Ivet Goranova, who he coached to gold medal success in the Tokyo Olympics last summer. Moses worked with her on a daily basis in the run up to the tournament to get her thinking like a champion and she won Bulgaria’s first gold medal in 13 years.

The Professional Speakers Academy (PSA) annual awards aims to recognise the achievements of entrepreneurs and coaches who have embraced public speaking and used it to make sales and achieve business success. The ceremony, at Under The Bridge, a stylish venue at Chelsea Football Club, was attended by around 180 people and more than 50 awards were given out.
