Are you retiring soon, or planning on retiring in the future and you don't feel prepared to tackle the behemoth that is Medicare?

Arturo Perez is the current owner of his own brokerage firm, and is a top expert of Medicare knowledge in the Houston area.

Medicare is extremely complex and is not intuitive at all. There are many different penalties that can be assessed on individuals if they are not aware of certain restrictions and enrollment period dates. Having an advisor by your side such as Arturo can make it much easier to navigate these tricky waters.

Women are more likely than men to feel that they lack investment knowledge. This can discourage them from taking even basic steps in ensuring their long-term financial security. 

For this reason, many women face a real risk of being financially under-prepared for retirement. Being poor is not anyone’s idea of a good time. Sad statistic: women are 80% more likely to be in poverty at retirement compared to a man.

However, the good news is that with some guidance women are very well placed to grow their wealth and become financially empowered. In fact, studies indicate that there are actually some qualities that make women better investors. For example, women often trade less often than men because they have a longer term outlook. These qualities make women well-suited to become successful financially.

Why is it that some artists are wildly successful, while others just barely squeak by?

It may seem like an unfathomable mystery, how some are earning six figures while other, more talented artists, are struggling. Maria Brophy has dedicated 20 years of her life to researching the specific strategies that successful artists follow. After applying these strategies to her husband Drew Brophy's career, Maria grew his art sales to multiple six-figures yearly. 

In ART MONEY SUCCESS, Maria tells personal stories of her own business deals, successes and failures, while sharing non-conventional wisdom that will help artists boost their sales.

Maria used to work in the insurance industry, but has since devoted her time to selling her husband's artwork. After thousands of hours of study, research and hands-on-experience, she became an expert on art licensing, deal making, and selling art.

It's often said that the chairman of the Fed is the second most powerful person in the world, next only to the president of the United States. Some say the chairman is even more powerful.

When Ben Bernanke publicly stated on September 8, 2013, the Fed's intent to continue its policy of quantitative easing, global markets instantly reversed direction from a worrying downward spiral to an exuberant upward surge. Even POTUS can't do that. Dr. Robert R. Johnson's Invest with the Fed takes the simple position that correct interpretation of Federal Reserve policy actions leads to better investing decisions. To this end, they present strategies that will help you design a portfolio that takes Fed policy into account.

Dr. Johnson is the author of multiple books and scholarly articles on portfolio management, asset valuation, wealth management, and monetary policy. He currently serves as Professor of Finance in Creighton University's Heider College of Business and on the board of RS Investment Management. From 1996 to 2011 he held a number of senior executive positions at CFA Institute and has extensive experience with credentialing programs, ethical and professional codes of conduct, and global business expansion. He is co-author of the books Strategic Value Investing, The Tools and Techniques of Investment Planning, and Investment Banking for Dummies. He is also coauthor of the forthcoming book Investing by Fed, which is scheduled to be published in December of 2014.
