Relax Boomer Parents; Millennials May Be More Financially Savvy Than You Realize

Millennials came of age at a time when the job market was weak and their student-loan debt was high.Such a dreary combination did not bode well for a rosy financial future.

But could it be, when all is said and done, that millennials will prove to be just as financially savvy as their baby boomer parents?

Many millennials definitely have traits and experiences that could serve them well when it comes to planning their finances,” says Dennis Notchick, an Investment Advisor and Certified Financial Planner with Safeguard Investment Advisory Group (

Just to give you one example, many millennials are good about creating budgets. That’s a good habit to have because keeping track of your monthly expenses helps you do a better job of planning and saving.”

Millennials have become the largest segment of the adult population, and a Deloitte study reports they are expected to grow their wealth significantly in the next several years, at least in part because they are heading into their prime-earning years. (The oldest millennials are in their mid-30s.)

The fact they grew up in a time of fast-developing technology and are quick to adapt to the changes also gives them an advantage, Notchick says. In the financial-investing world, new technology now provides for an instant snapshot of an investment or an entire estate on an app on their phone, and that’s a domain they are comfortable working within.

Based on his experience, Notchick says other ways many millennials may fare well in the world of finance include.

• Millennials are proactive when they need advice.

Millennials brim with confidence when it comes to money, with 84 percent saying they are confident about their ability to handle their finances, according to a Bank of America/USA Today survey. But as confident as they are, they realize there are some things they just don’t know or simply can’t learn through a Google search, Notchick says. Millennials also are willing to listen to their boomer parents when it comes to financial advice. One study showed that 65 percent of millennials believe their parents provided a good example of how to have a successful financial future. They also realize that there is a cost to doing nothing and also a potential risk.

• Millennials change with the times.

Millennials adapt easily to change and new ideas, whereas a majority of boomers are slower to adapt as the world, and the markets, evolve.  “What worked in the past may not work in the future, and the markets we are in right now are not the markets of the 80s and 90s,” Notchick says. On the other hand, boomers do have the advantage of experience, right or wrong, and one thing their experience has taught them is that it’s always important to keep learning.

• Millennials take a different route with retirement savings.

While boomers were encouraged to contribute to a 401(k) or an IRA, millennials are increasingly looking towards Roth IRAs, Roth 401(k)s, S Corporations and a certain type of life insurance, Notchick says. They see the giant tax liability that awaits retirees who used those traditional tax-deferred accounts, and they want to avoid it. They prefer to pay their taxes now so they can withdraw the money tax free in retirement.

“Because of the size of their generation, millennials are going to have a major impact on the economy and on investing in the coming years,” Notchick says. “Don’t sell them short because many of them are very much up to the challenge.”

The Best Alternatives to Working from Home

For many, working from home offers optimal comfort and a secluded space to get work done. Though, when you are an entrepreneur or freelancer and working from home is your norm, sometimes you need an alternative space to work for when you need to escape the home office. With the amount of technology & products that we have at our disposal, it is possible to run a business from remote locations. Luckily today there are numerous options available. From visiting the local cafe to joining a shared office space, an alternative office space exists to fit your needs.

The Local Cafe

With free wifi, places like Starbucks or your local coffee house offer a great remote working location. The noise can be a welcome sound when you need a break from the silence of your home office and being among the buzz can help with working from home isolation. Manage your to-do lists, answer emails, write, etc. all from the comfort of the numerous tables or seating options. Another perk? Easy caffeine refills.

The Local Library

Sometimes you just need a change of scenery. If you are still looking for a quiet place to work but need a break from your home office, consider going to the local library. Most libraries have large tables and Wi-Fi and allow you to linger for hours. They can provide a great space when you really need to focus and need minimal distractions. Just be sure to check their opening and closing hours and find a space with good lighting.

Co-Working Spaces

Increasingly popular in large cities, co-working spaces have significant benefits. Co-working spaces are defined as membership-based workspaces where diverse groups of freelancers, remote workers, and other independent professionals work together in a shared, communal setting. For those who have spent significant time working from home can probably relate to experiencing some type of isolation. One fix to avoid working from home depression is to surround yourself with people.

Co-working spaces allow you to work in a space with other people in the same position. They offer a great opportunity to share ideas with others, network, or even just meet for lunch. They can provide a breath of fresh air, spark inspiration and breed business connections. Also, studies have shown that people who work in co-working spaces thrive. Mainly because people who join co-working spaces see their work as meaningful, they have more job control, and they feel part of a community. An extra bonus is that many spaces have been designed for productivity and have plenty of natural light and large desk spaces.

Co-working spaces are popping up all over. From traditional office spaces to outdoor areas, there is a good chance that a co-working space exists close to your location. If interested, take a day to research your options and check them out in person. You might just find your next go-to remote location.

Hot Desk

Hot desking is an affordable option for many startups, freelancers, and consultants. Hot desk services are similar to co-working spaces, in that they provide you with a workspace, a high-speed internet connection and services such as printing. The difference is that many hot desk services allow you to rent the space down to the hour while co-working spaces are designed as a longer term solution. Hot desk services still allow you the opportunity to network and socialize with others and can provide a great short-term solution when you need to escape the home office for a short period.

Other Company Offices

If you have business connections or friends that have their own office, working from another company’s office can provide a welcome change of scenery. Meeting new people and observing the company culture can be inspirational and inspire ideas for your own business. Plus, you can make use of the facilities such as the printer or scanner. Just be sure to ask! Bringing coffee and treats never hurts.


Most people are cooped up inside all day and getting out for a breath of fresh air and some sunshine can do wonders. While most outdoor spaces don’t offer wi-fi, there are a few that do like public parks or outdoor restaurants. Though, working outdoors can provide a welcome break from internet distractions and allow you to concentrate on tasks such as writing a presentation or brainstorming. Being amongst nature and enjoying the sunshine can also provide a great place to take a break and think clearly. Take a notepad and jot down new ideas or finally tackle a business problem you’ve been putting off.

Vacation Resorts

If you are an entrepreneur or freelancer, probably one of the perks to working from home is the ability to work remotely. Take it from Thomas Smale, founder of FE International, sometimes the best way to recharge is to get away. Plan a trip and schedule your day just like you would at the office. Check emails by the pool or while looking out at the mountains in the morning and take a break by heading to the beach or going for a walk. When you come back to work, you’ll feel recharged and ready to tackle the next task.


When you are in need of a change of scenery or need to be around other people, there are numerous options available that provide a great space to get work done. You may be surprised by how much an alternative workspace can increase your productivity and creativity.

Blood, sweat and tears: New ways to monitor glucose levels in diabetes – a $12billion market IDTechEx

People with diabetes have traditionally self-monitored their glucose levels using disposable biosensors and invasive sampling techniques. While this industry has been one of the success stories of the printed electronics industry, worth around $6 billion today, profitability is falling as government reimbursement models are changing and strain is put on both consumers and manufacturers. However new methods of glucose monitoring are emerging. These technologies are analysed comprehensively in the brand-new report from IDTechEx Research, Technologies for Diabetes Management 2017-2027: Forecasts, Players, Opportunities.

Glucose is present in many biological fluids at varying levels and a wide range of players are investigating ways to utilise these fluids for long term glucose monitoring. The most successful of these ventures have been in measuring glucose in interstitial fluid, where continuous glucose monitors are receiving regulatory approval and adoption by people with diabetes across Europe and North America.

Continuous glucose monitors consist of a wearable sensor and a receiver (which in many cases can be a smartphone). The sensor consists of a microneedle which sits just under the skin and records glucose levels at regular intervals and transmits these to the reader via Bluetooth or NFC technology. Sensors last an average of 6 days, and currently require regular calibration with blood based biosensors.

Companies are investigating the potential for glucose testing in sweat, tears and saliva with varying levels of success and these projects are also analysed in the new IDTechEx report.

Such long-term monitoring solutions will enable the creation of an artificial pancreas- a device that can monitor glucose levels and administer controlled doses of insulin accordingly- leading to fully automated diabetes control. The first such device received regulatory approval in late 2016 and is expected for release later this year.

Both insulin pens and pumps are using new sensor and communication technologies to enable new features, with several start-ups, backed by major pharmaceutical companies, developing new platforms to monitor insulin dosing and other vital information. Several forecasts in the report detail future growth markets for individual sensor components within a system as well as the market for the devices themselves.

Market value of glucose monitoring – for full forecasts please purchase the report

Source: IDTechEx Research report Technologies for Diabetes Management 2017-2027: Forecasts, Players, Opportunities.

The report examines diabetes technologies across 7 key areas:

Sensors for glucose monitoring – The established blood glucose market manufactures over 20 billion test strips annually, however, as is discussed here, several factors are restraining the profitability of the industry and driving technological changes.

Beyond blood glucose measurements – Glucose exists in biological fluids other than blood, continuous glucose monitors and wearable devices are gaining traction and seeing large uptake by consumers.

Sensors for Ketone monitoring – When blood glucose levels are too high, acidic ketone bodies, the by-product of improper metabolism build up in the blood stream, leading to potentially life threatening complications. The range of available biosensors to measure and quantify ketone levels are reviewed.

Smart insulin pens – Start-ups backed by large pharmaceutical companies are adding sensors and connectivity to insulin pens to unlock a range of analytical tools. Several leading start-ups and companies are profiled and their products discussed.

Insulin pumps: towards an artificial pancreas –  Compared to insulin pens, insulin pumps offer a more controlled rate of hormone delivery. Discussed is the progress whereby combining pump technologies with continuous glucose monitoring platforms is leading to the development of an artificial pancreas device, offering real-time sensor automated insulin delivery in response to changing glucose levels.

Sensors for side effects – Covering the diverse utilisation of innovative sensor technologies across novel aspects diabetes care, including; sensors in wearable devices, the ability to monitor other end points such as diabetic neuropathy as well as assessing ulcer development in diabetic patients.

Sensors for early diagnosis – Discussing the use of emerging technologies to aid the early detection of diabetes, thereby preventing long hospital stays and other complications.

The report has been created through primary research based on interviews with key player in the diabetes industry as well as physicians and people with diabetes to understand the emerging trends in diabetes technology and deliver market forecasts across several different technologies. This brand new report from IDTechEx Research is of key importance to innovators in medical device technology as well as players in the printed electronics, sensor, and wearable industries. The report highlights the significant factors that have been essential for the development of successful devices for diabetes management as well as analysing devices that have been unsuccessful in the commercial field.

How To Stay Young (At Least In Spirit) When You’re Retired

Mohr Keet of South Africa bungee jumped when he was 96, landing himself in the Guinness Board of World Records.

Yuichiro Miura of Japan climbed Mount Everest when he was 80.

Not everyone in the golden years of life will attempt and accomplish such extraordinary feats, but most people can take steps to keep themselves young – at least in spirit – when they reach retirement.

Unfortunately, for many people retirement planning remains fixated on finances, so when the big day arrives they’re not quite ready to segue into life’s new chapter, says Ann Vanderslice (, president and CEO of Retirement Planning Strategies, which specializes in advising federal workers about their benefits.

“After you’ve planned for the money, there is still anxiety about retirement,” she says. “You don’t know what it’s like to not work and so there is that emotional part of retirement you need to manage. Sometimes people aren’t ready in any way, shape or form.”

She says a few ways to hang onto a little youthful exuberance while aging gracefully in retirement include:

• Be a lifelong learner.

Making the effort to learn about new things keeps our brains young. Read something you wouldn’t normally read. Sit in on a lecture that a college opens to the public. “Some of my clients mention they took classes in philosophy or in a foreign language,” Vanderslice says. “It’s proven that those who are lifelong learners have a greater sense of optimism and a lower chance of dementia.”

• See the world – or at least some of it.

There are no doubt plenty of places you haven’t ventured out to, some close by and others far away. Traveling and enjoying new experiences is a great way to keep you feeling young and enthusiastic about life, Vanderslice says, whether you head to a state park just an hour’s drive away or you board a plane bound for Paris. “Part of the fun of traveling is deciding where you want to go,” Vanderslice says. “The sky should be the limit.” Don’t eliminate anything from your initial list just because of expense, she says. You might be able to find bargains, and because you’re retired you can travel any time you want, which allows you go in the off season when prices are lower.

• Remember your doctor’s advice.

Activities such as enrolling in a college class can help keep you mentally young, but you want your body to cooperate, too. “We’re always looking for that magic bullet, the easy and quick way to feeling younger,” Vanderslice says. “The truth is that those things your doctor tells you – exercise, eat a healthy diet, get the appropriate amount of sleep – are about as close to a magic bullet as you’re going to get.”

“People think that money is the most important aspect of retirement, but it’s really No. 2,” Vanderslice says. “You can have more than enough money, but if you aren’t healthy or doing the things you enjoy, the money won’t matter.”

About Ann Vanderslice

“Smile Train is extremely grateful for the continued generosity and support from Christie and Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare,” said Schaefer. “I’m grateful to be here today accepting this check on behalf of the 300 children who will receive their new smiles.”

Samsung S8: 90% of customers remain loyal to the brand despite the Note 7 crisis 

Samsung is launching the new Samsung 8 this week and Report Linker conducted a new survey to measure if the brand’s image has been affected by last year’s explosions of the Note 7 phones and if their customers remain as loyal as before.

Findings show that loyalty has even increased since the last ReportLinker survey, conducted in October 2016:

  • 81% of smartphone users are still confident in the safety of their smartphones
  • But the crisis has impacted all manufacturers as even Apple’s customers don’t trust the brand as much as they used to (79%, -12 pts compared to October 2016)
  • 52% of smartphones’ owners say the future Samsung Galaxy S8 will be of better quality than the previous ones
  • And this statement is even more significant among Samsung customers (63%)
  • More than half of respondents (56%), mentioned their interest in buying the new Samsung smartphone.


 Also, their customers’ loyalty is stronger than ever before as nearly 9 out of 10 would consider the brand for a next purchase, which is more often a certitude than it was five months ago.

5 Ways To Make Use of New Tech To Improve Your Income Flow

When it comes to finding new ways to make money, looking at the latest technology is always going to give you at least a little bit of inspiration. Because it’s the people who are the most creative with new stuff coming out that end up gaining the benefit of ‘the early bird gets the worm’, then you know that for yourself, that path could work as well.

Five ways in particular that you can start to creatively use new tech to help out with your cash flow include driving your car as a service, creating a blog, learning to leverage social media for your business purposes, trying out micro trading, and saving money with coupons available through aggregate websites.

Drive Your Car

By involving yourself with Uber or Lyft, you’re giving yourself a chance to exchange your time, and the fact that you have a quality car, into money! The equation is really that simple. You make sure that you fulfill the requirements for the company, and then you pretty much create your own hours as you see fit, meet new people, and learn about your neighborhood even – all while making extra cash!

Create a Blog

You may at least be tangentially aware that you can make money with a blog. But you might not exactly know what the specifics are. With a little bit of research with respect to learning the ins and outs of things like the Google AdSense program, you’ll understand how the finances work, and then after that, you just have to solve the problem of figuring out what type of content you present the best, and how to get traffic to your pages once they’re up.

Leverage Social Media For Business

New social media platforms and techniques to help grow businesses are popping up all the time. Think of the way that businesses and brands started using things like Instagram or Snapchat to help convey their messages! You can do the same thing. By using social media for business, you’re essentially developing broad income streams to widen your appeal.

Try Out Microtrading

Learning to use the stock market has always been an interesting way for people to make money. One relatively new technology that has been shaping up is the way the people are interacting with microtrading. Basically, there are apps and software programs that analyze stock market shifts and can automatically operate to try to get your a profit on a micro scale, while getting substantial gains in the long run.

Save Money With Coupons

And finally, there are new websites that have popped up that use the latest search technology to find every single coupon or coupon code imaginable. By simply keeping an eye on these sites, you can get notified every time a money saving opportunity occurs, and this savings directly translates into a better income and expense readout.
