Craft Your Legacy with My Last Soundtrack

12/01/2017

When we die, who controls the way we’ll be remembered? Friends and family already have enough to worry about in dealing with their grief and planning a funeral/celebration, not to mention all the other details that need to be tended to when a loved one dies.


The folks at My Last Soundtrack (MLS) believe that having to navigate dark and depressing memorial sites to tell your story adds insult to injury. They provide a positive, uplifting, and really cool way for you to tell your or a loved one's story, driven by the music you love most.

Working past 70 – what are reasons and tech implications?

Trends come and trends go – but some trends generate their own trends.  No doubt you saw the news that one-fifth of individuals aged 65+ (as officially counted by someone) are still working at least part time -- some past the age of 70.  In fact, this is the highest rate of employment level of older adults in 55 years.  Perhaps this trend is something of a self-fulfilling prophecy. Apparently 79% of US workers expect to supplement retirement income by working for pay.  Maybe they read about the recent assertion that the definitional age of 'old' is moving up to 73 for women and 70 for men. Are older workers concerned about life expectancy? Do they know that if they live to age 65, life expectancy is anticipated to be 88.8 for women and 86.6 for men? Are they worried about outliving their money (aka plummeting retirement income)? It used to be that older adults feared nursing homes worse than death. That was in 2007.  Now the worry is outliving their money.
