Mark, where do you have your portfolio invested?


By Mark Charnet

ver the 33 years Ive


been a Retirement
and Estate Planning
Specialist, most of my
prospects, before becoming
my clients, asked me the question: Where is your portfolio
invested? It has been by far
the most frequently asked
question of me but, it really
wasnt what these people
wanted to know. The disguised question was simply:
Do you actually own what
you are attempting to sell me
today? More simply stated,
Do you own what you sell?
Proudly, I would answer, yes I
do, if I didnt, then you would
refer to me as a professional
hypocrite! Whether a life
insurance policy, an annuity,
mutual funds or disability
insurance, I became my own
client and am thrilled that I
took my own advice.
I profess that everyone,
during their working years,
purchase a life insurance policy and a disability policy
while simultaneously investing money systematically into
quality stock mutual funds,
both foreign and domestic.
The addition of a variable
annuity allows for tax-deferral
of any growth realized in the
contract; while the mutual
funds though currently taxable, are reachable without a
government penalty prior to
age 59 for a home purchase,
an emergency need or a new
car. In my case those funds
were needed for my first home
purchase, cars and baby needs

as our family grew to 4 children. I started accounts for


each of our kids shortly after
their birth to accumulate for
college, a car for them and for
their retirement plans. While
still working I am funding all
of their accounts and the
retirement accounts for my

wife and I. However, should I


become disabled or die, insurance would swoop-in and save
the day and my family from
financial ruin. Every month I
continue to fund my mutual
funds and annuities, my IRAs
and my personal pension
plans.
I both preach and practice living below my means to
have the financial resources to
build and grow our money.
Over the three decades that
have passed since my entering
this industry, Ive had to use
some of the products I sold

myself, like health insurance


and the mutual funds I invested in to pay for my two older
childrens college expenses
taking absolutely no loans in
their names or mine. The
mutual funds continued to
grow over the contributions so
I had the opportunity to with-

draw again to purchase a second home, then a third and


more, all with no mortgages.
My Simplified Employee
Pension Plan (SEP) annuities
have grown to the point now
that they can support us during our retirement. When I
die, there will be additional
life insurance dollars to guarantee my wifes solvency and
continue to leave a bequest
and legacy for our children.
My wife and I have practiced what we preached for
over thirty years, utilizing the
identical plans, programs,

policies and strategies that we


professed and marketed to our
prospects and clients of the
day, of the months, of the
years and over the decades
that have gone by. As new
and improved innovations
presented themselves, it was
incumbent upon me to inform

my clients that an opportunity for upgrading was available


and in addition to myself and
family, they should upgrade
too!
These are the things that
a well-versed, competent, professional financial advisor
does for his clients and if your
financial planner is not working for you to this end, perhaps a change is in order.
Does he or she practice what
they preach and teach? It is a
great question that in my
opinion needs to be asked and
the answer given to you by

your financial advisor.


A few years ago, I almost
had to test my planning techniques by my wife potentially
filing a claim with my life
insurance carriers; I qualified
to receive payments on the
disability policies too. Further,
my designees required the
usage of 3 legal documents my
estate planning attorney prepared, the Health Proxy, the
Power of Attorney and the
Living Will! Fortunately,
everything and everyone was
prepared and empowered to
act on my behalf and with the
financial resources to do so. I
recovered from my cardiac
ordeal to write this column
today, five years later. Like
practicing a fire drill that we
hope will never be needed,
each of us must be prepared
for some bad news down the
road and what is becoming an
even bigger bout, the longevity game. Did you realize that
you might outlive your money
and resources? There is little
fear of that in my case and the
families I serve because of the
innovative products and
opportunities available in the
marketplace today. If your
portfolio does not enjoy the
same protection, perhaps you
should call me to discuss it! It
might only be a few minor
portfolio carburetor adjustments or you might require a
major revamping of everything, regardless, the exam
should be taken, just like the
fire drills you ran as a child in
school.

Weeknight activities the whole family can enjoy

any families have


their own routines
on weeknights. Kids
may tackle their homework
before dinner, and once everyones plate is clean, family
members may spend time
together or go their separate
ways, spending time online
with friends or watching their
favorite television programs on
the couch.
Parents who feel their
weeknights dont include
enough family time are often
on the hunt for more familyfriendly activities the whole
family can enjoy even if everyone has to go to work or school
the next day. The following are
a handful of family-friendly
weeknight activities that can
bring families closer together.
Movie night: Family
movie night is a tradition for
many families, and parents who
want to spend more time
together as families may find
that movie night is a great way
to share a few laughs or even
facilitate discussions about
important topics broached in
certain films. Each week let a
different family member pick
that weeks movie and ask him
or her to explain his or her
choice and why they think its
a film the whole family will
enjoy. Let the kids join you as
you get the popcorn ready or
make special treats to enjoy
while the movie is playing.
Family walk: Walking is a
great way for parents to instill a
love of physical activity in their
children, and nightly walks
also make great opportunities
for families to leave their
devices behind and discuss the
goings-on in their lives.

Weather permitting, take a


family walk after dinner each
night, which can help make
your family healthier and
strengthen the bonds between
family members.
Writing activities: Another way families can escape
their devices and resist the
temptation of social media on
weeknights is to get together
for weekly writing sessions. Ask
each family member to create
brief lists on a range of topics,
whether its a list of favorite
books or countries each person
wants to visit or a bucket list of
things each family member
wants to do at one point in
their lives. Allow about 15

minutes for each person to


write his or her lists, and then
discuss each persons list,
including the inspiration
behind each item that made it
onto the lists.
Game night: Classic
board games or games like
checkers might not be as popular today as they were prior to
the advent of the Internet, but
that does not mean a night
centered around such games
does not still make for a very
family-friendly evening. Stock
up on some classic board games
and share the responsibility of
choosing which game to play
each week. Board games can
take up to a few hours to play,

and thats a great opportunity


for families to share some
laughs without being interrupted by their devices.
Craft night: Arts and
crafts night is another great
way for families to spend time
together. Parents can choose
age-appropriate projects that
can help kids and adults alike
tap into their creative sides.
Solicit ideas when planning
craft night so everyone feels
like they played their part.
Nights together as a family do not need to be limited to
weekends. Parents willing to get
a little creative can enjoy family-friendly evenings no matter
what day it happens to be.

How to find a comfortable crate for your dog

any trainers and veterinarians recommend that dog owners buy dog crates as soon as
possible after buying or adopting a dog. A pet owners choice
of crate can go a long way
toward ensuring the dog reacts
positively to the crate.
The Association of
Professional Dog Trainers recommends the use of crates for
puppies and dogs as a shortterm training tool and as a safety precaution throughout the
dogs life. Crates can be invaluable in house training young
dogs and helping to curtail
destructive behavior, such as
chewing. As more people trav-

Pet owners who desire certain


materials or have special
requirements of their dog crates
probably can find the biggest
selection at pet supply stores.

el with their pets, crates also


provide a safe and convenient
confinement option in the car,
on an airplane and in petfriendly hotel rooms.
Crates also offer a cozy
spot dogs can call their own.
Crates can feed dogs need for
security. When used correctly,
and not as punishment for a
dog, crates can serve as comforting retreats for dogs when
they need alone time.

What size to get?


It is important to consider
the size of the dog when purchasing a crate. The crate
shouldnt be too big nor too
small. Choose a crate in which
the dog can sit up straight without banging its head on the top
of the crate. Dogs also should
be able to turn around with
ease and lie down on their sides
with paws extended.
Many pet owners make
the mistake of getting a larger

Where to buy?
Crates can be purchased
at most pet supply retailers, and
they also are available at many
department stores, hardware
stores and online retailers.

crate than is necessary. Dogs do


not like to soil in their sleeping
areas, but crates that are too
large may encourage pooches
to use one end as a bathroom
and the other as a sleeping
area, and ultimately that can
make dogs less enthusiastic
about crates. Also, crates that
are too large will not provide
the feeling of security dogs
crave.
According to Labrador
Training HQ, measure the dog
while he is standing upright
from nose to the base of the
tail. Add five to six inches to

this measurement, and that


will be an ideal length for the
crate. Also measure the dog
while he is sitting upright.
Again, add a few inches to the
measurement, and this will be
the minimum height of the
crate.
What about a growing puppy?
Some owners prefer to
upgrade crates as their dogs
grow. Budget-conscious pet
owners can buy a larger crate
and then use a divider to size it
down for puppy use. The
divider can be moved as necessary when the puppy grows.
What are the different crate
materials?
Crates come in plastic,
metal wire, wood, and nylon or
another fabric material. Each
has its own share of advantages
and disadvantages. Wire crates
are what many people envision
in a crate, and such crates are
among the most popular
because they provide ventilation, an easily cleaned floor
tray, folding capabilities, and
visibility for the dog. However,
some dog owners feel wire
crates bear too close a resemblance to cages.
Fabric crates can be cozy
and light, but dogs that are
prone to scratching and tearing
may be able to escape them
easily. Plastic crates can be
more private, and wood crates
can be customized to fit with
the dcor of the house.
Pet owners should shop
around to find which crate best
fits the needs of their dogs. If
crates will remain in the home,
a more attractive crate may be
a priority. If the crate will be
used for travel, something
lighter and more portable may
be the best fit.
Crates can be handy tools
for dog owners, as crates pro-

vide a safe environment for


dogs when owners arent home
and can make great places for
dogs to curl up in when they
need a break from stimulation.
Crates also are handy for travel.
For more information on the
right crate, speak with a vet or
consult with employees of
a pet supply retailer.

What are signs of grub damage?
Grubs not only damage
lawns on their own, but they
serve as food sources for local
wildlife as well, attracting
wildlife, which can do its own
damage to lawns.
Lawns can turn brown
for a variety of reasons, and
grubs are just one of many
potential culprits behind the

pull up the areas where grass


has turned brown to see if
there are any grubs, which
look like worms.
Landscapes that have
suddenly become popular
among local wildlife that is

digging up lawns may also be


infested with grubs. Skunks
and raccoons feed on grubs,
and may dig up lawns where
grubs are present.
Damage resulting from
grub infestation is most visible
from late summer to early fall.

Can grub damage be prevented?


Preventing grub infestation typically requires homeowners to keep watchful eyes
on their lawns. Pay particular
attention to areas that begin
to brown, especially areas that

are turning brown in spite of


adequate watering. An early
indicator of a grub infestation
is small grubs around the roots
of grass. In such instances,
applying insecticide may be
enough to prevent a small
grub problem from spreading.

Insecticides also can be


an effective preventative
measure for homeowners
looking to avoid grub infestations. Speak with a local landscaping professional for recommendations about which
insecticide to apply and how

best to apply it.


What can I do about grub
damage?
Attempting to treat
grubs in the spring may be
ineffective, as grubs are large

Tips for Dining out on Mothers Day

other's Day is right


around the corner,
and this special
holiday serves to honor all
those women who devote so
much time and effort to their
families. While gifts and
other trinkets are certainly
part of the celebration, a vast
majority of children opt to
treat Mom to a night out on
the town come Mother's
Day. Not only does this give
mom a night off from cooking, but also it presents an

opportunity to get dressed up


and spend time together as a
family.
A vast number of families travel to their favorite
restaurants for Mother's Day
meals. Mother's Day is one of
the busiest holidays of the
year for restaurants. The
National Retail Federation
says
54.8
percent
of
Americans treat their mothers to a special meal out on
Mother's Day. Billions of dollars are generated by people

eating out with their mothers. With large crowds to be


expected, diners can follow a
few tips when treating Mom
to a meal.
Book early... very early. To
guarantee a reservation at
any restaurant, namely your
favorite restaurant, you will
need to make a reservation
well in advance of Mother's
Day. It's never too early to
put your name on the reservation list. Don't forget
Mother's Day is Sunday, May
10, 2015.
Expect to wait. Even with a
reservation, you're bound to

spend some time waiting at


the restaurant. Other families may be lingering at their
tables, as no one wants to
rush Mom out of the door.
Plan accordingly for a potentially long wait time. This
means having a snack before
you leave. Don't arrive famished, as no one wants the
dining party to be hungry
and cranky, which is not a
good way to celebrate Mom.
Have plenty of snacks and
drinks on hand for young
children, as well as activities
to keep them entertained.
Consider dining out a day

before or after. Restaurants


are generally packed on
Mother's Day, and as a result
kitchen and wait staffs might
be overtaxed. What's more,
diners might be relegated to
a special or abbreviated
menu. If you want a more
relaxed setting and the ability to order whatever you
desire, it may be a better idea
to celebrate Mother's Day in
advance. Then have Mom
enjoy a relaxing day at home
on her special day.
Take-out is an option.
Families can treat Mom to a
dinner out, without really

having to go out. Many


restaurants offer takeout
service, so you will not be
limited to pizza or Chinese.
Even chain restaurants have
curbside service, so if Mom is
in the mood for a burger or
something more elaborate,
she'll have that option.
Expect an included gratuity. Restaurants often include
a gratuity in the bill when
servicing larger parties, such
as those that might be celebrating Mother's Day. The
standard gratuity rate is 18
percent, but you may want to

main goal is to ensure Mom's


comfort and happiness. If
very young children are in
tow, she may not be able to
relax and enjoy her meal.
Infants will need to be fed,
and toddlers may be easily

distracted. Have a sitter


watch little ones when adults
are dining out, and then
Mom can enjoy time with
the kids when she returns
home for more celebrating.

Fruit Trifle

ith the warmer


temperatures and
fresh fruits that
ripen this time of year, a fruit
dessert is the perfect way to
complete
your
special
Mothers Day meal and an
easy recipe to get the kids
involved. This recipe can be
made ahead of time and
chilled until you are ready to
serve. You can substitute a
blend of other seasonal
berries or your moms own
favorite fruits would work
equally well. Or try layering
strawberries, blueberries and
raspberries, each on a different layer for an even fancier
treat. Make sure to use a
large, clear bowl to serve, or
create individual glass serving cups, as its the best way
to show off the many layers
of this surprisingly easy
dessert.

INGREDIENTS
4 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
(or 4 cups of your favorite seasonal fruit)
1 cup cold milk
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
2 cups heavy whipping cream,
whipped and unsweetened.
1 package instant vanilla pudding mix
1 cup sour cream (you can use
low-fat if you like)
8 cups angel food cake, cubed
Fresh mint leaves

DIRECTIONS
In a large bowl,
combine
the
milk, pudding
mix, orange peel
and sour cream.
Beat until thickened. Fold in
the
whipped
cream.
Place
about four cups
of the cubed
cake in the bottom of your
serving dish. Arrange one
layer of strawberries around
the sides of the dish and on
top of the cake. Top with
half of the cream mixture.
Add the rest of the cake
cubes, then another layer of
strawberries and the rest of
the cream. Top with a few
more berries and mint leaves
for garnish. Chill for at least
two hours before serving.
