BBB Tip: Thinking of sharing your senior photo on Facebook? Think twice!

Hmmm. I am considering closing my FB accounts. When I weigh what they add vs what they take, I’m leaning towards trying to regain some level of privacy (however naive that might be). I also believe FB is contributing to the loss of freedoms I’m living through that I never believed I’d see in my country. I never participate in surveys etc because I understood early on they were tracking schemes. Most recent example- https://www.bbb.org/article/news-releases/22088-bbb-tip-thinking-of-sharing-your-senior-photo-on-facebook-think-twice. I am trying to think of any negative impact I cannot overcome if I choose to close accounts here. I welcome input to help me reach a conclusion over the next few weeks . Thanks in advance for any ideas you can share.

bbb.org Watch out, scammers or hackers who surf through social media sites will see these #ClassOf2020 posts, and will now have the name of your high school and graduation year.

Creative Community Commerce in times of crisis . . . We're good people - I don't mean me, I mean US. Us and the US. Look around your communities and think about all the small businesses that have not yet been killed by the Goliaths. We NEED them, and now the they need US. Hairdressers, nail salons, car washes, gyms, daycare, auto repair, pet sitters, plumbers, electricians, landscapers, restaurants, bars, boutique shops, farmers markets - help me name all the small businesses that cannot go virtual. If healthy humans under the age of 60 stay home and stop using the services of businesses that cannot go virtual, we are creating avoidable economic hardship for small businesses who depend on customers when they turn the lights on in the morning.

We can be creative - I'll start: if you know someone over 60 who needs their car cleaned - can you take it to the car wash for them? If you are a hairdresser, can you go mobile and drive to your customers? If you're a bar, can you make deliveries for a few weeks? Post your best helpful "we can do this" ideas.

Non-Profit Hospitals Are Making a Killing | Richard Menger

Thanks Jared, for sharing this perspective. Yes I will work out again today, get rest, eat plant based, and drive safely. If I can avoid the “systems” (medical, legal, government), I will as long as I can. What a colossal mess. Healthcare planning is the fastest growing part of our financial planning for clients now. It has crowded out many dreams.

fee.org The leading 82 non-profit hospitals in the US have combined net assets of $203 billion. Their average growth last year was 23.6 percent. These figures would make even the most loyal believers in the free market pause—except this isn’t capitalism.

The Luxury of Latch-Key - American Capital Planning

And if you have lived this, in addition to thinking half of you is bad, you’re also put in the position of being discouraged from loving the only other parent you have. But the divorce dilemma is much more than law and emotions. I wish I could tell you that things have changed a lot since 1966 when I was a latch-key kid after my dad (who I loved and still miss) left with his paycheck and his pension. That things are better for women, children, and families when the ‘law’ decides your finances.

Every divorce needs a financial divorce pro to model outcomes and the impact of what the parties are negotiating. This one change will change outcomes for the better.

Someday, blockchain will increase transparency and trust and that giant sucking sound you will hear is the billions moving from law firms and courts back to the families who earned it to split fairly between them with a real understanding of what to expect.

Until then, parents should know that their intended target overshoots and affects the children, who they marry (if they marry), and how they use money. This is a cruel country to be broke in. And where there is enough in the marital estate, we should close the income and asset gap between the parties. This is the work we do and we’ll keep moving families forward financially through one of life’s toughest transitions.
