I was SO excited to interview Catherine and Barry Cohen. I am sort of a "fangirl" (but not in a creepy weird way), They have a podcast I listen to all of the time called Together 24/7 and I am a fan! It's about building businesses together but we talked about always being together. Which, they pretty much are!
Barry and Catherine were genetically programmed to work together. Catherine's parents built a retail shoe business and have worked together most of their 55 plus years of marriage. Barry's father is 83 years old and still not retired. He wouldn't know what to do with himself and his wife would end up killing him if he was home all day every day.
Barry and Catherine are business strategists and have a company called Business Solutions for Growth. They work with businesses to help them create a plan of action for their business. We talked about what starting a business as a couple after retirement might look light. Retirement can be boring. A lot of people do this not necessarily for the money, but to do something they really enjoy.
Some couples enjoy always being together however, there are some things Barry and Catherine say are important to remember:
Regardless of whether you plan on spending every minute together in your retirement or plan on doing things separately, Barry and Cat say you should figure it out before retirement. Decide what you are going to do, write a list and talk about it. Prepare for always being together.
If you are thinking of creating a business, Barry and Catherine have offered my listeners a FREE 30-minute discovery session. You can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 602-399-7430
How do you handle always being together? Do you have any ideas or thoughts? We would love to hear them in the comments belo

You can give a gift to your family, the gift of grief. We cannot escape death but we can embrace the process. Samantha Betten helps people give one of the greatest gifts they can give to their family, the gift of grief, or pre-planned funerals.
When someone has pre-planned their funeral, they give the gift of grief to their family members. If the funeral is not pre-planned, then instead of being able to grieve, someone has to make all of the arrangements and not everyone is able to do that.
