The Loan Doctor Is In

Posted on December 12, 2008. Filed under: Boomer Business | Tags: , , , , , |

The guests in the first half hour of our show today feature the go-to-guys for people who may be facing foreclosure. Doc Sullivan, The Loan Doctor, has literally saved about 100 homes from the yellow and black AUCTION sign that signals the end to the American Dream for the unfortunate homeowner. Such a sign in his neighborhood prompted Doc to un-retire and use his knowledge of banking and the inner workings of the system to bring people back from the brink of disaster. David Potts works with Doc and often serves as the first person to review and assess a situation that needs The Loan Doctor’s attention. You can tell they have put the heart and soul into saving people’s homes and that it’s way more than a mortgage loan modification!

Matt Bunk is our guest for the final hour of the show. As always, he brings information about the goings on at the Capitol and we feel like you really do hear it here first . . .

Boomers look for pathways to wisdom in second half of life

Posted on December 2, 2008. Filed under: Boomer Faith, Boomer Philosophy | Tags: , , , , , , |

Pathways to Wisdom with The Boomer and the Babe is a radio show for boomers searching for the “it” in life. The program aired for the first time on Friday, November 7 on KXXT 1010 AM. The 90-minute show starts at 2:30 PM Arizona Time (4:30 Eastern Standard Time).

Is this all there is? There has to be more. Where do I find “it”? What is “it”? Do I even know what I’m looking for? Where do I look? Is it religion, philosophy, spiritual, metaphysical or something else? Is it back to basics mainstream religion or is it some little known alternative religious teachings?

The Boomer Generation has been searching for “it” for decades. At times and for some “it” was drugs, sex and rock and roll. For still others “it” has been the acquisition of money and material possessions. Some have become “born again” and still others never left the traditional practices of the centuries-old organized religions.

On one point there is no argument. Boomers are searching. Matt Thornhill wrote in The Boomer Project Op/Ed published in the Richmond Times-Dispatch: “As Boomers get closer to the ‘what’s next’ after life, they will reach out to organized religion or other spiritual forces to get a sense of the ‘grand plan’ as it relates to their world on a very personal basis”.

It’s this searching that we will discuss on our Pathways to Wisdom Show. There are more books, articles, churches, temples, mosques, seminars, teachers, gurus, pastors, ministers and high priests than ever before in our history. In other words plenty of topics for conversation.

We have no intention of endorsing any of these “Pathways to Wisdom,” but rather reporting, questioning and discussing the options.

Keep in mind, “wisdom” does not just pertain to matters of spirit, but peace of mind as well. What gives one peace of mind might include the knowledge that your future is secure as you age; that you have prepared for your declining years whenever they occur. That your family is well. That you are healthy. That you are comfortable in your own skin. How you attain this inner peace is a journey, and we will follow many journeys on “Pathways to Wisdom.”

Join us in these discussions and hopefully some insight might be gained that can help you find your personal pathway to wisdom.
