not so hidden talents
Our Uber driver was kind enough to pull over for us to get a quick picture under this amazing mural.  If you zoom in you'll see what is even more stunning - my custom made earnings!  My friend Katie Mink (yes, I always call her by her full name) is a talented silver smith and has her own side business on Etsy KdMagpie.  From mural art to jewelry maker, find out what your clients' hidden talents might be.  This will come into play when discussing their retirement plans.  Turning a hobby into a business and utilizing Ebay/Amazon/Etsy/Ecommerce are two of the top home business incomes for retirees.  If you missed it, check out our new west short on Retirement Planning.   
Find other quick one-page sales ideas under new west shorts.  Read the rest of our newsletter for more on the industry. And, you can always go to our website for the latest carrier information (updated every week) under Product News & Updates.
