Financial Freedom Tour

Readers know that Mr. ToughMoneyLove is a baby boomer. That’s how I can get away with calling out the mistakes of others, because our generation made those mistakes long before many of you did. Being a baby boomer personal finance blogger has other perks, as in a free trip to Orlando, courtesy of the wise and powerful AARP.

That’s right. Mr. ToughMoneyLove has prevailed (with two others) in a competition to be a guest blogger at the AARP national member event at the end of this month. Mrs. ToughMoneyLove and I are Orlando bound.

Stop groaning. You should be so lucky as to be entertained by the likes of Gladys Knight, B.B. King, Gloria Gaynor, Richie Havens, Los Lobos, Judy Collins, and Crosby Stills & Nash, all in one weekend. Staying awake for all of it will be tough, but that’s why they call me Mr. ToughMoneyLove. Hopefully none of these entertainers will be performing in a wheelchair. That would be hard to handle.

There will be many educational sessions to attend but I will be concentrating and blogging on the financial stuff. These sessions include:

  • Retirement Surprises That Can Impact Your Plans
  • Working for Yourself – What it means and How to Get Started
  • The Financial Freedom Tour
  • Straight Talk About Families and Money
  • The New Affluence: Achieving Financial Security in a Changed Economy
  • Write Your Own Retirement Paycheck

You can check out the complete schedule here, learn more and sign up to attend here, or sign up to participate remotely here.

This should be fun and interesting. As I told the AARP when I entered the competition, I may not agree with everything I hear and see at the event, but I will be happy to write about it either way.

Love or hate the AARP, they do provide tons of financial and retirement planning information that is useful to folks of all ages. So participate if you can or stay tuned and read my commentary if you can’t.

    Nice work TML! That’s great. I doubt the AARP would like my 29 year old view on things.

    Does this mean you’ll be speaking or just writing about the event?
