The Matt Feret Show

The Matt Feret Show focuses on the health, wealth and wellness of adults, retirees, and caregivers helping loved ones. I interview interesting people, insiders, and experts to help light a path to successful living in midlife, retirement and beyond. Getting older, planning for retirement, taking care of our loved ones AND ourselves is so much more complex and dynamic than stocks, bonds, annuities and insurance on repeat. While those topics are occasionally covered, I kept looking for a show that discussed the "other" really important middle and older-adult issues like relationships, health, wealth, travel, careers, mindfulness, ageing, sleep health, retirement planning, Medicare, Social Security, financial advisors, caregiving, retirement homes and communities, taking care of parents or loved ones from afar, retirement time management, family dynamics, and so much more. I couldn't find that show, so I decided to create it myself! Welcome to The Matt Feret Show! Find out more at https://TheMattFeretShow.com Hosted on Acast.
