How a near fatal accident uncovered a broken home care system

Ron Gold Speaking at TEDx NJIT

When a head-on bicycling crash with an SUV crushed my spine and left me a paraplegic in 2011, I found very little inspiration from my very broken body. That is, until I realized how my broken body could be the impetus to help fix America’s broken home care system.

Insurance Agents……..Greedy & Money Grubbing?

Over the past 20 years I have seen numerous articles in well-respected newspapers and magazines maligning insurance agents as being primarily motivated by greed and not working in the best interest of the client.

President Kennedy understood our worth when he said:

“I can think of no more effective agent in advancing our freedom to live as we choose than the insurance salesman. This man knows the economic pulse of the country as few men may, for he walks all streets of American life and he sits down and talks to youth and to the mature and to the aged. He knows their wants.

Of Retirement Age, but Remaining in the Work Force. The who and why of increased elder participation in the workforce

A recent Pew Research Center analysis of federal employment data shows in May 2000, 12.8 percent of those older than 65 held a job. By May 2016, the number had climbed substantially, to 18.8 percent. 

This article illustrates the significant increase of elders in the workforce and highlights that staying in the workforce is sometimes a choice but is all too often done out of economic necessity.
