Jim Peak of Peak Type and Transition to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

HOOVER, ALABAMA, UNITED STATES, December 3, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Retirement is not an ending, but a new beginning, the start of a new life journey. The question is not, “What do I do in retirement?” but rather “What do I do with my retirement?”

10,000 Baby Boomers are retiring every day. Some of these people will live longer in retirement than they did in their work career. So if you're not planning for retirement, it can really take you by surprise.

Jim Peak is an executive coach, author, speaker and the founder of Peak Type and Transition where he specializes in helping individuals navigate transition and change, specifically in the area of retirement.

Originally a civil engineer, Peak discovered that he enjoyed the ‘civil’ (working with people) part of his job much more than the ‘engineering’ technical part.

"As a ‘civil’ engineer, much of my efforts focused on meeting the needs and improving the quality of life for people,” says Peak. “I learned that understanding relationships is the key to accomplish anything great. But in addition to relationships, I discovered that an important factor in success is how well we can navigate transitions and change. I am passionate about helping people understand themselves and others as they navigate through life transitional experiences.”

In major life transitions such as retirement, Peak first pulls directly from knowledge gained from his diverse assignments in his forty-year career as an Army civilian. Peak observed that each person approaches change and readjustment uniquely, based on his or her own personality. As a certified administrator of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®, Peak often relies on that long-established tool to examine his client’s preferences shaped by their personality. After researching and linking personality preferences over many years, Peak co-authored a book in 2011 entitled “Introduction to Type and Reintegration – A Framework for Managing the Transition Home” that targeted service members returning from deployments.

Upon entering his own retirement in 2015, Peak observed that the transition from work to retirement involved much more than just being prepared financially. Retirement often represents a whole new change in lifestyle with countless options to pursue. In the new retirements of today, it’s very easy to end up ‘busier’ than you were at work.

“At work you were pretty much focused on one direction: you had your day planned out and scheduled,” says Peak. “In retirement, you have to think about how you're going to replace those eight hours a day and you can literally choose from 12 different areas on any given day. But what do you really want to do with the rest of your life?”

During Peak’s retirement transition, he discovered a valuable tool that was helpful in fleshing out his retirement interests and goals. Through advanced training he received certification to use the tool to coach others as well. The retirement diagnostic tool that Peak prefers to use is the Retirement Success Profile (RSP) offered by Retirement Options, a division of Career Partners International, LLC.

Through a comprehensive series of questions, the RSP tool gives you a picture of your overall level of readiness for personal change and retirement. The RSP does this by (1) comparing your own scores on 15 retirement success factors to others like yourself who have taken the RSP, and (2) comparing your own present behavior scores to what you might expect in your ideal retirement.

The 15 measured factors of the RSP are: Work Reorientation, Attitude Toward Retirement, Directness, Health Perception, Financial Security & Planning, Current Life Satisfaction, Projected Life Satisfaction, Life Meaning, Leisure Interests, Adaptability, Life Stage Satisfaction, Dependents, Family & Relationship Issues, Perception of Age, and Replacement of Work Functions.

“Retirement doesn’t have to be scary. A retirement coach can take some of the ‘unknown factor’ out of retirement and give their clients increased confidence to move forward into this next new and meaningful chapter of their lives!”

CUTV News Radio will feature Jim Peak in an interview with Jim Masters on December 5th at 11am EST.

Spectrem’s Millionaire Investor Confidence Index Rises in November; Overall Sentiment Among Investors Weakening

Spectrem Group November 2018 Investor Confidence Index

Index range: -31 to -51, Bearish; -11 to -30, Mildly Bearish; 10 to -10, Neutral; 11 to 30, Mildly Bullish; 31 to 51, Bullish.

Non-Millionaires report growing pessimism across the board, while Millionaires slow plans to invest

CHICAGO, USA, December 3, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Despite a post-Thanksgiving market rally erasing a week of losses in the Dow Jones Industrial Average, investors remain skeptical about the stock market, Spectrem Group reported today in its High Net Worth Insights newsletter. Both affluent and millionaire investors reported a weakening in investor sentiment in November, but millionaires reported a newfound optimism in the Spectrem Household Outlook, a monthly measure of long-term confidence among investors across four financial factors impacting households. This helped boost the Spectrem Millionaire Investor Confidence Index (SMICI®) four points to 7 in November. The Spectrem Affluent Investor Confidence Index (SAICI®) fell five points in November and now stands at -1, the first negative reporting in either index in almost two years.

The monthly Spectrem Investor Confidence indices track changes in investment sentiment among the 17 MM households in America with more than $500,000 of investable assets (SAICI), and those with $1 MM or more (SMICI). November’s survey was fielded November 26-27, 2018, one day before the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose more than 600 points following the Federal Reserve’s announcement that interest rates are unlikely to continue increasing for the foreseeable future.

In addition to backing away from individual stocks and mutual fund investing in November, more than one in three (36.6 percent) millionaires indicated they did not intend to invest further in December. This is the highest level of non-participation among millionaires in 2018. However, millionaires also pulled out of safety categories of investing in November, with only 1.9 percent investing in individual bonds and 13.4 percent investing in bond mutual funds, which caused the overall Confidence Index to rise.

Non-millionaires pulled back from all classes of investments in November, with stock mutual fund investing decreasing by half (from 34.4 percent to 17.2 percent). They also reported an unusually high level of investors not planning to invest, with 55.2 percent indicating they planned to stay on the sidelines in the coming month. This is the highest level of non-participation among non-millionaires since December of 2013.

The overall Spectrem Household Outlook dropped to 13.80 in November, but the results varied widely between millionaires and non-millionaires. While the outlook among millionaires rose, the non-millionaire Outlook fell to 8.84, its first time in single digits this year. The overall Outlook for the economy fell to -4.80, sitting in negative territory for the second consecutive month for the first time since May-June 2016.

“Heightened political uncertainty following the U.S. midterm elections and growing economic headwinds tied to unresolved global trade disputes are beginning to take a toll on the mindset of wealthy investors,” said Spectrem President George H. Walper, Jr. “This backdrop of sustained political acrimony at home, rising geopolitical risks abroad and weakening prospects for the U.S. housing, automotive and agriculture sectors is pushing more investors toward the sidelines as 2018 comes to a close.”

Charts, including a deeper analysis of the index and its methodology, are available upon request. Additional insights include:

Arammu partners with Canyon Ranch; Boston-based firm pioneers concept of relationship checkups

Dr. James Cordova, President of Arammu

The idea of using "relationship checkups" is good for both business and personal applications.

In most components of healthcare treatment, the proactive approach is the recommended outcome. People go to their physicians for annual checkups to identify issues before they become more problematic”

— Dr. James Cordova, President of Arammu

BOSTON, MA, USA, December 3, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Arammu (http://arammu.com), a Massachusetts firm which has pioneered and brought to market a unique Relationship Checkup program for use in both personal and business relationships, announced today that it has partnered with Canyon Ranch (http://canyonranch.org), with locations in Lenox, MA, and Tucson, AZ, to offer this new service to the spa’s clientele.

Arammu President Dr. James Cordova said that the popular wellness spa is the first in the nation to include the “Relationship Checkup” service, which provides a proactive relationship to relationship healthcare.

Cordova said that the program, created from of 20+ years of empirical research conducted by Clark University in Worcester, MA, is modeled on the belief that relationship healthcare needs to be treated in a proactive, rather than reactive, manner. “In most components of healthcare treatment, the proactive approach is the recommended outcome. People go to their physicians for annual checkups, as they do with their dentists, with the goal of identifying issues and addressing them before they become larger and more problematic,” he said. He continued, “’The Relationship Checkup’ program does for relationships, whether they are of a personal nature or corporate, what the annual checkup does for a person’s health.”
The Relationship Checkup includes a proprietary online survey, followed by a one-hour assessment with Arammu’s hand-picked network of trained consultants, which is then followed by a detailed feedback report specifically tailored to the individual’s relationship.
“What better additional service for a wellness center to offer its clientele than a chance to do a check-in on how their relationship is progressing,” Cordova said, noting that the program has been tested and utilized already by the U.S. military. He said that the check-ins have been proven to boost key relationship metrics.
The Relationship Checkup is a brief evidence-based intervention that identifies a relationship's strengths, weaknesses, and areas of concern; and provides useful and specific suggestions to move towards deeper understanding, connection, and practical solutions for potential issues.
Couples who have participated in the checkup report higher levels of relationship satisfaction, intimacy, acceptance, and healthier communication; and lower levels of divorce, depression, relationship distress and conflict communication.
Cordova noted that Canyon Ranch is famous for taking a proactive and preventative approach to wellness offering such programs as Yoga, Reiki, Meditation, Acupuncture, and more.

About Arammu, Inc.
Arammu is a pro-active relationship healthcare company that offers proactive monthly checkups for both personal and professional relationships. These checkups have been proven to reduce stress, improve general health, increase employee attendance and productivity, as well as provide a myriad of other benefits.

Paralegals are a key component of an efficient law practice, and their role continues to expand. In fact, the job outlook is quite bright, notes Richard Kranitz

Office of Richard A. Kranitz (N/A:N/A)

most [States] have regulations imposing strict penalties for anyone who engages in the unauthorized practice of law. In fact, there are rules requiring appropriate supervision of Paralegals”

— Richard A. Kranitz, business attorney

GRAFTON, WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES, December 2, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Business attorney Richard Kranitz has published the next article in his four-part series on the paralegal profession. The complete articles will be published on the blog of Mr. Kranitz at https://richardkranitzblog.blogspot.com/

Paralegal Training and Experience

Paralegals are a key component of an efficient law practice, and their role continues to expand. In fact, the job outlook (unlike for many other professions) is quite bright. Paralegals must undergo specific education, training and/or work experience and are utilized by many different employers, including individual practitioners, law firms, corporations and various government agencies. Different certifications and credentials are available to classify the Paralegal experience. In the traditional law firm setting, the Paralegal's time is primarily spent on substantive legal work which is billed to clients at market rates, similar to other professional staff, but at a significantly lower rate than would be charged had an Attorney been solely utilized to handle such work, as was standard in the past. This hourly billing option distinguishes Paralegals from other non-lawyer staff members. However, many legal or quasi-legal organizations do not specifically bill for Paralegal time, such as Real Estate Title Firms, Immigration Law Firms, or Bankruptcy practices. Thus, in many organizations, time spent on administrative or clerical functions is not billable to the client’s case.

Due to Ethical Rules, Paralegals will never completely replace Lawyers

Only licensed attorneys may give “legal advice” to clients, and ethical rules in all U.S. States are uniform that Paralegals are strictly prohibited from doing so. Paralegals also are prohibited from directly accepting a client’s case, setting any fees, or representing a client in court (unless specifically authorized by the court, see below). All U.S. States require attorneys to be licensed and most have regulations imposing strict penalties for anyone who engages in the unauthorized practice of law. In fact, there are rules requiring appropriate supervision of Paralegals.

The largest employers of Paralegals within the legal profession are, naturally, law firms. However, businesses, corporations and government are large Paralegal employers as well. Paralegals are found in every area work of legal practice, ranging from bankruptcy law practice, estate planning, litigation, personal injury law, and immigration.

Strong Need for Paralegals Continues

Doomsday talk persisted in the recent past that technology was set to fully replace the Paralegal industry as a result of software upgrades and automated advances. At least one major law firm today uses highly sophisticated software for research previously conducted by Paralegals and even Attorneys. Many predicted the end of the Paralegal profession. The Associated Press issued a report in 2013 which claimed that an increasing number of Attorneys were using software and other technologies to do the work previously performed by Paralegal staff. It is certainly true that such software and technologies can enable solo practitioners to handle most or all of their workload without the need for any Paralegal. However, in 2014 the Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasted a continuing positive growth rate of 8 percent growth from 2014 to 2024, and then in 2016 readjusted that figure to a 15 percent growth from 2016 to 2026 – again documenting continued growth from its original projection.

This information is confirmed by the Occupational Information Network (O*NET), an online database that contains hundreds of occupational definitions to help job seekers, businesses and workforce development professionals to understand educational and occupational trends in today’s economy in the United States. O*NET was developed under the sponsorship of the US Department of Labor/Employment and Training Administration (USDOL/ETA) in the 1990s. According to O*NET, the future outlook for Paralegals is bright.

TechAhead Named Top Global Mobile App Development Company

Top B2B Company

In its yearly announcement of B2B companies that are global leaders in their category, Clutch has included TechAhead among the leading developers.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 1, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Every year, Clutch brings out an annual report of the leading B2B companies from across the world, recognizing them for their expertise in their category. The Clutch list, which is announced every November, is based on research of companies in four main categories, including Advertising and Marketing, Creative and Design, Developers, and IT and Business Services. The companies are evaluated not only on their expertise but also on their ability to deliver.

This year, TechAhead has earned a spot in the list of the best performing mobile app development companies in the world – a recognition of the company's commitment towards creating the best solutions for its clients. Speaking at the occasion, TechAhead CEO, Vikas Kaushik said, "We are honored to be recognized by Clutch as a leader in our category. The Clutch annual report is a prestigious list, and we consider this an accolade for our commitment to deliver quality solutions to our clients."
While companies can list for free on Clutch, only those that are leaders in their category make it to the annual report. The list, which covers 4 main categories, recognizes the expertise of around 700 companies across 65 subcategories. This year, as a new addition to the annual report, the Clutch 1000 will be announced to recognize the top companies with the highest scores on deliverability.

The Clutch Global Leader title is not easy to achieve. The scores are based on several criteria, including verified reviews, the company's client portfolio, the range of services offered and the experience in these services, and the company's visibility and reputation in the market. Clients' opinions play a significant role in the selection of the Clutch Global Leaders.
