Update 8/3/2020: We are changing the format of the show. Stay tuned. We will still be releasing at least monthly but you are going to LOVE what's coming!! (Also if you added a comment here earlier, we had a computer blip that affected this post. It wasn't you, it was us. Sorry about that).
The episode below replaces what I originally wrote. Please listen to it. It explains our new format that we created after I wrote the info below.
Prior to recording this, I wrote the post below:
I wanted to let you know what the future is for the Rock Your Retirement Show.
If you have listened to the episode where I discussed my traumatic event, you’ll remember that I’m re-evaluating my life. This event was life-changing for me. If you haven’t listened to the episode, and you are interested, just go to Episode 209.
Since this traumatic event, I decided I wanted to scale back on some of my workload. I have already announced to my remaining financial planning clients that I’ll be retiring from financial planning on 12/31/2020. Although I partially retired from financial planning in 2015, I continued to work with my favorite clients.
With Covid-19 affecting so many of our lives, I’ve had additional time to reflect. In my time of reflection, I have discovered that I need to make some further changes. And those changes affect the show.
Since 2016 I have been paying to host the show. Although I’ve added some advertising it has never supported the show. In fact, my affiliate link provider has indicated to me that I’m not getting enough click-throughs, so they want to start charging me as well! So, if I continue to run ads it will actually cost me money!!
It has been a tough choice however, I have decided that after we run all the shows we’ve already recorded, I’m going to take a break and we will stop doing our weekly episodes. It costs me about $150 per month to keep the show going, and my revenues are nowhere near that amount.
The only way I can continue on a regular basis is to get some listener support. You can support the show at a $3 per month basis if you’d like. If a small percentage of my listeners did this, then I will get the $150 I need to continue weekly episodes beyond 07/06/2020 when our last weekly interview is scheduled to be released.
Don’t worry though, even if I don’t get the support I need to continue on a regular basis, I’ll still pop in sporadically to tell you how I am doing. So, stay subscribed so you get the notifications.
In case you’re interested in supporting the show, here’s where you can do it: http://RockYourRetirement.com/Support
Your friendship over the last few years, and support of the show and me personally, means the world to me.

Hello, just found your podcast so hope you continue. This episode will not download to my podcast player (overcast) nor can I get it to play from your website. Good luck. Cathy
Thank you so much for the encouragement! I took the ability to download the episode connected to this post down, so if you weren’t one of the 300 or so people who already downloaded it, you’re out of luck. BUT, the good news is that I’ve found someone for my new project! We’ll be announcing that soon. It’s something I’m very excited about. We’ll be releasing new podcast episodes approximately monthly, and blog posts on the subject weekly. Please stay tuned!!
