I’m Sharon Hill, and I am delighted to present my new blog, Senior Wellth, where I will focus on topics important to boomers and seniors, in Arizona as well as other parts of the U.S. We’ll talk about Medicare Supplements, Medicare Advantage, final expense and other insurance, fitness, second careers, entrepreneurship, budget, creating your memoirs and retirement planning and choices.
A life & health agent, my primary focus is on your health and well-being, and the peace of mind that comes with knowing your family will be able to honor your life at your passing – not pay your debts. A veteran journalist on senior topics, long-time work-at-home entrepreneur, oral history buff, telework and business management author and writer, and former advertising and sales & marketing manager, I am a boomer myself.
