Create a Portfolio
We all look forward to retirement. We look forward to traveling and maybe some rest and relaxation, but are you taking the right steps in saving for your retirement?

Nancy Tengler from Arizona Bank & Trust and author of "The Women's Guide to Successful Investing," gives us tips on to how to create a portfolio. This way you're ready to retire early.

Know Your Risk - When it comes to Asset Allocation which employs an allocation to stocks and bonds or cash equivalents. This is impacted by how long we have to invest and our ultimate goal. 

Think ETFs - If just getting started which are Exchange-traded funds which tracks an index (sector, geography, commodity, etc.). This is great for the small investor who can do this by opening an account with TD Ameritrade or Charles Schwab with just a few hundred dollars.  

Leave it Alone  Let it Grow - When you adjust your asset allocation based on market moves this ultimately detracts from your total return.

Five Stock Portfolio Plan for those who have more to invest: Buy companies from at least five of the ten economic sectors which can be found with a simple internet search. I recommended five industry leaders in April of 2003 and measured the performance through April of 2013. Two of the five stocks dramatically outperformed the market, two dramatically underperformed and one slightly underperformed. Still my total return over the ten-years was 249.7% versus 109.4% for the market. And that included 2008. Buying and holding great companies just like the indices makes good sense.

Back to the Dinner Party - Think of it like this. You're hosting a dinner party. Before you compile the invite list you have to consider the size of the dinner table. This is also true with investing. If you have $500 your investment strategy will be more similar to the first example I provided. If you have $50,000 you may decide to buy individual stocks. Buy what you know. As your table grows, increase your invitation list you get the idea.

Baby Health
From stuffy noses to diaper rashes, baby health woes are not fun for you or your little one. Dr. Jodi Root, pediatrician from AllKids Urgent Care, shares a list of over-the-counter products for baby:  
            
Babies can often suffer from respiratory problems, so a humidifier can help open up the nose and throat.  
            
Babies cannot blow their nose, so moistening the nostrils with saline spray and extracting the mucus with a nasal aspirator can make them a little more comfortable.  
            
For fever and pain relief, make sure you are using infant acetaminophen and check with your doctor on the dosage. 
            
Colic, gas and acid reflux can all be alleviated with gripe water. which is made with sodium bicarbonate dill and fennel extract.
            
To replace electrolytes after diarrhea or vomiting, doctors often recommend Pedialite.
            
Diaper rashes can cause discomfort, so creating a barrier to the skin with a zinc oxide cream such as Desitin usually helps.
            
Dry skin especially here in the desert can be prevented with coconut oil or specially formulated lotions.
 
A thermal thermometer will allow for a quick and accurate temperature reading.
