This week, we at the Green Bay News Network are taking the opportunity to introduce one of our members whom many of you may already know, Jim Genrich.
Jim has worked in the human services field, including mental health and medical health care, for 23 years. We asked Jim what he most likes about his work as administrator of McCormick Assisted Living:
"I most like knowing that I help to provide a safe and caring environment for our seniors in a setting that is very personal and homelike."
Jim points out that McCormick Assisted Living is not simply another CBRF (Community-based residential facility):
"Our work here is really mission-driven, as we represent the mission to seniors for our Green Bay Catholic Diocese. We are open and encouraging to all faiths, and strive to offer our services as affordably as possible."
While Jim is definitely a full-time presence at McCormick Assisted Living, he is also active as a public ambassador for the facility at various meetings, conferences, and workshops sponsored by the diocese and other area agencies and organizations. Though one would think this would keep Jim busy enough, he still finds time to dedicate to other areas of community and civic service:
"I currently serve as a Trustee on the Allouez Village Board, as well as the Allouez Public Works and Historic Preservation Committees, and formerly served on the Allouez Plan Commission. I also serve as President of the Allouez-Greater Green Bay Kiwanis, an organization that is committed to serving the needs of our community - primarily children. Additionally, I am Corporate Board President for Heritage Hill State Historical Park."
Jim and his wife, Karen, are blessed to be parents of three adult children, and are enjoying their five grandchildren, all of whom live here in our local community.
McCormick Assisted Living is located at 212 Iroquois Avenue, in Allouez. You can call and speak with Jim or any of his staff at 920-437-0883, and you can visit McCormick Assisted Living on the web, by clicking here. When you talk to Jim, please let him know you read this article in the Green Bay News Network!

This week, Craig Siminski, of Equity Design Group, shares with us an article he wrote describing his role and philosophy as a Certified Financial Planner Professional.
I am a big believer in working hard. I would want my financial planner to put an honest effort into helping me achieve my financial goals. More often than not, I notice in my prospects’ investment statements a few things that bother me. Typically, there is a good mix of equities and fixed income investments...including some mutual funds and exchanged-traded funds (etfs).
The problem is that the exact same investments are in the IRA, Roth IRA, and the non-retirement accounts; just in different percentages. I wouldn’t want a cookie cutter portfolio that was put together by my adviser’s back office based on my risk tolerance.
As an investor, I want to deal with the architect of my plan, not the salesman. I like investing in the great companies of this country and of the world. I really like investing in those same companies that pay a healthy dividend…and regularly raise that dividend. Investing in individual stocks allows me to see the price point that my clients and prospects can buy that security at. I’ve got software that allows me to get a pretty good sense of the fair market value of that particular stock.
The goal, after extensive research, is a price point less than 100 cents on the dollar, if possible. A fundamental of investing is to buy low and sell high. I haven’t seen software that puts a fair market value on a mutual fund.
I incorporate at least a sleeve of individual dividend paying stocks into most of my clients’ portfolios. My name is Craig Siminski. My job title is Certified Financial Planner Professional® and what I do is goal focused investment planning.
Craig is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, with over eighteen years of experience. His goal is to provide families, business owners, and their employees with assistance in building their financial freedom.
And...Remember to tell Craig the Green Bay News Network sent you!

Most people have good intentions about saving for retirement. But few know when they should start and how much they should save.
Unfortunately, more than 25% of workers have saved less than $10,000 for retirement. A better approach might be to allocate a certain amount for savings every month and pay yourself as though it were an expense.
Here’s a hypothetical example of the cost of waiting. Two friends, Chris and Leslie, want to start saving for retirement. Chris starts saving $275 a month right away and continues to do so for 10 years, after which he stops but lets his funds continue to accumulate. Leslie waits 10 years before starting to save, then starts saving the same amount on a monthly basis. Both their accounts earn a consistent 8% rate of return. After 20 years, each would have contributed a total of $33,000 for retirement.
However, Leslie, the procrastinator, would have accumulated a total of $50,646, less than half of what Chris, the early starter, would have accumulated...
