What is Diplocon?

Diplocon was founded to provide resources for people seeking jobs providing construction services to the Diplomatic Community. While continuing to do so, it has also evolved into a nexus for employment professionals and consultants, job seekers interested in employment OCONUS (Outside CONtinental United States) in any field, and people already OCONUS whether working in the diplomatic realm, construction, maintenance, and support of diplomatic facilities, or in other professions and roles.


The coming economic crash?


How many times have we heard predictions that the dollar is going to collapse, the US economy will fail, and therefore we wonder if planning for our financial future might be futile, so why bother? I remember hearing the same sort of stories in the 90’s. In fact, remember the Y2K Bug? Our financial system was supposed to collapse and we were all going to be living in a barter system in which there would be no banks or currency at all? No government, no infrastructure, real back to the Stone Age sort of stuff.

Well, we partied like it was 1999 and made it through that disaster (as it was portrayed before it failed to occur), and we will make it through the next, so maybe we had better consider that there just might be a future after all.

Wealth generation and financial planning are alive and well – they just may require a little more diligence and knowledge than at times in the past before the easy money dot coms became dot bombs, and then the real estate bubble burst and wiped away a boatload of wealth seemingly overnight.

Americans working overseas usually have more investible income than the folks back in the US so need to be watchful for places to put their money to grow it and protect it.

Ric Edelman’s No Nonsense System for Building Wealth is an easy to understand, easy to use program that has helped this Diplocon Consultant implement automatic investment and retirement funding, and protect his financial future.

As in any area of life, you need to have goals and targets for your finances. You need to be able to monitor results and know if and when to make a move with your money (actually, a lot less often than many so-called financial experts would lead you to believe).

Edelman will help you understand mutual funds, index funds, insurance, retirement planning and even such unthinkable – but absolutely necessary – things as long term care and estate planning. He may even help you get enthused about it all so you will do it for your own good and that of your family.

Click on the link below and look through the available programs and you’ll find Ric Edelman and plenty of other authors/presenters to get you on your way to financial security or progress in most any area of your life.

I challenge you to make the effort to live your life to the fullest while working in the wider world OCONUS.
