Benjamin Alderson is a Senior Area Manager for deVere Group, an international financial products consultancy group. Benjamin Alderson advises international investors about financial products that will fulfill their long-term investment goals in planning for their retirement.

Those who have amassed large sums of money often demonstrate similar spending habits to increase their ability to save; this habit translates into fatter retirement funds that make the transition into retirement more successful. Successful savers follow the same practices:

1. Be frugal in everyday expenses. Take your lunch to work and eat lower cost supper meals.

2. Invest in the stock market and leave the money there. Do not sell stocks in the hopes of finding a
better return on investment, instead ride the market for decades.

3. Don’t buy the newest and best. If you can make a television last, don’t buy a bigger screen or a newer model just because it’s a hot trend. Make a purchase into an investment, not a disposable object. Purchases over $500 should last at least ten years.

4. Hire a trusted financial consultant to manage your funds. Give them the opportunity to increase your wealth while you continue to save.

Benjamin Alderson currently serves as deVere USA Inc.’s senior area manager. When he is not working, Benjamin Alderson enjoys keeping up with his favorite soccer team, the Liverpool Football Club. Liverpool was recently announced as the official partner for this year’s Pro Evolution Soccer video game, PES 2017.

Konami’s PES series has been going strong since 2001 when the first Pro Evolution Soccer game was released. While Konami had been releasing soccer games since 1995, this was the first with the PES name.

Now a mainstay series for footie fans, the PES series releases a new game every year. The 2017 entry’s exclusive deal with Liverpool means a much more faithful and authentic representation of the team and their famous Anfield stadium than seen in previous entries. The deal gives the game makers exclusive club access that will allow them to gather details and information they otherwise would not have been able to.

Despite the exclusive deal, the Liverpool team and Anfield Stadium will also appear in Pro Evolution Soccer’s main competitor, FIFA 17, as their parent company EA Sports is partnered with the entire Premier League.

Diana Ross and Lionel Richie’s Endless Love Turns 35

Benjamin Alderson works as the senior area manager for deVere USA Inc., one of the world’s largest independent financial consultancy groups. Outside of work, one of Benjamin Alderson’s favorite musicians is Lionel Richie. One of Richie’s most iconic songs, Endless Love, turns 35 this year.

Lionel Richie’s original claim to fame was in fronting the Motown legends, The Commodores. Around the same time, another prolific Motown-era group, The Supremes, was led by hit-maker Diana Ross. When the two came together for a duet, Endless Love marked almost opposite points in each of their careers.

For Lionel Richie, the 1981 hit marked his first number 1 song as a solo artist. Conversely, it also marked the last of Diana Ross’ number 1 hits, at least until the present time.

The song, which Billboard hailed as the greatest duet of all time, spent nine weeks at the top of Billboard’s Hot 100, before it was eventually overtaken by Christopher Cross’ Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do).
