About Chris Vaca

I was born and raised in New York City, but now live in Florida. After losing my mortgage business at age 57, I found the courage to reinvent myself, now at age 63, I enjoy being An Entrepreneur, Public Speaker, Trainer and Author, as well as having a series of videos on YouTube called Over 50 And Broke and a web-site with the same name, All my books are listed on Amazon,


  1. So true Chris. Some of the problems that “society” has brought on is relativism–the belief their no such thing as a eternal right or wrong, no Truth.

    The second thing is kids without dads. I grew up this way and struggled as TV became my role model (let your imagination run wild)

    I like traditional values, so did our country about 50 years ago…things have changed.

    Nice article.

    • Robert, both you & Chris have given vaild points that I can agree with. However, being an old grey headed woman, I do enjoy the last word…I would suggest that the breakdown of the traditional family units is the begining of the breakdown of society itself. In the ’70’s divorce was almost vogue & we went to a ‘if it feels good do it’ period. Moral decay ran rampant! Fortunately it must not have felt too good to me so didn’t last long. I was the single mother of 3,often worked 2 jobs, still, we went camping at least once a month,where we would take ‘learning tours’ & share what we’d learned around the fire. We ate dinner together & even the ‘little one’ shared his day. I taught them behaviour & manners as I had been taught. ( no way they always came through for me in public) They learned values.
      They learned to ‘think’ Not to indicate that all is pollyannish, far from it. That learning to think thing has backfired more than once & currently has my oldest son & his Masters Degree & I enstranged over politics. Guess who is the more conservative? Don’t ya just luv this site!

      • Jan congrats to you, you must be a proud MaMa.
        I myself believe in traditional values, the decline of the traditional family is a big reason why society is falling. I myself was whacked on the bottom a few times growing up.
        It taught me a few lessons.
        Another good one Chris.

    • Rob, I hope you watched Father Knows Best or Leave It To Beaver. I don’t think these reality shows today set a good example.
