And the structure becomes more complexion -- grow with it.
A lot of people wait too long and then they they're kind of scramble -- did you see it means when you turn fifty say you really should start thinking about something like this even there even be that -- and even earlier because again you never know when you when something unexpected may happen -- -- you have the that the plan inflation aren't good thing for people start thinking about -- -- thing after much good to have you on today and.
