Episode 386: Retirement starts with the dream

1 Simple Thing Action:
The dream is the vital jumping off point for retirement. We all have dreams of what retirement will look like. Do you want to travel, spend time with the grandkids, or volunteer in your community? It’s those dreams that will give you a goal to reach and work towards. If you are married, sit down with your spouse and have the “dream meeting.” Don’t poke holes in each other’s dream by saying, “You can’t do that,” or “That’s too big.” Talk about the things you have in common, and then identify what it’s going to take to get there. See your reality, identify your dream, and start to work by budgeting – understanding where your money needs to go to help you create the best for your future.

Episode 387: Retirement isn’t an age, it’s a number

1 Simple Thing Action:
Realize that retirement is not an age. It’s never too early or too late to begin saving for retirement. You have to figure out your financial number. Do your R:IQ. Get an understanding of how much money you are going to need to live that dream. And having that understanding will allow us to move forward much more intentionally and with a purpose for our future.

Episode 388: Avoiding retirement obstacles

1 Simple Thing Action:
Be aware of the retirement issues you could face: Misunderstanding retirement. Depending on social security. Acting like a sheep. Not having a plan. Don’t have an attitude of denial and avoid these obstacles. Instead, put together a plan of attack to overcome them.

Episode 389: Enemy Number One of Your Retirement

1 Simple Thing Action:
You must take the time to create a budget, get out of debt, save for emergencies, and invest for the future.
