Retirement Ready - Creating a Custom Retirement Plan

6/7/2021
What does a true financial plan look like? What could be the most important components of a solid financial plan? What should you be looking for? Better yet – do you have a plan, or do you simply have investments? What we tend to find is that most people think they have a plan, but when we break it down and examine it, they have an “analysis,” or a “report,” or some computer-generated system take your personal information and generated a generic, algorithmic result. It’s usually not personal...

Retirement Ready - 4 Methods to Help Create a Retirement Income Stream

5/24/2021
Income in retirement is a big deal. You’ve left the workforce finally, and you’ve left behind the paycheck you used to get with your job. And while you’ll likely have a Social Security check and/or pension check to fall back on, it’s probably not going to cover all your bills. And that’s precisely why you’ve saved some money over the years, isn’t it? To supplement the income, you could earn in retirement with the income you will need to support your life? It should be! In this episode, we’re...

Retirement Ready - Protecting Yourself from Bad Retirement Advice

5/17/2021
The studies and data are clear; most Americans are declining guidance from financial planners and financial advisors than ever before. According to a CNBC and Acorns Invest in You Savings Survey, 75 percent of Americans are managing their own finances.

Retirement Ready - Active vs. Passive Investing

5/10/2021
The debate over whether you should invest in the stock market in an active way or a passive way has been going on for many years.

And as we go along in this episode, of course we’ll explain the difference between the two styles, and the pros and cons of each. However, which...

Retirement Ready - Help Simplify Your Retirement Plan

We tend to like when things are simple. Maybe it’s the sense of relief you get from the simplicity, or just how easy it makes things seem, but when things are simple, they just seem better. And if you are a pre-retiree or already retired, you probably like things simple. Your investment approach or retirement plan should be simple, too. If only it were that easy! After a lifetime of saving, stashing money away, and positioning, you could have an unorganized mess on your hands. Worse yet, you...

Retirement Ready - Retirement FAQs

You’ve heard of the FAQ. Most instructional manuals or tutorials have them. The most frequently asked questions on a topic.

So, if retirement had a manual (which it doesn’t by the way!) then we would look into the FAQ section of that manual to find some of these questions and the answers. Retirement is about more than your working career ending or changing. It’s...
