On Being Prepared
“…let’s just take an inventory, and you can keep doing your own thing, but someone should know what’s going on. And so for those that don’t want to hire an advisor because they handle it themselves, no problem. But you should have your own succession plan, so to speak – that’s what the experts, so-called experts tell us. As advisors, we should have a succession plan. If we get hit by the proverbial bus, our clients need to be taken care of. And Do It Yourself investors need to view that the same way. So the same goes here – get your estate documents in order, make sure your wills, your powers of attorney are in order. Have a plan for long-term care. If you go into a long-term care facility and you can’t manage your finances or your spouse goes in, it’s very expensive. Just think about all those potential things that could happen, especially if you’re trying to manage all this yourself.”
On Investing Time Wisely
“Some folks I’ve talked to, they don’t even like using the word retirement because it has this negative connotation that it’s all downhill from here. But just because we stop working, doing what you’ve done for the past 30 years, doesn’t mean you have to slow down. There’s still a lot of time to get stuff done. And I think the second thing that the happiest people do is they do not listen to the news, watch the news. They don’t open their stock app every day. They don’t pay attention to the media, the financial media. At least they don’t look at their accounts every day.”
On Assessing If You Can Retire Financially
“And the sad thing is, Joe, I’ve seen where people have come in, they have been stressed, they’ve been working away. Let’s say they’re 67, 68 years old and they just didn’t know they could retire. And we do a financial plan and we know they could have retired five years ago. But that’s typically the worst outcome – when people have worked longer than they really needed to in a job they really don’t like.”
About Retirement Wisdom
This retirement podcast is about the non-financial side of preparing for retirement – and living life on your own terms.
Planning for retirement goes well beyond your 401k or IRA. How will you invest your time after your full-time working years?
You’ll need another portfolio.
I help people create an active multipurpose retirement, with the right mix of interests, activities and pursuits to invest your time wisely. And for many, like me, it includes a new version of work – redefined on your own terms.
