Ep. 7 – Retirement: Pay for it, Stay Healthy, & Avoid Negativity

Today, we’re going to cover three critical pillars for a long and happy retirement: paying for it, staying healthy, and avoiding negativity.


In this episode, you will learn:

  • Paying for your retirement is a process that, hopefully, you began early in your adult life. You want to start by creating a legacy budget, meaning you have to take a look at your life and consider the things that are important to you and how you will have to set your life up, financially, in order to have the retirement that you want. The earlier you do this, the less you will have to compromise.
  • How a certified financial planner will be able to help you with all of this.
  • The biggest change in retirement is that your focus needs to change from accumulating or saving money to taking care of your health. Because if you don’t have your health, it doesn’t matter how much money you have.
  • A lot of people spend their adult life in a saving mentality, but in retirement, you have to shift your focus from accumulating money to taking care of your health; you want to look at your savings as a way to pay yourself for all the work you’ve done up to now.
  • Obesity is where a lot of health problems start, and the older you are, the more likely it is to cause a problem.
  • You need to get up and move! Not only will it help you stay healthier, but it’ll also help you maintain your mental capacity as you face all of the challenges of retirement.
  • How we can help our loved ones through the grieving process that will take place after we’re gone.
