Many people try putting together a retirement income plan without really thinking about where they need to end up; consequently, they often don’t have an appropriate strategy to get there. Some approach their retirement planning in much the same way as Alice from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, approached the Cheshire Cat to determine where she should go. “Would you tell me, please, which route I ought to go from here?” “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat. “I don’t much care where,” said Alice. “Then it doesn’t matter which way you walk,” said the Cat.
The first thing I ask my clients is this, “Tell me, why are you here today?” Pretty simple question isn’t it? But, like a Doctor, I can’t be much help unless I know what financially ails you. Once we had a dream and then life came along! Our vision for our future may have become blurred. We all lived our lives and did the best we could. Some have even lost sight of their dreams. What is it you want to achieve? What is realistic, and what is not? Work with someone that can lead you through the process of examining your needs, wants and desires in retirement and unlike Alice, develop a roadmap you can follow to give you the peace of mind you are searching for. With 10,000 people a day turning 65 you may feel like you are moving around a lot but not moving forward. Allow me to help you plan the longest vacation of your life, RETIREMENT!
