Mistakes You Don’t Want To Make If You Want To Retire Early And Stay Retired

LLR_Ep033_ALT Featured

Over the next few weeks, I’m talking all about retirement–what you can do to keep yourself safe, growing, moving forward, and protecting yourself and your family.

Today, I’m covering the mistakes.

I am now financially free. I work not because I have to, but because I want to. 

However, I realized years ago that freedom comes at a cost. That cost becomes exponentially greater if you don’t master this part of your life early. 

I want you to master this. I want financial freedom for you, too. That’s why I’m giving you strategies that will walk you through the steps toward retirement.

It all starts with having a plan. The biggest mistake you can make is having no plan. If you don’t make one, someone else will make it for you. 

All of the other mistakes come back to that central one. But they’re also all big mistakes. You need to make sure you’ve assessed them all. Listen in to hear what each one is and how to avoid it. 

In this episode, you will hear:

  • What financial freedom means to me and how I got there.
  • What goes into a retirement plan.
  • The mistakes people make when saving for retirement.
  • Why you can’t rely on pension plans.
  • Three things that are killer when it comes to healthcare costs in retirement.
  • How to figure out the right way and at what level to invest.
