Make your next 50 your best 50 and live an “Inspired Retirement”

How much thought have you put into what retirement could look like for you?

Every successful journey starts with a plan

If you wanted to drive to a new destination, would you put the destination into your Google Maps app and let it guide you there, or would you pull out of your driveway and hope to find it eventually?

By allocating time now to consider what you want your retirement to be, you’ll give yourself a better chance of achieving those goals, particular if you have ten or twenty years more before you retire.

What should we be aiming for as we move towards retirement?

When retirement came into being, it was a refuge for older workers from the backbreaking physical labour that was unsustainable past a certain age, and to make way for the younger generation.yo

Now, few of us work in such physical occupations, making continued employment in some capacity past the legal retirement age not only possible, but an excellent option for keeping us happy and healthy.

How much money will we need to retire?

Returns on share portfolios, investment properties and superannuation funds are varying more than ever due to global economic and political volatility.

Other factors include the needs of our ageing parents who are living longer than anticipated and our children who are staying at home longer due to higher housing prices and career uncertainties.

The rules might be changing but the fundamentals are the same.

Regardless of what the forecast returns are or how much retirement savings you have , you need to have some idea of what retirement will look like for you, which is where “Real Life Retirement Coaching” beomes imperative.
