Make Your Money Matter

Jan 7, 2022

There’s a popular retirement ad that asks retirees what their retirement “number” is. This approach to retirement makes sense — and it’s generally better to have more savings than less. 

But that isn’t always the case. There’s something more important than your savings. And that’s how much income you make from your savings. 

In this episode, you’ll discover why setting a retirement income goal helps you enjoy your retirement while a savings goal makes you worry you’ll run out of money. 

Listen to the episode now so you can live your retirement to the fullest.
