Does Retirement Planning Stress You Out?


Have you signed up for this week's webinar yet? You have three dates to choose from to see "How to Create a Simple Retirement Plan." To learn more, click here


One of my main concerns about hosting my webinar this week is that the subject matter can stress people out. As a result, it causes too much anxiety to learn more by attending the webinar. It is anxiety that keeps people stuck.


Here is the reality of that stress. In my 30 years of working with people, I find that this stress is created by the fact that they have no idea whether they can retire or not. They assume that if they try to figure out the answer, it will confirm their fears – they will work for the rest of their life. It is the fear of the unknown, which they could clear up by going through the process.


I can't tell you the number of times I have had an individual or someone come into my office for a meeting, and the first thing out of their mouth is, "there is no way that I can ever retire." I will ask, "how do you know?"- "I just know!"


The fact is they are letting stress rule the day by assuming that retirement will never be for them. I want to make a deal with you. Attend the webinar this week, and I might just alter your perception of how a retirement plan works.


Here is the reality that I find the majority of the time. There is a retirement plan for everyone in some form or fashion. It may not look like the perfect 5 vacations a year white picket fence retirement plan that Pop Culture Finance says should be your retirement. Retirement planning for most average people is far from shooting for perfection.


The perfect retirement plan is imperfect!

The imperfect retirement plan uses your strengths and weaknesses and creates the best plan given what you have to work with. We are not shooting for perfection here. Now, if you are willing to give the idea a chance, sign up today to register for the webinar and choose either the Wednesday option at 10 AM, the Thursday option at 11 AM, or the Friday option at noon.
