In case you missed it, I was a guest on the popular Personal Finance Hour hosted by Jim from Bargaineering and J.D. Roth over at Get Rich Slowly. Each Monday they spend an hour discussing a finance topic, chat with listeners, and take calls to answer questions. This week the topic was retirement. Given my background in retirement planning it was a good fit to have me on and discuss some of the common retirement planning mistakes and considerations for both the young and old alike.
While you may have missed the live show you can still play the episode at any time. You can find it on the Blog Talk Radio site, iTunes, or even use the embedded widget found on this page. Some of the highlights from the show talked about the biggest mistakes people make when it comes to saving for retirement. I say the biggest mistake is simply not saving enough. People often underestimate how much they really need to save or wait too long to start saving. It’s one of those things where time can either be your greatest asset or your biggest enemy. Use the time you have wisely and save appropriately and you’ll be in good shape. Let time slip away and you can’t get it back and it’s very hard to catch up.
So, if you’re interested in retirement planning this is a good episode to listen to. And of course, be sure to tune in every Monday as there are always good topics up for discussion on the Personal Finance Hour.
