TOOLS TO HELP YOU PLAN FOR YOUR RETIREMENT
When setting your retirement goal, you should:
- Focus on what you can control—how much to save and where to invest it.
- Create a plan so you can track your progress.
- Monitor your plan and adjust as necessary.
Begin by considering the lifestyle you envision in retirement. Most experts say you’ll need roughly 70% to 80% of your current annual income to live comfortably. This could include sources such as Social Security, but it’s probably wise to conclude that your personal savings will provide your primary source of income.

December 28, 2019 – Wealth Strategy with Bryan Rigg, Your Wealth Professor
Today, we’re going to talk about three different things. We’ll start the show with what people should do at the end of the year in regards to their finances. Bryan gives some tips on how to hold yourself more accountable to meet the deadline so you can just think about the family and not finances over the holidays. But Bryan will also give advice on what to do if the deadline has passed.
Then, Barbara Freeman joins the show once again to discuss her nonprofit organization, Freeman House (Freemanhouse.org). Freeman House has been serving the Dallas/Fort Worth area by providing transitional housing for men and women who are coming out of incarceration, recovering from addictions, and escaping homelessness since 2006. A house manager also joins the show to give her testimony to the nonprofit organization and the services they provide.
We’re going to close out the show with Bryan introducing his most recent book “Flamethrower”, which is now available on Amazon.com. According to some historians that proofread the book, “Flamethrower” is the most definitive work on an enlisted marine’s life during World War II.
