What’s your number?

You might have noticed that I’ve recently talked quite a bit about inflation, and that’s because I know firsthand how big of an impact it can have on your lifestyle in retirement. But, one thing I haven’t mentioned is that everybody has their own personal inflation rate.  Yep - you read that correctly. Our [...]

You’ve been had – now what?

You’ve seen the emails: A Nigerian prince that selected you specifically to help him get back home with the promise of untold riches. A lawyer for that great-great-great uncle you’ve never heard of telling you that you are the sole beneficiary to his vast, vast, vast estate.  We’ve come to expect and often even [...]

Serenity now?

Although we like to think of ourselves as being totally logical when we’re making decisions (you know, after hours of painstaking effort and thorough research), the evidence points to the majority of us being shockingly emotional in our decision-making. Sometimes this is relatively harmless - like spontaneously taking a day off from a stressful [...]

Go, Greased Lightning!

Imagine this: You’re driving down Main Street on the way to work, and you pass the same old car dealership - only this time, something catches your eye. “Oh my goodness, it’s the new (your favorite car)! I’ve been eyeing one of those since high school! I could afford one of those right now, [...]

“When pigs… swim?!”

Summer is coming to an end quickly in the U.S., but it feels like the season is endless in the Caribbean.  A trip to the Caribbean wouldn’t be complete without a sandy beach to lay on, a beautiful hotel where you can kick up your heels and rest, and a tropical drink in hand [...]

Cutting your pay every year.

I'm curious. Would you accept a job if you knew your employer would cut your pay every single year? I can't imagine anyone saying yes.  But - that's exactly what you're doing if you don't have a retirement plan that considers inflation when determining your income needs.
