wHY iT mATTERS

Retirees don’t live on Assets, they live on Income. Let’s face it, Income drives EVERYTHING. If you don’t know where your income streams are going to come from or how much income you will want/need, Retirement is going to be a very rocky road (and NOT the ice-cream kind).

It is important to figure out your sources of Income. These are needed to cover your Basic Living Expenses. Everything else needs to be Saved or Invested with the Goal of overcoming the effects of Inflation and to provide for Future Income.
