Don’t Leave Your Fate in the Hands of Uncle Sam or the Wolves of Wall Street, Says Financial Advisor
Just about everyone has a dream about who they really want to be: a professional athlete, the next great American novelist, a celebrated fashion designer, a beloved philanthropist. Sadly, many of us do not realize that dream in our lifetimes.
But you have a real shot of making at least some of your dreams come true in retirement, says Andrew McNair, a money expert who realized his dream of helping others with their finances at a young age.
“I started my radio show at 22; I was always good with numbers and I was blessed with the opportunity to apply my passion while young, but not everyone is so lucky,” says McNair, founder and CEO of SWAN Capital, (www.SWAN-Capital.com), and author of “Don’t be Penny Wise & Dollar Foolish.”
“With so many baby boomers retiring – 10,000 every day, according to Pew Research – we are at a point in history where an unprecedented number of individuals may really begin realizing their dreams.”
It’s not unheard of, for instance, to become a professional golfer in middle age or later, McNair points out, but it can’t happen if you have to spend time in low-level jobs to make ends meet in retirement.
McNair offers tips on how to achieve financial independence in retirement.
“For most people, financial planning does not come naturally but neither does performing surgery on yourself! Do your research or seek trusted counsel,” McNair says. “This is the first step to attaining your dream while in retirement.”
