Money is the route of all happiness. OK, a little tongue and cheek there, but the reality is, you’ve worked hard for your money. It didn’t just fall into your lap. Therefore, our emphasis when it deals with your money is a focus on how you can reduce your taxes now and into the future – especially, by the time you retire. Secondly, we look at what constitutes your retirement income. Social Security, maybe a pension, investment income, or even fixed income. All these add up to what you can expect to receive as retirement income. Then compare that to your minimum needed income. That will equal either a surplus or a shortfall. Once those are in place and we know where you stand financially for income; then we can then talk about investments and how they compare to your investment risk profile. Many people we see are taking on far too much risk compared to their investment return needed to sustain their retirement lifestyle. For example, one may find that they have a medium risk tolerance, but plenty of income to sustain their lifestyle – so why take that much risk?
These are the questions that unfold when you follow a full retirement planning tool like our Red Blue Green concepts. Investments are important, but hopefully now you can see why we must cover the other areas first.

Health is a direct derivative of how we live our lives.
