How to Navigate Inflation & Ways to Retire

How to Navigate Inflation & Ways to Retire  – Episode 4

Inflation is here, and it’s here to stay. There are some that estimate that the inflation rate greatly increased in the last year, and this (unsurprisingly) has some pretty big effects on our financial plan.

In today’s episode, after answering a question about ways to retire, we’re talking all about strategies to help protect your finances against inflation. We’re covering what inflation is, investments to consider avoiding right now, potential changes in interest rates on the horizon, and strategies you should consider as you navigate what’s ahead.

Most important when it comes to this topic is the value of having a plan. We hope you find today’s show valuable!



Key Takeaways: 

1) Retiring is more about consistent income than a certain sum of money. When we chat with people about retirement, we are much more interested in ensuring that someone’s expenses in retirement will never surpass their income. What that looks like is different for everyone.

2) You want to make sure your income and investments are growing at least at the rate of inflation. As inflation rises, the value of our dollars gradually decreases. If you have dollars just sitting somewhere, those dollars are decreasing in value. This is why it’s important to have a plan for how your dollars can work for you, keeping up with inflation.

3) Before you get involved in other sources of income, make sure you have the 3 T’s: Time, Temperament, and Talent. People will often ask us if they should get involved in real estate or other types of investments, and this is always our response. You should only take that step if you can say you have the time to give, the temperament to navigate the ups and downs, and the talent to do it well.
