We all want to be happy. Why wouldn’t we? As an Investment Advisor, I help people recognize and work towards achieving their financial goals. I love it. But today I want to zoom out to the big picture; to discuss what every single person wants from retirement: happiness.
In the first episode of Retire Sooner, I talk a little about my upbringing and where my fascination between money and happiness began. Then dig into the research I did for my book, You Can Retire Sooner Than You Think, on the five secrets of the happiest retirees.
Studies mentioned in this episode:
- The five secrets are based on a study I conducted of over 1,350 retirees in 46 states for my book, You Can Retire Sooner Than You Think.
- Scary Retirement Statistics from Ramsey Solutions Retirement Study
- Retired adults dependence on Social Security
- Wharton study
