Whether you’re a business owner with a few employees, an entrepreneur or working a traditional 9 to 5, make retirement planning a priority now. Use these strategies to get you in the fast lane to retirement!

Define Your Goals- Write out what you want to accomplish financially in retirement. Here are a few examples:

• Increase wealth through investments. • Improve lifestyle.
• Not running out of money.

Calculate Expenses- You’ll still need to live! List out your expenses, including:

• Living Expenses
• Debt Payments
• Insurance/Healthcare
• Taxes
• Hobbies/Travel
• Children/Grandchildren

Create Your Plan- Determine how many years you have to accomplish your goals. Create your retirement budget that includes income and expenses. Be sure to:

• Factor in non-investment income like social security, pensions and real estate holdings. • Estimate investment income sources like stock dividends and bonds.

Making Money in Retirement

Purchase an Investment Property

• Buy a home before retirement and rent it out to help with your mortgage.

• Cash flow can increase when the home is paid off in retirement.

Downsize From Your Current Home

• Evaluate the cost of a potential move and determine if it’s profitable.
