When was the last time you did something perfectly the first time? It doesn’t happen often because most things in life require trial and error. When it comes to retirement, you have only one chance to get it right.
Many people approach retirement from a purely financial perspective; they don’t consider how they want to spend their days (and their money) or what a standard week will look like. At Carver Financial, we believe investments are only a means to suit your lifestyle. We help you plan your perfect vision of retirement.
At least one in five people spend more time planning their vacations than they do their retirement. We encourage you to make retirement planning a priority because it’s something you do only once. Although you can always plan another vacation, you get just one chance to have a comfortable retirement.
It takes careful planning to determine when and where you want to go once you retire, the activities you want to do and how much to budget. Because you don’t get a second chance to get it right, it can seem daunting and complicated without a guide.
According to The Wall Street Journal, roughly 15 percent of retirees find it hard to adapt to their new way of life. Experts say planning ahead may be the solution. My team and I couldn’t agree more.
Our experts often serve as life advisors, not just financial advisors. Using our Proprietary Personal Vision Planning® process, we help you achieve your perfect vision of retirement with meticulous planning so you can enjoy your time to the fullest.
Our goal is to set you up for retirement success, whatever that looks like. Many financial advisors take an investment-centric approach to retirement. They evaluate your portfolio, your spending habits and more to determine what your retirement can look like. We take a different approach.
We say all the time, “There’s more to retirement than finances.” We want to understand your vision for retirement — what you want to do and how you’ll spend your time — and then develop a personal plan with you for achieving it. We spend time with you to discern your goals and how we will meet them financially, which is an investment that pays off.
No matter your retirement goals, we’re here to support you, whether you are a Carver Financial client or not. My book, Ultimate Vacation: The Definitive Guide to Living Well Today and Retiring Well Tomorrow, is a planning tool that helps you make big retirement-planning decisions with small steps. You can use this road map on your own or with a trusted advisor on our team.
