Retire, Have Money, Will Travel: The S.M.A.R.T. Way to It All!! By Shyam Amladi

Really!

Well, first of all, the good news. Like those other obnoxious things like death and taxes, the third "certain" thing in life, i.e. retirement is actually a pleasant thing to happen to us.

Now, the not-so-pleasant. It takes planning to retire comfortably. Otherwise you may end up looking like the sourpuss below.

 

I am sure you are reading or have read many,  many books and articles on how to plan for retirement.

I have a rather simple device I use. It is called "S.M.A.R.T." way to retire.

What is SMART?

S is for saving

M is for managing your expenditures

A is for accumulating useful assets

R is for reducing debt

and finally

T is for tracking your yields.

 

See--no reading tomes, attending those 'free-lunch" seminars and sitting endless hours with your financial planner--although I do advise you to have a financial planner (fee based, not a broker for products).

 

You see, once you retire comfortably, you will see that the other two will follow naturally.

 

So:

Be  S.M.A.R.T.
