May 20, 2022

Retirement is one of life’s most significant transitions because everything changes. Your career likely gives you connection to relationships, meaningful work, a steady paycheck, and a structure to follow. You can give peace of mind to your clients by helping them find purpose in life post retirement and providing guidance so that they don’t fear running out of money. Lauren Minch interviews Oscar Vives, CPA/PFS. They discuss:

  • What having a greater purpose in life can help clients avoid
  • The top 2 regrets of the dying that can guide how clients live now
  • The history of the 4% rule and whether it makes sense to rely on this with your clients
  • Balancing the risk of overspending and underspending
