Show Notes:

  1. Good Reads-

Natalie highly recommends reading Chris Hogan’s Book: (My Amazon Affiliate Link) Retire Inspired: It’s Not an Age, It’s a Financial Number


2. Get Real, Know What You Need-

To calculate your retirement goals, Natalie recommends using a Retirement Calculator like this one from CNN Money.  

3. If you don’t have tons of assets, you can still get help with your investments!  Natalie recommends The XY Planning Network because they don’t have any minimum requirements.  Check them out.  She highly recommends getting assistance from a FEE ONLY advisor instead of a commission based planner.


We hope today’s show gave you lots of insight and courage to go after your retirement savings no matter where you are in life!  Be sure to check out Natalie’s awesome blog: Finance Girl!
