A New York Times article by Tara Siegel Bernard explores the challenges facing people who are retiring in today’s economy. Aside from the obvious suggestions that one needs to learn to make do on less and tracking income and expenses (something everyone knows to do and very, very few do), she does a nice job of highlighting the benefits of “life planning.”
She interviewed a number of financial planners for the story, including a colleague of mine, Robin Young, CFP , who practices in Londonderry, NH. If you pay close attention, you might even catch a few words from yours truly. You can read the whole story here.
