Retired and Free

Feb 21 2018 12 mins 3

Retired + Free is an eye-opening and innovative retirement show Hosted by #1 Best Selling Author and Financial Professional, Pedro Adao. The goal of this show is to share with you The Unconventional Path to Financial Certainty and Fulfillment. In this Podcast, Pedro will share uncommon concepts and strategies for “having it all” in retirement. In this fresh and comprehensive approach to thinking about your life in retirement, you will be exposed to transformative information from thought leaders and experts in the most important areas of life. Retirement is not merely a financial event. Therefore, “having it all” in retirement will require much more than having a financial plan. It will require a plan for having health and energy in your body, positive mental and healthy emotional well-being, a plan for meaningful relationships with family and friends, as well as a part for feeling connected to your purpose and spirituality. If you are looking to be connected to a community of purpose-filled people who don’t see retirement as the finish line, but rather as a new starting line to a life of purpose and meaning then you are in the right place.

Ep 002 - Do You Have Holes in Your Buckets? • In this episode, Pedro aims to help simplify complex financial questions and educate you as a consumer • The bucket analogy: • Most people have been saving money in retirement accounts or buckets • Most don’t realize that their buckets often have holes in the bottom • Pedro explains there are three major holes he has come across in his experience working with clients: risk, fees and taxes • Risk: the stock market is at an all-time high • Crucial to assess how much risk is present in your bucket • Fees: most people do not know how much they are paying in fees • Understanding how much fees you are actually paying is critically important to knowing how much money is going in and out of your retirement bucket • Taxes: when it is time to pull money out, Uncle Same will be there waiting • Pedro’s goal is to help reduce, eliminate or mitigate those holes in the retirement bucket to save your money. • Homework: “to what extent do you think you are exposed to the three holes in the bucket we talked about today—risk, fees, and taxes? Is it time to get a new bucket?” OUTLINE OF THIS EPISODE OF RETIRED + FREE • [ 1:08] The Bucket Metaphor • [ 3:22] The Problem with Our Industry • [ 3:55] The Holes in Your Bucket • [ 4:20] Risk • [ 5:43] Fees • [7:24] Taxes • [9:20] Homework Thanks for listening to the show!
