First You Get Bored, Then You Become... Boring?
The idea of not working is hard to think about. Since the age of five, or even earlier, we have been going to school, and as soon as we are out of school we are looking for work and working. Whether you work in an office, outdoors, or as a stay-at-home parent, you are always working. So, what do you do when you leave work and the kids are grown?
Imagine you are 30 years old. You are at a new job and working frantically to work your way up the ladder. You stay in the office from dawn to dusk, trying to get ahead. You come home to screaming children and then, seemingly before your head hits the pillow, you are back at the office with a pile of work on your desk. You need a break. You need a vacation. Where would you go? What would you do?
When you think about it, retirement is not the end of the road; it is merely the beginning. For the first time in your life, the work is done, and you can relax. You can take time for you. This is what you have worked for your whole life. This is why you stayed late at work, why you took extra shifts, why you came home exhausted.
Retirement is not a punishment, rather it is a reward
After all your hard work you deserve a break. You deserve to focus on you and the things you want to do. Retirement is the time to start living.
A retirement where you can enjoy your time and spend it doing what you love sounds great in theory, but how do you get to that point?
Retirement planning. That doesn’t sound like much fun. But when you think about it, planning for your future and the chance to live the life you’ve always wanted is great fun.

First you get bored, then you become…boring? WRONG.
Our plan is for you not to have a boring retirement. People who say retirement is boring did not retire correctly. Perhaps at first, you may get bored since you will have more time than ever before, but then you will not become boring. You will find a new hobby, perhaps volunteer work, a part time job doing something you love, or helping others. You will have the opportunity to do something you’ve always wanted to do. You will be able to do it because after planning with Financial Strategies, Inc., you will finally have the time and the money. With our help, you will find your financial freedom, and that is exciting.
