I can’t stand it.

My industry sells the idea of working until your 60’s before you can enjoy your hard-earned money.

Who benefits from this?

The financial institutions (i.e. banks, insurance and investment firms) do because it’s what makes them profitable:

1. They want your money.

2. They want it on a systematic basis.

3. They want to keep it for as long as possible.

4. They want to dribble it back to you slowly as possible.

Operating under these four principles is what makes them a TON of money.

The truth of the matter is what’s good for financial institutions is not necessarily what’s good for you.

We need to cut out the noise my industry tries to sell and focus on how to make our financial lives profitable and fulfilling.
