Traditional “Retirement Planning”Traditional “Retirement Planning”
A very expensive mistake that many people make is failing to
challenge the assumptions underlying traditional “retirement
planning” advice pedaled by the financial planning industry.
When strategies for retirement planning are
packaged and presented to us by our
financial advisor, we often take them as
conventional wisdom and fail to question the
interests that underly the advice being given
to us. We presume it is in our interest
because someone else in an ‘authority
position’ told us it was.
To ensure we do not become just another
sheep, we need to start independently
evaluating the advice we receive to
determine whose interest it really serves.
A Closer Look at theA Closer Look at the
Traditional Approach toTraditional Approach to
Retirement PlanningRetirement Planning
Let’s take a look at what the Traditional Approach tells
us to do:
•Work hard at your job
•Contribute to your employers 401k plan
•Diversify your portfolio
•Build up a “nest egg” so that you can retire at age 65
on less money than you make now
•Believe this is the only way and do not deviate from
the steps outlined above
Most people approach retirement with this method, but
few actually achieve it. And if you do achieve it, that
means you worked your whole life only to retire to a
downgraded lifestyle on less money than you make
now. Not very inspiring....and yet, most people pursue

NotNot Designed ForDesigned For YourYour BenefitBenefit
Why is the Traditional Approach to retirement
continually promoted to us? Well, let’s take a quick
look…Bankers, financial planners and the huge companies for whom they work are incentivized to sell you particular
financial products. These products are made to look as though they are for your benefit but take a closer look at
some of these concepts.
Bankers are incentivized to convince you to “save” money because the more money a bank has (paying you a low
interest rate), the more they can lend out to others (at a high interest rate) and make a profit on the margin.
STOCKS, MUTUAL FUNDS and YOUR EMPLOYER’S 401K PLAN:
Financial planners are sales people. Remember that. They typically get paid per trade or with an annual fee based
on the amount of money under management. They are financially incentivized to get as much of your money under
management as possible and to convince you to invest it in particular financial products. They usually make the
same amount of money whether your portfolio does well or poorly so their incentivize is NOT to make YOU money,
but simply to get you to save up and put more money under their management.
THE “NEST EGG” PHILOSOPHY
The idea of “building a nest egg” encourages you to give more and more money to these financial planners. This
“nest egg” philosophy basically means amassing a finite sum of money before you retire, and then hoping you die
before it runs out! Not very appealing to me....how about you?
The Myth of Diversifying YourThe Myth of Diversifying Your
Nothing says “diversifying” better than limited options…
Rarely will you see a financial planner
suggest investing in multiple asset
classes. When recommending that
you “diversify your portfolio“ they’ll
usually suggest that you chose
between the various mutual funds
and packages that their institution
offers, but you’ll be hard pressed to
find one that suggests that you buy
Why is that, you wonder?

opportunities that your financial advisor does NOT
want you to know about....

Creating Passive Residual IncomeCreating Passive Residual Income
Converting your net worth into streams of passive
residual income is the key to early retirement.
Passive steams of income are the key to
financing your lifestyle expenses with out
actively having to work for that money (what
some call ‘retirement’).
Cash flow properties (where rental income
exceeds all your expenses) produce
passive residual income.
Unlike the “nest egg” which is a finite sum
of money that gets gradually depleted as
you spend it, a stream of passive income
continues flowing....and you can even pass
it on to your heirs
So, why focus on a nest egg, when you can
have a goose that lays golden eggs?
Converting Passive ResidualConverting Passive Residual
Income into TimeIncome into Time
As your passive residual income increases,
you can increasingly re-capture your
time...so you can play that extra round of
golf on Tuesday afternoons, spend more
time with your family, or whatever is
important to you.
The more passive residual income you
have, the less active “work” you need to do
to cover your expenses.
And when it is enough to cover all your
lifestyle expenses then you can ‘retire’ or
declare yourself ‘financially free’.

Most people have their dreams beaten out of
them, forced to conform to the dictates of a job
(and other life obligations) that are less than
inspiring. The job becomes the core identity

comes around, many people get depressed
with idle time on their hands and loss of

It’s Up to You...It’s Up to You...
How do you want the remainder of your life to play out? Do you want to leave your
financial future in someone else’s hands, work until you are 65 and then live off
less money than you do now and hope you die before your ‘nest egg’ runs out?
Do you want to take control of your own financial future, own and control your
assets directly, retire on your terms, and have streams of passive residual income
that can finance your dream lifestyle and then be passed on to your heirs?
