EP110: Think $1 Million Is Enough to Retire? Think Again. - with Darryl Lyons

By Chris Peach

Author, speaker, entrepreneur and money-behavior expert Darryl Lyons is on the show today to talk to the middle class about our behavior with money. If you’re not on food stamps or you’re not vacationing on your yacht, then you and I both would be considered the middle class...and we have unique challenges. All of us our continually hyper-marketed to on a daily basis to get us to spend our money on “stuff” right now and putting off any kind of delayed gratification. Think about our credit cards, Amazon one-click, Apple-Pay, “Hey Alexa”, and all the other ways to spend money without really “feeling” money. Genius, right? But what happens when our spending doesn’t leave room for saving and we don’t save enough? Did you know that $1 million is no longer enough to retire with and saving 15% of your gross income still isn’t going to get you to your goals? And how much should you have saved at each age (30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80…)? How do you know when you have enough saved and what are things you should be doing to ensure you pivot into chapter two of life with enough to start chapter two. During our interview Darryl and I go over… Why $1 Million for Retirement Still Isn’t Enough The Ben vs Arthur Example The power of “Pause” How to create your “filters” so you don’t break the bank The science behind cash vs plastic How much you need at each age And why the word “retirement” may as well be a cuss word ;)   All the show notes, links and anything Darryl and I mentioned can be found at https://www.moneypeach.com/session110
